“I wanted this story to show off a dark underbelly of the Valiant Universe,” Bunn said about what drew him to the series, “a corner of the world populated by powerful criminal organizations. My hope is that these criminal outfits start plaguing other Valiant characters. Really, I’m just here to cause trouble.”

In his hype, Bachs said Roku has such a terrific hairstyle I can’t wait to draw! Cullen’s a great writer and a wonderful person. I am very lucky to be working with him again!”

Series editor Lysa Hawkins is excited to unleash the assassin on the Valiant Universe again. “The ultimate weapon, without compromise, without compassion and without a care,” she said. “Roku answers to only one higher calling: herself. So what’s there not to love about her?”
