Beautiful work: the writing, the art, the cover.
My favorite Shadowman by far. Baron Samedi has stolen the relic of the Shadowman that makes him far more formidable and placed it in the Deadside. Although Alyssa bitterly regrets sending Jack there, she must, in order for him to be able to remain topside and to keep New Orleans safe.
Baron Samedi has laid trap after trap for Jack and Shadowman, a loa that has turned his back on the trappings of the loa. Jack is close to discovering what the Shadowman really is, what the Shadowman's true name is, but he needs the help of the loa - all of whom view Shadowman as a traitor. They've turned their back on him.
His true name, and nature, has been erased.
Speaking of the loa, this feels slightly less disrespectful and problematic, but I can't say for sure and I can't pinpoint why. It is a whole bunch of fun.
