Valiant Comics, in my opinion, does events right. They are not half a year long or double-shipped or over-priced. They are done by solid creators last 4 issues and have impact.
Valiant’s next event series, 4001 A.D. #1 hits stands this week.
Spoilers and a preview follow.
Lots of covers for 4001 A.D #1!
Now some interior pages from 4001 A.D. #1.
Valiant describes the issues as follows:
A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan’s justice well…and serve Father without question.
Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister secret at the heart of Father’s existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father’s kingdom…
Exiled from the only realm he’s ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself… on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth.
Here is your checklist for 4001 A.D. including tie-in issues!
