Valiant announce new miniseries “Roku” from Cullen Bunn and Ramón F. Bachs coming October 2019
Valiant have tapped Cullen Bunn to create a new series that will “show off a dark underbelly of the Valiant Universe,” in his words. Really, is there a writer better suited for that mission than Bunn? You’d be hard-pressed to find one.
Bunn will be joined by artist Ramón F. Bachs on the miniseries Roku, which will launch this October. The series will focus on a former MI6 operative (with some fantastic hair) who has since become a contract killer, and both Bunn and Bachs sound incredibly enthusiastic about this new venture. Check out the details below.
Valiant Entertainment Announces New ROKU Series
New York, NY (July 11, 2019) – New York Times bestselling writer Cullen Bunn (PUNK MAMBO, Moon Knight) and stunning artist Ramón F. Bachs (Detective Comics, Batgirl) unleash ROKU, Valiant’s villainous redhead! Former MI6 operative turned contract killer, Roku's new mission will test her in ways she never expected!
“I wanted this story to show off a dark underbelly of the Valiant Universe, a corner of the world populated by powerful criminal organizations. My hope is that these criminal outfits start plaguing other Valiant characters. Really, I'm just here to cause trouble.”
“Roku has such a terrific hairstyle I can’t wait to draw! Cullen's a great writer and a wonderful person. I am very lucky to be working with him again!” “
"The ultimate weapon, without compromise, without compassion and without a care. Roku answers to only one higher calling: herself. So what's not to love about her?"
