Retailer Advisory: Valiant’s Sold-Out Summer Event Rockets into Second Printings for 4001 A.D. #2, 4001 A.D.: X-O MANOWAR #1, and 4001 A.D.: BLOODSHOT #1

4001_002_SECOND-PRINTING_COVER_CRAINOn August 3rd, the most ambitious comic book event of the summer roars back into stores with new printings for three essential issues of 4001 A.D.!

Valiant proud to announce that three pivotal chapters of 4001 A.D. – the epic summer crossover event led by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (RAI) – have sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves worldwide on August 3rd with the 4001 A.D. #2 SECOND PRINTING, 4001 A.D.: X-O MANOWAR #1 SECOND PRINTING, and 4001 A.D.: BLOODSHOT #1 SECOND PRINTING!

Jump on board here as the comics event of year gets even bigger! First, Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain escalate Rai’s insurrection against the land he swore to protect in the in 4001 A.D. #2 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING! Rai is smashing headfirst into New Japan with his team of hardened rebels including the Eternal Warrior and a giant X-O Manowar mech-armor that’s been dormant for centuries! But when Father transforms New Japan into an impenetrable space dragon as a defense of last resort, what hopes will the united heroes of 4001 A.D. have of freeing the citizens of New Japan from Father’s brutal reign? Will Rai have to destroy New Japan…to save it?

Then, the future of the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes is revealed with two breathtaking, standalone visions of the future that is yet to come, beginning with the 4001 A.D.: X-O MANOWAR #1 SECOND PRINTING from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and acclaimed artist Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS)! How did the rise of Earth’s most powerful hero lead to humanity’s ultimate destruction? Just what was the War of the X-O Manowars…and how did its catastrophic fallout bring ruination and despair to a besieged planet? And why is the sacred extraterrestrial armor called Shanhara the one weapon Father fears more than any other? The answers to the pivotal questions behind Valiant’s planet-shaking summer event can be found right here!

And, finally, New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) bring Bloodshot barreling into the 41st century with an all-new, standalone tale at the epicenter of 4001 A.D., only in the 4001 A.D.: BLOODSHOT #1 SECOND PRINTING! Centuries ago, Bloodshot was the man called Ray Garrison. Now, in the year 4001 A.D., Ray Garrison is no more…but the nanites that once thrived inside him endure still. With their master long since gone, the microscopic machines that once drove Bloodshot through every firefight, healed every wound, and calculated every outcome have one final directive left to execute…but what could it possibly be? And how will the forces of the future react when the infamous man-turned-machine called Bloodshot returns to fight another day?

Comics Legend Colleen Doran Joins Valiant’s FAITH #1 – Skyrocketing into Stores in July!

FAITH_ONGOING_001_COVER-A_WADAOngoing Series Debut for 2016′s Breakout Hero Adds Legendary Artist for Special Origin Spotlight Alongside Jody Houser, Pere Perez & Marguerite Sauvage

As revealed at Vulture, Valiant is proud to announce that FAITH #1 – the much-anticipated ongoing series debut beginning “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” initiative on July 20th – has added Eisner and Harvey Award-winning artist Colleen Doran (The Sandman, A Distant Soil) and will grow to 40 pages for an all-new origin sequence introducing the history-making hero’s first monthly title! Doran joins the series’ ongoing creative team of rising star Jody Houser (Mother Panic, Orphan Black), Harvey Award nominee Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, Batgirl) and 2016 Russ Manning Award nominee Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells) for a special guest appearance retelling of Faith’s miraculous early life and origin – a perfect introduction for new readers wowed by Faith’s five-time sold-out limited series and subsequent spotlight-stealing appearances in major news outlets around the world!

“Colleen Doran is one of the most influential comic book artists of her generation and a true pioneer,” said FAITH Editor Tom Brennan. “Having her on board for the launch of FAITH #1 is an honor and speaks volumes about the importance that the character has taken on across the comics landscape in the short time since her solo debut early this year. Not only is her contribution to the inaugural issue a key one, but it’s a wonderful illustration of how and why Faith is a hero unlike any other in comics today.”

A 30-year veteran of the comics industry and a winner of the Eisner, Harvey and International Horror Guild awards, Colleen Doran has contributed to some of the most acclaimed titles in comics history, including The Sandman, Wonder Woman, Amazing Spider-Man, Legion of Super-Heroes, Teen Titans and many more. As the creator of A Distant Soil, Doran wrote and illustrated one of the industry’s longest running and most revered creator-owned series. In the intervening years, she worked on a number of prominent projects in and out of the superhero genre, including Orbiter with writer Warren Ellis, Mangaman with writer Barry Lyga, Gone to Amerikay with writer Derek McCulloch, and The Book of Lost Souls with writer J. Michael Straczynski. Her latest work, the graphic novel Troll Bridge – adapted from the short story by Neil Gaiman – will be released in October by Dark Horse. FAITH #1 is her first work for Valiant Entertainment.

