A&A_003_COVER-A_LAFUENTEThey’ve faced golems, goblins, ninja-nuns, and even the disgruntled Greek god of wine and revelry… But, this May, can anything prepare Valiant’s award-winning adventurers for the unpredictable menace of…drunk Archer?!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #3 ­– the next palate-scorching chapter of “IN THE BAG” from red-hot rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)! Keep your distance on May 11th when Archer and Armstrong awake inside the insane maze of fine wines and lost treasures that Bacchus has constructed within Armstrong’s mystical satchel…only to find there isn’t enough coffee or aspirin left to bring Archer back from the brink of a black-belt blackout that will leave his friends and foes alike reeling!

At last…Bacchus’ diabolical plan stands revealed: get Archer and Armstrong drunk! Too bad one is an immortal with a liver of steel and the other is a bit of a lightweight.

The much-anticipated follow-up to the 11-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the “Best New Superhero of 2015” is here! The acclaimed creative team returns for a perfect new jumping-on point into the expansive sci-fi saga that shook the world!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther into space than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something unknown… Something that changed them.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with seemingly limitless power at his fingertips, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never had a chance to meet.

Now, Myshka, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth…but, unlike Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.

Earth is about to meet a new god. And she’s a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before DIVINITY?

“Faith and Archer are both good people in a world where good people are in short supply,” series writer Rafer Roberts told The A.V. Club. “I don’t want to give too much away but like most first dates, it’s cute and awkward and in constant danger of being ruined by super-villain sneak attacks.”

With Armstrong on the road, Archer is taking some much-needed personal time…and bringing his long-distance romance with Los Angeles’s number-one superhero off of FaceTime and into the real world! As these friends take their relationship to the next level, will romance conquer all? Or will they still find the time to brawl with some loan sharks? When a teenaged martial arts expert and a high-flying psiot get together, anything goes!

MEGA-COVER features Rai, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Shadowman, the Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and more of Valiant’s legendary heroes locked in battle against Father, the tyrannical ruler of New Japan!

It all starts here on May 4th in 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new, standalone event series following Rai and the 41st century’s most formidable heroes into the fight against New Japan from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) and superstar artists Clayton Crain (Carnage) and David Mack (Daredevil)!

One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people can thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below. Over the centuries, as New Japan orbits our increasingly unstable world, it will become a model society – one built on peace, prosperity…and Father’s control.

A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan’s justice well…and serve Father without question.

Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister secret at the heart of Father’s existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father’s kingdom…

Exiled from the only realm he’s ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself…on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth.

Earth must rise. Father must fall. Rai! Eternal Warrior! X-O Manowar! Bloodshot! Shadowman! Geomancer! And more! The war for the ultimate fate of humanity begins on May 4th in 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) by superstar creators Matt Kindt, Clayton Crain, and David Mack – and continues all summer long as “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” rages onto all 12 chapters of the 4001 A.D. INTERLOCKING MEGA-COVER by rising star Ryan Lee!

ECCC 2016: Eisner Award Nominee David Mack Joins Valiant’s 4001 A.D. #1 with Superstar Creators Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain – Coming in May!

4001_001_002Oversized First Issue of Valiant’s Blockbuster Summer Event Expands to a Colossal 40 Page Debut with Kindt, Crain, and Mack.

As revealed today at Emerald City Comicon 2016, Valiant is proud to announce that multiple Eisner Award-nominated artist David Mack (Fight Club 2, Daredevil) will join New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (RAI, X-Force) for 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s much-anticipated summer event uniting Rai with the 41st century’s greatest heroes in comic shops everywhere on May 4th!

“David Mack has a gorgeous, extraordinarily unique visual style, and I’m honored that he’s joining the formidable team of Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain for 4001 A.D. #1,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “We’ve called 4001 A.D. Valiant’s most ambitious event to date and now, with the addition of David, we’re readying what is sure to be one of the most intense creative visions of 2016. From start to finish, the entire team is fortifying a whole new idea of what the future can be. Comics don’t get any more satisfying – or much more beautiful – than this.”

To accommodate Mack’s stunning contributions to 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4)’s already jam-packed roster of surprises, the debut issue of the summer’s biggest comics event will now grow to a colossal 40 pages – all for the same previously solicited $3.99 cover price. Don’t miss the first shot fired in Rai’s revolutionary insurrection against the tyrannical forces of New Japan when 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) starts here on May 4th – and launches “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” into the stratosphere with an essential series of new arcs and one-shots in its a wake.

Encompassing the core 4001 A.D. event, the return of Valiant’s acclaimed RAI ongoing series, and four standalone one-shots revealing the future incarnations of the Valiant Universe’s most formidable heroes, “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” is the biggest and most visionary Valiant event to date – and a perfect introduction to the largest independent superhero universe in comics today.

After 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) arrives on May 4th, “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” explodes with the return of Rai’s award-winning ongoing series in RAI #13 – the FIRST ISSUE of an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT revealing the origin of New Japan and its very first guardian! Discover the essential history behind the dawn of 4001 A.D. here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK) and acclaimed artist CAFU (UNITY) unearth the answers behind Father’s tyrannical rise to power. How did New Japan come to orbit Earth? Who created Father? And just what is Rai’s true nature…and what happened to his nine earlier predecessors that once patrolled New Japan in his stead? Discover the shocking answers as RAI #13 returns to set the events of 4001 A.D. in motion – and reveals the epic arc of the Valiant Universe’s future history!

Then, “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” escalates even further as a staggering cast of superstar talents come aboard to reveal what the 41st century holds for Valiant’s most iconic heroes in a new series of four indispensable one-shots! Featuring X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Shadowman, and the debut of an all-new, top-secret character with a crucial tie to the present and future of the Valiant Universe, “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” erupts into full force here with four new chapters from Valiant’s most acclaimed creators, ripped directly from the pages of 4001 A.D.:

4001 A.D.: X-O MANOWAR #1
Written by Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH); Art by Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS)
Coming in May

4001 A.D.: BLOODSHOT #1
Written by Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN); Art by Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS)
Coming in June

4001 A.D.: SHADOWMAN #1
Written by Jody Houser (FAITH) & Rafer Roberts (A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG); Art by Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH)
Coming in July

4001 A.D.: [CLASSIFIED] #1
Written by [CLASSIFIED]; Art by [CLASSIFIED]
Coming in August

Each of chapter of “THE SUMMER OF THE 4001 A.D.” is designed for maximum accessibility and can be read in concert with the core 4001 A.D. series or stand on its own for a centuries-spanning vision of the future.

One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people can thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below. Over the centuries, as New Japan orbits our increasingly unstable world, it will become a model society – one built on peace, prosperity…and Father’s control.

A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan’s justice well…and serve Father without question.

Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister secret at the heart of Father’s existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father’s kingdom…

Exiled from the only realm he’s ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself…on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth.

Earth must rise. Father must fall. Rai! Eternal Warrior! X-O Manowar! Bloodshot! Shadowman! Geomancer! And more! The war for the ultimate fate of humanity begins in 4001 A.D. #1 (of 4) by superstar creators Matt Kindt, Clayton Crain, and David Mack – and continues in May and beyond as “THE SUMMER OF 4001 A.D.” rages on…and changes the future of the Valiant Universe for all time!

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)!
