When last we left The Shade, he was visiting Barcelona and a woman he saved from death as an infant and thus brought her into a life of immortality as the vampire crimefighter known as La Sangre. She's a fun character shrugging off all the moody tropes of standard suckheadery, instead being a bright and relatively happy woman of strong faith and convictions who is the most beloved hero of her adopted home.
In the next issue, we see her bringing The Shade along on a mission to stop her archnemesis, the humorless religious zealot known as The Inquisitor, and working freely with the local authorities as if she were Wonder Woman. We also get to meet another hero of Barcelona, a young man named Montpellier, and let's hope this continues a larger trend of meeting cool international heroes.
Check out these preview pages for The Shade #6 revealed by The Source, due out next week.
