Shadowman Volume 3: Deadside blues.  What I liked – The origin of Darque. I really liked this story, and liked how it was tied to Shadowman. While I don’t like the overall incarnation of Darque, his origina story was a great read and one of the high points in this book. What I didn’t like – the art. Too dark and gloomy. I know it is the “deadside” and thus supposed to be dark and gloomy (too many greens, blues, and such), but it just looked confusing and muddied to me.  What I liked – Sandria appeared!  What I didn’t like – The story line seemed to wander a lot, with very little flow. It seem like the book is still trying to figure out what it is. And not sure what it was trying to do. While I have to believe there is an overall direction the book will take, I didn’t get that impression from reading this story.  Again, Shadowman is still disappointing, although I did like this arc overall a little more than the previous ones, mostly due to Shadowman 0. I had high hopes for the book, and continue to hope that Jack is able to move forward with good character development in the future. I am just worried it is taking too long and will lose my interest.

LOVED this book. A book of two parts - First part is the Sandria and Master Darque origin story, the second part is a series of mini one-off stories featuring Shadowman. The first two issues in the book, the #0 and #10 issues, are absolutely phenomenal. They're quite possibly the best comics that Valiant has published to date, across all of its comic lines. The art and writing in these two issues is absolutely amazing and will really impress *anyone* interested in comics, regardless of whether they've even heard of the comic or not. These two issues contain the backstory of Sandria and Master Darque, and also the origin of Shadowman's shadow Loa, so it's really, REALLY worthwhile reading for anyone interested in Shadowman. VERY high quality writing and art makes these a must-read for any comics fan. The second half of the book contains a number of short one-off stories featuring Shadowman, drawn and written by a variety of artists. Whilst they have no real effect on the overall plot of the Shadowman story as a whole, I enjoyed them as the really entertaining, face-value stories that they're meant to be. Overall, this book is *seriously* worth reading for the #0 and #10 stories alone, so the extra two comics-worth of shorter stories following these makes the book even better. Stunning book from Valiant, cannot WAIT for Shadowman Volume #4!
