TweetValiant have released a teaser today, which teases (as teasers are wont to do) something coming up in July..
TweetThe most recent book to return from Valiant, Shadowman started a second arc this week, with issue #5 from Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher. The series has made an effective return, with some good character work and world-building – although the book is struggling to lift all the different storylines it has weighing it down. […]
TweetValiant are pushing to the next stage of superhero this year, taking their five comics (all of which seem to have been very well reviewed so far, beating statistical probability to a pulp) and experimenting with crossovers and events. The first title they relaunched in 2012, X-O Manowar, is entering an event storyline called Planet […]
TweetIt’s getting tougher all the time, as Paul McCartney would’ve likely sung if the Beatles had reunited for a jaded comeback tour in the 1990s. All you want in life is for Stephanie Brown to get just one bit of respect, but time and time again your dreams are shatteringly recoloured at the last moment. And […]
TweetAt the Future of Valiant panel, Valiant is continuing to build out their universe. This isn’t incredibly different from how the original Valiant universe sprung up. Perhaps, this is at a slightly slower pace. If you’ve been reading the Valiant titles in the last couple months, you’ll have noticed the world building leaking over between […]
TweetAt the Diamond Retailer appreciation breakfast this morning, after being forced to surrender phones and become sequestered behind a blast shield door, attendees were treated to some new footage from IRON MAN 3 which included the scene of Tony Stark getting his suit on to the strains of the Run DMC classic “Christmas in Hollis” […]
TweetBy Todd Allen The comment section has been clamoring for new about what the revived Valiant is planning on doing with Quantum and Woody. If you haven’t experienced Q&W, it was a comic that ran at the second incarnation of Valiant from ’97-’00 with a a one year gap in the middle. It was a buddy […]
TweetBy Todd Allen Valiant’s roll out continues. If you’re familiar with the original, you caught an Eternal Warrior reference in the first issues of Archer and Armstrong. Sure enough, on Saturday’s Valiant panel at the Baltimore Comic-Con (2PM), there’s going to be an announcement about “Wrath of the Eternal Warrior.” Also some surprise guests. Given that […]
Something that may have gotten lost in the shuffle of Comicon was the release of Bloodshot #1, the third title from Valiant’s relaunch. Valiant went raiding Marvel again for the creative team: Duane Swierczynski (Iron Fist, Cable, and more recently Birds of Prey) is the writer, Manuel Garcia (probably best known for runs on Raven and Checkmate) is penciling with Arturo Lozzi, Stefano Gaudiano (all sorts of Marvel titles… plus X-O Manowar) is inking.
I’ve been handed a preview for Harbinger #3 by Joshua Dysart, Khari Evans and Lewis LaRosa, due out on August 15th. In this chapter, our hero finally lands at the Harbinger Foundation. As I’ve said before, and probably will be saying for the foreseeable future, this is a comic that does not flinch at embracing the dark side of super powers. It looks like the slow build towards a particularly twisted conflict of moral agendas is picking up a little momentum.
TweetBy Todd Allen That teaser from Tuesday was indeed Shadowman. Looks like Valiant is doing a launch, not a spin-off as November will see Shadowman #1. Writing is by Justin Jordan. Art is by Patrick Zircher. This is the second recent announcement for Jordan. He’s probably best known for The Strange Talent of Luther Strode […]
