Destiny or Death! ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 Rages On!

EW_001_COVER_CRAINValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Eternal Warrior #1 – Valiant’s next ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (Batman/Superman) and superstar artist Trevor Hairsine (Ultimate Nightmare)! On September 11th, two all-star creators come together to forge a brand new legend of the Valiant Universe!

After centuries on the battlefield, Gilad Anni-Padda has abdicated his duties as the Earth’s immortal Fist and Steel for a simple life of seclusion. Living quietly among the wilderness, the undying Eternal Warrior has sworn not to raise his sword again – until his own daughter, long thought dead, brings an ancient war raging back to his doorstep…and, with it, a deadly legacy far bigger than a single warrior.

Beware the Sword of the Wild when Valiant’s immortal guardian ventures into a battle beyond myth, beyond legend, and beyond time on September 11th in Eternal Warrior #1!

Comic shop subscribers take note: contact your local retailer today to reserve your limited Eternal Warrior #1 Pullbox Exclusive Variant by series artist Trevor Hairsine, available only to pre-order/pullbox customers!

UNITY_001_VARIANT_ADAMSValiant is proud to unveil two retailer incentive covers for UNITY #1 by legendary artist and comics icon Neal Adams (Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Batman: Odyssey)! Arriving in stores on November 13th, the UNITY #1 Adams Variant and UNITY #1 B&W Adams Sketch Variant feature X-O Manowar locked in combat against the combined forces of Valiant’s first-ever super team – UNITY!

“Any cover promotion you see for this book is a mere reflection of the work you will see inside. Valiant is climbing the ladder that will lead to a new pinnacle of success in your comic book reading. Don’t pass this bad boy by,” said Adams.

To kill a king…he has created an army. The world’s most dangerous man, Toyo Harada, has been struck by the one thing he never thought possible – fear. Halfway across the globe, a new power threatens to topple modern civilization and, to preempt the cataclysm that is to come, Harada will unite the most lethal, most volatile, most unforgiving team the world has ever known – UNITY. Their mission: defeat the threat responsible for the destruction of MI-6, the decimation of an alien world, and the occupation of Eastern Europe… Unseat the warrior king armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon… Kill X-O Manowar!

C’mon, we warned you twice! For serious, on August 28th, don’t miss your chance to discover the origin of the world’s worst superhero team – as told by red-hot creators James Asmus (Thief of Thieves) and Tom Fowler (Venom)! When their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a life-altering scientific accident, Eric and Woody Henderson will find themselves with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear costumes and fight crime.

AA_012_COVER_LUPACCHINOValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #12 by New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and rising star Pere Perez! The battle for control of the time-lost land of the Faraway starts now, as General Alphonse Redacted charges into battle with his 500 Shades of Greys!

If General Redacted wins the Faraway, he’ll use its centuries-old secrets to stamp out the heathen collectivist Bolsheviks of modern day America. Now, it’s down to Archer, Armstrong, and Mary-Maria, Archer’s assassin stepsister/love interest (ew), to run the greatest infiltration/liberation/inebriation mission mankind has ever known. Which would be a cakewalk if its wasn’t for all the trigger-happy UFOs, hostile natives and, of course, the dinosaurs… Yep, they could definitely do without all those dinosaurs.

Don’t miss the next REDACTED-smashing moment of “Far Faraway” when Fred Van Lente and Pere Perez toss Valiant’s conspiracy-busting adventure buddies into the fight of their lives, only in Archer & Armstrong #12 – on sale August 14th!

UNITY_001_COVER_BRAITHWAITE_1On November 13th, Valiant’s most uncompromising heroes will unite for the very first time – in all-new ongoing series!

As revealed today by the Associated Press, the must-read comic book event of the year is UNITY #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new monthly series written by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT, Justice League of America) with art by comics superstar Doug Braithwaite (Justice, Journey Into Mystery) and colorist Brian Reber (Harbinger Wars, Shadowman)!

To kill a king…he has created an army. The world’s most dangerous man, Toyo Harada, has been struck by the one thing he never thought possible – fear.

Their mission: defeat the warrior king armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon. Kill X-O Manowar!

“UNITY is the single biggest thing that Valiant has thrown its weight behind since the launch of the company with X-O Manowar #1,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “If you’ve heard the buzz about Valiant, if you’ve seen the incredible reviews, but have yet to try one of our titles, UNITY #1 is the perfect starting point. Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite are crafting an incredibly daring, action-packed epic from page one. UNITY is the very definition of can’t-miss comics.”

In anticipation of launching the publisher’s first milestone super-team title, both Doug Braithwaite and Brian Reber have signed Valiant-exclusive contracts, joining Cary Nord (X-O Manowar), Trevor Hairsine (Eternal Warrior) and Joshua Dysart (Harbinger, Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps) on Valiant’s growing roster of exclusive talent.

In another first for Valiant, UNITY #1 will be 100% returnable for qualifying retailers and feature five limited Pullbox Exclusive Variants (available to fans who pre-order with their local retailer) from a “murderers’s row” of comics all-stars – Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates, Age of Ultron), J.G. Jones (Final Crisis, Wanted), Travel Foreman (Animal Man), Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) and Clayton Crain (Ghost Rider, Carnage).

VALIANT_luge suit voting pollBefore USA Luge takes to the ice at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, you can help decide which Valiant-designed uniform America’s luge athletes will wear into competition next February!

Valiant is proud to announce that it has partnered with USA Luge, home of the fastest sport on ice, and USA Luge technical partner Dow for a new online contest to choose the final sled, helmet and suit designs to be used in competition at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Now through August 23rd, fans worldwide can visit www.USALuge.com to vote on their favorite combination of Valiant-designed helmets and racing suits – as envisioned by Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans (Harbinger, Archer & Armstrong) – and Dow-engineered sled! The winning, fan-selected design will join the USA Luge team in competition next February, as they represent the United States at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

“A modern, sharp-looking uniform is more than mere aesthetics, as it helps boost the confidence of athletes,” said Gordy Sheer, 1998 Olympic silver medalist and Director of Marketing and Sponsorship for USA Luge. “Valiant Entertainment has an incredible design sense, and we’re thrilled to have them contributing to the look of the USA Luge helmets and race suits for the Sochi 2014 Games.”

“Valiant is incredibly proud to be a sponsor of USA Luge, and the responsibility of overseeing the team’s next great suit and helmet designs – to be seen in action at the Sochi 2014 Games – is one that we do not take lightly. It’s been an honor to participate in the process, and we look forward to seeing which thrilling design the fans decide to send into action alongside USA Luge’s athletes in Sochi this winter,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions and Ad Sales.

The newly selected helmet and suit design will be the second Valiant-inspired uniform employed by USA Luge. A corporate sponsor of the team and its athletes since 2012, Valiant also designed the look of USA Luge’s race gear for the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 World Cup and World Championship seasons with a groundbreaking uniform design patterned after the iconic design of X-O Manowar, the armor-clad hero of Valiant’s flagship comic series.

Now, with four all-new new designs to choose from – Flagship, Racer, Silver Wave, and Stargate – fans are encouraged to select their favorite look and make their voice heard before the final ballots are cast on August 23rd. Visit www.USALuge.com today to cast your vote and bring the USA Luge team one step closer to glory this winter at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games!
