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:
Tweet Leave it to Valiant to come up up with the most innovative comics book marketing tie-ins. This time they’ve come up with a special drink to celebrate their main man, X-0 Manorwar—the X-O Manowar Green Tea Blast, which will be available at Oren’s Daily Roast outlets around New York. When you buy the drink […]
Quantum & Woody and Archer & Armstrong! Its a Valiant COmics team-up and its coming this August, with The Delinquents, a four issue mini series by James Asmus (Quantum and Woody) and Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) and artist Kano (Quantum and Woody, Immortal Iron Fist). Of couse there will be variant covers, one by Paolo Rivera and a #ValiantCraft shelf cover by Valiant 8-Bit artist Donovan Santiago.
TweetValiant have absolutely blitzed it today, announcing a new initiative which will see a new series launch every month right through until September. Amongst the announcements are a Quantum & Woody/Archer & Armstrong crossover, and new books by Jen Van Meter, Matt Kindt, Doug Braithwaite, Joe Harris, Roberto De La Torre and Clayton Crain.
TweetValiant have been trying a lot of new tricks this last year, with crossovers now a tried and true part of their comics universe. And now it’s been announced that 2014 will see another crossover kick off, as Bloodshot and The H.A.R.D. Corps will enter the world of Archer and Armstrong for a four-issue storyline.
TweetValiant have announced that 2014 will see a number of zero issues published, each detailing the origin of certain characters within their shared universe. And although most are just what you’d expect – Archer #0, H.A.R.D. Corps #0 – one of them will be Goat #0 by James Asmus and Tom Fowler. Oh dear.

TweetIt looks like the week prior to ‘NYCC’ has become the new ‘NYCC’, as Valiant have just sent out a teaser image suggesting that they’re going to be doing something with the original Quantum & Woody team. Are they referring to the characters, or to the creative team of Christopher Priest and Mark Bright, with […]
TweetValiant’s editors were talking about something strange on Twitter yesterday. Boom’s editors were doing the same today. They kept going on about cars and something called #NYCCKOTR, which nobody would explain when I asked about it. Well! Today this weird list of letters has been revealed to be New York Comic Con: King of the […]
Tweet Valiant has just announced it’s teaming with Mexican publisher Kamite to distribute a new line of Spanish-language versions of the Valiant line. Foreign publishing deals are a smart way to cut your creative costs down and develop new audiences. The Mexican comics industry is probably most familiar to American audiences via the lurid “photonovelas” […]
