The Shadow Cabinet first appeared essentially simultaneously in three comics which were published in the same month: Shadow Cabinet #0, Static #8, and Hardware #11. All of these had a cover date of January 1994. Various sources site each of these 3 different comics as the "first appearance" of the Shadow Cabinet.

A note about this issue (http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Hardware_Vol_1_11) points out that this issue (Hardware #11) features the actual first appearance of the Shadow Cabinet, but the group is largely behind the scenes, and the Shadow Cabinet doesn't fully appear until the story that this issue's storyline concludes in: Shadow Cabinet #0.
