On a scarred landscape, two otherworldly armies prepare to battle one last time, vying for control of a massive tower named from an ancient language no longer permitted to be spoken.

One army is led by a primeval force named Babel, whose goal is singular: to breach “Heaven” no matter the cost. The only thing standing in his way is a gray-haired barbaric warrior, filled with rage and regret, a man who sees this battle as his last chance for redemption. But he knows his depleted forces have little chance of victory unless aid comes.

Enter Tama: A 12-year old girl on the crest of a hill overlooking the battle, who has just become humanity’s only hope. The last in an ancient line of mystics who protect the Earth, she has foreseen this battle and knows millions will perish if she’s unable to stop it. Now Tama and her ragtag team of malcontents – Ninjak, Shadowman and Punk Mambo – must somehow defeat an elder god hell bent on piercing the heavens.

This summer, New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar) and artistic sensation CAFU (Rai) lead a Tolkien-esque journey into the space between life and death…through the Deadside…and into the many worlds that lie beyond right here with a spellbinding and horrific standalone event!

ComiXology Originals’ Valiant High Miniseries Debuts

VALIANT-HIGH_001_COVER_LAFUENTEAvailable today exclusively on comiXology and Kindle for $3.99 & free to comiXology Unlimited subscribers

February 22, 2017 New York, NY – Today, Valiant Entertainment and comiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comic shopping & reading platform, debut Valiant High #1, the first issue of a four-part, monthly miniseries by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer Daniel Kibblesmith, artist Derek Charm (Jughead) and David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn). Featuring eye-catching covers by artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man), the highly anticipated comiXology Originals series takes Valiant’s biggest and most beloved superheroes out of battle and into the greatest challenge of all: high school!

Unveiled last October, comiXology Originals is a new program featuring exclusive comic content available only on comiXology and Kindle. Valiant High #1 is available today for $3.99 on comiXology and Kindle or free to comiXology Unlimited  subscribers and as part of the comiXology Unlimited 30-day free trial. Valiant High is the first comic book miniseries in the comiXology Originals program.

A unique entry-point that’s perfect for new fans and longtime readers alike, Valiant High presents a hilarious reimagining of Valiant’s award-winning superhero universe – one where the next world-ending cataclysm will have to wait until after prom night! Before they became legends, the world’s most formidable heroes were roaming the halls at Valiant High – a super-powered preparatory academy where Aric “X-O Manowar” Dacia is a record-setting running back, Colin “Ninjak” King is a debonair foreign exchange student, and Coach Bloodshot is way, way too into dodgeball. Now, Amanda “Livewire” McKee and her best friend, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, are taking it all in for the first time at the one high school where power trumps popularity!

Taking place outside of Valiant’s standard continuity, Valiant High is packed with never-before-seen incarnations of the greatest icons from the largest independent superhero universe in comics – including Archer & Armstrong, the Death-Defying Dr. Mirage, the Eternal Warrior, Toyo Harada, Kris Hathaway, Peter Stanchek, Quantum and Woody, and many more. You’ve never seen the heroes of the Valiant Universe quite like this before!

“Valiant has one of the deepest and most diverse libraries of characters in the history of comics. From action-adventure to historical fiction and even comedy, our heroes lend themselves to an incredible array of settings and genres, and we’re always looking to challenge the notion of what kind of stories we can tell,” said Valiant Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo. “Now, in tandem with comiXology Originals, we’re proud to break new ground yet again with Valiant High and reinvent the Valiant Universe from the ground up in a hilarious new world that’s a perfect introduction to all of our most renowned superhero icons… From Archer & Armstrong to Faith to X-O Manowar and everyone in between.”

“With Valiant High, readers everywhere will have fun seeing established Valiant characters like Faith, Ninjak, and X-O Manowar face the trials and tribulations of high school,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications, “The creative team of Kibblesmith, Charm and Baron deliver a hilarious story that new readers will love, while also giving core Valiant fans a fresh way to enjoy their favorite characters.”

