*Editor’s note: An advanced copy of Incursion #1 was provided by Valiant Entertainment for this review.
The Eternal Warrior is one of my favorite Valiant characters and unfortunately we don’t get to see him too often. Mostly our timeless hero shows up for big events like The Valiant or Book of the Dead, this time around Tama the Geomancer faces her greatest threat yet and her protector, Gilad, will have to do everything he can to save her AND the Earth. Incursion is the latest mini-series from Valiant Entertainment and it is written by Andy Diggle (Shadowman) and Alex Paknadel (Friendo) with art by Doug Braithwaite (X-O Manowar). Diggle has been exploring the Deadside a lot in his current run of Shadowman so it will be interesting to see if he ties anything in with Incursion. The art is stellar as usual when it comes to Brathwaite and I am always happy to see him attached to Valiant titles. A new villain rises in this series, Imperatrix Virago, who threatens the entire planet so you know the stakes will be high! I have really been looking forward to this series and the first issue did not disappoint! Incursion #1 hits comics shops on February 20th so you still have time to get your orders in! There are also some great variant covers available, which you can check out below in the preview!

Limited event series! A new villain approaches!
Beyond the margins of human reason lies a realm known as the Deadside, where the souls of the dearly departed linger – and where demons wait for us in the dark. For countless ages, Earth’s chosen protectors have guarded the veil between both worlds – but there are other doors to the Deadside, through which gruesome terrors from galaxies untold can trespass… With the planet’s freedom at stake, can the reigning Geomancer and her steadfast Eternal Warrior stand together against an invasion unlike any they’ve ever witnessed?
From celebrated writer Andy Diggle (SHADOWMAN), rising star Alex Paknadel (Friendo), and legendary artist Doug Braithwaite (X-O MANOWAR) comes a story that will rock the Valiant Universe across dimensions!
