Then, enter the 41st century with RAI, the formidable, sword-wielding protector of a future Earth, in a pulse-pounding prologue to the upcoming event series Fallen World by Dan Abnett and artist Juan José Ryp, which will debut just days before Free Comic Book Day! Fallen World #1, by Abnett and extraordinary artist Adam Pollina, will release on May 1st, 2019.
Free Comic Book Day is an annual event founded on the belief that every person can discover a comic book they’ll love. Every year, on the first Saturday in May, the comic book industry comes together to give away free comics and encourage comics readers of all kinds to visit their local comic shops. Local comic shops are some of the most important places in the comics community, where fans can discuss their favorite books, discover new must-read comics, and even make lifelong friends.

If you want blood, you got it… but the Titans may not like it! There’s a new leader of the Blood Cult, and her name is Mother Blood! Their mission? Kidnapping the best scientific minds from around the world to perfect their emergent-energy weapon. Their next target? Steel! And the Blood Cult has an ace up its sleeve: weaponized Source Wall energy that turns its victims into blood zombies. (As if there weren’t enough blood motifs in this ish…) In the Titans’ blackest night (wink), a new hero has arrived to help turn the tide.
Breakthrough is a boundary-shattering lineup of new #1s from Valiant Entertainment that will serve as perfect jumping-on points for new fans while expanding the shared universe. Breakthrough offers every reader four new gateways to the rich storytelling of Valiant.
Breaking through this March is the previously announced The Life and Death of Toyo Harada– a heart-wrenching, character-driven tale about the world’s most powerful superhuman facing his final battle – coming from Eisner Award-nominated writer Joshua Dysart and a rotating cast of awe-inspiring artists, including CAFU, Mico Suayan, Lewis LaRosa, and Adam Pollina.
From the twisted minds of Cullen Bunn and Adam Gorham comes the debut of Punk Mambo in April. This five-issue limited series, about a British voodoo priestess lurking just outside of New Orleans, unleashes a supernatural adventure with equal parts terror and humor.
Fallen World by mastermind writer Dan Abnett and astonishing artist Adam Pollina is a five-issue event series beginning in May that will pull readers into a captivating cyberpunk future unlike any they’ve ever seen before. In the year 4002 AD, the cyborg samurai called Rai will face an impossible battle for the fate of humanity.
The slate races forward with Killers from acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore and energetic artist Fernando Dagnino, a non-stop thrill ride as the deadliest superspies on the planet compete to claim the ultimate prize, coming in July.
Four new series, four boundary-breaking tales to experience. New fans will love the wide range of stories and genres, while Valiant superfans will make new discoveries about their favorite characters. BREAKTHROUGH will propel Valiant into its breathtaking second half of 2019, featuring surprises, returns, and reveals that longtime fans have been demanding!

The Silencer finds herself in a deadly showdown with a pair of killers-Quietus and Gunn-as well as a giant kaiju monster at a Superman theme park! (No refunds given, park-goers.) If she can shoot her way out of that trouble, she’ll still have to track down Talia’s body before Leviathan can resurrect her. Of course, them being a secret evil criminal organization and all, they’ll probably have backup plans inside of contingencies wrapped up in their true motivations. At any rate, someone’s getting their soul eaten whether they like it or not!
