The Shadow sets a trap for his foes, but neither Taro Kondo nor the fearsome Buffalo Wong are inclined to step into it without taking certain precautions. A night of slaughter in the Shanghai underworld sees Margo Lane learning just how high the stakes are, and how far her master will go to win his deadly game.

    It's hard to believe that this series is only three issues old. In that short amount of time, Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell have told a fast-paced globe-trotting story rich with action and character-development. This is the most nuanced and sophisticated takes on this character that I've ever seen and I can't wait to see where this team takes him. Read Full Review

    Let's face it you don't read a Garth Ennis story for flowers, candy, and love, no you read it for violence, and he has delivered in all three issues thus far. Let's hope that not only does the violence stay, but the great story telling does as well. Read Full Review

    This storyline is amazing with Ennis writing and the action driven art by Campbell. The feel of adventure, suspense, and the awesome cliffhangers make for an excellent read. Pick up the next issue of The Shadow because you want to know what evil lurks in the hearts of men and how The Shadow deals with it. Read Full Review

    Ennis is building his story so that its climactic moments will probably be spectacular. He's taken an established character and added some new traits that make him a more menacing figure. Couple that with mysticism, science fiction and violence, and you have a comic that is well suited to appeal to many comic book readers. Read Full Review
