Jack Boniface is back after five years in the Deadside and both he and Alyssa have changed. Neither is as young, or even optimistic, as they were before although both still have heroic streaks a mile wide.
Alyssa's connection to Jack brought him, and the Shadowman, back, out of Darque's grasp, but she feels abandoned. Although he didn't intend to abandon her, he did, and so her sense of betrayal is justified.
Still, they'll have to work together to keep New Orleans, and even themselves, safe.
Not crazy about the extras, although the covers alone were worth the pre-order procedure. Some beautiful exclusive covers, and a lot of the extras were 'hey, isn't this a nice comic' from those working on it, or for Valiant. The pencils and scripts were nicer, but not enough for me to keep buying this on paper. Think I might wait for a line wide Valiant sale on Comixology, and then binge, to be honest.
