Hello Fellow Readers,

I feel like it's been a while since I've read a comic or graphic novel but I was in the mood so I decided to Shadecraft would be the perfect to reintroduce myself to the genre. In this we meet Zadie a moody teenager whose brother is in a coma after a car accident. Zadie is convinced that the shadows are out to get her, but we soon find out it’s not some sinister being sending shadows after Zadie but Shadecraft being wielded by Zadie herself. The idea behind Shadecraft is pretty interesting and the power description is very cool and I would think very useful. 

The story itself is just okay, I was interested at first but then I found myself just shaking my head at some parts thinking would this actually happen? I also felt like this first arc was a bit rushed, especially the ending. Zadie is a pretty good character and so is her brother but other than that no one else was that interesting. I am not sure I would continue reading the next one but volume one does set it up to where I am a little interesting in how it will go.

Overall, an okay graphic novel that just didn’t capture my attention but may capture yours.
