A world of corruptions and petty politics, prejudices and hate. A world with a frightening new regime taking control. A world where true power lies not with those who hold the reins, but with those who control the story. How can two guns and a devil’s stare fight the 21st Century? I couldn’t be prouder to be telling this tale. With the exceptional Daniel HDR by my side, The Shadow: Leviathan is a smart, slick, brutal takedown of today, with nothing less than a living idea holding its finger to the trigger. -- Si Spurrier

Looks really heavy-handed... but sure, I'll give it a chance. :)

Unlike in the Savage Dragon, where the good Dragon gets hunted by The Donald himself because of his anti-immigrant policy. I'm not even kidding. It's the most recent issue.

It's a bit on the nose, but it's a pretty interesting idea to put the Shadow into the role of Social Justice Warrior so directly. That last bit? "I know how you feel." is a pretty biting look into the Shadow's head, really.

One of the things that's always interesting about the Shadow is that unlike other heroes, he builds up a sizable network of helpers and confidants. Even though he was something of the Ur-superhero, that's probably one of his few really good hooks. It's good to see Spurrier leaning into that, here.

leoboiko: manga-style picture of a female-identified person with long hair, face not drawn, putting on a Japanese fox-spirit max (Default)

The idea was surprising for me at first, but then I realized (as they've shown) that "knowing the evil in their hearts" works quite well with social justice.

I think I like this. At least enough to be interested in seeing where it goes.

I wonder...

Was there ever any good and mature way comicwriters dealt with comics in the last fourty years?
Over the last months, we have seen bad examples from contemporary mainstream comics, bad examples from indepent comics, bad examples from independence comics in the eighties and bad examples from mainstream comics back in the day (Reagan the shapeshifting snakeman), but I miss the positive somewhat...
