8. ARCHER & ARMSTRONG VOL.1 THE MICHELANGELO CODE

And where do you go from there? The perfect place to start reading VALIANT monthly is the brand new SHADOWMAN #1 debuting this March.

Following in the footsteps of their epic relaunches of X-O MANOWAR, NINJAK, and more – this is a perfect place to jump into SHADOWMAN, and in the process, enter what’s happening across the shared universe of VALIANT as a whole.
In SHADOWMAN, it’s all about FIGHTING YOUR D EMONS, not fearing them!
Orphaned at birth and raised on the margins of society, Jack Boniface never knew his place in the world. Until he discovered it waiting for him… in a darkness far older than the reign of men… Unbeknownst to him, Jack was fated to become the next in a long lineage of Shadowmen – mortals bound to violent voodoo spirits of immense power – that could safeguard our world against incursions from realms beyond.
For years, he struggled to control the loa’s murderous urges – a battle he eventually lost. But now, after years of self-imposed exile, the man once known as Shadowman is returning home to sharpen the weapon within…and unleash a reckoning on the evils of our world that will soon send shockwaves through heaven and hell alike…
Written by GREEN ARROW YEAR ONE scribe ANDY DIGGLE, and featuring gorgeous art by STEPHEN SEGOVIA, the new take on SHADOWMAN blends the pulp appeal of HELLBOY with the modern day shared universe superhero action of VALIANT.
SHADOWMAN #1 starts 3/28/18! You can subscribe to SHADOWMAN with your Third Eye Pullbox by clicking here

As we said, we’re all about helping you discover your favorite thing, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re telling you now: if you love the combination of smart, sharp and compelling storytelling with a sense of shared-universe and world-building like we’ve been seeing recently with DC Comics since their REBIRTH initiative, then you will love what VALIANT is doing.
While many of these characters may be brand new to you, they’ve been around for decades, and have a long, rich history in comics that gives them every bit as much importance as some of comics biggest icons. However, at the same time, the way that the stories are told, they’re very easy for many of us who’ve never read a Valiant book before in our lives to jump in and find out just why Valiant fans are the most die-hard comic fans around!
Come by the shop, and let us help you discover the awesomeness that is VALIANT!
