Archer & Armstrong: Enemies of the State!

In the Soviet-controlled world of the Stalinverse, there is a place where liberty is sentenced to die…and it’s Gulag 396. A maximum-security prison where the only escape is through death, the gulag is the final stop for all enemies and detractors of the world’s oppressive authority. But when public enemy Obadiah Archer is admitted as the latest inmate, could his gospel of goodwill and optimism be the spark that ignites a new faith in the prison’s population…including the immortal undesirable known as Aram Addi-Padda?

RAPTURE #1 – NINJAK and SHADOWMAN Lead Valiant’s Next Standalone Event in May!

RAPTURE_001_COVER-A_SUAYANNew York Times Best-Selling Writer Matt Kindt and Blockbuster Artist CAFU Enter the Deadside for the Summer’s Most Staggering Comics Event

As revealed today at Nerdist, Valiant is proud to announce RAPTURE #1 (of 4) – a spellbinding standalone event from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar, Mind MGMT) and explosive artist CAFU (Rai)! In the epic tradition of THE VALIANT, the fallen hero once known as Shadowman returns to the forefront of the Valiant Universe to unite with the most unlikely ally of all – seasoned MI-6 intelligence operative Ninjak – for an epic quest into the unknown!

“RAPTURE is our  biggest and most harrowing exploration of the Shadowman mythology to date,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “The return of Jack Boniface is the just first step in a series of major developments that will be coming for Shadowman over the next year, and RAPTURE will officially begin his long-awaited return to the forefront of the Valiant Universe.”

“This series is ‘Lord of the Rings’ for the Valiant Universe, and Matt Kindt and CAFU have crafted a sprawling, Tolkien-esque journey that will see Ninjak, Shadowman, the Geomancer, and Punk Mambo fighting alongside a barbarian horde in one of their grandest battles yet,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “In the mold of previous standalone events like THE VALIANT, this series is a self-contained entry point that will will open an entirely new, unexplored corner of our universe and propel the twin destines of two of Valiant’s biggest characters forward for some time.”

On a scarred landscape, two otherworldly armies prepare to battle one last time, vying for control of a massive tower named from an ancient language no longer permitted to be spoken.

One army is led by a primeval force named Babel, whose goal is singular: to breach “Heaven” no matter the cost. The only thing standing in his way is a gray-haired barbaric warrior, filled with rage and regret – a man who sees this battle as his last chance for redemption. But he knows his depleted forces have little chance of victory unless aid comes soon.

Enter Tama: A 12-year old girl on the crest of a hill overlooking the battle, who has just become humanity’s only hope. The last in an ancient line of mystics who protect the Earth, she has foreseen this battle and knows millions will perish if she’s unable to stop it. Now Tama and her ragtag team of malcontents – Ninjak, Shadowman and Punk Mambo – must somehow defeat an elder god hell bent on piercing the heavens.

“I grew up loving ‘Conan’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’, but I haven’t really gotten a chance to develop my take on that kind of genre. I tend to gravitate to more grounded stories (relatively) with spies and gadgets and mystery,” writer Matt Kindt told Nerdist. “So it’s interesting to take that grounded sensibility and apply it to some crazy fantastical ideas – exploring heaven and hell, and gods and demons – but doing it in a way that humanizes all of the characters.”

On May 24th, steel meets shadow for Valiant’s first fantasy epic! Join the crusade as Ninjak and Shadowman unite for an astounding journey into the space between life and death…through the Deadside…and into the many worlds that lie beyond with a spellbinding and horrific standalone event, beginning in RAPTURE #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Harvey Award-nominated artist Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) Eisner Award-nominated artist J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), acclaimed artist Kano (Swamp Thing), and rising star CAFU (Action Comics)!

First Look: Russia’s Reign Endures in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #2 and DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – Coming in January!

DIVINITY-III_002_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICPlus: The Event-Level Epic’s Shocking Debut Returns with DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 SECOND PRINTING!

Valiant is proud to announce that DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s shocking, event-level blockbuster from the best-selling creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary), has sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves with the DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE SECOND PRINTING on FEBRUARY 1st!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

“It’s the ultimate “what-if” scenario,” series writer Matt Kindt told Entertainment Weekly. “And I think casting these heroes in the red light of a Soviet-controlled Earth doesn’t change the characters so much as it allows us to really see what makes the characters tick. What’s at their core? What is their purpose?”

Then, the event-level blockbuster of the season continues in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #2 (of 4) and DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1! This January, Russia rules the New Year as the Valiant Universe continues its transformation into a Soviet-ruled super-state…one where the world’s most powerful heroes now serve and protect the Motherland from all threats to the USSR’s global Iron Empire!

