    SHADOWMAN #4 continues the monster-of-the-month motif with enough artistic flair and writing creativity to keep readers invested for the next issue. The threat level feels mildly rushed but its made up for by dropping pieces to the larger puzzle of Deadsides master plan. Read Full Review

    'Shadowman' #4 brings Shadowman to a stark realization as he continues to be the stopgap against the Deadside from entering our world. It is an intoxicatingly eerie chapter with some of the best art you'll see this week or any week in comics.  Read Full Review

    This helps to retroactively contextualize the horrors that came before this chapter, while also priming the reader for some truly exciting encounters, all while witnessing Shadowman's attempts to do what's right in the face of seemingly insurmountable and malevolent odds. Read Full Review

    I think that one key element has been that we see a lot with this series how normal folks have reacted or been treated by the Deadside beings and it really helps ratchet up the threats that Shadowman faces. And Shadowman, while being a hero, isnt quite a superhero with this take. I hope when the book returns, its with this same creative team. They have done no wrongs on Shadowman and honestly, you can argue its the best weve gotten with the character in many years. Lets hope that the publishing break isnt a big one because whether its the entire four issues or just this fourth one, these stories are setting up something and should not be forgotten about.
