VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES Returns for SECRET WEAPONS #1 by Eric Heisserer & Raul Allen – On Sale June 28th!

SW_001_COVER-A_ALLENValiant is proud to announce that the publisher’s limited-edition line of VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES (VVSS) editions will return on June 28th for SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the MUST-READ new series from Academy Award-Nominated writer Eric Heisserer (screenwriter of the international smash-hit ARRIVAL and the upcoming BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER feature films from Sony Pictures) and visionary artist Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) with Patricia Martin (BLOODSHOT REBORN)!

In stores June 28th, the SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4) VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES edition will feature virgin cover art by artist Raul Allen and will come hand-signed in gold ink by writer Eric Heisserer. Additionally, each copy of the SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4) VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES edition will come complete with a Certificate of Authenticity witnessed and signed by Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani and Publisher Fred Pierce and will feature an official VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES seal embossed on the front cover.

Established in 1993 with the release of RAI AND THE FUTURE FORCE #9, the VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES is a high-end, special treatment given to limited-edition copies of some of Valiant’s most prominent releases – issued and authenticated by Valiant itself and signed by members of each series’ respective creative team. The VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES was a hallmark of the original Valiant Universe and would go on to adorn some of the publisher’s most renowned releases with signatures from legendary industry talents, including Sean Chen, Dick Giordano, Bob Layton, John Ostrander, Don Perlin, Bart Sears, and more.

“It is Valiant’s distinct honor to return to one of our most fondly remembered traditions with the newly revitalized VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “From our very first release, X-O MANOWAR #1 in 2012, the Valiant fans have been demanding the return of the VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES. This summer, SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4) will be of the utmost importance to the Valiant Universe at large, making it the perfect title to lead the reintroduction of this line.”

The SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4) VALIANT VALIDATED SIGNATURE SERIES edition will be strictly limited to the number of qualifying retailer orders. Contact your local retailer today to reserve your copy.

Be there on June 28th as Eric Heisserer, Raul Allen, and Patricia Martin introduce Livewire to a newfound generation of heroes with one of the year’s most consequential and gripping adventures in SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4) – an all-new, Valiant Prestige format limited series putting Valiant’s electrifying heroine in command of an extraordinary new team!

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…

Jump on board here to find out why SECRET WEAPONS #1 – the first game-changing comics collaboration from the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of ARRIVAL and the visionary art team behind WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR – is already being heralded as one of the year’s most stunning new series:

“[SECRET WEAPONS] could shake up comics… [Livewire] is the ideal character for [Heisserer] to focus on after his Academy Award-nominated ARRIVAL screenplay.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“[SECRET WEAPONS] looks amazing.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Some of [Heisserer’s] most ambitious work.” – MTV

“[Heisserer] is set to make a splash in the comic book world.” – Blastr

“We’re stoked on [SECRET WEAPONS] and can’t wait to see what Eric Heisserer, Raul Allen, and colorist Patricia Martin are cooking up… This is a match made in heaven.” – Nerdist

Featuring covers from Raul Allen (NINJAK), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Roberto De La Torre (Daredevil), and Bryan Hitch (The Authority), masterclass storytellers Eric Heisserer and Raul Allen begin the summer’s most talked-about adventure on June 28th, only in SECRET WEAPONS #1 – presented in the deluxe VALIANT PRESTIGE format!

First Look: BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – Lemire, LaRosa & Suayan Lead Valiant’s Next Blockbuster Ongoing Series in September!

BSS_001_COVER-A_BODENHEIMAs revealed last week at the third annual #ValiantSummit in Los Angeles, Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the BLOCKBUSTER NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Moon Knight) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN, SAVAGE) & Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! On September 27th, to protect his true love and newborn daughter from the forces that made him a walking weapon, Valiant’s machine-made soldier will be forced to run his most dangerous mission yet…and begin a harrowing gauntlet of revenge and bloodshed that will forever redefine the course of Bloodshot’s present and future…

Spanning two timelines – the present day (with art by LaRosa) and the future (with art by Suayan) – Jeff Lemire’s best-selling, critically adored Bloodshot epic explodes with an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – featuring the essential introduction of Jessie, Bloodshot’s daughter and a new force in the Valiant Universe, following her first cameo appearance in the upcoming VALIANT: X-O MANOWAR FCBD SPECIAL, in stores this Free Comic Book Day!

Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form of the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of homegrown criminals – re-emerge to lay claim to their lost daughter, Bloodshot will be pushed back to the brink of madness, mayhem, and warfare…

Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…

“[BLOODSHOT SALVATION] marks a big shift for Bloodshot. He is now a parent, and his mission and focus shifts to protecting Jessie from all the various factions hunting her,” writer Jeff Lemire told IGN. “SALVATION will build off of everything I did in Reborn, but it will not retread the same themes or events. It breaks new ground and takes the character on a whole new journey.”

On September 27th, the circle of time envelops Bloodshot’s present and future…and the fate of Valiant’s hard-fought hero runs red as Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa, and Mico Suayan ready a punishing jumping-on point for the most devastating superhero saga in comics today. Bloodshot – and the child he’d do anything to protect – leap into the firefight of their lives when one of 2017’s most anticipated new series begins in full force in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – featuring covers by Ryan Bodenheim (NINJAK, The Dying & The Dead) and Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates, Superman)!

Plus: Don’t miss the rest of Valiant’s major “ICONS” launches throughout 2017 with an all-new wave of ongoing series, prestige format projects and standalone events spanning the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes and top talents! Out of the record-setting success of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – the year’s best-selling series debut from any independent publisher – “ICONS” will continue throughout the year with one major new series launch each month, featuring the publisher’s most enduring heroes:

Valiant’s critically acclaimed, 10-time sold-out magnum opus returns with a brand-new journey into myth and mystery, from comics master Peter Milligan (Shade, The Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA)!

Fifty thousand Romans stand on their feet, watching from the rafters of the coliseum with captured breath as Achillia, a gladiator unlike any that Rome has seen before, faces incredible odds – one lone warrior against five of Rome’s greatest. Such is the tradition, when a female gladiator enters the fray. When the carnage is complete, the coliseum roars its approval as Achillia stands victorious. Now, only one match away from winning her freedom, she has begun to gain renown. The women of Rome, suppressed by their husbands and fathers, have noticed. The men of Rome, husbands and fathers to a growing horde of women entertaining ideas of independence, have noticed as well.

On the other side of Rome, a strange mystery swirls through the Palatine Hill. In the dead of night, down winding alleys, Rome’s elite swear that they see visions of a blood-soaked Apollo walking the city…visions that are driving them mad. Even more are becoming sick with weird fever god-dreams. Panic ensues in the city. The Chief Vestal, Rubria, is arrested by Emperor Nero and threatened with crucifixion unless the deadly curse that’s fallen on Rome is lifted. She asks Antonius Axia, hero of Britannia and Rome’s only detective, for help. She offers only one clue…the gladiator Achillia.

As revealed today at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to announce BLOODSHOT’S DAY OFF #1 – a standalone one-shot special celebrating 25 years of Valiant’s hard-coded commando from rising star Eliot Rahal (Divinity III: Escape from Gulag 396) and explosive artist Khari Evans (Harbinger, Harley Quinn)! On July 5th, the Bloodshot Squad rockets out of the pages of BLOODSHOT REBORN and onto the streets of Manhattan for some hard-earned R&R in Valiant’s next special issue commemorating the greatest Valiant tales of past and present with an action-packed tribute to the original Bloodshot #12!

For the first time in over 30 years, two nanite-enhanced soldiers once controlled by Project Rising Spirit – codenames: “Tank Man” and “Viet Man” – have finally earned their freedom and some government-sanctioned downtime, courtesy of Uncle Sam. After enduring a lifetime of war, blood, and fire, all these two semi-retired commandos want is a little vacation. But how long can this pair of highly trained tourists unwind and enjoy the sights of New York City… before they find trouble in the city that never sleeps?

