Our First Look At Valiant’s War Mother And The Ravaged World She Inhabits

by Hannah Means Shannon

 

Valiant have revealed a first look at the first standalone series for their far-future set leader War Mother, slated to arrive on August 23rd, 2017.

Featuring a heroine who springs out of of 4001 A.D. for a limited series, War Mother is written by Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) and drawn by artist Stephen Segovia (Ninjak, Action Comics) and the series will take us deep into the “irradiated jungles of the ruined continent” of South America where our War Mother will become humanity’s last best hope for survival.

War Mother #1 features covers by David Mack (Daredevil), Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Kano (Daredevil), Jen Bartel (Jem & The Holograms), and Monika Palosz (Bloodshot Salvation):

Our official description for this series reads:

Two millennia from today, Earth is not the hospitable home we once we knew. Ravaged by an endless onslaught of war, disaster, and time, the world is littered with desolate badlands, fortified kingdoms, and secretive enclaves where humanity still clings to life… Enclaves like The Grove – Earth’s last known repository of scientific knowledge and bioengineered prosperity. Now, under the leadership of the lone protector called War Mother and her sentient sniper rifle, the denizens of The Grove face a critical choice: remain where they are and die, or find a new land and flourish. Can War Mother lead her people out of isolation and reignite the fires of a dying planet? And even if she can locate the distant citadel she seeks, can she fight back the horrors and perverse monstrosities that lurk just beyond her doorstep?

Here’s our first look at the line art created by Stephen Segovia for this post-apocalyptic new series’ #1:
