First Look: Peter Milligan and Cary Nord Conquer ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #2 – Coming in December!

EW_DOS_002_COVER_LAROSAValiant is proud to present an advance preview for ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #2 (of 3) – the next bone-breaking issue of the all-new limited series from legendary writer Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, Shade the Changing Man) and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (X-O Manowar, Conan)! Be here on December 3rd as two master storytellers unite to unleash a brutal chronicle torn from the blood-stained history of the Earth’s own immortal champion – the Eternal Warrior!

A child who will save his people was born in the wilderness, under a blood moon…and now Gilad Anni-Padda, the Earth’s Eternal Warrior, must guard him and train him to become the savior he was foretold to be! Meanwhile, the child’s own oppressed people begin to rally and fight the brutal army that rules them…but their only prize has been death. For thousands of years, the Eternal Warrior has stood under the grindstone of history, and held it back. But with so little hope – and a child whose narrow shoulders must bear the weight of an entire nation’s destiny – will this be the battle that finally forces surrender upon the Eternal Warrior?

From steel comes salvation! Can the Eternal Warrior deliver a conquered people’s only savior? Find out on December 3rd as Peter Milligan and Cary Nord take up the blade and revisit the roots of Earth’s undying protector in ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL #2 (of 3) – featuring covers by acclaimed artists Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX) and Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire)!

PUNK_ZERO_COVER-A_DAUTERMANOi!

In the tradition of HARBINGER #0, SHADOWMAN #0 and X-O MANOWAR #0, explore the eerie beginnings of New Orleans’ most unorthodox practitioner of the dark arts for the first time anywhere on November 19th!

Punk Mambo is about to head back home to spread some much-needed anarchy in the UK…and confront the ghosts of her past head on! The punks and the voodoo priests she used to know have cleaned themselves up, and she’s a loud, belching ghost from their past, come to break in the new furniture…and break some faces!

Featuring covers by Russell Dauterman (Thor), Rian Hughes (Batman: Black and White), and Kalman Andrasofszky (X-23), get up close and personal with the back alleys of the Valiant Universe in PUNK MAMBO #0 – in stores November 19th!

NYCC 2014: James Asmus and Steve Lieber Target QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 – Coming in January from Valiant!

QWMD_001_COVER_HAWTHORNECritical darlings. Comic book legends. Heroes for cash. Quantum and Woody are all this and less…but, in 2015, the world’s worst superhero team is dead meat!

As revealed today at New York Comic Con 2014, Valiant is proud to announce QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of a dastardly new limited series jumping-on point for the most nominated series of the 2014 Harvey Awards! The first in a new series of limited series for the world’s worst superhero team, start reading here as award-winning writer James Asmus (Gambit, Thief of Thieves) and Eisner Award-winning artist Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man) bring the most talked-about duo of semi-professional heroes in comics to a whole new high! (Unfortunately, there are a bunch of people that would like to kill them up there.)

They came. They saw. They pissed off a whole lotta folks. And now a team of mystery vigilantes has singled out the world’s worst superhero team out for complete and utter destruction. The first target: their minds! But who are all these all-new enemies? Are Quantum and Woody really hitting it off with a sexy duo of cat burglars? And, dear god, what have they done to the goat? Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Sex Criminals isn’t the only comic that can quote Queen, comics fans – here come Quantum and Woody! (Or so they think! [Trippy, right?!])

QWMD_001_VARIANT_ZDARSKY“All of a sudden, a half-dozen mysterious forces are operating against them that they’ve never seen before,” said writer James Asmus in an exclusive interview at Comic Book Resources. “It’s a whole batch of things that are both picking up where we left off and also feel like something’s changed off panel that both the reader and Quantum and Woody will be trying to figure out how we got there.”

Valiant’s a-number one team of super-hero misadventurers get it where it hurts – right in the cerebral cortex! – this January when James Asmus and Steve Lieber make their worst fears a reality 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), make with the sales on this one and we promise not to hurt the goat…maybe…

QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4). Coming in January. Only from Valiant Entertainment.

NYCC 2014: Valiant Debuts THE VALIANT #1 Animated Trailer, First Lettered Preview

A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin…

Valiant is proud to debut the official video trailer and first lettered interior preview for THE VALIANT #1 (of 4) – the all-new, prestige format limited series coming in December 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)!

An entirely self-contained 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.

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.

In stores December 10th, THE VALIANT #1 is the first epic title of VALIANT NEXT – an all-new wave of ongoing series and prestige format projects from some of the premier creative talents in comics today. Beginning with THE VALIANT #1, VALIANT NEXT continues with five blockbuster new series in 2015:

  • IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1 by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry in January
  • DIVINITY #1 (of 4) by Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine in February
  • IMPERIUM #1 by Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite in February
  • NINJAK #1 by Matt Kindt and Clay Mann in March
  • BLOODSHOT REBORN #1 by Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan in April

Following the critically acclaimed, smash-hit success of VALIANT FIRST in 2014, VALIANT NEXT will present six new starting points perfect for readers new and old. Featuring an exciting selection of new series starring Valiant’s biggest, most-demanded heroes alongside all-new, never before seen characters, VALIANT NEXT is the NEXT epic evolution of Valiant’s best-selling, fan-favorite publishing line.
