Review: The Twilight Zone: The Shadow #1

He knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men… but who knows what lurks in the heart of The Shadow? Find out, in the first issue of this mind-blowing four-part storyline entitled “Shadow of a Doubt”, as the Master of Men takes a fateful step into that wondrous land bounded only by imagination: an area which we call… The Twilight Zone.

Just when I thought the Shadow couldn’t get stranger they thrust his alias into the Twilight Zone in The Twilight Zone: The Shadow. The combination makes this comic oddly brilliant as we meet a version of The Shadow where he wakes up after attacking a Nazi camp. Of course it only gets stranger as he begins to realize the world is very different.

The noir influenced art style manages to blend in oddly well into the natural strangeness of the twilight zone. I will admit I loved the beginning action scene as the fire fight begins. Even the small fight at the end, is well done with a strange amount of meta content.
