Project Rising Spirit’s Darkest Hour Revealed In BLOODSHOT #4

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot #4 from acclaimed writer Duane Swierczynski and the unrelenting artistic duo of Manuel Garcia and Arturo Lozzi!

What top-secret cataclysm did Project Rising Spirit unleash years ago on Atlee, Nevada? And what role did the nanite-enhanced commando known as Bloodshot play in scratching an entire city off the map? With his false memories now wiped away, Bloodshot and the PRS escapee codenamed Pulse are about to bring one hell of a reckoning to the black ops butchers that made them into walking weapons. But will the truth that lies beneath Atlee leave Bloodshot bloodied – or with blood on his hands?

The book that Newsarama calls a “solid suspense comic” with a “lightning-fast pace” hurdles toward the brain-rattling climax of its first campaign into the darkest reaches of the Valiant Universe on October 10th in Bloodshot #4! And go inside the process that revamped and rebuilt the Valiant heroes for a new generation with the Bloodshot #4 Character Design Cover – featuring exclusive Bloodshot art and concept designs by superstar artist David Aja (Hawkeye, Immortal Iron Fist)!

Valiant is proud to announce that X-O Manowar Vol. 1: By The Sword TPB, the first landmark volume of the new Valiant Universe, will be hitting stores everywhere on December 5th — with a special, introductory $9.99 price point!

The first collection of new material from publisher’s smash-hit “Summer of Valiant’ relaunch, X-O Manowar Vol. 1: By The Sword is written by New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti (The Surrogates), illustrated by Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (Conan), and collects the first four issues of the breakout series that has taken fans and critics by storm!

VALIANT Reaps "WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR" In ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5

This December, there will be no escaping the “Wrath of the Eternal Warrior”! Valiant is proud to announce the return of the Eternal Warrior, the immortal master of war and weaponry, in Archer & Armstrong #5-8 — an all-new arc by New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and red-hot artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor)!

No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than Gilad Anni-Padda, the undying Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he has become an unrelenting force of nature, capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now — after years apart — the Eternal Warrior has a mysterious new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect.

“Armstrong and Gilad just do not see eye-to-eye. They’re brothers, but their similarities end at genetics,” writer Fred Van Lente told USA Today.

“Gilad sees [immortality] as a duty to fight for right, Armstrong sees it as an opportunity to drink as much booze and spend as much time with as many beautiful ladies as he can — so this issue is mostly fists, minimal hugs. We’ll see if they can work things out before the four-issue arc ends.”

This December, the book that Boing Boing calls “fantabulous” slams into second gear – and Gilad’s fist and steel! Jump on board as the Eternal Warrior sets out on a merciless manhunt straight through the heart of the Valiant Universe, beginning in Archer & Armstrong #5 — featuring a standard cover by Patrick Zircher, a Pullbox Exclusive Variant by Doug Braithwaite and interlocking incentive variants by Emanuela Lupacchino!

The Fall Of The Foundation Begins In HARBINGER #4

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #4, from New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart and Harvey Award-nominee Khari Evans! Teenage superhuman Peter Stanchek is about to prove that he’s the future of the humanity. Even if it means burning Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation to a cinder.

Inside the walls of Harada’s secret psiot academy, Peter thought he would finally find freedom. Instead, he found a prison designed, built and commanded by a man who has deceived the world with his power. As his most promising pupil quickly becomes his greatest enemy, Harada is about to reveal just how far he will go to maintain his influence – and, to defeat him, Peter will be forced to push the power inside himself to as-yet untested limits. Can a new recruit to the Harbinger cause, Faith Herbert, temper Peter’s anger? Or will she be the first in a new line of students that must now choose a side between student and teacher, hero and villain?

On September 12th, school is out. Of control. The series that Ain’t It Cool News calls “the best book on the market” barrels toward an unavoidable confrontation that will fracture the very foundations of the Valiant Universe, only in Harbinger #4!

JOSHUA DYSART & PHIL BRIONES Recruit "RENEGADES" In HARBINGER #6-10

Valiant is proud to announce the launch of “Renegades” in Harbinger #6 - the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new arc by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier) and artist Phil Briones (Sub-Mariner)! After the epic confrontation between Peter Stanchek and Toyo Harada, the Valiant Universe’s first team of heroes is going to make it their mission to dismantle the Harbinger Foundation brick by brick!

Peter Stanchek is the most dangerous boy in the world and he’s just been forced to return to life on the run. But, this time, he’s anything but alone. With his childhood friend Kris Hathaway and aspiring teenage superhero Faith “Zephyr” Herbert at his side, Peter is now the founding father of the Harbinger Resistance – and the one person on Earth who knows the truth about Toyo Harada’s plans for the fate of humanity. But to snuff out Harada’s global empire wherever it may stand, Peter, Kris and Faith will need to enlist a new generation of untapped psionic soldiers to their cause. And, soon, Peter will awaken his own secret team of super-powered resistance fighters, beginning with hot-headed New Orleans stripper Charlene Dupre, who will teach them all a thing or two about vengeance, acceptance and fire…

“The concept’s really simple: It’s time for Peter to pull himself together. We haven’t revealed how the last arc ends, but needless to say, Peter has to…pull a team together. He’s going to war against Harada and he can’t do it by himself,” writer Joshua Dysart told Comic Book Resources. “It’s us finally putting everybody inthe book. Then, from there, the starting gun really hits… Peter’s going to need more than five people to take on [Harada]. There’s all these exterior forces happening in the Valiant Universe all at once.”

The all-out war against the Harbinger Foundation begins this November with “Renegades,” kicking off in Harbinger #6! And as each new issue introduces a new member in Peter Stanchek’s rogue band of heroes, look for a new interlocking cover by Mico Suayan for issues 7 through 10.
