Comic Book Review: Shaft: A Complicated Man by David Walker

  Who’s the black private dick who’s a sex machine with all the chicks? Shaft! 

But this is before being a private dick. 

This is the origin of John Shaft. 

David Walker does it right. 

And Bilquis Evely’s art (and Daniela Miwa’s coloring) is superb – calling back to the comic art of the 70s. 

It’s really hard to write this review without all the language that Shaft uses. Not that I necessarily shy away from that, but if I start, I’ll never be able to stop. 

Oh, what the hell. Shaft is a Bad. Ass. 

An excellent suspenseful story – the kind that makes you so happy that you’re reading an entire trade and not having to wait for each separate issue. 

Highly recommended. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Dynamite for a copy in return for an honest review.
