The circumstances that led Mary's mysterious burn patient to her hospital are becoming clearer - but is this horribly hurt man really the Shadow? And what is his connection with the millionaire Worthy Delaney, an advisor to the newly elected President Wyatt? Meanwhile, Mary and her sister Luisa begin an investigation of their own into a Shadow fan-site - because if the information there lets people make the connection with her patient, the Shadow is in grave danger!

    Comic Bastards - Justin McCarty Sep 13, 2017

    I am probably biased because of my very long love of The Shadow, and it may be too early to say, but I really think The Shadow Vol. 3 will be one of the best Shadow series ever. Read Full Review

    After the events of Shadow #2, the mystery behind Mary's burn patient is becoming clearer with everyone seeming to be on the same train of thought about the vanished vigilante. Considering the setting of his story, I'm glad that they have found a way to properly play into the legend of the Shadow. He is someone to be both feared and praised, for better or for worse with current circumstances. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Sep 13, 2017

    As far as pulp-style stories go, this has been a fun series up to date. I actually can’t wait to read more. I really enjoy that not one beat is wasted within the story and that Spurrier and Watters are making sure to tie everything together. Read Full Review

    Si Spurrier and Dan Watters are slowly building a beautifully rich story, and while that left Issue #1 not really going anywhere, Issue #2 does a great job building tension as well as building up the plot. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Ray Blakey Sep 9, 2017

    It was good, solid, well-rendered comic book art. Completely adequate to the task at hand. Not bad, but nothing that really stood out from any other book on the shelves these days. But the artist was the most competent storyteller of the entire creative team. I'm not kidding when I say that the artist was the only guide that kept the reader from getting completely lost in such a muddled, mess of story telling. I knew where characters were supposed to be and who they were supposed to be. I may not have been wowed, but at least I kept my bearings. Read Full Review

    This is the first Shadow series I have been reading. I read the last book and this one. I think the story is good so far and I have been really enjoying it. The art is a really interesting style I have not seen too often. Really makes this book one of the better ones.

    Ok the Flashpoint thing begin to become a little boring.
    I like the art. I don't see where the writer want to lead us.
    For now I don't have the part of mystery & shadowing power I hoped for.
    The part with the ring was very good through.
    I will not take the 3... Sorry.
