#BlackComicsMonth – April 14th – David Walker – SHAFT #5 Preview


David Walker’s SHAFT series is a #BlackComicsMonth favorite and issue #5 hits shelves tomorrow. Unfortunately, I have some bittersweet news about this Dynamite series. Issue #6 will be the last issue for SHAFT, Walker announced this heartbreaking news on twitter yesterday.

Well, let’s not be TOO down in the dumps, shall we? After all, Walker WILL be writing Cyborg’s FIRST SOLO BOOK for DC Comics along with Marvel’s Secret Wars: Battleworld #2 (of 4). Anywho, let’s preview SHAFT #5 from David Walker and Bilquis Evely.

The bodies have been piling up as private detective John Shaft has been searching for the missing Marisol DuPree. Now that he’s found her, all the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fit into place. Shaft finally knows what is going on, and why so many people around him have died. He thought he was done fighting wars. He thought he was done with the killing. But he was wrong. For men like Shaft, there’s always a war to be fought, and the killing always comes easy.
