The Valiant Universe has a new hero in their ranks!

A hero who willingly fights to guide the world towards a better tomorrow and his name is Doctor Tomorrow! In the future, a final showdown between the world’s heroes and a mysterious foe named Hadrian. The heroes fail, the universe decays and Doctor Tomorrow has only one option, to save the universe, he must go to the past. Where does Doctor Tomorrow come from? Who in Doctor Tomorrow’s past has the key to save the future?

I tend to enjoy Valiant titles from time to time, but Arbona has made a really great first impression with this new character. I enjoy that Arbona wastes no time getting straight into the story, showcasing the kind of character that Doctor Tomorrow is. He obviously exudes some golden age wonder and sensibilities which I feel is a nice welcomed addition to the drastically different roster of characters within the Valiant Universe. Arbona does a fantastic job at setting up the premise, and the cast of characters who are very, likable to begin with. The story is well-paced, and the conflict that Doctor Tomorrow is faced with makes it a strong first issue that promises great things for the following.

Jim Towe’s artwork is splendid to look at from the first bombastic page to the last. His style exudes a sense of fun, action, and wonder while maintaining that heroic golden age appeal. Coupled with Diego Rodriguez’s colors, and Clayton Cowels lettering, the art team accomplishes their job at delivering a stunning debut to Valiant’s newest character. It is a really enjoyable new title from Valiant’s vault and is worth picking up for new comic book day.
