VALIANT MASTERS: SHADOWMAN Spotlights DITKO, ENGLEHART, HALL, LAPHAM, SHOOTER, and More!

vm_shadowman_001_006This May, a new day is dawning for Valiant’s original defender of the New Orleans night!

Valiant is proud to announce the upcoming release of Valiant Masters: Shadowman Vol. 1 – Spirits Within – the first-ever deluxe hardcover collection featuring the origin and debut solo adventures of Shadowman in the original Valiant Universe!

Wild, reckless, and hell-bent on eliminating evil in all its forms, Jack is now his city’s new protector – the nocturnal avenger simply called Shadowman.

Featuring appearances by X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong and more of the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes, Valiant Masters: Shadowman Vol. 1 – Spirits Within also brings together classic work from a who’s who of comics luminaries, including Steve Ditko, Steve Englehart, Bob Hall, David Lapham, Bob Layton, Jim Shooter and many more!

Your First Look Inside PLANET DEATH in X-O MANOWAR #11!

XO_011_COVER_CRAIN
USA Today today debuted the first look inside Valiant’s new star-studded story arc, PLANET DEATH, launching on March 20th in X-O Manowar #11!

Reuniting the chart-topping creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord, Planet Death is a story a year in the making – and one that will have massive consequences for Aric of Dacia as he mounts a one-man revenge mission against an entire alien world. The invasion is here – and X-O Manowar is the invader. This is PLANET DEATH!

Aric of Dacia, a 4th 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. Now, the day of Aric’s reckoning has finally come. As his Visigoth forefathers sacked Rome, Aric will take the battle directly to his oppressors on the Vine homeworld of Loam. He will decimate their armies, he will level their cities – and he will not stop until the whole of their empire is reduced to ash.

“One of the great tragedies of Aric’s character is he grew up under the heel of the Roman Empire, and he never got to see the Visigoths have their day,” Venditti told USA Today. “While his uncle Alaric was sacking Rome on Earth, Aric was a prisoner of the Vine in space. His experience with the Vine has led him to equate them to the Romans, though, and now they’ve become the focus of his anger. That doesn’t bode well for them.”

Running through X-O Manowar #11-14, PLANET DEATH is a perfect place to jump on board one of the most acclaimed series in comics. With the first installment of the two-part Prelude to PLANET DEATH in stores now, find out why this is the comics event that has fans and critics raving – then get a sneak preview of PLANET DEATH – Part 1 (of 4) in X-O Manowar #11, only at USA Today!

The Road to HARBINGER WARS Begins in BLOODSHOT #8

BS_008_COVER_LOZZI-310x478

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot #8 by the critically heralded creative team of writer Duane Swierczynski and artist Manuel Garcia! The road to Harbinger Wars starts here as Bloodshot’s assault on Project Rising Spirit faces down its toughest obstacle yet – the secret prisoners of the PRS Nursery and, with them, Bloodshot’s own deadly legacy in the Valiant Universe!

Bloodshot has been taking his revenge on Project Rising Spirit one body at a time. But nothing could have prepared him for what awaits inside the darkest recesses of PRS’ covert research facility. Deep underground, get ready to go to war with the band of frenzied, furious and all-out explosive teenage telekinetics that Bloodshot once stalked and captured as an agent of PRS. The children of the Nursery have had years to plan their revenge…and what they have in store for the “Boogeyman” behind their nightmares will be far worse than death itself.

On February 13th, the past isn’t just haunting Bloodshot, it’s hunting him – only in Bloodshot #8!

NOTHING IS FOREVER in ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #7

AA_007_COVER_LUPACCHINO-310x476

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #7 by New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and acclaimed artist Emanuela Lupacchino! “The Wrath of the Eternal Warrior” continues on February 13th as Archer & Armstrong join the new Geomancer’s sacred quest to quell the forces of the Null!

From Calcutta to New York City, Archer & Armstrong have been racing desperately to stay one step ahead of Armstrong’s bellicose brother, Gilad – aka the Eternal Warrior. Lucky then that Zorn Capital spokeswoman Kay McHenry has just discovered that she is the next in the long line of Geomancers – the mystical beings to whom the Warrior has sworn his fist and steel. Now Kay, Gilad, and our heroes must put aside their differences to stop Kay’s boss, Elliot Zorn, and the zero-worshipping fanatics in the Null before they destroy reality altogether.

Can Valiant’s conspiracy-smashing adventurers add up the Null’s master plan before everything that is becomes nothing at all? Because if they don’t, the Valiant Universe might just become a vacuum in Archer & Armstrong #7 – in stores on February 13th!

SHADOWMAN #0 and ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #0 – Coming This May from VALIANT!

SM_ZERO_WRAPAROUND_LAROSA-640x323 SM_ZERO_CVR_JOHNSON-310x465

This May, jump into two of Valiant’s most popular ongoing series with all-new, standalone entry points in Shadowman #0 and Archer & Armstrong #0 – as told by an all-star cast of Valiant’s visionary talents!

First, writers Justin Jordan & Patrick Zircher team up with superstar artist Trevor Hairsine to chronicle the rise and fall of the 20th century’s greatest defender in Shadowman #0! Twenty-five years ago, Josiah Boniface was the Shadowman, and he had more problems than simply Master Darque – things from beyond are trying to eat the world, the police are trying to send him to jail and now he’s got to rescue Helena LeBreton from a murderous cult, whether she likes it or not.

Then, in Archer & Armstrong #0, the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry reunite to tell a tale of the early days of the man known as Armstrong! How early? How’s ancient Ur sound?! For the first time, the 100 percent true story behind the Epic of Gilgamesh can be told… A tale of three warrior brothers, the Anni-Padda – better known to the Valiant Universe as Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior and Timewalker – on a quest to the mysterious Faraway. What they find is a lost land full of danger, excitement – and the greatest secret of the Valiant Universe!

AA_ZERO_CVR_HENRY-310x450

Master Darque’s grand plan for Jack Boniface, the new Shadowman, has finally reached critical mass. Ripped away from the earthly plane, Jack and Darque’s monstrous foot solider, Mr. Twist, now must battle to the death. Everything hangs in the balance… For Jack, for his mysterious new acolytes in the Abettors, and for the world as we know it… Because if Twist succeeds, then Master Darque will walk the Earth once more.

With a private army of hyper-telekinetics at his side, this omega-powered harbinger of humanity’s potential has spent decades reshaping the world to conform to his will. Now here, for the very first time, witness the origin and rise to power of this malevolent mind that would destroy the Valiant Universe rather than see it slip through his fingers.
