A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin…with an all-new, prestige format mini-series from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) & Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

#ValiantCraft month coincides with the launch of The Delinquents #1 (of 4)– the disastrous first team-up between Quantum and Woody and Archer and Armstrong, and the next heat-seeking title from Valiant’s all-new Valiant First publishing initiative.

Valiant Reveals World’s Largest Mega-Cover for Armor Hunters – Limited to Six Participating Retailers!

Valiant has announced the Armor Hunters 18-Part Mega-Cover – a limited edition, one-of-a-kind interlocking cover divided across all 18 issues of Armor Hunters, this summer’s hotly anticipated crossover event featuring X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, the Unity team, and many more of Valiant’s most formidable heroes.

Featuring a colossal, four foot tall by two-and-half foot wide cover image by heat-seeking rising star Diego Bernard, the Armor Hunters 18-Part Mega-Cover is the biggest comic book cover ever attempted in the history of the medium, and will span all issues of the Armor Hunters crossover event beginning this June – Armor Hunters #1-4, Unity #8-11, X-O Manowar #26-29, Armor Hunters: Bloodshot #1-3, and Armor Hunters: Harbinger #1-3.

Spotlighting each of Valiant’s greatest heroes – and a few select classified recruits – as they combat the Armor Hunters’ brutal invasion of Earth in search of the X-O Manowar armor, this is the only place to witness the true size and scale of the Hunters’ deadliest asset – the gigantic alien robot simply called GIN-GR.

Available in limited quantities per issue, each component piece of the Armor Hunters 18-Part Mega-Cover will be available exclusively from these six participating retailers nationwide:
