First Look: BLOODSHOT REBORN #2 – The Smash-Hit New Series from Jeff Lemire & Mico Suayan Continues on May 20th!

BSRB_001_COVER-A_SUAYANValiant is proud to present an advance preview of BLOODSHOT REBORN #2 – coming on May 20th from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Descender) and visionary storyteller Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight)! In the wake of BLOODSHOT REBORN‘s landmark debut, the smash-hit new series of the year rockets forward with a brand new chapter drawing the reformed killer once known as Bloodshot deeper into the perilous world of violence, madness, and murder he tried so hard to forget…

Ray Garrison, once known as the unstoppable killing machine called Bloodshot, must track down the impostors carrying out mass shootings in his former name. But the hunter becomes the hunted when an upstart FBI investigator and her grizzled partner believe the original Bloodshot himself to be responsible for the murders. Can Bloodshot elude the agents – and his own inner demons – long enough to take out a nanite-infused gunman?

Find out the answers in BLOODSHOT REBORN #2 – and discover why fans and critics are heralding Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan‘s new monthly series as one of the year’s most compelling, most unexpected comic book debuts:

“A subversive new take on Valiant’s resident unkillable killing machine.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Lemire, Suayan, Baron and Lanphear serve up a masterful introduction… An action-packed, psychodrama-tinged adventure.” – Comic Book Resources

“Lemire is more than the right man for the job and if you haven’t been reading Bloodshot now is certainly the right time.” – All-Comic

On May 20th, acclaimed creators Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan continue their devastating new vision of Valiant’s most unrelenting hero in BLOODSHOT REBORN #2 – featuring covers by Mico Suayan (X-Men: Legacy), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Raul Allen (RAI, Hawkeye), Rafa Sandoval (X-O MANOWAR), Marguerite Sauvage (Thor), and Ryan Lee (Uncanny Inhumans)!

Retailer Advisory: DIVINITY #1 Third Printing to Be Allocated, Fourth Printing to Arrive in May!

DIVINITY_001_COVER_FOURTHRetailers, be advised: due to unusually high reorder activity, orders of the DIVINITY #1 (of 4) THIRD PRINTING – due to arrive in stores alongside DIVINITY #3 (of 4) on April 22nd – will be allocated. To meet demand, Valiant is rushing the sold-out first issue from writer Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine back to press for the DIVINITY #1 (of 4) FOURTH PRINTING. Additionally, DIVINITY #2 (of 4) has also sold out at the distributor level and will return with the DIVINITY #2 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING. Both new printings will return to store shelves on May 27th alongside the limited series’ fourth and final chapter in DIVINITY #4 (of 4).

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent a man farther into the cosmos than anyone has gone before or since. Lost in the stars, he encountered something unknown. Something that…changed him.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity -– one who turned the scorched desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. Earth is about to meet a new god. And he’s a communist. How long can it be before the first confrontation between mankind and DIVINITY begins?

Find out here as Valiant’s most important new character debut of 2015 begins anew with the DIVINITY #1 (of 4) FOURTH PRINTING and DIVINITY #2 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING, in stores May 27th! The latest series to premier in the new VALIANT PRESTIGE format, each sold-out issue of DIVINITY comes complete with deluxe matte-laminate card stock covers, custom-designed end sheets, and exclusive back matter featuring never-before-seen notes and artwork by all-star creators Matt Kindt, Trevor Hairsine, Ryan Winn, and David Baron – all with no advertisements and a standard $3.99 cover price.

Now is the time to find out why fans and critics are calling DIVINITY one of the year’s first must-read new series and a perfect introduction to the cosmic forces of the Valiant Universe:

“High concept sci-fi executed perfectly, Divinity is one of the most exciting, ambitious titles Valiant has published.” – Wired

“Matt Kindt’s new creation is a giant leap forward for Valiant…[with] a debut that marks a creative high point for the publisher.” – The Onion/AV Club

“A true and worthwhile expansion of Valiant’s footprint, both in the publishing world and the fictional world contained within it.” – Comic Book Resources

“DIVINITY #1 pushes the scope of Valiant ever further… A beautifully designed introduction and one that plays to all of Kindt’s strengths as a writer.” – ComicBook.com

“Exceptionally cool… [A] wonderful reading experience that speaks mountains to Valiant regulars and those new to the company as a whole.” – Comic Vine

“[A] mind-bender of a first issue… DIVINITY #1 comes out of the gates strong.” – Bloody Disgusting

BOOK OF DEATH #1 – Venditti, Gill and Braithwaite Reveal Valiant’s Future in the Blockbuster Event of 2015!

