That's some amazing art. I probably wont try this because I don't like how the main character looks though.

I don't think there is anything wrong with him. He just doesn't look cool to me.... I don't know why... it's like asking someone "Why don't you like chocolate"

Looks awesome. I love Crain's art. Has this book been any good? I think I'm gonna wait the tpb.

@silver_zeal: Yup.I noticed that too.May be it is intentional.May be Rai loves to handle his katana in that way..who knows.Honestly I only pick this series for Crain's artwork.I can only hope that Matt Kindt should spice things up a little.

I love Valiant! Rai is an awesome series, but so far I fine the story a little slow! But CLAYTON CRAIN make the art look so amazing its makes everything else ok :D

It's been a good story so far - world building done right takes a bit of time. There's mystery, which is one of my favorite things about the series. I also enjoy finding the echoes of the current Valiant universe within this future setting. Beautifully rendered, too. I recommend giving it a chance!
