Subj: The Shadow, Year One

So a couple years back Dynamite released a lot of pulp era comics and I bought Garth Ennis' Shadow, The Fires of Creation, and another one, Masks. And I have to say I was underwhelmed. I was not a fan of either so I decided not to buy any more of this stuff. So when I heard Shadow, Year One was coming out I dismissed it out of hand.

Last week my friend loaned me his Year One trade.

I loved it.

Written by Matt Wagner, Year One tells the story of why The Shadow originally came to New York, how he first met Margo Lane, whom his first super villainous opponent was. I think Matt nailed the character in a way Ennis didn't to me. If you are a fan of The Shadow, pick up this trade, I think you'll enjoy it.
