The Shade #3 (Swan Dreaming Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Dec 17, 2011 10:39 am

It’s cool that The Shade is heading to Australia for this adventure, it’s an area of the world that has generally been under-served by superhero comics, and I like it when the Universe’s are expanded, with new characters like the Argonaut and Diablo Blacksmith, could we have a Justice League Of Australia? What makes this story work a lot better than it might have done is that James Robinson of course lived in Australia as a child, so his knowledge of the country is strong. The Aboriginal God that Shade fights isn’t something Robinson pulled out of his ass, it’s a real (well, not real, but you know what I mean, or maybe it is real, no offence to any Aborigines reading) thing. Cully Hamner’s art was great once again, and the revelation that Caldecott was a really well done. Next issue is a ‘Times Past’ story, and I always loved them in Starman, let’s hope Robinson has still got it when it comes to travelling back in time.

Good issue and I agree with you about all of the new characters Robinson created this issue. I especially liked the Mangar-Kunger-Kunja.

This is a really great book that apparently not enough people are reading. I read that Robinson has stated that, based on sales, this may never make the 12 issue mark. That would be a real shame.

Just another reminder of why we as comic fans can't have nice things...because when we actually get them, people don't buy them.

I'm buying this and enjoying this. But yeah.. I guess Robinson's name is all tainted now thanks to Cry for Justice.

He's never been a good writer, except for The Golden Age.

The comic shop near me closed, so I didn't get this. :-( I will have to see if Fantom Comics is still open at Union Station. I know they got booted from their old space, but I'd heard they relocated within Union Station, at least for the time being. Otherwise, I may have to find it as a back issue somewhere.

Starman, the single greatest superhero comic of at least the last two decades, says you are out yo Got-damned mind.
