NYCC 2015: Valiant and CGC Team for VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT SERIES – A Fun-Filled New Line of Reproduction Covers “Encasing” Your Favorite Heroes in 2016!

VALIANTxCGC_PROMO_finalAs revealed today at New York Comic-Con 2015, Valiant Entertainment and the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) are proud to announce an all-new, first-of-its-kind collaboration…the VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT SERIES!

Beginning in January 2016 and continuing throughout the year, Valiant’s most high-profile new releases will debut with VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANTS – the first in a fun-filled new line of shelf covers spotlighting the heroes of the Valiant Universe in printed reproductions of CGC’s trademark grading cases…and capturing their thoughts in the process! Featuring the artwork of New York Times best-selling creator and Valiant superstar Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, HARBINGER WARS), each VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT will feature an ink-on-paper reproduction of a CGC “slab” with a different Valiant hero preserved for posterity!

“Everyone at Valiant is a huge fan of CGC, and this collaboration, frankly, was too much fun to pass up,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “We’re always looking for outside-the-box ideas to catch the eye of new readers, and believe us when we say that each of these covers is going to come loaded with detail by the time they hit shelves. From the credits to the grades assigned to each title and even a bit of fourth wall-breaking dialogue, everyone involved is simply having a ball bringing these covers to life, and Clayton Henry is outdoing himself with each and every one.”

“CGC is always looking for new and innovative ways to work with publishers in the industry. Valiant’s approach to incorporate our product and service into comic books themselves presented a wonderful opportunity for us to reach fans in a new way,” said CGC Director of Operations Harshen Patel.

Beginning with the debut of the FAITH #1 (of 4) VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT in stores January 2016, each VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT will be available for retailers to order in unlimited quantities and will be made available at Valiant’s standard suggested retail price.

NYCC 2015: Valiant Unveils New SHADOWMAN Design, First Interior Pages from OPERATION: DEADSIDE – Beginning in NINJAK #10 by Matt Kindt & Doug Braithwaite!

NINJAK_010_DESIGN_SHADOWMAN_Artwork by Clayton HenryAs revealed today at New York Comic-Con 2015, Valiant is proud to debut the first look inside OPERATION: DEADSIDE – a terrifying in-series event beginning in NINJAK #10 from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS)! On December 9th, jump on board one of Valiant’s most acclaimed series here as Ninjak descends into an unknown and uncharted plane of existence to recover a lost MI-6 expedition team…only to find himself face-to-face with the mysterious hero called Shadowman!

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?

Also unveiled today, Valiant has revealed the much-anticipated new design for Shadowman – the fallen hero at the epicenter of MI-6′s lost expedition into Deadside – by fan-favorite artist Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS). Unseen for more than a year, OPERATION: DEADSIDE will be the first step towards Shadowman’s long-awaited return to the Valiant Universe…but also presents a new series of challenges for the wayward guardian once tasked with protecting humanity from the horrors of Deadside’s nightmare realm.

“OPERATION: DEADSIDE is the first installment of an epic plan for Shadowman that we’ve been crafting behind the scenes for more than a year, and Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite have built one hell of a story to do it justice,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “But it isn’t a horror story per se. In the vein of the best sci-fi action blockbusters like Aliens and The Abyss, OPERATION: DEADSIDE is an intense tale of humans pushed to the limits against an unimaginable foe at the edge of existence itself.”

Featuring glow-in-the-dark shelf shelf covers on each issue of the four-part storyline, OPERATION: DEADSIDE begins in NINJAK #10 with covers by all-star artists Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), Tom Muller (Wolf), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), and Dave Johnson (100 Bullets)! On December 9th, don’t miss a moment of 2015′s milestone turning point for the Valiant Universe as 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 – only in OPERATION: DEADSIDE!

To find out more about OPERATION: DEADSIDE, join an all-star panel of Valiant creators and staff – including writer Matt Kindt and artist Doug Braithwaite – at New York Comic-Con 2015 on Saturday, October 10th at 5:15 pm ET for 25 YEARS OF VALIANT: BOOK OF DEATH AND BEYOND, featuring even more news and announcements live from NYCC 2015!

