WATCH NOW: Valiant Debuts Animated Video Trailer for HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 – On Sale November 16th!

Valiant is proud to reveal your first look at the fully animated video trailer for HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES by multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (Transmetroplitan, The Boys) with special guests Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA) in stores on November 16th!

Already sold out of its 46,000-copy print run at the distributor level, the most important Valiant series of the year arrives tomorrow with an explosive 40-page first issue packed with all-new content and an all-new jumping-on point for Valiant’s most subversive team of superpowered teenage upstarts! After kicking off with an all-new introduction to the world of Harbinger with artwork by Raul Allen, meet the Valiant Universe’s next major adversary with the first appearance of Alexander Solomon – the titular “renegade” that will forever change the fate and ultimate future of Peter Stanchek, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and the rest of Valiant’s high-powered superteam – in a never-before-seen prologue with artwork by Juan Jose Ryp!

Anyone you know could become a psionically powered “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. Your neighbor. Your boss. Your best friend. Your kids.

Six months ago, a secret team of renegade whistleblowers leaked the existence of these extraordinarily dangerous individuals to a stunned world. Today, all across the country, crude, DIY psiot activation attempts have left hundreds brain damaged…or worse. The emergence of a new psiot in a community often leads to riots and mass violence. Gun sales are through the roof.

America is terrified of what could happen next.

With this revolutionary upheaval now in motion, Kris Hathaway, John “Torque” Torkelson, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and Peter Stanchek are about to discover their calling. Together, the Harbinger Renegades are moving from town to town, building their ranks, and subverting authority one mind at a time…and setting out to prove once and for all that behind their power, there has always been a purpose.

On November 16th, join the fight as Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson usher in a major new era in Valiant history – and begin the countdown to HARBINGER WARS 2 – only in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1! Featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Wolverine), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl), the colossal comics debut of 2016 starts right here with a perilous new vision of the future that awaits Valiant’s number-one superteam!

Valiant’s Stalinverse Curses DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN AND THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – Coming in February!

DIV3-SHADOWMAN_001_COVER-A_CRAINThis winter, freedom fights from the shadows…

Valiant is proud to announce DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN & THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – an essential standalone tale from the Stalinverse from rising star Scott Bryan Wilson (Batman Annual) and Valiant-exclusive superstar Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH)!

The year is 2017…and, in the Communist-occupied streets of New York City, oppression and violence lurk in every shadow. But when the global Soviet Union targets the Statue of Liberty for destruction, there will be Hell to pay…and Jack Boniface has come to collect. As Shadowman, Jack will resurrect the sacred power of his people…and raise an army of the dead to meet the Russians where they stand. But even Shadowman’s revenant freedom force will find something to fear when the brutal Komandar Bloodshot and unstoppable Aric, Son of the Revolution arrive to crush liberty’s last sparks of life…and put down the dead forever!

“This is the story of New York City actively resisting the Soviets… In the opening pages of the issue, the Soviets make a huge symbolic gesture that Shadowman and the rest of the population of New York don’t take too kindly to, which is what kicks the story off,” writer Scott Bryan Wilson told Multiversity Comics. “It’s here where we explore some of Shadowman’s backstory in the Stalinverse, including what got him out of New Orleans and what got him in New York.”

To save the devastated and oppressed island of New York, Jack Boniface might just have to annihilate it first – by leading an army of Deadside-spawned monstrosities onto the streets to fight the Soviets’ super-powered shock troops wherever they stand. But freedom fighters like the one they call Shadowman seldom get the happy ending they deserve…

On February 8th, darkness falls over America’s last bastion of freedom! Out of the shadows, a new kind of hero will rise as Scott Bryan Wilson and Robert Gill summon the Deadside in DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN & THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – featuring covers from Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Marco Rudy (Uncanny X-Men), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY II) and Kano (Daredevil)!

But first: It all begins on December 21st as the Iron Curtain rises over a once-free world in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O MANOWAR) and master colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Planetary)!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

Then: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with the first of four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) on December 28th as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1!

Next, on January 18th, join the cause of Soviet righteousness as Valiant’s leading legend – the unstoppable X-O Manowar – becomes the supreme fighting force of the CCCP in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 from acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall, The X-Files: Season 10) and Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)!

