    One thought on “The Shadow: Year One”

    1. At some points the story drags, at others, it rushes.A lot of times I would turn a page and thought I d skipped one Then when going back, I found that the story did indeed jump somewhere else without much coherence.The art varies, from good, to OK, to m eh.Overall it just seemed overly rushed.Too bad as I m usually a pretty big fan of Wagner, but this one just didn t do it for me.

    2. 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.Don t be fooled with the title Year One to think this is an origin story of The Shadow, although his origin is slightly hinted at with little details here and there Thus the author manages [...]

    3. I am a big The Shadow fan I think for the concept than the various executions of the characters I have read over the years What I loved about this collection is that I felt Matt Wagner managed to put a fresh spin on the character while not losing any of the history of the character We get one of the better explanations of this confusing character s origins is he Kent Allard Lamont Cranston, A Chinese warlord and a great The Shadow adventure to boot I think he invented the main villain of this s [...]

    4.

    5. Having on the most basic knowledge of The Shadow, I greatly enjoyed this introductory run on the character It s a fairly straightforward read with a few hints at The Shadow s past and training but still leaves an air of mystery around him Much like another Year One title out there, it starts off with a billionaire playboy returning home from an extended, exotic, and mysterious long term stay overseas Trouble ensues and a new force of vengeance and justice shows up on the scene, but the big quest [...]

    6. As writer, Matt Wagner has the right kind of pulp nous to capture the vigilante who s Batman minus the bullshit But the art Wilfredo Torres, with Brennan Wagner on colours is generally too bright and clear to convey the right noir feel An occasional splash page clicks, but in general I couldn t help feeling they d be a better fit for the Shadow s peer and antithesis Doc Savage.

    7. This should have been much better While there were some interesting moments, they were overshadowed no pun intended by stiff artwork and stereotypical characters than one can imagine Very disappointing.

    8. I was disappointed in this I loved Matt Wagner s Sandman Mystery Theatre, and I figured his version of The Shadow would be just as goodIt wasn t Denny O Neil and Mike Kaluta s 1973 version remains my favorite comic book adaptation of the character.

    9. Pretty nice Shadow story, really nice pulp feeling through the whole thing Sadly, the art was a bit rushed and the whole thing could ve been shorter.

    10. This is a good introduction re introduction to The Shadow Some things have changed from the original storyline, but overall I enjoyed it.
