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.
