The first arc of Shadow Roads, published by Oni Press and written by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, has come to a close. It’s been a nice ride and the comic will return in 2019.
The story revolves around two worlds. An American western world and a supernatural Native American world. Years back, a shaman devoured the flesh of a demon and became one himself. A collection of characters band together to try and put an end to this monster. It’s a pretty simple story. However, the magic that propels the story is intriguing and for an introductory arc, it’s well put together. in #5, the final showdown ensues, but the outcome raises more questions about the nature of this world and characters than it answers.
