First Look: Robert Venditti & Raul Allen Enter the “LABYRINTH” for WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7 – Coming in May!

WRATH_007_COVER-A_ALLENThis summer, the most shocking Valiant epic of the year starts here as Earth’s immortal master of war runs a gauntlet of pain and punishment engineered by history’s coldest and most calculating scientific mind!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7 – the FIRST ISSUE of “LABYRINTH”, an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and Valiant-exclusive artist and visionary storyteller Raul Allen (Hawkeye)! On May 18th, the most punishing Eternal Warrior story in history starts here! Gilad Anni-Padda has escaped the depths of Hell…but has he stumbled into a place far worse? Imprisoned in the most impenetrable deathtrap ever conceived, the Eternal Warrior’s escape rests in a tour of agony, anguish, and affliction designed to break his body, torment his mind…and reveal, at long last, the time-lost secret of his immortality!

Across six millennia, Gilad Anni-Padda – an immortal warrior sworn to forever serve the Earth – has felled zealots and madmen, emperors and tyrants in the course of his duty. But nothing he’s faced yet can prepare him to run the “LABYRINTH” – a miles-long maze of horrors specifically designed to undermine his every strength, enhance his every weakness…and to send him screaming into the darkness of death at every turn. But what kind of brilliant-but-twisted psyche could have possibly conceived such a monument to terror…and for how many centuries have they plotted to break the mind and body of history’s most formidable soldier?

The answer lies at the heart of the “LABYRINTH” itself…and as Gilad endures a gauntlet of cutting-edge technology and sharpened steel, he’ll soon discover why the merciless figure known only as The Dying One has singled the Eternal Warrior out for the ultimate deathtrap.

On May 18th, the Eternal Warrior’s place in history and the Valiant Universe will be forever altered when Robert Venditti and Raul Allen enter the “LABYRINTH” – a startling new jumping-on point beginning in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7! Featuring covers by Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK), Khari Evans (HARBINGER), and Dave Bullock (The Rocketeer at War), the definitive Eternal Warrior epic of 2016 starts right here on May 18th, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7!

Valiant Flies High with FAITH #1 in July – Now an Ongoing Series from Houser, Perez, and Sauvage!

FAITH_ONGOING_001_COVER-A_WADAAfter Worldwide Media Attention and Five Sold-Out Printings, 2016′s Most Talked-About Hero Returns for Her First Monthly Series!

As revealed today by the New York Times, Valiant is proud to announce that Faith is stepping out of the pages of her five-time sold-out limited series debut and into the pages of her first-ever monthly title this July for FAITH #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of an ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES from rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black), Harvey Award-nominated sensation Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and acclaimed artist Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells)!

“Since Faith’s solo debut hit stands, no matter where we’ve turned – from conventions to comic shops to social media – fans all over the globe have called on Valiant to further Faith’s adventures beyond four issues alone,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Now that day has come, and we’re proud to say that Faith’s journey will continue in 2016 and beyond. Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage did a masterful job introducing Faith to a whole new audience, and now we’re glad to welcome Valiant-exclusive artist and extraordinarily talented storyteller Pere Perez to the Faith family for her first ongoing series – a benchmark achievement if there ever was one.”

Created by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter (Secret Wars) and Eisner Award-winning writer and artist David Lapham (Stray Bullets) in Valiant’s acclaimed HARBINGER series in 1992, Faith has long been a central icon of Valiant’s award-winning publishing line. Then, in January 2016, Faith took her long-awaited, much-demanded first step toward solo stardom with FAITH #1 (of 4) – a groundbreaking debut that quickly became the first and biggest breakout hit of the New Year from any major comics publisher. In the weeks since, Faith’s solo debut has garnered near-universal critical acclaim; generated attention from some of the world’s biggest media outlets including the BBC, the Guardian, the Huffington Post, NPR, People, Today, the Washington Post, and dozens more; and become the first series of 2016 to reach a much-vaunted fifth printing – making it one of only a handful of hit series in the past decade to achieve that pivotal benchmark of fan and commercial demand.

“Faith isn’t just a superhero anymore. In a very short time, she’s become a true pop culture phenomenon,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Finally, the world is realizing what we at Valiant have known all along: that in a medium populated by characters that can often seem dark and cynical, Faith represents a ray of hope and optimism that resonates far beyond the printed page alone. She truly is a hero in every sense of the word and, at her core, she represents the best that superheroes and comics as a whole have to offer to the world.”

