Get your first look at Matt Kindt and artist Clayton Crain’s 4001 A.D. #3.

Rai, the forsaken guardian of New Japan, will come face to face with Father, the all-powerful artificial intelligence that created him. And there will be a reckoning of wills that forever shape the future of the Valiant Universe.

As Rai finally reunites with his long-lost friends aboard the war-torn monstrosity that has become New Japan the war seems to be turning in their favor. However, will Rai, the Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, Lemur, Lula Lee, and the others be able to stand against Father’s increasingly ruthless defenses? And will they be able to rescue what remains of their space-faring homeland before it crashes down to Earth and destroys everything and everyone?
