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)!
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.
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.
