First Look: Valiant’s FAITH #1 Flies into the Spotlight at People, Seventeen, MTV, Mashable and More!

FAITH_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICValiant is proud to present the first look inside FAITH #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the stratospheric new limited series from rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells)! Featuring the breakout star of HARBINGER in her first-ever solo adventure, Valiant’s high-flying, high-spirited super-heroine is already stealing the spotlight with mainstream recognition by People Magazine, The Washington Post, MTV, Seventeen Magazine, Mashable, Mic, and many more…months ahead of FAITH #1 (of 4)’s January 27th debut!

“I’ve been hearing from women who are in their 20s and 30s and 40s who have been reading comics for decades who have never seen a woman on the cover of a comic that looks like them,” series writer Jody Houser told People. “And I think [Faith] makes people feel like they’re welcome in comics, and that this medium is for them, when, maybe they’ve always loved comics but they haven’t felt welcome before is a huge thing.”

Orphaned at a young age, Faith Herbert – a psionically gifted “psiot” discovered by the Harbinger Foundation – has always aspired to greatness. But now this once ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws into her harms way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr!

But flying solo is going to be tougher than Zephyr ever thought when she uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy. Two-bit burglars and car thieves are one thing, but when the world needs a hero to stave off a full-blown extraterrestrial invasion, will Faith find herself in over her head…or ready for her biggest challenge yet?

Do you have what it takes to #FLYLIKEFAITH? Find out on January 27th as the all-star team of Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage begin a landmark new chapter for the Valiant Universe’s newest up-and-coming superstar, right here in FAITH #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Marguerite Sauvage (Thor), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Kano (QUANTUM AND WOODY), and Colleen Coover (Bandette)!

HARBINGER’s Joshua Dysart & Khari Evans Re-Team for “STORMBREAK” – A Four-Part Firefight Beginning in IMPERIUM #13!

IMPERIUM_013_COVER-A_GILLAs revealed on Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to announce “STORMBREAK” – a four-part jumping-on point and crucial new milestone for the Valiant Universe beginning in IMPERIUM #13! Reuniting the acclaimed creative team behind HARBINGER, jump on board here with a brand-new story arc as New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER WARS) and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans (Immortal Iron Fist) re-team for an essential new chapter of the series that will leave Valiant’s most notorious villain changed forever! Toyo Harada’s war for utopia is about to come to a brutal boiling point…and now two of the Valiant Universe’s most formidable forces – UNITY’s former team leader and psiot technopath, Livewire, and Project Rising Spirit’s tech-augmented strike force, the H.A.R.D. Corps – are about to the lead the front line of a no-holds-barred attack on Harada’s revolutionary team of monsters and malcontents!

“IMPERIUM is one of the most provocative, most daring, and most cerebral series anywhere in comics today,” said Editor Alejandro Arbona. “Joshua Dysart’s team of anti-heroes and ideologues has made IMPERIUM a title that is as disturbing as it is action-packed. Now, with Khari Evans coming aboard to deliver the same dynamic storytelling that made HARBINGER a milestone chapter in Valiant history, STORMBREAK is going to raise IMPERIUM’s already colossal stakes even higher. Without a doubt, the return of Livewire and H.A.R.D. Corps to Toyo Harada’s world is going to have widespread ramifications for the political landscape of the Valiant Universe.”

Toyo Harada will save the world…if he doesn’t doom it first. The revolutionary disruption that Harada and his team have launched – by deposing tyrants, housing refugees, and feeding the poor – has come at the expense of the world’s wealthiest nations. When the planet’s leaders have had enough, it will be decided: Toyo Harada must die. Now a crack unit of operatives will stand against Harada on the global stage…with his own former pupil Livewire taking him head-on! Meanwhile, Harada’s military lieutenant and Project Rising Spirit defector Gravedog is about to meet his match as the H.A.R.D. Corps’ own Major Charlie Palmer drops into the firefight of a lifetime!

This February, war comes raging back to Toyo Harada’s own doorstep for “STORMBREAK” in IMPERIUM #13 – featuring covers by all-star artists Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), CAFU (UNITY), Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS), Ryan Lee (Uncanny Inhumans), and Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK)! Join the series that Bloody Disgusting calls “the height of sophisticated comic book stories” right here as Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans – the Harvey Award-nominated team behind HARBINGER – pit the Valiant Universe’s most notorious superteam against the agents of the very system they’ve sworn to overthrow, beginning in IMPERIUM #13!

Jeff Lemire & Lewis LaRosa Gear Up for Valiant’s BLOODSHOT REBORN: THE ANALOG MAN — DIRECTOR’S CUT #1 – Coming in February!

