Valiant is proud to present an all-new look inside RAI #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the hotly anticipated ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Unity, Mind MGMT) with fully painted interiors by superstar artist Clayton Crain (X-Force, Carnage) arriving in stores on April 30th!

The year is 4001 A.D. – led by the artificial intelligence called “Father,” the island nation of Japan has expanded out of the Pacific and into geosynchronous orbit with the ravaged Earth below. With billions to feed and protect, it has fallen to one solitary guardian to enforce the law of Father’s empire – the mysterious folk hero known as Rai. They say he can appear out of nowhere. They say he is a spirit…the ghost of Japan. But when the first murder in a thousand years threatens to topple Father’s benevolent reign, Rai will be forced to confront the true face of a nation transformed…and his own long-lost humanity…

I will be honest, after seeing these previews for hundreds of times it's getting tiring. Yes I know, I am the one that looked. They are throwing this Rai stuff in our faces and I dont even care about it. Nothing in all these previews has got me excited. And guess what, Eternal Warrior is going on haitus for some time.

/end rant.

This looks so badass. I can't work until it finally comes out.

@themanintheshoe: Yup, It's probably gone until the end of Armor Hunters, which sucks.

Art is really nice. Story could be interesting. I like futuristic stuff, and I like Japan. Seems like a done deal.

@allstarsuperman: This is the first time this preview has been show and who said Eternal Warrior is going to be gone for some time?
