Review: Dead Day

“Dead Day” is a holiday from sunset to sunrise the deceased rise from the grave. This is the story of a family as they prepare for the annual holiday.

Dead Day collects the five issues of the series, a fantastic read we highly recommend.

Review: Shadow Doctor #2

Shadow Doctor #2

The debut of Shadow Doctor was fantastic. The series is a true-life story about Nathaniel Calloway as he attempts to create a life as a doctor in Chicago. Due to racism, Nathaniel must go to an old friend of his for help to start his dream, Al Capone. Shadow Doctor #2 is a fascinating second issue that makes Al Capone a slightly sympathetic person.

Written by Nathaniel’s grandson Peter Calloway, Shadow Doctor #2 is a fantastic second issue that dives further into Nathaniel’s past and his difficult journey. What Peter does is really interesting though, he takes us through Capone’s thought process as to whether he’ll help Nathaniel and we learn a bit about his thoughts on race during the time. Along with a moment with a women he was interested in and Capone’s mother, Peter paints a very different picture of Capone than I expected. There’s a lot to think about as far as Nathaniel and Capone’s journey through life. Shadow Doctor #2 delivers a solid dose of reality of the time.

Georges Jeanty‘s art is fantastic, much like the debut issue. With Juancho! on color and Charles Pritchett on lettering, the art is a grounded style that fits the comic based on history. I’m not an expert on the design of the time but know what Capone looks like. The art does a solid job of depicting Capone so I’d expect the clothing, cars, other things of the time are pretty on target as well. It feels like the period to me as a reader and in the end that’s what really matters. Things look authentic which helps me get even more focused on the story.

And it’s a really interesting story. What happens in Shadow Doctor #2 is unexpected with ups and downs and some really fascinating twists. The fact that this true has sucked me in even more. I have to know what happens next for Nathaniel and where the story goes. For those that enjoy mob and crime stories, this is a must. For those that like history, this is a must. And for those that enjoy history about race in America, this absolutely is a must. Shadow Doctor #2 is one of the most original comics on the shelf and beyond engaging.

Cover: Andy Clarke w/ Jose Villarrubia
$3.99 / 32 pages / Color / On Sale 09.16.20

Jeremy attempts to track down the monster responsible for his murder as well as uncover the terrifying secret behind it. Brandon finds himself amongst the dead and at the heart of the Revivalists’ most sacred ritual.  

From writer Ryan Parrott (OBERON, VOLITION, Power Rangers) and artist Evgeniy Bornyakov (DESCENDENT, YOU ARE OBSOLETE) comes an unnerving tale of existential horror with grave consequences.

Shadow Doctor Tells the True Story of a Black Mob Doctor in the 1930s

SHADOW DOCTOR #1

Writer: Peter Calloway
Artist: Georges Jeanty
Color Artist: Juancho!
Letterer: Charles Pritchett
Cover artist: Mark Chiarello
$4.99 / 32 pages / Color / On sale February 2021

This is the true story of Peter Calloway’s grandfather, Nathaniel Calloway. A Black man, he graduated from medical school in the early 1930’s.  Unable to get work at any Chicago hospitals (because he was Black), and unable to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice (because he was Black), he turned to another source of money in Prohibition-era Chicago: the Mafia, run by none other than Al Capone.
