Valiant Entertainment today released the first look inside The Valiant #1 – the first issue of their upcoming four-issue, prestige-format limited series beginning in December from writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt, and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera.
A self-contained, new reader-friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, the Eternal Warrior, Geomancer and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, The Valiant is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.
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.
