Review: The Twilight Zone: The Shadow #2
Picture if you will: in your own world, you’re a fearsome crime fighter who stalks the night. But you wake up today in another world, where the fearsome crime fighter is just a character you play in a radio show that bears his name. You are no longer a man with a mission, just a 22 year old prodigy with an impressive voice, and a lot of questions… an honored guest who has been invited into… the Twilight Zone.
The Twilight Zone: The Shadow #2 is a complex story and filled with a mix of noir, sci-fi, and the type of strangeness that can only be found in the Twilight Zone. Writer David Avallone nails the combination of all those genres together. I will admit the identity crisis the main character is intriguing, and well thought out. I’m curious to see if that will impact the story, as the character is split between three identities.
I love the cover art, as it manages to capture the essence of the story extremely well. The art inside by Dave Acosta is realistic without it being overly gritty. The comic takes a clear inspiration from old noir films and comics.
