I didn't like The Shadow, I thought too many things in it were corny/hokey (picking Khan as the villain didn't help). I prefer the Shadow to be very dark tonally (like the new comic book), whereas with the Phantom I thought they got the right tonality for the character.

Dick Tracy is right in the middle--it's definitely a good adaptation, but I just didn't care very much about the character.
Of the movies, Dick Tracy is better, IMO. Speaking strictly about the characters, The Phantom is tops for me.
