Now Bimonthly! The Shadow and Khan begin their endgames as a grudge match, 80 years in the making, enters its final stages.  The gang war the Shadow has created threatens to spiral out of control, even as Khan's manipulation of the underworld threatens to send New York spiraling into chaos.  Meanwhile, the Shadow's hastily-assembled network begins to show its weaknesses and Khan's granddaughter moves in for the kill.  It's plot and counter-plot in the penultimate issue of the pulp showdown.

    Things are reaching a boiling point in The Shadow Now #5 and what comes next will be that final showdown that we have waited for since the start of this book. Makes you almost wish this were an ongoing series considering that this is the kind of confrontation that you want from a hero and villain. One that goes beyond punching, and looks to actual tactics to claim victory. David Liss has made this a modern telling of The Shadow's story, but keeps everything that makes this pulp for those who are longtime fans of the character. Read Full Review

    The Shadow Now has been building and building for months, but this issue is where things really pay off and build up what is sure to be an epic showdown between The Shadow and Khan. Liss has made a very layered story that feels like a TV show in some ways, but he still proves there's a place for The Shadow in the modern world. Read Full Review
