The Vans Warped Tour® presented by Journeys® and Valiant Entertainment Team Up for 2017 Artwork and Branding

WARPED2017_ADMAT_001 3Valiant Comic Book Heroes to Stand Center Stage All Summer Long for 40+ Tour Dates of the Influential Touring Festival

Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY, February 17, 2017The Vans Warped Tour® presented by Journeys® and Valiant Entertainment today announced a new partnership to bring Valiant’s award-winning library of comic book superheroes on the road with America’s longest-running touring music festival for an immersive collaboration spanning the summer 2017 season.

As revealed today at Entertainment Weekly, multiple fan-favorite characters from Valiant’s 2,000-plus-strong library will make Warped Tour history as the centerpieces of the 2017 tour’s “comic book” theme. All summer long, Valiant’s most iconic heroes – including X-O Manowar, Faith, Bloodshot, Livewire, Ninjak, and more – will adorn posters, promotional pieces, merchandise, and more at over 40 tour dates across the United States. The 2017 Vans Warped Tour® artwork was designed by acclaimed Valiant comic book artist Kano.

Additionally, Valiant will exhibit at select Vans Warped Tour® dates across the summer with a mobile comic book art installation and appearances by major comics creators – the first time that a major comics publisher has joined the touring roster of America’s longest-standing and most renowned touring music festival in more than a decade.

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.

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 comics and graphic novels sold and the third largest library of superhero characters in all of entertainment. In 2012, Valiant roared back to the fore with a relaunch that quickly established itself as the biggest debut of a new comic book publisher in more than a decade. The resurgent Valiant was also awarded a coveted Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year after just seven months – marking the fastest time that any new company had been named to one of comics’ highest honors – and has been repeatedly cited as one of the most talked-about and trendsetting forces in comics by preeminent media outlets including The Atlantic, Buzzfeed, The Guardian, The New York Times, People, The Washington Post, and dozens more worldwide. 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 Award nominations – the most ever received by a single publisher in the history of one of the comic book industry’s most prestigious awards. Valiant has announced a multipicture deal to bring Bloodshot and Harbinger to the big screen as feature film franchises, the first of which is slated for release in 2018 from Sony Pictures.

Real! Live! Cats! Seattle’s Comics Dungeon to Host Signing with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY Stars Fawkes & Nak in December!

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! From 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm PT, meet the stars behind the purr-aculous covers gracing each of Valiant’s releases throughout December, pose for photos, and get your VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS paw-printed for all eternity by the legends themselves!

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

“The greatest variant covers of all time…” – Gizmodo/io9

“Possibly the best comics news ever…” – Vulture

“THIS. THIS IS EVERYTHING… There will only be the time BEFORE the Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers and the time AFTER the Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers. It’s a new, modern world of comics. What a time to be alive.” – The Beat

“Exactly as amazing as it sounds.” – ComicsAlliance

“If there’s one thing the internet has taught us, it’s that cats make everything better.” – Comic Book Resources

“Kudos for finding the perfect cats to cosplay as different Valiant heroes… One of them even has a little cat gun, for his cat murders.” – Inverse

“Surprisingly enough, Cat-Armstrong is not drunk.” – GameSpot

“Cat cosplay covers that also go to a good cause? That makes this fun kitty collaboration even better.” – The Mary Sue

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.

Designed by the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog – the gold standard of the “cat cosplay” genre that also boasts a legion of fans and followers across Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook – Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS mark their first officially sponsored collaboration between CCFV and a comic book publisher or entertainment company.

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
