Get to know the characters from Valiant High!

We’ve got a ton of Valiant collections on sale, so you can read up on Ninjak, X-O Manowar, and more!

NINJAK Vol. 1: WEAPONEER

Every master spy…has to start somewhere.

Then: Meet inexperienced MI-6 recruit Colin King on his first mission in the field as he learns the basics of spycraft and counterintelligence, and develops a volatile relationship with his first handler.

Now: Colin King is Ninjak, the world’s foremost intelligence operative, weapons expert, and master assassin. And he’s hunting the Shadow Seven - a secret cabal of shinobi masters with mysterious ties to his training and tragic past.

X-O MANOWAR Vol. 1: BY THE SWORD

The beginning of the all-new Valiant Universe starts here! Aric of Dacia is a brash warrior and heir to the throne of the Visigoth people. He has lived his life under the heel of the Roman Empire, but now a far more terrible enemy has come to subjugate him. Taken from his home and family, Aric is enslaved aboard a starship belonging to a brutal race of alien colonizers known as The Vine. If he is to have any hope of escaping and returning to Earth, he will have to steal the Vine’s most powerful weapon - a sentient suit of indestructible armor - and become X-O Manowar!

Bloodshot Reborn #10

  • Writer - Jeff Lemire
  • Art - Lewis Larosa
  • Cover - Lewis Larosa & Brian Reber

“The Analog Man” Part 1

Time jump - 30 years into the future!  Ray and Magic have been living happily in a small village in California.  Things are tough, but their community has been kept safe by Ray.  California is a great desert now, caused by the walling off of Los Angeles and their control of the water supplies.  Rations aren’t enough, so Ray has to steal what his community needs.  But dodging X-O Manowar-type sentries and the maniacal Shadowmen is only the beginning when an old friend shows up.

I was pretty blown away by this issue!  I didn’t know what to expect from this story, and what I got was a pretty big surprise!  The whole feel is Mad Max meets Old Man Logan and dropped square into the Valiant Universe! It’s all very cinematic!  Larosa captures the atmosphere of this dry world so well!  The feel of the dry and burned out desert contrasted with the sleek high-tech walls of Los Angeles really sets the tone.  Not to mention the detail he puts into the characters - especially Ray.  You can feel his weathered skin, and the change to Bloodshot in uncanny!

Lemire does wonders in just a few pages with establishing this “new” yet so familiar version of Ray/Bloodshot.  His narration reveals so much about his feelings and attitudes.  The basics of the story are laid out here, but I so can’t wait to see what the rest of this brings!

Amazing beginning to this arc that proves why this is one of my favorite comics!

ICONS - Felipe Massafera

Revealed at the ComicsPRO meeting last week, “Icons” dosen’t appear to be any sort of event or mini-series but a pointer at what to expect from Valiant in 2017-18, beginning with the relaunch of X-O Manowar in March. 

The figures represented in the lettering (X-O Manowar, Faith, Bloodshot, Shadowman, and Toyo Harada) aren’t to surprising. The first three currently star in monthly series of their own or others. Bloodshot seems to be headed toward another series after Rebirth #0 comes out. Shadowman Jack Boniface will be appearing in the Rapture mini-series beginning in May, with marketing indicating something spinning out of it for him. Toyo Harada will be involved somehow in 2018 Harbinger Wars 2.

spider-man-obsession  asked:

You seem like a person who would know this: if I've never read a valiant book, should I pick up the current valiant humble bundle? If so, what should I read first?

I haven’t read as much of the current Valiant series as, say, @theisb or @superheroeswearingjackets , but everything I’ve read has been great, and I hear nothing but good about the rest of it, so I would say it is definitely worth it to grab that Humble Bundle.

As for what to read first, that’s a little harder, since there aren’t a ton of volume 1s in the set. Probably start with that Zeroes and Origins collection at a guess?

Otherwise, my favorite stuff is the Fred Van Lente material, so that includes Archer and Armstrong and Ivar, Time Walker, but if you want something a little more on the serious side, X-O Manowar is a good pick, as would be Ninjak. I don’t know how well The Valiant stands alone, but that would introduce a bunch of the universe’s characters. Faith would be a good pick, too.

Maybe someone who’s read more of the line can be more helpful.

Here’s the link if you want to see what’s available.

CÓMIC | X-O MANOWAR, Tiempo de revisar el impacto Valiant

Considerado por muchos como el tercer gran universo en el mundo de los cómics, Valiant encuentra en este personaje a su principal estandarte, la encarnación exacta de todo aquello que le ha válido ganarse el lugar que hoy ostentan. Heredero de la tradición impulsada por íconos con más de cien años de existencia, como el literario John Cárter de Edgar Rice Burroughs, X-O Manowar –creación de Jim Shooter y Bob Layton- fue más allá de las anacrónicas interpretaciones de los superhéroes, llevando sus andanzas al campo de la fantasía, apuntando más hacia la aventura épica, algo que incluso Marvel -hoy totalmente familiarizada con este concepto- tardó en entender. Así, vimos como hace 20 años, la historia romana fue reinterpretada, con la introducción de un guerrero poseedor de una ultra tecnológica armadura de naturaleza alienígena, que habría de oponerse a los alcances de los conquistadores. Valiant ofreció entonces una poderosa bocanada de aire fresco que el mundo de los superhéroes, que en ese entonces recurría a la muerte de su máximo exponente, para reactivar el mercado. Aun así las cosas no le fueron sencillas, el impulso no fue para siempre, hubo cambios, pero la editorial sobrevivió a los tiempos difíciles, para renacer de sus cenizas y presentar una abanico de interesantes títulos, los cuales hoy, vía Editorial Kamite, llegan a territorio mexicano, con el otrora representante de la vanguardia, nuevamente como estandarte. Titulada como Espadas y Campos Abiertos, se trata de un reinicio para X-O Manowar, la gestación del impetuoso guerrero visigodo que habrá de convertirse en leyenda, perpetrada por Robert Venditti - The Surrogates-, quien decide enfocarse mucho más en las acciones que en los diálogos y hacer énfasis en referencias históricas. El arte va por cuenta de Cary Nord, en sociedad con el entintador Stefano Gaudiano y el colorista Moose Baumann, que sin abandonar un estilo claramente conservador, intercalan espectaculares ilustraciones a páginas completas. Sin duda esta pieza es una conveniente introducción de Valiant al mercado mexicano, sobre todo ahora que está por llegar a la pantalla grande, ideal para aquellos que no estaban familiarizados con las propuestas que hace un par de años, le valieron ser reconocida como la mejor editorial de cómics en los Estados Unidos.
