    "A wild ride full of history, emotion, and (once again) more action than one series should be allowed to have." Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 16, 2019

    Shadowman #11 was worth the wait as the story which has changed Shadowman's fate forever. This creative team gave us everything we wanted and more when anticipating the return to form for this hero. There was adventure, discovery, exploration, and so much more when Jack and Alyssa gave us a dynamic that is so far memorable for the Valiant Universe. What I appreciated most about this run is that we got more than four issues. There was so much to address about this character that there was no way that we could only get another mini. Valiant treated us for our patience and these eleven issues were more than enough to satisfy your supernatural needs. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Jan 16, 2019

    The end of this arc provides a satisfying conclusion to Jack's struggle with the loa and his battle against the Darques. The issue delivers the right amount of action, enough resolution to the character arc and a good promise of a more intriguing adventure to come. Shadowman continues its streak of reliable storytelling. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Jan 28, 2019

    In traditional Valiant form the story does wrap up in the 4 issue structure but in this instance it feels a bit rushed which is unusual for the brand. The addition in the last issue or so of another artist to fill in some pages is also somewhat detracting from the INSANELY beautiful color pencil inspired art of Renato Guedes. That being said if youre a Shadowman fan, enjoy mystery and mysticism or a reader of comics like Doctor Strange, Curse of Brimstone, or even the Punisher then this action filled tale will have something for you in it. Andy Diggles writing is solid even when it feels like hes being forced to push things forward faster than youd usually see in a story like this and Guedes art will make your eyes gluttonous wanting to devour more of it as you absorb each panel.

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Jan 16, 2019

    As a conclusion to an eleven issue run, this is a strong comic. Diggle puts a cherry on top of a run that's added a lot to Shadowman's lore whilst wrapping up the story satisfactorily. Although you're not likely to buy this issue if you haven't at least read the final arc, you can at least rest assured that once you've caught up, this is a really solid cap to a brilliant run. I'm looking forward to seeing what Andy Diggle has in store for us next. Read Full Review

    This team have successfully rebooted a beloved and complex character and story and executed it better than I could have imagined. And as a special treat for those of us who have followed along, they present this wonderful final issue as a gift. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stacy Baugher Jan 18, 2019

    Shadowman #11 is a product that feels, to me, as if it could have used another issue or a double sized special to give the story room to stretch out and feel more complete. All of the story beats are hit, I believe all of the plot lines were tied up, but it feels too rushed. It is a shame, because up to this point the series had been excellent and unique and a must read on my list.SHADOWMAN #11 wraps up the Rag and Bone storyline, but seems like it needed more. IN BOLD, summarize what I thought of the issue and why I think the reader may be interested. Read Full Review
