Valiant Entertainment is bringing together Shadowman and one of the world’s hottest hip-hop acts, whose biggest hit has over 500 million YouTube views.

Shadowman / Rae Sremmurd pairs Shadowman with the real-world hip-hop duo made up of Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee. The single-issue standalone is written by Eliot Rahal (Bloodshot’s Day Off) and fully painted by Renato Guedes.  The issue will feature a cover by Guedes, interlocking covers from Leif Jones, and variants by Juan Jose Ryp and Mico Suayan.  The issue will be on sale October 4.

The story finds brothers Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee headed to New Orleans for a performance, where they encounter supernatural guardian Shadowman.

Rae Sremmurd is the Mississippi-based multi-platinum group behind "Black Beatles," the hugely popular track that backs many a "mannequin challenge" video.  The duo has been nominated for and received various BET Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and more.

Shadowman is returning in a regular solo series in 2018 (see "'Faith and the Future Force,' 'Quantum & Woody,' 'Shadowman,' More").  Reginald Hudlin was recently named co-writer and director of the Shadowman feature film (see "'Shadowman' Finds a Director").
