Valiant’s comic book universe has been lacking a certain supernatural hero, but that’s about to be corrected. Shadowman is back in 2021.
The shadow(man) strikes
If you’re a Valiant fan, then you already know that they have a healthy supernatural element. And to go right along with that, Valiant has some pretty big spooky-stars as well, with major paranormal villains and heroes. And right at the top of all of that is Shadowman.
Of course, as Valiant typically does, he’s been out of action for a while at this point. But also as Valiant does, they’re bringing him back in a big way.
Shadowman #1 was revealed yesterday, and will see Jack Boniface return as the titular character. He looks more or less the same as before, though Shadowman’s face is a bit more skull-like than it was.
Writer Cullen Bunn joins Valiant for this one, and he has more than a little experience with the genre. The creative team also is set to include artist Jon Davis-Hunt, as well as colorist Jordie Bellaire and letterer Clayton Cowles.
The new book will be landing on the racks as of this coming April (2021), and will sport a series of variant covers to mark the series’ return.
While that’s a ways off, we do have a little preview for you today. Scroll down to check that out.
