    Altered States: The Shadow #1 is a fun read detailing The Shadow's adventures in the future as he discovers a whole new type of evil outside the hearts of men. You want to find out how The Shadow will fare against this alien invasion as he takes on the role of a general foregoing his front-line fighter duties. Rodriguez's artwork captures the galactic feel although he does overdo it with the energy blasts. If you have a few extra bucks hanging around, this is a fun, exciting read allowing you to escape reality for just a few moments. Read Full Review

    Unlike all the other Altered States that I've read this is the only one I DON'T want to revisit even though it sets itself up to be revisited. I think if you went back and retold Vampirella, Red Sonja or Doc Savage you could create some really killer mini-series out of that. This? I don't really care to see The Shadow in space with the same essential plot as Ender's Game. That's what this was setting up, Ender's Game with The Shadow. I can't really think of anything interesting to do with that. So, I applaud the better use of your one-shot storytelling but I can't really recommend the story sadly. However I'll keep trying hoping that one of these Altered States will knock me out of my seat. Read Full Review
