Valiant comics has released an official animated video trailer for the upcoming limited series The Valiant, by Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paulo Rivera. The Valiant is a self-contained event starring Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe.
The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.
