In just a few months time…”THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” throttles forward as the most ambitious Valiant event of all time pits father against son for the fate of Earth!

Valiant has released a first look inside 4001 A.D. #2 (of 4) — the second star-shattering chapter of the summer’s epic Valiant event by writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Clayton Crain! On June 1st, Rai’s insurrection against his creator — the autocratic A.I. simply called Father — heats up as war comes to the space-faring nation of New Japan! With a newly recruited team of allies at his side – including the Eternal Warrior and a colossal X-O Manowar battle suit – Rai is about the launch the most powerful forces of the 41st century into a titanic firefight that will rock every corner of the Valiant Universe!

Rai is smashing headfirst into New Japan with his team of hardened rebels including the Eternal Warrior and a giant X-O Manowar mech-armor that’s been dormant for centuries! But when Father transforms New Japan into an impenetrable space dragon as a defense of last resort, what hopes will the united heroes of 4001 A.D. have of freeing the citizens of New Japan from Father’s brutal reign? Will Rai have to destroy New Japan…to save it?
