I’ve mentioned this last week how excited i was about the Valiant Universe, because of the relaunch of X-O Manowar #1, which hooked me immediately, so much that I grabbed a trade of the original 1992 Shadowman series… and if you’re already confused because I’m dropping titles without context, don’t worry, I’ll catch you up: […]
This book collects Shadowman #0-7 from Valiant Comics’ 1992 run and some character info from Darque Passages #1. Shadowman is an interesting comic. It has a hero in New Orleans, in the Bayou, dealing with the swamp, the nightlife of the city. He’s definitely of that “dark vigilante” bent that came out of Frank Miller’s […]

And even then, things that are […]
Last week marked the release of Terry Moore’s new comic, Motor Girl #1. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this since the end of Rachel Rising, which is my favorite comic book series of all time, which you should check out the omnibus here.
