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.
