    The Shadow: Year One is a great new look at one of the greatest pulp heroes ever. It gives us some details on how Lamont and Margo came together, but it's still a big mystery on how everything led up to Lamont taking on his famous alter ego. This is the way to do an origin story.

    The Shadow: Year One #2 is a well thought out extension that not only begins to fill in some gaps, but it also gives reason and rhyme to the essential parts of the franchise. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I have mixed feelings about Margo recognizing Lamont Cranston as The Shadow so easily. I know she's to become his Girl Friday, but the series of events feels a tad rushed for my tastes. There's also an interesting scene during the party concerning the new Bela Lugosi movie which Cranston overhears and uses to help form the look and theatrics of the vigilante who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men. Worth a look. Read Full Review
