April 14th, 2022 — Valiant is proud to introduce an all-new era in marketing taking the brand to new heights with the promotion of Nic Osborn to Marketing Manager and introduction of Cody White in the role of Sales Communication Coordinator.

Joining the team last year, Nic Osborn has been promoted to the role of Marketing Manager following his success promoting the Valiant brand in comics with the debut of The Year of Valiant lineup including the upcoming launches of ARCHER & ARMSTRONG FOREVER, BOOK OF SHADOWS, BLOODSHOT UNLEASHED and X-O MANOWAR UNCONQUERED alongside Valiant’s entrance into the metaverse, Kickstarter initiatives and more. Nic will be focusing on continuing to expand the Valiant brand while having a larger presence in the publishing of Valiant comics.

Stepping into the new role of Sales Communication Coordinator is Cody White. After a lifetime of reading, writing about and talking comics with anybody who would listen, Cody White is joining the Valiant team and eager to promote the Valiant brand.

With a Masters Degree in English from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, Cody has spent the last four years working in freelance comics press. Now, as the Sales Communication Coordinator at Valiant Entertainment, he brings all of that experience to help bolster the already stellar reputation of the Valiant Universe.

I remember buying the original releases of X-O Manowar #1, Bloodshot #1, Archer & Armstrong #1 and being super impressed by just how tangible the connections between stories in the Valiant Universe were,” he says. “That tightness of continuity has continued to this day to be a hallmark of Valiant and to me as both a fan and an advocate is truly something exciting and unique about this universe.”

Current Director of Marketing for Valiant Publishing Gregg Katzman will be moving on to a new opportunity in comics press and Valiant wishes him all the success.

“I’m grateful for my time with Valiant and I have nothing but optimism about the upcoming slate of comics,” says Gregg. “Valiant’s Marketing is in great hands with Nic and Cody. I look forward to everything they will accomplish while I follow Valiant as press and an active member of the Valiant fan community!”
