Jody Houser, Francis Portela & Marguerite Sauvage Fly High for FAITH #1 – Coming in January from Valiant Entertainment!

FAITH_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVIC

FAITH begins! This January, Valiant’s most demanded hero steps out of the pages of HARBINGER…and into an all-new series!

As debuted today at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to announce FAITH #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of a stratospheric new limited series launching the teenage heart and soul of the Harbinger Renegades, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, into her first-ever solo adventure from rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells)!

“Faith is one of the most unique characters in comics – a sci-fi loving, Firefly-quoting fangirl that wound up standing shoulder-to-shoulder alongside some of the most powerful superheroes on Earth, who, at the end of the day, might just prove herself to be the bravest of them all,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Since she first stepped off the page in HARBINGER through HARBINGER WARS, UNITY, and ARMOR HUNTERS, fans far and wide have demanded that she be given her time to shine in the spotlight. Fortunately, Jody, Francis, and Marguerite are the perfect team to give Faith the leading role she deserves with a fast and fun-filled series that will establish her once and for all as one of Valiant’s leading lights.”

Orphaned at a young age, Faith Herbert – a psionically gifted “psiot” discovered by the Harbinger Foundation – has always aspired to greatness. But now this once ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws into her harms way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr!

But flying solo is going to be tougher than Zephyr ever thought when she uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy. Two-bit burglars and car thieves are one thing, but when the world needs a hero to stave off a full-blown extraterrestrial invasion, will Faith find herself in over her head…or ready for her biggest challenge yet?

“Faith is an especially fun character for this sort of story because of how genre savvy she is,” writer Jody Houser told Comic Book Resources. “She didn’t fall into the ‘classic costumed life’ by accident. She made a deliberate attempt to model her life after the heroes she grew up with, not because that’s just how it’s done, but because she understands the benefit of having a normal life on the side. Wanting to do great things doesn’t mean she wants to be in the spotlight 24/7.”

Featuring covers by a blockbuster line-up of comics’ top talents, including Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Marguerite Sauvage (Thor), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Kano (QUANTUM AND WOODY), Colleen Coover (Bandette), Valiant’s high-flying hero steps to the forefront of the Valiant Universe to begin a landmark new chapter this January, only in FAITH #1 (of 4) – her much-demanded solo series debut from all-star creators Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage!

The Great Destroyer, long prophesied and foreseen, comes to Earth at last. Who will survive…and what will be left of them?

New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (IMPERIUM, HARBINGER) and blockbuster artist Kano (THE DELINQUENTS) journey to the far end of the Geomancer’s BOOK OF DEATH to reveal the final, unavoidable end for two of the Valiant Universe’s most powerful foes.

Diamond Retailer Summit 2015: Valiant’s BOOK OF DEATH Reigns as Most Successful Independent Crossover Event of the Decade

BOD_TPB_COVER_GILL

With Total Sales of 200,000+ Units, Valiant’s Acclaimed Summer Crossover Achieves Major Milestone for Largest Independent Superhero Universe.

As revealed this morning at the Diamond Retailer Summit in Baltimore, MD, Valiant is proud to announce that the widely acclaimed BOOK OF DEATH event storyline has sold more than 200,000 copies and counting as of September 2015, cementing its status as the most successful crossover event of the decade from an independent publisher.

Following a record-setting debut of more than 70,000 copies for BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) in July, Valiant’s blockbuster summer event – helmed by New York York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern) and artists Robert Gill (Batgirl) and Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) – has continued to accrue widespread critical acclaim and multiple distributor sell-outs across both the core BOOK OF DEATH limited series and four standalone one-shots from an all-star cast of preeminent creative talents, that inlcudes writers Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Descender), Matt Kindt (NINJAK, Mind MGMT), Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER, Unknown Soldier), alongside artists Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), Kano (QUANTUM AND WOODY), and Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG).

“The reception to BOOK OF DEATH thus far has been astounding and the series isn’t slowing down yet,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “BOOK OF DEATH really is a landmark moment for Valiant, both as a publisher and for the characters that define our universe. From craft and story, to sales and marketing, BOOK OF DEATH has created an influx of fans new to Valiant and emboldened our long-time readers. Look out…because the story that begins here will have long-lasting ramifications in the months and years to come.”

Spanning eight issues total, BOOK OF DEATH collides the next thousand years of history with the most powerful heroes of today. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died. Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

Featuring the last stands of Valiant icons, the first appearances of all-new heroes, and tantalizing clues of future events, BOOK OF DEATH is the gateway to the next decade of the Valiant Universe and beyond. That new era officially begins on November 18th in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 by BOOK OF DEATH’s own Robert Venditti and visionary artist Raul Allen (NINJAK, Hawkeye) – the first issue of an all-new ongoing series bringing Valiant’s immortal master of war out of the pages of Valiant’s chart-topping event and into a savage new realm far removed from the world he once knew…

“Robert Venditti and Cary Nord defined the scope and fury of the Valiant Universe in 2012 in the pages of X-O MANOWAR #1. Now, Rob and Raul Allen are bringing that same passion and widescreen scope to WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR – a series that, following on in the aftermath of BOOK OF DEATH, will establish the Eternal Warrior, beyond a doubt, as a true heavyweight of the Valiant pantheon,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “The revelations that series will hold over the next year are truly unlike anything that Valiant has published before and will redefine the Eternal Warrior’s place as both a soldier and superhero.”

