INCURSION Tabs Geomancer and Eternal Warrior Against Imperatrix Virago in 2019

From the writing duo of Andy Diggle and Alex Paknadel and artist Doug Braithwaite comes a new installment in the Valiant Universe, which will introduce a new villain in, Incursion.

The limited series will introduce a new and ruthless intergalactic conqueror known as Imperatrix Virago. The premise reads, “Beyond the margins of human reason lies a realm known as the Deadside, where the souls of the dearly departed linger—and where demons wait for us in the dark. For countless ages, Earth’s chosen protectors have guarded the veil between both worlds—but there are other doors to the Deadside, through which gruesome terrors from galaxies untold can trespass… With the planet’s freedom at stake, can the reigning Geomancer and her steadfast Eternal Warrior stand together against an invasion unlike any they’ve ever witnessed?”

“Valiant fans will know that the Deadside is far more than just an afterlife. It’s a living, breathing ecosystem with its own customs and flora and fauna,” Paknadel proclaimed. “Imperatrix Virago doesn’t care about all that, though; for her, it’s a transport medium that will take her to any world in the universe where there is life. In other words, it’s the place from which she strikes.”

Look for Incursion #1 (of four) to land on shelves on Feb. 20, 2019, but do also keep an eye out for more exciting project announcements from Valiant, which will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year, having launched in 1989.

This series will continue what has already been set into motion with Valiant’s ‘Beyond’ initiative, which will carry the publisher into 2019 and further expand the Valiant Universe.