NYCC 2015: Valiant’s Archer & Armstrong Strike Back for A&A #1 from Rafer Roberts & David Lafuente – A New Ongoing Series Coming in March 2016!

A&A_001_COVER-A_LAFUENTESuperstar Artist David Lafuente Signs as Valiant’s Latest Exclusive Artist for Launch of Publisher’s Next Tentpole Monthly Series

As revealed today at New York Comic-Con 2015, Valiant is proud to announce A&A #1 – AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES for the Valiant Universe’s premier pair of history-smashing adventurers…the amazing ARCHER & ARMSTRONG! Written by rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm, Carpool Buddies of Doom) with art by superstar artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man, New Mutants), Valiant’s next flagship series starts here in March 2016 as Archer & Armstrong begin a senses-shattering trip to unlock the secrets of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel…recover a lost bottle of history’s finest whiskey…and square off with an all-new adversary three millennia in the making!

In anticipation of Archer & Armstrong’s upcoming assault on the Valiant Universe, artist David Lafuente has signed on as Valiant’s next exclusive artist for the launch of A&A #1. A veteran of many high-profile series for Marvel and DC, including a lengthy and crucially acclaimed run on Ultimate Spider-Man with writer Brian Michael Bendis, Lafuente joins a growing and formidable stable of exclusive creators at Valiant that also includes artists Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR), Doug Braithwaite (NINJAK), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and more.

“Archer & Armstrong are two of the most beloved characters not just in the Valiant library, but in all of comics period. But instead of being intimidated by the brilliant creators that preceded them – Barry Windsor-Smith, Jim Shooter, Bob Layton, Fred Van Lente, Clayton Henry, and Pere Perez, just to name a few – Rafer Roberts and David Lafuente are bringing a vital new energy to A&A that is unlike anything you’ve seen before,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “This series is frantically action packed, hilarious yet heartbreaking, and absolutely gorgeous to look at, all at the same time. Rafer and David truly are a Valiant dream team and we can’t wait to share what they have in store.”

“Since he first made his Valiant debut with a short story in X-O MANOWAR #25, we’ve been huge fans of Rafer Roberts and, with A&A, he’s tapped into a brilliant high concept that is quintessentially Archer & Armstrong. Make no mistake: Rafer will be a major up-and-coming creator to watch in 2016,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Joining him is the always incredible David Lafuente – one of the most gifted artists in the industry and a phenomenal collaborator to launch A&A in a big, big way. Having David join Valiant exclusively is incredibly exciting and his work on A&A might just be his best to date.”

Meet Armstrong: Since the ancient city of Ur, this immortal adventurer has spent the last 7,000 years drinking and carousing his way through history alongside some of the greatest merrymakers the world has ever known.

Meet Archer: A sheltered teenage martial arts master and expert marksman that was raised for a single purpose – to kill the devil incarnate. Little did he know that this undying evil was actually Armstrong (he’s actually a pretty good guy…once you get to know him) and, since hitting the road together, the two have become great friends and even better partners.

Now: Archer is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet – a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It’s like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there…and he doesn’t exactly have a maid service.)

Imprisoned in Armstrong’s satchel for centuries, Bacchus now commands a legion of monsters, goblins and golems bent on escaping back into the world of man and enacting revenge on their captor… Can Archer single-handedly combat the godly embodiment of intoxication himself – and rescue his best buddy – without becoming lost amongst Armstrong’s endless repository of bizarre artifacts and historical oddities in the process?

Take two aspirin and call us in the morning…because the all-new Archer & Armstrong’s first adventure is going to give the rest of the Valiant Universe a splitting hangover headache when their debut story arc, “IN THE BAG“, kicks off with a bang in A&A #1 – coming in March from all-star creators Rafer Roberts and David Lafuente!

Originally launched by legendary comics creators Barry Windsor-Smith, Jim Shooter and Bob Layton, Archer & Armstrong first appeared in 1992 and quickly became one of the most successful comic book franchises in history, selling more than 4.5 million copies worldwide. With a devoted following that stretches around the globe, Ain’t It Cool News has called Archer & Armstrong “the best buddy team book of all time,” adding that “not since Batman & Robin has a more important duo hit the comic world.”

