THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH (ONE SHOT)
Ron Marz (w)
Ivan Rodriguez (a/c)
FC • 40 pages • $4.99 • Teen+
The fog-shrouded town of Innsmouth holds deep secrets. There are legends of inhuman creatures raised from the depths, of supernatural rites and elder gods from beyond. When Lamont Cranston and Margo Lane find themselves trapped in Innsmouth, terrible truths will surface … truths only the Shadow can know. Writer Ron Marz and artist Matthew Dow Smith tell a Shadow story like no other, placing the pulp avenger in H.P. Lovecraft’s famous setting for a truly inspired one-shot that could only be called “The Shadow Over Innsmouth.”

Masumi defeated the demon, but at a cost – Legion is now trapped within her samurai swords, and she is bound by the laws of the Yamamoto clan to ensure that the evil spirit never escapes. This is her story…

What aquatic hero is more recognizable by the general public?
