From New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and red-hot rising star Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight), VALIANT NEXT delivers an all-new ongoing series for Valiant’s most unrelenting hero!

Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well.

Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving headlong into the violence that nearly destroyed him.

HUNTED BY THE SHADOW SEVEN!

International financier Colin King hasn’t just come to Tokyo to take the Rippongi club scene by storm.

It’s all-out ninja-versus-ninja warfare as the deadliest men and women of five continents converge on the Tokyo underworld for a blood-spattered blowout!

Don’t miss the second 40-page issue of Ninjak’s shocking ongoing series from Valiant superstars Matt Kindt (THE VALIANT, RAI) and Clay Mann (Gambit)! Also featuring an all-new installment of Ninjak’s never-before-revealed origin by Matt Kindt and Eisner Award nominee Butch Guice (Captain America)!

Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce the appointment of former comics retailers Andy Liegl and Matthew Klein as Sales Managers. Both Liegl and Klein will join fellow Sales Manager Atom! Freeman, Publishing & Operations Manager Peter Stern, Director of Marketing, Communications & Digital Media Hunter Gorinson, and Publisher Fred Pierce as key members of Valiant’s integrated sales and marketing team, and will be tasked with oversight of Valiant’s retailer relations and live events around the world.

Andy Liegl comes to Valiant from Boom! Studios, where he oversaw the publisher’s convention presence and convention sales strategy as Event Coordinator until 2014. Prior to that, Liegl spent five years as Manager of Collector’s Paradise – Pasadena, a leading comics retailer in Southern California, where he rediscovered Valiant via the publisher’s 2012 “Summer of Valiant” relaunch and personally bolstered in-store sales of the titles in his store to great success. Liegl is also a former comics journalist, having co-founded ComicAttack.net in 2009 and served as an Assistant Editor of Eisner Award-winning website Comic Book Resources from 2012 to 2013.

“I’m absolutely psyched for the opportunity to work with a publisher who puts such a high priority on product quality and the positive impact that can have with our retail partners,” said Liegl. “Everyone at the Valiant office is insanely dedicated to their work and their energy is powerfully motivating. I’m champing at the bit to be boots on the ground at comic shops, working closely with the people who have dedicated their lives to keeping the direct market thriving for consumers.”

A lifelong comic book fan, Matthew Klein worked as a Retail Associate for Forbidden Planet NYC from 2011 to 2014 – one of the largest sellers of comic books, graphic novels, science fiction, toys, and associated collectibles in the world. During his time with FPNYC, he also worked in the the Artistic Department for the Off-Broadway company, The New Group (Avenue Q, Hurly Burly, The Jacksonian). Klein is also a producer and lead script developer for Six Part Productions and has been a company member since 2013.

“I’m incredibly excited to be a part of the Valiant team,” said Klein. “Nobody in comics is creating an intricate yet accessible universe like Valiant’s and populating it with as diverse a cast of characters. I can’t wait to learn from the insanely experienced team and find ways to contribute to our goal of getting a Valiant comic in the hands of every reader.”

Together, Freeman, Liegl, and Klein will lead the front line of communication between Valiant and the comics retail community worldwide, just as Valiant readies a major wave of titles to be released under the auspices of the VALIANT NEXT initiative with new series including IVAR, TIMEWALKER by New York Times best-selling creators Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry; IMPERIUM by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and artist Doug Braithwaite; NINJAK by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and artists Clay Mann and Butch Guice; and BLOODSHOT REBORN by New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire and artist Mico Suayan.

“Valiant’s growth over the past three years has been tremendous, and we’re not done yet” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “As always, however, one of our top priorities remains the strengthening of relationships with fans and retailers. We’ve made a concerted effort since day one to get involved with each and every comic book shop, convention and consumer. Now, as we begin 2015 in full force, we’re looking forward to taking that mission even further with Andy and Matthew on board as valuable new additions to our dedicated and hard-working team.”

First Look: BLOODSHOT REBORN #1 – Inside the New Ongoing Series from Jeff Lemire & Mico Suayan!

BSRB_001_COVER-A_DOE

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BLOODSHOT REBORN #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new VALIANT NEXT ongoing series by New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and red-hot superstar-in-the-making Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight)! Start reading here on April 15th as the VALIANT NEXT initiative presents a brand new beginning for the cutting-edge commando called Bloodshot…and plunges him to his darkest, bloodiest, most mind-bending depths yet.

Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well.

Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving headlong into the violence that nearly destroyed him.

“Jeff Lemire is building something quite unlike any Bloodshot story you’ve seen before with this series,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Scary, thrilling, compelling – and sometimes even downright unsettling – Jeff has found a whole new way to unpack the battle-scarred psychology behind one of Valiant’s most enduring and iconic characters.

“Together with the incredible talents of artist Mico Suayan and colorist David Baron, the entire team is delivering a high-anxiety superhero comic that is just as blood-curdling to read as it is beautiful to look at. BLOODSHOT REBORN is great comics…and soon-to-be a prime example of how and why Valiant’s brand of storytelling continues to exceed expectations and defy the conventional.”

THE VALIANT is only the beginning… On April 15th, Bloodshot returns with an all-new ongoing series as all-star creators Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan deliver a devastating new vision of his place in the Valiant Universe.

