The Story I Highly story I highly the story but it s not a favorite r anything remarkable I did love the Nazis American concept the Justice theme but the characters felt a little distant I like the Shadow but I don t care about the Shadow and don t see myself ever wanting to return to his worldCharacter Scale 3The art is the best I do like the noir crime style because it s very different It felt very retro and I think that matched up excellently with the Twilight Zone because it s a black and white show so it makes to have art reflective f the era I m just not totally in love with but the idea is brilliantArt Scale 375Overall I highly recommend checking this ne ut if you are a fan f The Twilight Zone because it s a great edition to this world and something i think fans like me will enjoyPlotastic Scale 45Cover Thoughts I love the Twilight Zone so I m digging this cover Thanks you Netgalley and Dynamite Entertainment for providing me with a copy f this novel in exchange for an honest review How many Shadows does a Shadow cast The Twilight Zone The ShadowThe Twilight Zone The Shadow by David Avallone is the graphic novel release f four comic books issues A long time fan Porter Rockwell: A Biography of both The Shadow and The Twilight Zone I was skeptical as to whetherr not a combination Satire of the two would be worth reading Putting it bluntly the ideaf this crossover might strike you as bat shi erm crazySo is this crazy graphic novel worth your time Absolutely Some background knowledge Deflower the Boss of The Shadow will help readers understand why this is such a cool idea As in theld comics The Shadow is a former WWI veteran pilot named Kent Allard known in Asia as the Hebrew magic amulets opium lord Yin Ko Onef his disguises is the millionaire playboy named Lamont Cranston The actual Cranston lets Allard use his identity as a cover In both the radio show and the movie with Alec Baldwin there s nly Lamont In the film he s portrayed as having lost his way succumbing to wanton violence and drug use Original Radio Broadcasts from the 1930s don t mind the copy f Preludes and Nocturnes below it In this particular graphic novel The Shadow s identities blend intentionally While I don t want to give away any spoilers just know that some confusion in the beginning is normal The Shadow is literally the protagonist s dark side Trained in the ways Being There of the Orient while in East Asia the protagonist learns tovercome his هذه بلادنا: الجواء own inner shadow andbtain the powers Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom of hypnosis andbfuscation The Shadow s alter egos combined with his mastery f the mind makes The Twilight Zone The Shadow a really creative idea It explores the concept f burying ne s identity to the point f an existential dilemma As the synopsis states Cranston exhibits signs Witness to the Martyrdom: John Taylor's Personal Account of the Last Days of the Prophet Joseph Smith of being The ShadowAllard remembering details from thethers life he shouldn t know There s a lot f mind switching going n but I ll let the story speak for itself The story is very reminiscent f the 1960 Twilight Zone episode A World f DifferenceThe verarching story in the background involves combating Nazis and the lengths to which The Shadow will go to combat evil The graphic novel features racist language and is strictly for adults Rest assured that the alter egopsychological elements are the story s primary strengthThe 3rd party Rod Serling narrative the dialogue itself and character portrayals are all Shadow Another cool aspect is that the writing is very reflexive AllardPreston notes. Re 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. ,
When I first heard about this crossover
I Didn T Think It Made Anydidn t think it made any but it really works Each issue begins with the Shadow waking up within another aspect f his character Whether it be a voice actor for *the radio show the author f the pulp *radio show the author f the pulp etc It s all very meta and I dig it There is the Shadow and then there is the Twilight Zone While I know and have seen parts f the tv series called the Twilight zone and even got the dd series n dvd bargain basement release it was a show that for me was mostly hit and miss The Shadow n the ther hand has remained a favorite f mine and these Dynamite releases are actually mostly good to very goodWe see the Shadow entering the twilight zone after interrupting a festive meeting Ten Thousand Goddam Cattle: A History of the American Cowboy in Song, Story and Verse of the representativesf the bermensch controlled Party and they are not amused We see in 4 parts the Shadow traveling through the various versions Set Theory, Logic and Their Limitations of himself even the Orson Welles radio version and as theriginal writer f the magazines himself Easy to follow if you like me know a bit about the Shadow lore perhaps a tad incomprehensible for the average reader who got excited about the Twilight zone moniker Dynamite comics really does its best to try to give the rights they have with the Shadow a full workout and this ne is riginal and enjoyable The Twilight Zone The Shadow by David Avallone with art by Dave Acosta had me a little worried at first I wasn t sure how these two properties could combine I needn t have worried We meet The Shadow as he is breaking up a group f American nazis His zeal for justice verrides the personal bystanders He feels they are guilty by association but Margo sees it differently since the bystanders are women and children This event sets The Shadow tumbling into The Twilight ZoneHe is suddenly Lamont Cranston his alter ego from the radio show #not Kent Allard He knows he is The Shadow but he can t convince those around him The # Kent Allard He knows he is The Shadow but he can t convince those around him The spinning continues as The Shadow moves further away from his true self and into his fictional portrayals Will this journey provide the lesson in justice he needs to learn and will he ever get back to his true selfI liked what was done here I think it works because the Shadow has had a iterations and lives in print radio and now comics The Twilight Zone element is a framing element f each issue like it should be The art is