A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin…with an all-new, prestige format mini-series from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) & Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!

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.

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, 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.

Coming in December from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger, Harbinger Wars) and rising star Robert Gill (Armor Hunters: Harbinger), start reading here to discover how Harbinger’s high-spirited teenage fangirl went from the heart and soul of Peter Stanchek’s teenage Renegades to the newest member of the world’s most elite super-team – UNITY!

As Faith recuperates from the events of Armor Hunters: Harbinger, jump on board and discover the complete, never-before-revealed tale of her origin – just as she steps into the limelight for a brand new story arc beginning in November’s UNITY #12!

Her first and only boyfriend to date is a little bit of a douche, her friends are all gone, and, after her insane adventure in Mexico City, Faith Hebert is feeling a little frustrated with the direction of her life.

From the comic shop of her youth to the moment she found out that she was actually light as feather, Zephyr is the western wind. Warm and kind, she blows across us all.

“She may not be physically strong, or brilliantly tactical, but her emotional intelligence and psychological strength are unparalleled among the other Renegades,” writer Joshua Dysart told Multiversity Comics. “I think some part of her understands that her light is needed even more in a world where you can lose your friends and face down horrible swarming alien insects. I think she sees a dark and violent world all around her and instead of that corrupting her, it reinforces her. Again, there’s a hint of that in this issue, but it’s also about a question we all ask ourselves, where do we go from here?”

This is HARBINGER: FAITH #0! Featuring covers by all-star artists Joe Quinones (Wednesday Comics), Lucy Knisley (Harbinger #25), and Brian Level (Lazarus), be here this December as one of the most unique, most sincere super-heroines anywhere in comics today takes on her very first solo adventure!

ALIENS VS…BLOODSHOT!

M.E.R.O. headquarters has been evacuated, and Bloodshot is the only thing left standing between the alien prisoner called Malgam and the outside world. Battle-worn and brutalized, can Bloodshot survive one final confrontation with an extraterrestrial foe augmented by the unholy power of the X-O Manowar armor? If you thought the first two chapters were hardcore, stay out of the splash zone because the Armor Hunters just picked the wrong soldier to fuss with!

THE DELINQUENTS #1 is for Sellouts – Second Printing Coming in October!

DELINQ_001_COVER_SECOND PRINTINGValiant is proud to announce that THE DELINQUENTS #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the first disastrous team-up between Quantum and Woody and Archer & Armstrong – has sold out at the distributor level and will return with a brand-new second printing in stores October 1st!

You demanded it, so we delivered it! Archer & Armstrong finally meet Quantum and Woody! Written by multiple Harvey Award nominee James Asmus (Quantum and Woody) and New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) with art by heat-seeking artist Kano (Gotham Central), start reading here as Valiant’s two most ill-suited and irresponsible pairs of “heroes” go head-to-head for a cross-country rat race…with only an ass-map to guide them!

For decades, the underground society of American hobos guarded one secret with their lives – the route to hobo paradise…aka Big Rock Candy Mountain, U.S.A. Only one map leading to its mythical location was ever made…and it was tattooed on the butt cheeks of one lone hobo guardian! In the years since, it has been flayed, dried, and split into two halves. Archer & Armstrong have the left cheek, Quantum and Woody hold the right. And, now, these two halves are about to set the competing duos off on a cross-country rat race where “O” marks the spot!

Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team… Archer & Armstrong are a mismatched pair of conspiracy-busting adventurers… Together…they make a really, really bad team! Stay out of the way because, on October 1st, they’re bringing the summer’s most out-of-control joyride back to comic book stores everywhere in THE DELINQUENTS #1 SECOND PRINTING!

Praise for THE DELINQUENTS #1:

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.

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!
