Art work aside, this is an excellent series to get into. The characters are extremely well fleshed out, and all very likable. Justin Jordan continues to be an under the radar talent in the industry, but if he keeps putting out issues like Shadowman 10, he’ll be a big name soon.
8 out of 10
While some may be upset by this coming right after the events of the previous issue, I thought this story was more on par with the exceptional Zero issue, and is a haunting tale of the power and nature of Master Darque, while also acting as a stellar origin for the Shadowman lineage.
5 out of 5 stars
This is an origin story, which can often be simplistic and pedestrian, but this is an intriguing and engaging piece of storytelling which solidly stands on it’s own. This sets the stage nicely for Shadowman’s next story arc and this issue alone is all you need to know it’s going to be a doozy. Shadowman is underrated but it’s value is through the roof. Don’t pass on this title. It’s one of the best supernatural tales comics has to offer.

Jordan’s writing is superb, containing subtle parallels between issue #0 and 10. The art varies due to the different artists, but generally looks really great. While the last few issues have left something to be desired, this issue reminds me why I read this series.
