    Stop it, Valiant. Just stop. My bank account is getting sick and tired of you making each $3.99 book a must buy. I don't even like the fantasy genre or most things magic related, so I was really hoping I could pass on SHADOWMAN -- but no, just like the other titles, it's exceptional. SHADOWMAN isn't a book crafted only for fans of the mystic arts and such -- it's made for anyone and everyone that wants to read a damn good story. The characters are varied and the development is solid, the art does an excellent job bringing the world to life and it's scattered with dialogue that'll put a smirk on your face. Well played, SHADOWMAN. Read Full Review

    Honestly, if Shadowman keeps being this consistently great, I am going to run out of adjectives to describe it. It is one of the best of Valiant's stellar lineup and if you aren't reading it, you really need to check it out. Read Full Review

    Zircher's art is brilliant, as usual. The scenes in the Deadside look especially great, thanks in part to some expert color work by Brian Reber. The dead glow and jump off the page, bringing an awesome sense of horror to the pages. Zircher's art has a photo realistic quality, but none of the stiffness that normally comes with that art style. Valiant did the right thing in scooping Zircher up, as he brings a lot to this book and the Valiant Universe as a whole. Shadowman simply looks incredible. Read Full Review

    There's nothing bad about this comic at all, but there's nothing that makes me say “holy crap” and make me champion the comic. I have a feeling it's a bit more fun for fans of the previous Shadowman comics, but for me, I shrugged my shoulders and say it's ok so far. Read Full Review

    All in all, this issue is definitely a solid read, first off New Orleans and mysticism is a no-brainer to go hand and hand. It’s a nice change from the usual places like New York and adds unique flavor to the book. If you’re a fan of the previous Shadowman runs I doubt you’ll be disappointed by this one. It’s off to a great start and at this pace it can only get better. Writer Justin Jordan knows how to mix humor, the occult and action without overdoing any one aspect. Slap that together with some solid art from Patrick Zircher and you’ve got a sure-win with Shadowman. Easy on the eyes and fun for the mind, do yourself a favor and give this a peep ya dig?
