THE VALIANT #1 Debuts to Instant Sell-Out, Returns with Second Printing in January!
Plus: Your First Look Inside THE VALIANT #2

Valiant is proud to announce that THE VALIANT #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the VALIANT NEXT limited series epic by New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) & Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) – has sold out at the distributor level and will return with a second printing on January 21st, alongside the series’ second stunning installment in THE VALIANT #2 (of 4)!

THE VALIANT is one of the most ambitious stories we’ve attempted to date, and comics fans have rightly taken notice,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Jeff, Matt, and Paolo have created an epic, yet intimate story that is going to build a tremendous amount of momentum for some of our biggest heroes. And stand back…they’re just getting started. THE VALIANT is hands down one of the best series you’ll find anywhere this year from any publisher.”

As the first issue released in the new VALIANT PRESTIGE format, THE VALIANT #1 SECOND PRINTING features an oversized 25-page first chapter, deluxe matte-laminate card stock covers, custom-designed end sheets, exclusive back matter curated by Paolo Rivera, and much more – all complete with no advertisements and a standard $3.99 cover price!

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT #1 (of 4) is the beginning of a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today. On January 21st, find out why fans and critics are heralding THE VALIANT as the ultimate jumping-on point for readers new to Valiant’s award-winning publishing line:

“Valiant doesn’t slow down; instead, it picks up the pace and puts something of this caliber in front of you, with a smirk. This is the kind of stuff you need to be reading.” All-Comic.com

“The Valiant Comics universe might be experiencing its Big Bang moment.”The Washington Post

Also arriving on January 21st – the year’s most astonishing new adventure ratchets up the stakes as Bloodshot is drafted into the eons-old war against mankind’s oldest, darkest enemy in THE VALIANT #2 (of 4)!

The Immortal Enemy has crawled out from the black depths of history to destroy this generation’s Geomancer and send Earth back to the Dark Ages! Now…the Eternal Warrior, Ninjak, and Kay McHenry must overcome their worst nightmares before the unlikeliest of white knights rides in to save the day. Will he be enough to battle back the unyielding evil that threatens to plunge the Valiant Universe into the darkness?

The battle ten millennia in the making continues on January 21st in THE VALIANT #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING and THE VALIANT #2 (of 4) – reserve your copies today!
