First Look: X-O Manowar Smashes the Stalinverse in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – Coming in January!

DIV3-ARIC_001_COVER-A_CRAINThis January, in the wake of the Stalinverse’s stealth takeover of the world we once knew, Valiant’s leading legend is about to become the CCCP’s greatest weapon!

Valiant is proud to present your first look at DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – the next essential special ripped from the pages of this winter’s visionary comics event! On January 18th, join acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall) and explosive artist CAFU (Rai) as they present the tragic new origin of the hero we once celebrated as X-O Manowar…and reveal his righteous place in the Stalinverse’s twisted new world order! In 2012, a man from the stars crash-landed into the Soviet-ruled territory of Romania. Wielding an extraterrestrial weapon of immense power, the Visigoth warrior known as Aric soon found himself conscripted by the military forces of the global Communist regime – a force that he now serves without question. With a past as mysterious as his power, Aric, Son of the Revolution now fights to protect the worldwide Soviet Union from threats foreign and domestic…and himself from the dark past that now threatens to undercut his very humanity itself!

From bustling urban centers to the collective farms of the countryside, men, women, and children alike all idolize the same hero of the global Soviet republic: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION! Returned to Earth from the stars with the ultimate nuclear deterrent – the indestructible X-O Manowar armor – the champion of socialism has singlehandedly consolidated the state’s military and political superiority at home and abroad. But when a surprise attack from the Deadside shines an untoward light on the modern-day Soviet Union’s darkest secret, will Aric pursue his mission…or uphold justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

On January 18th, X-O Manowar explodes out of the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE and into his own armor-annihilating adventure through Valiant’s brutal new status quo! A star-shattering tale of sins, secrets, and tragedy await the global hero of the worldwide Communist state as Joe Harris and CAFU seize the Stalinverse, only in DIVINTIY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Diego Bernard (X-O Manowar), CAFU (Imperium), Trevor Hairsine (Divinity II), and Kano (Daredevil)!

But first… It all begins on December 21st as the Iron Curtain rises over a once-free world in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary)!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

Then: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with the first of four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) on December 28th as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1!

Valiant Unleashes the Powerhouse Debut of 2017 with X-O MANOWAR #1 – An Epic New Ongoing Series Coming in March!

XO2017_001_COVER-A_LAROSAVisionary Writer Matt Kindt to Lead Rotating Cast of Superstar Talents with Artists Tomas Giorello, Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, and Mico Suayan Across Series’ First Year and Beyond!

WAR IS COMING!

As revealed today at Entertainment Weekly, Valiant is proud to announce the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of AN EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and an all-star arsenal of the most formidable visual storytellers in comics today – including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn), Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) – that together will span the series’ first year in 2017 and beyond!

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon starts here on March 22nd, 2017 with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

“Matt Kindt is a genius-level creator and, with X-O MANOWAR, he’s tapping into the essential core of our most iconic character to deliver something more ambitious, more far-reaching, and more fantastic than anything Valiant has ever attempted before,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “This year marks X-O Manowar’s 25th anniversary, but, instead of falling back into nostalgia, we’re taking Aric into uncharted territory – with five of comics’ greatest artistic talents at the helm, no less. This is a premier team that has some truly stunning turns in store – and, when X-O Manowar emerges on the other side, he will be looking at a very different and much larger Valiant Universe.”

In the wake of “SOLDIER”’s staggering assault in issues #1-3, X-O MANOWAR then continues in 2017 and beyond as a superstar cast of Valiant’s most acclaimed artistic talents chart Aric’s path from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH for a vicious, year-long journey of bone and bloodshed born from the battlefields of a herculean alien empire:

“X-O MANOWAR #1 is not just the biggest book Valiant will be publishing in 2017; it might just be the biggest book we’ve ever published, period,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “With five sets of creators working concurrently across more than a year’s worth of the series, we’re building what will be the bedrock for Valiant’s next phase. But we’re not content to rest there. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling a simply massive slate of surprises that are going to add extra fuel to X-O MANOWAR’s fire in comics, video games, and even film. 2017 will be the year of X-O MANOWAR not just for Valiant, but for the entire comics industry.”

