Andy Diggle & Shawn Martinbrough Launch “Dead and Gone” in Shadowman (2018) #4 – In Stores June 20th!
Valiant is proud to reveal your first look at a selection of lettered pages from Shadowman (2018) #4, the start of a BRAND-NEW ARC and NEW JUMPING-ON POINT in this POWERFUL ONGOING SERIES! On June 20th, renowned writer Andy Diggle and distinguished artist Shawn Martinbrough launch the next thrilling story arc, “Dead and Gone,” as they investigate the seedy underbelly of a bygone age and uncover the secrets of Jack Boniface’s long-forgotten ancestor, Max Boniface – the Shadowman of 1940s New York!
For years, Jack Boniface believed he knew the true story of the Shadowman loa – the true story of the curse inside him. He was wrong.
For the first time, Jack Boniface is about to discover the long-hidden history of the supernatural power that became his birthright. Unmoored in time and space, the loa is about to reveal its untold dimensions…and now, the last defender of the wall between our realm and the Deadside is falling backwards through the astral void, finding himself face to face with his forebears across the centuries – from the paranoia-addled alleyways of 1940s New York to the fire-scorched plantations of the Civil War…all the way back to the primeval height of the African savannah in 40,000 B.C.!
In the shock-inducing aftermath of “Fear of the Dark,” master storyteller Andy Diggle will lead a rotating cast of superstar artists – beginning with Shawn Martinbrough and continuing with Doug Braithwaite and Renato Guedes – to reveal the full scope and power of the Shadowman mythos…and how three of its forgotten champions stoked its earliest embers…with a legend-fueled odyssey into eons past as “Dead and Gone” tells all!
