I'm sure you've heard of Ain't it Cool News, right? The Harry Knowles website that gives brutally honest reviews of the latest movies and has a knack for unearthing the most closely guarded studio secrets? Of course you have.

Well, unless you visit the AiCN website regularly, what you may not have realised is that they also review other things, like DVDs and comics. And more recently, it seems, even webcomics. And now Shades has joined the list of DD comics to join the AiCN Club!

Yes, Shades now has a review by Ain't it Cool News and - deep breath - it's a pretty positive review, too!

Here are a couple of extracts:
so far, the story is pretty damn good. Writer Burner nails some great character driven moments as an aged tailor and his grandson go on a quest to inform a team of superheroes from the past about an impending danger. Burner asks the question: what makes a hero? A colorful costume or a person's deeds?
Yeah, okay - so he spelt my name wrong, but it's still pretty cool! And there's more …

The art is pretty damn fine too with dynamic poses and effective action sequences. The artist also knows how to capture the more quiet scenes Many artists don't really give it their all in the scenes in between the big battles. Chattoraj isn't one of those artists. He seems to give it his all in every panel.
Okay, so you guys already knew Harsho's work was pretty special, but now you can tell everyone that AiCN agrees with you!

You can read the whole review here!

Took me four months to say so, but it's pretty obvious why he spelt your name wrong…

…because you're burning. In a good way.
