Someone’s sealed off the town of Riverrock, Wyoming, in a sphere of blood.
Superman can’t see through it, nor punch through it and Green Lantern can’t power through it, either.
Must be magic. And magic means it’s time to call in DC’s newest super-team, Shadowpact.
Spinning out of the pages of Day Of Vengeance and Infinite Crisis, this new magic-themed squad — made up of Blue Devil, Ragman, Nightmaster, Enchantress, Nightshade and (thanks again DC) Detective Chimp — gets the unenviable task of going inside the bubble (thanks to a little help from the Phantom Stranger) and figuring out who’s responsible and stopping them.
What they’ll face inside and the consequences of stopping the people behind it will come with a heavy price.
Award-winning writer Bill Willingham (Fables) continues to pen Shadowpact’s adventures, while being joined by a slew of artists including Cory Walker, Steve Scott, Tom Derenick and Shawn McManus, which makes for a mildly disjointed, but not unpleasant first volume of this new series.
