Matt Kindt can pitch curve balls like few others can, and I also admire his ability to make characters “real” to me. And he does all this while weaving tremendous sci-fi stories, too! For the last couple of years, he’s been doing more and more for Valiant, a company I really like, so I’ve been enjoying his work on Unity, Ninjak and Rai. The story of Rai is now continuing in 4001 A.D., and the debut issue has just hit the stands. To use the technical term, it’s a doozy!
