<i>Fallen World</i> Begins in This Exclusive <i>Valiant FCBD Bloodshot 2019 Special</i> Preview

The first Saturday of May is one of the comic world’s holiest days: Free Comic Book Day, or FCBD. Participating comic stores offer dozens of free teaser comics to readers new and old at no charge (although retailers still pay a cost for each copy, so be sure to buy something when you’re there to show support for your local shop). The goal of the annual event is to share excitement for the medium, entice readers with upcoming titles and pull in new audiences to enjoy the art form.

Valiant Entertainment typically seizes the visibility afforded by FCBD to tease major new storylines, and FCBD 2019 is no exception. The Valiant FCBD Bloodshot 2019 Special features two exclusive tales: a lead story starring soon-to-be movie star Bloodshot (duh) and a backup short that kicks off the Rai-centric Fallen World series launching later this May from writer Dan Abnett and artist Adam Pollina. In advance of Monday’s final-order deadline for FCBD issues, Paste has an exclusive look at artist Juan José Ryp interior pages for the Fallen World prelude short. Check those out below, and be sure to return to Paste in the coming months for more on Valiant’s upcoming launches.
