Preview: The Valiant #1 – Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera Begin An Epic New Adventure in December!

A battle ten millennia in the making…

Valiant Entertainment has released a first look inside The Valiant #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new prestige format, four-issue limited series beginning in December from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt, and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera!

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, the Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, The Valiant is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…The Valiant.

Featuring covers by Paolo Rivera, Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt, and Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla, a universe-spanning journey featuring all of Valiant’s biggest heroes begins this December in The Valiant #1!

But when a big-time occultist with a classified military past hires her for a special job, Shan discovers a lead that might close the greatest mystery she’s ever tackled – how to get Hwen back. Now, Doctor Mirage must enter the undiscovered country and cross all the realms of the underworld, if she has any hope of rescuing the man she loves…or be forever lost beyond the earthly plane.
