While hot on the trail of the deadly and elusive Red Empress, The Shadow attempts to rescue a missing heiress he is convinced was kidnapped by the Tong crime leader. Falling into the Chinese gang's elaborate trap, The Master of Darkness must find a way to escape certain death. All the while, Margo Lane and Moe Shrevnitz stand watch for any sign of trouble. Will Margo be able to assist her friend and companion? Or will the Tong death scenario claim her life as well? From the pen and talents of Eisner Award-winner, Matt Wagner, comes a tale of adventure and romance that will shake The Shadow's world to its very core. With colors by rising talent Brennan Wagner, this five-issue series delivers the sort of pulp action that Shadow fans have loved for decades.

    The book's title pretty much gives the game away to some extent. Story wise, there are enough hints that all is not what is seems to give even the newest comic book reader a sense that there may be a switcheroo in the very near future. Still, when the book reads this well and looks this good, you just sit back and enjoy taxi ride. Read Full Review

    A “Must Read” for fans of action, adventure, and heartbreak. It doesn't get better than this. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 22, 2016

    Regardless as to whether Margo has indeed met her end, the Shadow believes this is the case allowing Matt Wagner to play with the character's guilt over her demise and fuel his quest to find the Red Empress with a thirst for vengeance. It also allows the Shadow to take certain liberties, such as reading Margo's journals of her relationship with Lamont Crane and his alter-ego, which he would otherwise not indulge in. Worth a look.

    It seems most unlikely that Margo is dead, and so far this series has yet to grab me.