Look for more top-secret DIVINITY III one-shots detailing the redacted history of the Soviet Union’s most notorious patriots, agitators, and outcasts as the Stalinverse rewrites the Valiant Universe all winter long!

At the border between civilization and the magic-laden lands beyond, Rome’s first detective is haunted by violence and visions of dark forces that defy all sense…

Antonius Axia’s disturbing investigation in the frontier colony of Britannia deepens…and with each disturbing new clue he uncovers, the farther his mind sinks into disarray! Connecting the clues behind the grisly rumors of horror in the empire’s northernmost reach, Antonius must gain an ally as dangerous as the darkness that now surrounds him. But who is this mysterious new partner, and will she lead Antonius toward the bright light of truth and salvation…or into the cold flame of eternal damnation?

Sense falls away to seduction as comics legend Peter Milligan (Shade, The Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (NINJAK) march Valiant’s latest magnum opus toward its most insidious chapter yet!

With Valiant’s X-O Manowar on your side, you’ll stand a better chance than ever at leveling your Hunter and fighting against the Invaders from the Underworld to achieve peace in Bellia!

Then, in the wake of X-O Manowar’s sword-wielding debut, look for new Valiant characters to be added to the best-selling GUARDIAN HUNTER: SUPER BRAWL RPG throughout November!

Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales. “X-O Manowar and Shadowman have a long history in gaming, and GUARDIAN HUNTER: SUPER BRAWL RPG is a fantastic collaboration that is capturing Valiant’s characters in a way that they’ve never been seen before and delivering them to a passionate new audience.”

X-O MANOWAR

Born into battle, Aric of Dacia – heir to the throne of the Visigoth Empire – never knew peace. Raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire in fifth-century Europe, Aric’s entire existence was spent fighting a never-ending insurgency against history’s most brutal empire…until a far more terrifying enemy revealed itself and changed his destiny forever. Abducted by a brutal race of extraterrestrials known as the Vine, Aric was forced into slavery on an alien world. Torn from his family, his people and his nation, he spent years plotting his escape…until the day came that he was able to seize a weapon of incalculable destruction – a sentient suit of alien armor – and become X-O Manowar!

SHADOWMAN

There are a million dreams in the Big Easy. But now its worst nightmare is about to come true. As the forces of darkness prepare to claim New Orleans as their own, Jack Boniface must embrace the legacy he was born to uphold. As Shadowman, Jack is about to become the only thing that stands between his city and an army of unspeakable monstrosities from beyond the night. But is the mantle of Shadowman a blessing or a curse? And what is the true cost of his otherworldly power?

ETERNAL WARRIOR

Across ten millennia and a thousand battlefields, Gilad Anni-Padda has shaped history at the end of his sword. He’s razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, no one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the unrelenting Eternal Warrior.

Valiant’s HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 Posts Advance Sell-Out of 46,000 Print Run, Immediately Returns to Press

HR_001_SECOND-PRINTING_COVER_ROBERTSONRetailers to Receive Bonus Second Printing of Valiant’s Blockbuster Debut in Stores Alongside First

More than a week before it hits stores, one of the fall’s most anticipated first issues is already on track to become one of the biggest comic book debuts of 2016 from any independent publisher!

Valiant is proud to announce that HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES by multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (Transmetroplitan, The Boys) – has sold out of its complete 46,000 copy print run at the distributor level in advance of its November 16th street date and will immediately return to store shelves with the HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 SECOND PRINTING.

Hot on the heels of the news that HARBINGER RENEGADE’s oversized, 40-page first issue will begin the march towards Valiant’s HARBINGER WARS 2 mega-event in 2018, retailer and fan demand for the return of the publisher’s high-powered teenage superteam has even managed to outstrip the issue previously certified as the year’s best-selling independent superhero debut – the ongoing debut of Faith “Zephyr” Herbert in July’s FAITH #1.

“Make no mistake: HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 might just be the most important first issue of Valiant’s releases in 2016,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “What happens here will set the tone not just for HARBINGER WARS 2 over the coming year, but also introduce some of the most substantial changes the Valiant Universe has faced yet. Who wins, who loses, who lives, who dies… HARBINGER RENEGADE is going to have a colossal impact on what the future holds.”

