It’s the end of April and we’re rounding up four first issues from the month gone by!
“This issue had everything I love about Shadow Service, emotion, plot twists, demons, humour and some drama. Honestly this is an excellent return for Shadow Service after its break. I very much enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing how that cliff hanger at the end turns out. Plus it had a Randall and Hopkirk reference so that alone makes it A+ for me.”
Writer: Tres DeanArtist: Sebastián PírizColourist: Dee CunniffeLetterers: Jim CampbellPublisher: Vault We Ride Titans #2 ended with the appearance of a mysterious mech in New Hyperion. This issue we get some of that sweet giant mech battling action you’ve probably been waiting for.

“I was surprised when I picked up this second issue, but I’m glad I did, and I’ll definitely be back for more next month.”
“I’m still not entirely sure where the story is heading, but I’m looking forward to finding out.”
It’s our first monthly round-up of 2022!
“The parallels between the two narratives are where the book really shines, and they allow for the creative team to dig into so many different themes at the same time. It’s just such a well structured story. Each issue brings us closer to answers about what’s really going on: is Sam daydreaming about saving the universe, or is he really in two places at once?”
Here’s our best of 2021 list!
“an immediately distinct visual of worn out, post-apocalyptic neon, which honestly I can’t get enough of.”
“A pretty original monster story which reflects on the ethereal monster within each of us”
“As before this is very well drawn with vibrant colours and detail throughout, resisting the temptation to just make everything red despite the body count. But it’s the storytelling that surprised me the most. It would be easy to make this another bog-standard horror comic, but there’s depth here, we’re getting character development and emotional nuance, which is much appreciated.”
“I was surprised how well everything tied together in this issue and it immediately made me want to read through the issues in this arc again”
“If you like a touch of horror with your magic I would highly recommend Shadow Service.”
“We get some more excellent art here, Yonna full of sadness and fury while everyone is stylishly chopping up and shooting vampires.”
“Monsters, parasitic slugs, skeletons jumping out of bodies, it’s just a wonderfully ridiculous read.”
“This has all the ingredients to be a bit special. One to watch.”
