Being a demon has never exactly been a great deal for Daniel Cassidy — but he had no idea how much worse it could be.
Daniel, A.K.A. Blue Devil, has been fighting hard against the forces of evil for years, both alone and with his team of magical heroes, Shadowpact, trying to make up for the fact that he’s, well, a big, blue, horned devil.
All the while he’s thought he was doing a good thing, but it turns out the higher ups in Hell really appreciate the good P.R. he’s doing for them and so they’ve given him a demotion (kind of live an evil promotion) to the caste of rhyming demon.
Unfortunately this new gig, which Danny doesn’t want anything to do with in the first place, comes with the promotion (remember that reverse thing?) of the nefarious demon, Etrigan, who is now pretty seriously pissed off with the hero.
So now it’s Blue Devil and Shadowpact vs. Etrigan, with a possible civil war in Hell on the line and the results could cost a founding member of super-team their life!
Shadowpact continues to do a great job of delving into the new magical depths of the DC Universe and there’s no sign of bottom yet.
