Valiant Comics - Coming to a Cinema Near You! - ComicsVerse
Valiant are entering the movie scene!

For years now, superhero fans have watched with fascination as Marvel and DC slugged it out in the sales charts – and nowadays, that battle’s being fought in the cinemas too. But, because these two behemoths have so dominated the public eye, it’s often not been noticed that there are other comic book companies out there. This week one of them, Valiant, took a huge step forward.

Valiant was founded in 1989 by some key experienced figures in the comic book scene, including Jim Shooter (former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel) and Bob Layton (former Marvel writer / editor). Back in the ‘90s, Valiant actually gave the Big Two some serious competition, before falling on hard times back when the comic book industry slumped.

The company was restarted in 2005 as Valiant Entertainment, and officially launched its publishing division in 2012’s “Summer of Valiant”. This was kicked off by X-O MANOWAR, a popular hero who, back in the ‘90s, had sold 8 million copies – no mean feat for an independent, original series.

“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.”

The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.

Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

The blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) joins superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) to begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today.
