BSUSA_003_CAT-COSPLAY-COVERAcross the millennia-spanning arc of human history, mankind has celebrated many triumphs. But, from the pyramids to the moon landing, they all now pale in comparison to the landmark achievement that Valiant has bequeathed unto civilization…with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS!

To mark this most momentous occasion, Seattle’s Comics Dungeon will be officiating the December release of this all-new line of shelf covers with a live, in-person signing featuring stars (and real-life felines) Fawkes and Nak, alongside Freyu – creator of the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog and trusted human – on Saturday, December 17th!

Arriving in stores this December, bear witness as ordinary, household feline companions are transformed into the world’s most valiant heroes for a fur-bulous new line of shelf photo covers spanning 10 best-selling series! From teenage martial arts master Archer to reality-warping cosmonaut Divinity to sky-soaring sensation Faith and MI-6 super-spy Ninjak, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVER captures a furried friend pouncing into action as one of Valiant’s leading heroes inside a custom-built costume – tailor-made and photographed by the minds behind the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog.

Since being unveiled to a world unready to the absorb the full spectrum of their glory, Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS have gone from comic book sensation to full-blown viral phenomenon through all the corners of the internet (including the sketchy ones), who are hailing the publisher’s latest initiative as the greatest contribution to human-feline relations since the lint roller:

“This may be the best thing to happen in the history of comics.” – Book Riot

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. With the truth on his side, Colin King is about to mount a resistance with aid of the world’s most feared undesirables…and release the classified asset known as Abram Adams from a prison guarded by the CCCP’s greatest super powers. But when Myshka — the divinely powered enforcer of the Soviet Union — comes to crush their uprising, will the man once known as Ninjak live long enough to discover the sinister reason that the Stalinverse came to be?

The truth behind Valiant’s shocking new reality will finally be revealed as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY II) pull back the iron curtain and reveal the insidious mastermind who will stop at nothing to preserve this twisted world order!

It’s a hell of a day in the neighborhood.

The darkness bubbling beneath the miraculous town of Rook, Michigan is beginning to surface. As Generation Zero closes in on the vicious force abducting and killing teenagers, they quickly discover that this self-proclaimed utopia has been hiding a deep and disturbing secret that could destroy them all! But as the truth takes shape, will this reformed strike squad bring their first case to a close peacefully…or with a bang large enough to register on the Rictor scale?

The heat is on as New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (FAITH) light a fire under Valiant’s teenage superteam!

There are more than eight million people in New York City. And every single one of them just became Bloodshot.

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?

The city that never sleeps is about to get a wake-up call! Lock and load with New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Old Man Logan, Moon Knight) and blockbuster artist Doug Braithwaite (NINJAK, ARMOR HUNTERS) as the most hostile comics event of the year heads into the heart of the concrete jungle!

And the only thing holding their uneasy alliance together is a mysterious benefactor from the shadows… Someone who also goes by the name Darque…
