Valiant’s Shadowman will return in May with a new series by Cullen Bunn, Jon Davis-Hunt, Jodie Bellaire and Clayton Cowles.
“We’re taking Shadowman in some directions he’s never been taken before,” Bunn said in a press release. “He’s confronting a growing supernatural threat that is popping up all over the world. We are introducing the concept of the Blight, which is a weakening of the veil between our world and the Deadside. And these Blights occur in places of great sorrow and misery and evil.”
Bunn added, “We’re also introducing a new villain who will be changing the face of the supernatural in the Valiant Universe.”
Shadowman first debuted in 1992, during Valiant’s first era, and was created by Jim Shooter, Steve Englehart and Mike Manley. He even had his own video game at one point. He debuted in the current Valiant era back in 2012.
“This is a horror comic dream team that looks and feels unlike anything I’ve experienced before,” editor Heather Antos said about the new title. “Everything is just… clicking. Each member of the creative team is a true master of their craft… and their craft this year is horror.”
The new series kicks off in May.
