    All things considered, The Shadow #13 is a likely candidate for one of the best in the series so far. The initial plot set-up easily lends itself to a giddy anticipation between issues, and the exciting nature of this mystery will likely hold its ground as a great reread upon a return to the arc. The creative teams that have gotten the privilege of working on this timeless character have not disappointed long-time fans and this certainly remains the case with #13. Read Full Review

    It did feel as though the dialogue fell a bit flat, but overall it was solid for what's to come next. Read Full Review

    The Shadow #13 is a solid start for Roberson. We have an intriguing story at work with a mysterious killer who looks like a nun. You're left wanting more Shadow, but Roberson handles Lamont well enough to keep you turning the page. It's a good story that suffers a little from a few odd art choices. The next issue looks promising and I believe we'll be running along smoothly in no time. 3.5/5Follow @comicbtherapy Read Full Review

    It may not be quite as good as the last few issues of the series, but it's still worth a look for fans of the character. It will be interesting to see how complex The Light's motivations truly are, and how she views another “soul stained by darkness and shadow.” For fans. Read Full Review
