All the mysteries will be solved as the Shadow and the Light face one another in a final confrontation high above the streets of New York! Two knights, each dedicated to a very different moral code, in a duel to the death!

    Overall this was an epic conclusion to the Shadow vs the Light. Timpano's focus on light and dark emphasized the story being told. From Esclarmonde's past, to the glow that radiates from her and the Shadow when face to face. Again I have to mention the layout of the panels which really makes the book very appealing, not something you see in other books that often. Funny enough Margo said what I was thinking throughout the whole issue, while they were fighting over what they stand for, a lot of it was debating. In reality that is the type of thinking that separates heroes from villains. If you are a fan of a great pulp story, or just The Shadow in general, this is a must read and one of the best that Dynamite has to offer. Read Full Review

    I loved this story and this art. This is what you show people if they ask, “Is The Shadow any good?” Highest possible recommendation! Read Full Review

    The issue comes to a close with The Shadow victorious, but the inability of the police to discover a body in the river suggests we may not have seen the last of The Light nor her mission. Worth a look. Read Full Review
