    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone May 25, 2021

    Shadowman is a series where both writer and artist are at the top of their game. The story is dark and scary but also fun with some subtle humour while the artwork is clean, crisp and very stylish. I guessed I would like Shadowman but I never thought I would like it this much as its quickly becoming one of my favourite comics out right now. When a comic does so much right and there is nothing I didn't like, it makes scoring very easy. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Gonzalo M May 30, 2021

    Shadowman #2 is a perfectly paced story that's giving us enough room to squirm in our seats but not enough room to feel comfortable, and all we can do is face the horrors of the dead side head-on. We're witnessing the layers of the plot slowly reveal then turn to ash with every foe Jack dissects. Furthermore, I feel as though we finally see a better in-depth look into the mind of Shadowman. This is, in my opinion, the best book on the stands and a certified page-turner. Read Full Review

    As a series, Shadowman is easily one of the best things Valiant has put out in a long time, and for my money is the best thing on the racks right now. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - glimmer0415 May 26, 2021

    In my opinion, Shadowman is thus far the best series Valiant has published in a long time. Shadowman #2 is a great follow-up issue to a successful first issue. If you havent been reading  Shadowman but are thinking about trying it out, I would highly recommend you do! Even if you cant get your hands on issue #1, Shadowman #2 gives new readers plenty of backstory to jump aboard. Its well worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez May 26, 2021

    SHADOWMAN #2 is a near-perfect example of episodic comic storytelling done right. The art is captivating and the story hooks you with a clean adventure that leaves just enough crumbs to build anticipation for something bigger. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 25, 2021

    Shadowman #2 is a good second chapter that opens with a great horror stinger, calls back to it, and offers up plenty of monster action. The bigger mystery in play continues to be vague, but Shadowman himself is an intriguing figure well worth following along with. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea May 26, 2021

    'Shadowman' is as focused and accessible as this Valiant title has ever been. Just Shadowman walking the earth and fighting evil wherever it may be. It's pretty straight forward and fun as hell. This is an exceptional horror adventure series that's terrifying in an exhilarating way with a cool leading man.    Read Full Review

    While there's surely an overall narrative to this issue, the main highlight is seeing Shadowman going head to head with a ghastly beast, which is as creepy and entertaining as a fan would like. Read Full Review
