    Deadman cosplayer Master Darque wants to (sigh) take over the world – Shadowman to the rescue!Shadowman, Volume 2: Darque Reckoning loses the momentum set by the really good first book, instead delivering a vague and uninteresting story.It doesn’t help that Shadowman himself is a pretty boring main character. He’s interesting visually but Jack Boniface doesn’t have much of a personality and what little he learns about his character’s legacy in this book ain’t gripping. Darque comes a [...]

    Shadowman's first big story arc concludes in the five issues collected here as Jack tries to deal with Master Darque, now trapped in the Deadside and literally one dimension away from ruling the planet. As he warps the Deadside to his own whim, Jack has to deal with Baron Samedi, the voodoo lord of the dead who possesses a serial killer and decides to murder his way across New Orleans too.There's so much that works well in this volume; the stakes are high, there are a lot of moving parts, and it [...]

    Great artwork! Great story! Ending is similar to Ghost.Except for Jack Boniface, who looks more Latino in this volume . . .

    Sometimes it's nice to read a comic book where the main character struggles. Jack has a lot getting thrown at him and it's easy to write him off because he has a hard time dealing with it. I felt there was a decent amount of growth for the character considering he just recently learned about these powers that he has and the seemingly involved history that comes with them. One of the things that struck me about this book is how Jack tries to go back to living a normal life and the consequences th [...]

    Of all the Valiant titles, specifically those in Act 1. Shadowman seems to be the least recommended or talked about but It's continued to be one of my favorite from the Valiant relaunch.

    Volume One was a 3 and this is a 4. And a solid 4, at that.Why? Character development and world building. I didn't care much for the seemingly pointless cameo from Dr. Mirage (I hope that was her name), but based on the adds in the back on the volume she had a book out and probably wanted some cross-exposure. Other than that, everyone got to grow a little bit. Not a lot. Just enough. And this series isn't saturated with meaningless characters. There isn't a roster of 10 sitting around waiting to [...]

    The extra stars are for Jack and Doctor Mirage, but honestly, this volume was pretty dull. Jack/Shadowman seems to be figuring his role as a hero of sorts, but gets thrown around with questionable characters. Dox and Alyssa were pretty frustrating this time around and seem to make impulsive decisions while proceeding to blame others. However, perhaps with its conclusiom, Alyssa can actually step up her game and I don't know, actually do something besides criticizing Jack. I would definitely like [...]

    Shadowman is my least favorite of the Valiant books because I'm not into the whole messing with God's domain" kind of story, especially when the villain is overcome without the explicit help of God Himself. Not that I would like to see what the creators would do with any attempt at writing God in as a character.

    I generally like Valiant books, but I was a little confused about the ending of this one. A lot of stuff seemed to happen at once without much of an explanation.

    The first volume in this series didn't really grab me and the second one even less so. Not necessarily bad but just not really my thing.

    The new Valiant, or we should just say Valiant, has been on a roll of late releasing all of their properties slowly but surely with top writers and artists. Included among that list is Shadowman written by Justin Jordan and drawn by Patrick Zircher. They have taken the property and kept what worked best and added their own elements to make it a book filled with magic, action and intrigue.Volume 2 finds Jack Boniface tired of the fight he has barely began. And when reality comes crashing down, he [...]

    Reprints Shadowman (3) #5-9 (March 2013-August 2013). Shadowman’s ancient enemy Darque is back and taken control of the Deadside. Forced to team with Baron Samedi, Shadowman must head to the Deadside to fight Darque in a final battle that will not only determine the fate of the world but the life of Jack Boniface’s friend and ally Dox who is Darque’s prisoner.Written by Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher, Shadowman 2: Darque Reckoning continues the Valiant Comics relaunch of the ’90s char [...]

    Something I like about Jordan's writing is the use of the term 'the Shadowman'. I don't know why, but something about the setting and storyline make Jack Boniface feel more like one guy with one responsibility, a Shadowman rather than a Man, as opposed to some grandiose superhero. Contrast this with DC comics and 'the Batman' or 'the Green Arrow' and how those titles feel like awe-inspiring mantles; the Shadowman is just one dude in a sprawling saga of good and evil. This volume spends way more [...]