Since debuting in 1992, X-O Manowar has endured as one of the best-selling and most popular comic book creations of the past 25 years, with almost 10 million comics sold and contributions from a seminal roster of creative luminaries including current Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada (Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil), former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter (Avengers), and comics legends Barry Windsor-Smith (Conan the Barbarian, Uncanny X-Men) and Bob Layton (Iron Man). After returning to the forefront of Valiant’s publishing line with a chart-topping, multiple sold-out series by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Flash) and Eisner Award winner Cary Nord (Conan, Star Wars) in 2012, X-O Manowar anchored the resurgence of the Valiant Universe and went onto become one of the best-selling and longest running superhero series of the modern era, earning a multitude of awards and critical accolades from the industry’s most prestigious outlets in the process.

The biggest Valiant debut of all time begins on March 22nd in X-O MANOWAR #1! Join master storytellers Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello as they prepare for war alongside Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, and Mico Suayan in the pages of the year’s most essential ongoing series debut – featuring covers by Valiant-exclusive superstar Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), blockbuster artist Kenneth Rocafort (Inhumans vs. X-Men), Harvey Award-nominated artist Mico Suayan (Thor), Eisner Award-nominated artist J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), and rising star Monica Palosz (Divinity III: Stalinverse)!

Real! Live! Cats! Seattle’s Comics Dungeon to Host Signing with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY Stars Fawkes & Nak in December!

BSUSA_003_CAT-COSPLAY-COVERAcross the millennia-spanning arc of human history, mankind has celebrated many triumphs. But, from the pyramids to the moon landing, they all now pale in comparison to the landmark achievement that Valiant has bequeathed unto civilization…with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS!

To mark this most momentous occasion, Seattle’s Comics Dungeon will be officiating the December release of this all-new line of shelf covers with a live, in-person signing featuring stars (and real-life felines) Fawkes and Nak, alongside Freyu – creator of the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog and trusted human – on Saturday, December 17th!

Arriving in stores this December, bear witness as ordinary, household feline companions are transformed into the world’s most valiant heroes for a fur-bulous new line of shelf photo covers spanning 10 best-selling series! From teenage martial arts master Archer to reality-warping cosmonaut Divinity to sky-soaring sensation Faith and MI-6 super-spy Ninjak, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVER captures a furried friend pouncing into action as one of Valiant’s leading heroes inside a custom-built costume – tailor-made and photographed by the minds behind the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog.

Since being unveiled to a world unready to the absorb the full spectrum of their glory, Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS have gone from comic book sensation to full-blown viral phenomenon through all the corners of the internet (including the sketchy ones), who are hailing the publisher’s latest initiative as the greatest contribution to human-feline relations since the lint roller:

“This may be the best thing to happen in the history of comics.” – Book Riot

“The greatest variant covers of all time…” – Gizmodo/io9

“Possibly the best comics news ever…” – Vulture

“THIS. THIS IS EVERYTHING… There will only be the time BEFORE the Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers and the time AFTER the Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers. It’s a new, modern world of comics. What a time to be alive.” – The Beat

“Exactly as amazing as it sounds.” – ComicsAlliance

“If there’s one thing the internet has taught us, it’s that cats make everything better.” – Comic Book Resources

“Surprisingly enough, Cat-Armstrong is not drunk.” – GameSpot

“Cat cosplay covers that also go to a good cause? That makes this fun kitty collaboration even better.” – The Mary Sue

A portion of the proceeds from all VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS sold will benefit the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition (BARC), a New York-based non-profit that operates a beloved, no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. BARC’s mission is to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals – with quality food, shelter, medical attention, and the love they deserve – and to find permanent loving homes for them.

Designed by the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog – the gold standard of the “cat cosplay” genre that also boasts a legion of fans and followers across Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook – Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS mark their first officially sponsored collaboration between CCFV and a comic book publisher or entertainment company.

Red rebellion!

Across continents, the world bows to the oppressive and ruthless might of the global Russian regime. Former Russian intelligence officer Colin King, however, knows that this reality is not his own. With the truth on his side, Colin King is about to mount a resistance with aid of the world’s most feared undesirables…and release the classified asset known as Abram Adams from a prison guarded by the CCCP’s greatest super powers. But when Myshka — the divinely powered enforcer of the Soviet Union — comes to crush their uprising, will the man once known as Ninjak live long enough to discover the sinister reason that the Stalinverse came to be?

The truth behind Valiant’s shocking new reality will finally be revealed as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY II) pull back the iron curtain and reveal the insidious mastermind who will stop at nothing to preserve this twisted world order!
