Valiant Breaks the Internet with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY Covers – Clawing onto Shelves in December!

FAITH_006_CAT-COSPLAY-VARIANTFirst came fire… Then the wheel… Now, after centuries of struggle, the most acclaimed publisher in comic books today is proud to present the next great advancement in human civilization: the VALIANT CAT COSPLAY cover!

As revealed today at ComicBook.com, Valiant is bringing the three capital Cs of popular culture – cats, comics, and cosplay – together for the first time anywhere in December as ordinary, household feline companions are transformed into the world’s most valiant heroes for a fur-bulous new line of shelf photo covers spanning 10 best-selling series! From teenage martial arts master Archer to reality-warping cosmonaut Divinity to sky-soaring sensation Faith and MI-6 super-spy Ninjak, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY cover captures a furried friend pouncing into action as one of Valiant’s leading heroes inside a custom-built costume – tailor-made and photographed by the minds behind the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog.

Featured by CNET, CrunchyRoll, the Daily Mail, Geek and Sundry, IGN, Kotaku, Mashable, NPR, Paste Magazine, Tech Times, and dozens more around the world, Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety is the gold standard of the “cat cosplay” genre and boasts a legion of fans and followers across Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook since its creation in early 2015. Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers mark their first officially sponsored collaboration with a comic book publisher or entertainment company.

“This might be the single best thing anyone anywhere has done, ever,” said Valiant Assistant Editor Lauren Hitzhusen. “All of Valiant’s numerous accomplishments – the biggest debut of a new publisher in more than a decade, the best reviews in the industry, a record-setting 50 nominations at this year’s Harvey Awards – pale in comparison to the glory that you now behold before you. But, all joking aside… No, really, this is the best.”

Available as “order-all” covers across all of Valiant’s December 2016 series, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY cover will be available for retailers to order in unlimited quantities at the standard suggested retail price:

  • A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #10
  • BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #3 (of 4)
  • BRITANNIA #4 (of 4)
  • DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4)
  • FAITH #6
  • GENERATION ZERO #5
  • HARBINGER RENEGADES #2
  • NINJAK #22
  • SAVAGE #2 (of 4)
  • WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #14

A portion of the proceeds from all VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers sold will benefit the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition (BARC), a New York-based non-profit that operates a beloved, no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. BARC’s mission is to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals – with quality food, shelter, medical attention, and the love they deserve – and to find permanent loving homes for them.

They’re intrepid! They’re fearless! They’re cats! This December, the animal kingdom is invading the Valiant Universe…and cat lovers and comics fans will finally stand united when VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers scratch their way onto shelves worldwide! Contact your local comic shop to pre-order your VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers today! (Lint roller not included.)

First Look: Kindt & Hairsine Rewrite Reality for DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 – An Event-Level Epic Beginning in December!

DIVINITY-III_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICIn 2015, Earth prepared to meet a new god…a lost Communist cosmonaut known only as DIVINITY.

In 2016, the nations of the world bent before DIVINITY II.

This December, a new world order takes control as DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE rewrites the fabric of reality itself!

As revealed today at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the event-level epic from the visionary DIVINITY creative of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and master colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Planetary)!

This winter, the sold-out sci-fi saga that redefined the Valiant Universe begins a reality-shattering comics event that will collide the world’s most formidable heroes with a disturbing new vision… One where a worldwide Soviet empire now rules a world order… The Iron Curtain extends across continents, shattering governments and armies in its wake… And the communist global super-state rules not only with an iron fist, but powers far beyond the comprehension of mortal men.

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

“STALINVERSE has always been something we’ve been building towards since the very beginning of DIVINITY,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “This series will not only have major repercussions for every key hero and villain in the Valiant Universe, but will also give us our first glimpse of new characters with a long-term trajectory. From HARBINGER WARS to BOOK OF DEATH to 4001 A.D., Valiant’s events have always been big, but Matt and Trevor are elevating the stakes to a truly global concern here – they’re building not just an event, but an entirely new and terrifying world.”

On December 21st, reality runs red as Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine present the most startling comics event of the season in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – presented in the deluxe VALIANT PRESTIGE format and featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Tom Muller (Zero), Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), and Adam Gorham (The Violent)!

Plus: stay tuned as the STALINVERSE spreads with four top-secret DIVINITY III one-shots detailing the redacted history of the Soviet Union’s most notorious patriots, agitators, and outcasts in December and beyond!

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…

From comics mastermind Peter Milligan (X-Statix, Shade the Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK, Clone) comes a psychological journey into terror, temptation, and bloodshed – presented in an all-new prestige format limited series!

