Valiant reveal first look at new “Fallen World” character designs
One of the missions Valiant Entertainment has is to create exciting, accessible comics for new and existing readers alike. Their new Breakthrough line is a great example of this, taking preexisting characters in the Valiant universe and giving them a fresh spin, making it a perfect jumping on point for new fans.
Industry vets Dan Abnett and Adam Pollina Are behind Fallen World, an upcoming miniseries that launches the Breakthrough imprint, and artist AJ Jothikumar has come up with some pretty fresh designs for the line’s favorite characters. Bloodshot has some new red digs, for one, and Rai has a sweet beard. There’s also a big elephant man and yeah SOLD, guys.
Check out the details below.
First Look: FALLEN WORLD Character Designs
As first revealed at CBR, Valiant Entertainment is thrilled to present an engrossing first look at AJ Jothikumar's charismatic character designs for FALLEN WORLD, an epic sci-fi limited series by writer Dan Abnett (Aquaman) and artist Adam Pollina (X-Force). Launching this May, FALLEN WORLD is part of the BREAKTHROUGH slate, Valiant's lineup of new titles that are perfect jumping-on spots while also greatly expanding the shared universe's mythos.
"AJ’s designs are fantastic," Abnett told CBR. "He’s visually refreshing key existing characters like Rai and Bloodshot, and supplying new looks for supporting cast members like Karana and Lula. This is a whole new world – not just because it’s 'Valiant future,' but because of the literally earth-shattering events of 4001 AD. A new age, a new dawn, a new culture growing up with a look of its own."
Feast your eyes on Jothikumar's character designs below.
Fallen World will kick off this May.
