An Advanced Preview Of 4001 A.D. #2 From Valiant

Valiant's big summer event for this years is 4001 A.D. centered around their character of Rai and the remnants of their universe of characters that exist two millenniums in the future. Here we get an advanced preview of 4001 A.D. #2, written by Matt Kindt and drawn by Clayton Crain.

Rai's insurrection against his creator — the autocratic A.I. simply called Father — heats up as war comes to the space-faring nation of New Japan! With a newly recruited team of allies at his side – including the Eternal Warrior and a colossal X-O Manowar battle suit – Rai is about the launch the most powerful forces of the 41st century into a titanic firefight that will rock every corner of the Valiant Universe!

Rai is smashing headfirst into New Japan with his team of hardened rebels including the Eternal Warrior and a giant X-O Manowar mech-armor that's been dormant for centuries! But when Father transforms New Japan into an impenetrable space dragon as a defense of last resort, what hopes will the united heroes of 4001 A.D. have of freeing the citizens of New Japan from Father's brutal reign? Will Rai have to destroy New Japan…to save it?
