HARBINGER #25 and HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 – A Brand New Era Begins This Summer!

HAR_025_COVER_A_SUAYANSpinning out of the deadly consequences of “Death of a Renegade” in next week’s HARBINGER #22, Valiant is proud to announce two major milestones coming this summer for the wildly acclaimed ongoing series HARBINGER by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart!

As detailed this weekend at WonderCon 2014, the title will reach its long-planned finale with July’s HARBINGER #25 – an oversized, anniversary milestone issue featuring the final chapter of Dysart’s long-running confrontation between Harbinger’s super-powered team of teenage Renegades and their omega-powered ex-mentor, telekinetic zealot Toyo Harada.

“I’ve always tried to remind readers that these are kids and they’re in over their heads and they’ve never been very good at what they do. There’s just repercussions to this kind of behavior even if you have superpowers,” writer Joshua Dysart told Comic Book Resources. “That’s what we’re moving toward, we’re moving toward that final statement – really saying that strongly for the reader, ‘This is what the story was always about.’ It was about inexperience in the face of great danger.”

Clocking in at a massive 48 pages, HARBINGER #25 will also feature the return of original series artist Khari Evans (Archer & Armstrong) – plus all-new stories and artwork from an incredible cast of talents, including Barry Kitson (Adventures of Superman), Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), Lucy Knisley (Relish: My Life in the Kitchen), Riley Rossmo (Bedlam), Ron Wimberly (Prince of Cats), and many, many more.

HAR_OMEGAS_001_COVER_LAROSAThen, in August – out of the ashes of HARBINGER #25‘s devastating climax – find out what happens next to the most powerful players in the Harbinger universe as Joshua Dysart and heat-seeking artist Rafa Sandoval (Red Hood and the Outlaws) pick up of the pieces with an all-new, three-issue mini-series – HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3) – that closes the door on one generation of Harbinger Renegades…and prepares the foundation for another.

“[HARBINGER: OMEGAS is] about both the surviving members of Harbinger and how they move on from the loss and the finality of the event at the end of the Harbinger book; and it’s also about Harada rebranding, changing his empire, dismantling Harada Global HTC and refashioning himself as really, for lack of a better term, what we would see as a more traditional super villain in comics, because he hasn’t been given a choice,” said Dysart. “It’s a bridge story about the change in these environments and how we’re going to get to the next chapter of the Valiant Universe.”

Jump on board the convention-defying series that the Onion/A.V. Club calls “the crown jewel of Valiant’s line-up” with HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3) in August – an all-new starting point that reveals what happens when the full extent of Harada’s secret superhuman empire is exposed to the public, and just the how the surviving members of the Renegades recover from a catastrophic loss that will change their lives… their team… and their destinies forever.

Read Joshua Dysart’s complete interview about HARBINGER #25, HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3), and his future plans for the HARBINGER universe at Comic Book Resources.

ARMOR HUNTERS Brings BLOODSHOT into UNITY #8 – An All-New Arc by MATT KINDT and STEPHEN SEGOVIA Beginning in June!

UNITY_008_COVER_SUAYAN

Valiant’s all-star superteam is getting a new recruit!

Valiant is proud to announce that Bloodshot will join X-O Manowar, Ninjak, the Eternal Warrior, and Livewire as the newest member of the Unity team in UNITY #8 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new, standalone story arc spinning directly out of the pages of ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4)!

From New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Rai, Mind MGMT) and red-hot artist Stephen Segovia (Superior Carnage), jump on board here as the deadly nanite-enhanced commando known only as Bloodshot steps out of the pages of his solo series and into the ranks of Valiant’s best-selling superteam for a perilous new mission at the epicenter of the ARMOR HUNTERS’ alien onslaught!

UNITY_009_COVER_SUAYANWhen an ultra-powerful threat from deep space begins brutalizing Earth, humanity’s first response is – who else? – the fearless team of heroes, soldiers, and short fuses called Unity! Now it’s down to Ninjak, Eternal Warrior and Livewire – plus the walking weapon of mass destruction called Bloodshot – to lead the assault on the ARMOR HUNTERS’ frontline…even if they die trying!

“The thing I love about the [ARMOR HUNTERS] crossover — and good lord, I never thought I’d say I liked a crossover — is that it’s organic. [ARMOR HUNTERS writer Robert Venditti] had this great idea for a big story — and then we were invited to join it if we thought it would be something interesting… So Bloodshot was sort of a natural fit for this arc,” writer Matt Kindt told IGN.com.

