Shadowland #2

Shadowland #2 - Comic of the DayShadowland doesn't seem to be getting great reviews from reputable comic book review sites such as ign.com, but really...who cares.

Shadowland #2 sets up what is sure to be some action packed pages for the forth part of the Shadowland storyline. It brings together Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Misty Knight, other no-name karate fighting random heroes, and a window-entering Spider-Man to brawl it out with a ton of hand ninjas, and Daredevil. There is an actual story going on, but I am ok with ignoring the content and just enjoying the anticipation of the upcoming battle.

The nice thing about the soon to happen fist-fun, eluded to in the comic of the day, is that all of the characters involved are street level fighters. There isn't a galactic presence currently in the mix that out powers one side completely, or a Ms. Marvel who could beat any one of the characters involved with a single punch. Luke Cage may be the heaviest hitter, but even cage has not shown the elite battle ability that a Thor or Nova would bring to the mix.

If Shadowland was a movie it may not win any Oscars, but it would definitely take home a few Spike TV awards.
