VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT FOR MARCH

SHADOWMAN #1

Written by Andy Diggle, art by Stephen Segovia, covers by Tonci Zonjic, Renato Guedes, Juan Jose Ryp, Travel Foreman.

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.

32 pages, $3.99, in stores on March 28.

BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7

Written and art by Jeff Lemire, covers by Jeff Lemire, Raul Allen, Renato Guedes, David Lafuente, Bob Layton.

Told entirely in pitch-black darkness! Deployed into the demonic realm called Deadside in search of a cure for his ailing infant daughter, Bloodshot has lost the one sense he needs most to navigate the land of the dead: his sight. Blinded with only his four-legged ally, Bloodhound, to aid him, Ray Garrison must fight onward as one man against the darkness -- even as he is beset from all sides by a horde of inhuman entities that crave only death, suffering, and slaughter. Told in total darkness from Bloodshot's point of view, "The Book of the Dead" enters uncharted territory.

SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN'S STORY #0 Written by Eric Heisserer, art by Raul Allen an Particia Martin, covers by Raul Allen, Sibylline Meynet, Sija Hong, Leif Jones.

The complete Secret Weapons creative team reunites for an all-new, standalone tale spotlighting the Harbinger Foundation's most unique talent of all! Owen Cho is a conjurer...which can be a great deal more frustrating than it sounds. You see, Owen's "psiot" ability -- unlocked at great expense and even greater danger -- allows him to materialize objects out of thin air...but he can't control what to summon or when it might arrive. But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects conjured from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course!

Woody's pop has left a long trail of broken promises and broken bottles behind him across the decades. Now, Quantum and Woody -- the world's worst superhero team, currently estranged -- are thousands of miles from home, riding shotgun across Australia with the human dive bar that forever changed the course of both their lives. Will the senior Van Chelton convert his long-lost son to his hard-traveling ways? And can Quantum take on an older, smarter, and slightly more inebriated version of his unpredictable partner?
