The Shadow/Batman #4 Review: Snowballing Despair

It’s not often that a comic book offers up what seems like true, impossible hopelessness — at least, not at the scale that The Shadow/Batman #4 brings to the table. Continuing the reveal of the Silent Seven’s reach, #4 is bathed in frustration and stress in a totally fantastic way. Writer Steve Orlando doesn’t let […]

The Shadow Vol. 3 #4 Review: The More the Merrier

Issue #4 of The Shadow Vol. 3 finds our mysterious burn victim back on the streets, bedecked in the iconic red and black of The Shadow. It looks as if we’ve finally got confirmation on his identity — not just with costuming, but classic black speech bubbles as well. Maria is certainly convinced; though the […]

Kevin Nowlan Shares His Process Art For The Shadow/Batman #4 Cover

When Dynamite announced they were doing The Shadow/Batman six-part series and it would be written by Steve Orlando and drawn by Giovanni Timpano, I was interested. When I found out that one of the covers for issue #4 was going to be by Kevin Nowlan, I was sold. Nowlan has always been one of my […]

The Shadow/Batman #1 Review: What Evil Lurks In The Hearts Of Bats

Batman and the Shadow are back with another fabulous team-up, this time with Steve Orlando in complete control of the script. A semi-sequel to the run we had earlier this year, in this six issue run we see the Dark Knight start on unequal footing. Out of Gotham — and seemingly out of luck when […]

Dynamite Has Sale On The Shadow To Go With New First Issue

One of my favorite heroes doesn’t originate in the comics. In 1930, pulp publisher Street & Smith wanted to boost sales of their Detective Story Magazine and hired an advertising agency to adapt the stories into a radio serial. One of their scriptwriters, Harry Engman Charlot, felt the serial needed a mysterious narrator to tie […]

Today we have an exclusive look inside the new Dynamite series The Shadow from Si Spurrier (X-Force) and Daniel HDR (Superman). For the better part of a century, the Shadow’s sinister laughter brought the chill of fear to evil-doers – but in our modern times, the streets of Manhattan have gone largely silent. But he is […]

Now that Batman has The Shadow cornered in the French Alps, he’s going to deliver some hard hitting Bat justice to Shadow over the death of Lamont Cranston, whom Batman is sure died at the hands of The Shadow.

What Fear Lurks In The Heart Of Batman: Batman/The Shadow #1 Review

Finally, a series I’m seriously excited for. My love of pulp heroes is strong, and when you combine any of them with Batman (a pulp-inspired hero), I’m pretty much the happiest little camper alive. The book is overall fantastic, but there were some things I didn’t enjoy, which I’ll get to in a minute. The […]
