The war against Father is about to turn in favor of the 41st century’s revolutionary heroes as Rai finds his long-lost friends aboard the war-torn monstrosity that has become New Japan. But, reunited at last, can Rai and his band of allies – the Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, Lemur, Lula Lee, and more – stand against Father’s increasingly ruthless defenses?

First Look: “BLOODSHOT ISLAND” Hunts Jeff Lemire & Mico Suayan in BLOODSHOT REBORN #15 – Coming in July!

BSRB_015_COVER-A_GIORELLOThis July, Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan come ashore on “BLOODSHOT ISLAND”…and begin the hunt for the sinister secret of DEATHMATE all over again!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BLOODSHOT REBORN #15! On July 13th, it’s sun, surf, and suicide missions when New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Moon Knight) and Valiant-exclusive superstar-in-the-making Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN) plunge headlong into the next shocking chapter of “BLOODSHOT ISLAND“! As the unstoppable killing machine codenamed Deathmate hunts Bloodshot and his fellow castaways from Project Rising Spirit, all hope hinges on surviving the seemingly endless cycle of tortures that this tropical paradise turned killing field has to offer…

Live. Die. Rejuvenate. Each day, Bloodshot and his predecessors awake to find themselves hunted by the unstoppable engine of destruction called Deathmate. And each day, they die…only to begin their escape once more after the nano-technology inside them repairs their fatal injuries. As Bloodshot and his new teammates begin to understand the brutal logic behind their seaside prison, will the biggest threat to their survival be the horrors that await in the jungle around them…or each other?

On July 13th, no one escapes “BLOODSHOT ISLAND” unscathed as Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan bring a new dawn, a new day, and a new death to Valiant’s nanite-enhanced powerhouse! Featuring covers by Tomas Giorello (Conan), Ben Oliver (The Multiversity), Stephen Segovia (Action Comics), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Darick Robertson (The Boys), and Jeff Lemire (A.D.: After Death), the summer’s bloodiest blockbuster sets “BLOODSHOT ISLAND” ablaze, only in BLOODSHOT REBORN #15!

Plus: Coming this October, THE FUTURE OF VALIANT boils over in BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1 (of 4) – a pivotal new standalone comics event from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and Valiant-exclusive superstar Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice)!

In the tradition of THE VALIANT, the Big Apple turns blood red when Project Rising Spirit releases a top-secret contagion onto the streets of America’s greatest metropolis: New York City. As mayhem engulfs Manhattan, Bloodshot must lead the most dangerous invasion ever waged on American soil and keep a runaway pandemic from toppling armies and governments…and threatening to destroy humanity itself.

Beginning in July with FAITH #1, THE FUTURE OF VALIANT will extend throughout 2016 with a total of seven epic series – each introducing an innovative array of new concepts and characters…and firmly establishing Valiant’s place as the premier publisher of creative storytelling in comics today:

  • FAITH #1 by Jody Houser, Pere Perez & Marguerite Sauvage in July
  • GENERATION ZERO #1 by Fred Van Lente & Francis Portela in August
  • BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) by Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp in September

Valiant Reveals Star-Studded Cast of Creators for X-O MANOWAR #50 – A Giant-Sized Anniversary Milestone!

XO_050_001 (BRAITHWAITE)

64-Page Blockbuster Celebrates 2016′s Biggest Series Finale with Venditti, Braithwaite, Houser, Kindt, Nord, Pulido, and More Major Talents

It’s here! The greatest Valiant milestone of all time!

After unleashing a massive cast of 50 leading talents for the largest ever jam cover in comics history, Valiant is now proud to unveil the next massive revelation for X-O MANOWAR #50 – a colossal, 64-page anniversary spectacular crash-landing in stores everywhere this September!

For the first time anywhere, Valiant is honored to reveal the star-studded, history-making roster of writers and artists slated to contribute to September’s giant-sized X-O MANOWAR #50 finale – a blockbuster-style tribute to the vaunted, 56-issue run that set the Valiant Universe in motion!

For centuries, the sacred X-O Manowar has stood unrivaled as the universe’s most powerful weapon. Today, will it equal Earth’s doom? An unthinkable alien race known only as The Torment has come to our world in search of the armor’s secrets. Now, they stand opposed by Aric of Dacia – former slave, noble warrior, resolute king, and current master of the armor’s near-limitless capabilities. But are one man…and one weapon…enough to repel a force capable of leveling a thousand civilizations?

A whole new era for X-O Manowar begins here…and you won’t believe what’s coming next!

First: the seismic final story arc, “LONG LIVE THE KING,” goes out in a world-shaking blaze of glory with New York Times best-selling writer and longtime scribe Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps) and extraordinary artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil) manning the front line, alongside an all-star battalion of artists from across X-O MANOWAR‘s landmark 56-issue run: Cary Nord (Conan), Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Rafa Sandoval (Green Lantern), and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH)!

Spanning X-O Manowar’s five-year-long impact on the people of Earth, and setting the stage for star-spanning adventures yet to come in 2017 and beyond, no comic book fan can afford to miss the ultimate cosmic battle for the fate of Valiant’s most powerful hero!

