“BLOODSHOT ISLAND” sails into the sunset with a sanguine-stained epilogue!

Ray Garrison and a battered team of survivors have made their escape from BLOODSHOT ISLAND…only to drift straight into shark-infested waters! Marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with no defenses except the relentless will to survive, will the highly trained team of killers aboard this life raft band together…or throw each other to the prehistoric predators below? And, if they don’t kill each other first, will mother nature finish the job?’’

With “BLOODSHOT USA” on the horizon, it’s time to sink or swim as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight) and rising star Tomas Giorello (Batman & Robin) toss Valiant’s band of nanite-fueled soldiers into the deep end!

America’s most bizarre Big Top has a brand new attraction!

Archer & Armstrong. Fearless adventurers. Best friends. Better partners. But that was before this traveling circus made them prisoners of a sideshow so freakish, it makes Davey the Mackerel look like the girl next door! Now captives beneath the world’s maddest midway, our fearless(ish) heroes are just steps from the final clue to locating Armstrong’s long-lost wife… Too bad there’s a literally “small” army of deranged and dangerous Armstrong clones protecting it with all of their miniature might! Meanwhile: Mary-Maria must confront the one force capable of putting her in her place – the Council of Elders! And whatever happened to Davey, anyway?

Come for the popcorn and stay for the mad science gone awry as rising star Rafer Roberts (HARBINGER RENEGADES) and Eisner Award-winning artist Mike Norton (Revival) bring “NEXT STOP CLOWNTOWN” roaring into a city near you!

First Look: Eisner Award Winner Colleen Doran Joins Valiant’s X-O MANOWAR #50 Anniversary Milestone


XO_050_VARIANT_DORANPlus: Go Inside Year’s Biggest Series Finale with First Lettered Preview of X-O Manowar’s 64-Page Farewell

For the first time anywhere, Valiant is proud to reveal that Eisner Award-winning artist Colleen Doran – best known for work on some of comics’ most acclaimed series including The Sandman, Wonder Woman, and, most recently, FAITH – will contribute an all-new cover to X–O MANOWAR #50, the massive 64-page anniversary milestone arriving in stores this September! Springing off her Valiant debut in the pages of July’s FAITH #1, Doran joins a formidable roster of comics all-stars – including New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps), X-O MANOWAR visionaries Cary Nord (Conan), Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Rafa Sandoval (Green Lantern), and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), series artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil), and special guest stars galore – for Valiant’s biggest blockbuster milestone of all time!

Since debuting in 1992, X-O Manowar has sold more than 8 million copies and featured work by a distinguished roster of comics luminaries including current Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter, and comics legends Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton.

Two decades later, as the lead title of “THE SUMMER OF VALIANT” relaunch in 2012, X-O MANOWAR #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord firmly established the Valiant resurgence with four sold-out printings and the single highest sales for any new comics publisher in more than a decade. With a single run totaling 56 issues, X-O MANOWAR has gone on to become one of the longest running superhero series of the modern era, earn a multitude of awards, nominations and critical accolades from some of the industry’s most prestigious outlets, and form the backbone of Valiant’s superhero universe along the way. Now, join one of the greatest legends in comic book history as Aric of Dacia faces his deadliest test yet…in the colossal X-O MANOWAR #50 anniversary milestone!

For centuries, the sacred X-O Manowar armor has stood unrivaled as the universe’s most powerful weapon. Today, will it equal Earth’s doom? An unthinkable alien race known only as The Torment has come to our world in search of the armor’s secrets. Now, they stand opposed by Aric of Dacia – former slave, noble warrior, resolute king, and current master of the armor’s near-limitless capabilities. But is one man…and one weapon…enough to repel a force capable of leveling a thousand civilizations?

First: the seismic final story arc, “LONG LIVE THE KING,” goes out in a world-shaking blaze of glory with longtime scribe Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps) and extraordinary artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil) manning the front line, alongside an all-star battalion of artists from across X-O MANOWAR‘s landmark 56-issue run: Cary Nord (Conan), Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Rafa Sandoval (Green Lantern), and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH)!

