RAI #9 – Kindt & Crain Fall to Earth for The Orphan in August!

Valiant has released a preview of RAI #9 – the FIRST ISSUE of “The Orphan,” an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Clayton Crain! The next visionary volume of the critically acclaimed series that has wowed fans and critics starts here on August 19th as Rai finds himself exiled from his homeland and must marshal the forces of our own ravaged planet to conquer Father’s kingdom once and for all!

Broken, beaten, and cast down to Earth, Rai and his allies now find themselves hunted, persecuted, and imprisoned for their failed rebellion against Father. Stranded thousands of miles from his former home, Rai is now more determined than ever to save his friends and bring down New Japan’s malevolent ruler once and for all…but how can he do that from Earth? And just what secrets will New Japan’s rising son discover as he journeys across the face of a planet scarred by his nation’s ascent to the stars?

Featuring covers by Clayton Crain, Ryan Sook, Riley Rossmo, Ryan Lee, and Clayton Henry, jump two millennia into the future of the Valiant Universe right here as the Earth of 4001 A.D. stands revealed!
