Cliff Drane,

	I can recommend the three SHADOW comics. The artwork is the best at
representing the feel of the book; better than any of the book covers I
have seen. And the Maitz covers are my favorite, as covers. These comics do
more than grab the eye of the bookstore browser trying to judge by the
cover. They have an odd quality that I found appropriate to Severian's
tale. If I am not mistaken, Gene Wolfe did the adaptation. Of course the
text is abridged. But the essentials to the story are still there. You will
be disappointed however, disappointed that there are only three issues and
they only take you part way into SHADOW. I would have liked to see the
completed series. Well worth twice the price just to see some of the scenes
