    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. This series gets better every issue. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Jun 25, 2021

    'Shadowman' continues to be a fantastic action-horror comic because of its A-list creative talent. Shadowman is on the case when the Deadside tries to merge into our world. Mystery and questions still remain in this entertaining supernatural thriller. If you like John Constantine you'll love Shadowman.  Read Full Review

    Shadowman #3 is a continuation of outstanding single issues. This relaunch has been absolutely fantastic and Im excited about where this is going. The creative team is doing some big-time work on the book and after reading this issue, I want more. Shadowmans story is beautiful, dark and disturbing, and every bit captivating. If you are looking for something a bit different than your typical fare, Shadowman is that book. Read Full Review

    SHADOWMAN #3 continues to tell solid, entertaining, episodic stories while dropping enough breadcrumbs to keep the over-arching plot moving. The art is grounded and gory in all the best ways, and the writing is clear and satisfying. Read Full Review

    The detail in the artwork and various layouts of the pages also need to be commended, as they really add to the overall enjoyment of the story. The covers by Jon Davis-Hunt, Tyler Kirkham, Erica Henderson & Robbi Rodriguez are all very well done.  Read Full Review

    Shadowman #3 increases the stakes tenfold while revealing Shadowman is very capable of getting beaten. The implications of the ending are so huge I dare you to not want Shadowman #4 as soon as possible. This series continues to expand on the legacy of the character with a strong visual aesthetic.

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jun 24, 2021

    Issue #3 plots can be tricky, you've captured your audience in the first few issues, do you keep up the momentum or develop the story and characters? Bunn and the team have carefully balanced this mix with an amazing third issue revealing secrets while ramping up the horror vibe. The Pallbearer character had hints of the WWE Undertaker which I'm sure were deliberate. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Jun 23, 2021

    A horrific story about death and the beyond told in a complete engaging and entertaining way. When you have a heroic character dabbling in dark arts you never know what's going to happen or where you will end up but one thing you know about this series is it will keep you gripped the entire time and craving the next issue as soon as you finish this.

    Knowing writer Cullen Bunn's history and previous work, all of this disorienting information will surely build towards something that will make it all make sense in retrospect, but, much like the main character himself, this issue will leave you feeling like you're still stuck in the shadows.
