New York, NY (January 9, 2019) – As first revealed on The Beat, Valiant Entertainment is thrilled to announce that editor extraordinaire Heather Antos has joined the company’s Editorial department!
Antos’ first assignment at Valiant HQ will be working with writer Vita Ayala on the recently launched LIVEWIRE series. Antos will also develop a stable of her own titles and engage with her extensive list of creator contacts. She’ll also appear with the Valiant team at conventions and live events. With a history of being an incredible story editor and having a keen eye for developing talent, Antos is a phenomenal addition to Valiant Editorial.
“I’m thrilled to announce the hiring of Heather Antos,” said Senior Editorial Director Robert Meyers. “Heather has a sterling reputation, from the launching of the Star Wars line at Marvel, to her recent work at Image on Injection and Bitter Root; she is the kind of voice we want at Valiant. With Heather joining us, we have a fully staffed Editorial department – each member brings unique story viewpoints that will broaden and deepen the Valiant line. I look forward to reading the stories Heather develops within the Valiant Universe.”
“There is no better time than right now to join Valiant,” remarked Antos. “The creative teams, characters, and stories have never looked stronger and I’m excited to collaborate with Editorial on even greater stories as we build toward the release of BLOODSHOT in theaters February 2020. From X-O Manowar to Livewire, Quantum and Woody to Faith, there is a Valiant character for everyone, and I’m excited to bring these characters to new readers.”
