Roku

ROKU TEASER JOHNSON

Story: Cullen Bunn · Art: Ramón F. Bachs

"A big part of the appeal of this series is the idea that Roku has never appeared in her own book before," Cullen Bunn said. "She's always been a villain or supporting character... Roku is almost a force of nature. She sets her mind on something and she does whatever it takes to accomplish that goal. Morals don't enter the equation for her. Until they do. And that's going to be a part of the challenge Roku faces. She's set on a mission, but the mission changes in a dramatic way. Once that happens, she must make some tough decisions. That kind of character is a lot of fun to write, and that's even before I send her on a breakneck action adventure that simply does not let up."[1]

Four-issue mini-series beginning on October 30, 2019.


Rai (Volume 4)

RAI TEASER RYP

Story: Dan Abnett · Art: Juan Jose Ryp

"New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and breathtaking artist Juan José Ryp (X-O MANOWAR) welcome you to the 41st century in RAI, the must-read sci-fi epic of 2019! The cyborg samurai, Rai, embarks on a thrilling quest to save the future in a journey that will introduce new worlds, new characters, and gripping adventures."[2]

The Visitor (Volume 2)

VISITOR2019 TEASER PINNA-1

Story: Paul Levitz · Art: MJ Kim

Untraceable. Unstoppable. Unkillable.

Valiant Entertainment’s comic book universe is about to get a visitor. Or, to be more accurate, it’s about to get The Visitor. A new five-issue series by former DC Comics president Paul Levitz and Russ Manning Award nominee MJ Kim (Faith: Dreamside), The Visitor follows the arrival of a mysterious figure into the Valiant universe, one with a deadly mission that could change the future — and destroy part of New York City in the process. [3]

Quantum and Woody (Volume 4)

QW2020 TEASER NAKAYAMA

Story: Christopher Hastings · Art: Ryan Browne

Earth's Last Chance Choice!

"The last Quantum & Woody series ended with the title characters on the run from the government. This new series is set to pick up there, with the Quantum and Woody’s reputation as superheroes in tatters and the duo struggling to find any sort of adventure or mission that will help them regain their relevance and status as heroes. Because these characters are typically tagged “the world’s worst superhero duo,” this is likely to prove more difficult than they expect."[4]

Ongoing series beginning on January 29, 2020.


X-O Manowar (Volume 5)

New ongoing series beginning in 2020.[5][6]
Update: The debut issue has yet to be solicited and it is unlikely that it will be released before (early) 2020.
Written by Dennis Hallum and illustrated by Emilio Laiso.