For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior 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.

But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he’s ever faced. Separated from his earthly environs, can history’s deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and far more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered before? Beyond Earth lies eternity…

On November 18th, step out of BOOK OF DEATH and into the farthest reaches of the Valiant Universe, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1!

Also announced at today’s Diamond Retailer Summit, the complete BOOK OF DEATH epic will be collected between two trade paperbacks in January 2016, beginning with the BOOK OF DEATH TPB – re-presenting BOOK OF DEATH #1-4 (of 4) with never-before-seen bonus materials from series artists Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite.

Shortly thereafter, also in January 2016, the publisher will debut a second volume – BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF THE VALIANT UNIVERSE TPB – collecting the four acclaimed one-shot chapters detailing the apocalyptic future that awaits Valiant’s biggest heroes from BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1, BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1, BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1, and BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF X-O MANOWAR #1.

A SOUND OF THUNDER Brings VALIANT’s SHADOWMAN to Life In TALES FROM THE DEADSIDE – A Heavy Metal Concept Album Launching September 25!

12d15d35-00df-4f31-9a2e-f8622369bb78-2Album to Debut During Baltimore Comic-Con 2015 with Live Release Party

Award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment and Washington, DC area metal band A Sound of Thunder are teaming up for “Tales from the Deadside” – an all-new concept album inspired by New Orleans’ nocturnal guardian…the voodoo-empowered hero simply known as Shadowman!

Venture into the darkest reaches of the Valiant Universe to witness the story of Jack Boniface – the latest in a long line of Shadowmen tasked with protecting our world from the forbidden supernatural realm called Deadside…and the evil machinations of Master Darque, who long ago traded his humanity to possess the dark knowledge of the haunted world beyond our own.

From Shadowman’s unearthly origin to his first brutal encounter with the arcane forces of the New Orleans night, “Tales from the Deadside” is a comics experience like none other, told across 60 minutes of spine-tingling tracks, voice narration, and soundscapes from rock n’ roll masters A Sound of Thunder!

“The story of Shadowman, his alter-ego Jack Boniface, and the many characters in his world inspired us to create what we believe is our best album to date,” said A Sound of Thunder guitarist Josh Schwartz. “We let the story lead us to places our music has never been before, combining all the elements of supernatural horror, drama, action and adventure found in the comics. Of course, everything has gone through our own unique Thunderous filter, and all the familiar ASOT elements will be there. Shadowman’s harrowing journey demanded no less!”

A runaway success on Kickstarter, “Tales from the Deadside” smashed through its initial crowdfunding campaign by more than 300 percent, raising more than $30,000. Recorded at Assembly Line Studios with RIAA platinum-awarded producer Kevin ’131′ Gutierrez (Shinedown, While Heaven Wept, Raven), the 10-track album is A Sound of Thunder‘s fifth full-length release, refining their classic blend of melodic heavy metal, rock, and prog. Since forming in 2009, the band has performed across the United States and Canada and shared the stage with notable acts such as Iced Earth, Accept, Overkill, and Kamelot. Their last album, “The Lesser Key of Solomon,” debuted as a Top 50 release on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart.

On September 25th, the many worlds of Valiant’s iconic Shadowman characters spring to life in “Tales from the Deadside” – available digitally, on CD, and vinyl! And don’t miss the band’s ground-shaking release party, kicking off during Baltimore Comic-Con 2015 at Baltimore’s own Metro Gallery on September 26th! Join A Sound of Thunder’s Legion of Thunder and a host of Shadowman fans from around the globe for a musical performance unlike any other as Shadowman’s “Tales from the Deadside” smashes down the barrier from the Valiant Universe to yours!

Plus: meet A Sound of Thunder in person during Baltimore Comic-Con 2015 at Booth A185, as the band overtakes the metro area’s biggest comic convention with band-exclusive variants of Book of Death #3 (of 4) by artist Dusan Markovic, CDs, vinyl, t-shirts, and more for sale and free autographing!

The dark protector of the New Orleans night, Shadowman is one of the most enduring heroes in comics with more than 5.3 million comics sold since the character’s debut in 1992. As the sole protector of the boundary between our world and the nightmare realm known only as Deadside, Shadowman’s mythology forms a cornerstone of the larger Valiant Universe and spawned the best-selling “Shadow Man” action-adventure gaming franchise produced by Acclaim Entertainment. The character will next appear in “Operation: Deadside” – a four-part storyline beginning in December’s Ninjak #10 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite.

Valiant New Printing Alert: Sold-Out BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 Returns with Second Printing in October!

