Shadowman #1

   The afterlife ain't what it used to be! (I have no idea what that means, it just jumped out of my keyboard of its own accord.)

   Valiant has finally resurrected its Shadowman series, with a new look and a new take on the character.

   The story begins with Alyssa Myles, a self-appointed voodoo priestess who's doing her best to safeguard New Orleans from the evil supernatural forces that threaten it.

   She finds herself facing a powerful opponent - and then an unexpected figure joins the fight.

   A lot of the issue is given over to bringing the reader up to speed on who and what Shadowman is - and where he's been.

   With powerful art and a strong story, this series is off to a good start - proving that in comics, death is just a temporary inconvenience.

   (For some characters.)

Grade: A-
