The most dangerous game involves dinosaurs and soccer stars in this new epic adventure!
Valiant has been on a hot streak lately with new adventures for established characters in titles like X-O Manowar #1 and with new faces in recent collections like Divinity, Britannia, and with this week’s new release, Savage. In a day and age where there’re so many titles fighting for your hard-earned dollars, quality is king. Fortunately, Valiant looks to be making another strong case with this mini-series at a $9.99 price tag.
The story’s a fun premise to begin. A famous soccer star and his wife who used be a supermodel (I’m sure in no way related to Victoria and David Beckham), disappeared nearly fifteen years ago. There’s been no sighting of them since. To the world they were fish food after taking off on a final flight on their private jet. The world doesn’t know the true story but now you will discover their fate and the fate of the child she was carrying.
On an uncharted island filled with dangers unbeknownst by modern man, they will struggle to hang on to their humanity in the face of prehistoric threats. Yeah that’s right, freakin’ dinosaurs! Of course, dinosaurs won’t be the only challenges they encounter. Their journey from stars to savages is charted in this pulse pounding chronicle.
From the scripts of B. Clay Moore (Aloha, Hawaiian Dick) and then mastery of Clayton Henry (Archer & Armstrong) and Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), whose goal in life is to live in Jurassic Park, you’re getting incredible depictions of dinosaur hunting, drug running, plane crashes, and survival on instinct alone. Did you want “Jurassic Park” meets “Lost” with a splash of “Castaway”? Because if you didn’t know you should have wanted that, now you do.
Behold, the world’s first detective is on a case that threatens his very soul…unless he can defy the lore of the gods!
I’m cheating here, a little. Did it come out this week? No. BUT there’s a newer must-read in town and it’s my duty to make sure you know about it. I present to you, dear readers, Britannia from Valiant Entertainment.
Do you love the snarky and dark adventures of anti-heroes like John Constanine? Are you addicted to the political and fantastical drama of Game of Thrones? Do you want a great read for just $9.99 that’ll blow your mind with gorgeous art and smart characters? Then you’ve no excuse not to pick up the tale of Antonius Axia.
In 65 A.D., everything was considered the “will of the Gods.” Rome is at the peak of Nero’s reign. You owned nothing and nothing about you was considered your own. In this time, Antonius Axia serves for the glory of the Roman Empire as one of its veteran soldiers. After an experience that nearly ends his life, Antonius finds himself on the outskirts of Rome when he’s summoned by Caesar himself. He’s to be sent to one of the edges of the known world and investigate reports of abnormal and potentially monstrous events. Now, the world’s first detective will be thrust into a situation where belief and proof collide, where the most basic truths about existence as he’s known it will be challenged, and the lives of everyone on the journey are at stake.