Then: From all corners, the Valiant Universe assembles to salute X-O Manowar’s unparalleled impact as one of the longest running superhero series in comics today with all-new, never-before-seen tales and tributes from Jody Houser (FAITH) & Javier Pulido (Amazing Spider-Man), Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) & Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER), Philip Tan (Suicide Squad), and more along the way!

“Reaching 50 issues is no small feat in today’s marketplace, and Robert Venditti, Cary Nord, Doug Braithwaite, Trevor Hairsine, Diego Bernard, and Robert Gill – among a host of many others – have done an extraordinary job making X-O MANOWAR one of the most acclaimed, most vital, and most deftly executed series on the stands,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Issue #50 is a defining moment – one that will reassess not only the extraordinary journey the character has taken since 2012, but where he is headed next. This truly is the capstone for one of the most compelling and considered runs in modern comics, and the final salvo of a long-form epic that I believe will stand as one of Valiant’s great achievements for years to come.”

Plus: Valiant is marking 50 epic issues with a formidable line-up of covers from an all-star cast of comics greats! Leading the charge is the X-O MANOWAR #50 All-Star Jam Cover – the biggest-ever jam cover in comics history, featuring 50 major comics talents in celebration of 50 issues for Valiant’s flagship series! Debuting as X-O MANOWAR #50‘s standard shelf cover, this never-before-attempted comics breakthrough features a breathtaking collection of top talents as they each deliver an all-new take on Valiant’s leading hero in their own signature style.

Then, X-O MANOWAR #50‘s march into the history books continues with a stunning array of cover contributions from Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT), Marko Djurdjevic (Avengers), Marcos Martin (The Private Eye), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie), Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One), Pere Perez (FAITH), Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals), Philip Tan (Batman & Robin), Kaare Andrews (Astonishing X-Men), and Phil Jimenez (DC Universe: Rebirth)!

Finally, celebrate X-O Manowar’s landmark issue #50 finale with the X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY – 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!

Look for X-O MANOWAR #50‘s milestone finale in stores this September wherever comic books are sold!

Once upon a time…in the year 4001 A.D…

Centuries ago, Bloodshot was the man called Ray Garrison. Now, in the year 4001 A.D., Ray Garrison is no more…but the nanites that once thrived inside him endure still. With their master long since gone, the microscopic machines that once drove Bloodshot through every firefight, healed every wound, and calculated every outcome have one final directive left to execute…but what could it possibly be? And how will the forces of the future react when the infamous man-turned-machine called Bloodshot returns to fight another day?

The future starts now as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) bring Bloodshot barreling into the 41st century of the Valiant Universe with an all-new, standalone tale at the epicenter of 4001 A.D.!

FUTURE OF VALIANT First Look: Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp Command Myth, Monsters, and Murder for BRITANNIA #1 – Coming in September!

BRITANNIA_001_COVER-A_NORDOn the fringes of civilization, the world’s first detective is about to make an unholy discovery…

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new, Valiant Prestige format series coming this September from master storyteller Peter Milligan (X-Statix, Detective Comics) and incendiary artist Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK, Clone)! First revealed at #ValiantSummit 2016 live from New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, THE FUTURE OF VALIANT – Valiant’s new slate of must-read titles for 2016 and beyond – continues here as a decorated legionnaire-turned-investigator ventures from the height of civilization and into the ancient pagan lands of BRITANNIA to seek out the dark monstrosities that lurk beyond the bounds of Rome’s bloodied empire…

Ruled by the Fates. Manipulated by the Gods. Commanded by Caesar. In the year 65 A.D., one’s destiny was not his own. At the height of Nero’s reign, a veteran of Rome’s imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings… In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia – the First Detective – will become Rome’s only hope to reassert control over the empire’s most barbaric frontier…and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay…

“Since reading I, Claudius by Robert Graves as a teenager, I’ve been fascinated by the Roman world, and how that world affected these British Isles, pretty much obliterating the ancient Druid religion that had long existed until then,” writer Peter Milligan told The A.V. Club. “With the idea of Antonius Axia, I had a way into this story that had been waiting for me to write for some time.”

This September, Peter Milligan and Juan Jose Ryp lead a psychological journey into terror, temptation, and bloodshed, only in BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) – featuring covers from world-class creators Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark), Ryan Lee (Inhuman), and Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son)!

Then, THE FUTURE OF VALIANT continues with an all-new wave of ongoing series, prestige format projects and standalone events from a star-studded roster of some of comics’ most visionary talents! Beginning in July with FAITH #1, THE FUTURE OF VALIANT will extend throughout 2016 with a total of seven epic series – each introducing an innovative array of new concepts and characters…and firmly establishing Valiant’s place as the premier publisher of creative storytelling in comics today:

  • FAITH #1 by Jody Houser, Pere Perez & Marguerite Sauvage in July
  • GENERATION ZERO #1 by Fred Van Lente & Francis Portela in August
  • BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) by Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp in September
  • BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1 (of 4) by Jeff Lemire & Doug Braithwaite in October
  • HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 by Rafer Roberts & Darick Roberston in November
  • SAVAGE #1 (of 4) by B. Clay Moore, Clayton Henry & Lewis LaRosa in November
  • DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) by Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine in December
