    The Shadow Now is surely the beginning of a battle between the greatest pulp hero and villain of all time. Both know each other well enough and that alone makes this just as much a fight to see who can out think the other and keep the other on their toes. Colton Worley yet continues to amaze with his work on art. I'd point out that the way this book is laid out works to its advantage being able to have these scenes move with ease and doesn't drag anything on more than it should. Keeps the pacing for those moments of action swift and intense. The way these characters look again is amazing as Worely is able to bring them to life. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Dec 4, 2013

    Liss and Worley work well together, whether it's this series or their previous work on The Spider's earlier issues. Keeping this a mini-series was the best idea with The Shadow already having a few titles with him in it another ongoing would be too much. Just coming in and giving us a fun and straight forward story makes for a pleasant read. If you aren't familiar with The Shadow then this might not be the best series to jump in at, this series is more for established fans of the character and is just a fun twist on the original The Shadow mythos.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Dec 4, 2013

    The Shadow Now has a brilliant premise, but a few of the kinks still need to be ironed out. Liss has laid out an interesting story with some update characters that show how The Shadow could fit into the modern world. Now that we're at the halfway point, hopefully things will be taken to the next level. Read Full Review

    Maybe The Shadow, Now will get better with time, but as it stands this was a series downgrade and as such I can't recommend it. Read Full Review
