Then, enter the 41st century with RAI, the formidable, sword-wielding protector of a future Earth, in a pulse-pounding prologue to the upcoming event series FALLEN WORLD by Dan Abnett and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA), which will debut just days before Free Comic Book Day! FALLEN WORLD #1, by Abnett and extraordinary artist Adam Pollina, will release on May 1st, 2019.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be selected as a Gold Sponsor by the Free Comic Book Day Selection Committee,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “The fans will love the brand-spanking-new BLOODSHOT and FALLEN WORLD stories. Since it’s a Free Comic Book Day book, we’ll be happy to refund any fan’s money who’s not satisfied.”
Free Comic Book Day is an annual event founded on the belief that every person can discover a comic book they’ll love. Every year, on the first Saturday in May, the comic book industry comes together to give away free comics and encourage comics readers of all kinds to visit their local comic shops. Local comic shops are some of the most important places in the comics community, where fans can discuss their favorite books, discover new must-read comics, and even make lifelong friends.
