Valiant Entertainment has announced artist David Mack is joining the creative team of Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain for a newly expanded 4001 A.D. #1 that arrives in stores in May.
“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 in a prepared statement to the press. “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.”
Because of this addition, Valiant is expanding the page count of 4001 A.D. #1 to 40-pages, which is all good, but it gets even better as the publisher plans to keep the cover price at $3.99.
