Harbinger team-up!

Mexico City just became ground zero for the Armor Hunters’ invasion of Earth, and the runaway army of super-powered soldiers called Generation Zero needs to bring in back-up. Better call…the Renegades?! But when powerhouse brawler Torque and lighter-than-air free spirit Zephyr join the fight, things are about to go from bleak to brutal as the Earth’s first extraterrestrial invasion force unleashes an engine of global destruction with one sole purpose – to terminate…with extreme prejudice.

ARMOR HUNTERS Rockets into Multiple Sell-Outs, Reloads with Four New Printings Coming in September!

AH_003_COVER_SECOND-PRINTINGValiant is proud to announce that four installments of ARMOR HUNTERS – the summer’s globe-spanning, smash-hit crossover event starring X-O Manowar, Unity, Bloodshot, and more of Earth’s most formidable heroes as they defend the planet from the galaxy’s most feared, most relentless team of alien powerhouses – have sold out at the distributor level and will soon return to store shelves with new printings in September and October!

First up, on September 24th – arriving in stores alongside the action-packed final confrontation between X-O Manowar and the Armor Hunters in ARMOR HUNTERS #4 (of 4) – look for ARMOR HUNTERS #3 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (Unity); and the ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING and ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #2 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING by acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Great Pacific) and bone-breaking artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis)!

Then, on October 1st – hitting shelves alongside the storyline’s must-read one-shot epilogue in ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1 – pick up the ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger) and red-hot rising star Robert Gill (Eternal Warrior)!

Re-presenting four essential chapters of the armor-plated crossover that Comic Vine calls “an event that lives up to the hype,” it’s not too late to find out why ARMOR HUNTERS is the heat-seeking storyline that’s had fans and critics talking all summer.

“From start to finish, ARMOR HUNTERS has been nothing short of a resounding success with fans, and we’re continuing to see demand for each issue as the storyline rushes toward its must-be-seen-to-be-believed finale at the end of September,” said Publisher Fred Pierce. “The first two issues of ARMOR HUNTERS – along with UNITY #8 and X-O MANOWAR #26 – have already returned to press, and we couldn’t be more proud to now add another four titles to that list. With another month to go, ARMOR HUNTERS is already well on its way to becoming one of the most well-remembered and affecting crossovers in recent memory. This is precisely the kind of storytelling, scope, and scale that is setting Valiant apart in the industry.”

When Aric of Dacia returned to Earth with the stolen X-O Manowar armor of an alien race, he thought he finally found a weapon to guard the peace and kingdom he’d struggled so long to secure. But now, a relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the armor and all like it – have found their final target. The Armor Hunters are coming. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

Just as ARMOR HUNTERS # 4 (of 4) and ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1 hit stores, get a front row seat for the devastating consequences of the Armor Hunter’s attack in the ARMOR HUNTERS #3 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING, ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING, ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #2 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING, and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) SECOND PRINTING – on sale in September and October!

QUANTUM AND WOODY Get VALIANT-SIZED with Tim Siedell, James Asmus, and Pere Perez in December!

QW_VALIANT-SIZE_001_COVER_ZDARSKYReality hopping, multiple Woodys, and certain destruction? Welcome to life in the Woody-Verse! This December, if you thought one Woody was too much, get ready for VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1!

As revealed at io9.com, writer and comedian Tim Siedell (@badbanana, Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows) is joining Harvey Award nominees James Asmus (Quantum and Woody, The Delinquents) and Pere Pérez (Archer & Armstrong) to launch the world’s worst superhero team into an overloaded adventure that only a VALIANT-SIZED 40-page giant could possibly handle!

