    The tale is one that explores the complexity of identity and reality. It's a genius play to have The Shadow act within the bounds of The Twilight Zone, considering The Shadow is just as much a mystery as is a classic episode of the 1950s-60s show. I'm intrigued by the story, the action, and the characters but what will keep this series engaging to a modern audience is the twist pulled into the fray with the inclusion of The Twilight Zone. If the next few issues are as good as this one then I can confidently say that writer David Avallone and artist Dave Acosta have an old-fashioned winner on their hands. Read Full Review

    Avallone and Acosta have picked up a daunting challenge.They have four issues to demonstrate that they are up to that challenge.Although it is too early to know for sure (this is a 4-issue miniseries; ask after the end of issue #4), it's looking good so far. Read Full Review

    The noir influenced art style manages to blend in oddly well into the natural strangeness of the twilight zone. I will admit I loved the beginning action scene as the fire fight begins. Even the small fight at the end, is well done with a strange amount of meta content. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given Apr 19, 2016

    By the end of this issue another enemy appears with the same question. Who is the Shadow? A fight ensues, but is any of this real? To be continued" All in all, it is a very satisfying read and I am eager to see where the next issue leads us. Is our hero turning to the dark side ala Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader? We'll have to wait and see. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Apr 21, 2016

    I am a Shadow fan and as such, I enjoyed the "world is not as it was" element of this book. With so much of The Shadow's world being about mysticism I am a little unsure of the need to incorporate The Twilight Zone element to act as the deus ex machina. Still, with a piece of Shadow history about to make an appearance next issue, my curiosity has definitely been piqued. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Apr 19, 2016

    The last page of the issue is intriguing, but not enough for me to continue with this series. Whatever The Shadow knows will have to be discovered without me (unless the second issue steps it up considerably). Read Full Review
