Valiant is proud to announce that veteran editor Tom Brennan has been named to the position of Associate Editor. Brennan begins his new role in the midst of the new VALIANT NEXT initiative, overseeing the launch of IVAR, TIMEWALKER by the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry. Additionally, Brennan will assist Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons on an ongoing basis on titles including NINJAK – beginning in March – by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and artists Clay Mann and Butch Guice, and X-O MANOWAR by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and artist Diego Bernard.

Brennan is the newest addition to Valiant’s rapidly growing editorial team, which includes Assistant Editor Kyle Andrukiewicz, Editor Alejandro Arbona, and Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons.

“Tom has already proven to be a great fit,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “His editorial experience stems from working on a long list of fantastic comics over the years. Great editors don’t come along often, and I’m thrilled to have him join the team.”

A six-year veteran of the editorial team at Marvel Entertainment and a Harvey Award nominee, Brennan has worked on some of the preeminent characters in comics with recent launches including Wolverine & The X-Men by Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar, and She-Hulk by Charles Soule and Javier Pulido. His series have ranged from the world of all-ages super-heroes in tiles like Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to mainstays of the Marvel line, where Brennan contributed to lengthy runs on Amazing Spider-Man as well as Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Venom, Thunderbolts, Savage Wolverine, and many more.

“Being a part of Valiant Entertainment might just prove that I’m the luckiest guy in comics,” said Brennan. “Watching Valiant not just survive but thrive in one of the toughest climates in publishing history was always inspiring, but to be a part of it is incredibly exciting. Moreover, Warren Simons is an editor I’ve looked up to for my entire career. This place is full of heart and hustle. I am so incredibly grateful to Dinesh Shamdasani, Fred Pierce, Gavin Cuneo and the whole crew for this warm welcome. I’m happy to be here and ready to get to work!”

“This is an exciting time at Valiant,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “The growth and success we have achieved is a testament to the creators and staff at Valiant HQ, who work tirelessly to produce the best comics possible. Tom has been a natural addition to the team and his presence is already being felt across the line.”

QWMD_001_COVER_HAWTHORNE

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of a dastardly new limited series from Harvey Award-nominated writer James Asmus(QUANTUM AND WOODY, Gambit) and Eisner Award-winning artist Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man)! On January 28th, jump on board here with a brand new beginning for the most nominated series of the 2014 Harvey Awards as Quantum and Woody face down a deadly gauntlet of kill-crazy enemies with only one goal – wipe the world’s worst superhero team off the map!

They came. They saw. They pissed off a whole lotta folks. And now a team of mystery vigilantes has singled out Quantum and Woody for complete and utter destruction. The first target: their minds! But who are all these all-new enemies? Are Quantum and Woody really in couples counseling? And, dear god, what have they done to the Goat? Is this real life? Or an elaborate deception? And just who – or what – is pulling the strings? When the dust settles only one thing will be certain – the world’s worst superhero team is dead meat!

Bet on the bad guys because the worst superhero duo on the streets are getting read their last rites – or are they?! – on January 28th in QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool), Johnnie Christmas (Sheltered), and Eisner Award winner Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals)!
