While I really, really loved what Justin Jordan was doing with Valiant's Shadowman character (his Master Darque origin story ranks amongst the best villain origins in comics), Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, Shade the Changing Man) will soon be taking over the title. Milligan wrote one of my favorite short lived series of all time, Greek Street. His Hellblazer run was brilliant. I'm looking forward to his run on Shadowman, but I will miss Jordan...
Valiant is proud to present your first look inside Shadowman #13 – the FIRST ISSUE of a shocking new direction for New Orleans' nocturnal guardian from comics icon Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, Justice League Dark) and visionary artist Roberto De La Torre (Daredevil, Age of Apocalypse)!
When a troubled young man with a history of violence and a penchant for blackouts meets an overwhelming source of power with a mystical scythe, the results are doomed to be destructive. A voodoo loa has possessed Jack Boniface – or so he believes. But after Jack awakens in an alleyway covered in blood, he embarks on a journey across lands of shadows and death to discover if he can expel the dark force that’s seized control of his life…and which may be responsible for a violent rampage throughout New Orleans…
Featuring a standard cover by De La Torre, a Pullbox Exclusive Variant for comic shop subscribers by Miguel Sepulveda (Red Lanterns) and incentive variants by Ben Templesmith (Ten Grand), and Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One), start reading here when Peter Milligan and Roberto De La Torre drag Shadowman to his blackest depths yet with an all-new jumping-on point in Shadowman #13 – arriving in stores on December 4th!
And get a sneak peek at things to come in Shadowman #13X – a special standalone prelude to Shadowman’s all-new story arc by Peter Milligan and rising star Diego Bernard (Eternal Warrior) – bagged exclusively with Bleeding Cool Magazine #7 and available in comic stores everywhere this November!
