Why the momentous occasion, you ask? Because on March 16th, Valiant’s (somewhat) dynamic duo are beginning an all-out assault on the senses in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of an ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES from rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm, Shutter) and superstar artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)! Valiant’s next blockbuster series starts here in March with “IN THE BAG” – a insane rescue mission sending Archer into the depths of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to free his roguish partner from an ages-old enemy…but only if he can fight his way through a mind-bending maze of history’s greatest lost treasures first!

MEET ARMSTRONG: Since the ancient city of Ur, this immortal adventurer has spent the last 7,000 years drinking and carousing his way through history alongside some of the greatest merrymakers the world has ever known.

MEET ARCHER: A sheltered teenage martial arts master and expert marksman who was raised for a single purpose – to kill the devil incarnate. Little did he know that this undying evil was actually Armstrong (he’s actually a pretty good guy…once you get to know him) and, since hitting the road together, these two have become great friends and even better partners.

NOW: Archer is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet – a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It’s like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there…and he doesn’t exactly have a maid service.)

Imprisoned in Armstrong’s satchel for centuries, Bacchus now commands a legion of monsters, goblins and golems bent on escaping back into the world of man and enacting revenge on their captor… Can Archer single-handedly combat the godly embodiment of intoxication himself – and rescue his best buddy – without becoming lost amongst Armstrong’s endless repository of bizarre artifacts and historical oddities in the process?

On March 16th, buckle in for a wild tour of the world that awaits inside Armstrong’s satchel in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – and then kick out the jams in person with writer Rafer Roberts when the official A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG SIGNING TOUR crashes a party near you!

Shan Fong-Mirage thought she had solved the riddle of her ghostly husband…

They thought the magic of an ancient scroll, the Secunda Vita, could restore Hwen Mirage’s physical form. But the spells in the scroll are deadly…and after spending decades trapped within its words, the malevolent and corrupted spirit of a long-dead sorcerer has been freed to wreak lethal havoc on Earth! To stop this dark force once and for all, Shan and Hwen Mirage must marshal an alliance of old friends and new enemies, of the living and the dead. If they should fail? The living will die…and the dead will be extinguished in this life and the next!

Valiant’s Harvey Award-nominated sensation unleashes an all-new chapter as acclaimed creators Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil) throw the Doctors Mirage into their biggest adventure yet!

Retailer Advisory: Valiant’s FAITH #1 Flies into Third Printing – In Stores Alongside FAITH #2 in February!

FAITH_001_COVER_THIRD PRINTINGFAITH is flying high! From The Guardian to MTV to People to the Today Show, Valiant’s sky-strafing hero has taken the press by storm…and now she’s soaring into her third sold-out printing!

Valiant is proud to announce that FAITH #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the stratospheric new limited series by rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (Green Lantern) and Marguerite Savauge (DC Comics Bombshells) – has once again sold out at the distributor level and will return to stores shelves on February 24th alongside FAITH #2 (of 4) with the FAITH #1 (of 4) THIRD PRINTING.

Bursting out of the pages of HARBINGER, meet the sensational hero that’s captured the attention of the world right here as Faith “Zephyr” Herbert steps into her very first solo adventure – and a spectacular new jumping-on point for the Valiant Universe! After two sold-out printings, stunning reviews, and international media coverage, find out for yourself why FAITH #1 (of 4) is already being heralded as the runaway new series debut of 2016 and one of the most critically acclaimed series of the New Year:

“✮✮✮✮✮… [A] truly stunning book… This is a superhero done right, folks, and that’s something we can all appreciate.” – Nerdist

“✮✮✮✮✮… A perfect first issue… FAITH shines as a true jumping-on point…” – Comic Bastards

“✮✮✮✮✮… You will have faith in FAITH. The first page is enough to get you hooked.” – First Comics News

“✮✮✮✮½… Absolutely refreshing… We need more stories like this in comics.” – Comicosity

“✮✮✮✮… [A] blast of fresh, companion field-fueled air… Welcome to the big leagues, Faith. You’ve made it.” – IGN

“✮✮✮✮… [FAITH] makes her character even more likeable, if such a thing were even possible.” – Comic Book Resources

“✮✮✮✮… Often hilarious and always mindful, [FAITH] is a Valiant slam-dunk…” – Doomrocket

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!

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?

On February 24th, get ready to #FLYLIKEFAITH when Valiant’s headline-grabbing solo debut returns to comic shops everywhere with the FAITH #1 (of 4) THIRD PRINTING!

BSRB_012_COVER-A_BODENHEIMValiant is proud to present an advance preview of BLOODSHOT REBORN #12 – the next armor-piercing installment of “THE ANALOG MAN” from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and artist extraordinaire Lewis LaRosa (The Punisher)! Presented in the deluxe VALIANT PRESTIGE format, jump 30 years into the future of the Valiant Universe here on April 20th as Bloodshot and Ninjak lead an assault on the fortified ramparts of Los Angeles 2046 in search of the secret that transformed the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland!

Motivated by the latest in a never-ending barrage of tragedies, Bloodshot is teaming with his old friend and ally, Ninjak, to take down the marauding bands of Shadowmen that roam the landscape and the deadly X-O Manowar armor-drones that fly high above it. But Bloodshot is not the technologically advanced warrior he once was… Can he overcome the onslaught of the future’s bleeding-edge “goo-tech” defenses? And just who is the Man in the White Tower…and how he is responsible for this extraordinarily dangerous world of tomorrow?

