Preview: Peter Milligan and Roberto De La Torre Demystify Shadowman #13! Must Read!
This December, comics icon Peter Milligan and visionary artist Roberto De La Torre are honing Shadowman to a razor-sharp point aimed straight at the jugular of the Valiant Universe!
Milligan and De La Torre will begin their run as Valiant’s newest ongoing creative team in Shadowman #13 – the FIRST ISSUE of all-new story arc exposing the malignant roots of Shadowman’s superhuman abilities…roots that began in Jack Boniface’s own tortured past…and now extend through the bloodied back-alleys of 21st century New Orleans.
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 through the city he swore to protect.
Featuring a standard cover by De La Torre, alongside Pullbox and incentive variants by Miguel Sepulveda, Ben Templesmith, and Shane Davis, Shadowman #13 is also the first title in the MUST READ VALIANT initiative – a new series of self-contained stories and easy jumping-on points across the Valiant publishing line from some of the brightest talents in comics today.
Get a sneak peek at things to come in Shadowman #13X – a special standalone prelude to Shadowman’s all-new story arc from Peter Milligan and newcomer Diego Bernard – bagged exclusively with Bleeding Cool Magazine #7 and available in comic stores everywhere on October 23rd!
