BLOODSHOT AND H.A.R.D. CORPS #16 Gives ‘Em Hell!

BSCORPS_016_COVER_ZIRCHERValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #16 from the all-star creative team of co-writers Christos Gage (Superior Spider-Man) and Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars) and artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor)!

H.A.R.D. Corps has just experienced its first fatality, Bloodshot is severely weakened, and the new rookies are a mess. It would be suicide to take on Toyo Harada and the combined might of the Harbinger Foundation now…so that’s exactly what Bloodshot and his new team of paramilitary superhumans are going to do.

The acclaimed series that Uproxx calls “a perfect read for action fans” dives right back in the deep end on November 20th, only in Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #16!

All-New VALIANT ZERO Issues Coming in 2014 – ARCHER #0, GOAT #0, H.A.R.D. CORPS #0, and More!


In the midst of UNITY…jump into the ongoing adventures of Valiant’s next breakout heroes with an all-new wave of Valiant zero issues in February and March!

Discover the origins and secret early exploits of the fan favorite heroes of the Valiant Universe right here with four essential jumping-on points, designed to bring new readers up to speed and lay the foundation for the next year of Valiant’s monthly series!

QW_GOAT_ZERO_COVER_FOWLERValiant’s all-new #0 initiative kicks off in February with ARCHER & ARMSTRONG: ARCHER #0 – revealing, at last, the untold story of young Obadiah Archer, where he came from, and just how can he do the incredible things that he does! (Which is everything, remember?) From the minds of writer Fred Van Lente and artist Pere Perez, start reading here to peer inside the war journal of a teenage assassin!

“[The] Archer #0 story is fairly dark and grim, because it involves Archer’s mind-numbingly horrible childhood,” writer Fred Van Lente told Newsarama today in an exclusive interview. “It’s a breather in the sense of less things explode and there are less crowd scenes than “Sect Civil War,” but I think on an emotional level and a character level we maintain the same steamroller pace.”

Also in February, the all-star creative team of Christos Gage, Joshua Dysart, and ChrisCross unleash BLOODSHOT AND H.A.R.D. CORPS: H.A.R.D. CORPS #0! Hey, remember the 90s? The most elite assets of Project Rising Spirit are teaming up for an early mission together — but, in the decade of dial-up, the technology is far from perfect and bugs are bound to pop up in the wetware…with disastrous results…

HAR_BLEEDING-MONK_ZERO_COVER_HENRYThen, coming in March, artist Tom Fowler returns to pull double duty with the world’s worst superhero team for QUANTUM AND WOODY: THE GOAT #0 – co-written by ongoing series writer James Asmus! Are heroes born or are they bred? Who – or what – spawned the powerhouse of animal husbandry known simply as Vincent Van Goat?

Also in March, original series creators Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans journey into the darkest corners of the Harbinger Foundation for HARBINGER: BLEEDING MONK #0. The Bleeding Monk, formerly Toyo Harada’s right hand, has been missing for over a year. Now, uncover the true whereabouts of Harada’s cryptic advisor – and the first of many secret revelations to come…

In 2014, discover the Valiant Universe with four all-new introductions to the boldest characters in comics in ARCHER & ARMSTRONG: ARCHER #0, BLOODSHOT AND H.A.R.D. CORPS: H.A.R.D. CORPS #0, QUANTUM AND WOODY: THE GOAT #0 and HARBINGER: BLEEDING MONK #0!

Timewalkers and Bar-Crawlers in ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #15!

AA_015_COVER_HENRYValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #15 – the next time-walking, history-smashing chapter of “Sect Civil War” by New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans!

WARNING: This is no longer a (FINGER QUOTES) “fun” comic. Now that the Sect Civil War has begun, it is now a (FINGER QUOTES) “grim” and (FINGER QUOTES) “gritty” work of (REAL QUOTES) “sequential literature” with blood and headshots and naughty words (like “H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS”) and if you squint real hard at the backgrounds, maybe boobies.

In this particular issue, the man now calling himself Dark Archer (NOTE TONAL SHIFT) must find his former partner Armstrong so they can reunite to stop the aforementioned Sect Civil War. Only, that is, if Armstrong and his brother, Ivar the Timewalker, can finish their 3,000 year binge in the time stream and sober up in time to change the Valiant Universe forever!

The all-out confrontation between the world’s most dreaded secret societies goes on a bender to mummy times and back in Archer & Armstrong #15 on November 13th – in stores the same day as UNITY #1!
