    Review: Here we go with another classic character from our pals over at Dynamite. The Shadow is a street level crime fighter set in the 40s New York City. The story begins with a bank robbery that peeks the attention of the Shadow. After some intense detective work he knows how to make his move against the bad guys. We also see some of his struggles of real life when he is not fighting crime in the city. The story was fun with a lot of exciting detective work. The art scheme by Timpano has a pulp feel with modern details and the colors are rich and full. The timey dialog and environments are very cool as well. This is a solid story with a legendary character. Its not far into the run so I recommend to start from the beginning, you wont be disappointed Read Full Review

    The Shadow #12 reminds readers of the resources the vigilante uses to in his one man war against crime along with plenty of action and some lighter moments between Lamont and Margo Lane. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Apr 24, 2013

    The Shadow #12 is a solid one-shot story that shows us how The Shadow deals with crime. It's one of those self-contained stories you get before a new story arc kicks off. It has a strong finish, but it doesn't go out on a high note 3/5 Read Full Review
