Picture if you will: in your own world, you're a fearsome crime fighter who stalks the night. But you wake up today in another world, where the fearsome crime fighter is just a character you play in a radio show that bears his name. You are no longer a man with a mission, just a 22 year old prodigy with an impressive voice, and a lot of questions... an honored guest who has been invited into... the Twilight Zone.

    Outright Geekery - Christopher Hitchcock May 9, 2016

    The story is a great exploration into who The Shadow is as a character and what's the difference between delivering justice to "The weak" and the real bad guys. It's a fantastic look at a character and I'm excited to read the next chapter and see just how far down does this rabbit hole go. Read Full Review

    I love the cover art, as it manages to capture the essence of the story extremely well. The art inside by Dave Acosta is realistic without it being overly gritty. The comic takes a clear inspiration from old noir films and comics. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given May 11, 2016

    ConclusionThe conclusion of this issue brings Preston face to face with a young fan that knows everything there is to know about the shadow. The young man describes Shadow stories with ease from memory and even finishes Preston's sentences for him. He knows the Shadow better than Preston himself and the final page shows us an end to this issue that brings about the promise of The Shadows origin in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 18, 2016

    I am a little concerned and a tad confused over the length of this min run. Taking the initial selling point, I honestly don't see this idea lasting any more than an extended book, such as a one shot. The repetitive nature of elements of this story don't help as I feel that I have already read part of this issue. Call me old-fashioned, but I like my characters to be in stories that impact them or propel them someplace. As such, I am having a hard time understanding the impact this series will have on The Shadow. Read Full Review
