Valiant is proud to present the first lettered look inside 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – the FIRST FULL APPEARANCE of a formidable new force in the future of the Valiant Universe…rocketing out of the aftermath of the summer’s most ambitious crossover event! As the shockwaves from Rai’s rebellion against New Japan reverberate across Earth, join New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente(GENERATION ZERO) and the next great Valiant-exclusive superstar, Tomas Giorello (Batman & Robin), here on August 3rd with a standalone tale torn from the lawless frontiers of the 41st century!
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.
On August 3rd, the age of the War Mother begins! Behold the coming of the future’s most formidable new champion when Fred Van Lente and Tomas Giorello enter the summer’s most acclaimed comics event in 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – featuring covers from David Mack (Daredevil), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark) and Ryan Lee (Inhuman)!
