In the aftermath of a horrible tragedy, Aric is trapped between the two worlds he’s sworn to protect. As X-O Manowar, he has made it his mission to protect the Vine’s mass of alien refugees…but his people want them dead…and G.A.T.E. wants them gone! Now, an old enemy will attack Aric at his weakest moment – and the Earth may pay an impossible price for Aric’s loyalty.

EXODUS unleashes a monumental new chapter as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern) and Rafa Sandoval (X-Men: Legacy) continue the series-defining X-O Manowar epic of the year!

Valiant New Printing Alert: BLOODSHOT REBORN #4 | BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – Back in Stores in September!

BSRB_005_COVER_SECOND-PRINTINGValiant is proud to announce that BLOODSHOT REBORN #4 and BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – the latest chapters of New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire‘s acclaimed new ongoing series – have sold out at the distributor level and will return in September with the BLOODSHOT REBORN #4 SECOND PRINTING and BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 SECOND PRINTING! Featuring artwork by visionary artists Mico Suayan (HARBINGER WARS) and Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR), Bloodshot’s crusade to stop a band of doppelgängers molded in his own image continues here with two essential chapters of one of the year’s most acclaimed new series!

First, Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan bring the synapse-shattering first act of Bloodshot’s return to a knockout conclusion in the BLOODSHOT REBORN #4 SECOND PRINTING! Bloodshot is hot on the trail of another mysterious mass-murderer – but with each nanite-infected killer Bloodshot confronts, he loses more of his humanity, but with killers wreaking havoc across Colorado, does he have a choice?

Then, breakout talent Raúl Allén joins Jeff Lemire for a special standalone tale of Bloodshot’s psychotic cartoon sidekick, Bloodsquirt, in the BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 SECOND PRINTING! The memories of the thousands of people he killed as Bloodshot aren’t the only things that haunt Ray Garrison. For months now, the specter of the Geomancer and a nightmarish figment called Bloodsquirt have tormented him at every turn. First, on his television…and now in the real world…where Bloodsquirt acts out twisted fantasies that darkly mirror Bloodshot’s own violent past. Are these apparitions real or a just figment of Bloodshot’s broken psyche? And what could Bloodsquirt possibly be planning next?

Contact your local retailer and use the order codes listed below to reserve your copies of these essential chapters of Bloodshot’s bullet-riddled return to the Valiant Universe!

First Look: Master Darque Brings Down the Darkness in BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4) – Coming in September!

BOD_003_COVER-A_NORDValiant is proud to present an advance preview of BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4) – the next 40-page chapter of Valiant’s smash-hit summer event! On September 23rd, New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and blockbuster artists Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) reveal the sinister mastermind behind the events foretold in the Geomancer’s book as Master Darque descends on the Valiant Universe! History’s most powerful necromancer has returned with a powerful new ally at his side…and if he can’t manipulate the Eternal Warrior and new Geomancer into joining him, he’ll destroy human civilization instead!

As the terrible future chronicled in the Book of the Geomancer continues to reveal itself via a series of horrible, unnatural calamities, an unexpected and untold player – Master Darque – has emerged to make his play for young Tama, the latest in the line of Earth-communing mystics called Geomancers… But does the reappearance of Darque mean that the apocalyptic future foretold by Tama has been avoided…or guaranteed? As the heroes of the Valiant Universe fall and nature itself turns on humanity, all that stands between the devastated planet and ultimate evil is the Earth’s undying Fist and Steel himself…Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior!

On September 23rd, Master Darque’s unnatural conquest of all that is and will be comes head-to-head with the one warrior that would oppose him in BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4) by Valiant’s all-stars Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite! Featuring covers by Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Clayton Crain (RAI), Stephen Segovia (NINJAK), Pere Pérez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT), jump on board here to find out why fans and critics are calling BOOK OF DEATH one of 2015′s best comic book events:

“Valiant understands how to do summer events right… [BOOK OF DEATH] is still an event people can’t miss.” – Comic Vine

“An instantly engaging, intriguing world full of unique characters… BOOK OF DEATH is turning out to be a perfect jumping-on point for the Valiant Universe.” – Tech Times

“Venditti brings the fireworks… Fun and accessible – perhaps even moreso – than its caped counterparts over at the Big Two.” – Newsarama

“Spellbinding… Robert Venditti, Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite are on the right track towards making [BOOK OF DEATH] a Valiant event to remember…” – The Beat

“BOOK OF DEATH remains one of the stronger events of the year; compact and fluid, with excellent storytelling and high-quality art, it’s a must-read.” – Comicsverse

Plus: the comic book event of the summer continues in between each issue of BOOK OF DEATH with three other visionary tales of present and future ripped directly from the pages of the Book of the Geomancer! Each month, join an all-star cast of creators as they come aboard the year’s monumental comics event to chronicle the ultimate fate of Valiant’s most indelible heroes.

