First Look: “FEAR OF THE DARK” Stalks Forward in SHADOWMAN #2

SHADOWMAN #2

Valiant is proud to present your first lettered look insideSHADOWMAN (2018) #2 – the second pulse-pounding chapter of THE POWERFUL NEW ONGOING SERIES from superstar writer Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One, Daredevil) and incendiary artist Stephen Segovia (NINJAK, Action Comics)! On April 25th, Jack Boniface returns to the front lines of the Valiant Universe to protect the world of the living from the supernatural forces that seek to do it harm, as the next stunning, 30-page installment of “FEAR OF THE DARK” – Diggle and Segovia’s opening story arc – revives old horrors from deep within the Deadside to challenge him…

Jack Boniface has only just returned home to New Orleans…but the Deadside won’t let him stay gone! From across the veil of life and death, the malignant presence of Baron Samedi – a ravenous voodoo deity bent on consolidating power at all costs – now seeks to infiltrate the mortal plane and claim the legacy of Shadowman for himself! But even as Jack and Alyssa marshal a defense to Samedi’s inhuman agenda, a monstrous new force – driven by killer instinct and a rabid hatred of Shadowman – is about to turn the Big Easy’s back alleys into a hunting ground…

In the tradition of X-O MANOWAR and BLOODSHOT REBORN, the must-read ongoing series of 2018 stalks forward as Andy Diggle and Stephen Segovia exorcise their demons on April 25th in SHADOWMAN #2 – featuring covers by Tonci Zonjic (Who is Jake Ellis?), Renato Guedes (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA, NINJA-K), and Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night)!

But first: The saga begins on March 28th in SHADOWMAN #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of “FEAR OF THE DARK,” a tense and gripping three-issue introduction pushing Jack Boniface to the farthest edge of fear itself…and into a startling fight for survival as Shadowman takes command of the birthright he was born to uphold!

Don't fear your demons... Fight them! Orphaned as a child and raised on the margins of society, Jack Boniface never knew his place in the world. Until he discovered it waiting for him… in a darkness far older than the reign of men…

Unbeknownst to him, Jack was fated to become the next in a long lineage of Shadowmen – mortals bound to violent voodoo spirits of immense power – that could safeguard our world against incursions from realms beyond.

For years, he struggled to control the loa’s murderous urges – a battle he eventually lost.

But now, after years of self-imposed exile, the man once known as Shadowman is returning home to sharpen the weapon within…and unleash a reckoning on the evils of our world that will soon send shockwaves through heaven and hell alike…

On March 28th, Andy Diggle and Stephen Segovia prepare their onslaught on the Valiant Universe when “FEAR OF THE DARK” begins in SHADOWMAN (2018) #1 – featuring covers by Tonci Zonjic (Lobster Johnson), Renato Guedes (Wolverine), Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA), and Travel Foreman (Animal Man, The Ultimates)!