    I was better engaged by this volume than the first. With the stage set, we're allowed deeper into the world of Shadowman, and his mysterious nemesis, Mr. Darque. The Deadside as a setting becomes vastly more interesting, and we are introduced to a handful of new characters, including Baron Semedi, his acolyte Saturday and the re-imagining of the classic Valiant character, Dr. Mirage. Jordan seems to have found his comfort zone with the book, with even pacing, and well constructed dialogue that h [...]

    This volume ups the conflict from the first volume, as the two antagonists and Shadowman form a shaky conflict triangle with the stakes being ownership of Deadside and the living realm itself. Aside from perhaps not explaining Deadside well enough, the conflict is well formed and plays out strongly, building to a massive climax, with unexpected betrayals and significant repercussions. My biggest complaint is that it seems like the majority of the conflict takes place between the panels - we see [...]

    Slightly better, because the characters are established, but still at the level of good-but-not-great. The trickster monkey character is a clever addition, and the comic's version of Baron Samedi is nice, but it's still annoying that the good guys never taught the new Shadowman things necessary to keep him and the world alive, so he's having to make things up as he goes along. That would be okay, except, in this case the entire fripping world is at stake, so a set of instructions would be nice. [...]

    Master Darque has taken over the Deadside and is trying to bring down the barrier between our dimensions. I would have loved to see the rules of magic further defined. However the writer keeps the rules nebulous so that magic can do whatever he wants it to. It's my problem with magic based comics in general.

    Better than the first volume but something is still off. I think the problem is that the author is not taking his time. No time at all is being taken to explain important things, get to know the characters better, or even train Jack as Shadowman. Baron Samedi gets introduced in like two issues that should have been an entire story arc. Dr. Mirage, who also seems really neat, shows up for an issue to do absolutely nothing. Even Master Darque's plans fall flat because the author is racing to the c [...]

    São 169 páginas, números 5-9, e se concentram na luta entre o Shadowman e o Darque, que está tentando voltar para o mundo dos vivos e acabar com tudo. O Darque é um ótimo vilão, o Shadowman, um personagem e tanto, a ambientação fodona, principalmente no deadside, mas a história um tanto linear. Esse reboot escrito pelo Justin Jordan e pelo Patrick Zircher acabou não vendendo tanto quanto os outros, o que é uma pena, e acabou sofrendo um re-reboot um pouco adiante, que tirou a cara po [...]

    Kind of lost some steam from vol.1, the inconsistency of the art in these issues was a real problemme issues were great and others had about 8 names attached to the art/inking and were really bad. The storytelling was solidly good, bordering on great with the Darque orgin (& his sister's) in the zero issue. I liked where this series was heading and suddenly it dropped off the planet with fill-in issues and a creator change. I bailed.

    This was pretty good. It really all comes together when we are introduced to Mister Darque's backstory in the next trade. The Baron Samedi aspect of the story is both welcome and unsuspecting. Adding Samedi and Doctor Mirage is important to the ongoing success of this book, because the character of Shadowman is pretty flat. He isn't as much an interesting hero, as he is an eyepiece into this horrific supernatural world.

    So the Big baddie Lord Darque finally meets the Shadowman , they have a very confusing battle , in a very confusing land of the dead , with a british talking monkey , useless secondary character , no details about the strengths of both the Hero and the Villain Basically this sucked big time , only redeeming factor is the art , The Art is simply stunning . Unsure whether I should continue with this series or not .

    Darque Reckoning (5-9). Building on the previous arc, this one offers a nice confrontation with Master Darque. It's also got great artwork and more interesting cosmology. But I just didn't love something about it. I think he characters were too distant, and the story was too focused on the plot, making the result just OK [6/10].

    the dialogue in volume 1 is pretty cheesy, but i've always loved the backstory of M. Darque and Shadowman. this volume was meh. long drawn out story, with a rushed resolution and just mediocre art. the covers are fantastic. Jaunty the Trickster is interesting. Needs more Shan Fong! Just ok. think i'll move on to getting caught up on XO.

    I love it when a book is not afraid to push some boundaries and create some interesting tension between characters. Vol. 2 of Shadowman does just this. It highlights one of the most interesting things about the book (the old version and the new), the bad guys are more interesting than the hero.

    I didn't really love the first volume, but this one was better. The art looks good, (in fact, the 'deadside' scenes look great), the story and characters are interesting enough. It doesn't really do anything super original, but it's nice and solid. I'll keep reading. 3.5.
