Shadowman #2 Review: A Luau for the Voodoo Loas

Shadowman is back from the Deadside, but he's lost his scythe to Baron Samedi. Worse yet, Alyssa tells him that she believes that Samedi has been making moves in Louisiana for some time.

Tread Perilously Podcast — Miami Vice: Tale Of The Goat

The final part of Tread Perilously's Assignment: Miami sees Erik and Justin watching "Tale of the Goat," a season two episode of Miami Vice that explores voodoo — or at least a mid-1980s understanding of it. Tubbs is amused when Crockett warns him about the voodoo believed by Haitian druglord Papa Legba and his followers. […]

DC's New 52 One Year On – Week Four

The Savage Hawkman began with a dark, deep, detailed mystery. But no one seemed to like that, so it turned into something brasher, with broader brush strokes, and far less subtle to the extent that the Deadpool-alike Pike in this issue event starts explaining the plot halfway through their conflict. And after the silly fight […]

Rob Liefeld Leaves Grifter – Will January Bring The DC Fourth Wave?

I really rather enjoyed today's Grifter #12. But it is one of the lower selling DC New 52 books. Rob Liefeld tweeted; As much as I love doing a bunch of books at DC, I'll be saying goodbye to Grifter with the December issue, #16. Fun ride tho. He's staying on Deathstroke and Savage Hawkman… […]

DC Comics Cancels Voodoo With #0 In September

And there we go. We knew that with four new titles, four had to go. Justice League International's last issue is in August, Voodoo, Resurrection Man and Captain Atom have been granted issue zero extensions in September. So Grifter and Blue Beetle have dodged a bullet. Could the Justice League International Annual also in August […]

Reach Of Daemonites In The DC New 52 Goes Further

We'd already seen mention of the Wildstorm alien race, the shape-shifting Daemonites, in the Wildstorm-originated books Stormwatch, Grifter and Voodoo. But this week's DC Comics All Access editorial page states that the Daemonite influence will also extend to Demon Knights, which makes some sense as it's the prototype in the past for Stormwatch in the […]

Strange Woman Of The New DCU Appears In Voodoo#1

From the CBR two page colour preview of Voodoo #1 that managed not to show any of the strip club scenes, comes this appearance of the Strange Woman Of The New DCU, hiding in the shadows. Or something. Is that a corner shadow, a dimensional portal, or something else? The light sources don't make it […]

"From Standing To Kneeling" – A Woman And The New DC Universe

No, I'm not talking about Batgirl. After all, she's gone from kneeling to standing. I'm talking about Voodoo. It was always a title that was prone to receive criticism. Voodoo #1, reboots the Wildstorm character, a member of WildCATS and last written in a solo book by Alan Moore. The revamp is written by someone […]

Saturday Runaround – DC Comics Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction

SlipWatch: Andy Khouri at Comics Alliance notes that previously associated with Supergirl, Brian Wood, who was dropped from the title weeks before the new creative team annoucement, is listed on DC's official New 52 page as writer.

And there we have it folks. Voodoo #1. By Ron Marz and Sami Basri. This marks the return of Wildstorm to the DC Universe. I don't know how much DC will be dealing with Entertainment Weekly as they totally dropped the ball on this "dark" DC coverage. Certainly a return for the DC Universe to […]
