Valiant’s HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 Expands to 40 Epic Pages with Artists Raul Allen and Juan Jose Ryp – On Sale November 16th!

HR_001_COVER-A_ROBERTSONTwo Valiant-Exclusive Superstars Join Debut of Rafer Roberts & Darick Roberston’s Staggering New Ongoing Series Launch

HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 is the can’t-miss Valiant debut of 2016! And now the most anticipated new series of the fall is getting even bigger with a massive 40-page first issue packed with more all-star talents, can’t-miss first appearances and monumental revelations than ever before!

Valiant is proud to announce that HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new ongoing series from multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan) – is expanding to a massive 40 pages to accommodate integral new contributions and bonus content from an all-star cast of special guests… All for the standard $3.99 cover price!

Joining Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson’s already extra-sized opening salvo for Valiant’s team of high-powered teenage heroes on the run will be several of comics’ most acclaimed talents for a thrilling, widescreen expansion of one of the most important Harbinger stories told in the franchise’s nearly three-decade-long history:

• An all-new introduction written by Rafer Roberts and featuring artwork by Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) – Learn everything you need to know about the revolutionary world of Harbinger in an all-new primer! Exactly what are the extraordinary individuals called “psiots”? How many of them exist among us? What are their incredible powers? And who are the members of the secret psiot team called the Harbinger Renegades?

• The first chapter of an all-new monthly origin story, written by Rafer Roberts and featuring artwork by Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA) – A four-part prologue, set before the events of HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 and featuring the first appearance and origin of Alexander Solomon, a major new Valiant antagonist and one of the most important characters in the Valiant Universe in 2017 and beyond.

“In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be revealing several pieces of key information about just how important the events of HARBINGER RENEGADES will be to the whole of the Valiant Universe,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Simply put: If there is one Valiant title not to be missed this fall, it’s HARBINGER RENEGADES #1. What happens in the opening pages of Rafer and Darick’s first issue will be of long-term importance not just in 2017, but in 2018 and beyond.”

Anyone you know could become a psionically powered “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. Your neighbor. Your boss. Your best friend. Your kids.

Six months ago, a secret team of renegade whistleblowers leaked the existence of these extraordinarily dangerous individuals to a stunned world. Today, all across the country, crude, DIY psiot activation attempts have left hundreds brain damaged…or worse. The emergence of a new psiot in a community often leads to riots and mass violence. Gun sales are through the roof. America is terrified of what could happen next.

With this revolutionary upheaval now in motion, Kris Hathaway, John “Torque” Torkelson, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and Peter Stanchek are about to discover their calling. Together, the HARBINGER RENEGADES are moving from town to town, building their ranks, and subverting authority one mind at a time…and setting out to prove once and for all that behind their power, there has always been a purpose.

On November 16th, Rafer Roberts, Darick Robertson, Raul Allen, and Juan Jose Ryp unleash Valiant’s untamed team of runaways and malcontents onto a world that’s more distressed – and more distrusting – than ever before. As the country threatens to overflow with hostility, terror and paranoia, the time has come to reveal the truth about the secret power that now threatens to divide and conquer a nation! From the best-selling, award-winning adventures of HARBINGER comes an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT for Valiant’s critically lauded superteam, only in HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 – featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl)!

Matt Kindt & Marc Laming Unleash “THE SEVEN BLADES OF MASTER DARQUE” – Beginning in January!

NINJAK_023_COVER-A_BODENHEIMThe Countdown to One of 2017’s Biggest Showdowns Begins with Major New Storyline Launching in NINJAK #23

The most daring Ninjak epic of all time is about to begin as Master Darque goes head to head with Valiant’s most feared super-spy!

As revealed today at Newsarama, Valiant is proud to announce “THE SEVEN BLADES OF MASTER DARQUE,” beginning in January’s NINJAK #23 – the FIRST ISSUE of a blistering ALL-NEW ARC and ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT for MI-6’s deadliest covert operative! This winter, join New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE) and acclaimed artist Marc Laming (Planet Hulk) for a searing, four-part descent into darkness that will set Ninjak on an irreversible collision course with Master Darque – the secret master of his deadliest foes, the Shadow Seven, and the Valiant Universe’s most dreaded force of evil incarnate!

Master Darque – the sadistic lord of death and resurrection – wrests to be free once again, but first he must fight for his life. Darque is a target, his powers are weak, and his enemies know it. Now, Darque’s own former pupil and Ninjak’s ruthless arch-nemesis – the lethal assassin known as Roku – has gathered the Shadow Seven together again for the sole purpose of putting Darque down for good. And the only thing holding their uneasy alliance together is a mysterious benefactor from the shadows… Someone who also goes by the name Darque…

“I’m incredibly excited about the revelations we have in store for THE SEVEN BLADES OF MASTER DARQUE. This is a story we’ve been building towards right from Ninjak’s first issue,” said Valiant Editor in Chief Warren Simons. “From the truth of Ninjak’s training and origin to the final revelation about the Shadow Seven’s secret final members, Matt and Marc are about to unleash some major, game-changing ramifications that are going to leave jaws dropped.”

