Cover by CARY NORD

An oversized, deluxe hardcover collecting X-O Manowar’s complete first year in the Valiant Universe!

From the epic origin to the battle for Planet Death, the definitive tale of Valiant’s flagship hero comes together in this prestige-sized collection by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Surrogates) and comics visionaries Cary Nord (Conan), Lee Garbett (Batman: RIP), and Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis).

Aric of Dacia, a fifth century Visigoth armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon, is all that stands between the Earth and all-out annihilation at the hands of the alien race that abducted him from his own time. Stranded in the modern day, X-O Manowar’s battle against the Vine will take him into the shadows with the lethal operative known as Ninjak — and launch a quest for vengeance that will bring an alien empire to its knees. The Vine destroyed Aric’s world. Now he will give them war.

Collecting the sold-out X-O MANOWAR #1-14, the X-O Manowar Vol. 1 Deluxe Oversized HC also comes jam-packed with more than 20 pages of never-before-seen art and extras, direct from the Valiant vaults.

HALLOWEEN Hits SHADOWMAN #11 – A Special October Adventure by JIM ZUB and MIGUEL SEPULVEDA!

SM_011_COVER_TOHalloween is coming – and it’s about to hit the Valiant Universe like a ton of bricks!

Valiant is proud to announce its first standalone Halloween special, coming this October in Shadowman #11 – an all-new, hell-raising, bonfire-blazing adventure from critically acclaimed writer Jim Zub (Skullkickers) and superstar artist Miguel Sepulveda (Red Lanterns, The Thanos Imperative)!

After witnessing the origin of all Shadowmen past and present in Shadowman #10, follow Jack Boniface into his first Halloween in the Valiant Universe! It’s All Hallow’s Eve in News Orleans – and Shadowman’s about to find himself alone on the job, standing guard on the most dangerous night of the year. Still reeling from the fallout of his cataclysmic battle with Master Darque, can Jack go it alone and protect his city from the legion of evils that haunt the Halloween night? By popular demand, it’s a special October tale for Valiant’s nocturnal guardian – and a perfect jumping-on point for new readers!

“Halloween mixes in well with the supernatural action and voodoo that drives the series and this issue uses the over the top Halloween revelry in New Orleans as a backdrop for an action-packed caper,” Zub told the New York Post. “On a night where everyone is in costume and the imagery of death and the supernatural is all over the place, Shadowman can operate a bit more ‘publicly’, but the seasonal chaos also presents a whole other set of challenges.”

SM_011_VARIANT_MASKFeaturing a standard cover by Marcus To (Cyborg 009, Batwing), also look for the Shadowman #11 Halloween Mask Cover – featuring a perforated, fully detachable Shadowman mask printed on high quality card stock that no Valiant fan will want to miss!

VAN LENTE and EVANS Declare SECT CIVIL WAR – A Four-Part Event Beginning in ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #14!

AA_014_COVER_EVANSIt’s a mad, mad, mad, mad Archer & Armstrong event!

Valiant is proud to announce Sect Civil War – an all-new four part event pitching each of the world’s most deadly conspiracies into a globe-spanning power struggle…and Archer & Armstrong along with them! Beginning this October, New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and Harvey Award nominee Khari Evans begin the knockdown, drag-out A&A storyline of the year with an all-new jumping-on point in Archer & Armstrong #14 – and no conspirator will escape unscathed!

For centuries, the cloak-and-dagger coalition of conspiracies collectively known as The Sect has worked together to bring silent oppression and undercover tyranny to a world that thought it was free. But, now after centuries of profit sharing and uneasy alliances, the factions of The Sect are about to erupt into open conflict…and the only men that can end the insanity are Archer & Armstrong! Too bad they’re fighting for different sides! Why? How? And will either survive?

“Suffice to say something happens that puts Archer and Armstrong against each other to the point where you might even be able to re-title the book Archer Versus Armstrong,” Van Lente told Comic Book Resources. “Unfortunately, I can’t really reveal more than that, but it’s something that’s been building for a while and will explode rather messily…”

Featuring a standard cover by new series artist Khari Evans, also look for a series of special Sect Civil War shelf covers by Michael Walsh (The X-Files, Comeback), beginning with the Archer & Armstrong #14 Pullbox Exclusive Variant – available exclusively to comic shop subscribers who pre-order with their local retailer.

