Shadowman to return from Valiant Comics

by Matthew Price Published: July 26, 2012

Valiant Entertainment has announced the return of fan-favorite character Shadowman, in a new comic-book series starting in November.

Writer Justin Jordan (“The Strange Talent of Luther Strode”) joins artist and co-writer Patrick Zircher (“Captain America”) as the creative team for the new title.

Here’s how Valiant describes the book in a news release:

There’s a million dreams in the Big Easy. But now its worst nightmare is about to come true. As the forces of darkness prepare to claim New Orleans as their own, Jack Boniface must embrace the legacy he was born to uphold. As Shadowman, Jack is about to become the only thing that stands between his city and an army of unspeakable monstrosities from beyond the night. But is the mantle of Shadowman a blessing or a curse? And what is the true cost of his otherworldly power?

“Shadowman is one of the most popular characters in the Valiant Universe and the fans have been asking me since day one when he’s going to return,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons in a news release. “Justin and Patrick have put together an action-packed debut that also adds an incredibly important new dimension to the Valiant Universe. And as Patrick’s pages clearly demonstrate, he’s one of the finest artists working in the medium today. We’ve got an amazing team at the helm of our fifth ongoing launch and I can’t wait for the first issue to hit the stands.”

Zircher will draw the regular cover for the issue No. 1 of the series; a “blackout” cover by Zircher will serve as the Pullbox Exclusive Variant, for customers who pre-order the comic through comic book stores.  Incentive variants will be drawn by Dave Johnson and Bill Sienkiewicz.