On January 18th, X-O Manowar becomes the guardian of the CCCP in ARIC: SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – the next essential standalone epic torn straight from the heart of the Stalinverse! Acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall) and powerhouse artist CAFU (Ninjak) present a star-shattering tale of sins, secrets, and tragedy for the worldwide hero of the communist state: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION!

From bustling urban centers to the collective farms of the countryside, men, women, and children alike all idolize the same hero of the global Soviet republic: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION! Returned to Earth from the stars with the ultimate nuclear deterrent – the indestructible X-O Manowar armor – the champion of socialism has singlehandedly consolidated the state’s military and political superiority at home and abroad. But when a surprise attack from the Deadside shines an untoward light on the modern-day Soviet Union’s darkest secret, will Aric pursue his mission…or uphold justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

Then, on January 25th, the Valiant Universe as we know it rages on in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #2 (of 4)! Bear witness to the Valiant Universe’s sadistic new status quo as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and superstar artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis) plunge Valiant’s new world order into a blood-red rebellion!

Welcome to the year 2017…where the Soviet Union has spent decades as the world’s reigning superpower and the Iron Curtain now encircles a planet riddled with war, strife, and oppression. Freedom is a thing of the past in the Stalinverse… So why can’t Russian intelligence officer Colin King shake the feeling that something has gone terribly wrong? He’ll put his freedom and life on the line to uncover the truth… Even if that means finding out whatever happened to the long-missing cosmonaut Abram Adams – the one man who just might hold the key to unraveling the dystopian world of today…

Jump on board now to find out for yourself why fans and critics are hailing DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 as the must-read comics event of 2016!

Rahal & Portela Lead the Stalinverse’s Greatest Criminals in DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1 – Coming in March!

DIV3-GULAG_001_COVER-A_GORHAMThis March, prepare to serve time with the Stalinverse’s newest enemies of the state: Archer & Armstrong!

As revealed at ComicsAlliance, Valiant is proud to announce DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1 – the next can’t-miss one-shot special torn from the pages of the winter’s visionary comics event! On March 15th, join rising star Eliot Rahal (The Paybacks, The Door Man) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (Faith) as they sentence religious zealot Obadiah Archer and the unkillable libertine called Armstrong to a fate worse than death: A lifetime sentence in Gulag 396, the deadliest prison known to man. But in letting these two subversive criminal offenders into its walls, has this oppressive Gulag condemned Archer and Armstrong…or itself?

In the Soviet-controlled world of the Stalinverse, there is a place where liberty is sentenced to die…and it’s Gulag 396. A maximum-security prison where the only escape is through death, the gulag is the final stop for all enemies and detractors of the world’s oppressive authority. But when public enemy Obadiah Archer is admitted as the latest inmate, could his gospel of goodwill and optimism be the spark that ignites a new faith in the prison’s population…including the immortal undesirable known as Aram Addi-Padda?

On March 15th, be there as Archer and Armstrong challenge Valiant’s violent new reality with a spirit-shaking, standalone tale that will rattle the very soul of the Stalinverse, only in DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1 – featuring covers by Adam Gorham (The Violent), Khari Evans (Ninjak), Andres Guinaldo (Nightwing), Ryan Lee (Inhuman) and Kano (Daredevil)!

But first… It all begins on December 21st as the Iron Curtain rises over a once-free world in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary)!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

Then: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with the first of four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) on December 28th as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1!

Next, on January 18th, join the cause of Soviet righteousness as Valiant’s leading legend – the unstoppable X-O Manowar – becomes the supreme fighting force of the CCCP in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 from acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall, The X-Files: Season 10) and Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)!

Plus, a new kind of hero will rise on February 8th when rising star Scott Bryan Wilson (Batman Annual) and blockbuster artist Robert Gill (Book of Death) summon the Deadside with Shadowman in DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN & THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1!

First Look: X-O Manowar Smashes the Stalinverse in DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – Coming in January!

DIV3-ARIC_001_COVER-A_CRAINThis January, in the wake of the Stalinverse’s stealth takeover of the world we once knew, Valiant’s leading legend is about to become the CCCP’s greatest weapon!

Valiant is proud to present your first look at DIVINITY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – the next essential special ripped from the pages of this winter’s visionary comics event! On January 18th, join acclaimed writer Joe Harris (Snowfall) and explosive artist CAFU (Rai) as they present the tragic new origin of the hero we once celebrated as X-O Manowar…and reveal his righteous place in the Stalinverse’s twisted new world order! In 2012, a man from the stars crash-landed into the Soviet-ruled territory of Romania. Wielding an extraterrestrial weapon of immense power, the Visigoth warrior known as Aric soon found himself conscripted by the military forces of the global Communist regime – a force that he now serves without question. With a past as mysterious as his power, Aric, Son of the Revolution now fights to protect the worldwide Soviet Union from threats foreign and domestic…and himself from the dark past that now threatens to undercut his very humanity itself!

