Valiant Comics' shared superhero universe is smaller and less familiar than those of its major rivals, but even a small shared universe can offer a lot to learn about. To help those readers looking to take the plunge into the Valiant Universe, we’ve assembled our own team of delinquents to break things down. Steve Morris knows Valiant inside out; J.A. Micheline is new to the universe. Micheline has the questions, and Morris has the answers.
Last time, Steve introduced JAM to the four main story types in the Valiant Universe: political (books like Harbinger and Bloodshot), sci-fi (X-O Manowar), comedy (Quantum & Woody, Archer & Armstrong), and supernatural (Shadowman, The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage). He set JAM the task of reading the first sixteen issues of Shadowman and The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage --- and now they're back to talk about it!

For those who weren't able to attend NYCC, the team has posted the full teaser comic in digital form as a free (NSFW) download through October 25.CA hit up Jordan and Strahm to see what's on the horizon for the title and its team... and also to see if they'd played putt-putt together.
Last week, DC Comics and Geoff Johns announced that, after more than eight years and 100 issues, Johns would be stepping down as the writer of Green Lantern.

Last week Valiant Comics announced the impending return of yet another of the characters from its sizable stable of heroes created in the early 1990s: New Orleans' very own Shadowman.
