Valiant is debuting a new Shadowman design in the upcoming comic Ninjak #10 (launching Dec. 9) within the new arc for the series entitled ‘Operation: Deadside.’ Artist Clayton Henry crafted the new design. Matt Kindt is writing the upcoming comic that has interior illustration work from artist Doug Braithwaite. The story was revealed by CBR this morning as an exclusive functioning as part of the publisher’s New York Comic-Con announcements.
Valiant publisher Fred Piece explained the role tone of the new arc; “Operation: Deadside is the first installment of an epic plan for Shadowman that we’ve been crafting behind the scenes for more than a year, and Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite have built one hell of a story to do it justice,” said Pierce. “But it isn’t a horror story per se. In the vein of the best sci-fi action blockbusters like Aliens and The Abyss, Operation: Deadside is an intense tale of humans pushed to the limits against an unimaginable foe at the edge of existence itself.”