BSRB-DIRECTORS-CUT_001-LAROSAValiant is proud to announce BLOODSHOT REBORN: THE ANALOG MAN – DIRECTOR’S CUT #1 – an oversized collector’s edition re-presenting the blistering first chapter of Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa’s gear-stripping joyride through the future of the Valiant Universe! On February 24th, go behind the scenes with this special 48-page “director’s cut” of THE ANALOG MAN’s opening salvo from BLOODSHOT REBORN #10 with an electrifying look inside this all-new jumping-on point for Valiant’s most relentless hero!

Stripped down to pencils and letters alone, this is your exclusive first chance to marvel at Lewis LaRosa’s jaw-dropping, hyper-detailed pencil artwork from BLOODSHOT REBORN #10 alongside Jeff Lemire’s complete and expurgated script for the first time anywhere! You’ve never seen Bloodshot like this before as the must-read storyline of the New Year circles back for a bonus presentation of THE ANALOG MAN’s bare-knuckled first issue jumping-on point, only in the BLOODSHOT REBORN: THE ANALOG MAN – DIRECTOR’S CUT #1!

Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland 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!

“THE ANALOG MAN is a benchmark event for Valiant – one that’s not only loaded with action, emotion, and impact, but that will also have dire consequences for Bloodshot,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Jeff and Lewis’ first issue alone is nothing short of staggering, and, even in raw black and white, it stands tall as a monumental piece of comics storytelling. That’s why, for the first time ever, we’re giving fans the opportunity to experience THE ANALOG MAN in pencils alone in this deluxe DIRECTOR’S CUT edition. Come 2016, BLOODSHOT REBORN is going to be one of the most beautiful books on the stands, plain and simple.”

On January 27th, don’t miss a beat as THE ANALOG MAN throttles into comic shops everywhere with a bullet-riddled jumping-on point in BLOODSHOT REBORN #10 – an all-new arc by superstar creators Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa! Then, on February 24th, go back to basics and relive the action in bold black-and-white with an all-access pass to LaRosa’s unfettered pencil-and-ink artwork and Lemire’s complete script, only in the BLOODSHOT REBORN: THE ANALOG MAN – DIRECTOR’S CUT #1!

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 faced before. Separated from his earthly environs, can history’s deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and fare more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered? Beyond Earth lies eternity…

New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (NINJAK, Hawkeye) forge a new legend for Valiant’s master of war with an all-new ongoing series in…WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1!

First Look: Jen Van Meter & Roberto de la Torre Raise Hell in THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #2 – Coming in January!

MIRAGE-SEC_002_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICA lethal menace has been loosed on the world and everyone – living, dead, or in between – is in harm’s way!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #2 (of 4) – the next breathtaking chapter from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter and astonishing artist Roberto de la Torre! The hotly anticipated follow-up to Valiant’s Harvey Award-nominated debut continues this January as the world’s top paranormal investigators discover the true meaning of oblivion!

Shan Fong-Mirage is married to a ghost – the late Hwen Mirage, who she herself pulled back from the brink of eternal imprisonment in the underworld. But this team of paranormal investigators has discovered that even the unliving like Hwen can be killed…and that their own research has unwittingly freed a malevolent spirit from a centuries-old enchantment. Now innocent victims – both among the living and dearly departed – are being massacred. To set this right, the Mirages need to unlock another copy of the ancient spell…and only one other paranormal collector has it. And so now the good doctors must pay a house call to an old enemy…

“The first series really begins with [Shan] bereft of everything that matters to her and trying to figure out how to get it back. What I wanted for this second series was to be able to say, okay, now she’s got what she wanted, except not quite,” Jen Van Meter told ComicsAlliance. “That’s a very different story because when we have lost everything, we don’t really feel guilty or ashamed of wanting to get it back, but when we’ve got almost everything we wanted, it’s really easy to be down on yourself for wanting just that little bit more.”

This January, even the dead have something to fear as the most-demanded couple in comics encounter malevolent forces that could annihilate every soul in existence, only in THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #2 (of 4) — featuring mesmerizing covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Roberto de la Torre (Age of Apocalypse) and Emi Lenox (Plutona)!

Video Trailer & 10-Page Preview: WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1­ Conquers Death Itself on November 18th!

Even in death, his war rages on…

Valiant is proud is proud to debut the official video trailer and extended look inside WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and newly-exclusive Valiant artist Raul Allen(NINJAK, Hawkeye)! On November 18th, BOOK OF DEATH’s immortal master of war steps out of the most successful independent comic book of the decade and into a major new milestone for the Valiant Universe when the Eternal Warrior begins an epic battle to escape the kingdom of the dead and return to the world he was sworn to protect!

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 fallen into the endless abyss of Hell itself…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 withstand a unearthly realm far older, far deadlier, and far more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered before? Beyond the veil of life…eternity awaits…

“I think [WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR is] a totally new perspective on the character,” series writer Robert Venditti told Comic Book Resources. “In the days of old Valiant, we always saw [the Eternal Warrior] as a hero who charged into battle, but I don’t know that the motives were always clear — and certainly not the cost. We’d look at him and think sure, I’d want to live forever. But as we go through this series, we see what he has to sacrifice to be immortal — and we also see how his loved ones all eventually pass on, and what he has lost over the centuries. He has regrets, failures and losses for a hundred lives.”

