Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Legendary creator Matt Wagner (MAGE, GRENDEL, SUPERMAN/BATMAN/WONDER WOMAN: TRINITY) is joined

by master illustrator Michael Wm. Kaluta, for a 5-issue story with the seductive sorceress he first brought to life 30 years ago.

Weaving a mystery that jumps between the Spanish Inquisition and 1940s New York City, long-buried secrets come back to life as Madame Xanadu investigates a murder 500 years in the making.

A young daughter pleads for Madame Xanadu to use her powers of sight to investigate deeper into her father's mysterious death.

But the family secrets Madame Xanadu digs up are the kind that no one truly wants brought to light. Generations of deceit can charge a heavy toll, and the fortune-teller will discover why it's better to let sleeping dogs lie.

Review:

"Wagner and Kaluta team up to provide more backstory for the glamorous and powerful Madame Xanadu in Exodus Noir. Collecting issues 12 through 15, the volume toggles between New York in 1940 and Spain in 1493, at the height of the Inquisition. In the modern era, the Gypsy sorceress tracks a demon set on destroying three men who thought they had outrun an ancient curse. Back in Spain, readers learn of Madame Xanadu's tragic affair with a ginger-haired seamstress that arouses the suspicions of the Catholic Church. The twists and turns of the two tales eventually dovetail in a dramatic conclusion that includes a cameo by another Vertigo mainstay. While both portions are engaging, the New York part of the story really springs off the page. The detailed, pulp-inspired style of Kaluta, who created the original Madame Xanadu covers for the Doorway to a Nightmare series in 1978, are a perfect fit for a dark fantasy Manhattan, and Wagner peppers the narrative with telling details. Exodus Noir should please Madame Xanadu fans, but is accessible to new readers looking for a juicy tale." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
