DON’T FEAR YOUR DEMONS…FIGHT THEM!

Orphaned as a child and raised on the margins of society, Jack Boniface never knew his place in the world. Until he discovered it waiting for him… in a darkness far older than the reign of men…

Unbeknownst to him, Jack was fated to become the next in a long lineage of Shadowmen – mortals bound to loas, violent voodoo spirits of immense power – that could safeguard our world against incursions from realms beyond.

For years, Jack struggled to control his loa’s murderous urges – a battle he eventually lost.

But now, after years of self-imposed exile, the man once known as Shadowman is returning home to sharpen the weapon within…and unleash a reckoning on the evils of our world that will soon send shockwaves through heaven and hell alike…

Shadowman storms his way to the forefront of the Valiant Universe – more powerful, more terrifying, and more relentless than ever before – in an adrenaline-fueled ongoing series from superstar writer Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One, The Losers) and high-octane artist Stephen Segovia (Action Comics)!

Review: Blake and Mortimer Volume 1: The Yellow M

If you have read a newspaper, or an article, or watched the news, somewhere along the line, you may have heard the name “Banksy.” The mysterious person is known for their artwork exhibited around the world. Their pieces are lauded, and their appearances are more “slight of hand,” making the proximity to the art a unique experience. This is not the first time the world has been fascinated with someone anonymous.

Jack The Ripper and the Zodiac Killer are two other examples and multi-media has provided audiences the ability to follow the clues of those attempting to unmask these individuals. Its created an industry on its own it seems. Media has helped the world became even more fascinated with mysterious figures and the world seems to always gravitate to their public actions, no matter how disgusting they may be.

I always wondered how someone like Banksy would do if he alerted the police before he committed one of his masterpieces? This is what Edgar Jacobs looks to uncover in the first volume of Blake and Mortimer Volume 1: The Yellow M.

We are taken to London, where the royal guard go about their rounds, when they hear a laughter off in the distance, it is the Yellow Mark, and he has the stolen the royal Crown. This is where we meet the retired police captain, Francis Blake and his genius partner, Professor Philip Mortimer, who catches the ire of the Yellow Mark as he taunts the duo as he taunts the establishment. This doesn’t deter the two from stopping this mysterious figure from hurting anyone, each crime, comes with even more dire consequences each time. Professor Mortimer eventually finds out exactly who is the man behind the Yellow Mark, but gets imprisoned by the person in question.  By book’s end, Blake has come to the rescue of his partner as the end the criminal enterprise of the Yellow Mark.

Overall, a fun graphic novel, that at first reminds of Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal in Sherlock, but both characters are forces of nature. The story by Jacobs is layered, intense, and action packed. Altogether, a story that is more contemporary than one might believe at first glance.