In addition to this exciting launch, comiXology is having a 50% off sale on all Valiant Entertainment collections released prior to 1/1/2017. Beginning today, readers new and old can stock up, save and discover the heroes behind Valiant High with first appearances and seminal storylines from series including Bloodshot Reborn, Divinity, Faith, Rai, Unity, The Valiant, Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, and many more. Exclusively through comiXology and Kindle, Valiant High issues #2 – #4 will  be available for pre-order today!

Bringing exclusive comic content to comiXology and Kindle, the comiXology Originals lineup not only includes this release from Valiant Entertainment, but also BOOM! Studios and the upcoming Marley’s Ghost by the legendary Harvey Kurtzman, which is available for pre-order. ComiXology Originals are digital only and exclusively available for comiXology and Kindle customers.

Valiant’s appearances on the 2017 Vans Warped Tour® will benefit the publisher’s ongoing charitable partners at The Keep A Breast Foundation – a leading nonprofit organization with a mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support.

“For 23 years, the Vans Warped Tour has been such a great platform for bands, brands, and creative minds,” said Vans Warped Tour® Founder Kevin Lyman. “It’s always fun to be able to do collaborations, and this partnership with Valiant Entertainment is very special from a creative standpoint.”

“This is a groundbreaking partnership on many levels, and we’re honored and excited to call the Vans Warped Tour our newest partner,” said Russell A. Brown, President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales for Valiant Entertainment. “The Vans Warped Tour is an institution, and comics are the next logical extension of their hugely influential footprint. There’s a huge reciprocity between music and comics, and we were happy to find that there are just as many fans in their camp as there are in ours. We look forward to doing awesome things together in 2017 and beyond.”

Now in its 23rd year, the 41-date tour will commence June 16 in Seattle, WA and end on August 6 in Southern California.

The entire lineup for 2017′s Vans Warped Tour®, presented by Journeys®, will be released on Wednesday, March 22nd.

Tickets will also go on sale Wednesday, March 22nd at 10:00AM local time at vanswarpedtour.com.

As a bonus for early ticket buyers, the first 500 tickets sold for each show will be at the lowest price available and will include a digital download of the Official Vans Warped Tour® 50-song compilation.

Red rebellion!

Across continents, the world bows to the oppressive and ruthless might of the global Russian regime. Former Russian intelligence officer Colin King, however, knows that this reality is not his own.

ComicsPRO 2017: Valiant Previews First Year of Matt Kindt’s X-O MANOWAR with Tomas Giorello, Doug Braithwaite, and Clayton Crain

XO2017_003_COVER-A_LAROSAAward-Winning Publisher Unveils Multiple Months of Artwork for 2017’s Biggest Ongoing Launch

As revealed today at IGN, Valiant has unveiled a massive trove of artwork from X-O MANOWAR – Valiant’s cosmos-shaking ongoing series epic from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt, alongside blockbuster artists Tomas GiorelloDoug BraithwaiteClayton Crain, and more – in advance of the annual ComicsPRO conference in MemphisTN.

Representing the culmination of months of behind-the-scenes planning and preparation from some of the top creative talents in comics today, the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 – in stores March 22nd – will launch one of the definitive Valiant epics ever told…and bring Aric of Dacia to a landmark turning point that will be felt for years to come. Exotic alien planets, powerful new characters, and relentless adversaries will stand revealed as Aric of Dacia rises from “SOLDIER” to “GENERAL” to “EMPEROR” to “VISIGOTH” in a star-shattering adventure like no other in comics today!

Across summer 2017, X-O Manowar’s interplanetary war escalates as he graduates from “SOLDIER” to the next heart-stopping phase of his cosmic crusade! First, in June, extraordinary artist Doug Braithwaite comes aboard the most important Valiant tale of 2017 for “GENERAL” in X-O MANOWAR #4 – the FIRST ISSUE of an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT chronicling Aric of Dacia’s one-man takeover of a battle-ravaged alien world! Then, in September, comics superstar Clayton Crain enters the battlefield to begin “EMPEROR” in X-O MANOWAR #7 – the FIRST ISSUE of an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT delivering Earth’s alien-armored hero to the apex of power on a hostile extraterrestrial world!

