We’ve set out to make the best and most ambitious series ever produced in the digital space – one that will live up to the high standards we’ve set in publishing,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “As Valiant gears up for an upcoming slate of film, television and video game releases, we felt the timing was right to begin to produce live-action digital content that would both give ours fans an experience truly worthy of the Valiant Universe, while also introducing new fans to the Valiant characters in the same way the animated television shows of the 1980s and 1990s did for comics in years past. Get ready to lose your mind – seeing Ninjak in action for the first time is nothing short of incredible.”

In concert with POP Life Entertainment, Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce that a strictly limited, Asian import edition of the forthcoming, first-of-its kind Faith Pop! Asia vinyl figure will be made available at the East Coast’s biggest comics and pop culture event in advance of its 2017 mass market release.

The first Valiant Pop! Asia vinyl collectible features Faith “Zephyr” Herbert – the high-flying hero of Los Angeles that captured the attention of the world with her five-time sold-out solo series debut in 2016 – will be available only at the Valiant Entertainment booth (#1635)!

This Asia-only convention import is an advance sneak peek into Valiant’s worldwide collectible and apparel merchandising efforts – the latest of which will begin hitting shelves in North America and Europe in 2017.

Also debuting at NYCC 2016, Valiant’s stratospheric Pop! Asia vinyl debut continues with an exclusive collection of apparel, including the Faith Pop! t-shirt and Faith Pop! hat – each showcasing the energetic Pop! Asia vinyl design of the year’s breakout super-heroine!

Valiant Entertainment and Keep A Breast Join Forces to Fight Breast Cancer with New Ongoing Partnership

FAITH_003_VARIANT_KEEP-A-BREASTValiant’s Breakout Heroine Faith to Debut as Leading Non-Profit’s Official Comics Ambassador at New York Comic Con 2016   

Valiant Entertainment – the award-winning publisher of the largest independent superhero library in comics – and The Keep A Breast Foundation – the leading global youth-based breast cancer prevention organization – are proud to announce a new ongoing partnership dedicated to furthering the California-based non-profit’s ongoing mission with new initiatives in educational publishing, fundraising merchandise, convention and exhibitions outreach around the world, and much more.

As detailed today at Fast Company, the new face of this first-of-its-kind collaborative partnership will be Valiant’s own leading super-heroine, Faith, who will make her debut as Keep A Breast’s official “comics ambassador” at New York Comic Con 2016. Faith will then subsequently be utilized throughout a number of Keep A Breast promotional endeavors globally in 2016 and beyond.

“The foundation of everything Keep A Breast does is art, and it absolutely thrills us to team up with people, like Valiant Comics, that are breaking the norm in their own industries,” said Keep A Breast Founder & CCO Shaney jo Darden. “When we read Faith, we were so excited to see a hero that was so funny, real, and full of self-love. Art has the power to heal and impact people in the best way, and this partnership will further prove how art can put a spotlight on real issues and start important conversations that can save lives.”

“Creativity can be the catalyst for great change, and it is often said there is no medium more creative than comic books,” said Valiant Chief Operating Officer & CFO Gavin Cuneo. “With Faith at the forefront of a wide variety of upcoming Keep A Breast programs, we look forward to aiding them in their vitally important and all-too-needed cause of combating breast cancer through art, education, and the creative spirit. As one of the most optimistic heroes in comics today, Faith is already an inspiration to many. Now, in her new role as an ambassador on Keep A Breast’s behalf, it is our sincere hope that her unbeatable spirit will inspire a new contingent of fans and enthusiasts to join their campaign against this tragically common condition.”

Additionally, Valiant and Keep A Breast’s joint mission to promote breast health and cancer prevention across all facets of comics fandom and culture will continue with special fundraising endeavors throughout New York Comic Con 2016. From Thursday, October 6th through Sunday, October 9th, Valiant’s Faith will appear on two limited-edition collectibles, specially produced to benefit Keep A Breast and available exclusively at the publisher’s NYCC booth #1635:

  • FAITH #3 KEEP A BREAST #CHECKYOURSELFIE VARIANT ($10)

FAITH_003_VARIANT_KEEP-A-BREAST

Faith, X-O Manowar, Livewire, Ninjak, and many more of the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes unite to promote Keep A Breast’s #CHECKYOURSELFIE social media campaign – a hugely successful promotion embodied by placing three fingers to their breast, symbolizing an individual’s monthly commitment to selfcheck.

Find out more with the Keep A Breast Check Yourself! app – available as a free download on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The Keep A Breast Foundation Check Yourself! app helps you to establish your own routine and approach to the breast selfcheck.

Additionally, Keep A Breast Founder & CCO Shaney jo Darden will appear at the VALIANT: SPOTLIGHT ON FAITH panel presentation on Thursday, October 7th at 6:45 pm in Room 1A05 to further detail plans for the newly minted partnership, alongside Faith writer Jody Houser, comics legend Louise Simonson, multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts, and Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.

