Have you heard of the pulp 1930s era superhero name the Shadow? He’s one of the oldest superheroes from the pulp age whom the creator of Batman “borrowed” the concept of the Shadow (I am saying this as a fan of Batman).  Older generations would hear about the adventures of the Shadow on Radio; that was way before my time.  In this modern retelling of the Shadow you see that the character the Shadow fight crime and pursue a mystery with twists and turns.  As someone who love the references to the 1930s in comics this satisfied my interests and the story was worthwhile!  I am glad Dynamite Entertainment have printed this story about the Shadow on trade paperback collecting all the issues for this story arc and I hope they would have more stories of the Shadow in the future (I think I am almost done with all their recent stories of the Shadows that they published).

This is a longer story of the pulp comic book hero known as “The Shadow.”  Not that I’m complaining about it being longer but rather I see it as a delight since this past year I have been immensely enjoying the stories and the character of “The Shadow.”  If you enjoy other titles on the Shadow you will enjoy this one.
