After the harrowing ordeals of the past several weeks, the Renegades found themselves enjoying a perfect beachside day and a much-deserved rest. Then it all went horribly wrong. Kris Hathaway, seemingly experiencing a psychotic break and claiming to be following instructions from troubling voices inside the ocean itself, managed to violently attack Torque, bludgeoning him beyond recognition. Has a member of the Renegades murdered one of their own? And if so…why?

The shocking saga of “Perfect Day” continues as a teammate falls – and reality sets in – only in Harbinger #16, on sale September 18th!

VALIANT and KAMITE Partner For Spanish Language Publishing in Mexico

PrintValiant is proud to announce a new foreign publishing partnership with Kamite, one of Mexico’s leading publishers of comics and graphic novels, for a new line of Spanish language comic books, translating Valiant’s leading line of monthly super-hero titles.

The partnership will launch with the debut of newly translated editions of X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, and Shadowman this coming winter. More Valiant titles – including Harbinger, Archer & Armstrong, Quantum and Woody, Eternal Warrior, and Unity – will follow in 2014.

All of Valiant’s Spanish language Kamite titles will be available through Kamite’s two Mexico City comic book speciality stores, as well as via Grupo Sanborns, a major Mexican retail chain with more than 165 locations nationwide. Kamite will also host an array of Valiant-branded merchandise, produced by Cinderblock, through their online retail site.

“Valiant has quickly reestablished itself as one of the most exciting and vital publishers in the comics business today,” said Kamite CEO Miguel Ángel Lara del Valle. “We’re just over a year into the new Valiant Universe, and the timing couldn’t be better to introduce X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Shadowman, and the like to our ever-expanding and eager readership in Mexico.”

“With successful foreign language publishing efforts already underway in Brazil, Spain, France, and Italy, Mexico is a perfect next step to bring the Valiant Universe to a whole new audience,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions, and Ad Sales. “These are characters that resonate globally, and Kamite’s dedicated team and incredible supply chain across Mexico make them an ideal partner for Spanish language publishing.”

As the Mexican publisher of titles including The Walking Dead, 300, Simpsons Comics, Spawn, and more, Kamite consists of professionals with extensive experience in publishing and media throughout the realm of comics, manga and trade paperbacks. Nationally, they are among Mexico’s most important publishing houses in the sector of science fiction, entertainment, and pop culture.
