With apologies to the Big Two, one of the most exciting forthcoming superhero comics right now is Livewire, the first-ever ongoing series for one of the Valiant Universe’s best characters.

Helmed by writer Vita Ayala and artists Raul Allen and Patricia Martin, the first issue of that comic is set for release in December. It follows Amanda McKee, code name Livewire, through the aftermath of Harbinger Wars 2, an event that took place this summer and involved Livewire using her powers to destroy the nation’s (or maybe it was the world’s?) electrical grid, plunging everyone into a sudden power outage.

This new comic is a great mix of a character at the forefront of a publisher’s plans and a rising creative team, which in this case is Ayala (The Wilds, Submerged, Supergirl) and Raul Allen and Patricia Martin (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, Secret Weapons, Wonder Woman).

Before Livewire’s debut hits next month, though, the publisher has released a preview of the second issue. It’s exciting stuff, and you can check it out below:

As first revealed on PREVIEWSworld, Valiant is proud to reveal the first look at LIVEWIRE #2 before the highly anticipated title’s debut issue goes on sale – we’re that excited about this series!

Livewire has spent years as an integral supporting character within the Valiant Universe, but now the fan-favorite former member of Unity will shine in her very own solo series! Taking place after the action-packed events in HARBINGER WARS 2, Livewire is now the most wanted woman in the world and she’s being targeted by a mysterious enemy. Rising star Vita Ayala (The Wilds) joins forces with fan-favorite art team Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín (SECRET WEAPONS, WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) to delve deep into the powerful technopath’s psyche and tell a tale that serves as a great jumping-on point!

In the gripping preview for the second issue, Livewire comes face to face with her brutal foe in a tense encounter, but what sinister plans do they have for her? Feast your eyes on the new pages below!
