Shadowpact is a group of DC heroes that deal with the supernatural issues that affect the world. I found the whole concept of Blue Devil taking Hell to court for not fulfilling their part of the bargaining both funny and intriguing. Generally the whole reason that a pact with the devil is a bad idea is because you wont really get what you want, so someone calling out Hell on this just seemed like there were so many places that they could go with this. I was disappointed when it seemed like they copped out by having had his brother sell his soul earlier in his life. I am still hoping that in a later book they will go back to this angle and maybe find a creative way around it. The second part of this volume focuses on Dr. Gotham a wizard intent on destroying Shadowpact for his master. You never really find out who his master is but that may have been revealed in an earlier volume and I didn't know that cause I started with the third volume. I actually found the Blue Devil story more interesting the Dr. Gotham thing, which is probably the more important story line. Half way through the book the art style changed and for some reason that really really threw me. I definitely want to see if I can find more volumes of this storyline because it seems like it could be really interesting (although I always hate it when there is not a single story in a volume of a graphic novel that can stand alone.)
