Valiant’s Shadowman #1 Glow-in-the-Dark Variant Adds Brushed Metal for a True Comics First!
In advance of initial orders for Shaowman #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the new ongoing series by writer Andy Diggle and artist Stephen Segovia – Valiant has announced that it will be combining the debut issue’s ultra-limited, glow-in-the-dark variant cover with the publisher’s highly sought-after metal printing process to produce a true first in the history of the Valiant Universe: the Shadowman #1 Glow-in-the-Dark Brushed Metal Variant!
Due to popular fan and retailer demand, this strictly limited edition of Valiant’s most anticipated first issue comes printed via a special process on an actual brushed aluminum metal sheet…which will then recast the cover artwork of Eisner Award-nominated artist Tonci Zonjic in hauntingly luminescent glow-in-the-dark ink!
This highly collectible rendition of Valiant’s biggest and most anticipated ongoing series debut of 2018 is only the fourth such cover ever produced and the first to utilize a secondary glow-in-the-dark enhancement.

The Shadowman (2018) #1 Glow-In-The-Dark Brushed Metal Variant is strictly limited to one copy per qualifying storefront.

A staggering new beginning for Valiant’s supernatural icon starts here on March 28th in Shadowman (2018) #1 with PART ONE of “FEAR OF THE DARK” – a tense and gripping three-issue introduction pushing Jack Boniface to the farthest edge of fear itself…and into a startling, adrenaline-fueled fight for survival as Shadowman takes command of the birthright he was born to uphold!
Don’t fear your demons… Fight them! Orphaned as a child and raised on the margins of society, Jack Boniface never knew his place in the world. Until he discovered it waiting for him…in a darkness far older than the reign of men…
Unbeknownst to him, Jack was fated to become the next in a long lineage of Shadowmen – mortals bound to violent voodoo spirits of immense power – that could safeguard our world against incursions from realms beyond. For years, he struggled to control the loa’s murderous urges – a battle he eventually lost.
But now, after years of self-imposed exile, the man once known as Shadowman is returning home to sharpen the weapon within…and unleash a reckoning on the evils of our world that will soon send shockwaves through heaven and hell alike…
