First Look: Russia’s Reign Endures in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #2 and DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – Coming in January!

DIVINITY-III_002_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICPlus: The Event-Level Epic’s Shocking Debut Returns with DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 SECOND PRINTING!

Valiant is proud to announce that DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s shocking, event-level blockbuster from the best-selling creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary), has sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves with the DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE SECOND PRINTING on FEBRUARY 1st!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

“It’s the ultimate “what-if” scenario,” series writer Matt Kindt told Entertainment Weekly. “And I think casting these heroes in the red light of a Soviet-controlled Earth doesn’t change the characters so much as it allows us to really see what makes the characters tick. What’s at their core? What is their purpose?”

Then, the event-level blockbuster of the season continues in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #2 (of 4) and DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1! This January, Russia rules the New Year as the Valiant Universe continues its transformation into a Soviet-ruled super-state…one where the world’s most powerful heroes now serve and protect the Motherland from all threats to the USSR’s global Iron Empire!

On January 18th, X-O Manowar becomes the guardian of the CCCP in ARIC: SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – the next essential standalone epic torn straight from the heart of the Stalinverse! Acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall) and powerhouse artist CAFU (Ninjak) present a star-shattering tale of sins, secrets, and tragedy for the worldwide hero of the communist state: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION!

From bustling urban centers to the collective farms of the countryside, men, women, and children alike all idolize the same hero of the global Soviet republic: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION! Returned to Earth from the stars with the ultimate nuclear deterrent – the indestructible X-O Manowar armor – the champion of socialism has singlehandedly consolidated the state’s military and political superiority at home and abroad. But when a surprise attack from the Deadside shines an untoward light on the modern-day Soviet Union’s darkest secret, will Aric pursue his mission…or uphold justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

Then, on January 25th, the Valiant Universe as we know it rages on in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #2 (of 4)! Bear witness to the Valiant Universe’s sadistic new status quo as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and superstar artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis) plunge Valiant’s new world order into a blood-red rebellion!

Welcome to the year 2017…where the Soviet Union has spent decades as the world’s reigning superpower and the Iron Curtain now encircles a planet riddled with war, strife, and oppression. Freedom is a thing of the past in the Stalinverse… So why can’t Russian intelligence officer Colin King shake the feeling that something has gone terribly wrong? He’ll put his freedom and life on the line to uncover the truth… Even if that means finding out whatever happened to the long-missing cosmonaut Abram Adams – the one man who just might hold the key to unraveling the dystopian world of today…

Rahal & Portela Lead the Stalinverse’s Greatest Criminals in DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1 – Coming in March!

DIV3-GULAG_001_COVER-A_GORHAMThis March, prepare to serve time with the Stalinverse’s newest enemies of the state: Archer & Armstrong!

As revealed at ComicsAlliance, Valiant is proud to announce DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1 – the next can’t-miss one-shot special torn from the pages of the winter’s visionary comics event! On March 15th, join rising star Eliot Rahal (The Paybacks, The Door Man) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (Faith) as they sentence religious zealot Obadiah Archer and the unkillable libertine called Armstrong to a fate worse than death: A lifetime sentence in Gulag 396, the deadliest prison known to man. But in letting these two subversive criminal offenders into its walls, has this oppressive Gulag condemned Archer and Armstrong…or itself?

In the Soviet-controlled world of the Stalinverse, there is a place where liberty is sentenced to die…and it’s Gulag 396. A maximum-security prison where the only escape is through death, the gulag is the final stop for all enemies and detractors of the world’s oppressive authority. But when public enemy Obadiah Archer is admitted as the latest inmate, could his gospel of goodwill and optimism be the spark that ignites a new faith in the prison’s population…including the immortal undesirable known as Aram Addi-Padda?

On March 15th, be there as Archer and Armstrong challenge Valiant’s violent new reality with a spirit-shaking, standalone tale that will rattle the very soul of the Stalinverse, only in DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1 – featuring covers by Adam Gorham (The Violent), Khari Evans (Ninjak), Andres Guinaldo (Nightwing), Ryan Lee (Inhuman) and Kano (Daredevil)!

But first… It all begins on December 21st as the Iron Curtain rises over a once-free world in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary)!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

Then: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with the first of four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) on December 28th as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1!

Next, on January 18th, join the cause of Soviet righteousness as Valiant’s leading legend – the unstoppable X-O Manowar – becomes the supreme fighting force of the CCCP in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 from acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall, The X-Files: Season 10) and Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)!

Plus, a new kind of hero will rise on February 8th when rising star Scott Bryan Wilson (Batman Annual) and blockbuster artist Robert Gill (Book of Death) summon the Deadside with Shadowman in DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN & THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1!

DIV3-GULAG_001_COVER-B_EVANS

First Look: X-O Manowar Smashes the Stalinverse in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – Coming in January!

DIV3-ARIC_001_COVER-A_CRAINThis January, in the wake of the Stalinverse’s stealth takeover of the world we once knew, Valiant’s leading legend is about to become the CCCP’s greatest weapon!

