FAITH BEGINS! 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 sky-soaring 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 Valiant’s high-flying hero right here in Faith’s first-ever limited series!

ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! WHO OR WHAT IS…“THE ANALOG MAN”?

Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland and the once unstoppable killing machine known as BLOODSHOT has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot’s taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life – Magic – and protecting a group of stragglers who’ve weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement’s survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Universe!

Blockbuster artist Lewis LaRosa joins New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire for a gasoline-soaked storyline two years in the making right here for “THE ANALOG MAN”!

Retailer Advisory: Valiant’s FAITH #1 Soars into Advance Sell-Out; Retailers to Receive Bonus Second Printing in Stores Alongside First

FAITH_001_COVER_SECOND-PRINTINGValiant is proud to announce that FAITH #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the long-awaited solo series debut for the breakout star of HARBINGER – has sold out at the distributor level in advance of its January 27th street date and will immediately return to store shelves with the FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING.

To meet surging demand for Faith’s solo series debut on the heels of mainstream recognition by a diverse array of media outlets including The A.V. Club, Bustle, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, MTV, People, Seventeen, The Washington Post, Vox, and many more, Valiant is providing participating retailers with a complimentary overship of the FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING that will arrive in stores alongside the issue’s first, sold-out edition just in time for the title’s January 27th on-sale date.

“Even before the first issue has hit stores, FAITH #1 has managed to over-perform on nearly every level,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “From story to accessibility on down, this is a perfect, new-reader-friendly first issue that wonderfully illustrates why Valiant’s brand of storytelling continues to accrue praise from all corners of the industry. To that end, we want to ensure that retailers nationwide are ready to accommodate readers looking for Valiant’s latest hit #1 title on January 27th, and this unique second printing overship is designed to do just that.”

Retailers will receive their bonus copies of the FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING in 50% proportion to their orders of the FAITH #1 (of 4) – Cover A by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic. Further copies of the FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING have also been made available through Diamond code: DEC158001.

Written by rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) with artwork by explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells), FAITH #1 (of 4) is the first-ever solo series for Faith “Zephyr” Herbert – the high-flying heart and soul of Valiant’s acclaimed HARBINGER series. Since her first appearance in 1992, Faith has stood the test of time as one of the most unique characters anywhere in comics – a starry-eyed superhero cut from the same comic-loving cloth as her fans around the world. Now, on January 27th, Faith is charging to the forefront of the Valiant Universe for blockbuster-scale adventure packed with spectacular superhero action, alien intrigue, and global stakes!

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 her into harm’s 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 sky-soaring Zephyr!

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?

Faith is flying high! On January 27th, Jody Houser, Francis Portela and Marguerite Sauvage lift off for one of 2016’s most anticipated new series, only in FAITH #1 (of 4) – arriving in stores alongside FAITH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING!

In time, even the dead may die…and, now, after multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with an all-new adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)!

Occult investigators Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives in the thrall of an epic love that few will ever have…until Hwen died tragically before his time. Now, after a perilous trip through the underworld, Shan and Hwen are reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spellbook or even touching his wife.

Their options exhausted, the death-defying Doctors Mirage are about to enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen’s solid form…and grant his ghost a second life. But, in the wrong hands, their ancient rite will become a tool of terror – and unleash a force of pure, homicidal evil that lusts for the murder of the living and the dead alike… a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!

First Look: Valiant’s FAITH #1 Flies into the Spotlight at People, Seventeen, MTV, Mashable and More!

FAITH_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICValiant is proud to present the first look inside FAITH #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the stratospheric new limited series from rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and explosive artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells)! Featuring the breakout star of HARBINGER in her first-ever solo adventure, Valiant’s high-flying, high-spirited super-heroine is already stealing the spotlight with mainstream recognition by People Magazine, The Washington Post, MTV, Seventeen Magazine, Mashable, Mic, and many more…months ahead of FAITH #1 (of 4)’s January 27th debut!

“I’ve been hearing from women who are in their 20s and 30s and 40s who have been reading comics for decades who have never seen a woman on the cover of a comic that looks like them,” series writer Jody Houser told People. “And I think [Faith] makes people feel like they’re welcome in comics, and that this medium is for them, when, maybe they’ve always loved comics but they haven’t felt welcome before is a huge thing.”

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 sky-soaring Zephyr!

But flying solo is going to be tougher than Zephyr ever thought when she uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy.

An evil Geomancer has torn the world asunder… The dark puppet master pulling the strings has been unmasked… And the Valiant Universe as we know it is being torn apart… The end is here!

Now, not even the combined might of the Valiant’s best and brightest can avert the coming apocalypse – not without a sacrifice, that is. Who will pay the ultimate price to avoid the Armageddon promised in the pages of the Book of the Geomancer? And how will it irrevocably change the course of Valiant Universe?

All the answers are here in the climactic final chapter by longtime Valiant scribe Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) and all-star artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY)! So let it be written… So let it be done!

NYCC 2015: Valiant and CGC Team for VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT SERIES – A Fun-Filled New Line of Reproduction Covers “Encasing” Your Favorite Heroes in 2016!

VALIANTxCGC_PROMO_finalAs revealed today at New York Comic-Con 2015, Valiant Entertainment and the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) are proud to announce an all-new, first-of-its-kind collaboration…the VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT SERIES!

Beginning in January 2016 and continuing throughout the year, Valiant’s most high-profile new releases will debut with VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANTS – the first in a fun-filled new line of shelf covers spotlighting the heroes of the Valiant Universe in printed reproductions of CGC’s trademark grading cases…and capturing their thoughts in the process! Featuring the artwork of New York Times best-selling creator and Valiant superstar Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, HARBINGER WARS), each VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT will feature an ink-on-paper reproduction of a CGC “slab” with a different Valiant hero preserved for posterity!

“Everyone at Valiant is a huge fan of CGC, and this collaboration, frankly, was too much fun to pass up,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “We’re always looking for outside-the-box ideas to catch the eye of new readers, and believe us when we say that each of these covers is going to come loaded with detail by the time they hit shelves. From the credits to the grades assigned to each title and even a bit of fourth wall-breaking dialogue, everyone involved is simply having a ball bringing these covers to life, and Clayton Henry is outdoing himself with each and every one.”

“CGC is always looking for new and innovative ways to work with publishers in the industry. Valiant’s approach to incorporate our product and service into comic books themselves presented a wonderful opportunity for us to reach fans in a new way,” said CGC Director of Operations Harshen Patel.

Beginning with the debut of the FAITH #1 (of 4) VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT in stores January 2016, each VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT will be available for retailers to order in unlimited quantities and will be made available at Valiant’s standard suggested retail price.

Printed on Valiant’s standard paper stock, the VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANTS are for entertainment purposes only and will not come graded or encased in plastic. Furthermore, the grades assigned on the printed copies of each VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT may not be representative of the issue’s actual physical condition.
