Valiant Entertainment has announced an April launch for Shadowman: End Times #1, an oversized, prestige three-issue mini-series from writer Peter Milligan and artist Valentine De Landro.

Here's how Valiant describes the story:

"Jack Boniface thinks that he's finally fixed his life - and the source of the dark power inside him. But when a figure from the past emerges to reveal the troubling truth about his destiny, the latest Shadowman will be forced to run a gauntlet of his darkest fears realized: the rise of a wild new pantheon of Voodoo loas... the return of his father, Josiah...and the earthly restoration of his oldest and deadliest enemy, Master Darque. Make no mistake -- doom is coming for Shadowman...and the devastating consequences are about to lead Jack Boniface to a perilous new turning point!"

"I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that it's unlikely if Shadowman could ever be the same again after this mini-series. As to what hope fans might have of Jack and Shadowman making it out of this adventure, I'll quote Shelley: 'Hope may vanish, but can die not," Milligan said.

"Shadowman: End Times is where we absolutely blow it up," added editor Alejandro Arbona. "Peter has masterminded a long-term plan for Shadowman, and End Times is its beating heart and guts. Frankly, it's like nothing I've ever read in superhero comics. Don't think of it as an's the beginning of a Shadowman we've never seen before."

Shadowman: End Times #1 will feature covers by Giueseppe Camuncoli, Jeff Dekal and David Mack.
