Pyrate Queen #4

Peter Milligan(w), Adam Pollina(a)(c), Tamra Bonvillain(a)

After a series of successful attacks, Monday Ryan, her husband, and her crew of bandits are targeted and pursued relentlessly by the British Royal Navy. When a violent trap leads to their capture, Monday and crew are fitted for the gallows — until the Royal Navy learns that Monday’s pregnant. Civility prevents the hanging of a pregnant woman, and Monday is spared the noose, but her crew and husband are not. Set adrift on a small raft and left to her fate on the open sea, Monday vows that the life growing inside her will be born into a world where its father’s death has been avenged. She will find and kill every last soul responsible for her husband’s death, and her baby will enter into this world free of vengeance, free of bloodshed, and free of a future drenched in violence.

Lysa Hawkins Prepares us for the Deadside War as Shadowman Returns in January

Shadowman #5 Cover A Jon Davis-Hunt
Cover A Jon Davis-Hunt

Shadowman returned in 2021 with a four issue arc that brought the character back in a buzzed about series. On January 19th, the series next arc kicks off with Shadowman #5, the start of the “Deadside War“. The new arc is a jumping on point written by Cullen Bunn, with art by Pedro Andrea, color by Jordie Bellaire, and lettering by Clayton Cowles.

But, the story goes beyond the pages of Shadowman as 2022 also sees the Valiant: Fight for Deadside tabletop game coming to Kickstarter!

We got to talk to senior editor Lysa Hawkins about the series return and what we can expect for the tabletop game tie-in.

Graphic Policy: Shadowman #5 kicks off the “Deadside War”; is there going to be any effect of this felt in other Valiant titles? If so, how much coordination needs to go into something like that?

Lysa Hawkins: While the “Deadside War” takes place within the pages of Shadowman that doesn’t mean that you won’t see how it affects the various heroes of the Valiant Universe.

GP: Can you tell us if we’ll see other Valiant heroes showing up within the pages of Shadowman during the Deadside War?

LH: See previous response… :) Yes! Yes! Yes!

GP: We see Shadowman take a different approach to the burgeoning war by attempting to broker a peace; where did that idea come from?

LH: Clearly from the brilliant mind of Cullen Bunn… Jack is doing some soul searching and tries something new. You know what they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? Shadowman may not win…but he’s not crazy!

GP: What coordination is going on between the comic and the tabletop game Valiant: Fight for Deadside? Are the two connected?

LH: We are in contact regarding the game storylines and character depictions. From what I’ve seen, it looks amazing!

GP: Not to disparage Jordie Bellaire’s work, but are there any plans on releasing a few pages of the uncoloured art as a bonus feature in the comic or trade?

LH: Nothing can disparage Jordie…She rocks too hard, but yes, I believe the first previews you’ll see of Shadowman #5 will be Pedro’s pencils and inks…and boy are they good!

GP: Shadowman #5 is a jumping on point for the series and continues the series. How hard is it to balance that?

LH: That can be tricky, but not with someone like Cullen at the helm. While Shadowman #5 does continue the story Cullen started in the first arc. You don’t need to have read that arc to pick up issue #5 and start fresh. Hopefully, in the case of the new reader, you’d want to go back and pick up the first arc, but you won’t need to. 

GP: The comic has had a fantastic reception. Does that add any pressure for the new arc?

LH: Yes! But in the best of ways. Cullen’s spinning a great horror tale, Pedro’s art is on fire it’s so hot. I’m super excited to see it come out and see if that fantastic reception doesn’t just grow. I’m so thankful to our fans!

The Deadside War Begins in January in Shadowman #5

Terror takes over the Valiant Universe this January…

The critically-acclaimed series Shadowman will unleash part 1 of ‘Deadside War’ in Shadowman #5, a gripping horror storyline that will unfold within the pages of Shadowman for four issues and feature the eagerly anticipated return of fan-favorite character Punk Mambo.

Jack Boniface is Shadowman, the brave and powerful supernatural protector who keeps humanity safe from the deadly creatures that dwell within the dimension known as the Deadside. When more and more of these nightmarish creatures start clawing into the world of the living, Jack won’t be able to stand alone against the global threat.

Rising star artist Pedro Andreo joins writer Cullen Bunn for a haunting story that brings horror to new heights blending in energetic action sequences.

Every new chapter of ‘Deadside War’ in Shadowman will feature a primary cover by Jon Davis-Hunt, a new Horror Movie Homage variant cover, and a pre-order cover. See below for the SHADOWMAN #5 covers featuring artwork by Davis-Hunt, Jonathan Marks Barravecchia, and Adam Pollina.

Part 1 of ‘Deadside War’ in Shadowman #5 will kick off The Year of Valiant, a year-long celebration of Valiant throughout 2022 featuring new launches, new creators, and the return of more fan-favorite characters.
