Jump on board here with three all-new introductions to the acclaimed publishing line that is sweeping the 2016 Harvey Awards with a record-setting 50 nominations and find out for yourself why Valiant is the best-reviewed publisher anywhere in the industry today!
First: Love is in the air when Faith flies into the pages of Valiant’s smash-hit ongoing series for a first date that is going to sweep Archer off his feet in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5 SECOND PRINTING! Harvey Award-nominated writer Rafer Roberts (HARBINGER RENEGADES) and Eisner Award-winning artist Mike Norton (Revival) present a landmark Valiant tale for the ages as Obadiah Archer and Faith “Zephyr” Herbert’s budding romance erupts into a romantic thrill ride that is going to change both of their lives forever! More crossbows than Sleepless in Seattle! More fistfights than The Notebook! This ain’t no ordinary team-up… It’s Archer and Faith’s first date!
Then: New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Old Man Logan, Moon Knight) and blockbuster artist Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN) drop Valiant’s nanite-enhanced commando into a scorching trial by fire in the BLOODSHOT REBORN #14 SECOND PRINTING – re-presenting the explosive FIRST ISSUE of “BLOODSHOT ISLAND“! Live. Die. Rejuvenate. Each day, Bloodshot and his predecessors awake to find themselves hunted by the unstoppable engine of destruction called Deathmate. And each day, they die…only to begin their escape once more after the nano-technology inside them repairs their fatal injuries. As Bloodshot and his new teammates begin to understand the brutal logic behind their seaside prison, will the biggest threat to their survival be the horrors that await in the jungle around them…or each other?
Finally: The countdown to the greatest Valiant milestone of all time begins in the X-O MANOWAR #47 SECOND PRINTING – the FIRST ISSUE of “LONG LIVE THE KING”! Witness history in the making as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps.) and acclaimed artists Joe Bennett (52) and Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil) begin the march toward X-O MANOWAR #50 with a cataclysmic turning point that will bring our world to its knees! An unthinkable new foe has arrived on Earth… They are The Torment – and their name means death. Thought to be a legend by the Vine, they have now become Earth’s violent reality. As old as the universe itself, they have traveled for eons to reach us…in search of Aric of Dacia and the unstoppable X-O Manowar armor. Can Aric challenge a seemingly omnipotent threat with motives beyond the comprehension of mortal men? Will the armor truly be our world’s salvation, just as the Vine’s myths foretold? And is this the beginning of the end for X-O Manowar – or the beginning of something even bigger?
