Overview
A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin... with an all-new, standalone volume from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) and Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT), and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers - those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed... and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy - a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives... and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has... THE VALIANT. An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, The Valiant is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

Gilad is a warrior who cannot die but must, time after time, face the terror of a murderous creature known only as the Immortal Enemy. He must also desperately attempt to protect a reincarnated figure named the Geomancer who, despite all efforts, is always defeated at the hands of the enemy. This is the plot of this graphic novel, crafted by the all-star creative team of Lemire (Essex County), Kindt (Super Spy), and the father-and-son Riveras (Daredevil). Despite Gilad’s history of failure, this time it looks like things may be different, with an arsenal of superhumans at his disposal. The Geomancer, this time a woman named Kay, finds herself under the careful watch of the enigmatic hero. With narrative economy, Lemire and Kindt create a story line readers will care about, populated by characters whose complexity comes from an inability to fully articulate who or what they are. The Riveras provide a beautiful visual canvas, with excellent linework backed up by a strong color palette. The result is a classic adventure story that hits all the right notes. (May.)
