Recommendation: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

James does not disappoint.

Each issue in this maxi-series is a vital part of the whole. If you have not picked it up from the start, I strongly recommend doing so. I also strongly recommend reading the entire series (or at least skimming) over again, because you will pick up on things you missed the first time around.

This is going to make for one great collected piece (at least I hope that is the plan). It also ends with nice ties to James’ previous work on The Shade…which shows great dedication, planning and a commitment to excellence on his part.

While this is the first (and final) set reviews of The Shade for #trqr, I was pretty religious about reviewing it up until Issue 9 (see Review Gallery here). No fault to the series, I was reading it right along, I just didn’t have the time to dedicate to consistent reviewing - and this book is “main course” kind of stuff, not just fluff and candy like so many other books. Reading, consuming, digesting this kind of story takes well deserved time and attention.

enJOY!

I thought it was overall good, except the chapter twelve. I enjoyed the inspiration from the Charles Dickens book, but the origins of The shade left me unsatisfied.
