Valiant’s most mysterious and supernatural hero, Shadowman has been making quite the comeback to prominence here in 2018. But the tale told in issue #4 won’t be about the current version of the character, but instead focus on one of his ancestors.
Shadows of the past
Valiant is proud to announce your first look at SHADOWMAN (2018) #4, the beginning of an ALL-NEW ARC and NEW JUMPING-ON POINT in the POWERFUL ONGOING SERIES of 2018! On June 20th, incredible artist Shawn Martinbrough (Thief of Thieves) joins acclaimed writer Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One) to kick off “DEAD AND GONE,” as today’s Shadowman meets one of the many loa-ridden ancestors who came before him!
For years, Jack Boniface believed that he knew the true story of the Shadowman loa – the true story of the curse inside him. He was wrong.
For the first time, Jack Boniface is about to discover the long-hidden history of the supernatural power that became his birthright. Unmoored in time and space, the loa is about to reveal its untold dimensions…and now, the last defender of the wall between our realm and the Deadside is falling backwards through the astral void, finding himself face to face with his forebears across the centuries – from the paranoia-addled alleyways of 1940s New York to the fire-scorched plantations of the Civil War…all the way back to the primeval height of the African savannah in 40,000 B.C.!
In the shock-inducing aftermath of “FEAR OF THE DARK,” master storyteller Andy Diggle (Daredevil) will lead a rotating cast of superstar artists – beginning with Shawn Martinbrough (Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive) and continuing with Doug Braithwaite (Justice) and Renato Guedes (Wolverine) – to reveal the full scope and power of the Shadowman mythos…and how three of its forgotten champions stoked its earliest embers…with a legend-fueled odyssey into eons past as “DEAD AND GONE” tells all!
On June 20th, Andy Diggle and Shawn Martinbrough journey back to the Fightin’ Forties in SHADOWMAN (2018) #4 – featuring covers by Tonci Zonjic (Lobster Johnson), David Mack (Kabuki), David Lafuente(Ultimate Spider-Man), and Dave Johnson (100 Bullets)!
