Valiant to Launch First Crime Noir Title, Final Witness

Valiant Entertainment has big things in store for its readers this year, you might have seen their Valiant 2020 – The Year of Heroes campaign already across the internet. However, there are a few titles that caught our eye at the Fandomentals that we’ll be profiling over the coming months. Today we’re going to take a look at the title we’re most interested in, which happens to be Valiants first foray into crime noir, The Final Witness: A Crime-Noir Serial Killer Mystery.

While normally the fare for fans of Batman, the Question, Jessica Jones, or even Dex Parios, Valiant is entering the arena and making its main characters a mystery to be revealed, hell they’re even keeping the creators shrouded in secrecy for now. What we know for sure is this. Heather Antos is overseeing the title, and thanks to Syfy we’re told the main characters consist of four people. A police detective, an investigative journalist, an arsonist, and a new superhero “whose origin is tied to the arrival of a villain.” Final Witness is scheduled to initially be a five-part mini-series, but Valiant has plans in store for this new pocket of their expanding universe.

We’re suckers for a good noir, so we have high expectations for Final Witness. If the series is anywhere near as good as some of their other titles, such as The Life and Death of Toyo Harada, then everyone is in for a treat. Look for Final Witness to drop in early 2020.
