Jane Foster is set to reunite the Valkyries this January to take on Knull’s army in King in Black: Return of the Valkyries, and Marvel has given fans a sneak peek at the variant cover from Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau featuring the original Valkyrie, Brunnhilde, as she readies herself for battle. Take a look at the cover artwork here…
“To match the epic, dark, horrific madness that is King in Black, we’re bringing the Valkyries into uncharted territory, leading up to a battle only they can fight. This is going to be a spectacular adventure, one I can’t wait for you all to read,” said writer Torunn Grønbekk, who teams with co-writer Jason Aaron and artist Nina Vakueva on the tale. “I’m also tremendously excited to work with Nina on this book. The script is filled with weird and terrifying stuff, and she’s taking it in strides — her work is mindblowing!”
Together with Dani Moonstar, Hildegarde, and a brand-new mysterious Valkyrie, Jane Foster will prove that the Valkyries are amongst the greatest warriors in the Marvel Universe in an epic battle that will take readers to the afterlife and beyond!
King in Black: Return of the Valkyries #1 goes on sale on January 6th.
