A threat so titanic that it forces The Shadow to team-up with The Green Hornet! A plot so deadly that it involves real events in history and such famous and infamous people as Woodrow Wilson, Rasputin, J. Edgar Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Nikola Tesla! An unstoppable power will plunge the world into darkness... and no one but our two crime-fighting icons can stop it! Written by Michael Uslan, the originator and Executive Producer of the Batman movie franchise, including The Dark Knight trilogy.

    Uslan offers up a fast-paced and intense story that pulls you in from the first page. There's a lot of ideas thrown out and not everything is pulled together just yet, but the story has a great premise. The Green Hornet and The Shadow fighting Shiwan Khan and Hitler in WWII is something you cannot miss. Read Full Review

    Overall, a solid start to this Shadow/Green Hornet story, It might not be what you're expecting, but the historical backdrop should make it interesting regardless. I just hope we get to see some costume action with the two next time. Read Full Review

    The story has potential, that much I can say. Maybe this issue didn't show all of it, but the way it ended at least gives you some promise of how the story will play out and that is something worth reading. Good, could be better, but decent start all the same. Read Full Review

    The covers are worth noting, as they usually are from Dynamite. The main cover is done by Alex Ross who is one of my favorite artists. His style is very lifelike and each person truly looks unique as a result, and the painted result is just breathtaking. The alternate covers are just as nice " with one from John Cassaday (Uncanny Avengers, Astonishing X-Men) and another fun one from Chris Eliopoulos (from the kid covers to every Marvel NOW! relaunch book as well as a number of Dynamite books, including Battlestar Galactica). All 3 covers are unique in their own right " you can see the Alex Ross cover above and the other two are below. Read Full Review

    Maybe I am being too critical of what could be a promising series, but until I get my hands on more issues… I recommend you pass on this one. Read Full Review
