First Look: IMPERIUM #1 – Valiant Reveals Complete Covers, First Interiors from the New Ongoing Series by Dysart & Braithwaite!

IMPERIUM_001_COVER-A_ALLENA 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. 

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside IMPERIUM #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-newVALIANT NEXT ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger,Unknown Soldier) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (Armor HuntersUnity)! The daring new superhero saga of the year starts here on February 4th as Toyo Harada rises from the ashes of the Harbinger Foundation to recruit a more explosive…more cunning…more ruthless army to remake the future of Earth in their own image. This is IMPERIUM!

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 now.

“This is a real chance for us to play around with some super-villain tropes the same way we played with super-hero tropes in Harbinger,” said writer Joshua Dysart. ”This time the tropes we’re playing with are an ‘evil alien,’ a ‘robot soldier,’ a ‘mad scientist,’ a ‘political extremist’ (the most terrifying of all monsters), and, of course, a ‘global dictator’ bent on taking over the world. So all of that breeds new fun characters to throw into the Valiant Universe.”

IMPERIUM_001_COVER-B_ALLENFeaturing three standard shelf covers introducing the vanguard of IMPERIUM‘s ultra-powered ideologues – commander Toyo Harada, the alien powerhouse Lord Vine-99, and the manipulative artificial intelligence Mech Major – start reading here as the global takeover begins…and IMPERIUMrises. From the writer of Harbinger and the artist of Armor Hunters, VALIANT NEXT continues right here in an essential, new ongoing series on February 4th, only in IMPERIUM #1!

DEAD HAND – The X-O MANOWAR Epic of 2015 Begins in March!

XO_034_COVER-A_LAROSADEAD HAND is coming…and, in 2015, X-O MANOWAR is all that stands between Earth and the ultimate doomsday fail-safe! 

Valiant is proud to present DEAD HAND – a devastating cosmic showdown beginning this March in X-O MANOWAR #34 from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (ARMOR HUNTERS, The Flash) and superstar-in-the-making Diego Bernard (Red Lanterns)!

Born into battle, Aric of Dacia, the fifth century Visigoth now called X-O Manowar, has never known peace. Abducted and enslaved by the savage alien empire known as The Vine, Aric finally escaped his captors after stealing their ultra-powerful X-O Manowar armor and returned to Earth…only to find that more than a thousand years had passed in his absence. Stranded in the modern day, the most primitive man on Earth now wields the most powerful weapon in existence as X-O Manowar – one of the Earth’s most formidable new heroes and a member of the international superteam codenamed Unity. Together, X-O Manowar and Unity have wrenched the world back from the chaos wrought by the invasion of the unearthly Armor Hunters…but, in 2015, the fate of all life – human and alien alike – will be thrown into dire peril…

In the far reaches of deep space, the ultimate fail-safe of an extinct alien race has finally counted down to zero…and the robot army called DEAD HAND has been activated. The civilization that built them has fallen…and, now, to combat the doomsday threat that destroyed their world, DEAD HAND will complete the mission that their creators could not. Soulless and brutal, this billion-strong legion is the phantom army of a dead world…and it will cleanse the universe by any means necessary. But what unthinkable menace were they created to destroy? And will DEAD HAND‘s slow march across the galaxy spell death for countless worlds?

Soon, Aric of Dacia will be forced to confront the secrets that have pushed him to the terrible turning point that is DEAD HAND…and battle a single-minded killing machine unlike any he has seen before! Outmatched and vastly outnumbered, how can Aric stop something unstoppable…something that knows no fear, only eradication?

DEAD HAND is going to take the mythology surrounding the X-O Manowar armor, and the entire Valiant Universe, in a direction not seen before,” said writer Robert Venditti. “As formidable as the adversaries in the series have been to date, none of them measure up to this single-minded, doomsday threat. X-O Manowar has made a habit of taking what readers expect and turning it on its head. We’ve challenged ourselves to do that again.”

“Last summer, X-O Manowar went up against the Armor Hunters for a full-metal throwdown between Earth and alien life. Well, we won the battle, but that doesn’t mean we’ve won the war,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. ”Somewhere out there, something colder, grimmer, and more calculating is about to come online. And it won’t concede that war, even in death. An extinct world has saved a nasty treat for the Valiant U – something insanely effective that could only exist in the wake of their failure – a dead hand. Venditti’s cooked up a good one, folks.”

This March, in the blistering fallout of ENTER: ARMORINES, the battle-hardened hero at the center of the Valiant Universe will take to the stars…and face the terrible onslaught of a coming robot war unlike anything in the history of human civilization!

Featuring specially manufactured DEAD HAND OVERLAY WRAP COVERS by Valiant superstar Lewis Larosa (BLOODSHOT) on each issue, alongside wraparound alternate covers by rising star Jorge Molina (X-Men), the four-part DEAD HAND action epic is the can’t-miss X-O MANOWAR mega-event of 2015 – and it all begins this March, only in X-O MANOWAR #34!

THE VALIANT #1 Returns with Second Printing in January! Plus: Your First Look Inside THE VALIANT #2!

THE-VALIANT_001_second printingValiant is proud to announce that THE VALIANT #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the VALIANT NEXT limited series epic by New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green ArrowAnimal Man) & Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) – has sold out at the distributor level and will return with a second printing on January 21st, alongside the series’ second stunning installment in THE VALIANT #2 (of 4)!

THE VALIANT is one of the most ambitious stories we’ve attempted to date, and comics fans have rightly taken notice,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Jeff, Matt, and Paolo have created an epic, yet intimate story that is going to build a tremendous amount of momentum for some of our biggest heroes. And stand back…they’re just getting started. THE VALIANT is hands down one of the best series you’ll find anywhere this year from any publisher.”

As the first issue released in the new VALIANT PRESTIGE format, THE VALIANT #1 SECOND PRINTING features an oversized 25-page first chapter, deluxe matte-laminate card stock covers, custom-designed end sheets, exclusive back matter curated by Paolo Rivera, and much more – all complete with no advertisements and a standard $3.99 cover price!

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.

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT #1 (of 4)is the beginning of a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.
