Valiant Comics continues their ‘Masters’ series of graphic novels with Shadowman. Relive the original adventures of the first Shadowman from the original Valiant U way back in 1992.
I don’t know, when I say ’94 I still think it was only a few years back- but it was almost two decades ago when the Shadowman first clashed with the demons of the night in New Orleans. Now that the character has made his triumphant return to the world of comics (and it’s great, I can’t recommend the book enough) publisher Valiant Comics is releasing a ‘Valiant Masters’ edition for him.
Jack Boniface nearly died one night – attacked by something out of a nightmare. But since that terrifying experience something has changed. Now, when darkness falls, a feeling comes over him, an urge to destroy the demons that would defile his night. Wild, reckless, and hell-bent on eliminating evil in all its forms, Jack is now his city’s new protector – the nocturnal avenger simply called Shadowman.
This book assembles the first 7 issues of the comic from 1992 as well as Darque Passages #1 from 1994 and features cameos from X-O MANOWAR, Archer & Armstrong and a bunch of Valiant’s other characters.
And that’s not to mention some of the incredible talent that worked on this book. How do the likes of Steve Ditko, Steve Englehart, Bob Hall, David Lapham, Bob Layton, and Jim Shooter sound? Yeah, those are some pretty big names right there.
Valiant Masters: Shadowman will be on sale in comic shops this May and will get a a special ‘inside look’ in Valiant’s Free Comic Book day promo comic- you can look for that one on May 4th.
