Rai returns this winter with a new arc by the creative team of Matt Kindt and painter Clayton Crain. The pair hooked up for the first four issues, and Valiant (and fans) liked it so much, they let them take their time for another go at the future assassin/hero/tool/freedom - a heck, we don't know what to call him.
Check out this exclusive first look at Clayton Crain's art, and don't forget - there's a special pullbox edition if you pre-order at your shop.
