Shadow Roads is the kind of graphic novel you get when you grab a handful of extremely talented writers, artists, and letterers who all have a special love for westerns and supernatural fantasy. The main cast if fairly large, eight characters in total. The volume of protagonists alone bounces the plot along a quick clip, dropping exposition, action, and mystery easily and frequently.
Recently, I’ve been on a bad streak in terms of indie comic titles, but I can assuredly say that Shadow Roads’ first arc was some of the best supernatural storytelling I’ve seen in comics. Not to mention the art feels alive and is as much a draw to graphic novel as the writing is.
