The Shadow Now by David Liss

The Shadow Now - Colton Worley, Tim Bradstreet, David Liss

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Shadow has returned from the east after rejuvenation and now poses as his grandson, Lamont Cranston. His old adversary, Shiwan Kahn, escapes from prison and soon starts to assert himself amongst the criminal families. The Shadow begins a campaign to bring Khan to justice and back behind bars.

I liked the premise of the story but the execution didn't do anything for me. The characters seem very flat especially the Shadow whom I didn't connect with at all and didn't really care if he survived or not. Visually, lots of the panels are quite eye catching but the consistency is not good with detail being very hit or miss, especially towards the end. Personally it's not a style that worked for me but others may enjoy it.
