    While John Shaft dwells on his number one agenda, vengeance, an old acquaintance pays him a visit at the local jiggle joint. Bamma Brooks has come to pick up Shaft and bring him for a visit with The Man. Brooks' boss Junius Tate and Vernon Gates, one of New York's most powerful men, want Shaft's help in finding the missing Marisol Dupree and the package she has in her possession. Arletha's involvement with Marisol is what got Shaft's love killed in the first place, so Shaft is on board. He was on board anyway, but that's beside the point.

    A bit of test on Shaft's abilities gets a little complicated, but Bamma seems to have a soft spot for the Vietnam vet and makes sure he takes care of the small mess for Shaft. While Bamma's working on that, it leaves Shaft to work his lead to find the chick and the package. And because Shaft is smarter than all the rest, he knows just where to look.

    The team of Walker and Evely continue to impress with their comic book rendition of the famous 70s movie stud, putting out another stellar issue. The drama continues to unfold at a steady pace and with characters that really come off the page with personality. These two work so well together on this title that it's tough to say who deserves the credit more for how believable and realistic the characters are. Junius comes off a bit cartoonish in the stuff he blurts out in the few panels he's in, but it helps with getting a little more friction between him and Shaft, and further cementing the disgust Shaft has for the man. It isn't likely that things will end well for that man.

    And hey, this issue has pasties inside…ten of them. If you haven't been reading this fantastic title by now, you don't deserve to see them.
