    Shadecraft #3 takes the story to new heights that feel fun, fresh, and unpredictable. The most noteworthy addition is the arrival of Agent Angela Owens -- ultimately, time will tell if she's a friend or foe. Until that time comes, your guess is as good as mine. Read Full Review

The comic provides some direct answers for Zadie, her powers, and the nature of the shadow monsters. It also finds a way to directly link the teen drama to the supernatural monster attacks for the better. Read Full Review
