Trevor Hairsine Joins Valiant as Exclusive Creator
In advance of the release of Eternal Warrior #1 this September, Valiant has announced that artist Trevor Hairsine has signed on as the publisher’s next exclusive artist!
A veteran of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine, Hairsine made his mainstream comics breakthrough in 2002 as the artist of the acclaimed mini-series Cla$$war. Shortly thereafter, Hairsine moved to Marvel, where was named to the first wave of up-and-coming “Young Guns,” alongside Jim Cheung, Olivier Coipel, David Finch, Adi Granov, and Steve McNiven. From 2003 onward, Hairsine penciled several high-profile titles, including Ultimate Six with writer Brian Michael Bendis, X-Men: Deadly Genesis with writer Ed Brubaker, and Ultimate Nightmare with writer Warren Ellis.
Hairsine made his Valiant debut earlier in early 2013, illustrating the prelude to the best-selling “Planet Death” storyline in X-O Manowar and, at present, is completing an acclaimed four-issue run on Harbinger with co-artist Khari Evans. On September 11th, the newly Valiant-exclusive artist will launch his first ongoing series for Valiant with New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak in the pages of Eternal Warrior #1.
Hitting shops on September 11th, Eternal Warrior #1 is the first issue of all-new ongoing series featuring Valiant’s most feared immortal, the Eternal Warrior. Across ten millennia and a thousand battlefields, Gilad Anni-Padda has traversed the darkest, most mysterious corners of history. But the horror and bloodshed of constant warfare has finally taken its toll on the man myth calls the Eternal Warrior…and he has abdicated his duties as the Fist and the Steel of Earth for a quiet life of seclusion. But when a blood vendetta from the distant past suddenly reappears in the modern day, he must decide if he will return to the ways of war…for the child who betrayed him thousands of years ago…
Hairsine joins Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord and New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart as the next addition to Valiant’s roster of exclusive talent.
