The darkness is now! The heroes of the Valiant Universe make their triumphant last stand at the end of all things as superstar creators Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera bring their magnum opus to its gut-wrenching conclusion!
The Immortal Enemy has all but won and only Bloodshot and Geomancer are left to stand against his darkness. Are they willing to save humanity if it means losing their own – and each other?
I don't hide my Valiant Comic hard-on. I'm relatively new to the Valiant Universe so I was thrilled when they came out with the Valiant Next series. Character mash-ups galore! The Valiant is a four issue series that brings together some of Valiant's most popular characters. Namely the Geomancer, Bloodshot (swoon), the Eternal Warrior and new-comber Ninjak (swoon).
Issue #4 is the conclusion of war between the Eternal Darkness and our heroes. Wow, didn't see that ending coming. Can't give any details or it will be spoiled. There is suspense and even a little humor. I loved when Mr. Flay (Eternal Darkness) refers to Bloodshot as Kay's little action figure. The humor is Valiant just released a Bloodshot MiniMate toy <G>. Below is a picture of my own personal one :) Seriously, how could I not?!
|still not sure if I should open it and play :)|
As always with Valiant comics the artwork is superb and bold complimenting the writing seamlessly. I was caught up in the suspense and taken by surprise at the ending. This series is also the jumping off point for Bloodshot Reborn, which you know I'll be checking out.
If you are one of those readers who don't like to wait for the next issue, now is the time to grab all four!