When Aric of Dacia returned to Earth with the stolen X-O Manowar armor of an alien race, he thought he finally found a weapon to guard the peace and kingdom he’d struggled so long to secure. But now, a relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the armor and all like it – have found their final target. The ARMOR HUNTERS are coming. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

In the tradition of the universe-shaking HARBINGER WARS, Valiant’s biggest heroes begin the year’s blockbuster crossover event this June in ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) – and then launch the resistance against the world’s first full-scale cosmic threat with new adventures beginning in UNITY #8, X-O MANOWAR #26, ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3), and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) – each featuring one of five wraparound Chromium covers by some of the biggest talents in comics today!

To find out more about what ARMOR HUNTERS holds for X-O Manowar, Bloodshot and Unity, join us this Saturday for the VALIANT COMICS: INSIDE VALIANT FIRST panel presentation – only at WonderCon Anaheim 2014!

VALIANT to Erect WORLD’S LARGEST FREESTANDING GOAT for World Record Title at C2E2 2014!

C2E2_GOAT_rendering_final

 

This April, get ready to see Quantum and Woody‘s world famous sidekick, Vincent Van Goat, like you’ve never seen him before – 45 feet tall and straddling the entrance to Chicago’s McCormick Place!

Valiant is proud to announce that it has partnered with ReedPOP to attempt a new world record on site at C2E2 2014 – Chicago’s premier comics and pop culture convention – to claim the title of “world’s largest freestanding goat” just as the convention opens it doors to the public on April 25th, 2014.

“The Goat has been the MVP of Quantum and Woody – and maybe all of Valiant – when it comes to piquing interest and curiosity in new readers,” said James Asmus, writer of Quantum and Woody. “I have no doubt that having to enter the convention by walking beneath the realistic under-side of a giant goat will have lots of new comic fans asking ‘What the [expletive of choice] is this about?’”

“For whatever reason, the fans just can’t get enough Goat. We finally gave in and gave them the Goat #0 origin issue, but that just made it worse. We’ve got dozens of people showing up to our offices each day. They’re getting tattoos. They’re legally changing their names to ‘Vincent Van Goat,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce.

“We’re mystified, but we figured, hey, bigger is better right? Hence, the world’s largest freestanding goat was born. Or, rather, will be built. At minimal risk to the surrounding populace. We hope,” added Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.

“Valiant is doing what?” said Jennifer Martin, Sales Executive for ReedPOP. “Not only do they not have permission to build whatever this thing is, it sounds incredibly reckless. This is ill-advised on multiple levels, not to mention unsafe.”

Under the strict observation of Valiant interns, the volunteer G.O.A.T. squad (the Giant Organizational Assembly Team) will begin work today on the 45 foot tall by 25 foot wide effigy dedicated to the greatness of the world’s worst superhero team and their square-pupiled partner-in-crime. A standard size representation of Quantum and Woody, with accompanying banana, will also be provided for scale.

But Quantum and Woody fans rejoice – Valiant isn’t stopping there! Not only will the sculpture qualify as the largest goat ever erected in the history of human civilization, but it will also double as a fully functioning piñata to be stuffed with comics, candy, fireworks…and even smaller goat piñatas.

To be constructed with materials including discount-quality chicken wire, pipefittings, and kerosene-soaked human hair, Valiant’s project managers expect the project to be completed in just under three weeks with a minimal loss of human life. The record-setting goat will be displayed for all three days of C2E2, culminating with Sunday’s “Valiant First Piñata Party,” during which attending fans will be equipped with official Goat bludgeoning rods. The first fan to successfully penetrate the artificial beast’s incredibly flammable hide and unearth the goodies inside will be offered up in tribute to the gods of retailer ordering practices.

Parking is expected to be difficult. In the event of lightning, maintain a minimum safe distance and shelter in place.

Reading the complete text of this announcement qualifies as a legal waiver for any and all immediate and/or longterm bodily harm and/or property damage that may result from contact with said sculpture. Enjoy the show!

PRELUDE TO ARMOR HUNTERS Sells Out, Returns with Second Printings in April and May!

XO_023_SECOND-PRINTValiant is proud to announce that both X-O MANOWAR #23 and X-O MANOWAR #24 – featuring the landmark PRELUDE TO ARMOR HUNTERS, Valiant’s summer 2014 crossover event – have both completely sold out at the distributor level and will soon return to store shelves with new covers featuring the stunning interior art of red-hot rising star Diego Bernard (Red Lanterns, Eternal Warrior)!

“Diego Bernard is a phenomenal new talent, and he’s delivering some truly mind-blowing work on PRELUDE TO ARMOR HUNTERS. He’s dedicated to X-O Manowar for the long haul and, with his first issues rocketing into a lightning-fast sell-out, this is a perfect opportunity to showcase his jaw-dropping interiors with new covers for X-O MANOWAR #23 and X-O MANOWAR #24,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons.

