Years in the making, this is the true story of writer Peter Calloway’s grandfather, Nathaniel Calloway, a Black man who graduated from medical school in the early 1930s.  Unable to get work at any Chicago hospital (because he was Black) and unable to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice (because he was Black), Nathaniel turned to the only other source of money in Prohibition-era Chicago: the Mafia, run by none other than Al Capone.

One of the most profoundly fascinating, startling and significant stories AfterShock has ever published, SHADOW DOCTOR features the artwork of Eisner Award-winner Georges Jeanty (The American Way, X-Tremists) and covers illustrated by the inimitable Mark Chiarello!

SHADOW DOCTOR #2

All Nathaniel wanted was a job as the qualified Doctor he is. A way to prove his worth to the world. He knew asking for money from the mob was a deal with the Devil, but what choice did he have? If he didn’t, it meant failure. And that would prove everyone else right.

So, he was willing to go back to the life he had left behind. He was willing to sign on the Devil’s dotted line. If, of course, Al Capone was willing to have him.

SHADOW DOCTOR #3

Nathaniel got what he wanted: he had the money – a gift from Al Capone – to start his medical practice. He was going to be a doctor.

Then the bomb went off. In the chaotic aftermath – and with a life on the line – Nathaniel was going to learn what taking money from the mafia truly meant.

SHADOW DOCTOR #4

The attempt on Capone’s life ignited a bloody battle between the Italians of Chicago. With war now raging, Nathaniel was realizing what he was: a tool. One to be used to patch up the gangsters he knew would kill again. He wants out, wants to undo what he’s done…until a knock on his door changes everything.
