    Overall, a great collection of stories to commemorate a storied comic book character, who deserves more credit than he gets. Read Full Review

    Rather than a 48-page special, this really needed to be released as a trade paperback or in some format that would allow this tremendous group of storytellers full reign. Despite that editorial flaw, this is still a tremendous comic, well worth the time of any fan of THE SHADOW. Read Full Review

    With so many different tones and styles, chances are you will find one story that isn't to your liking, but thanks to the range of this book, you're almost guaranteed to find one that's worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    The Shadow #100 may not win any awards for best celebratory issue, and like most may very well be remembered for its poorer moments rather than it's stronger, but that doesn't stop it from being a decent read. Featuring some great art, and some intriguing stories that dip into the character's mythos, there's plenty to apatise long term fans, though at $7.99 it may not be quite as appealing to new readers.

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Jun 26, 2015

    Overall The Shadow #100 is more passable than great. The opening and closing stories are strong standouts as Ive said, but the bulk of material in the middle ends up tragically forgettable. What it really lacks is a sense of overarching cohesion, sometimes it wants to be a showcase of artwork using the Shadow as a convenient subject matter, sometimes its a meta-story revolving around the Shadows various media presences, and sometimes its just a very a simple crime fighter story. All these little pieces never add up to a coherent whole, leaving the reader undernourished by the end. Read Full Review