Future collaborations between Keep A Breast and Valiant will include specially designed Faith comics content promoting breast health and cancer prevention, an array of co-branded Faith/Keep A Breast merchandise, and, most notably, Valiant-sponsored Keep A Breast programming at more than 50 live events and comic book conventions nationwide – furthering Keep A Breast’s noted and longstanding mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support.

Over a decade ago, Keep A Breast’s founders, then involved in their own arts organization, rallied to support a friend with breast cancer. They developed an idea to express the female experience of breast cancer by reimagining the traditional canvas as a participatory sculpture. After some experimentation and partnerships with the right people, they developed and tested a technique for capturing the female bust in a plaster. The result was a white cast that was then customized by artists, such as Shepard Fairey, Mike Giant, Dalek and many more. The success of these breast casts as conversation starters, awareness builders and fundraising tools ultimately led them to what is now the non-profit The Keep A Breast Foundation.

Their mission is simple: equip young people with breast health education early on in their lives. They do that by talking to them face-to-face about breast cancer in their own voice and on their own turf. As the latest promotional affiliates dedicated to enabling Keep A Breast’s vital mission, Valiant joins a long list of individuals and organizations past and present that also includes 100% Pure, bareMinerals, Harveys, Pacifica, preen.me, Spy Optics, Stance, and the Vans Warped Tour, as well as musicians Blink 182, Devo, Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Iggy Pop, Sonic Youth, and dozens more.

“Keep A Breast is an incredible organization with a long and storied history of using music and the arts as a vehicle to educate and inform untapped and often underserved audiences about one of the true scourges of our age – breast cancer,” said Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions and Ad Sales Russell A. Brown. “Valiant is honored to assist in that mission as Keep A Breast now prepares to expand its efforts into the comics community, and Faith is the perfect ambassador to help them accomplish just that.”

Created by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter and Eisner Award-winning writer and artist David Lapham in Valiant’s acclaimed HARBINGER series in 1992, Faith has long been a central icon of Valiant’s award-winning publishing line. Then, in January 2016, Faith took her long-awaited, much-demanded first step toward solo stardom with FAITH #1 (of 4) – a groundbreaking debut that quickly became the first and biggest breakout hit of the New Year from any major comics publisher. In the months since, Faith’s first solo adventure has garnered near-universal critical acclaim; generated attention from a host of international media outlets, including The Atlantic, The A.V.

According to American Cancer Society:

  • Besides skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among American women. It accounts for nearly 1 in 3 cases of cancers.
  • Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths among American women.
  • Today, about 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • A woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes.
  • The chance that a breast cancer patient will be alive five years after diagnosis is lower in women under 40. Statistics indicate that tumors diagnosed in younger women may be more aggressive and less responsive to treatment, making early detection key.
  • 40% of breast cancer lumps are self-detected

About The Keep A Breast Foundation:

Keep A Breast has grown into the leading global youth-based breast cancer prevention organization, with global affiliates in Japan, Canada, France, UK and Chile.

Valiant Breaks the Internet with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY Covers – Clawing onto Shelves in December!

FAITH_006_CAT-COSPLAY-VARIANTFirst came fire… Then the wheel… Now, after centuries of struggle, the most acclaimed publisher in comic books today is proud to present the next great advancement in human civilization: the VALIANT CAT COSPLAY cover!

As revealed today at ComicBook.com, Valiant is bringing the three capital Cs of popular culture – cats, comics, and cosplay – together for the first time anywhere in December 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.

Featured by CNET, CrunchyRoll, the Daily Mail, Geek and Sundry, IGN, Kotaku, Mashable, NPR, Paste Magazine, Tech Times, and dozens more around the world, Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety is the gold standard of the “cat cosplay” genre and boasts a legion of fans and followers across Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook since its creation in early 2015. Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers mark their first officially sponsored collaboration with a comic book publisher or entertainment company.

“This might be the single best thing anyone anywhere has done, ever,” said Valiant Assistant Editor Lauren Hitzhusen. “All of Valiant’s numerous accomplishments – the biggest debut of a new publisher in more than a decade, the best reviews in the industry, a record-setting 50 nominations at this year’s Harvey Awards – pale in comparison to the glory that you now behold before you. But, all joking aside… No, really, this is the best.”

Available as “order-all” covers across all of Valiant’s December 2016 series, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY cover will be available for retailers to order in unlimited quantities at the standard suggested retail price:

  • A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #10
  • BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #3 (of 4)
  • BRITANNIA #4 (of 4)
  • DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4)
  • FAITH #6
  • GENERATION ZERO #5
  • HARBINGER RENEGADES #2
  • NINJAK #22
  • SAVAGE #2 (of 4)
  • WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #14

A portion of the proceeds from all VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers sold will benefit the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition (BARC), a New York-based non-profit that operates a beloved, no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. BARC’s mission is to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals – with quality food, shelter, medical attention, and the love they deserve – and to find permanent loving homes for them.

