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
  • GENERATION ZERO #1 by Fred Van Lente & Francis Portela in August
  • BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) by Peter Milligan, Juan Jose Ryp, and Raul Allen in September

Retailer Advisory: The March Toward X-O MANOWAR #50 Continues with Two More Sold-Out Chapters for “LONG LIVE THE KING”!

XO_048_SECOND-PRINT_COVER_KANO XO_049_SECOND-PRINT_COVER_KANO

 

With the release of the giant-sized, 64-page X-O MANOWAR #50 anniversary milestone just weeks away, Valiant is proud to announce that two more chapters of “LONG LIVE THE KING” – the cataclysmic series finale of Robert Venditti’s seminal, 56-issue run on X-O MANOWAR – have sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves on September 28th with the X-O MANOWAR #48 SECOND PRINTING and X-O MANOWAR #49 SECOND PRINTING!

On shelves just in time to coincide with the release of X-O MANOWAR #50, the countdown to the greatest Valiant milestone of all time gets even bigger here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps) and acclaimed artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil) send the unstoppable X-O Manowar rocketing to the forefront of his most tumultuous battle yet…and leave the destiny of Valiant’s leading hero forever altered!

Born into battle, Aric of Dacia – heir to the throne of the Visigoth Empire – never knew peace. Raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire in fifth-century Europe, Aric’s entire existence was spent fighting a never-ending insurgency against history’s most brutal empire…until a far more terrifying enemy revealed itself and changed his destiny forever.

Abducted by a brutal race of extraterrestrials known as the Vine, Aric was forced into slavery on an alien world. Torn from his family, his people, and his nation, he spent years plotting his escape…until the day came that he was able to seize a weapon of incalculable destruction – a sentient suit of alien armor – and become X-O Manowar!

Returning to Earth only to find that 1,600 years have passed during his journey across the stars, the world’s most primitive man now wields the universe’s most powerful weapon. Working in concert with Earth’s governments and other super-powered heroes like himself, Aric has defended the planet, brokered peace amongst the powerful, and even rebuilt his kingdom from the ashes of history.

But now he faces an unthinkable new foe far more terrible than any that have come before… They are The Torment – and their name means death. Thought to be a legend by the Vine, they have now become Earth’s violent reality. As old as the universe itself, they have traveled for eons to reach us…in search of Aric of Dacia and the unstoppable X-O Manowar armor. Can Aric challenge a seemingly omnipotent threat with motives beyond the comprehension of mortal men? Will the armor truly be our world’s salvation, just as the Vine’s myths foretold? And is this the beginning of the end for X-O Manowar – or the beginning of something even bigger?

Long live the king! The end will be nigh as the entire Valiant Universe bears witness to the X-O MANOWAR #48 SECOND PRINTING and X-O MANOWAR #49 SECOND PRINTING – in stores on September 28th!

Then, after months of anticipation, the greatest Valiant milestone of all time arrives with a cosmic thunderclap on September 28th in X-O MANOWAR #50! This fall, don’t miss the biggest moment in Valiant history when Robert Venditti, Joe Bennett, and Roberto de la Torre salute X-O Manowar’s unparalleled 56-issue run with an oversized series finale for the ages! The Torment have come to our world in search of the secrets behind the sacred X-O Manowar armor. Now, they stand opposed by Aric of Dacia – former slave, noble warrior, resolute king, and current master of the armor’s near-limitless capabilities. But is one man…and one weapon…enough to repel a force capable of leveling a thousand civilizations? A whole new era for Earth’s greatest hero begins here on September 28th, only in X-O MANOWAR #50 – also featuring Jody Houser (FAITH) & Javier Pulido (Amazing Spider-Man), Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) & Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER), Philip Tan (Suicide Squad), Fred Van Lente (GENERATION ZERO) & Clayton Henry (SAVAGE), and many more!

Plus: The X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY continues right here for the X-O MANOWAR #48 SECOND PRINTING and X-O MANOWAR #49 SECOND PRINTING!

And meanwhile, back in the modern day, Ninjak must exhaust every resource at his disposal to find a cure for the mysterious, Deadside-spawned affliction that continues to destroy his body… But the clock is ticking fast and each step that MI-6′s master super-spy takes brings him one step closer to the grave!
