SHADOWMAN #2 Hits the Big Easy Hard

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Shadowman #2 by rising star Justin Jordan (The Legend of Luther Strode) and comics superstar Patrick Zircher (Hulk, Captain America)! The return of Shadowman to the Valiant Universe continues on December 5th in the staggering second chapter of the new series that Fangoria calls “an eerie, demonic, face-smashing good time!”

Jack Boniface’s first night on the job may just be his last. As Shadowman, he has just inherited an untold amount of power – which would be great if he had any idea what he was doing. But he doesn’t and he’s out of time. Master Darque has dispatched the terrifying Mr. Twist to destroy Jack and the demonic creature is tearing through New Orleans in search of his prey. But if the Abettors – the mysterious organization that’s spent hundreds of years protecting the city – can reach Jack first, he just might have an outside shot at making it through the night.

Find out if the Valiant Universe’s newest midnight marauder will live to see tomorrow on December 5th, only in Shadowman #2!

Jump on board one of the most buzzed about books of the year as X-O Manowar ignites an interstellar war and changes the landscape of the Valiant Universe forever!

Hounded by the Vine at every turn since his return to Earth, X-O Manowar is about to face his most formidable foe yet – an elite unit of X-O Commandos, sent to reclaim their weapon at any cost! But if the Vine can’t defeat the X-O Manowar armor, they’ll find another human to wield it…

Cities will be leveled. Vengeance will be wrought. And a new X-O Manowar will rise – beginning in Prelude to Planet Death – Part 1 (of 2) this January in X-O Manowar #9 and concluding this February in X-O Manowar #10!

Then, X-O Manowar takes the battle away from Earth and directly to the doorstep of the Vine homeworld with Planet Death – Part 1 (of 4) in X-O Manowar #11 – featuring the triumphant return of Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord to Valiant’s signature hero.
