Rapture #2 Returns with Second Printing in August!
Valiant has announced that Rapture #2 – the next spectacular chapter to the summer’s astounding standalone event from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and explosive artist CAFU – has sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves everywhere with the Rapture #2 Second Printing on August 16th! As an ancient evil rises to storm the heavens, the unstoppable assassin codenamed Ninjak and the fallen supernatural guardian known as Shadowman must combine might and magic to save humanity from a catastrophe of biblical proportions!
On a scarred landscape, two otherworldly armies prepare to battle one last time, vying for control of a massive tower named from an ancient language no longer permitted to be spoken.
One army is led by a primeval force named Babel, whose goal is singular: to breach “Heaven” no matter the cost. The only thing standing in his way is a gray-haired barbaric warrior, filled with rage and regret, a man who sees this battle as his last chance for redemption. But he knows his depleted forces have little chance of victory unless aid comes.
Enter Tama: A 12-year old girl on the crest of a hill overlooking the battle, who has just become humanity’s only hope. The last in an ancient line of mystics who protect the Earth, she has foreseen this battle and knows millions will perish if she’s unable to stop it. Now Tama and her ragtag team of malcontents – Ninjak, Shadowman and Punk Mambo – must somehow defeat an elder god hell bent on piercing the heavens.
As Valiant’s fantastic superhero epic journeys toward an earth-shaking conclusion, see why critics everywhere are hailing it as the must-read event of the summer!
