"DARK VAL," One-Shot
In this special one-shot featuring awesome art by FRANCIS MANAPUL (Clear, Justice League), Val reflects on her hard and sometimes merciless past in the wake of the shocking events at the conclusion of "Pedal to the Metal." But when an unlikely ally reveals a way to find Val's convoy and take them to Eos, Val must go against her every instinct in order to trust this new partner.

    The special throws a lot at you, and as Snyder is sometimes wont to do a lot of it is in expository bursts, but everything it throws at you feels rewarding and entertaining. Read Full Review

    This one-shot is definitely worth picking up for Nocterra fans. The saga has been nice and unpredictable as of late and it's nice to see the creative team still has some ways to surprise readers. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 21, 2022

    Nocterra: Val Special is a cliche story that still hits hard. Snyder and Daniel take a plot that every horror story has done but use it to show readers how Val has changed since her younger days. Manapuls art is terrific, and thats all there is to it. This is a great comic and whets the appetite for the return of Nocterra. Read Full Review