“9.5/10… Jaw-dropping good. It’s foreboding and epic like something out of Blade Runner… This rip roaring story takes you on a ride you don’t want to miss.” – Adventures in Poor Taste!

“✮✮✮✮ ½… One of the best books on the shelves even [as] Lemire and Larosa take us 30 years into the future… You should pick this up for the art alone; it’s that good.” – Bounding into Comics

“✮✮✮✮… Lewis Larosa and Brian Reber have turned this up to 11… [THE ANALOG MAN] has some mileage, and it’s going to be lively seeing what Jeff Lemire has dreamed up for us.” – Big Comic Page

“✮✮✮✮… This book is full of excitement and any readers looking to jump onto [BLOODSHOT REBORN] have a great opportunity here.” – Comicosity

On April 20th, Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa bring Bloodshot barreling into the latest prestige-format chapter of “THE ANALOG MAN,” only in BLOODSHOT REBORN #12 – featuring covers by Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), Tula Lotay (The Wicked + The Divine), and Roberto de la Torre (THE DEATH-DEFYING DR.

First Look: A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #2 Jumps “IN THE BAG” with Rafer Roberts and David Lafuente in April!

A&A_002_COVER-A_LAFUENTEThis spring, Valiant’s award-winning adventurers are reunited…and it won’t feel so good! Trapped in a prison of their own making, Archer & Armstrong are going head-to-head with monsters, ninja nuns, the Greek god of parties, and a talking fish-man too for a tale so debauched it could only be called…“IN THE BAG”!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #2 – the second shock-inducing issue of Valiant’s ALL–NEW ONGOING SERIES from rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)! On April 13th, comics’ most dysfunctional duo are going even deeper “IN THE BAG” as Archer & Armstrong continue their mind-shattering rescue mission into the depths of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel! Their journey began like all great journeys do – with a search for history’s finest bottle of whiskey – and ended with the disgruntled god of intoxication, Bacchus, taking Armstrong as his prisoner! Now, it’s down to teenage marksman and Armstrong’s best-est pal Obadiah Archer to save his immortal partner…but only if he can survive the mythological monsters and bizarre historical oddities that thrive in the upside-down reaches of Armstrong’s endless satchel first!

“[A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG is] insane and weird and trippy. When David came aboard, not only did he draw all the madness I had written, but he added to it,” writer Rafer Roberts told Multiversity Comics. “There’s a splash page where we see an overview of the world inside the bag that I described as a Home Depot designed by MC Escher and stretching into infinity. He exceeded my expectations by a mile. Every strange creature, whether it be the goblins who keep everything organized inside the bag, or the trash golems made up of thousands of years worth of Armstrong’s garbage, looks amazing and way crazier than I ever imagined.”

After following Armstrong into the depths of his infinite satchel in a search for booze, Archer and his partner, history’s most inebriated immortal, have found themselves prisoners of…uh…what’s this villain’s name again? Armstrong may not be able to remember what their captor, Bacchus, is all about, but he sure is upset by the memories tied to a rare bottle of whiskey.

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”!

First Look: Rafer Roberts and David Lafuente Go “IN THE BAG” for A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – Coming in March!

AA_001_COVER-A_LAFUENTE1GET SMASHED…OR BE SMASHED! This spring, Valiant’s award-winning heroes are back…and dropping into their biggest adventure yet for an all-new monthly series!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the NEW ONGOING SERIES from red-hot rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)! Valiant’s next blockbuster series starts here on March 16th with “IN THE BAG” – a insane rescue mission sending Archer into the depths of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to free his roguish partner from an ages-old enemy…but only if he can fight his way through a mind-bending maze of history’s greatest lost treasures first!

MEET ARMSTRONG: Since the ancient city of Ur, this immortal adventurer has spent the last 7,000 years drinking and carousing his way through history alongside some of the greatest merrymakers the world has ever known.

MEET ARCHER: A sheltered teenage martial arts master and expert marksman who was raised for a single purpose – to kill the devil incarnate. Little did he know that this undying evil was actually Armstrong (he’s actually a pretty good guy…once you get to know him) and, since hitting the road together, these two have become great friends and even better partners.

NOW: Archer is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet – a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It’s like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there…and he doesn’t exactly have a maid service.)

Imprisoned in Armstrong’s satchel for centuries, Bacchus now commands a legion of monsters, goblins and golems bent on escaping back into the world of man and enacting revenge on their captor… Can Archer single-handedly combat the godly embodiment of intoxication himself – and rescue his best buddy – without becoming lost amongst Armstrong’s endless repository of bizarre artifacts and historical oddities in the process?

“A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG is a funny book. It is also action-packed and full of strange and surreal characters and situations. However, under all the humor and surrealness, there is a great deal of heart,” series writer Rafer Roberts told ComicBook.com.

“One of the most satisfying things I get to play with in A&A is the fluid dynamic of a strong friendship under the guise of a manic action series. Like in any relationship there will be ups and downs. There will be good times spent fighting an army of lizard-men and trash golems, and bad times where they are getting their asses kicked by an 80-foot tall goat monster that they unleashed upon the Earth.”

An immortal mischief-maker, a teenage assassin with a heart of gold, and the Greek god of partying walk into a fifth-dimensional messenger bag… Stop us if you’ve heard this one before when “IN THE BAG” starts with a bang on March 16th, only in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – featuring covers by David Lafuente (Patsy Walker: Hellcat), Kano (Swamp Thing), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), Clayton Henry (HARBINGER), Rafer Roberts (Carpool Buddies of Doom), and Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis)!
