Peter Milligan And Roberto De La Torre To Take Over Shadowman

Shadowman 13

USA Today has revealed that Milligan and De La Torre will begin their run as the new ongoing creative team for Valiant’s Shadowman #13. The first issue of all-new story arc which is said to expose the roots of Shadowman’s superhuman abilities. Roots that began in Jack Boniface’s own tortured past, and now extend through the bloodied back-alleys of 21st century New Orleans. Shadowman #13 is also the first title in the MUST READ VALIANT initiative. A new series of self-contained stories and easy jumping-on points across the Valiant publishing line from some of the brightest talents in comics today.

Milligan told USA Today:

“My first arc will be an attempt to dig up some dirt, dislodge a few skeletons, and find out what the Hell is really going on with Jack. I’m not throwing everything out with the bath water, I’m just making the bath water a bit more grimy and, hopefully, unpleasant. Something is wrong with Jack and to find out what it is he’ll need to face some terrible truths about himself and make some big changes in his life.”

Shadowman #13 – “When a troubled young man with a history of violence and a penchant for blackouts meets an overwhelming source of power with a mystical scythe, the results are doomed to be destructive. A voodoo loa has possessed Jack Boniface – or so he believes.  But after Jack awakens in an alleyway covered in blood, he embarks on a journey across lands of shadows and death to discover if he can expel the dark force that’s seized control of his life…and which may be responsible for a violent rampage through the city he swore to protect.”