So let it be written…

So let it be done…

This summer, witness the death of Ninjak…learn the final fate of Bloodshot…see the redemption of Toyo Harada…meet the next bearer of the X-O Manowar armor…herald the next generation of Valiant heroes…and witness the rise of villainous forces not yet known… We know it will be…because the Book of Geomancer tells us so!

BOD_001_COVER-A_GILL

Valiant is proud to announce BOOK OF DEATH – the epic new Valiant event of 2015! Beginning with in July with BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern), superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER, Batgirl) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice), BOOK OF DEATH continues throughout the summer with four standalone one-shots from an all-star cast of Valiant’s top talents! Colliding the next two thousand years of history against the most powerful heroes of today, the summer’s must-read comics event starts here in July as a new Geomancer emerges to build a bridge to the future of the Valiant Universe!

The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.

Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

“In the tradition of Valiant’s original RAI #0, BOOK OF DEATH is going to reveal glimpses of the future of the Valiant Universe and, with it, many of the monumental events and occurrences that our heroes will face,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Major characters will die, while others will be introduced for the very first time. The loves, the losses, and the betrayals that await our biggest characters…it all starts here. For the Geomancer, this future has already happened and, in each issue, we will see more of the events that shaped her life revealed. BOOK OF DEATH will have an immediate impact on not only the stories that follow it in 2015, but on the next decade of the Valiant Universe as well.”

Also coming in July, the future of the Valiant Universe continues with four visionary tales of present and future torn directly from the pages of the Book of the Geomancer! Each month, join an all-star cast of creators – Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, BLOODSHOT REBORN) & Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, IMPERIUM), Matt Kindt (NINJAK, RAI) & Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER, IMPERIUM) & Kano (THE DELINQUENTS), and Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, ARMOR HUNTERS) & Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS, IVAR, TIMEWALKER) – as they come aboard the summer’s monumental comics event to chronicle the ultimate fate of Valiant’s biggest heroes! From the modern day to the far future, the destinies of Bloodshot, Ninjak, the Harbinger Renegades, X-O Manowar, and more will stand revealed in four essential, standalone chapters at the epicenter of BOOK OF DEATH:

BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1

“In just a short time, I think Valiant has built a reputation for creating some of the most well-received comic book events in the industry today. HARBINGER WARS… UNITY… ARMOR HUNTERS… THE VALIANT… These are all stories have been huge hits with fans, retailers and critics alike, but BOOK OF DEATH might just be the biggest, most game-changing event we’ve attempted to date,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Much of the conversation at the Valiant creative retreats helped formalize the ideas behind BOOK OF DEATH and hammer out the colossal impact that the Eternal Warrior and new Geomancer will soon have on the landscape of the Valiant Universe. BOOK OF DEATH will be the ultimate peek at the future of the Valiant Universe and it’s only fitting that we bring as many major Valiant creators into the mix as possible.”

BOOK OF DEATH is a story that’s been in the works for a long time, and I’m looking forward to showing readers what we have in store for them,” said writer Robert Venditti. “Last summer’s ARMOR HUNTERS event was so much fun to write, and, while this story will have a much different focus and tone, our goal is to deliver the same level of action, character, and universe building. The Eternal Warrior and the Geomancer are such great high concepts to work with. We’re going to reveal exactly what it means to be the Fist and Steel of Earth and provide an epic showcase for not only the Eternal Warrior, but all of Valiant’s heroes present and future.”

The blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 begins in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR, Conan), Clayton Crain (RAI, X-Force), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT, Daredevil)! This July, join Valiant superstars Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite as they begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today, only in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)!

From New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and red-hot rising star Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight), VALIANT NEXT delivers an all-new ongoing series for Valiant’s most unrelenting hero!

Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well.
Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving headlong into the violence that nearly destroyed him.