أساطير شعبية من قلب جزيرة العرب: الجزء الرابع okay I like Francesco Francavilla s work but the coversn these didn t do much for me All in all not a bad storyI received a review copy Stricken (Asphalt Cowboys, of this graphic novel from Dynamite Entertainment Diamond Book Distributors and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel Kent Allard s past took him down the pathf becoming The Shadow but now that path has led him into The Twilight ZoneConsider if you will a man wearing many masks cloaking himself in lies until no The Sporty Game one is suref the truth Such a man will uickly find himself trapped in the Twilight ZoneWhile I dig The Shadow I m a tremendous fan American Yakuza II of therigina The Twilight Zone The Shadow by David Avallone4 starsAnyone who knows me pretty well knows that I have a secret Inventions That Changed the World: Working Wonders obsession with the Twilight Zone I love to watch the marathons that playn TV Love Onboard: Cupid's Caribbean Cruise on the Fourthf July and if I get up early enough in the morning I watch a few Vertical Mind: Psychological Approaches for Optimal Rock Climbing of the timeless episodes Hell I even wentn the Tower Blood Love of Terror at Disney just because I love Rod Serling as a narrator and wanted to experience the ride for myself I m never gettingn it again Naturally when I saw this was available n Netgalley I hit that green button and I don t regret it Not nly did this feed my love for the Twilight Zone but it also introduced me to a pretty fascinating storyline A story that I think Rod Serling would have loved to have n his show because it captured the essence f what lurks within the Twilight Zone The story is seemingly simple enough a superherovigilante under the alias f the Shadow. Picture if you will in your wn world you're a fearsome crime fighter who stalks the night But you wake up today in another world whe. That the turning invisible power is a myth lazy writing n the part f The Shadow designers an interesting
comment since this was a real criticism after the radio show airedThe art style issince this was a real criticism after the radio show airedThe art style is terrific Dave Acosta s panel composition is well done and favors uick action seuences Blurb coloring is uniue and changes depending n which character is speaking I highly recommend this graphic novel to fans f The Shadow r #for readers looking for a creative new comic It s short and # readers looking for a creative new comic It s short and but really nails The Shadow perfectly while also managing to add its wn uniue flair 55 This book was received from the publisher for a fair and honest review Not bad I see this as a The Shadow book than The Twilight Zone though Being a big fan f both those series I felt it really helped to know The Shadow s history going in Shadow is working a case when Margo makes comments to him about how he s lost compassion and mercy and perhaps he should revisit Kent Allard After a car crash he enters the Twilight Zone and visits several versions f himself to teach him a lesson in humanity First he s Kent Allard the man he was born as and whose death he faked to become The Shadow aka Lamont Cranston There were scenes between Kent and Lamont which are both him and they were pretty cool Then things really go Twilight Zone as he successively finds himself an actor playing The Shadow n radio in a world where he is nly fictional then the writer Civil rights, tool of communist deception of the magazine stories and finally he meets Justice as he shrinks down to fitn the page f his story Pretty good I received an ARC f this comic from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I found this compilation to be very interesting The "whole concept would be fascinating for anyone really Imagine if Superman were pulled into the Twilight Zone what would happen "concept would be fascinating for anyone really Imagine if Superman were pulled into the Twilight Zone what would happen him How would his reality melt r alterThe artwork was uite noirish and well done Very much to the time period involved The story line was interesting particularly to someone like me who is familiar f course with The Twilight Zone but not so much with regard to The Shadow The idea An Eastern Orthodox Response to Evangelical Claims of where justice ends and mindless vigilantism is certainly very appropriate and worth considering 4 stars Well donen all levels I saw this title and thought really I used to love the twilight zone but the Shadow That was from the 1930s and I never understood it But you know what I was pleasantly surprised This version where The Shadow is thrown into the Twilight Zone we actually get to get inside his head The story works and is a uick enjoyable readHighly recommend it if you like though The Claiming of the Shrew old Radior Pulp version and especially if you didn t like The ShadowThanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review I thought this pretty well captured the slightly unearthly Summoned or supernatural ualityf the riginal Twilight Zone TV series This is a great idea A fictional character particularly a superhero type with an alter ego gets thrust into a scenario r in this case multiple scenarios that make him uestion his wn reality There are so many facets to be explored Maybe because I m not all that familiar with the character f The Shadow the intertwined stories all seemed to be edgy with a sense f mystery and strange unfamiliarity The characters embody that classic Twilight Zone feel the eerie sensation f not knowing what s happening IF it s happening while at the same time knowing it must be happening Good stuffThe art work is first rate and the stories are interesting I think the Twilight Zone aspect adds alot to the fun Dead Inside of theverall story Recommend to anyone with an interest in The Twilight Zone The Shadow r just interesting alternate reality type situations Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy and allowing me the pportunity to review this graphic novel even though I m so The Taste of Spruce Gum old fashioned I still consider it a comic book. Just a 22 yearld prodigy with an impressive voice and a lot f uestions an honored guest who has been invited into the Twilight Zo.
