A special one-time offering loaded with collections of Valiant’s best-selling series and online debuts, customers purchasing the Humble Valiant Bundle can choose to benefit three vitally important charities – Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Hero Initiative, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF).

The Humble Valiant Bundle features a longbox-busting digital library of 24 graphic novels and collections, and spans all of Valiant’s most popular superhero titles – including X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong, Harbinger, Bloodshot, Quantum and Woody, and more! With a total retail value of more than $420, the Humble Valiant Bundle is the single biggest comics offering ever presented by Humble Bundle.

Featuring work by an all-star cast of top talents – including writers Joshua Dysart (Swamp Thing), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Bob Layton (Iron Man), Jim Shooter (Avengers), Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies), and Robert Venditti (Green Lantern), alongside artists Doug Braithwaite (Justice), Clayton Crain (Carnage), Cary Nord (Conan) and more – the Valiant Humble Bundle is the perfect place to discover why Valiant continues to win over fans and critics around the world with high quality storytelling and outstanding artwork.

XO_TPB_VOL_001_BY THE SWORDFans can name their price to receive the first TWO volumes of X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong, Quantum and Woody, Harbinger and Unity. Plus: get the classic Shadowman video game as an extra-added bonus!

Contribute more than the average price to get even more of Valiant’s blockbuster publishing line with the first two volumes of Bloodshot, Shadowman and Eternal Warrior – plus the first volume of Rai and Harbinger Wars!

For $15 or more, Valiant will open the vaults and unleash the entire Valiant Masters digital series, showcasing the legendary origins of one of the greatest universes in comics. Re-presenting the original adventures of Ninjak, Rai, Bloodshot, Shadowman, and H.A.R.D. Corps – plus a Humble Bundle-exclusive Valiant Masters volume of classic X-O Manowar not available in print – the Valiant Masters series celebrates Valiant’s historic legacy, and include dozens of pages of rarely seen bonus materials and special features.

“The Humble Valiant Bundle is by far one of our proudest achievements,” said Gavin Cuneo, Valiant’s CFO and Head of Strategic Development. “While this is a fantastic opportunity for readers to access the Valiant Universe, what makes this partnership so important is the support it provides to three incredible charities with crucial missions in comics and around the world. Each of the organizations – Doctors Without Borders, the Hero Initiative, and the CBLDF – serves an incredibly important cause, and finding a way to further their missions with the support of Valiant’s fans around the world was just too good to pass up.”

The Humble Valiant Bundle runs for two weeks beginning Wednesday, September 17, 2014 and ends Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 11 a.m. PDT.

HARBINGER: FAITH #0 Flies High with Joshua Dysart and Robert Gill in December!

HAR_FAITH_ZERO_COVER-A_QUINONESValiant is proud to announce HARBINGER: FAITH #0 – a brand new one-shot exploration of Valiant’s high-flying teenage Renegade and Unity’s newest team member!

Coming in December from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger, Harbinger Wars) and rising star Robert Gill (Armor Hunters: Harbinger), start reading here to discover how Harbinger’s high-spirited teenage fangirl went from the heart and soul of Peter Stanchek’s teenage Renegades to the newest member of the world’s most elite super-team – UNITY!

As Faith recuperates from the events of Armor Hunters: Harbinger, jump on board and discover the complete, never-before-revealed tale of her origin – just as she steps into the limelight for a brand new story arc beginning in November’s UNITY #12!

Her first and only boyfriend to date is a little bit of a douche, her friends are all gone, and, after her insane adventure in Mexico City, Faith Hebert is feeling a little frustrated with the direction of her life. She’s just a normal super-powered young woman in an increasingly crazy world. Here’s the story of a true innocent and a kind heart in a hard world. From the comic shop of her youth to the moment she found out that she was actually light as feather, Zephyr is the western wind. Warm and kind, she blows across us all.

“She may not be physically strong, or brilliantly tactical, but her emotional intelligence and psychological strength are unparalleled among the other Renegades,” writer Joshua Dysart told Multiversity Comics. “I think some part of her understands that her light is needed even more in a world where you can lose your friends and face down horrible swarming alien insects. I think she sees a dark and violent world all around her and instead of that corrupting her, it reinforces her. Again, there’s a hint of that in this issue, but it’s also about a question we all ask ourselves, where do we go from here?”

