SHADOWMAN (2018) #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the POWERFUL NEW ONGOING SERIES by superstar writer Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One, Daredevil) and high-octane artist Stephen Segovia (Action Comics)! On March 28th, “FEAR OF THE DARK” – the fearsome first strike in Diggle’s two-year master plan for Valiant’s supernatural icon – starts here as Jack Boniface emerges from the Deadside and returns to the haunted city of his youth, New Orleans, to head off the coming of a terrible new threat that will irreparably scar the Valiant Universe in its wake…
“I love action comics and I love supernatural horror, and with SHADOWMAN I get to write both at the same time. It’s win/win,” Diggle told IGN. “I think Jack Boniface is a character with a lot of untapped potential. He started out as this upbeat, fresh-faced young guy and since then he’s been through Hell and back. He’s carrying a burden of guilt over some bad choices he made and that’s fertile ground for a redemption story.”fcg .c q
Don’t fear your demons… Fight them! Orphaned as a child and raised on the margins of society, Jack Boniface never knew his place in the world. Until he discovered it waiting for him…in a darkness far older than the reign of men…
Unbeknownst to him, Jack was fated to become the next in a long lineage of Shadowmen – mortals bound to violent voodoo spirits of immense power – that could safeguard our world against incursions from realms beyond. For years, he struggled to control the loa’s murderous urges – a battle he eventually lost.
But now, after years of self-imposed exile, the man once known as Shadowman is returning home to sharpen the weapon within…and unleash a reckoning on the evils of our world that will soon send shockwaves through heaven and hell alike…
In the epic tradition of X-O MANOWAR and BLOODSHOT REBORN, a staggering new beginning for Valiant’s supernatural icon starts here on March 28th with PART ONE of “FEAR OF THE DARK” – a tense and gripping three-issue introduction pushing Jack Boniface to the farthest edge of fear itself…and into a startling, adrenaline-fueled fight for survival as Shadowman takes command of the birthright he was born to uphold!
This spring, red-hot creators Andy Diggle and Stephen Segovia lead the charge for Valiant’s biggest and most powerful ongoing series debut of 2018 in the all-new SHADOWMAN #1 – featuring covers by Eisner Award nominee Tonci Zonjic (Who is Jake Ellis?), Renato Guedes (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), Juan José Ryp(BRITANNIA), and Travel Foreman (Animal Man, The Ultimates)!
