    Matt Wagner returns to Vertigo to do for Madame Xanadu what he did for the golden age Sandman. Xanadu is investigating occult related cases for hire in 1940's New York. At the same time we get unrelated stories from her distant past. In this one we see her time as a lesbian during the Spanish Inquisition. In the present, Xanadu is investigating a case of spontaneous combustion and crosses paths with the Sandman.The Good: Michael Kaluta's art is always welcome.The Bad: The Spanish Inquisition bac [...]

    Madame Xanadu is hired to solve a supernatural mystery linked to her time in Spain during the Inquisition. Wesley Dodds, the old Sandman from DC Comics, makes an appearance as well. OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus.

  • Bonnie says:

    I really enjoyed the first collection of Matt Wagner's Madame Xanadu. This one didn't do it for me though. The story follows Madame Xanadu as she does some old-fashioned detective work in 1940, following a series of mysterious deaths and reliving memories of her life in Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. I thought the plot dragged on, with occasional highlights, such as cameos from Dian Belmont and Wesley Dodds. The storyline following her time in Spain was fairly predictable - no big revelat [...]

    The magical adventures of Nimue, aka Madame Xanadu. This time, she is reminded of her own encounters with the Spanish Inquisition when men in the 1920s start dying of a curse that began generations ago. On the one hand, this is also the story of Nimue being a grand ol lesbian, which I appreciate. On the other hand, the art is terrible and the dialog and underlying plot as hackneyed as ever.

  • Derek says:

    The B story - The Inquisition was pretty amazing, a little predictable, but the writing is good enough to keep you reading. Overall, not as good as the first, but not bad itself.

  • Noetic_Hatter says:

    Volume Two is a single 5-issue story. Nimue receives a client in 1940 New York whose father appears to have spontaneously combusted. As she investigates, X flashes back to Spain 1493 and the days of the Inquisition. I don't want to give too much away, although it's not really about the plot as much as just the atmosphere. Noir and Magic mix perfectly in the 1940 story, and -- as expected -- look for an appearance by Wesley Dodds and Dian Belmont. Amy Reeder is not on this arc. Instead, we get th [...]

  • William says:

    Without the series' usual art from Amy Reeder, this second volume reads like standard supernatural-meets-noir fare, with illustrations that seem slightly fetishistic in portraying the relationship between its two most prominent female characters. This means the graphic novel sat half-read on my shelf for months after I'd started. There isn't much here to recommend.

  • Nikki (Nyx) says:

    I liked this one more than I did Disenchanted and I generally enjoyed that. I found it easier to follow and more cohesive. It was really interesting the way the events of the past and the present wove together.

  • Wing Kee says:

    An aight story with some pretty unaight art. World: I do not care for the art at all, it's too scratchy and the facial expressions are just fugly. The colors are also too warm even in the city. The world building here is strong with the two stories coking together from different time periods. It's a good continuation of the story from the last arc. Solid. Story: Interesting and also meticulous like the last arc, it's not fast and takes it's time and that's a good thing. However this time around [...]

    I actually ended up reading this on accident as I won this trade paperback at a comic book convention I attended. I knew nothing really about Madame Xanadu so I was coming in pretty fresh to this story. Madame Xanadu is a mysterious woman who owns her own occult shop in downtown New York in the 1940's. She is approached by Miss Shepard who fears that her father's death wasn't accidental as his skeleton was found "burned alive". As Madame Xanadu starts investigating, she realizes that indeed Miss [...]

  • CybcA╥ says:

    I would have given it four stars were it not for the unappealing line art. It's as if the artist/inker merely barreled along to meet a deadline and every panel looked like rough draft.

  • Nancy Meservier says:

    At the end of the first volume of Madame Xanandu, Disenchanted, our heroine opened up a shop, allowing her to read tarot cards and help people who required her supernatural expertise. In Exodus Noir, she find herself following a series of mysterious deaths. These events in 1940s New York City cause her to reflect upon her own past during the Spanish Inquisition. The further she digs into the case the more she realizes that the connection between the present and the past is stronger than she firs [...]

    Madame Xanadu Vol. 2: Exodus Noir This is the second volume of four collecting the excellent Madame Xanadu series from Vertigo/DC. The writing from Mike Wagner is excellent, as usual. I've liked pretty much everything he's ever done, from Grendel to Mage. And what can be said that hasn't been said before about William Michael Kaluta, one of the all-time greatest artists in the comics biz? This is up to his usual high standard, it's gorgeous and gritty, which definitely suits the noir tone of th [...]

  • PurplyCookie says:

    Wagner and Kaluta team up to provide more backstory for the glamorous and powerful Madame Xanadu in Exodus Noir. Collecting issues 11 through 15, the volume toggles between New York in 1940 and Spain in 1493, at the height of the Inquisition. While both portions are engaging, the New York part of the story really springs off the page.The theme of this collection is the Inquisition, with the historical setting of mid-15th century Spain, when Cardinal Torquemada's men roam the countryside in searc [...]

  • William Thomas says:

    Matt Wagner finally starts to get Madame on track with 'Exodus Noir'. Although it mimics the 'Hellblazer' formula, there's very little for Madame to do other than investigate supernatural happenings on the earthly plane (as she is neither in the league of the Phantom Stranger nor the Spectre). But it isn't the premise we should be focused on, it's the execution. And Wagner finally abandons the cornucopia of expository nonsense in order to tell a more natural story. The first volume read like a f [...]

