Valiant Teams With ComicsPRO to Bring WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR and BOOK OF DEATH to Local Comic Shop Day!

WRATH_001_LCSD_COVER_FOWLERValiant Entertainment is proud to announce that it is partnering with ComicsPRO for Local Comic Shop Day, a brand-new event celebrating comic book shops and their important contributions to the comic book industry. On Saturday, November 28th, head to your local comics retailer for two exclusive Valiant offerings – WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 and BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1 LCSD Exclusive Variants – available only at participating Local Comic Shop Day retailers!

First, Local Comic Shop Day begins with the WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 LCSD Exclusive Variant – kicking off Valiant’s biggest series launch of the fall with an all-new, never-before-seen cover by acclaimed artist Tom Fowler (QUANTUM AND WOODY, Venom)!

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 faced before. 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?

This November, the Valiant Universe forges a major new milestone as Earth’s Fist and Steel embarks on a daring crusade to the far end of existence with WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 Exclusive Variant – the FIRST ISSUE of a new ongoing series by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and breakout artist Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye)!

Then, Valiant’s Local Comic Shop Day celebration continues with the BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1 LCSD EXCLUSIVE VARIANT! Featuring a brand-new cover by red-hot rising star Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH, Batgirl) and strictly limited to 1,000 copies, Valiant’s blockbuster summer event continues here with a glimpse into the future of the Valiant Universe…and the revelation of the long-awaited final reckoning between the world’s two most powerful psiots…Peter Stanchek and Toyo Harada!

Join New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and visionary artist Kano (Gotham Central) for a journey to the far end of the Geomancer’s BOOK OF DEATH to reveal the final, unavoidable end for Valiant’s most devastating foes in the BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1 LCSD Exclusive Variant – available only on Local Comic Shop Day!

“Local comic book retailers are the bedrock of the comic book industry and continue to be the single most important means of connecting with fans around the world,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “It is Valiant’s distinct pleasure to join ComicsPRO as an inaugural sponsor of the very first Local Comic Shop Day and to contribute to the continued success of their ongoing and vital mission.”

Local Comic Shop Day is a new event designed to call attention to locally owned independent comic book specialty stores, celebrating their unique and vital role in being the primary fire-starters of pop culture.The first Local Comic Shop Day will be Saturday, November 28th, two days after Thanksgiving and coinciding with the day American Express has labeled “Small Business Saturday.”

Participating retailers will sell exclusive releases from participating publishers. Some items offered will be limited editions, others will be “first day of release” items debuting on LCSD, released on that Saturday – outside of the traditional Wednesday routine. The goal of Local Comic Shop Day is to jump start the holiday buying season for storefront comics specialty retailers while also giving comics fans more of what they most desire.

Retailer and publisher participation information is available from ComicsPRO Executive Director Marco Davanzo at marco@comicspro.org. Information is also posted at www.localcomicshopday.com

Valiant Summons THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 in December with Djurdjevic, Wada, Evans, Skelly, and More!

MIRAGE-SEC_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICThe Return of Valiant’s Harvey Award-Nominated Sensation to Also Feature Exclusive 1:100 “Valiant Linewide Variant” by Eisner Award Winner Colleen Coover

In time, even the dead may die…

Following a first-of-its-kind announcement live from Twitter headquarters in July, Valiant is proud to unveil complete details for THE DEATH-DEFYING DR.MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the astonishing new adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)!

After garnering a bevy of nominations at 2015 Harvey Awards – including “Best Writer“, “Best Artist“, and “Most Promising New Talent” –the creators behind one of 2014′s most acclaimed new series debuts is back to give Valiant’s husband-and-wife paranormal investigation unit their most dangerous assignment yet: to protect our world from an unrelenting force hellbent on the annihilation of all souls…living and dead alike!

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 have been reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spell-book 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!

Featuring covers from a world-class cast of leading talents – including Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Roberto de la Torre (Age of Apocalypse), Khari Evans (HARBINGER), and Katie Skelly (Nurse Nurse) – THE DEATH-DEFYING DR.

