Sai Original Character Design Art & Creator Notes by Andres Guinaldo.

Sai first appeared in Rai #11 in several panels with dialog, and it was clear that more would later be revealed regarding her history and connection to Rai in the world of 4001 A.D.; however, it was not until Rai #14 that we learned that Sai was indeed New Japan's defender (Rai) before Aboto (who was also her lover and the father of her son, who also first appeared in Rai #11...), who preceded the current Rai that the series is actually about.

Anyhow, Sai is (at the time of this writing) still very much alive, and likely to be seen again in the Valiant Universe.

The design and appearance of Sai used in Rai #14 and after came from Guinaldo, as seen below.

Britannia #2 (2016) Original Cover Art framed with both original preliminary cover sketch concepts by Adam Gorham.

Initially, I expected this cover to be either the regular or a variant cover for Britannia #1 as it was one of the earliest Britannia images released to the public via YouTube video by Valiant Entertainment. It was of course used for Britannia #2 instead. There are a number of reasons this may have occurred, however, I suspect that the visual similarities between this cover and Lewis LaRosa's cover for Britannia #1 were too close, and led to the decision to use one of the covers for issue #1, and the other for issue #2.

Bloodshot #1 (2012) original cover art by artist Mico Suayan.

A while back, this HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT original art randomly appeared for sale on eBay from well known Seller Peter Woronecki. Immediately, we took the discussion off of eBay and were able to negotiate a private deal.

I actually flipped a coin to help me decide between the Bloodshot #1 (2012) cover, and the Harbinger #1 (2012) cover. Harbinger #1 actually WON that toss, and I ignored the results and just made the offer for Bloodshot #1 lol! :lol:
