Shadowman #5 has been billed by Valiant as the first issue of an "all-new arc" and a great jumping-on point for new readers. One thing I like about the Valiant books I've read so far is that the creators give a quick synopsis of "Our Story So Far..." on the inside front cover. This is great for a neophyte who has wandered into this expansive universe without good hiking shoes (or one who has forgotten to pack a sandwich). Apparently a lot has happened in the first four issues ofShadowman and the synopsis is filled with names and places, all of which kinda got me a bit muddled.
