At humanity's dawn...the rise of the Shadowman of 40,000 B.C.!
His soul cast adrift in the astral void, "DEAD AND GONE" has led Jack Boniface across the centuries in search of the origin of the Shadowman's curse - and now it's taking him all the way back to the beginning of mankind! Standing beside his ancestors in the kill-or-be-killed world of primordial Africa, Jack is about to awaken something ancient, hungry, inhuman...and, as darkness descends, the long-hidden face of the Shadowman loa will be known!

    Who knew the key to building the best Shadowman lied in taking him out of the equation for awhile? It looks like it's working. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Aug 21, 2018

    Shadowman has consistently been a strong series with a lot of interesting storytelling and beautiful art. This sixth issue tells a story with a smooth pace that perfectly fits in as an installment among the others around it. It seems that Andy Diggle made sure that this issue is a perfect part of the buildup for the conclusion that is soon to come and it’s done it’s job at making me anxious for the next one.

    It looks like Jack will need to learn one more thing before he returns to the present. This issue has a real epic feel to it, thoroughly enhancing the Shadowman legacy. Some revelations are about to be made and we know Jack as a hero, but now we will know what original sacrifice had to be made. Read Full Review

    Sometimes we are more used to the drama and action from Shadowman, but right now I find myself captivated by this informative story that is revealing everything we've ever wanted to know about Jack and this loa's purpose. Shadowman #6 was a great start to the big answers, even if where they decided to end things will make the wait for the next issue dreadful. Read Full Review

    Renato Guedes once again brings it in his art. Every single panel of this book is gorgeous. Not only do the characters look great but the backgrounds are done beautifully. Read Full Review

    Shadowman #6 is a decent book. Its art is its strongest asset by far, but the story is far from bad. We are on the trail of the Shadow Loas origins on Earth, and the next issue should show us the answers and will likely take the focus of the story back to the present in doing so. This one is worth a recommendation though. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review