To make sure adequate supplies are available in stores nationwide, participating retailers will receive bonus copies of the HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 SECOND PRINTING in 50% proportion to their orders of the HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 first printing A cover by Darick Robertson. Further copies of the HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 SECOND PRINTING have also been made available for order through Diamond code: SEP168553.

Packed with 40 explosive pages of all-new content, HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 kicks off with an all-new introduction to the world of Harbinger with artwork by Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR)! Then, meet the Valiant Universe’s next major adversary with the first appearance of Alexander Solomon – the titular “renegade” that will forever change the fate and ultimate future of Peter Stanchek, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and the rest of Valiant’s upstart superteam – in a never-before-seen prologue with artwork by Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA)!

At the height of his power, Toyo Harada, CEO of one of the world’s largest corporations and the most powerful psiot on the planet, discovered, recruited and activated Alexander Solomon. Gifted with the power of probability analysis, Solomon is able to predict future events with astonishing accuracy. This ability made him incredibly valuable to Harada. Working together over time, the two grew as close as father and son. Eventually, Solomon would rise to become one of Harada’s most trusted deputies and a member of his inner council…until Harada discovered that his protege had secretly been exploring an agenda in stark disobedience to his wishes. Betrayed, Harada sent a strike team to neutralize Solomon. That strike team’s failure sent Solomon underground…until now…

And, soon, Alexander Solomon’s renegade vision for the future of humanity will put him on a one-way collision course with Valiant’s number-one team of super-powered upstarts: the Harbinger Renegades!

On November 16th, be there as Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson usher in a major new era in Valiant history – and begin the countdown to HARBINGER WARS 2 – only in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1! Featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Wolverine), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl), the colossal comics debut of 2016 starts right here with a perilous new vision of the future that awaits Valiant’s number-one superteam!

Set for publication in 2018, further details on the HARBINGER WARS 2 event are currently classified. However, fans can get their first look at Valiant’s biggest and most ambitious event to date in HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 – the exclusive, limited-edition Valiant zero issue that can only be obtained by redeeming mail-away coupons included in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1-4! Featuring a can’t-miss prelude to the landmark comic event of 2018, readers simply have to clip and ship their detachable coupons to receive this one-of-a-kind, advance chapter torn from the future of the Valiant Universe! Look for full participation guidelines for redeeming your copy of HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 in the pages of HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 – on sale November 16th in comic shops everywhere.

Read the First Half of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 – Kindt & Hairsine’s Event-Level Epic Raises the Iron Curtain on December 21st!

DIVINITY-III_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICValiant is proud to present an extended advance preview of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s startling, event-level blockbuster from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O MANOWAR) and master colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Planetary)!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

On December 21st, witness a disturbing new vision of the world as it now stands! One where the Cold War was won long ago and a global Soviet empire now rules the world… Where the Iron Curtain extends across oceans and continents, subsuming freedom and liberty in its wake… And where the Russian communist super-state rules the world not only with an iron fist, but with ultimate power far beyond the comprehension of mortal men.

Featuring DIVINITY’s Abram Adams alongside the first appearances of darkly reimagined versions of X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, HARBINGER RENEGADE’s Peter Stanchek, Ninjak, Shadowman, and several surprise guests, the definitive Valiant epic of 2016 starts here!

“Divinity’s place in the Valiant Universe is about to fundamentally reshape the world as we thought we knew it, and the ramifications of this series will play out for months and years after the final page,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Not only is the story fully in continuity, it will leave several major new, key elements and characters in place that will be essential to Valiant’s plans going forward. We’re incredibly excited for readers to finally see all the twists, turns and surprises that DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE has in store!”

On December 21st, Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine pull back the Iron Curtain to reveal the red dawn that engulfed a world, only in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – presented in the deluxe VALIANT PRESTIGE format and featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Tom Muller (Zero), Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), and Adam Gorham (The Violent)!

Plus: the Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4), beginning in December! First, find out how Valiant’s blood-stained icon marched to the forefront of the global Soviet war machine on December 28th as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1!

