    I can't even begin to express how stoked I am for this... Rai was one of my favorites in the original Valiant! Matt Kindt has been impressive in everything I've read of his!! I can't wait until May!!!

    Yes! I've been waiting for Rai's return since Valiant relaunched almost 2 years ago; and with Crain on art to boot :D

    At least Magnus isn't a part of the Valiant U this time around, so Rai can't get it on with his girl again. I was so pissed when I read that back in the day.

    I'm equally stoked for this! TAKE.MY.MONEY.NOW.

    That image of Rai merging with the landscape gave off a very Swamp Thing feel. Anyone recall how Ghost Rider 2099 existed in such a techno worlds as well, able to traverse and emerge nearly anywhere. Things that came to mind.

    The Imperialistic Japanese Flag as his body art is bound to be more than just an aesthetic change. Wondering about the overall tone of the book.

    I can't wait for this book! Kindt's done his homework and is perfect for this title. Those Clayton Crain pages are breathtaking.
    Rai has been a favorite character of mine for years. So exited for this book. I'll be waiting for the shop to open on release day!

    Clayton Crain alone was already a sure thing, but after reading Kindt's interview I'm really excited to see the book. This will be awesome.

    This just shows the absolute commitment VEI has to great storytelling, coupled with breathtaking art. It is wonderful to see how they continue to evolve and grow as a fan based company. Kudos to Dinesh and team on another winner.

    Also Spylock will be back, a Japanese guy and a black spy working together, now that's diversity.
