Judgement awaits in Shadowman: End Times #1

Is this the beginning of the end for the Shadowman, or another evolution for the character?

Jack Boniface thinks that he’s finally fixed his life – and the source of the dark power inside him. But when a figure from the past emerges to reveal the troubling truth about his destiny, the latest Shadowman will be forced to run a gauntlet of his darkest fears realized: the rise of a wild new pantheon of Voodoo loas… the return of his father, Josiah…and the earthly restoration of his oldest and deadliest enemy, Master Darque!

There’s a lot going on in this one and a ton to like if you’ve been following Valiant Comics’ supernatural hero from the very beginning. It seems like the roller coaster of change that Jack Boniface has been on since he first merged with the Loa is very much still ongoing even after the startling events of the last few issues of the monthly book too.

This of course, isn’t the monthly, but a brand new mini-series based around the character and his little outcropping of the Valiant Universe. The title of End Times, from writer Peter Milligan and penciler Valentine De Landro, refers not to the end of the world, but Jack’s own personal apocalypse as all his fears are made real… maybe.

Valiant says that the character will be pushed to the edge in the book, which should make for a wild ride of a tale if you know anything about him. As one of my favorites in the Valiant library, I can’t wait to see what they’ve cooked up for him.

Shadowman: End Times #1 (of 3) hits the stands on the 30th of this month (April).