Then, on January 18th, join the cause of Soviet righteousness as Valiant’s leading legend – the unstoppable X-O Manowar – becomes the supreme fighting force of the CCCP in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 from acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall, The X-Files: Season 10) and Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)!

Look for more top-secret DIVINITY III one-shots detailing the redacted history of the Soviet Union’s most notorious patriots, agitators, and outcasts as the Stalinverse rewrites the Valiant Universe all winter long!

Introduced as Valiant’s first major new creation of the modern era, DIVINITY debuted as one of the best-selling and most acclaimed superhero series of 2015, garnering 11 sold-out printings and earning awards and accolades from The A.V. Club, Bloody Disgusting, Paste, Salon, Wired, and dozens more worldwide. In 2016, the same year that DIVINITY accrued seven Harvey Award nominations, Kindt & Hairsine’s surreal superhero creation returned to the top of the charts and critics’ lists with DIVINITY II – a sold-out sequel further solidifying Abram Adams’ impact on the Valiant Universe.

First Look: Valiant Reveals HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 Cover by Clayton Crain – An Exclusive Prelude to the Devastating Comics Event of 2018!

HW2_000_COVER_CRAINAs revealed today at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to present your first look at the cover to HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 – an exclusive prelude to Valiant’s seismic level event coming in 2018! Now, for the first time anywhere, glimpse the coming conflagration that awaits Valiant’s most powerful heroes here in the exclusive HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 cover by superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D., X-Force)!

Available only by redeeming four mail-away coupons included in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1-4, HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 will lay the foundation for the bloodied future that has been foreseen by the world’s most high-powered threat: Toyo Harada’s former protege and the Renegade’s newest adversary, Alexander Solomon, who is set to make his chilling first appearance in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 on November 16th! But there are those that even Solomon fears… And, as the march toward HARBINGER WARS 2 builds over the coming year, a new and terrible force will reveal itself on the heroes of the Valiant Universe!

“Solomon isn’t just going to irrevocably change the lives of of the Harbinger Renegades team, but the entire Valiant Universe. Everything that Solomon does in this series will spill into the Valiant Universe and, little by little, those actions are going to build into Harbinger Wars 2, our massive story for 2018,” Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons told Comic Book Resources. “The first “Harbinger Wars,” Valiant’s inaugural crossover event, brought about enormous change for the Valiant Universe and its superheroes, so you can bet that “Harbinger Wars 2” will have monumental ramifications for our characters.”

“The arrival of Alexander Solomon is going to create a whole new dynamic for [HARBINGER RENEGADE]. He’s a force who can go toe-to-toe with both Toyo Harada and Pete Stanchek,” added Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “We’re incredibly excited to watch fans learn what he is planning… We’ve already teased HARBINGER WARS 2 in 2018 and I think many people are assuming that Solomon is the driving force behind that story. He plays a major role in the events leading up to and including HARBINGER WARS 2, but I think the fans will be interested to learn that he will not, in fact, be the central figure behind that event.”

At the height of his power, Toyo Harada, CEO of one of the world’s largest corporations and the most powerful psiot on the planet, discovered, recruited and activated Alexander Solomon. Gifted with the power of probability analysis, Solomon is able to predict future events with astonishing accuracy. This ability made him incredibly valuable to Harada. Working together over time, the two grew as close as father and son. Eventually, Solomon would rise to become one of Harada’s most trusted deputies and a member of his inner council…until Harada discovered that his protege had secretly been exploring an agenda in stark disobedience to his wishes. Betrayed, Harada sent a strike team to neutralize Solomon. That strike team’s failure sent Solomon underground…until now…

And, soon, Alexander Solomon’s renegade vision for the future of humanity will put him on a one-way collision course with Valiant’s number-one team of super-powered upstarts in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the fall’s biggest new ongoing series from multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan)!

Packed with 40 explosive pages of all-new content, HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 kicks off with an all-new introduction to the world of Harbinger with artwork by Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR)! Then, meet the Valiant Universe’s next major adversary with the first appearance of Alexander Solomon – the titular “renegade” that will forever change the fate and ultimate future of Peter Stanchek, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and the rest of Valiant’s upstart superteam – in the first of four prologues with artwork by Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA) spanning HARBINGER RENEGADE’s first four issues!

