DEAD DROP #1-4 (Ales Kot / Adam Gorham)

Dernier arrivé chez Valiant, le scénariste Ales Kot se chargera d’une première mini-série en quatre chapitres intitulée Dead Drop.

Chaque numéro se concentre sur un personnage différent de l’univers Valiant alors qu’il tente d’empêcher un virus extra-terrestre de faire des dégâts sur le marché noir. Parmi eux, le lecteur retrouvera X-O Manowar, Archer, le commissaire Cujedo, Neville Alcott et Beta-Max.

Pour l’occasion, Kot collaborera à nouveau avec le dessinateur Adam Gorham, un de ses nombreux partenaire sur la série Zero.

Le premier numéro sortira en mai 2015. Ci-dessous, les couvertures de Juan Jose Ryp, Brian Level, Raul Allen et Adam Gorhan:

[quote]Both. “Dead Drop” is a series of self-contained issues, each with a slightly different theme and atmosphere, but they all connect. The first one is very much a human tank x parkour runner chase through Manhattan, the second one is – well, a chase as well, but without pants (it’s Archer, after all) with a “man chases a car through Brooklyn” vibe. The third one is spy game weirdness, and the fourth one is a whodunit.

The entire story revolves around the idea of dead drops.[/quote]

Four issues. Four stories. One ticking clock! Red-hot writer Ales Kot (Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier) and rising star Adam Gorham (Zero) start the countdown to DEAD DROP as an unlikely cast of superhuman operators fall in deep for an undercover conspiracy action thriller in the darkest corners of the Valiant Universe…
There is a secret black market in New York. It is hidden in plain sight – in our streets, trains, restaurants. Those who know how to navigate it exchange secrets of extraordinary nature. But when the secret in circulation is a biological weapon derived from Vine technology, the gloves are off – and the most extraordinary agents are released to stop the disaster before it occurs. Otherwise, in less than thirty minutes, there will be no world to come back to. X-O Manowar, Archer, Neville Alcott, Detective Cejudo and Betamax are ready to save the world.