BOD-NINJAK_001_COVER-SECONDValiant is proud to announce that BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 – an essential one-shot chapter torn from the pages of Valiant’s cataclysmic summer event – has sold out at the distributor level and will return in October with the BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 SECOND PRINTING! Following the multiple-printing and sold-out success of BOOK OF DEATH #1 and BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1, readers have declared that BOOK OF DEATH is the runaway hit of the summer!

Join the fall of the Valiant Universe here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine – the superstar creative team that brought you DIVINITY – reunite to reveal the dark future and final fate of MI-6′s most elite operative with a special standalone adventure torn from the Geomancer’s BOOK OF DEATH!

In the ruins of his mansion, Colin King hunkers down as the last living member of Unity after the Third Armor Hunt – or so he thinks. A visit from an old friend and a peace offering present the chance for Ninjak to break the cycle of death and escape the horrible fate foretold in the Book of the Geomancer. Will he betray his dead friends or will the fall of Ninjak come to pass and give rise to a very familiar future?

“Earlier this summer, BOOK OF DEATH #1 cemented itself as Valiant’s single-most successful debut of the modern era and now, after several subsequent sell-outs, we’re seeing demand from fans and retailers continue to build across each following chapter,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Each one of our creators is bringing their A-game to this event and it shows. From reviewer reaction to strong sales on the ground in stores across the country, BOOK OF DEATH has proven itself to be the highest-selling, most acclaimed event from an independent publisher in recent memory – and the best is yet to come.”

So let it be written, so let it be done… Critics are praising Ninjak’s last stand!

“Matt Kindt gives Colin King’s exit plenty of interesting moments, from robot vs. ninja battles to plummeting space real estate.” – IGN

“This story is a must-read, especially for fans of the larger Valiant Universe.” – All Comic

“Compelling…Gorgeously illustrated by Hairsine…” – Comic Book Resources

“Truly fantastic… A great standalone story that takes place far into Ninjak‘s future.” – Graphic Policy

“Imaginative…Kindt’s elderly Ninjak is a fun spin on the character.” – Newsarama

In time, even the dead may die…and, now, after multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with an all-new adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)!

Occult investigators Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives in the thrall of an epic love that few will ever have…until Hwen died tragically before his time. Now, after a perilous trip through the underworld, Shan and Hwen are reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spellbook or even touching his wife.

Their options exhausted, the death-defying Doctors Mirage are about to enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen’s solid form…and grant his ghost a second life. But, in the wrong hands, their ancient rite will become a tool of terror – and unleash a force of pure, homicidal evil that lusts for the murder of the living and the dead alike… a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!

With his resources spread thin and his time running out, Toyo Harada must strike if his plan to save the world by force will ever succeed. After a push to take more of the African continent – deposing corrupt governments and toppling extremists – Harada’s moves on the world stage were too bold to ignore. The alien agents of the Vine race, who were entrenched throughout the global power structure, have seen their opportunity to strike…and Harada now has his opportunity to break their tenuous pact of peace and take them down.

But with a specialized Vine killer among his own team – the ruthless and lethal Lord Vine-99 – will Harada be able to hold tight the grip on his monster’s leash… or will LV-99 turn on his master at last?

Valiant Presents X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0 – Coming in December from Robert Venditti & Francis Portela!

XO-TRILL_ZERO_COVER-A_JIMENEZ (1)This winter, Valiant presents its next essential zero issue…revealing the never-before-told origin of X-O MANOWAR’s unrelenting arch-enemy!

Valiant is proud to announce X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0 – a special jumping-on point for Valiant’s flagship series from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and rising star Francis Portela (Green Lantern)! This December, return to the roots of the Vine’s brutal alien empire to discover the beginnings of X-O Manowar’s dark nemesis and one of the Valiant Universe’s most formidable villains – the cold and calculating Commander Trill!

From Aric of Dacia’s escape with the X-O Manowar armor to the destruction of his own home world, pain and consequence have haunted the life of the alien general called Commander Trill. Now, on the eve of the most devastating assault yet, find out why with an essential, standalone zero issue detailing the battle-scarred life and origin of the Vine’s mightiest military leader…and an all-new prelude to X-O Manowar’s most terrifying clash of the year!

“Since the very first issue, Commander Trill has been a central piece of the X-O MANOWAR mythology and now, for the very first time, we’re going to see just how deep his influence truly runs,” said series editor Tom Brennan. “From Master Darque to Toyo Harada to the Immortal Enemy, Valiant’s antagonists are just as compelling as its heroes. Trill is no exception and his long-awaited origin story will not only reveal a tale that Robert Venditti has been building towards for years, but will also pave the way for the epic shake-ups leading into X-O MANOWAR’s milestone 50th issue in the new year.”

Featuring covers by blockbuster artists Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), and David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), be here this December as Robert Venditti and Francis Portela chronicle the beginning of Commander Trill’s shattered destiny with an all-new one-shot introduction to the many worlds – and many foes – of Valiant’s most powerful hero, only in X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0!