Chronicling X-O Manowar’s five-year-long impact on the people of Earth, and setting the stage for galaxy-spanning adventures yet to come in 2017 and beyond, no comic book fan can afford to miss the ultimate cosmic battle for the fate of Valiant’s most powerful hero!

Plus: Valiant is marking 50 epic issues with a formidable line-up of covers from an all-star cast of comics greats! Leading the charge is the X-O MANOWAR #50 All-Star Jam Cover – the biggest-ever jam cover in comics history, featuring 50 major comics talents in celebration of 50 issues for Valiant’s flagship series! Debuting as X-O MANOWAR #50‘s standard shelf cover, this never-before-attempted comics breakthrough features a breathtaking collection of top talents as they each deliver an all-new take on Valiant’s leading hero in their own signature style.

On September 28th, get a front row seat as comics legend Colleen Doran joins a staggering celebration of the past and future of Valiant’s most powerful hero in the 64-page X-O MANOWAR #50 anniversary milestone – also featuring covers by Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT), Marko Djurdjevic (Avengers), Marcos Martin (The Private Eye), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie), Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One), Pere Perez (FAITH), Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals), Philip Tan (Batman & Robin), Kaare Andrews (Astonishing X-Men), and Phil Jimenez (DC Universe: Rebirth)!

FAITH_OG_001_COVER-SECOND-PRINTING_WADA2016′s Most Successful Independent Superhero Debut Reaches New Readers in Local Comic Shops with Unprecedented Second Printing

As revealed today during the Diamond Retailer Summit at Comic-Con International 2016 in San Diego, Valiant is proud to announce that FAITH #1 – the highest selling independent superhero series debut of the year and the launch title of “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” initiative – has sold out at the distributor level just days after its July 20th on-sale date.

To celebrate the series’ landmark debut and satisfy an unprecedented degree of fan and retailer demand, Valiant revealed today that it will be shipping 100,000 complimentary copies of a new FAITH #1 SECOND PRINTING to participating comic shops in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Set to arrive on August 24th alongside FAITH #2 and GENERATION ZERO #1, these complimentary copies of the 48-page FAITH #1 SECOND PRINTING will carry a cover price of $2.99 and come shrink-wrapped in individually bundled units of 20. Retailers are encouraged to rack their copies with the week’s new releases, discount them at a promotional rate, or even give them away so that new readers can discover the wildly popular series that has taken fans and retailers by storm!

Packed with content at a colossal 48 pages, the FAITH #1 SECOND PRINTING features the beginning of Faith’s first ongoing series – as told by acclaimed writer Jody Houser (Orphan Black), stratospheric interior artists Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells), and Colleen Doran (The Sandman), and sensational cover artist Kevin Wada (She-Hulk)! But that’s not all!

Each copy of the FAITH #1 SECOND PRINTING doubles as an early look ahead at Valiant’s biggest year yet with “THE FUTURE OF VALIANTSNEAK PREVIEW flip book – spotlighting an all-new wave of ongoing series, prestige format projects and standalone events from the largest independent superhero universe anywhere in comics! Officially kicking off in the pages of 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:

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 be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?

Created by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter (Secret Wars) and Eisner Award-winning writer and artist David Lapham (Stray Bullets) in 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, Faith took her long-awaited, much-demanded first step toward solo stardom with FAITH #1 (of 4) – a groundbreaking debut that quickly became the first and biggest breakout hit of the New Year from any major comics publisher. In the months since, Faith’s first solo adventure has garnered near-universal critical acclaim; generated attention from a host of international media outlets, including The Atlantic, The A.V. Club, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, The Independent, MTV, The New York Times, NPR, PBS Newshour, 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.

Then, Faith’s streak of unprecedented achievements hit a new high with the freshly sold-out FAITH #1 – a first issue that has already rocketed onward to become the highest selling superhero debut of the year from any independent publisher in the industry today.

