Valiant’s being a big tease again. I was sent the following graphic with the tagline, “Shadows fall this November.”
Yes, there is something in that image. If you’re not seeing it, tilt your monitor or adjust the brightness.
The educated guess (“sm_teaser.jpg”) is Shadowman will be returning in November. The original Shadowman was a horror/Voodoo hero who survived a supernatural attack, only to find himself changing at night and stalking the creatures that come out after dark. We’ll see if Shadowman is still in New Orleans for the revival. The original was a jazz musician which played into the whole creature of the night motif. Hard to say if he’ll be spinning out of an existing series or starting solo. Figure more will be revealed shortly.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
