Rapture is a series that takes us on a journey into strange realms and comes closest to a pure fantasy story of those currently being published by Valiant. In it, we learn of the connection between the Deadside, whence hails Shadowman, and a much lesser known but important realm–the Liveside. The relationship between them is tenuous, and the elder god Babel is about to threaten that fine balance that allows life itself to exist.

Written by Matt Kindt, with art by Cafu, the haunting atmosphere of the series pervades the various realms that Ninjak, Shadowman and Tama the Geomancer have traveled, now joined by Punk Mambo. Together they are ready to stand their ground and fight as Babel makes its last assault on the heavenly realm beyond the Deadside.
The alternative–defeat–means destruction on a global scale in “Biblical proportions”. But there’s a buried truth about Shadowman that stands at the center of this conflict and revealing it could change the Valiant Universe in ways we haven’t yet imagined.
