Valiant announced their plans to bring Halloween to their universe this fall with the release of their first ever Halloween special. “Shadowman” #11, written by Jim Zub with art from Miguel Sepulveda, is set on All Hallow’s Eve and it sees the titular hero fending for himself on the most horrific night of the year. The issue will ship with a few alternate covers, one of which include a fully detachable Shadowman mask.
Official Press Release:
Halloween is coming – and it’s about to hit the Valiant Universe like a ton of bricks!
Valiant is proud to announce its first standalone Halloween special, coming this October in Shadowman #11 – an all-new, hell-raising, bonfire-blazing adventure from critically acclaimed writer Jim Zub (Skullkickers) and superstar artist Miguel Sepulveda (Red Lanterns, The Thanos Imperative)!
After witnessing the origin of all Shadowmen past and present in Shadowman #10, follow Jack Boniface into his first Halloween in the Valiant Universe! It’s All Hallow’s Eve in News Orleans – and Shadowman’s about to find himself alone on the job, standing guard on the most dangerous night of the year. Still reeling from the fallout of his cataclysmic battle with Master Darque, can Jack go it alone and protect his city from the legion of evils that haunt the Halloween night? By popular demand, it’s a special October tale for Valiant’s nocturnal guardian – and a perfect jumping-on point for new readers!
“Halloween mixes in well with the supernatural action and voodoo that drives the series and this issue uses the over the top Halloween revelry in New Orleans as a backdrop for an action-packed caper,” Zub told the New York Post. “On a night where everyone is in costume and the imagery of death and the supernatural is all over the place, Shadowman can operate a bit more ‘publicly’, but the seasonal chaos also presents a whole other set of challenges.”
Featuring a standard cover by Marcus To (Cyborg 009, Batwing), also look for the Shadowman #11 Halloween Mask Cover – featuring a perforated, fully detachable Shadowman mask printed on high quality card stock that no Valiant fan will want to miss!
This October, evil has its day. Ride along when Shadowman confronts Halloween’s worst horrors in Shadowman #11 – by acclaimed creators Jim Zub and Miguel Sepulveda!
