Revolutionary Part 1 (of 4) - The Shadow traveled to Nepal to investigate a strange glitch in his mystic Powers. He left with only partial answers. Now The Shadow and Miles Crofton, his pilot and sidekick, pause in Paris to take on some gun runners who are smuggling weapons bound for Spain. But a dark-eyed Spanish beauty named Esmeralda complicates matters when Cranston is unable to determine her intentions. The Shadow finds himself smack dab in the middle of the Spanish Civil War as he juggles the fate of a single solider who might help shape the future of humanity.

    The first issue in the “Revolutionary” arc shows a fantastic beginning for the new team and has instilled creative new energy into an already thriving title. Even Aaron Campbell’s art seems to have taken on a new, more Shadow-y tone. I have great expectations for the future of The Shadow with Gischler on board and can’t wait to see where this arc takes the story. For anyone who hasn’t been reading, this issue is the perfect place to start. Read Full Review

    The Shadow #8 is a great pick up for any comic reader, fan of The Shadow or not. This issue is a good starting point if any new readers want a dark mystery comic with great action panels. It was written with a clear understanding and every panel was laid out very uniquely, to the point that after reading each page I would take a few extra seconds to admire the detail put into it. I absolutely recommend this comic to any comic reader out there. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 30, 2012

    Writer Victor Gischler does a good job setting up several pieces of a larger mystery without giving us, or The Shadow, a clue as to the true purpose of his journey to Spain. I'm not as fond of Aaron Campbell's art as Herbert‘s work from last month's issue but it's not enough to stop me from coming back to see how this story plays out. Worth a look. Read Full Review
