I’ve grown quite fond of this title, so was not surprised to learn recently that it will be ending soon. I can’t say I love it, but it does have interesting stories and characters that I look forward to reading more about each time I get the chance. This run suffers a bit from musical artists, with Phil Winslade drawing two, Kieron Dwyer one, and the original team of Derenick and Faucher on one. I actually like Winslade the best, as he brings an organic and naturalistic look that I think works will with these magical characters. Matt Sturges has taken over as sole writer, probably because Bill Willingham, his writing partner, is so busy elsewhere, and Matt does a fine job with these issues. Interesting insight into the worlds of Blue Devil and Nightshade are particularly good reading. Recommended, but I wouldn’t start with these issues.
