What happened to Shadowman? Haven't heard to much about ever since RDLT left art duties and joined this book...

Well in November there's going to be a Zero Issue for Punk Mambo; but other than that no news. Considering Valiant limits itself to 9 issues a month; I think Dr. Mirage is a stand-in for Shadowman for the time being. I don't expect to see more Shadowman until this miniseries is over. Although to be honest, personally, I think I'd rather see an ongoing Dr. Mirage if it came down to that.

That art is stellar! I haven't hopped into the Valiant universe at all yet but I plan on ordering some trades on the series that interest me once I have the time and money to do so. I've heard basically nothing but good things about the consistent quality of Valiant these days.

Valiant is the best publisher ATM, solid writing, insane art, and great crossovers.

this was such a good read!

good to see the sales were good enough to need a 2nd printing.

hopefully this good fortune stays with Valiant for a while :D

I'm not reading this but probably should be; seeing as how much I enjoyed the brief appearances of Dr. Mirage in the pages of Shadowman and love Roberto Del La Torre's art.

@the_mighty_monarch: Ok. Thanks for the info. Is Dr. Mirage really that good? Better than Shadowman?
