The Shade’s Barcelona journey comes to a satisfying conclusion. The revelation that the Inquisitor is now working for Hell was a good one, and sets up a nice dichotomy for Barcelona’s hero and villain. The hero is a vampire who is a devout Catholic, the villain is a priest fighting for Hell, very cool. I’m not sure quite why Shade was able to unleash such power at the end and why he was thinking about his wife so much, but it was a great moment, wonderfully drawn by Javier Pulido, who is just brilliant. I’m guessing this stuff with Shade’s wife and that big red demon will be explained in the next issue, which is a Times Past story set in 1901. I wonder what’s the deal with that villain at the end? He looked Egyptian, something to do with the British Museum perhaps?
