Valiant’s darkest hero plunges deeper into the dark side and closer to the all-new arc that debuts in issue #13.
Follow Ales Kot (Zero, Secret Avengers) & CAFU (Action Comics) into the realm of arcane horrors for “Deadside Blues”; Christopher Sebela (Fantastic Four, Captain Marvel) & Matthew Southworth (Stumptown) present the “Lucky Charm” of the Big Easy’s underworld; and Duffy Boudreau (BlackAcre) & Diego Bernard (Eternal Warrior) go “Blackout” for an uneasy day-in-the-life of Jack Boniface, the mysterious Shadowman! Plus – a special short story starring Jaunty the Deadside monkey by acclaimed webcomic creator Neil Dvorak (Easy Pieces)!
Shadowman is very much a book and a character that’s in transition right now as we head into issue #12. Up until now, Jack Boniface has thought certain things about himself, the deadside and the Shadowman-empowering Loa to be true. We’ve found out recently that all may not be as it appears to be though since the book will be taking a much darker turn next month and Jack might not like what he’s become for too much longer.
Before we get there though, Shadowman #12 will be pushing things even more towards the next level in the tale of Shadowman with an all-star issue of sorts that breaks the narrative up into three different stories. It’s a pretty cool idea that’s actually a perfect ‘jumping on’ for folks who haven’t tried Shadowman and his particular brand of super-heroics and horror as of yet.
You can grab Shadowman #12 when it hits stands this week- on November 6th. And don’t forget the all important issue #13, which’ll be arriving next month.
