Writer Andy Diggle, who penned Green Arrow: Year One and some of the best issues of Daredevil is back with a powerful new ongoing series with artist Stephen Segovia. Shadowman follows orphaned as a child Jack Boniface, who never knew his place in the world until he discovered it waiting for him…in a darkness far older than the reign of men…
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…
The first issue will release with a Glow-In-The-Dark Brushed Metal Variant Cover by Tonci Zonjic:
Due in part to the 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 (Who is Jake Ellis?) in hauntingly luminescent glow-in-the-dark ink!

In addition to the Brushed Metal Variant, Valiant is also rewarding fans who reserve the first arc of Valient’s next essential monthly series with specially expanded, limited edition of each issue in the Shadowman three-part series. Each Valiant pre-order edition comes packed with trade paperback-style extras and bonus content, including creator commentary, behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of the comics, process character designs and artwork, and first looks at upcoming issues – plus an exclusive cover by visionary artist Raúl Allén (Secret Weapons) that can’t be found anywhere else!
