Dynamite Announce David F. Walker and Bilquis Evely as Shaft Creative Team

Dynamite have been doing a week of announcements once again, with all kind of creators revealed as having new projects over at the company, special sales stuff going on – all sorts-a stuff, really. The biggest news so far is likely the announcement of a creative team for their relaunch of Shaft, however.

David F. Walker and Bilquis Evely will be the team for this one, along with Sanford Greene as cover artist (as seen above) and the below cover by Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz (swoon!)

Evely has been at Dynamite for a while now, providing work for books like the recent Doc Savage revival and Miss Fury – she’s been one of the best success stories amongst Dynamite’s roster of artists, so it’s no surprise that new work keeps coming along for her at the company.

Walker is a little more surprising, being a filmmaker and writer not especially known for comics work. In a post on his blog, he talks a little about the announcement:

The series will be steeped in the world created by author Ernest Tidyman, author of the Shaft books. It was with the help and the blessing of his widow, Chris Clark-Tidyman, that this project got off the ground. Dynamite has put a lot into this series, which debuts in December (just in time for my birthday). I’ll be posting more about it in the days, weeks, months, and hopefully, years to come.

An ongoing series, Shaft hits the streets once more this December. Just in time for my birthday, too!
