As first announced on Previewsworld, Valiant Entertainment is
excited to offer a first look at the FALLEN
WORLD #1 Glass Variant, which features a dynamic Doug Braithwaite illustration of the series’ main character, Rai, set against a red mirrored
background, all on tempered glass. It was crafted by Valiant Director of Design and
Escarfullery, and even sports the illusion of a 3D effect,
making it look like Rai is reaching out to the reader!
“Doug created this great dynamic image of Rai so I wanted to make it pop, making it look like the character was emerging from the glass,” said Escarfullery. “The red mirror effect in the background also helps to achieve the effect. A lot of the credit also has to go to our printer, who help make our crazy ideas become reality!”
The first issue in the five-issue series is available to pre-order now at comic book stores everywhere in advance of its May 1, 2019 premiere date. Along with the Glass Variant Cover, FALLEN WORLD #1 features covers by Jonboy Meyers, AJ Jothikumar, and Koi Turnbull. A Pre-order Edition cover by David Mack and a blank cover are also available.
In FALLEN WORLD, it is the year 4002. A cyborg samurai named Rai struggles to find his morality, while the nanite-filled supersoldier Bloodshot is on a mission to save the citizens of Earth. Will they work together for the greater good? (All signs point to no.) Plus, there are dinosaurs on the loose and powerful animal-human hybrid mutants! If you love smart sci-fi and engrossing world-building, writer Dan Abnett (Aquaman) and artist Adam Pollina’s (X-Force) FALLEN WORLD have you covered.
Valiant’s 2019 Free Comic Book Day offering contains an original, eight-page FALLEN WORLD story by Abnett and artist Juan José Ryp that serves as a prelude to FALLEN WORLD #1. To find a participating Free Comic Book Day shop, visit freecomicbookday.com.
