Valiant's New Female Hero is CLASSIFIED – Not Announcing At ComicsPRO


Valiant just wrapped their retailer presentation at ComicsPRO 2016, where they offered a number of new insights into their upcoming 4001 AD crossover.

Highlighting the critical and sales success of their previous event storylines – Harbinger Wars, Armor Hunters, and Book of Death – Valiant's Hunter Gorinson and Atom Freeman promised that 4001 AD would be the publisher's most ambitious project to date.

A central component of 4001 AD's structure are four self-contained one-shots spinning out of Matt Kindt & Clayton Crain's main series – 4001 AD: X-O Manowar, 4001 AD: Bloodshot, 4001 AD: Shadowman, and a classified fourth one-shot for an as-yet unidentified new character.

After each tie-in release on stage at ComicsPRO, Valiant offered up several new details on this new addition to their line:

-Valiant confirmed that the new character would indeed be a new female hero. Gorinson said that of the introduction of this character will be a "major event," citing the reception of their hit Divinity series last year as a comparison

-However, The 4001 AD CLASSIFIED one-shot also not be the character's first appearance. In a major revelation, Valiant's reps stated the character already appeared on panel in last summer's Book of Death #1 alongside many other mystery characters. They stressed Book of Death's long-lasting ramifications on Valiant Universe and stated there are more characters from that crossover that will continue to appear in years to come.
