The Shadow #17

With The Light still on the loose, The Shadow and Margo Lane work to fit together the various pieces of the puzzle in order to uncover the deadly vigilante's identity before she kills again.

Although I think The Light storyline should have been wrapped-up here rather than being drawn-out for one more issue, I did enjoy the series spending an entire issue showcasing the deductive skills and process of both The Shadow and Margo Lane including investigating the weapon left by the killer, the impossible hospital murder, and uncovering her connection to the first victim.

By the end of the issue our hero will know the identity of The Light setting up the arc's final issue next month. From what we've seen so far the pair seem evenly matched in both skill, determination, and a belief that their form of brutal justice is for the greater good. Given this it may well be that only one will survive next month's likely deadly final encounter. My money's on the guy in the hat. Worth a look.
