PORTLAND, Ore. 5.4.2021 — Multiple issues of the bestselling series Shadecraft by Skyward creators Joe Henderson (showrunner of Netflix’s Lucifer) and Lee Garbett (Captain Marvel) have sold out yet again at the distributor level, prompting Image Comics to rush order reprints of both issues #1 and #2. The #1 reprint cover will be a color variation on the art collaboration by Jock and Garbett and the #2 reprint will feature new cover artwork by Garbett.
“We are THRILLED to send Shadecraft back to print!" said Henderson and Garbett. "Zadie’s story is a labor of love, and to see so many people enjoying her adventure is just wonderful! Guess all that time being scared of our own shadows paid off..."
In Shadecraft, readers meet Zadie Lu, who is afraid of her own shadow. She’s a teenager, so she REALLY should have grown out of it by now, right? But something weird is happening in her small town. Zadie could swear the shadows are coming to life. Watching her. Trying to KILL her. But how do you fight something you can’t even touch? And how does all of this tie into her FAMILY, of all things?
Shadecraft caught the early attention of Hollywood heavyweights at Netflix. The streaming platform preemptively picked up Shadecraft for a TV development deal with Henderson onboard to co-write the pilot with Georgia Lee and Garbett attached as a producer.
Shadecraft #1, third printing by Jock and Garbett (Diamond Code MAR219112) and Shadecraft #2, second printing by Garbett (Diamond Code MAR219111) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 2.
Shadecraft #3 Cover A by Garbett (Diamond Code MAR210224) and Shadecraft #3 Cover B by Jim Cheung (Diamond Code MAR210225) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 26.
Shadecraft will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
