Valiant and Diamond Select Toys Unveil Ninjak/Shadowman Minimates Two-Pack – Coming Spring 2016

and Diamond Select Toys are proud to announce the all-new Ninjak/Shadowman Minimates Two-Pack – arriving in comic book stores and Toys”R”Us in spring 2016! Joining X-O Manowar and Bloodshot on Valiant’s growing roster of action-packed Minimates releases, the elite MI-6 operative Ninjak and supernatural hero Shadowman will be making their Minimates debut in this specially designed two-pack as part of Diamond Select Toys’ Comic Book Heroes Minimates Series 1!

Stepping out of the pages of Valiant’s best-selling “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” storyline – featuring Ninjak’s first-ever confrontation with Shadowman and the uncanny parallel dimension called Deadside – each Ninjak/Shadowman Minimates Two-Pack also comes complete with each heroes’ signature accessories and astounding alternate parts.

“The reaction from Valiant’s legion of fans around the world to our partnership with Diamond Select Toys has been absolutely ecstatic,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales. “Ever since the first set of Valiant Minimates hit shelves in 2015, we’ve received a near-constant stream of demands for more. Now, at long last, we’re proud to debut the brand-new Ninjak/Shadowman Minimates Two-Pack, just in time for the New Year.”

“The Valiant Universe is full of great characters, not to mention great costume designs,” said Diamond Select Toys President Chuck Terceira. “We’re excited to be able to interpret these characters and costumes in the Minimates format, and we look forward to expanding on our Valiant offerings in our new Comic Book Heroes line.”

Years ago, inexperienced MI-6 recruit Colin King set out on his first field mission, learning the basics of spycraft and developing a volatile relationship with his first handler…to tragic results. Now, Colin King is Ninjak – the world’s foremost intelligence operative, weapons expert, and master assassin. And he’s hunting the Shadow Seven – a secret cabal of shinobi masters with mysterious ties to his training and the first failed mission that changed everything…

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?

Most recently, Ninjak and Shadowman’s paths have converged for “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” – a brand-new storyline beginning in NINJAK #10 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite. Featuring the long-awaited first showdown between Colin King and Jack Boniface as they wage war in the mysterious paranormal realm called Deadside, now fans everywhere can recreate the “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” action that brought these two titans of the Valiant Universe together with the Ninjak/Shadowman Minimates Two-Pack –featuring a removable mask, mask-less hairpiece, and dual swords for Ninjak, and an unmasked head and short and long staffs for Shadowman!

Minimates, owned by Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, are two inches tall, with 14 points of articulation, and feature multiple interchangeable parts and accessories. They were first released in 2002, and have grown into the largest and most diverse line of block figures in the world.

A lethal menace has been loosed on the world and everyone – alive or dead – is in harm’s way!

Shan Fong-Mirage is married to a ghost – the late Hwen Mirage, who she herself pulled back from the brink of eternal imprisonment in the underworld. But this team of paranormal investigators has discovered that even the unliving like Hwen can be killed…and that their own research has unwittingly freed a malevolent spirit from a centuries-old enchantment. Now innocent victims – both among the living and dearly departed – are being massacred. To set this right, the Mirages need to unlock another copy of the ancient spell…and only one other paranormal collector has it. And so now the good doctors must pay a house call to an old enemy…

First Look: Valiant’s Five-Time Sold-Out Sensation Returns for DIVINITY II #1 – Coming in April!

DIVINITYII_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICThis spring…the much-anticipated follow-up to the five-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the “Best New Superhero of 2015″ is here! Don’t miss a single universe-shaking moment as the original DIVINITY creative team returns for a perfect new jumping-on point into the expansive sci-fi epic that shook the world!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY II #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new limited series continuing 2015′s groundbreaking new character debut! This April, be here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D., Mind MGMT), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), explosive inker Ryan Winn (X-O MANOWAR), and acclaimed colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN) return with a brand-new beginning for the awe-inspiring superhero odyssey that redefined the Valiant Universe!

“Almost immediately after his first appearance, DIVINITY became a major focal point in the Valiant Universe and with good reason,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “From IMPERIUM to BOOK OF DEATH, his actions have had major repercussions, but the story that Matt and Trevor have in store for DIVINITY II isn’t just a sequel—it’s the closing of the circle that began with Abram Adams’ lift-off from Earth and into the unknown. Now, the full consequences of that journey are going to be revealed as DIVINITY II reintroduces a powerful figure from the past – one that DIVINITY is going to wish stayed lost…”

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther into space than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something unknown… Something that changed them.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with seemingly limitless power at his fingertips, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never had a chance to meet.

Now, Miska, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth…but, unlike Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.

Earth is about to meet a new god. And she’s a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before DIVINITY?

“DIVINITY was a true force of nature in 2015. With a seemingly insatiable demand from fans and retailers, it’s racked up 11 red-hot printings, a slew of ‘best of ‘awards, and astronomical back-issue prices. This has been a true runaway hit in every sense of the term,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “From the beginning, the origin of DIVINITY was built to be told in two parts, and we are incredibly excited for fans everywhere to have their minds blown again as we reveal more. Each member of the original creative team––from Matt to Trevor to Ryan to David—has not just returned, but redoubled their efforts to make DIVINITY II not just a title, but a statement of purpose. Packed with action, ingenuity, and brilliantly conceptualized storytelling, you’re simply not going to find a series like this anywhere else in comics today.”

This April, mankind will bear witness to the cosmic force of creation itself as master storytellers Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine unleash a cataclysmic new chapter for the breakout new hero of the year, only in DIVINITY II #1 (of 4)! Featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Tom Muller (Wolf), Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), and Adam Gorham (DEAD DROP), DIVINITY II #1 (of 4) will also be presented in the deluxe Valiant Prestige format with an ad-free presentation featuring matte-laminate cardstock covers, custom-designed endsheets, exclusive back matter, and more.

IMPERIUM_013_COVER-A_GILLValiant is proud to present your first look inside IMPERIUM #13 – the FIRST ISSUE of “STORMBREAK,” an all-new story arc reuniting HARBINGER’s Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER WARS) and Khari Evans (Immortal Iron Fist)! On February 17th, the series named “Best Horror Comic of 2015″ by ComicsAlliance unleashes a devastating new jumping-on point as the Valiant Universe comes raging to the doorstep of Toyo Harada’s utopia…with Livewire and H.A.R.D. Corps leading the charge to unseat the world’s most powerful superhuman!

Toyo Harada will save the world…if he doesn’t doom it first. The revolutionary disruption that Harada and his team have launched – by deposing tyrants, housing refugees, and feeding the poor – has come at the expense of the world’s wealthiest nations. When the planet’s leaders have had enough, it will be decided: Toyo Harada must die. Now a crack unit of operatives will stand against Harada on the global stage…with his own former pupil Livewire taking him head-on. Meanwhile, Harada’s military lieutenant Gravedog meets his match when Charlie Palmer drops into the firefight of a lifetime…H.A.R.D. Corps vs. H.A.R.D. Corps!

On February 17th, Valiant’s heaviest hitters put Toyo Harada’s dream in the crosshairs for “STORMBREAK,” beginning in IMPERIUM #13! Featuring covers by acclaimed artists Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), CAFU (UNITY), Clayton Henry (HARBINGER), Ryan Lee (Uncanny Inhumans), and Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK), the Harvey Award-nominated team behind HARBINGER returns to lay waste to Toyo Harada’s besieged empire…and ready the world for the biggest dogfight of the New Year, only in IMPERIUM #13!
