Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Shadowman #0 from Harvey Award-nominated writer Justin Jordan (The Legend of Luther Strode) and an all-star cast of visionary artists including Roberto De La Torre (Daredevil), Mico Suayan (Harbinger), Neil Edwards (Fantastic Four) and Lewis LaRosa (PunisherMAX)! For hundreds of years, the Shadowmen have guarded our world from the nightmare realm known as the Deadside and its sadistic necromancer, Master Darque. But who is Master Darque? And what is the root of his otherworldly evil?

Now, for the first time anywhere, the answer to these questions and more will finally be revealed. Journey back to the plantations of antebellum Louisiana to meet the man once called Nicodemo Darque and discover how a depraved life drenched in dust, blood, and bone transformed him into a menace that would one day threaten the whole of the Valiant Universe and all life as we know it.

Before the discovery of the Deadside, before Jack Boniface, before the rise of the Valiant Universe, go back to the beginning to witness the first coming of Master Darque on May 1st in Shadowman #0 – now featuring a wraparound standard cover by Eisner Award-winning artist Dave Johnson!

VALIANT Partners with Brazil’s HQM EDITORA for Foreign Language Publishing

HQM_XO_001Valiant is proud to announce a partnership with HQM Editora, Brazil’s premier publisher of Portuguese language comic books and graphic novels, to bring the Valiant Universe to a new generation of fans in South America.

Beginning this May, HQM Editora will launch a new, dedicated line of Valiant releases with the first serialized translations of three of Valiant’s best-selling ongoing series in the pages of X-O Manowar Magazine – an oversized monthly anthology re-presenting X-O Manowar by Robert Venditti and Cary Nord; Harbinger by Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans; and Bloodshot by Duane Swierczynski and Manuel Garcia.

Compiling one issue of each series together in HQM’s oversized format, the release of X-O Manowar Magazine #1 will mark the first time Valiant’s monthly titles have been published in a foreign language since the publisher’s much acclaimed relaunch.

After the conclusion of each series’ first story arc, Harbinger and Bloodshot will spin-off into a second monthly title, Universo Valiant Apresenta (Valiant Universe Presents), spotlighting the lead-up to Valiant’s first crossover event, Harbinger Wars. Trade paperback collections of each translated series are slated for release later in 2013.

“The Valiant team and HQM have been working very closely since we started planning the line. We love the idea of helping Valiant spread worldwide,” said Carlos Costa, HQM Editora’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief. “Valiant is hot, the type of thing HQM looks for when searching for comics to publish. They’re perfect for a new audience and also offer something different for super-hero fans.”

HQM_XO_002“Valiant has some of the best creators and their stories are explosive. There’s no strings attached and that will attract people,” said HQM Editora Executive Director Artur Tavares.

HQM Editora began publishing in 2006 with the first Portuguese language editions of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead and Invincible and, in the years since, has produced Portuguese translations of a distinguished array of titles, including Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean’s Violent Cases, David Lloyd’s Kickback, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, Terry Moore’s Strangers in Paradise, and Dave Steven’s The Rocketeer.

“Valiant has incredible worldwide recognition and a legion of fans globally,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions, and Ad Sales. “This is a perfect first step toward giving those fans the series they’ve been clamoring for, and the first of many international publishing initiatives that Valiant plans to unveil in the coming year.”

ARCHER & ARMSTRONG VOL. 2: WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR TPB
Written by FRED VAN LENTE
Art & Cover by EMANUELA LUPACCHINO

No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the undying Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he’s a master of strategy and weaponry, an unrelenting force of nature capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now – after years apart – the Eternal Warrior has a new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect. And, like it or not, Valiant’s history-smashing adventure duo are about to feel the brunt of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.

Collecting ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5-9 by New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and critically acclaimed artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor), the second volume of the series that IGN calls “hilarious and action packed” slams into high gear with a savage manhunt straight through the heart of the Valiant Universe.
