Review: The Shadow Glass #2


Rosalind’s search for the truth about her past brings her face to face with her father at the home of her tutor, where the two men are set to perform a conjuration to loose the powers of a powerful object that pulls Rosalind in as well.

In The Shadow Glass #2, written by Aly Fell, things get complicated as Rosalind’s father returns, except he doesn’t seem to remember her. Since they haven’t seen each other this actually makes sense and is understandable, yet his repeating the word “familiar,” is suspicious. This issue also reveals the violent origins of the Shadow Glass. As the issue ends, the Shadow Glass is used. Calling forth something that looks oddly familiar.

The art by Fell (who pulls double duty) is superb. I will admit the last page, where the summoning happens is filled with a sense of supernatural color. I’m not going to reveal what they summon, but you may end up doing a double take, or two.
