The Shadow: The Light of the World - A Reveiw

Chris Roberson, Giovanni Timpano and Alex Ross
A Review

This is the third book in this new series of graphic novels featuring The Shadow and Margo Lane.  As always, Lamont Cranston and his associates are scattered throughout the city as they try to track down the villain known as The Lady of Light.  Having been trained by the members of ancient sect to fight evil however she perceives  in the most malecious of ways, she has brought her villainous methods to The Shadows city.  

The police do not seem to be making progress in solving the series of murders committed in the name of justice; and, though they are intent on stopping The Shadow from being involved in the investigation, he has no intentions of doing so.  The comic version of The Shadow reminds me of the old radio dramas that were part of my childhood - alas only as reruns even at that time.   

It was a pleasure to again read a story based on characters long gone.  I suspect that others will fill the same way.  I will look forward to future installments in the series.

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
