Valiant Entertainment's Rai-centric "4001 A.D." #1 arrives in May with a 40-page issue kicking off the core four-issue limited series which will feed into other Valiant titles as part of the publisher's "Summer of 4001 A.D." event.
Ryan Sook is on board as one of the miniseries' cover artists, contributing a 4-piece, interlocking image that will serve as variant covers for issues #1-4. CBR News has the exclusive debut of Sook's image, in its entirety, in black and white and the final, colored version.
In "4001 A.D.," Rai will collide with heroes from the 41st century in an attempt to thwart the evil forces of New Japan. The event will also reveal the future incarnations of a number of Valiant's heroes.
"4001 A.D." #1 arrives in stores on May 4.
