Valiant Entertainment has announced it will launch a new line of comics that will expand the shared universe at the company.
Four new books will be part of the Breakthrough event. According to the publisher, we can expect to see the following:
Breaking through this March is the previously announced THE LIFE AND DEATH OF TOYO HARADA – a heart-wrenching, character-driven tale about the world’s most powerful superhuman facing his final battle – coming from Eisner Award-nominated writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and a rotating cast of awe-inspiring artists, including CAFU (RAI), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), and Adam Pollina (X-Force).
From the twisted minds of Cullen Bunn (Venom) and Adam Gorham (Rocket) comes the debut of PUNK MAMBO in April. This five-issue limited series, about a British voodoo priestess lurking just outside of New Orleans, unleashes a supernatural adventure with equal parts terror and humor.
FALLEN WORLD by mastermind writer Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and astonishing artist Adam Pollina (X-Force) is a five-issue event series beginning in May that will pull readers into a captivating cyberpunk future unlike any they’ve ever seen before. In the year 4002 AD, the cyborg samurai called Rai will face an impossible battle for the fate of humanity.
The slate races forward with KILLERS from acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore (SAVAGE) and energetic artist Fernando Dagnino (Suicide Squad), a non-stop thrill ride as the deadliest superspies on the planet compete to claim the ultimate prize, coming in July.
Valiant is one of those publishers that I have not been able to get into since the mid-90s, but I like the fact that they are able to hold the shared universe together so well.
