We See Some Changes To Shadowman In The 4001 A.D. One-Shot

Valiant’s 4001 A.D. event continues on Wednesday with the solo one-shot featuring the return of Shadowman. You might notice some minor changes in the character being written by Jody Houser and Rafer Roberts and being drawn by Robert Gill… like the fact that it’s 1,985 years in the future and Shadowman is now a woman… which would make you think a title change would be in order, but Valiant is sticking with the Shadowman name and leading the charge for gender equality.