From bustling urban centers to the collective farms of the countryside, men, women, and children alike all idolize the same hero of the global Soviet republic: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION! Returned to Earth from the stars with the ultimate nuclear deterrent – the indestructible X-O Manowar armor – the champion of socialism has singlehandedly consolidated the state’s military and political superiority at home and abroad. But when a surprise attack from the Deadside shines an untoward light on the modern-day Soviet Union’s darkest secret, will Aric pursue his mission…or uphold justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

On January 18th, X-O Manowar explodes out of the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE and into his own armor-annihilating adventure through Valiant’s brutal new status quo! A star-shattering tale of sins, secrets, and tragedy await the global hero of the worldwide Communist state as Joe Harris and CAFU seize the Stalinverse, only in DIVINTIY III: ARIC, SON OF THE REVOLUTION #1 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Diego Bernard (X-O Manowar), CAFU (Imperium), Trevor Hairsine (Divinity II), and Kano (Daredevil)!

But first… It all begins on December 21st as the Iron Curtain rises over a once-free world in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.), blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Harvey Award-nominated inker Ryan Winn (X-O Manowar) and master colorist David Baron (Bloodshot Reborn, Planetary)!

Cold world war!

Welcome to the year 2017…where the Soviet Union has spent decades as the world’s reigning superpower and the Iron Curtain now encircles a planet riddled with war, strife, and oppression. Freedom is a thing of the past in the Stalinverse… So why can’t Russian intelligence officer Colin King shake the feeling that something has gone terribly wrong? He’ll put his freedom and life on the line to uncover the truth… Even if that means finding out whatever happened to the long-missing cosmonaut Abram Adams – the one man who just might hold the key to unraveling the dystopian world of today…

This is no alternate reality… This is the Valiant Universe as we know it and, soon, New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY II) will lead Valiant’s event-level epic to the architect behind this new world order!

Liberty and judgment for all!

A weaponized virus has turned New York into a war zone…and Bloodshot is about to make his last stand for the heart and soul of every man and woman brutalized by the effects of a nanite-enhanced plague! But just when his one-man invasion of the Big Apple seems lost, the hard-coded weapon of mass destruction called Deathmate will re-appear to save the day – and secure Project Rising Spirit’s spot as the saviors of New York! Will her programming win out…or will the woman inside the machine seek the vengeance for which she has long yearned?

Freaky fracas!

Obadiah Archer: Skilled marksmen, trained fighter, and…deranged circus freak?! Through the unfathomable forces of nature, Archer and Gub Gub – the pint-sized and deranged clone of Armstrong – have swapped minds! When Gub Gub’s body is kidnapped by nefarious forces, Armstrong and his long-lost wife, Andromeda, must race to save their friend and undo the horrendous merger of minds before the damage becomes permanent!

“ANDROMEDA ESTRANGED” goes mental as rising star Rafer Roberts (HARBINGER RENEGADES) and Eisner Award-winning artist Mike Norton (Revival) drag Valiant’s leading adventure duo through Hell – and also Florida – for the very soul of Archer (and, sure, maybe Gub Gub too)!

GENERATION ZERO VOL. 1: WE ARE THE FUTURE TPB
Written by FRED VAN LENTE
Art by FRANCIS PORTELA with DEREK CHARM
Cover by STEPHEN MOONEY

Ready…Set…Riot!

Years ago, the children of the experimental strike team known as GenerationZero were taken from their families by Project Rising Spirit, a private weapons contractor, and raised to be psychic soldiers. After years of taking orders, they have fought for and won their freedom.

Now, the world’s most wanted teenagers have pledged to protect each other tooth and claw, while using their extraordinary abilities to right wrongs for a generation without a future… To fight for kids, just like them.

One of those kids is Keisha Sherman, whose boyfriend just turned up dead after a suspicious car crash in Rook, Michigan – a newly booming tech town that sprang from rags to superriches seemingly overnight. When Keisha makes a desperate plea into her webcam, the local high school suddenly finds itself with several unusual new students… But as word of Generation Zero’s presence spreads rapidly through the halls, this volatile band of teenage upstarts is about to discover that they’re far from the most extraordinary thing lurking behind Rook’s stainless-steel facade…

New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, Amazing Spider-Man) and blockbuster artist Francis Portela (FAITH) launch four highly specialized superhuman soldiers into their most dangerous mission yet: high school!
