Frustrated by his loss and his inability to bring down the Red Empress, The Shadow fears he might be losing control of himself.  He seeks out the advice of a friend, lest he slip further and become an agent of vengeance, not justice.  Finally, The Master of Darkness finds his enemy's palatial lair.  Will The Shadow be able to infiltrate the sanctum of the Red Empress?  And what dark secrets await him there?

    While the series doesn't deliver the “death” of Margo Lane as promised, writer and artist Matt Wagner serves up something possibly even more damaging to the hero – Margo choosing to leave Lamont's side and his quest to enforce justice on an unjust world. With the close of the mini-series we don't see the effect of Margo's continued absence on the Shadow (something which would be interesting to explore as his spikes in violence since her supposed death seemed to foreshadow a darker path for the vigilante). Worth a look. Read Full Review