Retailer Advisory: 4001 A.D.’s Sold-Out WAR MOTHER #1 Fires Back with Second Printing in October

4001-WM_SECOND-PRINT_001_COVER_MACKFollowing on the wake of 4001 A.D.’s massive conclusion, Valiant is proud to announce that 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – featuring the first appearance of the 41st century’s next major hero – has sold out at the distributor level and will rocket back onto store shelves everywhere on October 12th with the 4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 SECOND PRINTING! In the tradition of DIVINITY, the must-read debut of Valiant’s newest groundbreaking power player starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (GENERATION ZERO) and Valiant-exclusive superstar Tomas Giorello (BLOODSHOT REBORN) present War Mother’s baptism by fire with a standalone tale spiraling out of Rai’s cosmic rebellion with New Japan!

In the 41st century, much of the planet has been reduced to a barren wasteland. New Japan orbits the Earth as a floating oasis that towers over the ashes of the old world. The survivors of this desolate new age, robbed of the planet’s once-lush natural resources, must endure great hardships to survive. Amidst the devastation, one outpost of scientific knowledge has thrived by adhering to a strict code of isolation. But even the denizens of this walled city must venture out into the wasteland to gather supplies from the remnants of what was. This task is designated to one and one alone: War Mother.

But all is not peaceful, even in New Japan. When the space-faring empire begins jettisoning city-sized sectors to Earth during the onset of a civil war, War Mother is called upon with a new mission: mega-salvage! Armed with a newly born sentient sniper rifle, War Mother is a one-woman army bent on sacking the crash-landed sector’s technology-laden debris for anything of value to her tribe. But, as calm turns to chaos, Sector 8146 will reveal a telling secret about Earth’s true order that will collide War Mother against her community, her code, and her calling…and bring destruction down upon one of humanity’s last surviving outposts of order.

As War Mother makes her history-smashing debut, critics everywhere are heralding her as the next great addition to Valiant’s all-star arsenal of superhero icons in this century…or the next!

ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! Valiant’s immortal master of war makes A DEAL WITH A DEVIL!

Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior, has sacrificed his humanity for the betterment of the Earth. Empowered with the gift to recover from any wound – and even death itself – he has waged an endless crusade to guide the path of civilization through the ages. But as the centuries pass and his list of battlefield victories grows, he is fated to always reap the same sad reward: to see his families, his children, and all his loved ones…age, wither, and die…

Now, the Eternal Warrior will be presented with a choice that could end his grief forever. An opportunity to resurrect the fallen sons and daughters that he believed forever lost. But this chance for peace and happiness will come at a terrible cost… and in service to an evil far greater than any Gilad has faced before…

New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps) and acclaimed artist Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH) push the Eternal Warrior to the fiery crossroads of guilt and redemption for a wicked new jumping-on point as A DEAL WITH A DEVIL takes hold!

First Look: BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #2 ­– Jeff Lemire & Doug Braithwaite Bring Madness to Manhattan in November!

BSUSA_002_COVER-A_BRAITHWAITEThere are eight million people in New York City…and every one of them just became a killing machine!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #2 (of 4) – the next borough-burning chapter of the fall’s blockbuster standalone event from “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT“! On November 23rd, New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Death of X) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice) infect every city dweller from the Bronx to Broadway with the same nanite-enhanced technology that transformed Bloodshot into America’s most dangerous soldier! Now, as the population of New York City turns on itself, Bloodshot must race against the clock to infiltrate the quarantine zone and deactivate the virus before the entire nation starts seeing red!

With the flip of a switch, Project Rising Spirit has just infected every man, woman, and child in New York City with a designer “nanite virus,” instantly transforming them into hard-coded killing machines. Now, block by block, the citizens of America’s greatest metropolis are falling prey to their own destructive urges…and Bloodshot is the only soldier tough enough to go head-to-head with the entire Big Apple gone bad! With the humanity of an entire city on the line, Bloodshot is waging a one-man assault on Manhattan to root out the source of this machine-made infection before it hits the heartland… but will bullets and brute force be enough to stop the spread of a pandemic deadlier than anything in human history?

On November 23rd, superstar creators Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite are going to give the city that never sleeps a wake-up call as the most hostile comics event of 2016 heads into the heart of the concrete jungle in BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #2 (of 4) – featuring covers from Doug Braithwaite (NINJAK), Stephen Segovia (Action Comics), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Darick Robertson (HARBINGER RENEGADES), and Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.)!

Plus: “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, and Colleen Doran in July

  • BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) by Peter Milligan, Juan Jose Ryp, and Raul Allen in September
