Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice start Liked the beginning of this series, although the first 2 issues are a little slow to start. Sam and his supporting cast are well rounded. Fun read and good art.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shadowman is back! This first volume reprints issues 1-4 of Shadowman from the Valiant relaunch. We are introduced to Jack Boniface, and see how be gets thrown into a new life for him, a new life as Shadowman. Set in New Orleans, Jack is a normal guy with a normal life, or so he thinks. There is evil building its power from a far away place called Lyceum. Here in this place Master Darque bides his time trying to make his way back to earth. As we see in this volume, only Shadowman can stop this evil and its minions from destroying everything. Co-writers Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher do a great job on the new character. This is not Shadowman from the 90's, this is updated for today and I think they did a great job making each issue accessible to new readers and old fans as well while they jump in and enjoy the new story. The art is beautiful and really draws you into the world. If you are a fan of tv shows like Supernatural or Buffy, or if you just like horror themed story's, check it out!!