Written by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Flash) with art by Bernard, the road to the Valiant event of 2014 begins right here in PRELUDE TO ARMOR HUNTERS as X-O Manowar hurtles toward his first epic confrontation with the galaxy’s most feared team of hunter-killers. For eons, one threat above all others has brought pain and strife down upon civilizations across the universe – the X-O Manowar armor. And now X-O Manowar has come to Earth. What will follow in its wake? Only the creature called Malgam knows the truth…and, before the ARMOR HUNTERS strike this June, Aric of Dacia is about to be forced into a brutal confrontation with the deadly legacy behind the universe’s most powerful weapon.

“The fact that we’re seeing such high demand for ARMOR HUNTERS-related titles months before the event launches in full this June – and even before X-O MANOWAR #24 has arrived in stores – is an excellent indication that Valiant’s upcoming crossover will be the event to watch this summer. These two prelude issues are an indispensable introduction to the action-packed blockbuster of a story that Robert Venditti and Doug Braithwaite have in store,” said Hunter Gorinson, Valiant’s Director of Marketing, Communications, and Digital Media. “Combine those facts with Diego Bernard’s incredible artwork, and you can see why PRELUDE TO ARMOR HUNTERS is a pivotal turning point for one of Valiant’s flagship series.”

XO_024_SECOND-PRINT

Picking up out of the pages of X-O MANOWAR #23 and X-O MANOWAR #24, New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite unleash the first issue of 2014’s must-read crossover event this June in ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4). Then, Valiant’s biggest heroes launch the resistance against the world’s first full-scale cosmic threat with new arcs beginning in UNITY #8 and X-O MANOWAR #26 in June; and ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3) and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) beginning in July!

Don’t miss the opening salvo of the cataclysm that is to come right here with the X-O MANOWAR #23 SECOND PRINTING and X-O MANOWAR #24 SECOND PRINTING – featuring new covers from Valiant’s next heat-seeking superstar Diego Bernard! Start reading here to find out why PRELUDE TO ARMOR HUNTERS is a comic book milestone in the making:

“The fact that this is only the prelude to the Armor Hunters storyline is very good news. If things start off this awesome, they can only get better.” – IGN

“✮✮✮✮✮… X-O Manowar always pushes forward towards something greater and that’s what makes this just not a top book at Valiant, but also a top book in comics in general. This next arc kicks off with a bang…” – Comic Vine

“Armor Hunters is the next big thing at Valiant… I can dig that for sure.” – Multiversity Comics

Video Trailer: RAI #1 – A Daring New Vision of the Future from MATT KINDT and CLAYTON CRAIN!

Valiant is proud to debut the official video trailer for RAI #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Unity, Mind MGMT) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (X-Force, Carnage)! Now set to arrive in stores on April 30th – one week earlier than previously solicited, and just in time for Free Comic Book Day 2014 – discover the world of 41st century Japan with an all-new vision of the future unlike anything you’ve seen before!

The year is 4001 A.D. – led by the artificial intelligence called “Father,” the island nation of Japan has expanded out of the Pacific and into geosynchronous orbit with the ravaged Earth below. With billions to feed and protect, it has fallen to one solitary guardian to enforce the law of Father’s empire – the mysterious folk hero known as Rai. They say he can appear out of nowhere. They say he is a spirit…the ghost of Japan. But when the first murder in a thousand years threatens to topple Father’s benevolent reign, Rai will be forced to confront the true face of a nation transformed…and his own long-lost humanity…

On April 30th, Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain’s one-of-a-kind adventure proves that there is nothing else in comics like RAI! Contact your local retailer to pre-order your copy today, and look for the RAI #1 PLUS EDITION – featuring 15+ pages of all-new, in-story content that won’t be collected for the trade and limited to initial orders – in stores the same day!

VALIANT and CATALYST GAME LABS Partner for New Line of Comic Book-Based Tabletop Games

VALIANT RPG_Image by Tom RaneyValiant Entertainment is proud to announce that it has partnered with Catalyst Game Labs to produce role-playing and tabletop games featuring Valiant’s award-winning library of comic book superheroes. The partnership will lead off in mid-2014 with the release of the Valiant Universe RPG—Valiant’s first-ever role-playing game, designed for the Cue System (the Origins and ENnie awards-nominated system first published in Catalyst’s 1950s Rockets/Rayguns/Robots RPG, Cosmic Patrol). Subsequent releases, spotlighting a wide array of Valiant properties, will follow in 2015 and beyond.

