A Voodoo Deity Infiltrates The Mortal Plane In Shadowman #2 From Valiant

by Hannah Means Shannon

Following Valiant’s big announcement of a new Shadowman series in April, and a reveal of the first issue’s artwork, issue #2’s solicitation has been released, and a reminder that like the publisher’s other ICONS series, Shadowman will be taking part in a pre-order bundle that you need to lock down in January in order to receive.

Written by Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One) and illustrated by Stephen Segovia (Action Comics), issue #2 will arrive on April 25th, and take us into the “darkest recesses of the Deadside” to uncover the dark plans of Baron Samedi and remind us why we need Jack Boniface against the “forces of death and damnation”.

According to Valiant:

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 the Shadowman – is about to turn the Big Easy’s back alleys into a hunting ground…

Shadowman #2 features covers by Tonci Zonjic (Who is Jake Ellis?), Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Salvation), Juan José Ryp (Britannia), and Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night).
