Valiant Entertainment has announced 4001 A.D.: War Mother #1, that reveals a brand new new character for the Valiant Universe.

“Much like DIVINITY or GENERATION ZERO before her, War Mother represents a phenomenal new addition to Valiant’s formidable roster of comics icons,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons in a prepared statement. “Against the backdrop of the 4001 A.D. event, Fred Van Lente and Tom Giorello are zooming out to reveal a personal, yet incredibly action-packed story of what life looks like on the fringes of Earth two thousand years from today – and, via War Mother’s staggering debut, opening up a entirely new frontier for storytelling in the Valiant Universe. War Mother isn’t just a new character, she’s Valiant’s next great heavy hitter.”

In the 41st century, much of the planet has been reduced to a barren wasteland. New Japan orbits the Earth as a floating oasis that towers over the ashes of the old world. The survivors of this desolate new age, robbed of the planet’s once-lush natural resources, must endure great hardships to survive. Amidst the devastation, one outpost of scientific knowledge has thrived by adhering to a strict code of isolation. But even the denizens of this walled city must venture out into the wasteland to gather supplies from the remnants of what was. This task is designated to one and one alone: War Mother.

But all is not peaceful, even in New Japan. When the space-faring empire begins jettisoning city-sized sectors to Earth during the onset of a civil war, War Mother is called upon with a new mission: mega-salvage! Armed with a newly born sentient sniper rifle, War Mother is a one-woman army bent on sacking the crash-landed sector’s technology-laden debris for anything of value to her tribe. But, as calm turns to chaos, Sector 8146 will reveal a telling secret about Earth’s true order that will collide War Mother against her community, her code, and her calling…and bring destruction down upon one of humanity’s last surviving outposts of order.


4001 A.D.: War Mother #1 arrives in August.