In 2012, Valiant debuted a new Archer & Armstrong series by New York Times best-selling creators Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry to an immediate worldwide sell-out and rave reviews. Over the course of its 27-issue run, the series earned numerous awards and accolades and was repeatedly named or nominated as one of the best series of the year by outlets including Bloody Disgusting, Comic Book Resources, Crave Online, and IGN. Most recently, Archer & Armstrong crossed paths with Valiant’s mismatched pair of super-powered crime fighters, Quantum and Woody, for THE DELINQUENTS – a critically acclaimed, Harvey Award-nominated crossover  – and played a pivotal role in Valiant’s THE VALIANT event series.

Valiant also recently announced that it has partnered with Sean Daniel, producer of The Mummy franchise, Midnight Run and Dazed and Confused, for an ARCHER & ARMSTRONG feature film and funded a script from writer BenDavid Grabinski.

A&A #1 will arrive in March 2016 with covers by David Lafuente, Kano, and more to be announced at a later date.

NYCC 2015: Jeff Lemire & Lewis LaRosa Leap Forward for THE ANALOG MAN in BLOODSHOT REBORN #10 – Coming in January!

BSRB_010_COVER-A_LAROSAIn 2016…Bloodshot kicks off the New Year with a mind-bending comic book event that must be seen to be believed!

As revealed today in advance of New York Comic-Con 2015, Valiant is proud to announce THE ANALOG MAN – a new four-part bombshell beginning in BLOODSHOT REBORN #10 from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Extraordinary X-Men) and blockbuster artist Lewis LaRosa (The Punisher)! This January, Valiant’s smash-hit ongoing series leaps forward 30 years into the future to reveal a world where Bloodshot is no longer the height of technological achievement…and the heroes of the Valiant Universe have given way to a ravaged and inhospitable wasteland…

Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic no-man’s land and the once unstoppable killing machine known as Bloodshot has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot’s taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life – Magic – and protecting a group of stragglers who’ve weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement’s survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Universe!

“Bloodshot has found some peace at last. Or at least he thinks he has,” writer Jeff Lemire told io9. “And then, of course, I’m going to rip that all away from the poor guy and send him on an adventure like none he’s ever had before…[and] it looks amazing. Lewis LaRosa is doing career-defining work. Wait until you see it! Monster trucks, Shadowmen, Ninjak, old Bloodshot. He nails it all.”

THE ANALOG MAN will also mark the first full-length story arc in nearly a decade from acclaimed artist Lewis LaRosa – a penciller renowned for his incredibly lifelike characters, intricate detail and dynamic storytelling. Noted for his acclaimed runs on The Punisher, Immortal Iron Fist, Amazing Spider-Man and more, LaRosa is one of Valiant’s most prolific cover artists, having previously contributed to hit series including BLOODSHOT, NINJAK, UNITY, X-O MANOWAR and many others. THE ANALOG MAN will mark his first complete storyline for Valiant Entertainment.

“Over the coming year, BLOODSHOT REBORN is going to be building towards a critical moment that has widespread implications for all of Valiant’s biggest heroes. That road begins in THE ANALOG MAN – a widescreen action epic that is every bit as searing and intensely electrifying as a full-blown summer blockbuster,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief, Warren Simons. “Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa are firing on all cylinders and outdoing themselves with each new issue that comes in. Simply put, this is one of the most formidable creative teams anywhere in comics.”

This January, jump forward into the gasoline-soaked future of the Valiant Universe when Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa kick THE ANALOG MAN into gear with an all-new jumping-on point for Project Rising Spirit’s state-of-the-art soldier! Featuring covers from a murderer’s row of the biggest talents in comics – including Larosa, Ryan Sook (Wednesday Comics), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), Tula Lotay (Supreme: Blue Rose), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man) and Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth) – the pivotal next chapter of Bloodshot’s devastating path to redemption starts here, only in BLOODSHOT REBORN #10To find out more about THE ANALOG MAN, join an all-star panel of Valiant creators and staff at New York Comic-Con 2015 on Saturday, October 10th at 5:15 pm ET for the 25 YEARS OF VALIANT: BOOK OF DEATH AND BEYOND panel presentation, featuring even more news and announcements live from NYCC 2015!