In a city under siege by robots, aliens, monsters and, even worse, celebrities, there is only one woman the people of Los Angeles can count on: the stratospheric superhero called Faith! Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence – like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe…and could they be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?

On July 20th, don’t miss history in the making when the colossal comics milestone of the summer arrives with the brand-new FAITH #1 – featuring covers by a staggering cast of comics talents, including Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Emanuela Lupacchino (Superwoman), Pere Perez (HARBINGER WARS), Kano (Gotham Central), and Colleen Coover (Bandette)! Jump on on board here and find out why Valiant’s high-flying hero has captured the imagination of the world – and inspired a whole new generation of comics fans – when FAITH #1 hits comic shops everywhere on July 20th!

Plus: Go back to the beginning and relive Faith’s headline-grabbing solo debut with the FAITH VOL. 1: HOLLYWOOD AND VINE trade paperback collection – also on sale in July! Re-presenting all four issues of the sold-out limited series that catapulted HARBINGER’s leading heroine into superhero stardom for just $9.99, get primed for Faith’s first ongoing series here as all-star creators Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage begin the story that made Faith a full-on comics sensation!

And look for the precedent-setting FAITH #1 (of 4) FIFTH PRINTING – on sale on April 27th alongside the final issue of Faith’s solo mini-series debut in FAITH #4 (of 4)!

First Look: Go Beyond with Kindt & Hairsine for DIVINITY II #2 (of 4) – Coming in May!

DIVINITY2_002_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICThis summer, the world as we know it will be rewritten when Valiant’s sold-out sci-fi epic expands outward with its next mind-expanding chapter!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY II #2 (of 4) – an all-new installment of 2016’s unbelievable cosmic odyssey from the critically acclaimed creative team of writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D., Mind MGMT), artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), inker Ryan Winn (A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! On May 25th, the scales of international power undergo a seismic realignment as Myshka, the latest Soviet cosmonaut to return to Earth with god-like powers, sets out to transform Mother Russia into the world’s dominant economic and military power! As the security forces of every nation scramble to unearth the source of Russia’s rapid rise, their only hope may lie in the last uber-powerful being that they imprisoned – Abram Adams, Myshka’s former teammate and Earth’s first DIVINITY!

“[DIVINITY II] will shift slightly to the two members of Divinity’s crew that were left in space at the end of the first arc. Especially the woman that went with him — and her struggle to survive and return to Earth,” series writer Matt Kindt told Vulture. “She is not happy about what happened. We’ll see things from her perspective that will really inform our opinion of Divinity and what he did in the first series.”

Just a month after the arrival of long-lost cosmonaut Myshka, the former Soviet Union has made an impossible push to become the world’s preeminent superpower. But how? Ninjak has a theory, but it will require going undercover across enemy lines…and maybe some help from Mishka’s old comrade, Abram Adams – the god-like being known as Divinity!

WonderCon 2016: The Countdown to X-O MANOWAR #50 Begins in June!

XO_050_TEASER_FINAL-SUAYANValiant’s Flagship Series Celebrates the March Toward 2016’s Biggest Finale with X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY – Featuring Exclusive Micro-Prints or Original Artwork Bagged in Each Issue!

Valiant is proud to announce a series of staggering plans marching toward September’s upcoming X–O MANOWAR #50 – a massive comics milestone that will conclude the epic, historic run of New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti on Valiant’s flagship series.

The countdown to X-O MANOWAR #50 begins with “LONG LIVE THE KING” – a striking cosmic showdown beginning this June in X-O MANOWAR #47 by Venditti and acclaimed artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil) that will bring Venditti’s award-winning and critically lauded superhero saga to a world-shaking finale…and mark the beginning of an all-new era for the future of Valiant’s most powerful hero!

“Robert Venditti’s run on X-O MANOWAR is one of the finest in Valiant’s storied history,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “From his very first issue with artist Cary Nord through PLANET DEATH, UNITY, ARMOR HUNTERS and beyond, Rob’s work on X-O MANOWAR helped cement Valiant as one of the leading publishers in comics today and his contributions to the fabric of the Valiant Universe will continue to resonate for decades to come. But he won’t be leaving X-O MANOWAR quietly. What we have in store for X-O MANOWAR’s grand finale as we head toward issue #50 might just be Valiant’s most audacious turn to date. As Valiant prepares to celebrate X-O Manowar’s 25th anniversary in 2017, ‘LONG THE LIVE THE KING’ will be a colossal turning point for the character…and foreshadow even bigger changes yet to come in the future.”

