On December 2nd, return to the home world of the Vine’s brutal alien empire to relive the life and times of Aric of Dacia’s bitterest enemy – the cold and calculating Commander Trill!

From Aric of Dacia’s escape with the X-O Manowar armor to the destruction of his own home planet, pain and consequence have haunted the life of the alien general called Commander Trill. Now, on the eve of the most devastating assault yet, find out why with an essential, standalone zero issue detailing the battle-scarred life and origin of the Vine’s mightiest military leader…and an all-new prelude to X-O Manowar’s most terrifying clash of the year!

Then, Commander Trill’s attack on the Valiant Universe erupts in X-O MANOWAR #43 for THE KILL LIST! After years of planning, Trill hatches his final endgame against Earth and Aric of Dacia. With humanity caught in Trill’s crosshairs, X-O Manowar must turn to his enemy-turned-ally—the deadly MI6 operative Ninjak—to quell the Vine leader’s covert assault! The all-new, pulse-pounding arc begins this January, only in X-O MANOWAR #43!

BOOK OF DEATH’s Robert Venditti & Robert Gill Reunite for THE KILL LIST – A Four-Part Thriller Beginning in January’s X-O MANOWAR #43!

XO_043_COVER-A_JIMENEZThis January, the chart-topping creative team behind BOOK OF DEATH – the most successful independent comic book event of the decade – are coming to Valiant’s flagship hero for an all-new adventure!

Valiant is proud to announce THE KILL LIST – a heat-seeking new jumping-on point beginning in X-O MANOWAR #43 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and red-hot rising star artist Robert Gill! Be here as Earth’s alien-armored guardian, X-O Manowar, and MI-6’s most elite super-spy, Ninjak, reteam for the first time since the ground-breaking events of ENTER: NINJAK for a deadly covert mission to eradicate a secret cabal of alien sleeper agents…before their infiltration of our world goes from undercover to all-out war!

“Robert Venditti and Robert Gill made history together this summer on BOOK OF DEATH, so getting them back for X-O Manowar and Ninjak’s much-demanded reunion made nothing short of perfect sense,” said Editor Tom Brennan. “THE KILL LIST is a taut international thriller that plays to the strengths of each character and holds some big surprises in store for the whole of the Valiant Universe. Hold on tight, because this team is building towards big things for X-O MANOWAR…and it all starts right here.”

With two kingdoms now under his command, Aric of Dacia has pledged loyalty to his adopted nation – the United States of America – and now…America has given him a new mission: destroy the Vine’s network of humanoid alien agents once and for all. To do it, he’ll have to turn to the one man among us he can trust…his own former enemy, the deadly MI-6 operative called Ninjak!

Meanwhile, the Vine’s most militant warrior, Commander Trill, is readying a counterattack…and what happens next will shake the Valiant Universe to its core. Can X-O Manowar and Ninjak cut their way to the source of this stealth attack before all is lost?

Featuring a stunning slate of covers by all-star artists Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Stephen Mooney (Midnighter), Das Pastoras (Thor: God of Thunder), and Mike Choi (X-Force), Aric of Dacia and Colin King forge an alliance between nations to save a world right here this January for THE KILL LIST – beginning in X-O MANOWAR #43!

First Look: Valiant’s Must-Read Debut of 2015 Continues in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #2 – Coming in December!

WRATH_002_COVER-A_LAFUENTEAt the far end of existence…can even Earth’s immortal soldier withstand a foe as old as life itself?

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #2 – the next steel-shattering chapter of the new monthly series from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and newly Valiant-exclusive artist Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye)! On December 16th, Earth’s immortal master of war steps out of the shadow of BOOK OF DEATH…and into a staggering quest unlike anything we’ve ever seen him face before!

Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior, has sacrificed everything to shape a better world…but his work is only beginning. Turning his back on everything and everyone he loved, he must leave the safety of the world he knew behind…and begin a trek across a savage and unexplored realm to return to Earth…if the true cost of his immortality doesn’t destroy him first.

