Re: The Official Valiant Comics Thread
Yeah, I liked it. It's definitely mostly based on the second version, but with Jack Boniface instead of Mike LeRoi. Having him be the host for a spirit called Shadowman is a new twist, though.
I like that he turns into Shadowman by taking off the magic amulet. A bit of a twist, normally a character would put something on to turn into their alter ego, but in this case it's to keep Shadowman from possessing Jack's body. I looked back at his father's transformation and it was after he took off the amulet, as well. Didn't catch it when I first read it.
The art is also top-notch. As good as Archer and Armstrong's, definitely better than Harbinger's.