It’s all led to this! On January 11th, be there as Matt Kindt and Marc Laming present a death-defying jumping-on point that will leave Valiant’s seven-time Harvey Award-nominated series forever shattered when “THE SEVEN BLADES OF MASTER DARQUE” strikes in NINJAK #23! Featuring covers by Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Ben Oliver (The Multiversity), Felipe Massafera (Shaper), Ryan Lee (Inhuman), Bilquis Evely (Wonder Woman), and Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), the countdown to the biggest Ninjak tale ever attempted starts here in 2017!

First Look: DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 – Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine Lead the Most Explosive Comics Event of 2017!

DIVINITY-III_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICPlus: The Stalinverse Wreaks Havoc with DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 in December and DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 in January!

This winter, the Valiant Universe you once knew is no more… Only the Stalinverse remains!

As revealed today at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s all-new event-level epic from the seven-time Harvey Award-nominated creative team of writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), inker Ryan Winn (X-O MANOWAR), and colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN)!

On December 21st, the sold-out sci-fi saga that redefined the Valiant Universe begins a reality-shattering comics event that will collide the world’s most formidable heroes with a disturbing new vision… One where a worldwide Soviet empire now rules a world order… The Iron Curtain extends across continents, shattering governments and armies in its wake… And the communist global super-state rules not only with an iron fist, but with powers far beyond the comprehension of mortal men.

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

Then: the revolutionary upheaval continues on December 28th as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Death of X) and comics superstar Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) present a blood-curdling examination of the Stalinverse’s ultimate state-sponsored assassin in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 – the first of four essential specials revealing the super-powered Soviet regime behind the winter’s most incendiary comics event!

He’s put down protests, led the purge of political undesirables, and executed dozens of traitors to the Soviet super-state. His name is KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT…and his existence is a hushed whisper among the terrified populace of the 21st century’s global Soviet Union. But just who is this unrelenting enforcer of state superiority… and what is the shocking truth about his power, his allegiances, and his true identity?

Don’t miss the shocking twists and turmoil that await in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 – featuring an iron-clad line of covers from Clayton Crain (Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE), and Kano (Daredevil)!

Plus: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1! On January 18th, join acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall, The X-Files: Season 10) and Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man) as they reveal what happens when Valiant’s leading legend – the unstoppable X-O Manowar – becomes the supreme fighting force of the CCCP in the next must-read one-shot torn from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE!

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 justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

The world we know is gone, and the Valiant Universe as we now know it will continue to reveal itself on January 18th, only in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Diego Bernard (X-O MANOWAR), CAFU (RAI), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), and Kano (Daredevil)! Don’t miss the next riveting moment of the winter’s most mind-shattering comics event when Joe Harris and David Lafuente present an empire-breaking tale of sins, secrets, and tragedy for the global hero of the worldwide communist state!

Stay tuned as the Stalinverse spreads with more top-secret DIVINITY III one-shots detailing the redacted history of the Soviet Union’s most notorious patriots, agitators, and outcasts throughout the winter!

On November 2nd, Faith leaps off the comics page and into the annals of American history for a landmark comics event! Be there when the sky-soaring heroine that captured the hearts and minds of an entire nation takes flight alongside Hillary Clinton for this campaign season’s must-read election special, only in FAITH #5 – featuring covers by Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT, Daredevil), Meghan Hetrick (Uncanny Avengers), Carmen Carnero (Adventures of Supergirl), Michael Walsh (Secret Avengers), and Rafa Sandoval (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps.)!

NYCC 2016: Valiant Announces NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE – A Live-Action, Digital-Exclusive Series

b0c9c87e-414a-4018-ac8d-ccceee30e860Award-Winning Comics Publisher Launches New Division, VALIANT DIGITAL, to Produce Short-Form Content for Emerging Media

As revealed today at New York Comic Con 2016, Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE – a brutal, first-of-its-kind, live-action digital series. Premiering online in late 2017, the bone-shattering, six-episode series will pit MI-6’s master assassin, Ninjak, against a gauntlet of Valiant’s most formidable heroes for a bloodstained battle royale torn from the pages of the largest independent superhero universe in comics.

Watch the first trailer for NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE here:

The series will be the first project from VALIANT DIGITAL – a new division of Valiant Entertainment committed to producing original content in live-action, animation and emerging media created specifically for the digital arena. In addition to NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE, look for more projects from VALIANT DIGITAL to be announced in the near future.

“With major projects in film, television, and gaming already well underway, VALIANT DIGITAL is the next strategic evolution of Valiant’s long-term plan to expand the ranks of its already sizable fanbase around the world,” said Valiant Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo. “In years past, it wasn’t uncommon for comic book publishers to prime new fans by expanding into Saturday morning animation or short-form programming. Today, that demographic has largely migrated online. With the launch of VALIANT DIGITAL and, soon, NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE, Valiant will become the first major comic book publisher to create original, short-form content for the digital arena – and, with it, introduce our characters to one of the most engaged and passionate communities anywhere.”