Featuring shelf covers by a murderer’s row of top artistic talents – Juan Doe (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Mico Suayan (X-Men: Legacy), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets) and Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX) – VALIANT NEXT reaches its boiling point with an unpredictable journey into the mind of Valiant’s deadliest killer, only in BLOODSHOT REBORN #1 – in stores April 15th!

Valiant Announces “IMPERIUM: PRELUDE” by Joshua Dysart & Doug Braithwaite – An Exclusive Original Story Available in Valiant’s February Titles!

IMPERIUM_PRELUDE_001The VALIANT NEXT initiative is introducing its latest milestone ongoing series on February 4th in IMPERIUM #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), and now Valiant is giving fans a chance to discover the next essential series of 2015 with the IMPERIUM: PRELUDE – an exclusive, never-before-seen prologue sequence by the ongoing creative team of Dysart & Braithwaite that will make its print debut in Valiant’s February titles!

Bridging the gap between Valiant’s hit series HARBINGER and Toyo Harada’s rise in IMPERIUM #1, the spiritual successor to HARBINGER starts here with a fresh start for new readers in the IMPERIUM: PRELUDE! A psychic dictator, an inhuman robot, a mad scientist, a murderous alien, and a super-powered terrorist are about to try and take over the world…and you’re going to be rooting for them every step of the way.

Fully detachable and printed on high-grade cover stock, this exclusive prelude to one of the year’s most highly anticipated new series will come bound into the following February titles from Valiant Entertainment – each of which will be clearly labeled with an IMPERIUM: PRELUDE cover banner:

X-O MANOWAR #33 – on sale February 4th
RAI #7 – on sale February 11th
Q2: THE RETURN OF QUANTUM AND WOODY #5 (of 5) – on sale February 11th
UNITY #15 – on sale February 18th
IVAR, TIMEWALKER #2 – on sale February 18th
QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE #2 – on sale February 25th

IMPERIUM is unlike every other book Valiant has ever published before, and this exclusive prelude story is a great chance to find out why,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Joshua and Doug are doing phenomenal work, and, together, they are about to unleash a politically charged series with global stakes and what are sure to be some of the most compelling characters anywhere in comics today.”

Look for the IMPERIUM: PRELUDE in each of Valiant’s February titles – except the prestige format releases DIVINITY #1 (of 4) and THE VALIANT #3 (of 4)!

Toyo Harada is the most dangerous human being on the planet. Imbued with incredible powers of the mind, he has spent his life guiding humanity from the shadows. But today he is a wanted man. His powers are public knowledge, his allies have turned to enemies, and he is hunted by every government on the planet. Instead of surrendering, Harada has one last unthinkable gambit to play: to achieve more, faster, and with less, he will build a coalition of the powerful, the unscrupulous and the insane. No longer content to demand a better future, he will recruit a violent legion from the darkest corners of the Earth to fight for it.

The battle for utopia begins on February 4th, only in IMPERIUM #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the new VALIANT NEXT ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER WARS, Unknown Soldier) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (UNITY)!

Plus: don’t miss each exciting new series of VALIANT NEXT, beginning with THE VALIANT by all-star creators Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera in December! Then, VALIANT NEXT continues with five blockbuster new series in 2015, starring Valiant’s biggest, most-demanded heroes alongside all-new, never-before-seen characters:

IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1 by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry in January

Valiant is proud to announce that veteran editor Tom Brennan has been named to the position of Associate Editor. Brennan begins his new role in the midst of the new VALIANT NEXT initiative, overseeing the launch of IVAR, TIMEWALKER by the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry. Additionally, Brennan will assist Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons on an ongoing basis on titles including NINJAK – beginning in March – by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and artists Clay Mann and Butch Guice, and X-O MANOWAR by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and artist Diego Bernard.

Brennan is the newest addition to Valiant’s rapidly growing editorial team, which includes Assistant Editor Kyle Andrukiewicz, Editor Alejandro Arbona, and Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons.

“Tom has already proven to be a great fit,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “His editorial experience stems from working on a long list of fantastic comics over the years. Great editors don’t come along often, and I’m thrilled to have him join the team.”

A six-year veteran of the editorial team at Marvel Entertainment and a Harvey Award nominee, Brennan has worked on some of the preeminent characters in comics with recent launches including Wolverine & The X-Men by Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar, and She-Hulk by Charles Soule and Javier Pulido. His series have ranged from the world of all-ages super-heroes in tiles like Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to mainstays of the Marvel line, where Brennan contributed to lengthy runs on Amazing Spider-Man as well as Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Venom, Thunderbolts, Savage Wolverine, and many more.

“Being a part of Valiant Entertainment might just prove that I’m the luckiest guy in comics,” said Brennan. “Watching Valiant not just survive but thrive in one of the toughest climates in publishing history was always inspiring, but to be a part of it is incredibly exciting. Moreover, Warren Simons is an editor I’ve looked up to for my entire career. This place is full of heart and hustle. I am so incredibly grateful to Dinesh Shamdasani, Fred Pierce, Gavin Cuneo and the whole crew for this warm welcome. I’m happy to be here and ready to get to work!”

“This is an exciting time at Valiant,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “The growth and success we have achieved is a testament to the creators and staff at Valiant HQ, who work tirelessly to produce the best comics possible. Tom has been a natural addition to the team and his presence is already being felt across the line.”