  • Batmark says:

    Michael Kaluta is one of those artists who has such a disparate body of work that it's hard to pin him down as "the artist of [fill in the blank]," in the way that Curt Swan was known as "the Superman artist" or Gene Colan was known as "the Daredevil and Tomb of Dracula artist." So it's nice to have this book, which collects issues 11-15 of Matt Wagner's Madame Xanadu reboot, to point to as an exemplary collection of Kaluta's work. Special bonus: Kaluta just happens to be the artist who first dr [...]

  • May says:

    It's been awhile since I read the first volume of the Madame Xanadu series but I liked it so much that I knew I wanted to read the second volume as soon as it came out. Unfortunately real life intrudes and I nearly forgot about it. Thankfully, I managed to get my hands on the second volume and was not disappointed. From beginning to end, both stories (one set in 1940s New York and the other set in Spain during the time of the Inquisition) were engaging, filled with interesting characters (includ [...]

  • Elisa says:

    While not quite as problematic the first volume, it's also a lot less interesting. Exodus Noir suffers from Amy Reeder's absence and doesn't really add much to the overarching story, apart from showing that Madame Xanadu is bisexual (which I believe was already canon, though I could be wrong). I couldn't really appreciate her depicted love affair with a young woman during the Spanish Inquisition since its inevitable ending loomed throughout the story.In both volumes, Wagner makes a point of how [...]

  • Caroline says:

    I wasn't overly impressed with the first volume in this series, what with the heroine regularly needing intervention from men in order to succeed, or just flat-out losing to men. This, unfortunately, was no exception. This is a dual story, showing an early investigation on her part in the 1940s with her doing detective work to solve a murder mystery while flashing back to a love affair during the Spanish Inquisition.The flashbacks she spends being blind to the events around her, which is incredi [...]

  • Paul says:

    I had never really known or even been interested in the character of Madame Xanadu, to me she was mostly a go-to character other superheroes consulted once in a while, I had pretty much relegated her to the level of the Phantom Stranger maybe even lesser than.This all changed with the release of this book. I've been a long-time fan of Wagner from his Grendel and Mage books so I thought I'd give this a shot.So basically, this up-to-now almost completely unknown character is given a past. And what [...]

  • Joseph Teller says:

    The second of the Madame Xanadu comic collections, covering issues 11 through 15. Matt Wagner continues the authorship but now with Michael Wm. Kaluta handling the artwork. This is a darker, less amusing pair of interconnected stories. The main tale is set in the 1940s, but with a separate one about the Madame herself in the era of 1493.It includes a cameo or two of a classic golden age character, but nothing too out of step to the series. Gone too is the presence of the Phantom Stranger who was [...]

  • Alan says:

    For years I've wondered what happened to Mat Wagner the writer who's first volume of Mage, and most of his run on Grendel ranged from very good to outstanding. Because his second volume of Mage wasn't so great. Maybe he was waiting to get his hands on DC's Madame Xanadu. Volume 2 again falls into that rare category of graphic novel fantasy for adults. The story is split between 1493 Spain, 1940 NYC and a curse that has covered nearly 5 centuries (and the Inquisition-cue Mel Brooks). An added plu [...]

  • Daryl says:

    Been a long time since I read volume 1, and have only the vaguest of memories of it, but this is a whole new story. Beautiful art from Michael Kaluta. The story takes place in the 1940s, with flashbacks to Madame Xanadu's time in Spain in 1493 (don't worry; it all ties together). Wagner's story is a mystery very like his Sandman Mystery Theatre series, and even includes a cameo appearance by the Golden Age Sandman. Reminded me a lot of a Hellblazer story, with Madame Xanadu solving a supernatura [...]

  • Fantasy Literature says:

    Exodus Noir, the second volume of Matt Wagner’s Madame Xanadu series, is an impressive follow-up to the first collection, even though there is a new artist on board. However, there’s no loss in artistic quality. If I prefer the first volume to the second, it’s primarily because I love an origin story. So, my preference is less a fault of the second volume than it is the inherent focus of the first.This second volume is similar to the first in that it shifts from the present to the past. Ho [...]

  • Joseph says:

    The crossover with Wesley Dodds works perfectly here, giving Madame Xanadu the chance to truly be the protagonist of her own story, rather than merely the puppet of the Phantom Stranger. I especially liked the use of flashbacks to give greater insight into her character in a way that slowly wove its way into the 1940s story.I did prefer the art in the first volume, but I can't deny that the grittier style employed here is far more fitting to the noirish tale Wagner sets forth.

  • Rochelle says:

    I found this volume really disappointing as I felt it fell way short from the first volume Disenchanted. The artwork was completely different and not in a good way and I felt Madame Xanadu kind of lost some of what attracted me to her in the previous volume. I felt that after Disenchanted her character would be developed more and her powers expanded. This did not happen. I just felt this volume went in a completely wrong direction

  • Don says:

    The first volume of the series was okay, at best. Like I said in my review, it lacked an overall story. It was just a series of two-issue stories with no connection whatsoever.Volume 2, this book, is the type of story I was hoping for from Volume 1. In this book, Madame Xanadu is trying to solve a series of supernatural murders. Throw in some surprise guest stars for fans of the Golden Age of comics and you get a book that's interesting, engaging and maybe even a little fun.

  • David Schwan says:

    Madame Xanadu's story continues with two stories related to the Spanish Inquisition. As she solves some modern day murders in New York City we learn of her past in Spain. The story is well written, compelling and has graphics to match. Madame Xanadu meets someone in this novel who should be familiar to readers of DC Comics.

  • Renee says:

    The story was great, but 50% of the time the characters were drawn in strange and awkward poses that didn't support the overall mood or the dialog. I understand that art is open to interpretation but trying to figure out what an image should be interpreted as is distracting and takes me out of the story.
