Shadow Roads #7
Writers: Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt
Artist: A.C. Zamudio
Arc two continues with its multi-thread narrative. In this way, it distances itself even farther from the first arc of late 2018, at the same time assuring readers they are in good hands. The story has all the elements and characters readers enjoyed from Volume 1, but it’s Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt have taken on a more complex structure.
With the support of the enlisted gunslinger, Izzy, and the ghost-seeing cowboy “Ghost Eyes,” Marshal Anton Karloff seeks out a sinister organization: The Cabal. At the same time, Weathersby, now back in England, takes on a secret mission and leaves for Bombay. In the Utah Territory of America, Henry meditates with the powerfully magical knife. Inside the spirit world, in the land of the dead, he is called by someone. Bombay is the direction all our heroes make for. Something dark awaits them all.

The Empty Man #3
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Jesús Hervás
The Empty Man, published by Boom! Studios is a new ongoing series that continues in the world Cullen Bunn created in the miniseries of the same name back in 2015. The original comic miniseries was picked up by 20th Century Fox has David Prior is set to write and direct the piece. With such success, it’s no wonder Bunn and Boom! Studios have brought the concept back for an ongoing exploration of this world. Three issues in and monumental power shifts that threaten life as we know it are already at play.

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.
