    I really WANT to like Shadowman. It was one of my favorite title

    I really WANT to like Shadowman. It was one of my favorite title in VH1 (the original Valiant Universe). I have tried reading them, re-reading them, taking a break, and reading them again.

    I just can't do it.

    It may be because I am still expecting something more similar to the VH1 Shadowman, which the new Shadowman is not like at all. In this series arc, we see more of Darque (but still don't get some good back story about him - that's for next time with Shadowman 0), but the story line still seems muddled and confusing. I had a difficult time following it, although I really did like some of the art on these issues. The artist kept switching, which really took me out of the storyline, and there were obvious differences between the different issues.

    I was very excited to see Doctor Mirage (who is now appearing in her own book, which I haven't read yet). Dr. Mirage was also a favorite of mine, and I am very excited to see what they do with her. The ending seemed a little sudden, but maybe that means there is just more to come.

    If you like supernatural comics, you may enjoy Shadowman. I was iffy about them previously, and still am not quite sold on the new series. With luck, (and Darque gone for now) maybe they can focus on the character in the "real world", and keep one artist on for a long period of time.

    Fantastic book that wraps up the first major arc of Valiant's Shadowman comic!

    Full steam ahead for this one as Shadowman goes head to head with Master Darque to save *everybody's* soul, fighting the Lord of the Dead, zombie hoards and evil soul-machines along the way!

    The pacing in this book is good, as slower, character-building and plot moving sections are offset by higher-paced action sections and of course the end of the book keeps its foot to the boards throughout the climax, making for a varied and entertaining book.

    The characters are given more depth in this book than the previous ones, and some motives behind the characters' actions are revealed and explored here, some in more depth than others, but all of them: interesting. This is good as the characters haven't been given as much depth as perhaps one would expect by this point in time, so it's rewarding to start getting to know these characters a bit better as they go about living through their circumstances as best they can.

    There's an enjoyable (slightly) darker tone in the art to this book than the previous one too, and given the plot elements mostly dealing with the dead, it's an apt and enjoyable feature which I think lends itself well to the series as a whole.

    Overall, a very enjoyable and exciting end to this first part of the Shadowman story that feels like a satisfying conclusion to the previous books, whilst still raising more than a few questions of its own in the mind of the pensive reader.

    Definitely recommended - Very much looking forward to more Shadowman from Valiant in the future.
