Media Release — Valiant is proud to present your first look inside IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the VALIANT NEXT ongoing series by New York Times best-selling creators Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry! From the award-winning creative team that brought you ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, start an all-new adventure right here on January 21st as the mysterious Ivar Anni-Padda launches into a centuries-spanning race against the clock!
At this very moment in Geneva, Switzerland, history is being made. A thousand meters underground inside the Large Hadron Collider, researcher Neela Sethi is about to discover time travel – and jeopardize her life in the process. But she doesn’t know that yet. Ten minutes from now, every deadbeat chrononaut, wannabe conqueror, and misguided protector of the timestream will be banging down her door. Good thing that the legendary Ivar, Timewalker, got there first…right? Now it’s down to history’s most jaded, most tempestuous time traveler to stop the worst of everything that is, was, and will be…before time runs out!
From the dawn of the dinosaurs…to the Battle of Trafalgar…to the year 4001…begin a clock-stopping odyssey into the distant past, far future, and every moment in between as the most unlikely Valiant hero of all leaps into his first history-ripping adventure on January 21st in IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1 – featuring covers from blockbuster artists Raul Allen (UNITY), Jorge Molina (X-Men), David Aja (Hawkeye), and Barry Kitson (Harbinger)!
