BiblioBoard Expands Comic Books Collection to Include Popular Content from Valiant Entertainment
BiblioBoard has announced a new partnership with Valiant Entertainment to bring the publisher’s award-winning library to BiblioBoard’s Comics and Graphic Novels catalog for digital consumption in libraries nationwide. Spanning nearly one thousand titles, from Bloodshot to Divinity to Quantum and Woody and X-O Manowar, Valiant’s beloved universe of superhero characters are now available at the click of a button on BiblioBoard Library with no multi-user limitations or turnaways. This means no checkouts, returns or waitlists.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, Valiant is one of the most successful comic book publishing companies in the history of the medium with more than 81 million comics sold and a library of more than 2,000 distinct characters, including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Harbinger, Shadowman, Archer & Armstrong, and many more. Established by a brain trust of legendary comics creators – including former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter; seminal Iron Man writer and artist, Bob Layton; and the visionary writer and illustrator of Wolverine: Weapon X, Barry Windsor-Smith – Valiant’s heroes and villains inhabit the largest independently owned superhero universe anywhere in comics.
In recent years the company has returned to great commercial and critical success, winning a Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year and numerous industry awards and accolades. Valiant’s titles consistently rate among the best reviewed in comics.
BiblioBoard’s Comics and Graphic Novels catalog now contains over 3,500 titles with nearly one thousand titles from Valiant. Valiant Entertainment’s content is being sold as a ReadersFirst, subscription-pricing model with pricing tiered per library size, putting the collection within the budget of any library.
