Cullen Bunn and Jon Davis-Hunt Relaunch Shadowman at Valiant in May

Valiant Entertaiment has announced the next creative team to relaunch a series in 2020: Writer Cullen Bunn, artist Jon Davis-Hunt, colorist Jordie Bellaire, and letterer Clayton Cowles will relaunch Shadowman this May, a press release revealed.

Horror reaches new heights in SHADOWMAN #1 this May.

New York Times bestselling writer CULLEN BUNN (Venom) and the terrifyingly talented JON DAVIS-HUNT (Clean Room) pull you into the darkness. In this brand-new series, Jack Boniface, a.k.a. SHADOWMAN, faces the terrors that tear at the fabric of humanity's world. Every chapter of SHADOWMAN is a standalone descent into horror while something far more sinister emerges from shadows.

The terrifying tale starts in SHADOWMAN #1 on May 20th, 2020, featuring colors by Jordie Bellaire, letters by Clayton Cowles, and covers by Jon Davis-Hunt, Rod Reis, Dave Johnson, Tony Moore, and Jeff Dekal.

Here's what Bunn, who does not use ghostwriters for his comics (though he hasn't said anything about for his press release quotes) had to say about it:

We're taking Shadowman in some directions he's never been taken before.  He's confronting a growing supernatural threat that is popping up all over the world. We are introducing the concept of the Blight, which is a weakening of the veil between our world and the Deadside. And these Blights occur in places of great sorrow and misery and evil. We're also introducing a new villain who will be changing the face of the supernatural in the Valiant Universe.

Davis-Hunt added:

If you like horror, or action, or superheroes (and certainly if you like all three of those things), then this is definitely the book for you. If you don't like any of those things, then this book will change your mind. And did I mention the demon punching? Demons get punched. A lot.

And editor Heather Antos:

This is a horror comic dream team that looks and feels unlike anything I've experienced before. Everything is just… clicking. Each member of the creative team is a true master of their craft… and their craft this year is horror.

 

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
