Review: Shadow Doctor #5

Shadow Doctor #5

Shadow Doctor has been an amazing series in its five-issue run. The history it dove into. The story it told. Both are so rich and the series provided a new perspective into our world and history. Shadow Doctor #5 wraps up this story of Nathaniel Calloway, the grandfather of the comic writer Peter Calloway. Nathaniel was a doctor in the 1930s who when he couldn’t get a loan to start a practice turned to his “friend” Al Capone to start one. In return, Capone would send his men to Calloway for injuries and to be treated. It’s a riveting true-life story that paints Capone in a new and interesting way and delivers a tense piece of history in its narrative.

Shadow Doctor #5 wraps up what is a gangster story from a different perspective. Beyond the expected bullets and blood, the series delivers a story about a man who is forced to do bad in order to do good. Nathan knows by healing Capone’s men he extends the war they are having with a rival gang. That results in more individuals getting hurt and dying. Nathan also knows if he doesn’t, Capone will not be happy and who knows what he’ll do. The series presents a man full of regrets but struggling with a moral quandary. Though he is doing bad, it has allowed him to open a clinic to help his neighborhood, one that is underserved.

Shadow Doctor #5 ups the tension even further as Nathan is approached with a demand from a rival gang. The issue cements that there’s few good choices left for him forcing his hand as to what to do next.

And, that might be the worst part of the issue! It abruptly ends leaving readers wanting more (not a bad thing). We know Nathan lives since he’s telling the story but it’s the next step that could become even more tension-filled. Here’s hoping we get another volume that tells more of the story.

The art by George Jeanty continues to impress. There’s a solid look to the series that screams its time period. With color by Juancho! and lettering by Charles Pritchett, the series feels like the time period it takes place in its design and details as well as the artwork style. There’s also a solid use of letting the reader really imagine the damage from Capone’s war and the bloody messes left on Nathan’s table. It’d easy for the art to use shock but instead it plays things in a conservative way.

Shadow Doctor #5 is a fantastic finale that leaves the reader wanting more. It’s a great use of the comic medium that highlights an interesting part of American history. It does it all in a gripping and engaging way. One of the best comic releases this year.

Review: Shadow Doctor #4

Shadow Doctor #4

There are comics that you read that stand out. Shadow Doctor has been that series for me. The story focuses on Nathaniel Calloway the grandfather of the writer of the series. In the 1930s, Nathaniel became a doctor and struggled to open a practice of his own due to the color of his skin. To raise the funds, he turns to Al Capone, an old friend of his, for help. This is his true story about his regrets and triumphs and it’s a story so amazing it’s hard to believe it’s true. Shadow Doctor #4 continues the wild ride as Nathaniel reflects on his death bed the spiral his decision to Capone caused while also delivering a glimmer of hope.

Written by Peter Calloway, Shadow Doctor #4 is a solemn issue in many ways. Nathaniel reflects on what it meant to go to Capone for help. He was now the mob’s doctor. In the evenings he had to fix wounds from battle which then healed the criminals to go out and do more harm. As a doctor, he had an obligation to heal but in his role he was only causing more harm. He was also caught in a tight spot as he wasn’t reporting what he was seeing to the police making him in Capone’s pocket even more than he already was.

Calloway does an amazing job of depicting the tough spot and regrets his grandfather had about what he did. There’s a clear sadness and understanding his actions caused more harm and death. But, Peter also gives us hope. In a part of the comic that reverberates today, Nathaniel discusses how the Black community saw him as the “devil”. They didn’t trust the science or medicine and refused to go to him for help. The White community did as well as they didn’t want to be cared for by a Black man. That left his days empty while his evenings he took care of the mob.

It’s an interesting part of the comic as we see some of these issues today. The African American community has an understandable distrust in medicine due to hundreds of years of mistreatment. COVID vaccinations for example lag in the community due to that mistrust as structural issues. It’s interesting that things haven’t changed in almost 100 years. Understandably so.

The art by Georges Jeanty is fantastic. With color by Juancho! and lettering by Charles Pritchett, Nathaniel’s regrets are almost catalogued panel by panel. We see Nathaniel pull out bullets and stitch up stab wounds. As he reflects on counting all of the damage from war he healed, we too see the sadness. It’s presented as almost Nathaniel is trying to remember them all in that moment. We the reader are forced to witness it all. But, through all of that, there’s hope. The latter half of the comic gives us a glimmer of good and the last panel is an almost 180 from the sadness that preceded it.

Shadow Doctor #4 is another amazing issue in an amazing story. Its details reverberate today in many ways and it serves as a reminder of how things haven’t changed and for good reason. We as a nation are still paying for the crimes committed. Shadow Doctor #4 is a reminder that there is still so much more work to be done.

Review: Shadow Doctor #3

Shadow Doctor #3

Shadow Doctor has been an amazing series. It’s based on the true story of Nathaniel Calloway, an African-American doctor in the 1930s who turns to Al Capone for money to open a medical practice. The story seems so fantastical but the fact it’s reality makes it all the more intriguing. Shadow Doctor #3 has Nathaniel starting to feel the pinch from Capone. An attack has injured one of Capone’s crew and Capone wants Nathaniel to operate in the new doctor office he has provided. With a gun pointed at him, the issue builds tension as Nathaniel doesn’t have the equipment to do what needs to be done.

Written by Peter Calloway, Shadow Doctor #3 is a tense medical thriller. We’ve been told Nathaniel has the knowledge as a doctor but haven’t seen him perform. Here, he’s given a difficult task to achieve a miracle without the equipment needed. It’s an interesting combination as he has a gun literally pointed at him. The tension is a little undercut in that we know Nathaniel survives the stand-off. He’s the one telling the story. So, some of the threat is diminished. Still, it’s interesting to see how he deals with Capone and how Capone reacts. What I know of the gangster is mostly through film so this comic delivers a perspective of someone who knows him. It has created a more complicated picture of him and his life. As much as this is a story about Nathaniel, it’s also a first-person perspective of what one of the US’s most infamous criminals was really like.

The art by George Jeanty is fantastic. With color by Juancho! and lettering by Charles Pritchett, the visuals capture the situation so well. There’s a griminess to Nathaniel’s new office emphasizing how this isn’t an ideal location to perform surgery. The stand-off between Nathaniel and Capone is done well really conveying the emotion of it all. There is a drop-off in some detail, especially around faces but at times it really works in a way to capture the moment.

Shadow Doctor #3 is a fantastic issue. It gives us more of who Nathaniel is. By combining his current situation and some flashbacks to his time growing up, we get an even better sense of his life and his morals and inquisitive nature. Then there’s Capone. The comic delivers an emotional rollercoaster for him and sets up an unexpected journey through the issue. This is an amazing comic about an amazing life that captures a bit of American history everyone should check out.
