The Shadow #18

The Shadow #18The Shadow‘s battle of wills with The Light comes to a close high above the city on rooftops and the top of the bridge as Lamont Cranston fights the crazed nun believing she is doing God’s work killing the sinful and purifying the world of the evil they represent.

Although I think this story arc is at least one issue too long, I can’t argue with the fact that it’s gotten stronger as it has gone on. The conclusion, with the two vigilantes both of whom equally believe their version of justice is righteous and the other’s is tainted, offers a physical battle as well as a battle of words and a debate on each of the vigilante’s actions set to some great panels by artist Giovanni Timpano.

The issue comes to a close with The Shadow victorious, but the inability of the police to discover a body in the river suggests we may not have seen the last of The Light nor her mission. Worth a look.