On November 16th, be there as Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson usher in a major new era in Valiant history with AN ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT – and begin the countdown to HARBINGER WARS 2 – only in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1! Featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl), the colossal comics debut of 2016 starts right here with a perilous new vision of the future that awaits Valiant’s number-one superteam!

Set for publication in 2018, further details on the HARBINGER WARS 2 event are currently classified. However, fans can get their first look at Valiant’s biggest and most ambitious event to date in HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 – the exclusive, limited-edition Valiant zero issue that can only be obtained by redeeming mail-away coupons included in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1-4! Featuring a can’t-miss prelude to the landmark comic event of 2018, readers simply have to clip and ship their detachable coupons to receive this one-of-a-kind, advance chapter torn from the future of the Valiant Universe!

Valiant Promotes Josh Johns to Director of Digital Media & Development

VALIANT_JOHNSValiant today named Josh Johns to the position of Director of Digital Media and Development. A key member of the company through multiple departments since Valiant’s relaunch in 2012, Johns joined the company as Assistant Editor in 2011 before being tapped to spearhead Valiant’s digital media development and subsequently being promoted to his previous position as Associate Director of Digital Media and Development in 2015.

Johns’ new title reflects his contributions to Valiant’s growth and expansion, which most recently culminated in the creation of VALIANT DIGITAL – a new division of Valiant Entertainment committed to producing scripted original content in live action, animation, and emerging media, created specifically for the digital arena. The first project from will be NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE – a brutal, first-of-its-kind, live-action digital series set to debut in late 2017. As Johns continues to extend Valiant’s reach across social and digital media, VALIANT DIGITAL is the next strategic evolution of Valiant’s long-term plan to expand the ranks of its already sizable fanbase around the world.

“With new projects and opportunities emerging in the realms of film, television, gaming, and licensing, Valiant is pioneering as a multimedia entertainment company,” said Valiant Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo. “As future digital projects bring Valiant’s award-winning superheroes to new platforms and audiences, Josh will play an important leadership role in their development.”

Following his success on Valiant’s editorial team, Johns was tapped with spearheading Valiant’s social and digital media development. Since the transition, Johns developed Valiant’s social media presence into one of the most robust and interactive out of any independent comics publisher, assisted in the creation of VALIANT DIGITAL, and developed strategic partnerships with companies including Twitter, Twitch, Bat in the Sun Productions, and more.

Originally founded in 1989, Valiant Entertainment is one of the most successful publishers in the history of the comic book medium with more than 80 million units sold and the third largest library of superhero characters in comics. In 2012, Valiant roared back to the fore with four new titles released under the banner of “The Summer of Valiant” – a relaunch that quickly established itself as the biggest debut of a new comic book publisher in more than a decade. Beginning with X-O MANOWAR #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord, which ranked as the year’s best-selling new series from any independent publisher, Valiant has consistently produced some of the highest selling and most critically accoladed comic titles anywhere in the industry. During the same period, the resurgent Valiant was also awarded a coveted Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year after just seven months of publishing, marking the fastest time that any new publisher had been named to one of comics’ highest honors.

After successfully revitalizing the largest independent superhero universe in comics, Valiant expanded its publishing roster with a successful slate of new titles, characters, and concepts, beginning with 2013′s UNITY #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite – an issue that was recognized as the biggest independent comics launch in more than five years. Also in 2013, Valiant released HARBINGER WARS #1 – the beginning of Valiant’s first inter-title crossover event, which in turn inspired a five-film plan for Valiant’s BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER franchises as feature films at Sony Pictures.

“Valiant is on the cutting edge of what a comics publisher can do in digital media. For several years, Josh’s ambition and innovative eye have exposed the company to an entirely new audiences, while still keeping us closer than ever to our dedicated fanbase,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “In his new role, Josh’s passion and dedication will continue to open up new opportunities, projects, and partnerships dedicated to creating new fans and readers of Valiant.”

Johns’ experience prior to Valiant includes Marvel Entertainment and Gaijin Studios. He holds a B.A. from the University of Georgia.
