I really enjoyed this book. I know nothing about the Shadow so I am reviewing this as purely a Batman fan. The story is good and the art work fits the story. I was not crazy about it when I first saw it, but it fit. Gives the comic great dark atmosphere. Even if the modeled one of the villains on...

An exhilarating crossover of mystery, death, action, and far more supernaturalism than Batman is usually afforded, while also lending more depth to Batman’s already ancient history. The artwork is exquisite.

Snyder and Orlando did a really solid job of meshing the 2 characters while bringing the Shadow to the modern day. In this version, the Shadow was actually many of Batman's trainers in disguise and was actually training Bruce Wayne to replace him one day. There's also an evil version of the Shado...

The concept of crossovers in superhero comics is as old as the medium itself. When two publishers collaborate on a story that have two creations join forces, things get weird, such as Archie Meets the Punisher. The Dark Knight is no stranger to the crossover either, as Batman has joined forces wi...

An Okay read. So its pretty cool that DC has been doing tons of crossovers with smaller publishers lately, brings us back to the 90s where everyone was doing crossovers! Overall the story was okay, but not the best. I liked the beginning where Batman was investigating into The Shadow, learning ab...

Disappointing, as - incorrectly judging a book by its cover - I thought this would be a kick-ass teaming of the two characters. The prologue was good . . . and then things went downhill from there. Admittedly I know more about Batman than the Shadow, but this story (especially with all the insist...

I had a difficult time following the story on this. I will admit that much of my difficulty is probably tied to my very, very limited knowledge of The Shadow, but with how the story was set up I really felt like The Shadow being so confusing was more a failure on the part of the writers than it w...

This is a hot mess! I was so looking forward to it! Batman is my favourite superhero and The Shadow is my favourite pulp masked hero. They are both vigilantes and both dark, brooding characters. A character match made in heaven. Instead what we get here is some weirdo, looney tune Shadow who is '...

I’ve always been a fan of Batman but I had a hard time understanding this one. I don’t know a lot about the shadow so that is probably my problem. I don’t think the lack of understanding was the writer’s fault but more so mine. Maybe once I learn more about the Shadow I will enjoy this comic more...

This is probably my favorite comic in 2017! I love Batman and I just found out about the Shadow this year; now the two superheroes are together in a story told by a team that include Scott Snyder, a writer who have written some of my favorite Batman stories.
The prologue in the beginning was well...
