Jack Boniface basks in the afterglow of the afterlife in Shadowman #8, an all-new jumping-on point from Valiant super-team Andy Diggle, Renato Guedes and Simon Bowland!
He’s just returned from being dead and has a deeper understanding of the Loa that gives him his arcane abilities, not to mention a new chill disposition… and now Jack is ready to go home. But waiting for him in New Orleans is a war waiting to boil over, one that’s about to pit two secret societies of considerable power against each other—and Jack’s right in the center of it!

From Valiant: NEW ARC! NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! “RAG AND BONE” – PART 1!
As Shadowman returns to New Orleans with a revelatory new understanding of the immense abilities within himself, he won’t have long to adjust…because a war for control of the ultimate magical artifact – the bones of Master Darque, his old arch-nemesis – is about to erupt out of the underground and into the harsh view of day!
On one side: The Brethren, a society of wealthy and powerful occultists obsessed with Darque’s resurrection and ushering in a millennia-long reign of darkness. On the other: Shadowman’s old allies from The Abettors…and Darque’s own sister, Sandria, who would like nothing more than to grind her brother’s bones to dust…
The endless cycle of death and rebirth stops here as Shadowman and the Darque clan usher in the reckoning they’ve waited ten lifetimes to achieve – with massive repercussions for the future of the Valiant Universe – as renowned writer Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One) and high-octane artist Renato Guedes (BLOODSHOT SALVATION) return to heed the call of “RAG AND BONE”!