“We have five exceptional artists on board before issue #1 even launches, each of whom are brilliant talents who are absolute forces in the marketplace,” Valiant Editor-In-Chief Warren Simons told IGN. “Tomas Giorello, who is doing some of the most beautiful work of his career, kicks things off with our “Soldier” arc in issue #1, which is heavily influenced by movies like “Saving Private Ryan” and “Unforgiven”.  The work Tomas is doing here is absolutely jaw dropping, and the response we’ve seen from his pages has been phenomenal.”

“2017 is X-O Manowar’s 25th anniversary and Matt had an intriguing idea… Instead of celebrating with a return to Aric’s status quo, let’s make the character a truly cosmic force to be reckoned with and thrust him into a whole new scenario – a lone human, bonded to an alien weapon, forced to fight on a hostile yet exotic extraterrestrial world,” Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani also told IGN. “Matt and the five-strong art team of Tomas Giorello, Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, and Mico Suayan are doing something we haven’t seen yet with this character – making him a literal “man of war” that’s about to take on not just an army, but an entire planet, over the course of 2017.”

This summer, the galaxy belongs to X-O Manowar! The stars will be stained with blood as Tomas GiorelloDoug Braithwaite and Clayton Crain join Matt Kindt for a visionary tale of one man waging interplanetary war at the galaxy’s farthest reaches, only in X-O MANOWAR!

But first: Witness history in the making on March 22nd in the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of THE EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and powerhouse artist Tomas Giorello!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

Robert Venditti & Renato Guedes Chronicle the Coming of ETERNAL WARRIOR: AWAKENING #1 – Coming in May!

EW-AWAKE_001_COVER-A_CRAINValiant’s Next 25th Anniversary One-Shot Explores the Most Ancient of Days for Earth’s Fist & Steel

As revealed today at Newsarama, Valiant is proud to announce ETERNAL WARRIOR: AWAKENING #1 – a punishing standalone special celebrating 25 years of Valiant’s immortal soldier…and revealing a never-before-told tale of his earliest adventures at the dawn of civilization! On May 10th, take up arms alongside New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps) and acclaimed artist Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Reborn, Wolverine) as they unleash the second of four special issues honoring the most beloved Valiant tales ever with a formative chapter in the life of Gilad Anni-Padda…and celebrating the original ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 by comic legends Jim Shooter and John Dixon!

“I think there’s a tendency to interpret Gilad as very dark and grim, since he’s been a warrior for, well, eternity. It’s right there in the title. But I see him as an eternal optimist,” writer Robert Venditti told Newsarama. “He believes humanity is far more good than bad, and that the battle of good versus evil will be won one day. Otherwise, what makes him get out of bed and sacrifice so much to keep going? Really, I look at the Eternal Warrior, and beneath all the battles and bloodshed, I see an unending wellspring of hope.”

On the brink of carving out victory in the most violent battle of his life, Gilad Anni-Padda suffers a devastating injury. He awakens weeks later in a strange land, nursed back to health but with no memory of his past. A tribe has shown him compassion in an age of cruelty, and he will return their gift in kind. Now the real violence will begin…

On May 10th, discover the man behind the sword as the Earth’s relentless guardian begins a soul-scorching battle against eternity itself, only in ETERNAL WARRIOR: AWAKENING #1! Featuring covers by superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D., Carnage), rising star Robert Gill (Book of Death), acclaimed artist Marc Laming (Ninjak), and astonishing artist Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), witness the dawn of the Valiant Universe firsthand with an essential one-shot celebrating 25 years of an indelible comic book icon – the unrelenting Eternal Warrior!

Plus: On April 12th, Valiant’s 25th anniversary celebration starts with a swashbuckling adventure as New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) and Eisner Award winning artist Cary Nord (X-O Manowar) present IMMORTAL BROTHERS: THE TALE OF THE GREEN KNIGHT #1 – a special 48-page quest into Arthurian legend with Archer & Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior, and Ivar, Timewalker! And look for two more celebratory one-shots honoring Valiant’s most memorable tales throughout 2017.