On July 5th, two of Valiant’s most hardened veterans rotate back to the civilian life…and get thrown into the fight of their careers! This summer, Eliot Rahal and Khari Evans set the Big Apple’s deadliest tourist trap yet in Valiant’s final celebratory special of the summer, only in BLOODSHOT’S DAY OFF #1 – featuring covers by Kano (Swamp Thing), Khari Evans (Ninjak), Ben Tiesma (TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything), and Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Reborn)!

Plus: On May 10th, take up arms alongside New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps.) and acclaimed artist Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Reborn, Wolverine) as they unleash ETERNAL WARRIOR: AWAKENING #1 – the second of four special issues honoring the most beloved Valiant stories ever told with an astonishing standalone tale torn from Gilad Anni-Padda’s long march through the ages.

Then: On June 14th, traverse the long and storied history behind the rise of Earth’s most formidable heroes with multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Harbinger Renegade) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (Faith) for RAI: THE HISTORY OF THE VALIANT UNIVERSE #1 – an astonishing standalone tale revealing the saga behind Valiant’s greatest heroes and villains! From the prehistoric ruins of Babylon to the far reaches of the 41st century, salute 25 years of Rai’s place at the apex of Valiant’s reach across the ages right here…and enter a jam-packed, centuries-spanning jumping-on point for the largest independent superhero universe in comics!

Lettered Preview Debut: RAPTURE #1 – Ninjak Leads Shadowman’s Road to Redemption on May 24th!

RAPTURE_001_COVER-A_SUAYANMatt Kindt & CAFU Go Beyond Earth for Valiant’s First Fantasy-Driven Summer Event!

As revealed at ComicBook.com, Valiant is proud to present your first lettered look inside RAPTURE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s astonishing standalone event from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar, Dept. H) and explosive artist CAFU (Rai)! On May 24th – the next “X-O Manowar Wednesday” in comics shops everywhere – join deadly MI-6 assassin Ninjak and the damaged supernatural guardian called Shadowman as they lead a preemptive strike into the forbidden dimension known as the Deadside – a realm where magic trumps might and an eons-old war machine stands at arms, ready to penetrate our reality and upend the order of heaven and hell as we now know it…

“The essential Shadowman lore is that he’s a guy plagued by this loa, a dark demon that possesses him for better or worse, and it’s plagued his family for generations. He wants to be rid of this thing, and eventually, he gets captured by MI-6 and used as a sort of reluctant agent for good… [RAPTURE] is really showcasing Shadowman, who has been gone a long time – too long,” writer Matt Kindt told ComicBook.com. “The plan is to really re-introduce Shadowman and set him up in a way that will make him a more permanent fixture in the Valiant Universe and on comic shelves.”

On a scarred landscape, two otherworldly armies prepare to battle one last time, vying for control of a massive tower named from an ancient language no longer permitted to be spoken.

One army is led by a primeval force named Babel, whose goal is singular: to breach “heaven” no matter the cost. The only thing standing in his way is a gray-haired barbaric warrior, filled with rage and regret – a man who sees this battle as his last chance for redemption. But he knows his depleted forces have little chance of victory unless aid comes soon.

Enter Tama: A 12-year old girl on the crest of a hill overlooking the battle, who has just become humanity’s only hope. The last in an ancient line of mystics who protect the Earth, she has foreseen this battle and knows millions will perish if she’s unable to stop it. Now Tama and her ragtag team of malcontents – Ninjak, Shadowman and Punk Mambo – must somehow defeat an elder god hell bent on piercing the heavens.

In the game-changing footsteps of THE VALIANT and BLOODSHOT U.S.A., Valiant’s next shocking standalone event is here! On May 24th, Shadowman’s long-awaited return to the forefront of the Valiant Universe begins with a terrifying breach between two worlds, only in RAPTURE #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), Kano (Swamp Thing), and CAFU (Action Comics)!

Also in stores on May 24th: Don’t miss the next armor-plated issue of the landmark comics debut that Paste Magazine calls “a wartime epic for the ages” in X-O MANOWAR (2017) #3 – part three of “SOLDIER” from visionary writer Matt Kindt (Ninjak) and Valiant exclusive superstar Tomas Giorello (Bloodshot Reborn)!
