    One thought on “Shaft: A Complicated Man”

    1. Another sadly under-appreciated graphic novel. This isn't the cartoonish, over-the-top movie hero Shaft. This is a gritty crime drama with a noir influence, and it's so freakin' good. John Shaft went to Vietnam to avoid a prison sentence. Back home from the war, he meets a girl. Unfortunately, his girl knows someone who's in a lot of trouble, and that trouble comes knocking on their door. It's a story about revenge, and about what can motivate someone to live on the "wrong" side of the law. Walk [...]

    2. Nicely done! I have to admit that pretty much all I know about John Shaft has come through cultural osmosis. I've never seen any of the movies, watched the TV series, or read any of the books. I've heard Isaac Hayes' theme song--and, really, who among us hasn't? --but that's about it. So I came to this pretty much a blank slate. It is, according to the introduction, something of an origin story, taking place before the books or anything pick up. We open on Shaft as an up and coming boxer. There' [...]

    3. Fun read. Real fun read.With writing smoother than butter and characters harder than nails we're treated with a stellar background dish to our beloved Shaft.

    4. Forget everything you know about Shaft from the movies. This is the Shaft from the novels and yes, he is one bad Mofo. This is 70's gritty detective pulp at its best. You can tell Walker really cares about the character. This is by far the best work of his I've read. Bilquis Everly's art works very well to capture that grime of New York City in the 70's.John Shaft is recently home from Vietnam and trying to figure out what to do with his life. While working as a private eye, he meets someone spe [...]

    5. Walker and Evely not only do justice to the source material, but also deliver a modern crime story that stands up against the current competition. The mystery itself (a woman in peril) isn't the point. Instead, this introductory volume is a spare and hard-hitting look at a man who can't back away from a fight, and the events that change him from a man of reaction to action.Evely's art is one of the big surprises of the book. She draws characters of different backgrounds that have a real weight t [...]

    6. Being a biggest fanof the movie trilogy (My Fav being,Shaft in Africa),I enjoyed very much reading this comic.The Art was on point,the story too,in the midst of 70s NYC,soul/disco music(and yes they even created/recommended​ a special playlist of soul/funk music,you can listen to,while you are reading the comic book,the list includes my favorites Isaac Hayes,Marvin Gaye,James Brown,Curtis Mayfield,Gil Scott Heroin and many other),Organized Crime,the blaxplotation story couldn't get any better. [...]

    7. It's a slow burn when dealing with John Shaft. While the book seems like it's Shaft Begins the story actually plays out like an old 1970s movie. You have the badass that the crooks underestimate. The cops think they got him on the ropes. And he's playing everyone for a fool. While protecting what he cares for, which isn't much. I liked the story even though I've read or seen it played out many times. I think its a decent read but I'm not sure where it goes from there. I would recommend this book [...]

    8. Who's the black private dick who's a sex machine with all the chicks? Shaft! But this is before all that. 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 susp [...]

    9. David Walker has deftly managed the mixture of plot and character development as we see Shaft transform into the self-confident and angry man of Tidyman’s novels. He has managed this “origins” tale with skill and created a colourful cast of supporting characters. The artwork by Bilquis Evely is exquisite and she has captured the spirit of late 1960s Manhattan. The 6 comic book series, collected in the trade paperback, has been a triumph and a credit to Walker’s determination to re-introd [...]

    10. This is a good read if you're into the character Shaft. It gives the backstory that people have wondered about since the movie came out in the 1970s and adds a lot of depth to the character. It has a good plot and moves along well, keeping things interesting, with a satisfying conclusion.

    11. Highly entertaining blaxploitation comic. Only some issues with the art keep me from giving it 5 stars.fedpeaches/2015/1

    12. 'Shaft: A Complicated Man' by David F. Walkder gives Shaft an origin story, and it's a darn good one. There is also a really good introduction by Shawn Taylor talking about the myhos of Shaft at this point in time.When we first meet Shaft, he is freshly back from Vietnam and working as a boxer. He's already pretty angry with the way things are. When he's asked to throw a fight, he winds up in the kind of trouble he doesn't want to be in. On the outs from Harlem, he finds himself working as secur [...]

    13. John Shaftone of the original African American heroes in post 60's AmericaPopularized by the series of movies starring Richard Roundtree The movies experienced unprecedented successand on top of that they kicked assShaft was a bad motherThe character originated in the novels by Ernest TidymanAn iconic character decades later even to he point of a modern version of the film starring Samuel L. JacksonNowhere as good as the original but still funenough history , back to the comicthis series details [...]

    14. I saw this series on several best of lists. I thought sure Shaft. It was in this month's Humble Bundle. I read in about an hour. it was paced very well. The art looked great. Every page added to the story. As far as origins story go this not remarkable. However the character response to that is. John Shaft is a thinking man. There is an excellent internal monologue thought the series. He has seen and done bad things but they do not make him a bad man. Underestimated by everyone Shaft carefully i [...]

    15. Young Shaft is a boxer who gets beaten to a pulp for refusing to take a dive. Two years later he's a PI, then he's in love, then the girl gets killed someone's gonna pay. I'm inclined to class this as style over substance—a lot of familiar hardboiled cliches, but it has the right blacksploitation feel and I certainly enjoyed it. It suffers from the fact that with all the scheming going on I can't figure out who was doing what to whom, though.

    16. Having always enjoyed Ernest Tidyman's novels featuring detective John Shaft it was a nice surprise to find David Walker's graphic novel so good. These days origin storiers of famous fictional characters seem like an easy money making option, but Walker shows great skill in developing Shaft's background. The artwork, story & characterisation are all excellent & I look forward to Walker's novel Shaft's Revenge.

    17. Young Shaft, early in his career is trying to establish himself as a detective, while hoping the love of a good woman will help calm the anger in his soul.It gets very rough and never gets better than bittersweet.Does a great job reintroducing us to Shaft and the version of New York that he lives in.

    18. Excellent. In six issues, the creative team tells a suspenseful, grounded mystery story that crafts Shaft's character. The writing, art, and colors work together perfectly. Highly recommend, and will be looking for more work from the creators of this one for sure.

    19. I read this via digital singles and can't wait for the trade to come out so everyone else can sink their teeth into this hard-boiled, badass, surprisingly sympathetic, brilliantly rendered tale of John Shaft.