Valiant Entertainment and Quarantine Studio are proud to announce the BLOODSHOT BY DAVID AJA 1/6 SCALE LIMITED STATUE – the first-ever officially licensed Valiant statue! Based on the artwork of multiple Eisner Award-winning artist David Aja (Hawkeye, Immortal Iron Fist), this imposing, cold-cast resin statue recreates Aja’s iconic cover for BLOODSHOT #1 (2012) and stands tall at nearly 15 colossal inches.

Manufactured in cold-cast resin for maximum quality, this milestone collectible comes riddled with detail from the base of Bloodshot’s boots to the top of his assault rifle and will be produced in a limited edition of just 300 statues worldwide. Locked and loaded with twin side arms, a katana sword, and an assault rifle, Valiant’s nanite-enhanced commando is ready for any deadly mission right here, only with the BLOODSHOT BY DAVID AJA 1/6 SCALE LIMITED STATUE!

Brown, President of Consumer Products, Promotions, and Ad Sales for Valiant Entertainment. “Quarantine Studio has poured an incredible amount of time, talent and detail into giving Valiant’s very first statue release the jaw-dropping debut that Bloodshot deserves. From top to bottom, this is a beautiful realization of one of Valiant’s most enduring characters and a gloriously stunning interpretation of David Aja’s vision.”

Brought back from the dead and infused with cutting-edge nanotechnology by private security contractor Project Rising Spirit, Bloodshot is a nearly unstoppable killing machine equipped with enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing. Created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton in 1992, Bloodshot is one of the most successful new comic book characters of the past two decades with more than 100 issues published and lifetime sales of more than 7 million copies in multiple languages around the world. After returning with a sold-out new series in 2012, Bloodshot’s latest chapter began in the pages of BLOODSHOT REBORN – a new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire and artists Mico Suayan and Butch Guice.

Most recently, Valiant announced that it partnered with Sony Pictures and Original Film to bring two of the publisher’s most acclaimed superhero franchises – BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER – to the big screen over the course of five feature films that will culminate with the shared universe crossover film, HARBINGER WARS. BLOODSHOT, arriving in theaters in 2017, will kick off the five-picture plan leading to HARBINGER WARS and will be directed by David Leitch & Chad Stahelski (John Wick). Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe of Original Film (The Fast and the Furious franchise) and Valiant Entertainment will produce the film.

First Look: WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – Read Six Lettered Pages of Valiant’s Blockbuster New Ongoing Series by Robert Venditti & Raul Allen!


This November, out of BOOK OF DEATH…Valiant’s immortal master of war battles a colossal new threat unlike anything we’ve ever seen him face before!

Valiant is proud to present the first lettered preview of WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and breakout artist Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye)! On November 18th, Valiant’s next tentpole series launches Earth’s Fist and Steel into unrelenting odyssey to the far end of existence…and forges a major new milestone for history’s most legendary soldier!

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…

“There are lots of immortal characters in comics and pop culture, but the way I’m approaching the character is a different take on that,” series writer Robert Venditti told “What gets you out of bed in the morning? For him to get out of the grave every time and be immortal again, he has to be an eternal optimist. For a character like that to have seen everything he’s seen and to still be optimistic and to still believe that there’s more beauty than ugliness in the world, that the war can eventually be won? That’s something that I believe myself. I believe we’re inherently good.”

On November 18th, in the aftermath of the decade’s most successful independent crossover event, all-star creators Robert Venditti and Raul Allen drag Gilad Anni-Padda, Earth’s First and Steel, away from the world he was sworn to protect and into the farthest reaches of the Valiant Universe, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Raul Allen (NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Marcos Martin (The Private Eye), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT)!