In a city under siege by robots, aliens, monsters and even worse… celebrities, there is only one woman the people of Los Angeles can count on: the stratospheric superhero called Faith! Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence – like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe…and could they just be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?

THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” starts here on July 20th with the landmark first ongoing series for the breakout hero of the year, only in FAITH #1 – featuring a stunning slate of covers from Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Eisner Award winner Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Emanuela Lupacchino (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Harvey Award nominee Pere Perez (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), Kano (Gotham Central), and Eisner Award winner Colleen Coover (Bandette)!

Created by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter (Secret Wars) and Eisner Award-winning writer and artist David Lapham (Stray Bullets) in the pages of Valiant’s acclaimed HARBINGER series in 1992, Faith has long been a central icon of Valiant’s award-winning publishing line. Then, in January 2016, the character took her long-awaited, much-demanded first step toward solo stardom with a groundbreaking limited series that quickly became the first and biggest breakout hit of the New Year from any major comics publisher. In the weeks and months since, Faith’s solo debut has garnered near-universal critical acclaim; generated attention from some of the world’s biggest media outlets including the Atlantic, the A.V. Club, the BBC, Cosmopolitan, Gizmodo, the Guardian, the Huffington Post, MTV, the New York Times, NPR, People, Seventeen, Today, Vox, the Washington Post, and dozens more; and become the first series of 2016 to reach a much-vaunted fifth printing – making it one of only a handful of hit series in the past decade to achieve that pivotal benchmark of fan and commercial demand.

Now, on July 20th, Faith’s runaway success is set to continue with the all-new FAITH #1 – from the all-star creative team of Jody Houser, Pere Perez, Marguerite Sauvage and Colleen Doran!

Then, in the wake of FAITH #1, “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” continues with an all-new wave of ongoing series, prestige format projects, and standalone events from a star-studded roster of some of comics’ most visionary talents! Beginning in July with FAITH #1, “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” will extend throughout 2016 with a total of seven epic series – each introducing an innovative array of new concepts and characters…and firmly establishing Valiant’s place as the premier publisher of creative storytelling in comics today:

Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior, has sacrificed his humanity for the betterment of the Earth. Empowered with the gift to recover from any wound – and even death itself – he has waged an endless crusade to guide the path of civilization through the ages.

Now, the Eternal Warrior will be presented with a choice that could end his grief forever. An opportunity to resurrect the fallen sons and daughters that he believed forever lost. But this chance for peace and happiness will come at a terrible cost… and in service to an evil far greater than any Gilad has faced before…

Cover by JELENA KEVIC-DJURDJEVIC

The much-anticipated follow-up to the five-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the “Best New Superhero of 2015” is here!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther into space than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something unknown… Something that changed them.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with seemingly limitless power at his fingertips, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never had a chance to meet.

Now, Myshka, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth…but, unlike Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.

First Look: Comics Legend Ryan Sook Covers Valiant’s Blockbuster Event with 4001 A.D. Interlocking Artist Variants!

4001_INTERLOCKING-ARTIST-FINAL_SOOKConnecting Each Chapter of this Year’s Blockbuster Series, Valiant’s Greatest Heroes and Villains Converge in an Epic Tapestry Spanning Across All Four Issues of 4001 A.D.!

Valiant is proud to present your first look at the 4001 A.D. INTERLOCKING ARTIST VARIANTS – an epic new series of covers by superstar artist Ryan Sook (Wednesday Comics, Seven Soldiers: Zatanna) uniting all four issues of the year’s most ambitious comics event! Extending across 4001 A.D. #1-#4 (of 4) by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) and blockbuster artist Clayton Crain (Carnage), see Rai and the future heroes of the Valiant Universe assembled here with a breath-taking, widescreen vision of the 41st century’s star-crossed battle against Father and the forces of New Japan!

It all starts here on May 4th in 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new, standalone event series following Rai and the 41st century’s most formidable heroes into the fight against New Japan from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artists Clayton Crain and David Mack (Daredevil)!

One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people can thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below. Over the centuries, as New Japan orbits our increasingly unstable world, it will become a model society – one built on peace, prosperity…and Father’s control.

A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan’s justice well…and serve Father without question.

Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister secret at the heart of Father’s existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father’s kingdom…

Exiled from the only realm he’s ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself…on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth.

Cover by JELENA KEVIC-DJURDJEVIC

Valiant’s most-demanded hero steps out of HARBINGER…and into an all-new adventure!

Orphaned at a young age, Faith Herbert – a psionically gifted “psiot” discovered by the Harbinger Foundation – has always aspired to greatness. But now this once ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws into her harms way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the skysoaring Zephyr!

But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought when Zephyr uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy. Two-bit burglars and car thieves are one thing, but when the world needs a hero to stave off a full-blown extraterrestrial invasion, will Faith find herself in over her head…or ready for her biggest challenge yet?

Rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells) pilot a new chapter for the high-flying hero that People Magazine calls “a superhero we can all admire.”
