Review: Shadowman #2

Shadowman #2

The hellscape known as the Deadside has pried open a doorway to Earth in Enoch, Arizona in Shadowman #2! And our only chance at survival against the awakening desert beasts is Shadowman.

It’s often the smaller details that really impress me about a comic, things standing out that I generally wouldn’t pay attention to. In this case, that’s the recap page. Now, I’m always in favor of a recap page partly because I’m old and like a reminder, but also because it serves as an introduction to the story for new readers. Shadowman #2‘s recap page is in the form of Baron Samedi regaling us about the previous issue, and I found it funnier than it probably should be.

Shadowman #2 continues the pattern set in the first issue of having a complete story within the comic, minus a lingering hint of something else that hovers in the background. If I was a poetic person, I’d find a way to leave you with the idea that there was a hint of the ethereal evil laying just out of reach, but I’m not (no matter how much I try to be), so instead I’ll just flat out say it.

Written by Cullen Bunn, with art by the incredible Jon Davis-Hunt and colours by Jordie Bellair, this issue has Shadowman stepping away from New Orleans into the Arizona desert to confront a bloody disgusting looking demon. It’s about as horrifying as my cat is adorable (an unusual statement, yes, but he’s currently sat next to me with a paw on my hand trying to get scritches). I can’t pinpoint what it is about this issue, but it’s an absolute beast. Bunn’s story about a demon gathering followers for his nefarious scheme, Shadowman’s uneasy relationship with Baron Samedi… Davis-Hunt and Bellaire are spectacular in the book as the scene shifts from our world to the Deadside and back frequently, often from one panel to the next, and the pair show you the shift in a way that you can’t mistake.

Davis-Hunt’s artwork is brilliant on its own, but his heavy inks are given spectacular life by Jordie Bellaire‘s use of colour, who contributes an underrated and unstated character to the pages. But it’s Bunn’s writing that really adds the cherry to an already fantastic comic. I never expected Shadowman to feature in one of my most anticipated series this year, but I am so happy to have been proven wrong.

As a series, Shadowman is easily one of the best things Valiant has put out in a long time, and for my money is the best thing on the racks right now.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #3

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Black Friday #2 (Scout Comics/Black Caravan) – Something is trying to come up through the floor. An evil has festered due to the violence of previous Black Fridays and the staff of Star-Mart will need to survive what’s coming. Fantastic horror and a must for fans of the genre.

Black Widow #7 (Marvel) – The series has been amazing so far with a great mix of everything. The writing is top-notch, the action entertaining, and the art is amazing. One of Marvel’s best series out now.

The Blue Flame #1 (Vault Comics) – A new take on the superhero genre. The Blue Flame must prove humanity is worth saving before a universal trial but the hero must save himself first.

Made in Korea #1 (Image Comics) – A series that explores the concept of artificial intelligence. Check out our glowing review.

Mister Miracle: The Source of Freedom #1 (DC Comics) – Spinning out of Future State, this is the story of how Shilo Norman became Mister Miracle.

The Other History of the DC Universe #4 (DC Comics) – John Ridley turns his exploration into the DC Universe towards Renee Montoya.

Redshift #1 (Scout Comics) – The Ministry of Exploration pins mankind’s last hope on an astronaut who’s scared of space. It’s a tale of survival for all.

Reptil #1 (Marvel) – Not a character we expected to get the spotlight but we’re intrigued to see what’s done here.

Robin #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was a lot of fun. There was a solid mix of humor and action and the second issue is just as fun. So much added to Damian as far as depth of the character already.

Shadow Doctor #4 (AfterShock) – The amazing true story about a Black doctor in the 1930s who had to turn to his friend Al Capone to help fund his business.

Shadowman #2 (Valiant Entertainment) – The first issue was fantastic and a great reintroduction to the character. The debut got universal praise from our team and we’re all excited to see where the series goes from there.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #3 (IDW Publishing) – We’ve been eagerly waiting for the issue as the series has been delivering entertainment with each release. It’s a familiar grizzled take but the setting and story itself really stands out with really unique elements.
