I've been enjoying the new Valiant line since it launched earlier this year
. I'm currently reading X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong, Bloodshot, Harbinger, and Shadowman. I hope others out there share my enthusiasm for each of the storylines and wanted to chat about events that are currently taking place in the Valiant Universe, moving onto the 5th title to be launched, Shadowman.Oh...and for readers that hate spoilers, I hope others including myself include them in here, so readers proceed with a bit of caution
Now I haven't read the previous volumes so I'm not sure if this is a continuation of volume 3's storyline from Valiant or if it's just a new rendition as the previous launches from Valiant. If anyone knows, please do comment. Now I'm not a huge fan of demons and magic but I do like a good story. Shadowman, the 5th title to be launched is by no means a poorly crafted story. It's just another winner from the recent line of comics from Valiant. Patrick Zircher detailed artwork and the coloring of Brian Reber is simply breathtaking
. I've read a few reviews that have stated the detail of work that has gone into the demonic character Mr. Twist
is simply amazing, I couldn't agree more. The name only defines what the character fibrous human sacrificial makeup looks like.
Jack Boniface is our main character
, seems to be a loner finding himself back in New Orleans. His father, Josiah Boniface whom he never met died in utero. His mother died at age 10 in a car accident. He finds back in New Orleans a history of violent criminal activity entangled in his parents past. Feeling betrayed after learning of this he rejects his heritage. However, this causes a chain of events that has led Mr. Twist to locate the young man. With orders from his boss...he ventures out to destroy this young man before he learns of his heritage and the meaning of what the Shadowman is....the last line of defense between the Deadside and the world of the living. For me, the artwork alone seals the deal. I found myself staring intently at the imagery of the Mr. Twist
and his demonic henchmen. The panels and the story flow well together
So yeah, there you go and yes I didn't go into a lot of detail so get off your butt and read the series! If you have love or hate for the happenings taking place in the storyline, please do post, if not, then it'll be just be me posting
, to myself
