Valiant Reveals Details and Artwork From New Rai Series

First announced during the Diamond Retailer Lunch at San Diego Comic-Con, Valiant Entertainment is launching a new Rai series in November, from the creative team of Dan Abnett and Juan José Ryp. And in a press release today, Valiant revealed more details as well as interior artwork from the first five issues of the comic.

New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and breathtaking artist Juan José Ryp (X-O MANOWAR) welcome you to the 41st century in RAI, the must-read sci-fi epic of 2019! The cyborg samurai, Rai, embarks on a thrilling quest to save the future in a journey that will introduce new worlds, new characters, and gripping adventures.

RAI #1, the first chapter of the enthralling sci-fi ongoing series, goes on sale November 20th, 2019, featuring colors by Andrew Dalhouse (The Flash), letters by Dave Sharpe (X-O MANOWAR), and covers by Juan, Adam Pollina (FALLEN WORLD), and José Ladrönn (Planet Hulk)!

Said Abnett:

It’s got a blend of action, sci-fi, a little horror and a lot of character. I think it’s a very distinctive book that has its own special feel. The perfect place to join in if you’re a new reader and you want to find out why people are raving about Valiant books.

And Ryp:

Everything is part of a great puzzle! The story surprises me by its crazy coherence. It is magnificent!

And editor Lysa Hawkins:

Quite honestly, I feel like we hit the jackpot. I challenge anyone to read this book and tell me differently.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
