SHADOWMAN: END TIMES #1 – Coming in April from PETER MILLIGAN and VALENTINE DE LANDRO!

SM_END_001_COVER_CAMUNCOLIValiant is proud to announce Shadowman: End Times #1 (of 3) – an oversized, prestige three-issue mini-series from master storyteller Peter Milligan (Hellblazer) and acclaimed artist Valentine De Landro (Bitch Planet)! The end times begin this April when Valiant unleashes an all-new starting point for New Orleans’ nocturnal guardian and a perfect introduction to Peter Milligan’s sinister new direction for Shadowman!

Jack Boniface thinks that he’s finally fixed his life — and the source of the dark power inside him. But when a figure from the past emerges to reveal the troubling truth about his destiny, the latest Shadowman will be forced to run a gauntlet of his darkest fears realized: the rise of a wild new pantheon of Voodoo loas… the return of his father, Josiah…and the earthly restoration of his oldest and deadliest enemy, Master Darque. Make no mistake — doom is coming for Shadowman…and the devastating consequences are about to lead Jack Boniface to a perilous new turning point!

“I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that it’s unlikely if Shadowman could ever be the same again after this mini-series. As to what hope fans might have of Jack and Shadowman making it out of this adventure, I’ll quote Shelley: ‘Hope may vanish, but can die not,” Milligan told Newsarama.

“Shadowman: End Times is where we absolutely blow it up,” added editor Alejandro Arbona. “Peter has masterminded a long-term plan for Shadowman, and End Times is its beating heart and guts. Frankly, it’s like nothing I’ve ever read in superhero comics. Don’t think of it as an ending…it’s the beginning of a Shadowman we’ve never seen before.”

This April, Shadowman gets pushed to the edge…but can Jack Boniface survive the plunge? The answers await in Shadowman: End Times #1 (of 3) – featuring covers by red-hot talents Giueseppe Camuncoli (Superior Spider-Man), Jeff Dekal (Journey into Mystery) and David Mack (Daredevil, Kabuki)! Start reading here this April with an all-new entry point into the savage depths of Peter Milligan’s Shadowman saga!

Stripped of the X-O Manowar armor, Aric of Dacia has been imprisoned and interrogated at an off-the-grid black site.

A man who once wielded the most powerful weapon in existence? What knowledge could they want, you ask? All of it. And the agents of Unity will extract every one of Aric of Dacia’s secrets by any means necessary.

Separated from the universe’s most powerful weapon, can the Visigoth warrior that led the world to war still pose a formidable threat? Find out on January 22nd when Unity exacts its revenge on the man at the epicenter of the winter’s blockbuster comic book event, only in X-O Manowar #21!

KANO Joins JAMES ASMUS for QUANTUM AND WOODY #9 – An All-New Jumping-On Point!

QW_009_VARIANT_KANOValiant is proud to announce that fan favorite artist and veteran creator Kano (Swamp Thing, Gotham Central) is joining the world’s worst superhero team for an all-new story arc beginning in Quantum and Woody #9 this April! Written by award-winning writer James Asmus (The End Times of Bram & Ben), jump on board here for a brand new high-stakes adventure pitting Quantum and Woody against the latest scourge of the streets – robots?!

Eric needs to know he can trust Woody – and that means Woody needs to get a job, open a bank account, sign up for a library card, and do all the things a responsible adult does. But when a new gang of rogue mad-scientist super-criminals launch a wave of robo-crime, will Woody stop them…or join them? Plus: the return of Edison Radical Acquisitions, the debauched super-scientists that accidentally gave Quantum and Woody their super-powers. (And that would now like them back, please.)

“In the same way that Tom Fowler and Ming Doyle have both done for the series, Kano is in the perfect wheelhouse to make the reader feel Quantum and Woody’s joy and pain, to tell a clear, vibrant, visual story even as the stuff that happens is madcap, fast-paced, and insane, and to make everything just feel hilarious and exciting,” Quantum and Woody editor Alejandro Arbona told Comic Book Resources.

One of the 2013′s most acclaimed new series debuts kicks off the new year with a KLANG! when acclaimed creators James Asmus and Kano introduce an all-new starting point this April in Quantum and Woody #9 – featuring covers by all-star talents Tom Fowler, Tom Raney and Kano! Start reading here to find out why Quantum and Woody is the superhero series that has fans and critics agreeing – the world’s worst superhero team is off to an awesome start:

“[Quantum and Woody] raced into top gear almost immediately and still hasn’t let go of the throttle.” – Comic Book Resources
“[Valiant] is doing a lot of good things with its superheroes, with [Quantum and Woody] right up there…as the line’s finest.” – USA Today
“This series is impossible not to love. That’s right, impossible.” – IGN
“A perpetually entertaining, consistently surprising onslaught of funny and awesome…” – Multiversity Comics

EW_005_COVER_CRAINValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Eternal Warrior #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of ETERNAL EMPEROR, an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and rising star Robert Gill!

Will this be a new dawn for the age of heroes – or its death knell? And what uncanny confluence of science, myth, and magic has rendered the world – and its own Eternal Warrior – into war-ravaged remnants of their former selves?

Out of the pages of Unity, the Eternal Warrior makes history on January 22nd with a groundbreaking new vision of Valiant’s famous future 4001 A.D. timeline, beginning in Eternal Warrior #5 – also featuring stunning variant covers by Dave Bullock (Batman: Black and White) and David Mack (Daredevil, Kabuki)!