Valiant is proud to present your first look at DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – the next essential special ripped from the pages of this winter’s visionary comics event! On January 18th, join acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall) and explosive artist CAFU (Rai) as they present the tragic new origin of the hero we once celebrated as X-O Manowar…and reveal his righteous place in the Stalinverse’s twisted new world order! In 2012, a man from the stars crash-landed into the Soviet-ruled territory of Romania. Wielding an extraterrestrial weapon of immense power, the Visigoth warrior known as Aric soon found himself conscripted by the military forces of the global Communist regime – a force that he now serves without question. With a past as mysterious as his power, Aric, Son of the Revolution now fights to protect the worldwide Soviet Union from threats foreign and domestic…and himself from the dark past that now threatens to undercut his very humanity itself!

From bustling urban centers to the collective farms of the countryside, men, women, and children alike all idolize the same hero of the global Soviet republic: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION! Returned to Earth from the stars with the ultimate nuclear deterrent – the indestructible X-O Manowar armor – the champion of socialism has singlehandedly consolidated the state’s military and political superiority at home and abroad. But when a surprise attack from the Deadside shines an untoward light on the modern-day Soviet Union’s darkest secret, will Aric pursue his mission…or uphold justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

On January 18th, X-O Manowar explodes out of the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE and into his own armor-annihilating adventure through Valiant’s brutal new status quo! A star-shattering tale of sins, secrets, and tragedy await the global hero of the worldwide Communist state as Joe Harris and CAFU seize the Stalinverse, only in DIVINTIY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Diego Bernard (X-O Manowar), CAFU (Imperium), Trevor Hairsine (Divinity II), and Kano (Daredevil)!

But first… It all begins on December 21st as the Iron Curtain rises over a once-free world in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary)!

BRITANNIA_003_SECOND PRINT_COVER_NORDAfter multiple printings for its first two issues, Valiant’s magnum opus marches into another sold-out printing!

On the fringes of civilization, the world’s first detective is about to make an unholy discovery…

At the height of Nero’s reign, a veteran of Rome’s imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings… In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia – the First Detective – will become Rome’s only hope to reassert control over the empire’s most barbaric frontier…and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay…

With sold-out printings and unmatched praise for every issue, BRITANNIA is an instant classic that no fan can miss!

Cold world war!

Welcome to the year 2017…where the Soviet Union has spent decades as the world’s reigning superpower and the Iron Curtain now encircles a planet riddled with war, strife, and oppression. Freedom is a thing of the past in the Stalinverse… So why can’t Russian intelligence officer Colin King shake the feeling that something has gone terribly wrong? He’ll put his freedom and life on the line to uncover the truth… Even if that means finding out whatever happened to the long-missing cosmonaut Abram Adams – the one man who just might hold the key to unraveling the dystopian world of today…

This is no alternate reality… This is the Valiant Universe as we know it and, soon, New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY II) will lead Valiant’s event-level epic to the architect behind this new world order!

Ready…Set…Riot!

Years ago, the children of the experimental strike team known as GenerationZero were taken from their families by Project Rising Spirit, a private weapons contractor, and raised to be psychic soldiers. After years of taking orders, they have fought for and won their freedom.

Now, the world’s most wanted teenagers have pledged to protect each other tooth and claw, while using their extraordinary abilities to right wrongs for a generation without a future… To fight for kids, just like them.

One of those kids is Keisha Sherman, whose boyfriend just turned up dead after a suspicious car crash in Rook, Michigan – a newly booming tech town that sprang from rags to superriches seemingly overnight. When Keisha makes a desperate plea into her webcam, the local high school suddenly finds itself with several unusual new students… But as word of Generation Zero’s presence spreads rapidly through the halls, this volatile band of teenage upstarts is about to discover that they’re far from the most extraordinary thing lurking behind Rook’s stainless-steel facade…

New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, Amazing Spider-Man) and blockbuster artist Francis Portela (FAITH) launch four highly specialized superhuman soldiers into their most dangerous mission yet: high school!

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!

First Look: FAITH #2 – The Most Successful Independent Superhero Series of 2016 Hits New Heights in August!

FAITH_002_COVER-A_WADAThis summer, the hottest hero in comics is going head-to-head with her very first super-villain!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of FAITH #2 – the stratospheric second chapter of “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT“‘s smash-hit ongoing series from rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black, Mother Panic) and sensational artists Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells)! From international headlines to multiple sold-out copies and universal critical praise, Faith Herbert has conquered it all. Now, she faces her greatest challenge yet in the form of an up-and-coming super-villain with a serious axe to grind! Imprisoned in the grand design of her arch-nemesis’ deceit, Faith’s superhero headaches are about to begin in full force…as her secret identity is put on the line!

Trapped with no aid in sight, Faith is coming face to face with her very-first super-villain! L.A.’s own sky-soaring hero always wanted to be like the comic book characters that inspired her…but is she ready to deal with the consequences of being a bonafide superhero? And, as if one new challenger weren’t enough, a shadowy figure is closing in on Faith’s private life and the truth about Summer Smith, her secret alter ego! How’s that for a cliffhanger?!
