War-Monger Takes Center Stage in February in THE FORGOTTEN QUEEN

A new limited series, via Valiant, will tell the story of a foe from the team ripped from the pages of Unity, War-Monger, in The Forgotten Queen.

The premise for the series, from the creative duo of Tini Howard and Amilcar Pinna, will follow the main character as she ascends from her presumed death to wreak havoc on the Valiant Universe, “Long ago, the mighty generals of the Mongol Empire rode from Siberia to Carpathia and conquered all who stood in its way. Legends tell of a witch who walked with them, who could infect the hearts of any warriors in her midst with an unquenchable thirst for battle and bloodshed … a War-Monger. And now she is walking again.”

“I’m a sucker for unlikable women, I’m a sucker for immortal heartbreak and I’m a sucker for defining a villain. I couldn’t resist,” Howard stated. “The Forgotten Queen is dirty and bloody, mean and ancient and modern. There are fights, sacrifices and kissing. We start on a modern research vessel working hard at sea, and we stick around to uncover what kinds of mysteries sink to the bottom of the ocean.”

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.
