    This book just hits it on all the right notes. I think this may end up sneaking up and being a huge hit this year, I know that’s a big call but it really is starting to show so much promise. Six issues in, I really hope Valiant can keep it up. Do yourself a favor, pick up Shadowman, you can't go wrong. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Apr 3, 2013

    As previously mentioned, having three artists working on a single issue is really starting to kill this title's momentum. In this issue we get Patrick Zircher, Lee Garbett, and Neil Edwards. They all do fine work, although it does feel like all the backgrounds suddenly disappear about half way through and some sections look way better than others. The real problem is these three guys have wildly different styles and the book is not structured to complement shifting art tones. You just turn the page and things look crazy different. It gives Shadowman #6 a clunky, oddly-paced feeling. This title used to be my favorite Valiant series, but it has slipped a bit the past two issues. Read Full Review

    Now that the creative team has a few issues under their belt, “Shadowman” is destined to either sink or swim in its second story arc. While issue #6 of “Shadowman” may falter at certain points artistically, Justin Jordan is still developing a strong story that needs horror fans will enjoy. Read Full Review

    If comic horror and zombies are your thing, you absolutely have to read Shadowman. If not, you should probably give it a try anyway. Valiant is doing another fine job of reinventing a fan favorite character so dont deprive yourself the pleasure of getting acquainted. Read Full Review