When an asteroid with a fifty-fifty chance of hitting Earth is spotted hurtling toward the planet, the unlikely super-team of Quantum and Woody are drafted onto the international team of specialists tasked with stopping it! But when the duo inadvertently cause a training exercise to go horribly wrong, they manage to doom the entire planet along with the only team capable of saving it. With few options and less time, Woody decides to ditch our world and escape into another through a secret space-time rift created by his arch-nemesis – old timey clone-Frankenstein-robot Thomas Edison! (No…you shouldn’t ask.) Our Woody’s betrayal, however, leaves the door to our dimension open to THEIR counter-Woody and his own counter-asteroid…leaving two worlds in the balance as two Woodys cut a reckless rampage through the multiverse! (Yes…it’s complicated.)

QW_VALIANT-SIZE_001_VARIANT_HAWTHORNE“A giant Earth-crushing asteroid is heading this way, forcing an uneasy alliance of international and interpersonal foes to put aside differences and work together to save mankind,” writer Tim Siedell told io9.com. “Quantum and Woody join forces with Edison, as well as a North Korean superhero and a rabidly anti-Semitic, but otherwise genius, nuclear scientist. This is Earth’s hastily-assembled Dream Team (or Nightmare Team, depending on how you look at it). It’s a story so big it can’t be contained on one Earth.”

Featuring covers by Eisner Award winner Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals) and acclaimed artist Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool, Fear Agent) – plus a partially completed “Draw Your Own ‘Blank’ Cover” on virgin board stock by “Most Promising New Talent” Harvey Award nominee Pere Pérez (Archer & Armstrong) – Quantum and Woody’s first perilous voyage into the Woody-Verse might just mean the end of all mankind!

Find out who lives…who dies…and which evil doppelgänger has the best goatee…when VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 leaps into comic shops everywhere this December!

First Look: Peter Milligan and Cary Nord Usher in ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #1 – Coming in November!

EW_DOS_001_COVER-A_HITCHFrom steel comes salvation!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new three-issue mini-series chronicling the brutal and bloodied history of Valiant’s immortal champion from master storyteller Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, X-Statix) and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (X-O Manowar, Conan)!

For more than 10,000 years, the Eternal Warrior has stood on guard, protecting the Earth from all who would seek to do it harm. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. Confident in his role, the Eternal Warrior believed he had seen and survived it all…until a mysterious quest in the tenth century led him to question the very foundation of his existence. After completing another brutal mission at the behest of the Geomancers, the Earth’s undying guardian is approached with a cryptic task: to find and save a newborn child – in whose hands might rest the fate of an entire people. But when a thousand conquering Magyar invaders join the quest for the child, can history’s most expert killer be trusted to keep one precious life alive?

Swords! Savagery! Steel! Before Gilad joins Bloodshot and an all-star cast of Valiant’s greatest heroes in December for a brand-new crusade against the Immortal Enemy in THE VALIANT #1 by Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera, take up the blade and discover the roots of Earth’s undying champion in ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #1 – in stores this November!

First Look: THE VALIANT #1 – Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera Begin An Epic New Adventure in December!

THE-VALIANT_001_COVER_RIVERAA battle ten millennia in the making…

Valiant Entertainment is proud to present the first look inside THE VALIANT #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new prestige format, four-issue limited series beginning in December from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) and Matt Kindt (RAI, UNITY, Mind MGMT), and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!

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

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.

Featuring covers by Paolo Rivera, Jeff Lemire & Matt Kindt, and Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie), a universe-spanning journey featuring all of Valiant’s biggest heroes begins this December in THE VALIANT #1!

Death was just the beginning…

Doctor Mirage talks to the dead…but the only spirit Shan Fong can’t find is that of her late husband, Hwen. Instead, America’s favorite semi-retired paranormal investigator is haunted and raw, using her gift to solve homicides and bring peace to the recently bereaved. But when a big-time occultist with a classified military past hires her for a special job, Shan discovers a lead that might close the greatest mystery she’s ever tackled – how to get Hwen back. Now, Doctor Mirage must enter the undiscovered country and cross all the realms of the underworld, if she has any hope of rescuing the man she loves…or be forever lost beyond the earthly plane.