They’re intrepid! They’re fearless! They’re cats! This December, the animal kingdom is invading the Valiant Universe…and cat lovers and comics fans will finally stand united when VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers scratch their way onto shelves worldwide! Contact your local comic shop to pre-order your VALIANT CAT COSPLAY covers today! (Lint roller not included.)

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! For no extra cost, each issue of “LONG LIVE THE KING” will come bagged with one of 50 exclusive, 4-by-6 inch “micro-prints” featuring the one and only X-O Manowar as realized by a sensational cast of comics’ biggest talents – or full-blown, beautifully rendered original artwork randomly inserted in each issue! The X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY will continue all summer long across all issues of “LONG LIVE THE KING” – including the oversized, blockbuster issue #50 finale!

Valiant Promotes Hunter Gorinson to VP Marketing & Communications

VALIANT_GORINSON_001

Valiant Entertainment today named Hunter Gorinson to the position of Vice President of Marketing & Communications. A member of the management team that relaunched Valiant’s publishing operations to record-setting critical and commercial success, Gorinson joined the company as Marketing & Communications Manager in 2011 and was subsequently promoted to his previous position as Director of Marketing, Communications & Digital Media in 2013.

Gorinson’s new appointment reflects his integral strategic and managerial position within Valiant, where he has a played a key role across all facets of the company’s marketing and public relations in publishing, licensing, digital media, and film since its widely acclaimed return in 2012.

In the years since, Valiant’s publishing roster has continued to grow with repeatedly sold-out and celebrated new titles, including 4001 A.D., BLOODSHOT REBORN, BOOK OF DEATH, DIVINITY, NINJAK, THE VALIANT, and, most recently, FAITH – the latter of which generated worldwide media attention from outlets including The Atlantic, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, MTV, The New York Times, NPR, PBS Newshour, People, Today, Vox, The Washington Post, and many dozens more.

Most recently, Valiant has continued to innovate within the comics arena with a multitude of achievements. In 2014, Valiant became the first comics publisher to broadcast live from Twitter headquarters in San Francisco with the inaugural #ValiantSummit event – now a yearly reoccurring feature of the publisher’s marketing operations. Consistently rated year over year as the most acclaimed comic book publisher in the industry today, Valiant has received hundreds of awards, nominations, and critical accolades, culminating in 2016 with a record-setting 50 Harvey Awards nominations – the most ever received by a single publisher in the history of one of the comic book industry’s most prestigious awards.

“Valiant’s reputation for innovative marketing with tremendous reach within the world of comics and to the general public is in no small part due to Hunter’s leadership,” said Valiant CFO & Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo. “His increased responsibility and seniority at Valiant is well deserved.”

Originally founded in 1989, Valiant Entertainment is one of the most successful publishers in the history of the comic book medium with more than 80 million units sold and the third largest library of superhero characters in comics. In 2012, Valiant roared back to the fore with four new titles released under the banner of “The Summer of Valiant” – a relaunch that quickly established itself as the biggest debut of a new comic book publisher in more than a decade. Beginning with X-O MANOWAR #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord, which ranked as the year’s best-selling new series from any independent publisher, Valiant has consistently produced some of the highest selling and most critically accoladed comic titles anywhere in the industry. During the same period, the resurgent Valiant was also awarded a coveted Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year after just seven months of publishing, marking the fastest time that any new publisher had been named to one of comics’ highest honors.

After successfully revitalizing the largest independent superhero universe in comics, Valiant expanded its publishing roster with a successful slate of new titles, characters, and concepts, beginning with 2013′s UNITY #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite – an issue that was recognized as the biggest independent comics launch in more than five years. Also in 2013, Valiant released HARBINGER WARS #1 – the beginning of Valiant’s first inter-title crossover event, which in turn inspired a five-film plan for Valiant’s BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER franchises as feature films at Sony Pictures.

“Valiant has one of the most dedicated, formidable and experienced management teams anywhere in the entertainment industry. Hunter distinguished himself early on as a key member of that team, and his influence and ideas have been integral to the company’s many unprecedented successes over the past five years,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “As a co-architect of Valiant’s resurgence, there is no better voice to oversee this crucial division as the company prepares to enter a new and expansive period across publishing and all facets of entertainment.”

Gorinson’s experience prior to Valiant includes Marvel Entertainment and Showtime Networks, as well as several years as a reporter and columnist covering entertainment and local politics in Washington, DC. He holds a B.A. from New York University and an M.S. from The New School.
