Review: The Twilight Zone: The Shadow #4

TZoneShadow04-Cov-A-Francavilla

The Shadow’s strange trip through time, space, and identity ends where it began: a Nazi Compound on Long Island. He confronts humiliation and death, justice and mercy, and some Shadows of his own. Submitted for your approval, the end of the Shadow’s odyssey through… the Twilight Zone.

The Shadow returns to his own reality, to find himself captive. Except he is a changed man, from his time spent exploring alternate versions of himself. It’s like he actually learned something from those strange journeys in the Twilight Zone. Writer David Avallone leaves us with a very interesting end epilogue that makes me one think.

The art by Dave Acosta returns to a much darker, and violent roots, as the Shadow returns to reality. Managing an almost radical shift the previous issues. That actually works well for it, as the final issue gets more graphic, and violet.
