    A must buy! This isn't even over yet, but I feel if this is not released as a collected work in hardcover it would be an incredible disservice to fans. Amazing, month after month. Highest possible recommendation! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Sep 4, 2013

    The Shadow: Year One is a great story for the greatest pulp hero of all. With ten issues, it sort of feels like things aren't as tight as they could be, but you can't really complain too much about getting more Shadow. Wagner is writing a very broad and ambitious story and hopefully we start to see things tightened up a little. Read Full Review

    Much of the issue is set aside for conversations between Lamont and Margo about her new role. These work fine, and show us the two have feelings for each other neither is likely to share anytime soon, but the action certainly picks up with the appearance of The Shadow and the bloody gunfight on the bridge for the money inside the armored cars and some terrific laughter-filled panels by artist Wilfredo Torres. Worth a look. Read Full Review
