    I feel so lucky to have had this amazing opportunity to review this Shadowman series, and Bunn has done a fantastic job. This event is a great end, and I can't wait for what happens next. Book of Shadows is going to change everything, again. And I can't wait to see what new and old characters show up. I also can't wait to review it! Make sure to order Book of Shadows, it comes out in July! Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, the final chapter of The Deadside War did what I had hoped it would, and took everything that Bunn had been building and wraps almost all of it up brilliantly. I say almost everything, because there's the deliberate loose ends that will be chased in the next arc – Book Of Shadows – and I'm looking forward to that even more than I was before I read this issue. For my money, Cullen Bunn's Shadowman has earned its place as one of Valiant's top books since the relaunch a decade ago. Read Full Review

    SHADOWMAN #8 is a stellar capper to the Shadow War event. The writing is top-notch from beginning to end, the conclusion is as satisfying as it is unexpected, and the art team is firing on all cylinders. Valiant couldnt hope for a better ending to one of the best events going. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 12, 2022

    Shadowman #8 is a good finale, but it limps along at times with heavy exposition and characters talking more than taking action. There are big-beat moments to enjoy, however, and the story leaves you wanting more. For most superhero comics, that's an absolute win. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Apr 13, 2022

    Our cravings for supernatural adventures between demonic forces are surely satiated, and the book stands out above its competitors in the genre, yet by merely being "pretty good," we're still left feeling a bit underwhelmed with the resolution. Read Full Review
