Here's something we don't get a lot of in Shadowman: wanton gun violence. The newest issue, which hits stands March 6th, recasts Baron Samedi, the Voodoo Loa of Death, as a gun-toting murderer who shoots up an office before swaggering out of the room. Normally, gun violence gives us pause, but this dude is the Loa of Death, so...
Also, the issue boasts an awesome variant cover by Rafael Grampá. It's just really cool looking.
