Library Journal Review

Two iconic characters are thrust together when a mysterious cabal known as the "Silent Seven" descends on New York. Delving into the mystical elements of both the Shadow's and Batman's pasts, writer Orlando (Wonder Woman) and artist Timpano (The Shadow; Transformers) craft a quintessential story that touches deep into their motivations and what makes each tick. The Shadow knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, but who knows what lurks in his heart? Batman has spent decades trying to heal the sorrow caused by losing his own family, but can he actually prevent it from happening again? Orlando asks these questions within the plot but also has the characters asking the same of themselves and each other. VERDICT A beautiful work of graphic noir fiction starring venerable characters of the pulp era supported by newer protagonists from the last decade, this book is both old and new and a delight for fans of either superhero.-Alger C.