For five millennia, he’s broken armies, civilizations, and empires in service to our planet…but can history’s mightiest soldier withstand the trials that await him in a world far older and far more brutal than our own? Beyond Earth lies eternity…and as the Eternal Warrior awakens to battlefields beyond human comprehension, his mettle will be tested like never before!

Other retailers interested in obtaining a custom WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR battle axe can submit a request to Valiant directly via the retailers@valiantentertainment.com email address.

“WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 is already on track to become one of Valiant’s single biggest releases of the year, and we want to give our retail partners a razor-sharp token of appreciation for making 2015 Valiant Entertainment’s most successful year yet,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “There is a long-term plan in place for the Eternal Warrior, and, as you’ll soon see in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1, the character is about to take his rightful place as one of single most important heroes in the Valiant Universe.

From ARMOR HUNTERS to THE VALIANT and, most recently, the most successful independent comic book event of the decade, BOOK OF DEATH, the Eternal Warrior’s never-ending mission in service to the Earth has played a pivotal role in shaping the Valiant Universe.

For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He’s razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth.

But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he’s ever faced. Separated from his earthly environs, can history’s deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and far more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered before? Beyond Earth lies eternity…

On November 18th, step out of BOOK OF DEATH and into the farthest reaches of the Valiant Universe when WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 begins a staggering quest to the ends of the existence…and back again! Featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Raul Allen (NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Marcos Martin (The Private Eye), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN), get ready to discover the ultimate soldier like you’ve never seen him before, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – in stores November 18th!

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!

A lethal menace has been loosed on the world and everyone – alive or dead –is in harm’s way!

Shan Fong-Mirage is married to a ghost – the late Hwen Mirage, who she herself pulled back from the brink of eternal imprisonment in the underworld. But this team of paranormal investigators has discovered that even the unliving like Hwen can be killed…and that their own research has unwittingly freed a malevolent spirit from a centuries-old enchantment. Now innocent victims – both among the living and dearly departed – are being massacred. To set this right, the Mirages need to unlock another copy of the ancient spell…and only one other paranormal collector has it. And so now the good doctors must pay a house call to an old enemy…

“THE VINE IMPERATIVE” – FINALE! Spy vs. superhuman!

Toyo Harada’s utopian ambition has been shaken to the depths by a decades-old enemy. Since the day Harada began accruing power, the undercover agents of the
Vine’s alien empire have watched…and waited. Years later, as Harada strives to reshape the global economy, establish governments friendly to his goals, and gift the ability of space travel to all humankind, the Vine want him put in check – permanently. Now, with saboteurs riddling his organization and the alien assassin called LV-99 slavering to snap his master’s neck…are the Vine about to succeed?

BOOK OF DEATH TPB
Written by ROBERT VENDITTI
Art by ROBERT GILL and DOUG BRAITHWAITE
Cover by ROBERT GILL

The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.

Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as
Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) joins superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (Batgirl) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) to begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant
Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today.

First Look: Not Even the Dead Are Safe in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1– Coming in December from Jen Van Meter & Roberto de la Torre!

MIRAGE-SEC_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICOn December 23rd, even the dead may die…

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of an astonishing new limited series adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and awe-inspiring artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)! In the wake of multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the acclaimed creators behind Valiant’s breathtaking team of paranormal investigators reunite to open the next forbidden casebook for the death-defying Doctors Mirage…and release a force of utter annihilation on the living and the dead alike!

Occult investigators Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives in the thrall of an epic love that few will ever have…until Hwen died tragically before his time. Now, after a perilous trip through the underworld, Shan and Hwen have been reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spell-book or even touching his wife.

Their options exhausted, the Doctors Mirage are about to enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen’s solid form…and grant his ghost a second life. But, in the wrong hands, their ancient rite will become a tool of terror – and unleash a force of pure, homicidal evil that lusts for the murder of the living and the dead… a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!

On December 23rd, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with a heart-stopping new chapter, only in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Roberto de la Torre (Age of Apocalypse), Khari Evans (HARBINGER), Katie Skelly (Nurse Nurse) and Colleen Coover (Bandette)!