First Look: Joshua Dysart and CAFU Launch “THE VINE IMPERATIVE” in IMPERIUM #9 – Coming in October!

IMPERIUM_009_COVER-A_KANOIn 1968…Earth’s most powerful man brokered peace with a secret alien faction. This October…their peace will erupt into war!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of IMPERIUM #9 – the FIRST ISSUE of “THE VINE IMPERATIVE“, an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER, HARBINGER WARS) and red-hot rising star CAFU (UNITY)! Start reading here on October 7th with a perfect new jumping-on point as Toyo Harada’s war to save humanity collides with the only enemy that this planet cannot contain…a sinister network of undercover alien spies!

A deadly chess game between Harada and the alien visitors called the Vine has been unfolding for decades. The Vine plantings, the secret alien agents of a galaxy-spanning race, now hold positions of influence all over the planet. Toyo Harada, Earth’s most powerful psiot, has amassed a bedrock of power through his corporate, political, and super-powered maneuverings. A tense standoff has long held between these two slumbering giants and each was content to bend the world to their will without the other interfering…until now.

Now, openly hunted by the governments of the world, Harada’s campaign of world domination continues from his East African stronghold, the Foundation Zone. Soon, the Vine agents who have watched him for decades will move to keep his machinations in check, and, if Harada wants to rule the world…he’ll have to get rid of the competition first!

“The relationship between the Vine plantings and Harada has always been something I was interested in, and it’s never really been touched on,” writer Joshua Dysart told Newsarama. “Harada and a powerful Vine planting would’ve surely met early in Harada’s rise to power, and that meeting would’ve been pretty explosive, since both would’ve have seen the other as a threat. With the backstory of LV-99 (a Vine-designed sentient biological weapon now in service to Harada) hovering over the book, I thought it was a good time to tell that story.”

Cold war turns red hot on October 7th as the acclaimed writer of HARBINGER and the artist of UNITY team-up for a fraught confrontation between two secret armies…and two different worlds! Jump on the board the series that Bloody Disgusting calls “the height of sophisticated comic book stories” here as Toyo Harada and a clandestine alien network collide in “THE VINE IMPERATIVE“, beginning in IMPERIUM #9 – featuring covers by Kano (BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER), Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man), and Juan José Ryp (NINJAK)!

“THE VINE IMPERATIVE” boils over!

The world is suspended within balances of power. Tense and delicate terms of peace, crisscrossing and humming just below the surface. The Vine plantings, undercover alien spies of a galaxy-spanning race, hold positions of influence all over the planet. Toyo Harada, Earth’s most unstoppable psiot, amassed a bedrock of power through his corporate, political, and super-powered maneuverings. A tenuous détente has long held between the slumbering giants, each with the world held loosely in their grip. Until now.

As Harada presses his gambit to wage war for utopia, the agents of the Vine who have watched him for decades move to keep the megalomaniac in check. And if Harada wants to save the world…he’ll have to get rid of the competition. Cold war turns red hot as New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and Valiant superstar CAFU (UNITY) unfold another chapter of IMPERIUM, the comic that Herotaku calls “an entertaining, compelling read month after month”!

Unity may not survive the coming of War-Monger!

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers — those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

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 a man farther into the cosmos than anyone has gone before or since. Lost in the stars, he encountered something unknown. Something that…changed him.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity -– one who turned the scorched desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. Earth is about to meet a new god. And he’s a communist. How long can it be before the first confrontation between mankind and DIVINITY begins?

As the shadowy corporation known as the Harbinger Foundation draws close on all sides, Peter will have to find and recruit other unique individuals like himself… other troubled, immensely powerful youths with abilities beyond their control. Their mission? Bring the fight back to the Harbinger Foundation’s founder Toyo Harada – and dismantle his global empire brick by brick…

The year is 4001 A.D. – led by the artificial intelligence called “Father,” the island nation of Japan has expanded out of the Pacific and into geosynchronous orbit with the ravaged Earth below. With billions to feed and protect, it has fallen to one solitary guardian to enforce the law of Father’s empire – the mysterious folk hero known as Rai. They say he can appear out of nowhere. They say he is a spirit…the ghost of Japan. But when the first murder in a thousand years threatens to topple Father’s benevolent reign, Rai will be forced to confront the true face of a nation transformed…and his own long-lost humanity…
