Death and the deity!

The horrifying truth behind Rome’s grisly string of murders has finally come to light… but will Antonius Axia and his mysterious new partner – the gladiator Achillia – be able to stomach it? It’s a race against the clock to stop a serial killer – who may very well be the vengeful spirit of Apollo himself — before it strikes again! But should Antonius and Achillia fail in their mission, they’ll condemn not only Rome…but those Antonius holds dear as well.

Visionary creators Peter Milligan (Shade, the Changing Man) and Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) bring the latest case for history’s first detective to a chilling close…and forever alter the history of civilization itself!

Secret Weapons #1 – Oscar Nominee Eric Heisserer & Artist Raul Allen Recruit Valiant’s Electrifying New Team in June!

Valiant has released a first look inside Secret Weapons #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new Valiant Prestige-format limited series initiating a riveting new turning point for the most acclaimed publisher in comics today!

On June 28th, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Eric Heisserer – writer of the internationally acclaimed, smash-hit motion picture Arrival, as well as Valiant’s upcoming Harbinger and Bloodshot feature films from Sony Pictures – leads the charge alongside Harvey Award-nominated artists Raul Allen and Patricia Martin to launch the super-charged heroine called Livewire into her very first solo adventure as she recruits a new generation of superhumans with unique abilities unlike any we’ve seen before…

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rexo seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…

Featuring an astonishing line of covers from Raul Allen, Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, Roberto De La Torre, and Bryan Hitch!

A lethal menace has been loosed on the world and everyone – alive or dead – is in harm’s way!

Shan Fong-Mirage is married to a ghost – the late Hwen Mirage, who she herself pulled back from the brink of eternal imprisonment in the underworld. But this team of paranormal investigators has discovered that even the unliving like Hwen can be killed…and that their own research has unwittingly freed a malevolent spirit from a centuries-old enchantment. Now innocent victims – both among the living and dearly departed – are being massacred. To set this right, the Mirages need to unlock another copy of the ancient spell…and only one other paranormal collector has it. And so now the good doctors must pay a house call to an old enemy…

In time, even the dead may die…and, now, after multiple 2015 Harvey Award nominations, the most sought-after couple in comics returns with an all-new adventure from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)!

Occult investigators Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives in the thrall of an epic love that few will ever have…until Hwen died tragically before his time. Now, after a perilous trip through the underworld, Shan and Hwen are reunited…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead – incapable of opening a spellbook or even touching his wife.

Their options exhausted, the death-defying Doctors Mirage are about to enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen’s solid form…and grant his ghost a second life. But, in the wrong hands, their ancient rite will become a tool of terror – and unleash a force of pure, homicidal evil that lusts for the murder of the living and the dead alike… a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!

The X-Men Will Fall

Official Press Release

THE X-MEN WILL FALL

This May, leading up to the biggest decision of the X-Men’s lives, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins and rising star artists Robert De La Torre and Laurence Campbell sow seeds of this discontent amongst the ranks of the mutant nation in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)! There is a calm before every storm and in the months to come, the Children of the Atom will be faced with a decisive turning point. One that threatens to pit brother against brother, lover against lover, and mutant against mutant.

“To understand what is coming in the X-Men, you need to understand what has already transpired” says X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “The history of the X-Men is a huge tapestry and what we’re trying to do here is sum up the necessary info, while filling in blanks and adding new twists that will set fanboys a-Twittering. In this series, Paul lays out the complexities for the fans so they can see the foundation that is beginning to crack.”

The dream that Charles Xavier built – crumbles and what you knew about the X-Men changes here. It all begins in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)!
