The Mighty Valkyries by Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk will bring together Loki and the newest Valkyrie, Jane Foster.
This April, Loki and Jane Foster will team up for a new adventure across the realms.
Marvel announced the limited-run The Mighty Valkyries, written by Torunn Grønbekk along with Jason Aaron, who’s spent years crafting the many tales of Asgard. The series will be illustrated by Mattia De Iulis, who also designed the cover for the first of five issues. Check it out below along with the synopsis for the new title:
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.

“This story is big, cosmic, and mythical,” said Grønbekk. “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.
As the synopsis and cover tease, the new series will bring together numerous Asgardian characters, and Grønbekk couldn’t be more excited. “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.”
The Mighty Valkyries #1, written by Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk and illustrated by Mattia De Iulis, goes on sale this April from Marvel Comics.