VALIANT Names ALEJANDRO ARBONA as ASSOCIATE EDITOR

arbona_photoValiant is proud to announce that veteran editor Alejandro Arbona has been named to the position of Associate Editor. In his new role, Arbona will contribute to Valiant’s growing slate of monthly titles, including Eternal Warrior, Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps, Quantum and Woody, Shadowman, and more. Arbona is just the latest addition to Valiant’s editorial team, joining Assistant Editor Josh Johns, fellow Associate Editor Jody LeHeup, and Executive Editor Warren Simons.

“Alejandro is an exceptionally talented editor,” said Simons. “I was able to work with him at Marvel for a number of years on some amazing titles, and I can’t tell you how happy I am that he’s joining Valiant. He will make a fantastic addition to the team.”

A five-year veteran of Marvel editorial, Arbona edited a host of critically lauded titles during his tenure, including Invincible Iron Man, Osborn: Evil Incarcerated, Red Skull: Incarnate, Legion of Monsters, and more. Most recently, Arbona completed editorial duties on Casanova by Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá, and Fábio Moon; and Sacrifice, the best-selling, self-published series by Sam Humphries and Dalton Rose.

“Valiant blew me away last year, and I had high expectations to begin with,” said Arbona. “When you combine the familiarity of these characters with such fresh new ideas and approaches, and such a crackerjack team of writers, artists, and editors overseeing it all, the potential really is unlimited. And I’m over the moon I get to re-join forces with my mentor, Warren Simons, and take on an entirely new world of great stories.”

“There has been a tremendous response to our books from all sides, and we’re very fortunate to have strong sales and great reviews across the board. We have several new titles in the works with Quantum and Woody hitting this Wednesday, and Eternal Warrior and more special surprises coming later in the year,” added Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “We plan to expand ever further over the next 12 months and Alejandro was the natural choice to help us grow. He’s an incredibly talented editor with a great body of work behind him, and we’re excited and enthused to welcome him to the Valiant family.”

Superstar Artist TREVOR HAIRSINE Joins VALIANT as Exclusive Creator

EW_001_PULLBOX_HAIRSINEIn advance of the release of Eternal Warrior #1 this September, Valiant is proud to announce that superstar artist Trevor Hairsine has signed on as the publisher’s next exclusive artist!

A veteran of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine, Hairsine made his mainstream comics breakthrough in 2002 as the artist of the acclaimed mini-series Cla$$war. Shortly thereafter, Hairsine moved to Marvel, where was named to the first wave of up-and-coming “Young Guns,” alongside Jim Cheung, Olivier Coipel, David Finch, Adi Granov, and Steve McNiven. From 2003 onward, Hairsine penciled several high-profile titles, including Ultimate Six with writer Brian Michael Bendis, X-Men: Deadly Genesis with writer Ed Brubaker, and Ultimate Nightmare with writer Warren Ellis.

Hairsine made his Valiant debut in early 2013, illustrating the prelude to the best-selling “Planet Death” storyline in X-O Manowar and, at present, is completing an acclaimed four-issue run on Harbinger with co-artist Khari Evans. On September 11th, the newly Valiant-exclusive artist will launch his first ongoing series for Valiant with New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak in the pages of Eternal Warrior #1.

“I had a blast working on X-O Manowar and Harbinger, and couldn’t be more excited about launching Eternal Warrior with Greg Pak,” said Hairsine. “Valiant’s an incredibly exciting place to be, and I’m looking forward to making great comics with them for some time to come.”

“Trevor is one of the premier artists in comics and with good reason,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons. “His work is nothing short of stunning, and, at the helm of Eternal Warrior with Greg Pak, they’re readying an absolute monster of a book.”

Hitting shops on September 11th, Eternal Warrior #1 is the first issue of all-new ongoing series featuring Valiant’s most feared immortal, the Eternal Warrior. Across ten millennia and a thousand battlefields, Gilad Anni-Padda has traversed the darkest, most mysterious corners of history. But the horror and bloodshed of constant warfare has finally taken its toll on the man myth calls the Eternal Warrior…and he has abdicated his duties as the Fist and the Steel of Earth for a quiet life of seclusion. But when a blood vendetta from the distant past suddenly reappears in the modern day, he must decide if he will return to the ways of war…for the child who betrayed him thousands of years ago…

Hairsine joins Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (X-O Manowar, Conan) and New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars, Harbinger) as the next addition to Valiant’s roster of exclusive talent.