SHADOWMAN Strikes Again in “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” – A Four-Part Event Storyline Beginning in NINJAK #10 by Matt Kindt & Doug Braithwaite!

NINJAK_010_COVER-A_BRAITHWAITEAs revealed today at Entertainment Weekly, Valiant is proud to announce “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” – a special four-part event storyline beginning this December in NINJAK #10! Jump on board here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) – the chart-topping creative team behind the sold-out debut of UNITY – reunite to collide NINJAK with SHADOWMAN for a terrifying descent into an unknown and uncharted plane of existence!

As an extra-added bonus, the first 40-page chapter of “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” will also feature enhanced GLOW-IN-THE-DARK shelf covers by artists Doug Braithwaite (UNITY), Tom Muller (Wolf), and Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY)! Then look for new GLOW-IN-THE-DARK covers from Valiant’s top talents each month as “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” continues in the pages of NINJAK’s acclaimed ongoing series!

“I’ve been excited to bring Shadowman back for a while… He’s got a pretty dark past and some murky motivations that help him live up to his name,” said “OPERATION: DEADSIDEwriter Matt Kindt told Entertainment Weekly. “As a writer, it’s some pretty juicy stuff to sink your teeth into. I also think that reader anticipation and curiosity over the character is another thing that really makes him attractive… So picking up a character like that and catching up with where he is and what he’s done since is going to be pretty dark…and pretty fun.”

“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing Shadowman back to the forefront and thrilled to be doing it with Matt, Doug and Ninjak,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “The fans have been screaming for Shadowman to return. The last time they saw him we left them with an emotional cliffhanger. We’ve been slowly laying the seeds for his big return and I can’t think of a cooler, more exciting way to reveal what he’s been up to.”

In 2015, a covert military intelligence unit sent a team of 20 agents and one special operative into a parallel dimension. Only one came back.

The purpose of their mission was classified. Now, out of options, MI-6 has recruited their most elite operative – codname: NINJAK – to follow the doomed mission’s sole witness – the mysterious occult specialist PUNK MAMBO – back into the dimension called Deadside…and bring her missing teammates home.

What will they find there? And who will be waiting for them?

“Over the past year, Matt has built an intrigue-laden master plan for Ninjak, and many of the threads he’s set up – the secret of Ninjak’s training, the revelation of the Shadow Seven’s identities, and the fallout of ‘THE SHADOW WARS‘ – will converge in ‘OPERATION: DEADSIDE,’” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “At the heart of it, ‘OPERATION: DEADSIDE‘ is the story of a mission gone horribly wrong and what happens when someone who under any other circumstances would be considered a master of his element finds himself washed up – figuratively and literally – in a new environment that quickly outmatches the abilities of his mind and body. This is a tale of survival…and Ninjak is going to have to adapt quickly to what Deadside has in store to discover what secrets it has been hiding all along.”

This December, master storytellers Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite bring SHADOWMAN roaring back from the darkness – and into the crosshairs of MI-6′s deadliest master assassin – in “OPERATION: DEADSIDE“, a horrifying new sci-fi action epic beginning in NINJAK #10!

Plus: also beginning in the 40-page first issue of “OPERATION: DEADSIDE“, Matt Kindt begins an all-new chapter of NINJAK’s never-before-told origin in “THE LOST FILES“, featuring explosive artwork by Juan José Ryp (Clone)! And don’t miss all of the GLOW-IN-THE-DARK shelf covers for “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” from artists Doug Braithwaite, Tom Muller, and Trevor Hairsine – on shelves everywhere for the first chapter of Valiant’s next can’t-miss milestone, only in NINJAK #10!

Visit Entertainment Weekly now for a full-length “OPERATION: DEADSIDE” Q&A with writer Matt Kindt, artist Doug Braithwaite, Valiant Editor-in Chief Warren Simons, and Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.
