The forces of darkness are determined to claim New Orleans as their own, and Jack Boniface must accept the legacy he was born to uphold, in order to stop them. As Shadowman, Jack is about to become the only thing that stands between his city and an army of unspeakable monstrosities from beyond the night. He must pay a high price and master his new abilities before Master Darque brings down the wall between reality and the eldritch darkness of the Deadside.
Bloody-Disgusting have been very vocal about our love of Valiant’s new incarnation of “Shadowman”. Valiant’s re-launch breathed new life into this classic ’90s character, and did a great job of establishing a new mythos, strong supporting cast and delivering some fast-paced action.
Valiant recently announced that writer Peter Milligan (“Hellblazer”) and artist Roberto De La Torre (“Daredevil”) will be taking over “Shadowman” as the new creative team with issue #13. Milligan is no stranger to the occult and the arcane arts having done a legendary run on “Hellblazer”, so he’ll find himself right at home here in the pages of “Shadowman” playing with the voodoo of New Orleans. De La Torre’s dark and gritty European style is perfectly suited to capture the unsettling elements of the story that Milligan is brewing. This is a match made in hell and it will be exciting to watch them dive into the “Shadowman” mythos.
Bloody-Disgusting jumped at the chance to talk with writer Peter Milligan about his take on “Shadowman” and where we can expect the series to head in the coming months. Milligan has some really interesting things planned for Jack Boniface and he is about to peel back the layers of his past, while shining a light on the horror aspects of the title. READ MORE

Shadowman #0 is one of the best issues to come out of the newly re-launched Valiant, and it is one of the best things you’ll read this month. READ MORE

Valiant Entertainment and The Mummy producer Sean Daniel are teaming up to turn the Valiant Comic Shadowman (one of my favorite comics as a kid) into a live action feature, Deadline reports. They’ve made a deal with J. Michael Straczynski to write the script.
Straczynski’s work ranges from writing/producing TV series that include Babylon 5 and Jeremiah, scripting films that include Thor, Ninja Assassin, Underworld Awakening and the Clint Eastwood-directed Changeling, and hatching comic books that include the Amazing Spider-Man and Superman: Earth One.
The film’s logline: “The forces of darkness are determined to claim New Orleans as their own, and Jack Boniface must accept the legacy he was born to uphold, in order to stop them. As Shadowman, Jack is about to become the only thing that stands between his city and an army of unspeakable monstrosities from beyond the night. He must pay a high price and master his new abilities before Master Darque brings down the wall between reality and the eldritch darkness of the Deadside.”
“Shadowman” has sold millions of comic books sold and spawned two multi-platform video games.
The movie action comes as Valiant launches a new “Shadowman” comic book series to be released November 7, with Patrick Zircher (“Thor,” “Captain America”) and Justin Jordan (“Strange Talent Of Luther Strode”) at the helm. READ MORE
