Earlier this month, Valiant Entertainment announced they would have a new crime noir series entitled, The Final Witness. At the time, details were sparse but now the creative team for the comic has been revealed.
It will be written by Ray Fawkes, illustrated by Jeremy Haun, colored by Nick Filardi and lettered by Clayton Cowles. The story follows a powerful new hero, a detective and an investigative journalist as they work together to catch a serial killer before the body count becomes too high.
Below is a first look at the series and the brand-new hero’s origin.
“I’m thrilled to bring a crime-thriller twist to the Valiant superhero universe, and I’m excited to see the fans react to this book,” said Fawkes. “It’s a real ride, with a lot of twists and turns and some good, horrifying crime thrown into the mix. People who read my work know I love the darker side of things, and this book is one where I truly get to cut loose. I’m really looking forward to watching fans try to unravel the mystery!”
“I work with Ray Fawkes and our colorist Nick Filardi every chance I get,” stated Haun. “They’re some of the best talent in the business. It’s exciting to be working together on this story for Valiant.”
“The Final Witness is all about putting a twist on what it means to be a superhero — what it means to be Valiant, even,” teased editor Heather Antos. “Each issue we have new twists and reveals as we further reveal the mystery that I can guarantee readers won’t see coming, and I can’t wait for the journey to begin with the first clue in issue #1!”
The Final Witness #1 comes out April 29, 2020. Covers will be done by Rahzzah, Michael Walsh, Caspar Wijngaard, Jeremy Haun and Travis Escarfullery
