Word out of Emerald City Comicon 2016 is that artist David Mack (Fight Club 2, Daredevil) will join writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and artist Clayton Crain (RAI, X-Force) for 4001 A.D. #1. This is the first issue of Valiant's big summer event uniting Rai with the 41st century's versions of the Valiant heroes and some new ones.
"David Mack has a gorgeous, extraordinarily unique visual style, and I'm honored that he's joining the formidable team of Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain for 4001 A.D. #1," said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. "We've called 4001 A.D. Valiant's most ambitious event to date and now, with the addition of David, we're readying what is sure to be one of the most intense creative visions of 2016. From start to finish, the entire team is fortifying a whole new idea of what the future can be. Comics don't get any more satisfying – or much more beautiful – than this."
With the added Mack pages, the first issue of the series will not be expanded to 40 pages, but the cover price will remain $3.99. It's due to hit stores on May 4th.
Here are some of Mack's pages and a cover from the issue.
