One of Valiant Comics’ biggest characters finally gets a solo book, with Livewire. The electric hero breaks out on her own this December.
As first revealed at The Hollywood Reporter, Valiant is proud to present your first look within the pages ofLIVEWIRE #1, the stunning new ongoing series from rising star Vita Ayala (Supergirl, Submerged) and fan-favorite artists Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Patricia Martín (SECRET WEAPONS)! OnDecember 19th, Amanda “Livewire” McKee – one of Valiant’s most important players since the days of 2012’s HARBINGER – ascends to the spotlight in her first-ever solo series in the publisher’s history!
“Amanda has always been such a strong, complex, compelling character, and I personally have been waiting for a long time for her to get her own solo title!” Ayala told THR. “Amanda deserves to shine, and the folks over at Valiant are determined that her first solo book be impactful! And honestly, we need a hero like Amanda right now.”
Accomplice. Mentor. Savior. And now, Enemy of the State. Seeking to protect other vulnerable super-powered psiots like herself, Livewire plunged the United States into a nationwide blackout with her technopathic abilities, causing untold devastation. After choosing the few over the many, she must now outrun the government she served – and those she once called allies. With the whole world hunting her, what kind of hero will Livewire be…or will she be one at all?
Also: In keeping with Valiant’s groundbreaking experiments in comic printing technology, LIVEWIRE #1 will also feature its own highly limited Glass Variant Cover – printed via a special multi-colored process on a carefully devised pane of glass, with artwork by superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (Justice)!
