Crisis of the infinite Woody-verse!

Writer Tim Siedell (Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows) and Harvey Award nominees James Asmus (The Delinquents) and Pere Pérez (Archer & Armstrong) launch the world’s worst superhero team into an overloaded adventure that only a VALIANT-SIZED 40-page giant could possibly handle!

An asteroid is about to destroy the planet, but with Quantum and Woody at the front line of an international team of heroes, everything’s sure to…oh sweet mercy, we’re doomed. And that’s BEFORE Thomas Edison opens a rip in the space-time continuum and lets in the mirror-image Woody of the alterna-verse!

Reborn in blood!

The child who will save his people was born in the wilderness, under a blood moon…and now Gilad Anni-Padda, the Earth’s Eternal Warrior, must guard him and train him! An oppressed people begin to rally and fight the brutal army that rules them…but their only prize has been death. For thousands of years, the Eternal Warrior has stood under the grindstone of history, and held it back. But with so little hope for the child whose narrow shoulders must bear the weight of his people’s future, will this be the battle that finally forces surrender upon the Eternal Warrior?
