#17 Shadow Walker

| November 30, 2011 | 0 Comments

“Shadow Walker”.  That’s the name that police found scrawled on a wall near the site of a robbery.  As it turns out, the place that was robbed was a front company of a powerful Mafia family…and whoever Shadow Walker was, they left incriminating evidence of this connection.

Over the next few months, reports began to come in about Shadow Walker–a young woman wearing a dark, skintight outfit with a mask and long, silver hair.  Skilled in several martial arts, Shadow Walker was capable of taking down opponents much larger than her.  She never carried any weapons save for a taser-like device and pepper spray.  Plus, she robbed only places connected to the Mafia, distributing the money to needy families.

Police are frustrated–but somewhat happy–at Shadow Walker.  She’s left no evidence behind that could give a clue about her true identity.  On the other hand, she’s caused a lot of disarray among the city’s Mafia families and has become a hero to the average citizen.  Who is she, really?  Again, no one knows…but the police seem to be ignoring the fact that young police officer Nancy Harrison always seems tired at the start of the day shift, even though she’s never worked the night shift….

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.
