    There's a touch more development when it comes to the plot with this issue than last, and once again the comic is visually spectacular. I said it last month and I'll say it again – some of the pages here should make non-comics folks rethink their definition of fine art. Ive every intention of adding this to my collection on release day, becauseShadowman #9is another brilliant addition to the Valiant library and is once again one of the best visual experiences Ive had in comics.

    Like any good suspense thriller there is the moment when the imperiled pair separate and the audience is compelled to shout "don't go in there." This new chapter of Shadowman gets into the thick of the conspiracy without delay. Read Full Review

    Shadowman #9 was just how you hoped for things to turn out from this confrontation. I think we all knew how things would go down, but it all came down to the execution of scenes up to that point. That I would say made a big difference when everything comes down to setting an atmosphere for the supernatural world and showing us things we aren't actually prepared for. Read Full Review

    I believe there are only two more issues left in this series and I'm really okay with this one ending. I still don't think Shadowman has had a really good series yet, at least not one that does the character justice. So maybe, down the line, some other writer can take a crack at him and hopefully get it right. Read Full Review
