We've seen Maxim Boniface recently in Shadowman, but what about the original Shadowman, Maxim St James, from the classic Valiant era? We dig into the who and what of this classic character.
Specifically, we talk about Shadowman #0 (1994), Shadowman Yearbook #1 (1994), and touch on a few of the later issues of Shadowman from 1995.
This leads us to a discussion about reading older comics in general. How do we read older comics differently? Do we have specific lenses and filters for this type of read? Also, how much does the historical perspective of the time influence the way we read stuff now? How are the storytelling methods in 90s comics different from today's comics, and how does that effect our reading?
