“What I love about these events with Valiant is they grow organically…” series writer Matt Kindt: “I don’t want to be writing some big, sprawling story with no real heart to it, and it’s just about connecting different books and characters. I think the thing that attracted us all to this idea was the heart of the story and the characters driving it, and telling a good story with heart. Eric had a great idea with Livewire, and really makes it about these character moments. The big event just happens around it.”
“It’s not as much about the event as it is about spotlighting these amazing characters, and pulling back a bit and showing how the universe is shared, and the friction that comes from the sharing of it,” he added.