This is HARBINGER: FAITH #0! Featuring covers by all-star artists Joe Quinones (Wednesday Comics), Lucy Knisley (Harbinger #25), and Brian Level (Lazarus), be here this December as one of the most unique, most sincere super-heroines anywhere in comics today takes on her very first solo adventure!

And don’t miss UNITY #12 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and red-hot artist CAFU – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new story arc recruiting Faith into the ranks of Valiant’s unbreakable all-star superteam, just as they go toe-to-toe with a brand new threat known only as The United!

THE DELINQUENTS #1 is for Sellouts – Second Printing Coming in October!

DELINQ_001_COVER_SECOND PRINTINGValiant is proud to announce that THE DELINQUENTS #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the first disastrous team-up between Quantum and Woody and Archer & Armstrong – has sold out at the distributor level and will return with a brand-new second printing in stores October 1st!

You demanded it, so we delivered it! Archer & Armstrong finally meet Quantum and Woody! Written by multiple Harvey Award nominee James Asmus (Quantum and Woody) and New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) with art by heat-seeking artist Kano (Gotham Central), start reading here as Valiant’s two most ill-suited and irresponsible pairs of “heroes” go head-to-head for a cross-country rat race…with only an ass-map to guide them!

For decades, the underground society of American hobos guarded one secret with their lives – the route to hobo paradise…aka Big Rock Candy Mountain, U.S.A. Only one map leading to its mythical location was ever made…and it was tattooed on the butt cheeks of one lone hobo guardian! In the years since, it has been flayed, dried, and split into two halves. Archer & Armstrong have the left cheek, Quantum and Woody hold the right. And, now, these two halves are about to set the competing duos off on a cross-country rat race where “O” marks the spot!

Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team… Archer & Armstrong are a mismatched pair of conspiracy-busting adventurers… Together…they make a really, really bad team! Stay out of the way because, on October 1st, they’re bringing the summer’s most out-of-control joyride back to comic book stores everywhere in THE DELINQUENTS #1 SECOND PRINTING!

Praise for THE DELINQUENTS #1:

“✮✮✮✮✮…Asmus, Van Lente, Kano and Sharpe provide a perfect example of how to blend humor and action, adventure and fun.” – Comic Book Resources
“✮✮✮✮✮…James Asmus and Fred Van Lente absolutely knock this one out of the park…” – Big Comic Page
“✮✮✮✮½…The art by Kano is gritty and dirty and hilarious…just like our heroes herein.” – Bloody Disgusting
“✮✮✮✮½…What Fred Van Lente and James Asmus have cooked up here is so good, I don’t know why any other comics bothered releasing themselves this week.” – Comics Bulletin
“✮✮✮✮…You won’t find a comic like this everyday. Don’t miss out on it. And again, it has an ass map in it!” – Comic Vine

ARMOR HUNTERS Rockets into Multiple Sell-Outs, Reloads with Four New Printings Coming in September!

AH_003_COVER_SECOND-PRINTINGValiant is proud to announce that four installments of ARMOR HUNTERS – the summer’s globe-spanning, smash-hit crossover event starring X-O Manowar, Unity, Bloodshot, and more of Earth’s most formidable heroes as they defend the planet from the galaxy’s most feared, most relentless team of alien powerhouses – have sold out at the distributor level and will soon return to store shelves with new printings in September and October!

First up, on September 24th – arriving in stores alongside the action-packed final confrontation between X-O Manowar and the Armor Hunters in ARMOR HUNTERS #4 (of 4) – look for ARMOR HUNTERS #3 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (Unity); and the ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING and ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #2 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING by acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Great Pacific) and bone-breaking artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis)!

Then, on October 1st – hitting shelves alongside the storyline’s must-read one-shot epilogue in ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1 – pick up the ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger) and red-hot rising star Robert Gill (Eternal Warrior)!

Re-presenting four essential chapters of the armor-plated crossover that Comic Vine calls “an event that lives up to the hype,” it’s not too late to find out why ARMOR HUNTERS is the heat-seeking storyline that’s had fans and critics talking all summer.

