The Shade #11 (Roughly in the direction of Dagenham Spoilers

Shade takes on the Celestial Pharoahs in an issue that is appropriately trippy. The combination of Frazier Irving’s art and the mental stuff that happens gave this issue a really weird, out there fell, and it worked very well. I found it interesting that Robinson basically used this issue as a meditation on immortality. Both Shade and the Pharoahs are immortal, and Shade has been given a first hand view at how that can lead someone down the wrong path. I also liked how they were defeated by a method borrowed from The Inquisitor in the last story, and how the Dreamtime played a part. At first it seemed like each 3-parter was separate, but Robinson was playing a very clever long game. Now all that’s left for the final issue is for us to finally, properly see the Shade’s origin. As a big Starman fan, I am hugely fucking excited about this, please don’t be a let-down, please. Oh yes, and it was also fun to see some of DC’s UK-based heroes like Knight and Squire. Was Beaumont a new character? It seemed like I should know who he is, but I have no idea.
