And so…the unstoppable X-O Manowar enters the fray!

From East to West, the nation has been cleaved down the middle as Livewire’s defensive attack on the U.S. power grid envelops America in darkness and sets the stage for the biggest clash of powers ever witnessed… On one side, Peter Stanchek’s ragtag team of Renegades – alongside their newly activated army of untrained and wildly unstable psiots – ready themselves for an unsparing firefight with H.A.R.D. Corps and the agents of Omen. On the other, Ninjak and Bloodshot prepare to enter Livewire’s domain inside blacked-out Los Angeles. But as the casualties pile up and the losses mount on both sides, none of them will be ready to confront the full fury of raw power personified as X-O Manowar makes his long-awaited return after a year of self imposed exile among the stars…and delivers a single concussive strike that will send shockwaves across the whole of the Valiant Universe!

The most powerful Valiant event attempted continues in full force with another seismic chapter as New York Times best-selling author Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, Mind MGMT) and superstar artist Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR) unleash X-O Manowar on a world he thought he’d left behind…and fire off the next brutal volley in the coast-to-coast clash of comics icons that will leave no hero unscathed!

Shadowman Icon Variant by DAVE JOHNSON

ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! “DEAD AND GONE” – PART ONE!

For years, Jack Boniface believed that he knew the true story of the Shadowman loa – the true story of the curse inside him. He was wrong.

For the first time, Jack Boniface is about to discover the long-hidden history of the supernatural power that became his birthright… Unmoored in time and space, the loa is about to reveal its untold dimensions…and now, the last defender of the wall between our realm and the Deadside is falling backwards through the astral void, finding himself face to face with his forebears across the centuries – from the paranoia-addled alleyways of 1940s New York to the fire-scorched plantations of the Civil War…all the way back to the primeval height of the African savannah in 40,000 B.C.!

In the shock-inducing aftermath of “FEAR OF THE DARK,” master storyteller Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One) leads a rotating cast of superstar artists – including Shawn Martinbrough (Thief of Thieves), Doug Braithwaite (Justice), and Renato Guedes (Wolverine) – to reveal the full scope and power of the Shadowman mythos…and how three of its forgotten champions stoked its earliest embers…with a legend-fueled odyssey into eons past as “DEAD AND GONE” tells all!

Class is in session as Valiant’s all-ages escapade escalates!

As Valiant Universe’s best and brightest young minds know all too well, Valiant High isn’t your average everyday high school… It’s the kind of place where dodgeball is a literal blood sport and trying to find a date to homecoming can be just as stressful as saving the world! But deep within the hero-filled halls of this otherwise prestigious institute, Principal Harada is hiding a mysterious secret…and Valiant High’s newest foreign exchange student, Colin “Ninjak” King, is ready to seek out the truth – once he’s done giving omega-level nerd Peter Stanchek a cool-kid makeover first, of course!

Get ready for second period as rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (QUANTUM AND WOODY!, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert) and Eisner Award-winning artist Derek Charm (Jughead) detail another hysterical day in the life of the world’s most talented teenagers, in an incredible all-ages adventure set outside of Valiant’s standard superhero continuity!

QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) VOL. 1: KISS KISS KLANG KLANG TPB
Written by DANIEL KIBBLESMITH
Art by KANO with FRANCIS PORTELA
Cover by JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO

The world’s worst superhero team returns in an explosive new ongoing series!

Sometimes…you embrace your destiny. And sometimes…you and your troublemaking adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome superpowers. As a result of their accident, Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – must “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you’re not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody’s birth father really is…and where he’s been hiding all these years.

With great power comes great sibling rivalry! This winter, you’ll believe two men and one goat can split a one bedroom apartment and still be a credible threat to evil and injustice everywhere when QUANTUM AND WOODY make headlines and take names! Starting right here, deeply alarming and untrustworthy writer Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and eye-popping artist Kano (Daredevil) give the Valiant Universe the adjective-worthy superheroes it deserves: QUANTUM AND WOODY!

Can two busted pairs become four of a kind in time to defeat the Hobo King, save the day, and make it back home for happy hour? Let’s hope so…’cause these guys make a really, really bad team. (And you don’t even want to know about the Goat.)
