ADVANCE REVIEW: X-O Manowar #1 – A Soldier Reluctantly Reenlists

When the most recent and critically acclaimed run of “X-O Manowar” concluded last year (created by writer Robert Venditti over a remarkable 50 issue run), the closing pages of its finale served as a prologue for a new direction for series protagonist Aric. It showed the time-tossed Visigoth solider sitting atop a throne on an alien world, grizzled and scarred and surrounded by corpses and blood. Now, a new volume of Aric’s adventures by writer…

REVIEW: Bloodshot U.S.A. #2 – Kicking It Up A Notch

REVIEW: Bloodshot U.S.A. #2 – Kicking It Up A Notch

I’ll admit it, I really don’t know much of anything about Bloodshot or his backstory. And part of what makes Bloodshot U.S.A. #2 work so well is that I was able to get all the fun out of the issue and follow every plot point with only the issue’s recap page to work from. When you can anchor and effectively set up an entire line-wide crossover with just a recap page, and still have the story…

Valiant Promotes Josh Johns to Director of Digital Media & Development

Valiant Promotes Josh Johns to Director of Digital Media & Development

Valiant Comics has, since its relaunch in 2012, quickly become one the best-managed brands in comics. With a keen eye towards tight publishing schedules, print runs which almost inevitably sell out, and a library of intellectual property mined from its previous iteration, the independent publisher has carved out a solid niche for itself in an incredibly crowded comic book market. One of the key figures in making Valiant work since it was resurrected is Josh…

Valiant Sends Sold-Out BRITANNIA #2 Back to Press

Peter Milligan and Juan Jose Ryp have certainly delivered a hit for Valiant with Britannia. After an incredibly solid debut issue which sold nearly 20,000 copies of the first printing and led to subsequent reprints, the second issue of Britannia is now headed back for re-issue itself. Most new series from independent publishers see drop-offs in their second issue, so the exact numbers for the first printing of the second issue will likely reflect that…

PREVIEWS: First Look at BLOODSHOT USA #1 From Valiant

Bloodshot is probably Valiant Comics’ second-most recognizable brand after X-O Manowar. The main series has consistently been among Valiant’s top-sellers, and has served as a launching point for some of the company’s better line-wide stories since its 2012 relaunch. Now Valiant is pushing forth with a new Bloodshot mini-series from writer Jeff Lemire and artist Doug Braithwaite. The project, entitled Bloodshot U.S.A., runs with a popular theme in the current pop-cultural zeitgeist, specifically that of…
