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

XO_011_COVER_CRAIN-310x476

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!

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!

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.

Make Way, Bro – TORQUE is Coming Through in HARBINGER #8!

HAR_008_COVER_SUAYAN-310x476-1

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #8 – the next installment of the brand new, critically acclaimed “Renegades” storyline by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier) and fan favorite artist Lee Garbett (Batman: R.I.P.)! With Toyo Harada and the Harbinger Foundation in hot pursuit, Peter Stanchek and his band of outlaw superhuman runaways have just found their newest member. But can even the Renegades handle a wild card like the musclebound powerhouse called Torque?

In a shed in the backwoods of Northern Georgia lives a meek, sequestered teen named John Torkelson. Raised just this side of feral, and on a steady diet of MMA and reality TV, fried catfish and Cheeto pie, he’s a firm believer that women should be seen and not heard (though he really hasn’t met many). But when four strange, super-powered teenagers suddenly appear in the woods outside his shed, Torkelson’s life takes a turn he never could have imagined. Now the boy his poppa called “Stump” is about to become more man than he could ever imagine. But then…what exactly is a “real man”? For that matter, what’s a real hero? Only one thing’s certain, the Renegades are about to get a hell of a lot stronger.

Peter Stanchek. Kris Hathaway. Zephyr. Flamingo. There’s never been a team of super-powered teenagers quite like the Renegades. Now get ready for a whole new level of intensity when Torque hammers his way into the Valiant Universe on January 23rd – only in Harbinger #8! And ask your local retailer about this issue’s special incentive variant covers by Khari Evans (Carbon Grey) and Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Underwater Welder)!

To herald the brutal first collision of Harbinger and Bloodshot, each of these three entry points into the Valiant Universe will feature an interlocking Pullbox Exclusive Variant cover by Harbinger Wars artist and New York Times best-selling creator Clayton Henry!

“Valiant’s Pullbox cover program is designed to give our dedicated fans something special for supporting our ongoing series. Now, with Harbinger Wars gearing up to launch not only a standalone mini-series, but new story arcs in Harbinger and Bloodshot too, the time was right to try another first for Valiant – three interlocking Pullbox covers showcasing the true scope of the first crossover event for the new Valiant Universe,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce.

On April 3rd, pick up the first interlocking Harbinger Wars Pullbox Exclusive Variant as Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4) by Joshua Dysart, Duane Swierczysnki & Clayton Henry slams into stores! Two dozen highly volatile, untested and untrained teenage “harbingers” are breaking out of Project Rising Spirt and into the world. Now, with no guidance and no place to turn, these super-powered children have decided to forge their own future – and they’ll take it by any means necessary. But when they terrorize a major American metropolis, the children of GENERATION ZERO will find themselves in the middle of three-way firefight for the fate of the Valiant Universe. Bloodshot wants to train them. Toyo Harada wants to use them. And Peter Stanchek wants to set them free. Who will reach them first? And can anyone survive the all-out fury of the Harbinger Wars?

Then, follow the fallout with new standalone story arcs on April 10th in Harbinger #11 by Joshua Dysart & Khari Evans, and on April 17th in Bloodshot #10 by Duane Swierczynski & Barry Kitson.
