    Shadow Service is another surprise hit from Vault Comics who continue to deliver fresh new comics. This story connects with me because of my admiration for Hellblazer and Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics while creating something new that excites me. I like a cliffhanger and issue number 2 has left me dangling dangerously on the edge where I don't even think Sly Stalone could save me from. I need issue 3 now! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 23, 2020

    Shadow Service #2 is an excellent second issue and this is probably my favorite new series out there right now. The creative team has captured me with this new character and story. While we have seen elements of this type of story a lot the way the creative team has brought them together delivers a splendid character and world that captures the imagination. This has become one of those series I can't what to get the next issue in my hands and one everyone should be reading! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 24, 2020

    I like a good modern magic series and this one has a lot of the right elements to it. Scott and Howell definitely have their lead figured out and the more we see of her the better I like her and understand her, even if she makes some foolish mistakes along the way. The worldbuilding is definitely interesting and I like what we've seen but it hasn't gelled together in a good way yet that makes sense and feels cohesive that I can wrap my head around. But the expansions are intriguing and there's a lot to like as we start getting a sense of the bigger picture wit what this particular group is up to in defense of the kingdom. Read Full Review
