Each of Dynamite Entertainment’s six Shaft comic books penned by David F. Walker will contain a download link, via a QR reader, to a short novel by Walker entitled Shaft’s Revenge. This is the first original prose work to feature Ernest Tidyman’s creation since the original books went out of print in the late 1970s.
As yet there are no details of plot or setting, but Walker’s desire to portray his Shaft in line with the character seen in Tidyman’s novels suggests fans of the books are in for a treat. Shaft #1 comic book is on sale on 3 December 2014 and #2 on 14 January.
Google have published preview pages from Shaft #1 in their Books section.
