    I've been a fan of many of the older pulp era heroes from the early 30's for some time, and I've loved Dynamite's comics over the past few years featuring those characters, and The Shadow Vol. 2 has been a favourite of mine on the weeks it is released. Yes, the series didn't start out as strongly as I'd have liked, but a lot of that was down to issue #1 being the second issue in the series (issue #0 being released several months before), and needing to fill readers in on previous events. Since the initial stumble the series has gone from strength to strength, and if you're not reading the series now, I'd keep an eye out for the trade. Read Full Review

    This second volume of The Shadow is ok. I am not enjoying it as much as the previous volume. Maybe it's the fact, that in my mind, The Shadow with his powers, should be more than capable to defeat this Society and as such, the big bad doesn't seem that bad. Whatever the reason, it is by far not the worst book out there, but I would like to see more quality across the board. Read Full Review

    I might read the next issue, not out of curiosity with how the story ends, but just because the book was a satisfying simple read. For all the shit we give Dynamite on this site (much of it well deserved I might add), this issue was a nice exception to my usual expectations. Read Full Review
