368. Shadowman

Having recently read an old Valiant comic for Gutter Trash, I got some Valiant on the brains. If you choose to believe the wikipedia page, Shadowman is the mostest popular character in the history of all comic books from all time. I get that he was indeed popular, enough to launch a video game franchise (is two a franchise?) and have a reboot from Garth Ennis and Ashley Wood. But seriously? Shadowman Day in New Orleans? Really? Someone’s fucking with me.

He does have a nicely designed chest emblem, though.

    I don’t think I know who Shadowman is. Valiant Comics are my comic trivia Kryptonite, apparently.

    It was just a couple of weeks ago (on Shadowman day) when I took the kids down to New Orleans to visit the Shadowman theme park. As we stood in the massive line waiting to ride the Shadow-coaster I had time to contemplate why it was that you’d never drawn a picture of the Universe’s most popular character for your blog… well, I for one am glad this day has finally come. Now maybe Ice Cube can finally get the movie off the ground!
