Marvel Comics launching ‘The Mighty Valkyries’ #1 April 2021

New allies, new enemies, and new adventures for Jane Foster begin in The Mighty Valkyries #1 this April.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed they aren’t done with Jane Foster and the Valkyries by any means. Continue out of King in Black: Return of the Valkyries, Jason Aaron, Torunn Grønbekk, and artist Mattia de Iulis will kick off The Mighty Valkyries #1Set for release in April 2021.

So what is The Mighty Valkyries about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Jane Foster believed she was the only Valkyrie left – but the fight against Knull, the King in Black, proved her wrong. Now the Valkyries must redefine their roles in a changing world – and Asgard’s not going to make it easy. When Loki comes to Jane with rumors of a beast stalking the souls of Midgard, she leaps into action along with the mysterious new Valkyrie who just made her highly-anticipated debut in KING IN BLACK: RETURN OF THE VALKYRIES #1. But does Jane’s new ally have other priorities? Years ago, this ancient warrior made a promise to a woman she loved. And now, it’s time for her to follow through.

“This story is big, cosmic, and mythical,” Grønbekk said in a press release ent to AIPT. “The wolves are let loose, an old god is back, and life is finding its way into Hel. People are dying on Midgard, and even Loki has a part to play (which is rarely a good sign for, well, anyone but Loki). Though our Valkyries begin the journey in two different galaxies, their paths soon meet. But there are twists and turns in their way, and nothing and no-one is quite what they seem. They will have to ask the right questions and make hard choices before they can unravel the mystery they both find themselves in.”

New York, NY— January 12, 2021 — After their cataclysmic showdown with Knull in KING IN BLACK: RETURN OF THE VALKYRIES, Asgard’s greatest warriors will embark on another glorious quest in a brand-new series. Launching in April, THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES will be crafted by the returning all-star creative team of writers Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk and artist Mattia de Iulis.

Jane Foster believed she was the only Valkyrie left – but the fight against Knull, the King in Black, proved her wrong. Now the Valkyries must redefine their roles in a changing world – and Asgard’s not going to make it easy. When Loki comes to Jane with rumors of a beast stalking the souls of Midgard, she leaps into action along with the mysterious new Valkyrie who just made her highly-anticipated debut in KING IN BLACK: RETURN OF THE VALKYRIES #1. But does Jane’s new ally have other priorities? Years ago, this ancient warrior made a promise to a woman she loved. And now, it’s time for her to follow through.

Here’s what Grønbekk had to say about the new series:

“This story is big, cosmic, and mythical. The wolves are let loose, an old god is back, and life is finding its way into Hel. People are dying on Midgard, and even Loki has a part to play (which is rarely a good sign for, well, anyone but Loki). Though our Valkyries begin the journey in two different galaxies, their paths soon meet. But there are twists and turns in their way, and nothing and no-one is quite what they seem. They will have to ask the right questions and make hard choices before they can unravel the mystery they both find themselves in.

“I could say that it’s a story about ancient magic, dying worlds, talking horses, and forgotten forces, and while that would all be true, it’s also about finding back to life — after loss, illness, stagnation, and imprisonment.

“And, look, I’ve never been more excited about a book. Writing Jane is always a joy, and the newest Valkyrie (or the oldest, if you will!) is proving herself a bad-ass delight. Mattia De lulis is taking every opportunity to show that he’s not only a brilliant artist but a masterful storyteller, and I’m in awe of the work he’s doing on these pages. This book feels very much like a labor of love, and I’m so thrilled we finally get to share it with the world!”

New destinies and life-changing battles await when THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES #1 hits stands in April! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