“From start to finish, ARMOR HUNTERS has been nothing short of a resounding success with fans, and we’re continuing to see demand for each issue as the storyline rushes toward its must-be-seen-to-be-believed finale at the end of September,” said Publisher Fred Pierce. “The first two issues of ARMOR HUNTERS – along with UNITY #8 and X-O MANOWAR #26 – have already returned to press, and we couldn’t be more proud to now add another four titles to that list. With another month to go, ARMOR HUNTERS is already well on its way to becoming one of the most well-remembered and affecting crossovers in recent memory. This is precisely the kind of storytelling, scope, and scale that is setting Valiant apart in the industry.”

When Aric of Dacia returned to Earth with the stolen X-O Manowar armor of an alien race, he thought he finally found a weapon to guard the peace and kingdom he’d struggled so long to secure. But now, a relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the armor and all like it – have found their final target. The Armor Hunters are coming. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

Just as ARMOR HUNTERS # 4 (of 4) and ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1 hit stores, get a front row seat for the devastating consequences of the Armor Hunter’s attack in the ARMOR HUNTERS #3 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING, ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING, ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #2 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING, and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING – on sale in September and October!

When an asteroid with a fifty-fifty chance of hitting Earth is spotted hurtling toward the planet, the unlikely super-team of Quantum and Woody are drafted onto the international team of specialists tasked with stopping it! But when the duo inadvertently cause a training exercise to go horribly wrong, they manage to doom the entire planet along with the only team capable of saving it. With few options and less time, Woody decides to ditch our world and escape into another through a secret space-time rift created by his arch-nemesis – old timey clone-Frankenstein-robot Thomas Edison! (No…you shouldn’t ask.) Our Woody’s betrayal, however, leaves the door to our dimension open to THEIR counter-Woody and his own counter-asteroid…leaving two worlds in the balance as two Woodys cut a reckless rampage through the multiverse! (Yes…it’s complicated.)

QW_VALIANT-SIZE_001_VARIANT_HAWTHORNE“A giant Earth-crushing asteroid is heading this way, forcing an uneasy alliance of international and interpersonal foes to put aside differences and work together to save mankind,” writer Tim Siedell told io9.com. “Quantum and Woody join forces with Edison, as well as a North Korean superhero and a rabidly anti-Semitic, but otherwise genius, nuclear scientist. This is Earth’s hastily-assembled Dream Team (or Nightmare Team, depending on how you look at it). It’s a story so big it can’t be contained on one Earth.”

Featuring covers by Eisner Award winner Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals) and acclaimed artist Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool, Fear Agent) – plus a partially completed “Draw Your Own ‘Blank’ Cover” on virgin board stock by “Most Promising New Talent” Harvey Award nominee Pere Pérez (Archer & Armstrong) – Quantum and Woody’s first perilous voyage into the Woody-Verse might just mean the end of all mankind!

Find out who lives…who dies…and which evil doppelgänger has the best goatee…when VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 leaps into comic shops everywhere this December!

First Look: Peter Milligan and Cary Nord Usher in ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #1 – Coming in November!

EW_DOS_001_COVER-A_HITCHFrom steel comes salvation!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new three-issue mini-series chronicling the brutal and bloodied history of Valiant’s immortal champion from master storyteller Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, X-Statix) and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (X-O Manowar, Conan)!

For more than 10,000 years, the Eternal Warrior has stood on guard, protecting the Earth from all who would seek to do it harm. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. Confident in his role, the Eternal Warrior believed he had seen and survived it all…until a mysterious quest in the tenth century led him to question the very foundation of his existence. After completing another brutal mission at the behest of the Geomancers, the Earth’s undying guardian is approached with a cryptic task: to find and save a newborn child – in whose hands might rest the fate of an entire people. But when a thousand conquering Magyar invaders join the quest for the child, can history’s most expert killer be trusted to keep one precious life alive?

Swords! Savagery! Steel! Before Gilad joins Bloodshot and an all-star cast of Valiant’s greatest heroes in December for a brand-new crusade against the Immortal Enemy in THE VALIANT #1 by Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera, take up the blade and discover the roots of Earth’s undying champion in ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #1 – in stores this November!
