Nice Art: The Valiant #2 by Kindt, Lemire, Rivera and Francavilla

THE-VALIANT_002_VARIANT_LEMIRE&KINDT

The Valiant is the lynchpin of Valiant Next, a new hopping on point for readers from Valiant. A prestige format limited series with art by Paolo Rivera, and a variant cover by Francesco Francavilla, there’s no chance we’re not going to run a preview any time it gets into our inbox. The story by Matt Kindt and Jeff Lemire doesn’t hurt either.

Jen Van Meter explores the First “New” Valiant Leading Lady in the Death-Defying Dr. Mirage

DRMIRAGE_001_COVER_SECOND-PRINTING

By Alexander Jones The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage Issue #1 marked an important change in the history of Valiant Comics. The publisher finally opened up their stable of characters and swapped the gender of Dr. Mirage, turning the character into a widowed super heroine searching for her late husband in the afterlife. The first installment featured […]

Quinones, Knisley and Level cover Harbinger: Faith #0 variant

HAR_FAITH_ZERO_COVER-A_QUINONES

In a world where complains about overly idealized heroines are common, Faith, a member of Valiant’s Harbinger teen superhero group is a nice break: a normal young woman who is learning to deal with her powers just like every other superbeing. And now she’s getting her own one shot by Joshua Dysart and Robert Gill, with variant covers by Joe Quinones, Lucy Knisley and Brian Level. Valiant continues to branch out with their superhero line — because it’s a more diverse world and comics market out there.

Nice art: The Valiant #1 by Lemire, Kindt and Rivera

THE-VALIANT_001_COVER_RIVERA

The dynamic duo of Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt seems to have set up shop for some of their non-creator owned work at Valiant Comics, and new they’re joined by Paolo Rivera for The Valiant, a new four issue prestige mini-series. An they’ve got Franceso Francavilla doing variant covers as well—along with Kindt and Lemire—so it’s a nice art-a-palooza. It’s nice to see Valiant stepping out with new titles, and especially great to see Rivera back on interior art—he’s best known for his impressive MArvel covers but since stepping back from that we haven’t seen nearly enough of his stylish art around.

Valiant brings entire library to iVerse

AH_001_CHROMIUM_MOLINA.jpg

It begins. We’ve been hearing a ton o’ rumors about comics companies jumping aboard iVerse—probably the second largest dedicated digital comics platform—in the wake of Amazon’s acquisition of Comixology. While Amazon is great at selling books, publishers want to avoid a Hachette-like stand off and other weight throwing maneuvers that Amazon is known for. While it’s […]

Warren Simons Named Valiant Editor-in-Chief

VALIANT_simons_headshot.jpg

Word on the street is that Valiant has a lot of new stuff coming down the pike, and perhaps to run the paving machine for both the street and the pike, they’ve promoted Warren Simons to Editor-in-Chief. His previous title was Executive Editor. Since the company’s relaunch in 2011, Wimons has been in charge of book including X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Unity, Rai, and more. In his new role as Editor-in-Chief, Simons will continue to preside over all day-to-day operations of Valiant’s editorial department, and manage Valiant’s growing editorial team, which was just boosted by the addition of former DC assistant editor Kyle Andrukiewicz. CBR has the promotion interview that has a nice snapshot of Valiant’s progress so far:
