THE VALIANT #1-5 (Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt / Paolo Rivera)

Le scénariste Jeff Lemire (Justice League United, Black Hammer) rejoindra Matt Kindt (Unity, Rai) chez Valiant en décembre, pile à temps pour l’évènement de cet hiver intitulé sobrement The Valiant. Dans ette mini-série évènement en quatre numéros, Bloodshot doit faire équipe avec la nouvelle Geomancer Kay McHenry et son protecteur, le Guerrier Éternel, pour détruire l’Ennemi Immortel.

Au dessin, les fans de Daredevil retrouveront le trop rare Paolo Rivera qui signe lui aussi son premier travail pour le jeune éditeur.

[quote]You hear it all the time about how these events will change things moving forward, but “The Valiant” really is a story that puts a stake into the ground and really changes the flow of the Valiant Universe moving forward and really shakes up the status quo of a number of character, and sets the stage for the next couple years’ worth of stories. It’s something I’m really honored to be a part of, coming on fresh and working with guys like Matt who have been working in the universe for a while.

At its core, it’s really a story about the – I guess there are three leads in the book: Eternal Warrior, Geomancer – Kay McHenry – and Bloodshot. But it does touch on pretty much everybody in the Valiant Universe.[/quote]

A battle ten millennia in the making…
Valiant Entertainment is proud to present the first look inside THE VALIANT #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new prestige format four-issue limited series beginning in December from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) and Matt Kindt (RAI, UNITY, Mind MGMT), and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!
An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, 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.[/quote]
