In this Issue:
Shadow and Mr Wednesday find themselves being chased by police led by Mr. Town, a mysterious “man in black” figure. To escape, Mr. Wednesday takes Shadow “behind the scenes”, an alternate dimension that mirrors Earth-reality. They make it to their meeting, greeted by a couple of friends on Lakota territory. Whiskey Jack asks about Shadow’s dreams while Shadow busily tries to work through the storm in his mind, coming to terms with a bunch of unsavory emotions and looking for clarity.
This issue is a deep dive into Native American mythology. Mr. Wednesday is as unlikable as ever, all the while being charming. We get a good look at him as his alter ego during the “behind the scenes” jaunt. Mythology and magic play a big role in this issue and I appreciate every little thread they weave in.
