I absolutely love this book series with all of its quirkiness.

For all that I often - and deservedly - slag off DC's New 52, let's not forget that they were producing plenty of terrible comics before the reboot. This team of mystical heroes are written so as to be largely indistinguishable from any other third-string superhumans, and even the asset of Detective Chimp (a chimp in a deerstalker!) is largely wasted by mainly using artists who can't draw chimps.

Shadowpact: Darkness and Light is written by two of my favorite comic book writers, Bill Willingham, who wrote Fables and companion works to Sandman and Matthew Sturges, who wrote House of Mystery, also one of my favorites. Darkness and Light, however, does not live up to their best work.

Admittedly, this is my first introduction to the Shadowpact, a superhero team in which each member has magic powers. Nightmaster, the leader, does not exhibit much personality in this volume, mostly because he s

That's a bit better. After last volume felt floating and inconsequential, this third volume of Shadowpact gets back on track and gives us some solid storylines featuring the proper debut of Doctor Gotham as he attacks the team, as well as some more subplots bubbling away like Blue Devil's soul and both Zauriel and the Warlock's Daughter joining the team. Matthew Sturges pens the second story in the volume which brings some more character to those who have been lacking, like Enchantress, and sets ...more
Liking this series more as it goes on. Solid characterization and mystical plots make me a very happy reader. The one thing that keeps me from loving it is the shifting panel of artists hired to illustrate the book. Some of the artwork is the cartoonish style that really works, while other issues feature illustrations that are trying to be too realistic or expressionistic. Overall, still a quality read but DC needs to work on the rotating artist problem, since it still exists years after this wa ...more
Though there are some nice moments (Blue Devil's lawyer, for example), one of the things that makes Bill Willingham's stories (Shadowpact, Fables, Jack of Tales) enjoyable is their quirky sense of whimsy... and whimsy is in short supply this time around. Add to that some murky & less successful artwork and, well, I'm hoping the next installment improves or I'll probably give up on the series.
Ok, nothing spectacular. Amusing bits with a lawyer trying to sue hell, though.
Good show. But only advanced storylines rather than concluding them.