Directed by Aaron & Sean Schoenke of Bat in the Sun Productions – the creators of the massively popular YouTube sensation Super Power Beat Down – and written by Aaron Schoenke, Sean Schoenke, and Joe Harris, NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE stars Michael Rowe (The CW’s Arrow and The Flash) as Colin King aka Ninjak; Jason David Frank (Power Rangers) as Bloodshot; John Morrison (WWE, El Rey’s Lucha Underground) as the Eternal Warrior; Chantelle Barry (90210, Entourage) as Roku; Kevin Porter (Dodgeball) as Armstrong; Ciera Foster (Two and a Half Men) as Livewire, and Derek Theler (ABC’s Baby Daddy) as X-O Manowar; among others yet to be revealed. The series will be produced by Dinesh Shamdasani, Josh Johns, and Gavin Cuneo for Valiant Entertainment.

“We’ve been quietly working over the last year to build a series of a scale and ambition that has never before been attempted in the digital space. NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE is a showcase for the incredible characters and storytelling that Valiant has exhibited from its inception,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “We are incredibly excited to finally be sharing the first project from VALIANT DIGITAL with the Valiant fanbase, the comic book faithful and a whole new legion of fans who consume pop culture in the digital arena, but have yet to purchase their first Valiant comic. We’re bringing the same passion and intensity that helped us produce some of the best comics in the business and coupling that with an incredible, first-class team of filmmakers to create an experience that must be seen to be believed.”

Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe…

“Bat in the Sun couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with the Valiant Digital family with NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE,” said Bat in the Sun Productions co-founder Aaron Schoenke. “Since starting Bat in the Sun in 2001, we have continued to push boundaries of digital-exclusive content and we excitedly look forward to bringing our millions of fans a series unlike anything they have seen before.”

Originally founded in 1989, Valiant Entertainment is one of the most successful publishers in the history of the comic book medium with more than 80 million units sold and the third largest library of superhero characters in comics. In 2012, Valiant roared back to the fore with four new titles released under the banner of “The Summer of Valiant” – a relaunch that quickly established itself as the biggest debut of a new comic book publisher in more than a decade. Beginning with X-O MANOWAR #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord, which ranked as the year’s best-selling new series from any independent publisher, Valiant has gone onto produce some of the highest selling and most critically accoladed comic titles anywhere in the industry. During the same period, the resurgent Valiant was also awarded a coveted Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year after just seven months of publishing, marking the fastest time that any new publisher had been named to one of comics’ highest honors. In 2015, Valiant announced a multi-picture deal to bring Bloodshot and Harbinger to the big screen as feature films.

Consistently rated year over year as the most acclaimed comic book publisher in the industry today, Valiant has received hundreds of awards, nominations, and critical accolades, culminating in 2016 with a record-setting 50 Harvey Awards nominations – the most ever received by a single publisher in the history of one of the comic book industry’s most prestigious awards.

Co-created by legendary writer/artist Bob Layton, writer Mark Moretti, and current Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, Ninjak first debuted in 1993 in the pages of Valiant’s BLOODSHOT #6 before launching his own massively popular solo series. As one of the definitive and most popular Valiant heroes of all time, Ninjak boasts lifetime sales of more than 3 million copies and a legion of fans around the world. Ninjak’s current series, launched in 2015 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt with artists Clay Mann and Butch Guice, is often cited as one of Valiant’s finest and was recently nominated for seven 2016 Harvey Awards in categories including Best Continuing or Limited Series, Best Graphic Album, Best Cover Artist, and many more. NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE will mark the character’s first appearance in live-action.

Founded by Aaron & Sean Schoenke in 2001, Bat in the Sun Productions is one of the leading producers of scripted original content in the digital arena. Their flagship show, Super Power Beat Down, is one of the most successful original series in YouTube history and features popular heroes and villains leaping from the comic page and onto the screen for a winner-take-all battle decided by fans across the globe. The success of Super Power Beat Down has launched Bat in the Sun’s YouTube network into worldwide notoriety and popular acclaim with nearly 2 million subscribers and more than 200 million views.

Duty has led to darkness…

Dispatched to the remote outpost of Britannia by Rome’s highest power, the ancient world’s first detective – veteran legionnaire Antonius Axia – has found himself on a horrifying journey that will challenge everything he knows about death, destiny, and the limits of reality itself. But in this wild and pagan land, far removed from Nero’s control and influence, how will he grapple with the witches, demons and deities that lurk just out of sight? These are aberrations beyond the comprehension of a citizen of history’s most civilized empire…and, as Axia searches for the truth behind their making, he must first ask himself: Are these monsters truly creatures of myth… or creations of his own mind?

The answers will be found as comics legend Peter Milligan (Shade, the Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (NINJAK, Clone) lead a phantasmagorical expedition in the lands between darkness, desire, and destruction in the pages of Valiant’s latest prestige-format masterwork!