Finally, on November 2nd, just days before Election Day 2016, Faith will be taking her next giant leap forward in FAITH #5 – a history-making, 48-page election special teaming the leading female hero in comics today with Hillary Clinton, the first female nominee from a major political party, for a special tale written by comics legend Louise Simonson with art by FAITH‘s own Pere Perez! Join an all-star cast of Valiant’s greatest talents on November 2nd in FAITH #5 as the leading heroine in comics today joins forces with Hillary Clinton for a landmark comics event!

Classified No More! Valiant Reveals First Look Inside 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – Coming in August!

4001-WARMOTHER_001_COVER-A_MACKAt long last, Valiant is proud to present your first look inside 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – an all-new, self-contained one-shot exploding out of the pages of the summer’s most ambitious crossover event and launching a major new character into the future of the Valiant Universe! First announced as a top-secret first appearance spinning out of Valiant’s acclaimed 4001 A.D. event, War Mother steps out of a highly speculated-upon cameo in last summer’s best-selling BOOK OF DEATH…and into her armor-piercing full-length debut right here on August 3rd when New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (IVAR, TIMEWALKER) and spectacular rising star Tomás Giorello (Conan) introduce the 41st century’s most formidable fighter!

Now, after months of speculation, Valiant can now showcase the devastating world of 41st century Earth that War Mother inhabits…and reveal that artist Tomás Giorello is the latest high-caliber talent to join Valiant’s star-studded roster of exclusive creators.

After making his Valiant debut as the lead cover artist for BLOODSHOT REBORN‘s current “BLOODSHOT ISLAND” storyline, Giorello’s first full-length interior work for the award-winning publisher finally arrives in 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – a much anticipated debut that will force War Mother out of the tribe she was born to protect…and onto the front lines of the Valiant Universe alongside Earth’s most powerful heroes of this millennia or the next!

In the 41st century, much of the planet has been reduced to a barren wasteland. New Japan orbits the Earth as a floating oasis that towers over the ashes of the old world. The survivors of this desolate new age, robbed of the planet’s once-lush natural resources, must endure great hardships to survive. Amidst the devastation, one outpost of scientific knowledge has thrived by adhering to a strict code of isolation. But even the denizens of this walled city must venture out into the wasteland to gather supplies from the remnants of what was. This task is designated to one and one alone: War Mother.

But all is not peaceful, even in New Japan. When the space-faring empire begins jettisoning city-sized sectors to Earth during the onset of a civil war, War Mother is called upon with a new mission: mega-salvage! Armed with a newly born sentient sniper rifle, War Mother is a one-woman army bent on sacking the crash-landed sector’s technology-laden debris for anything of value to her tribe. But, as calm turns to chaos, Sector 8146 will reveal a telling secret about Earth’s true order that will collide War Mother against her community, her code, and her calling…and bring destruction down upon one of humanity’s last surviving outposts of order.

Giorello’s previous credits include multiple Conan and Star Wars series for Dark Horse, as well as Batman & Robin, Green Lantern: New Guardians, and Superman/Batman for DC Entertainment. As the latest artist to join Valiant’s stable of exclusive talents, Giorello is the next addition to an acclaimed line-up of Valiant-exclusive creators that also includes Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR), David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Doug Braithwaite (BLOODSHOT U.S.A.), CAFU (RAI), Khari Evans (HARBINGER), Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY II), Clayton Henry (SAVAGE), David Lafuente (A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Lewis LaRosa (SAVAGE), Pere Perez (FAITH), Brian Reber (4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER), Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA), and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN).

Giorello’s next project will be an all-new contribution alongside New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) to September’s 64-page X-O MANOWAR #50 anniversary special – a blockbuster-style tribute to the vaunted, 56-issue run that set the Valiant Universe in motion! On September 28th, Valiant’s greatest hero assemble to salute X-O Manowar’s unparalleled impact as one of the longest running superhero series in comics today with all-new, never-before-seen tales and tributes from New York Times best-selling writer and longtime scribe Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps) alongside stunning artists Joe Bennett (52), Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil), Cary Nord (Conan), Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Rafa Sandoval (Green Lantern), and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH); plus Jody Houser (FAITH) & Javier Pulido (Amazing Spider-Man); Philip Tan (Suicide Squad), and many more.
