All Nathaniel wanted was a job as the qualified Doctor he is. A way to prove his worth to the world.  He knew asking for money from the mob was a deal with the Devil, but what choice did he have?  If he didn't, it meant failure.  And that would prove everyone else right.

So, he was willing to go back to the life he had left behind.  He was willing to sign on the Devil's dotted line. If, of course, Al Capone was willing to have him.

    Shadow Doctor blew me away in its first issue and the second is just as strong, if not more so with the foundations already setup. The story of Nathaniel is engaging in the main pieces we've seen so far and I hope Calloway is able to take us through much more of his life over the course of it than just these early years as I imagine there are a lot of good tales to come from it, or at the least, engaging views to express through someone that lived through all of this just under a hundred years ago. Georges Jeanty has put together another fantastic looking installment and the book as a whole is just brilliant – except for the covers that seem to actively work against it. Read Full Review

    And it's a really interesting story. What happens in Shadow Doctor #2 is unexpected with ups and downs and some really fascinating twists. The fact that this true has sucked me in even more. I have to know what happens next for Nathaniel and where the story goes. For those that enjoy mob and crime stories, this is a must. For those that like history, this is a must. And for those that enjoy history about race in America, this absolutely is a must. Shadow Doctor #2 is one of the most original comics on the shelf and beyond engaging. Read Full Review

    There are hundreds of adaptations of Capone out there and this one definitely leans on the more sympathetic side of the crime boss' legacy. But it's also not afraid to show the warts of Capone's quick temper and casual racism, making him feel more fully formed as a character. Read Full Review

    Nathaniel Calloway is desperate to make it as a doctor during the Prohibition-era in Chicago. Due to the color of his skin, he is unfortunately unable to find work at any Chicago hospital nor is he able to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice. Now he has turned to someone from his past, Al Capone. However, asking for money from the mob is like making a deal with the Devil. Out of options, he has no other choice but to ask for this deal so he can have a chance to more
