CGC and Valiant Unveil “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” Custom Label – Debuting at Baltimore Comic-Con 2016

VALIANT-CGC-CUSTOM-LABEL_FRONT-COVERThe Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) and Valiant Entertainment have teamed up to create Valiant’s first-ever custom art CGC label, spotlighting the slate of characters behind the award-winning publisher’s upcoming “FUTURE OF VALIANT” wave of new series and prestige-format projects. Featuring artwork by Valiant-exclusive artist Diego Bernard (X-O MANOWAR, NINJAK) and strictly limited to just 500 pieces, this limited-edition certification label will make its debut on site at Baltimore Comic-Con on September 2nd and will be made available for encapsulation as an add-on feature when grading any Valiant title past or present during Baltimore Comic-Con.

Customers will be able to purchase “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” custom label in CGC’s Blue Universal Designation for an additional $5 fee at CGC’s Baltimore Comic-Con booth (#901) or online while supplies last.

Featuring long-time Valiant icons, including Faith, the Harbinger Renegades, and Bloodshot alongside the publisher’s next ascendant superhero stars, like Generation Zero, Savage, and Divinity, Valiant’s first-ever CGC label is the latest celebration of the upcoming “FUTURE OF VALIANT” publishing slate, which was first announced with an exclusive live broadcast from New York’s renowned Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in May.

Spanning seven series in total, “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” is 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 – 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 in July
  • GENERATION ZERO #1 by Fred Van Lente & Francis Portela in August

  • SAVAGE #1 (of 4) by B. Clay Moore, Clayton Henry & Lewis LaRosa in November
  • DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) by Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine in December

THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” custom label marks the second collaboration between Valiant Entertainment and CGC, following on from the success of the VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT SERIES – a first-of-its-kind line of shelf covers spotlighting the heroes of the Valiant Universe in printed reproductions of CGC’s trademark grading cases with artwork by acclaimed artists Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS) and Pere Perez (FAITH).

Plus, only at Baltimore Comic-Con: Visit Valiant at booth #2008 to join the celebration of the 1,000,000th copy of X-O MANOWAR sold since the series’ 2012 debut with the X-O MANOWAR 1,000,000th COPY COMMEMORATIVE SEAL!

“Valiant is privileged to enjoy a storied history with many millions of comics sold, legions of fans around the globe, and tremendous successes spanning nearly three decades. We’re excited and proud to be adding to that legacy with today’s milestone. This achievement, in particular, is noteworthy because it affirms the success that comes with a commitment to storytelling,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.

“Since the first issue hit stands in 2012, we had always envisioned X-O MANOWAR as an epic, long-term, 50-issue story for our signature hero. Today, as we stand on the cusp of that achievement, we are able to reflect on a title that has not only been one of the best-selling and best-reviewed books in comics every month since its launch, but one that is also about to print its 1,000,000th copy. That is simply incredible, and we owe a huge congratulations to Robert Venditti and all the artists and creators who have contributed along the way. Their work on X-O MANOWAR stands as a massive feat of long-form narrative and creative vision that is virtually unrivaled by any other series in recent memory.”

As the launch series of “THE SUMMER OF VALIANT” initiative that defined the Valiant Universe for a new generation, X-O MANOWAR #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern) and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (Conan) debuted as the most successful independent series of 2012 and went onto to produce four sold-out printings of its first issue, as well as a myriad of year-end awards, nominations and “best of” citations from the industry’s most prestigious outlets. As the impetus for best-selling storylines like “ENTER: NINJAK” and “PLANET DEATH” and major crossover events UNITY and ARMOR HUNTERS, X-O MANOWAR continued to anchor the backbone of Valiant’s award-winning publishing line over the course of writer Robert Vendittis unprecedented 56-issue run and set the tone and scale for the rest of Valiant’s acclaimed series that would follow in its wake.

Now, Robert Venditti’s epic tenure is set to conclude with the 64-page X-O MANOWAR #50 series finale on September 28th and, with time, the title that forged the Valiant Universe anew has distinguished itself as one of the longest running and most renowned superhero series of the modern era.

XO_050_COVER-A_ALL-STAR-JAM

 

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?

Join the history-making celebration live as it happens today on all of Valiant’s official social media accounts (Twitter | Facebook | Instagram) as Valiant’s staff travels from New York, NY to Richmond, VA to pick the 1,000,000th copy right off of the publishing line alongside special guest Robert Venditti and representatives from CGC and Geppi’s Entertainment Museum. Use the hashtag #XOONEMILLION to follow the 1,000,00th copy of Robert Venditti’s X-O MANOWAR sold on its journey from the printing press and into the annals of comic book history!

Finally, X-O Manowar’s march into the history books continues on September 28th in X-O MANOWAR #50 – the final issue of “LONG LIVE THE KING” and a blockbuster tribute to the series that set the Valiant Universe in motion from longtime scribe Robert Venditti and extraordinary artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)! Plus: Don’t miss special guest appearances by Cary Nord, Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS), Diego Bernard (NINJAK), Rafa Sandoval (Green Lantern), and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), Jody Houser (FAITH) & Javier Pulido (Amazing Spider-Man), Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) & Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER), Philip Tan (Suicide Squad), and more along the way!

Also running through each issue of “LONG LIVE THE KING,” Valiant is marking the road toward X-O Manowar’s landmark issue #50 finale with the X-O MANOWAR #50 COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY, running through each issue of “LONG LIVE THE KING“! For no extra cost, each issue of “LONG LIVE THE KING” comes 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!

Hillary Clinton Joins Valiant’s High-Flying Heroine for FAITH #5 – A History-Making Election Milestone Coming in November!

