War Mother #1 – Fred Van Lente & Stephen Segovia Forge a New Myth for the Far Future on August 23rd!
Valiant has released a first look inside War Mother #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a RIVETING NEW SERIES launching the breakout hero of 4001 A.D. into her first, much-demanded limited series! On August 23rd, New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and high-octane artist Stephen Segovia tread deep into the irradiated jungles of the ruined continent once known as South America to forge a new myth of the near future – and bring Valiant’s next great hero of the 41st century out of seclusion and into her own as humanity’s last best hope for survival!
Two millennia from today, Earth is not the hospitable home we once we knew. Ravaged by an endless onslaught of war, disaster, and time, the world is littered with desolate badlands, fortified kingdoms, and secretive enclaves where humanity still clings to life… Enclaves like The Grove – Earth’s last known repository of scientific knowledge and bioengineered prosperity. Now, under the leadership of the lone protector called War Mother and her sentient sniper rifle, the denizens of The Grove face a critical choice: remain where they are and die, or find a new land and flourish. Can War Mother lead her people out of isolation and reignite the fires of a dying planet? And even if she can locate the distant citadel she seeks, can she fight back the horrors and perverse monstrosities that lurk just beyond her doorstep?
On August 23rd, war meets its match featuring covers by David Mack, Clayton Crain, Kano, Jen Bartel, and Monika Palosz!
