Valiant Entertainment is bringing ‘Shadowman‘ back in a “powerful new ongoing series” and it sounds like a great new start for this “supernatural icon.” Written by Andy Diggle (‘Green Arrow: Year One’,’Daredevil’) with art by Stephen Segovia (‘Action Comics’), it looks like we’re in for a real treat. There is a 2-year plan for this classic character in the works and it will all be kicking off in “Fear of the Dark” this March.
Jack Boniface returns from the Deadside and heads to New Orleans, “the haunted city of his youth.” His goal is simple – to stop “a terrible new threat that will irreparably scar the Valiant Universe in its wake.”
Finding out what that will be is a bit of a mystery and of course, nothing is going to be that easy. To start with, Jack has been in seclusion for years after giving into the murderous cravings of the voodoo spirit he is bound to.

If you want to know what to expect from the upcoming series, according to Diggle:
“I love action comics and I love supernatural horror, and with SHADOWMAN I get to write both at the same time. It’s win/win. I think Jack Boniface is a character with a lot of untapped potential. He started out as this upbeat, fresh-faced young guy and since then he’s been through Hell and back. He’s carrying a burden of guilt over some bad choices he made and that’s fertile ground for a redemption story.”
Things will start off with a three-issue introduction that will let us know where Shadowman has been and serve as an introduction to new readers of the character.