On November 18th, Valiant superstars Robert Venditti and Raul Allen plunge the Eternal Warrior into the raging inferno beyond the bounds of the Valiant Universe…and begin the battle-hardened road back to the world of man, 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), Dave Lanphear (QUANTUM AND WOODY), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT), find out why critics are calling Valiant’s next tentpole series a staggering odyssey that no comic fan can afford to miss:

“★★★★★… A stunning and dazzling debut… WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 firmly establishes itself as the best first issue to come out of Valiant yet.” – All-Comic

“WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 invigorates an immortal hero… Robert Venditti, Raul Allen and Patricia Martin have crafted a narrative bursting with creativity and intrigue.” – The Beat

“Beautiful and powerful… Venditti and Allen [have] put out a startlingly great first issue that looks to provide new insight into Valiant’s most noble characters.” – Four Letter Nerd

“Writer Robert Venditti clearly loves working on Eternal Warrior… [WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1] is a great jumping-on point for those who liked what they saw in BOOK OF DEATH…” – Comic Crusaders

“Haunted by sinister moments… Expect to get a downpour of action, emotional drama, and a whole lot of corpses. It’s going to be a fun ride.” – Infinite Comix

Variant Cover by ROBERTO DE LA TORRE

The world is suspended within balances of power. Tense and delicate terms of peace, crisscrossing and humming just below the surface. The Vine plantings, undercover alien spies of a galaxy-spanning race, hold positions of influence all over the planet. Toyo Harada, Earth’s most unstoppable psiot, amassed a bedrock of power through his corporate, political, and super-powered maneuverings. A tenuous détente has long held between the slumbering giants, each with the world held loosely in their grip. Until now.

As Harada presses his gambit to wage war for utopia, the agents of the Vine who have watched him for decades move to keep the megalomaniac in check. And if Harada wants to save the world…he’ll have to get rid of the competition. Cold war turns red hot as New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and all-star Valiant artists CAFU (UNITY) and Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK)  unfold another chapter of IMPERIUM, the comic that Herotaku calls “an entertaining, compelling read month after month”!

UNITY #24
Written by JAMES ASMUS

Cover A by DIEGO BERNARD
Variant Cover by AL BARRIONUEVO

Unity vs. the Armor Hunters…rematch!

GIN-GR, the reformed killer robot who destroyed Mexico City and rampaged through downtown Los Angeles during the Armor Hunters’ attack, has turned on her Unity teammates! As she perpetrates the world’s most unstoppable jailbreak – a head-first, guns-blazing, kamikaze flight straight into the military base that holds her one-time squad – can X-O Manowar, Livewire, Ninjak, and the Eternal Warrior stop the giant engine of destruction…while trapped inside it? And if they survive GIN-GR, all they have to look forward to is the remaining Armor Hunters attacking from all sides!

Multiple Harvey Award nominee James Asmus (QUANTUM AND WOODY) and artist Karl Moline (Rogue) rocket UNITY into their most action-packed battle yet!

First Look: X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0 – Robert Venditti & Francis Portela Reveal the Origin of Valiant’s Most Formidable Villain in December!

XO-TRILL_ZERO_COVER-A_JIMENEZValiant is proud to present your first look inside X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRLL #0 – an all-new jumping-on point special revealing the never-before-told origin of X-O Manowar’s most powerful arch-nemesis by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and red-hot artist Francis Portela (FAITH, Green Lantern)! On December 2nd, return to the home world of the Vine’s brutal alien empire to relive the life and times of Aric of Dacia’s bitterest enemy – the cold and calculating Commander Trill!

From Aric of Dacia’s escape with the X-O Manowar armor to the destruction of his own home planet, pain and consequence have haunted the life of the alien general called Commander Trill. Now, on the eve of the most devastating assault yet, find out why with an essential, standalone zero issue detailing the battle-scarred life and origin of the Vine’s mightiest military leader…and an all-new prelude to X-O Manowar’s most terrifying clash of the year!

Featuring covers by earth-shaking artists Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), and David Lafuente (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR), one of the universe’s darkest villains reigns supreme on December 2nd with an all-new one-shot introduction to the many worlds – and many foes – of Valiant’s flagship hero, only in X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0!

Then, Commander Trill’s attack on the Valiant Universe erupts in X-O MANOWAR #43 for THE KILL LIST! After years of planning, Trill hatches his final endgame against Earth and Aric of Dacia. With humanity caught in Trill’s crosshairs, X-O Manowar must turn to his enemy-turned-ally—the deadly MI6 operative Ninjak—to quell the Vine leader’s covert assault! The all-new, pulse-pounding arc begins this January, only in X-O MANOWAR #43!
