A very significant comic in Valiant’s history arrives this week from the publisher, one which actually charts the timeline of the Valiant Universe for fans. Rai: The History of the Valiant Universe #1 is going to tell the story of the comic universe from the perspective of “the spirit guardian of the earth”, as he reads an ancient book charting the rise of civilizations in the Valiant U.
Written by Rafer Roberts, with art by Francis Portella, and covers by Clayton Crain, Clayton Henry, Robert Gill, Jeffrey Veregge, with an additional live action Ninjak vs. The Valiant Universe cover available, this comic is set in the year 4002 A.D and spans history dating back to Mesopotamia and features the rise of our main heroes and villains.
