    Certainly miles better than Siege #1, this was a fantastic start. Read Full Review

    The artwork is the only reason that I’m not giving this one an A. It’s alright but feels like it should have been a little better for what this book looks to have going on. Still, I’m giving it an incredibly solid B and telling any fans of the Marvel Universe that you’ll most likely dig this one. Marvel’s New York City just got a whole lot more interesting...

    But that's only a small part of an issue that's mostly about Bullseye preparing to stab Daredevil in the face. And Diggle and Tan are good with Bullseye, and with stabbing. And the final page features, well, not really a surprise, but an exclamation point. "Shadowland" doesn't evoke the superior Bendis or Brubaker runs on "Daredevil," but it does have its own Shooter-era Marvel kind of appeal. It's "Gang War 2010," but with more superheroes, and I'm willing to give that a read. Read Full Review

    Odds are we'll be seeing Bullesye again. Even if it's another bait-and-switch the storyline of pushing Murdock down the dark path seems to be in full swing. And if it's real"well, that's a hell of a hard first step down a path of no redemption for the hero of Hell Kitchen to take in the first issue of this five month long event. Either way it should be an interesting few months for Daredevil readers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Richard George Jul 8, 2010

    Shadowland #1 is a simple-minded book, pursuing one goal and one goal alone. Admirable as that might be, its methodology of trying to get to said goal is wholly questionable in reasoning and utterly flawed in execution. And because it's so focused, those failures ripple through this entire first chapter like an earthquake through a skyscraper. Nothing here worked for me. And it's a shame because this event seemingly has all the right ingredients. They're just not on display in this first installment. Read Full Review