Born into battle, Aric of Dacia – heir to the throne of the Visigoth Empire – never knew peace. Raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire in fifth-century Europe, Aric’s entire existence was spent fighting a never-ending insurgency against history’s most brutal empire…until a far more terrifying enemy revealed itself and changed his destiny forever.

Abducted by a brutal race of extraterrestrials known as the Vine, Aric wad forced into slavery on an alien world. Torn from family, his people and his nation, he spent years plotting his escape…until the day came that he was able to seize a weapon of incalculable destruction – a sentient suit of alien armor – and become X-O Manowar!

Returning to Earth only to find that 1,600 years have passed during his journey across the stars, the world’s most primitive man now wields the universe’s most powerful weapon. Working in concert with Earth’s governments and other super-powered heroes like himself, Aric has defended the planet, brokered peace amongst the powerful, and even rebuilt his kingdom from the ashes of history.

But now he faces a unthinkable new foe far more terrible than any that have come before… They are The Torment – and their name means death. Thought to be a legend by the Vine, they have now become Earth’s violent reality. As old as the universe itself, they have traveled for eons to reach us…in search of Aric of Dacia and the unstoppable X-O Manowar armor. Can Aric challenge a seemingly omnipotent threat with motives beyond the comprehension of mortal men? Will the armor truly be our world’s salvation, just as the Vine’s myths foretold? And is this the beginning of the end for X-O Manowar – or the beginning of something even bigger?

The march toward the greatest Valiant milestone of all time starts here as Robert Venditti, Joe Bennett, and Roberto de la Torre begin “LONG LIVE THE KING” this June in X-O MANOWAR #47 – featuring covers by Kano (Swamp Thing), Phil Jimenez (Amazing Spider-Man), Khoi Pham (Mighty Avengers), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Rafa Sandoval (X-O MANOWAR), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), and Jeff Lemire (Trillium)!

Plus: In celebration of X-O Manowar’s landmark issue #50 finale, Valiant is proud to reveal the X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY – also beginning in June’s X-O MANOWAR #47! For no extra cost, each issue of “LONG LIVE THE KING” will come bagged with one of 50 exclusive, 4-by-6 inch “micro-prints” featuring the one and only X-O Manowar as realized by a sensational cast of comics’ biggest talents – or full-blown, beautifully rendered original artwork randomly inserted in each issue! The X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY will continue all summer long across all issues of “LONG LIVE THE KING” – including the oversized, blockbuster issue #50 finale!

“X-O MANOWAR isn’t just the story of Aric of Dacia’s odyssey across time and space. It’s also the story of Valiant’s reemergence as the premier storytelling company in comics today, and Robert Venditti has been an integral member of the creative vanguard behind that success since day one,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Over the course of 56 issues, we’ve cemented X-O MANOWAR to his rightful place in the pantheon of comics’ greatest heroes and X-O MANOWAR #50 is the ultimate celebration of that achievement. To officiate it, we’ve set out to invest an unrivaled amount of energy and attention into X-O MANOWAR’s final four issues and to formally recognize this as the culmination of one of the greatest, most nuanced character arcs in the history of modern comics. Now, as we march toward issue #50, we’re preparing even greater surprises for X-O MANOWAR’s future – including the anniversary cover to end all anniversary covers. X-O MANOWAR #50 will be a milestone accomplishment in every sense of the term.”

The countdown to X-O MANOWAR #50 represents the epic culmination of Robert Venditti’s unmatched, 56-issue tenure on Valiant’s leading character. Since the release of X-O MANOWAR #1 in 2012, Venditti’s work on the series – alongside a star-studded line-up of artists including Cary Nord, Lee Garbett, Trevor Hairsine, Diego Bernard, Robert Gill, and many more – has gone on to the become the single longest consecutive run from any creator in Valiant’s history, as well as one of the longest consecutive runs on a single series from any creator in the industry today.

In the wake of the series’ final issue in X–O MANOWAR #50, Venditti will continue to contribute to Valiant’s award-winning publishing line with WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR and other as-yet undisclosed projects.

Look for many more details on X-O MANOWAR #50 and the X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY to be announced in the immediate future.