The edge between superhero and villain has never been sharper. In the Valiant Universe RPG, players will immerse themselves in a dark and gritty world where every mission and every battle has deadly consequences. Whether playing X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Shadowman or even the all-powerful Toyo Harada—or any of dozens of characters—Valiant’s most fearless heroes will unite for the first time in a roleplaying game, allowing you to join their stories and create new ones! Whether you’re a longtime fan or brand new to the Valiant Universe, this is the only source you’ll need to bring Valiant’s leading characters to life in a fantastic superheroes setting!

“This is really a dream come true,” said Randall N. Bills, Managing Developer for Catalyst Game Labs. “I’ve always been a comics fan—as are most of Catalyst’ employees—and getting the chance to publish great games within a fantastic comics universe is spectacular. The fact that it’s Valiant, with its brilliant combination of heroic action and gritty realism, makes this all the more enjoyable.”

Valiant is a leading character-based entertainment company with a library of over 1,750 characters, including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Harbinger, Shadowman and many more. Established in 1989, Valiant has sold over 80 million comic books, and today its characters continue to be forged in publishing, licensing, film, video games, and beyond. Since its summer 2012 relaunch, Valiant has returned to the fore as one of the most highly regarded publishers in comics, winning a 2012 Diamond Gem Award for Comic Book Publisher of the Year. Just last month, the publisher announced Valiant First—a brand new publishing initiative primed to unleash a major #1 new series debut monthly throughout 2014, beginning in May with RAI #1—the first issue of an all-new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt with fully painted interiors by superstar artist Clayton Crain.

“Catalyst is exceptional at what they do, and we couldn’t be happier to be working with a games publisher of their caliber on Valiant’s very first RPG. With such a skilled an enthusiastic team at the helm, we have every faith that Valiant’s first foray into the world of role-play and tabletop gaming will live up to the expectations of our fans around the world,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales. “Catalyst is dedicated to doing these characters justice, and we look forward to giving our biggest heroes the gaming debut they deserve when the Valiant Universe RPG arrives later this year.”

Look to www.catalystgamelabs.com in the future for more details surrounding these coming games!

Valiant’s Massive ARMOR HUNTERS Crossover “Unlocks” Five Blockbuster Chromium Covers in June and July!

AH_001_COVER_MOLINA

This summer, Valiant is kicking its colossal, 18-part ARMOR HUNTERS crossover event to high gear with five wraparound Chromium covers in June and July!

Featuring art by an outstanding array of superstar talents – including Jorge Molina, Mico Suayan, Clayton Crain, Philip Tan, and Lewis LaRosa – each Chromium-wrapped ARMOR HUNTERS issue represents an all-new jumping-on point for Valiant’s star-studded crossover epic.

Valiant will offer qualifying retailers worldwide the chance to “unlock Chromium” with five specially manufactured, limited edition Chromium covers for Armor Hunters #1 (of 4), Unity #8, and X-O Manowar #26 in June; and Armor Hunters: Bloodshot #1 (of 3) and Armor Hunters: Harbinger #1 (of 3) in July. Non-chromium standard editions of all five titles will also be offered for sale.

Contact your local retailer to pre-order your ARMOR HUNTERS Chromium Editions today…and ensure that you get the full, armor-plated experience of the biggest Valiant event ever!

“Valiant introduced Chromium to comics and we won a slew of innovation awards for Joe Quesada’s beautiful Chromium cover to the original X-O Manowar #0. We’ve received countless requests to bring Chromium back since our return in 2012, but wanted to wait until we had a story that justified its return. Now, with Armor Hunters, we have that story. In the wake of the announcement of Valiant First and Rai #1, the timing couldn’t be better to launch our biggest crossover event yet with the armor-plated opening salvo it deserves,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce.

“This is bigger and bolder than anything we’ve done before. With Armor Hunters, Robert Venditti and Doug Braithwaite are laying down what could quite possibly be the most ambitious, most high stakes, most consequence-filled story in Valiant’s history. We’re going to be equally bold with our marketing and sales, and the first of those initiatives is Chromium. It’s a story-centric enhancement that reaches right back to Valiant’s roots and we’re proud to be able to offer these five Armor Hunters Chromium Editions as on-the-shelf items for excited fans across the world,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.

Retailers will be eligible to “unlock Chromium” based on their orders of Armor Hunters #1 (of 4), Unity #8, X-O Manowar #26, Armor Hunters: Bloodshot #1 (of 3), and Armor Hunters: Harbinger #1 (of 3). After “unlocking” each separate title, qualifying retailers may order as many Chromium editions of the corresponding title as they like. Retailers be advised: due to the lead time needed to manufacture this special cover process, print runs for all five Armor Hunters Chromium editions have already been set. Supplies are robust but limited, and allocations may occur. If allocations do occur, they will be made based on initial orders.
