Revealed at #ValiantSummit 2017... SHADOWMAN RETURNS – MARCH 28, 2018

Valiant Entertainment revealed much of their publishing plans for the next year — including a new Faith series titled “Faith and the Future Force” from Jody Houser, Stephen Segovia and Barry Kitson, and a new “Quantum and Woody” series from Daniel Kibblesmith and Kano — at the “Valiant Summit” event Los Angeles, under the branding of “Icons.”

Also revealed at the event: A teaser by artist Greg Smallwood for the return of Shadowman, one of Valiant’s earliest and most prominent characters, created by Jim Shooter, Steve Englehart, David Lapham and Bob Layton and first seen in 1992. Shadowman represents the supernatural elements of the Valiant Universe, but has been mostly absent from the current titles since the most recent “Shadowman” series ended in 2014.

Valiant looks to change that in a big way — first with the character’s role in the “Rapture” minseries by Matt Kindt and CAFU, debuting in May, and then in a new “Shadowman” series starting in 2018, from an as-yet unrevealed creative team. Valiant’s “Shadowman” teaser includes the date of March 28, 2018 — which will be one year after the launch of the new “X-O Manowar” series, a very deliberate date selection as the publisher seeks to “plant their flag” on that date as an annual tradition for high-profile launches.
