The other day Rich lets us know that something called Dead Drop was coming from Valiant. Well now we can put some names to the title… names like Ales Kot and Adam Gorham. The new series is being described as an undercover conspiracy action thriller and features X-O Manowar, Archer, Neville Alcott of MI-6, Beta-Max and Detective Alejandra Cejudo from Quantum And Woody.
There is a secret black market in New York. It is hidden in plain sight – in our streets, trains, restaurants. Those who know how to navigate it exchange secrets of extraordinary nature. But when the secret in circulation is a biological weapon derived from Vine technology, the gloves are off – and the most extraordinary agents are released to stop the disaster before it occurs.
Otherwise, in less than thirty minutes, there will be no world to come back to.
X-O Manowar, Archer, Neville Alcott, Detective Cejudo and Beta-Max are ready to save the world.
"With DEAD DROP, Ales Kot and Adam Gorham have drilled deep into the insane brain of the Valiant Universe, creating a helluva story featuring four characters that don't normally hang out together, including the Visigoth warrior X-O Manowar and the outdated cyborg known as Beta-Max," added Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. "Each story's unique tone is based on the issue's key character, which makes the series a combination of action, subversiveness, humor, and mystery. Across these four issues, you'll see four characters with four very different viewpoints deal with an unprecedented threat in a manner that only Ales could cook up."
The four issue miniseries is made up of self contained issues that all connect together. It kicks off in May with covers by Raul Allen, Adam Gorham, Juan Jose Ryp and Brian Level.
