Very average series of comics - but ok for a quick read to pass the time. The first flash back tales are quite interesting, but the filler stories towards the back of the collection are below average and boring. I expected a lot more from this Shadowman series and have been pretty disappointed.

This Shadowman series has been a condradiction so far. I like the setting: Modern day New Orleans dealing with the Voodo and scene and other magical and supernatural happenings. I love the idea of the Shadoman Loa possessing a new host in the family line and continuing it's quest for... well, we don't know what it want's exactly yet. And the origin following a 20ish year old guy who has just fallen headfirst into this weird world to find that he's the next to join the family business... whether he wants to or not.

But the story in the books before this one never focused enough on Jack to make me care enough about him as a character. This has been the downfall of the series so far. And this book shows just how good the story could be with two of the best individual issues that the new Valiant comics has put out! It just happens that those 2 best issues happen to be a part of the overall weakest of the series Valiant is putting out up to now.

Issue #0 and #10 showcase the origins of Master Darque and his sister Sandria followed by the origin of the Shadowman loa itself as a reaction to the battle between Niko and Sandria Darque. These two issues are superb and the art by De La Torre is perfect for the tone of these books! The other issues collected in this book were okay, but they were really filler during the time that Valiant was changing up the creative team to try and inject some changes (and hopefully improvements) to the continuing series. I look forward to the books after this one to see how they've improved.

This tpb includes one of the best issues VEI has produced to date.Shadowman #0 it tells the story of the Most evil villain in my opinion in the VEI universe to date.Master Darque he was born in 1812 along with his sister Sandria.To a very evil father who was a sorcerer.Their mother died giving birth.

There father taught them "the art" magic.They learned why the plantation that their father own thrived magic.The kids learned the ways of magic.From the start it was apparent that darque was pure evil he killed his sisters pet rabbit when his sister was not paying attention to him.He brought it back to life as a mockery.Darques father was furious explain that you couldn't bring the dead back or you get a mockery dead is dead.

Now after the father explained the true reason for the kids to get him to a magical realm called lyceum a place where all secrets are told..a place where only they could get him there.

It tells of the true evil that is the father and a vision of lyceum where once mastering the art you could be beyond powerful.

The father put enchanted tattoos on darque and sandria sacrificing them to try to get power to send him to lyceum..once the twins had power they made it snow outside in the summer and proved even nature bended to their will.What will become of Darque and Sandria and their father.it also tells the story of the first shadowman and why he was created it is worth buying for the Shadowman #0 alone not to mention the rest.

LOVED this book.

A book of two parts - First part is the Sandria and Master Darque origin story, the second part is a series of mini one-off stories featuring Shadowman.

The first two issues in the book, the #0 and #10 issues, are absolutely phenomenal. They're quite possibly the best comics that Valiant has published to date, across all of its comic lines. The art and writing in these two issues is absolutely amazing and will really impress *anyone* interested in comics, regardless of whether they've even heard of the comic or not. These two issues contain the backstory of Sandria and Master Darque, and also the origin of Shadowman's shadow Loa, so it's really, REALLY worthwhile reading for anyone interested in Shadowman. VERY high quality writing and art makes these a must-read for any comics fan.

The second half of the book contains a number of short one-off stories featuring Shadowman, drawn and written by a variety of artists. Whilst they have no real effect on the overall plot of the Shadowman story as a whole, I enjoyed them as the really entertaining, face-value stories that they're meant to be.

Overall, this book is *seriously* worth reading for the #0 and #10 stories alone, so the extra two comics-worth of shorter stories following these makes the book even better.

Stunning book from Valiant, cannot WAIT for Shadowman Volume #4!

Deadside Blues collects issues #0, and #10-12 of Valiant's Shadowman series. This review is a bit challenging and will have to be in two parts.

First, issues #0 is a fantastic issue written by Justin Jordan with hauntingly, beautiful art by Roberto De La Torre and Mico Suayan with coloring by David Baron. This issue tells the origin of Master Darque as told from his twin sister, Sandria's point of view. Shadowman #10, picks up story threads laid out in the zero issue and builds on that mythology, we learn of the Shadowman loa and how closely intertwined that lineage is with Master Darque. These two issues are some of the best work Valiant has produced, not just in the Shadowman series, but within the universe as a whole and I cannot recommend them high enough.

Second, issue #11 is a fill-in Halloween special issue by Jim Zub and issue #12 is composed of short stories. Coming right after issue #10 which builds on the mythology so well, this wasn't the direction or the stories I was looking for. The Halloween special felt like filler and this humorous tale did not fit into what I am looking for with Shadowman. I enjoyed the short stories for what they are, but I'm waiting on the new creative team with issue #13 to get the Shadowman series back on track.

Issue #0 & 10 get a full 5 stars, issue #11 gets 2 stars from me, while issue #12 earns 3 stars, combining them for an overall score of 3.75 stars and I'll round up due to the strength of the 5 star issues.
