Question The Shade issue #2 Preview & Discussion

PREVIEW FROM THE SOURCE


Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

By Alex Nagorski

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read THE SHADE #1, do not continue reading this preview or look at the preview pages after the jump.

Seriously.

Last month, THE SHADE #1 ended with a major cliff hanger and MTV GEEK named the comic as their #1 comic book for the month of October.

In tomorrow’s issue #2, we immediately learn that Deathstroke is not the only one thirsty for Shade’s blood. In order to discover who else is after him (and why!), Shade must embark on a globe-trotting adventure. The first stop? Hamburg, Germany, where the private investigator Von Hammer seems to have the first piece of the puzzle. But can Shade find the answers he’s looking for before the vicious beast Bete-Noire gets to Von Hammer?

THE SHADE #2 comes from the fan-favorite creative team of James Robinson and Cully Hamner.

That first page...wow.

That is what I mean when I say "good narration."

Wow. Just amazing from start to finish. The best comic of the month, even in a great month like this.

Bravo, James and Cully!

Excellent issue. Could have done without the Zero 7 reference but otherwise this is vintage James Robinson.

Another wonderful issue.

Still no reference to the Starman museum... I wonder if that's been dropped altogether due to the obvious questions it would raise.