Faith Issue 5_Hillary Special_mock-up_v4.inddComics Legend Louise Simonson Officiates a Historic Election Special Featuring the Breakout Comic Book Hero of 2016 Alongside the First Female Democratic Presidential Nominee

In advance of San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Valiant is proud to announce that Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee for President of the United States, will join forces with Faith “Zephyr” Herbert on November 2nd in FAITH #5 – a history-making, 48-page election special teaming the leading female hero in comics today with the first female nominee from a major political party for a special tale written by comics legend Louise Simonson with art by FAITH‘s own Pere Perez!

On November 2nd, just days before Election Day 2016, legendary writer Louise Simonson and Harvey Award-nominated artist Pere Perez present history in the making with a presidential milestone like no other! Faith Herbert, star of the highest selling independent superhero debut of 2016, is a shining beacon of optimism in a challenging world. Her day job as a blogger and journalist is about to bring Faith face to face with Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton…but it’s her daring alter ego as Los Angeles’ leading superhero that will have to save the day when a new threat emerges to imperil a pivotal moment that has all of America watching!

“[Faith] is so positive and she’s very much what I think a hero should be,” writer Louise Simonson told The Washington Post. “I wrote Superman for a while and — she’s almost in her soul, she is like the female Superman. [Writer Jody Houser]’s work is wonderful on this book, but I was glad they would let me play just a little bit in this particular sandbox.”

“There is no other character in comics quite like Faith, and it’s no surprise that she has captured imaginations worldwide to become the leading superhero of 2016,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Valiant’s mission has always been to reflect the reality around us through the lens of comic book storytelling. Faith is the perfect embodiment of a comic book character that dares to defy the traditional norms of who or what a hero can be. That’s a message that can resonate with anyone, anywhere, at any time and has taken on even greater significance as America prepares for a historic election this November.”

Plus, also coming in the oversized, 48-page FAITH #5 election special: Faith’s adventures continue with an all-new lead story by the ongoing creative team of writer Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and new series artists Meghan Hetrick (Red Thorn) and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells), as well as an exclusive prelude to HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 – featuring the long-awaited return of Faith’s beloved superteam – by writer Rafer Roberts (A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and Eisner Award-winning artist Colleen Doran (The Sandman)!

With covers by Eisner Award-winning superstar Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT, Daredevil), Harvey Award nominee Clayton Henry (SAVAGE), new ongoing FAITH interior artist Meghan Hetrick (Uncanny Avengers), and more, join an all-star cast of Valiant’s greatest talents on November 2nd in FAITH #5 as the leading heroine in comics today joins forces with Hillary Clinton for a landmark comics event!

Created by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter (Secret Wars) and Eisner Award-winning writer and artist David Lapham (Stray Bullets) 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. Club, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, The Independent, MTV, The New York Times, NPR, PBS Newshour, People, Seventeen, Today, Vox, The Washington Post, and dozens more; and become the first series of 2016 to reach a much-vaunted fifth printing – making it one of only a handful of hit series in the past decade to achieve that pivotal benchmark of fan and commercial demand.

Faith’s unprecedented streak of history-making achievements continues this Wednesday, July 20th with the release of her first ongoing series in the all-new FAITH #1 – a first issue that has already rocketed onward to become the highest selling superhero debut of the year from any independent publisher in the industry today.

An award-winning writer and editor with more than 40 years of experience, Louise Simonson is one of the most respected and tenured female creators in comics history. With lengthy and acclaimed runs on some of comics’ most influential series, including New Mutants, Superman: The Man of Steel, and X-Factor, Simonson has co-created a host of enduring characters, including Apocalypse, Cable, and Power Pack for Marvel Entertainment and Doomsday and Steel for DC Entertainment. FAITH #5 will be her first work for Valiant Entertainment.

First Look: BRITANNIA #1 – The World’s First Detective Challenges Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp in September!

BRITANNIA_001_COVER-A_NORDOn the fringes of civilization, the world’s first detective is about to make an unholy discovery…

Valiant is proud to present your first fully lettered look inside BRITANNIA #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new, prestige-format limited series from comics master Peter Milligan (X-Statix, Detective Comics) and incendiary artist Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK)! On September 21st, “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” continues here as Antonius Axia, the ancient world’s first detective, takes a psychological journey into terror, temptation, and bloodshed that could destroy not only his humanity, but the very empire he has sworn to uphold…

Ruled by the Fates. Manipulated by the Gods. Commanded by Caesar. In the year 65 A.D., one’s destiny was not his own. At the height of Nero’s reign, a veteran of Rome’s imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings… In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia – the First Detective – will become Rome’s only hope to reassert control over the empire’s most barbaric frontier…and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay…

“I see this story as kind of Gladiator meets Druid-era Alien, and that sets the tone. Any story that has Nero and all his excesses, alongside the brutality of Roman Imperial oppression and mashes this with dark magic and horror must have a degree of darkness to it,” writer Peter Milligan told ComicBook.com. “But there’s a lot of humanity in there too… I think this mix of the real and the fabulous, the dark and the amusing, makes it unlike most stories set in the ancient world.”

On September 21st, Peter Milligan and Juan Jose Ryp push “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” beyond Rome’s farthest borders and into uncharted territory for BRITANNIA #1 – featuring covers by masterful artists Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark), Ryan Lee (Inhuman), and Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son)!

Then, “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 in September
  • BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1 (of 4) by Jeff Lemire & Doug Braithwaite in October
  • HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 by Rafer Roberts & Darick Roberston in November
  • SAVAGE #1 (of 4) by B. Clay Moore, Clayton Henry & Lewis LaRosa in November
  • DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) by Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine in December
