But who is this bleeding-edge commando unit – and what plans does their fiendishly familiar leader have in store for the universe’s most powerful weapon?

He survived NINJAK… He survived UNITY… But can X-O Manowar survive his first encounter with the all-new ARMORINES?

NYCC 2014: Valiant Debuts THE VALIANT #1 Animated Trailer, First Lettered Preview

A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin…

Valiant is proud to debut the official video trailer and first lettered interior preview for THE VALIANT #1 (of 4) – the all-new, prestige format limited series coming in December from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) & Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!

An entirely self-contained comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

In stores December 10th, THE VALIANT #1 is the first epic title of VALIANT NEXT – an all-new wave of ongoing series and prestige format projects from some of the premier creative talents in comics today. Beginning with THE VALIANT #1, VALIANT NEXT continues with five blockbuster new series in 2015:

  • IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1 by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry in January
  • DIVINITY #1 (of 4) by Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine in February
  • IMPERIUM #1 by Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite in February
  • NINJAK #1 by Matt Kindt and Clay Mann in March
  • BLOODSHOT REBORN #1 by Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan in April

Following the critically acclaimed, smash-hit success of VALIANT FIRST in 2014, VALIANT NEXT will present six new starting points perfect for readers new and old. Featuring an exciting selection of new series starring Valiant’s biggest, most-demanded heroes alongside all-new, never before seen characters, VALIANT NEXT is the NEXT epic evolution of Valiant’s best-selling, fan-favorite publishing line.

Now Woody is out to break up the all-new, all-different Quantum and Woody and put an end to Quantum’s recklessness…just as Quantum takes on a life-or-death personal mission for national security. Can these former friends set aside their differences…and their age…and their numerous health difficulties…to join forces one last time without driving each other crazy?

First Look: Milligan and LaRosa Lead Off BLOODSHOT #25 – A 48-Page Anniversary Blowout!

BLOOD_025_COVER-A_LAROSAValiant is proud to present an advance preview of BLOODSHOT #25 – a 48-page anniversary blowout featuring a murderer’s row of comics talents from throughout the bullet-riddled history of Valiant’s most brutal, most relentless hero!

Meet the man behind Bloodshot – or is he? – when one soldier’s untapped killer instinct takes over in “Bloodshot: Glitch” – a feature-sized lead tale of blood, guts, and heart by Peter Milligan (Hellblazer) and Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX)!

“With ‘Glitch,’ Peter has crafted a gripping, action-packed, and psychological take on Bloodshot – and Lewis’s pages have only made it that much more devastating,” said Bloodshot editor Alejandro Arbona. “This is Lewis’s first full-length interior work in almost a decade, and he spent the better part of a year just packing in as much detail and emotion as possible. It’s been well worth the wait, and when you see his artwork, you’ll see why.”

Plus: an all-new Bloodshot tale by comics master Howard Chaykin, and the original launch team of Duane Swierczynski and Manuel García return for a brand new adventure! And don’t miss the origin of Bloodshot retold, and even more stories and artwork from Justin Jordan (Spread), Rafer Roberts (X-O Manowar #25), and more, right here in this oversized 48-page giant!

BLOOD_025_COVER-B_BARRIONUEVO

Packed to the rafters with bonus features and artwork, including a complete cover gallery of Bloodshot’s exploits from 1993 to today, the BLOODSHOT #25 anniversary extravaganza also features standard covers by Lewis LaRosa and Al Barrionuevo; incentive variant covers by Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire) and Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates); and a new throwback variant featuring Bloodshot’s original logo and trade dress design by Bloodshot co-creator and comics legend Don Perlin (The Defenders).

Before Bloodshot steps front and center for the THE VALIANT #1 by Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera in December, Valiant’s most dangerous man-at-arms takes on his biggest assignment yet in BLOODSHOT #25 – arriving in stores on November 5th!

But when a big-time occultist with a classified military past hires her for a special job, Shan discovers a lead that might close the greatest mystery she’s ever tackled – how to get Hwen back. Now, Doctor Mirage must enter the undiscovered country and cross all the realms of the underworld, if she has any hope of rescuing the man she loves…or be forever lost beyond the earthly plane.
