Valiant Heads to ComicsPRO 2019 for a Toyo Harada Wake

Valiant Entertainment is heading to the 13th Annual ComicsPRO meeting taking place February 21-23 in Charlotte, NC with a bunch of cool freebies and an unforgettable celebration of the world’s most powerful man.

Valiant will host an hourlong reception for ComicsPRO attendees to celebrate the life of Toyo Harada from 7:30-8:30 pm on Friday, February 22nd. Guests will receive a Valiant tie and in memoriam cards and have a chance to sign the late Mr. Harada’s guest book. Funeral attire is encouraged but not required. It’s what the late and great Mr. Harada would want, after all. He may be gone, but his memory lives on in The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #1 by Joshua Dysart and CAFU, on sale March 13th.

ComicsPRO attendees will also receive “Welcome Bags” from Valiant and even more retailer-exclusive goodies during roundtable chats with Valiant staff. Want to relieve some stress? Squeeze a chunk of New Japan with the Fallen World stress ball, based on the upcoming series by Dan Abnett and Adam Pollina debuting on May 1st. Need to jot down some important secrets? Use the Fallen World pen! And after a long day, unwind with the Fallen World shot glass.

Show the world you rock by sporting a Punk Mambo pin, based on the gritty new series debuting April 24th by Cullen Bunn and Adam Gorham. Or use the Punk Mambo pink highlighter to brighten your scribbles on The Forgotten Queen sticky notes, based on the phenomenal new series by Tini Howard and Amilcar Pinna coming out on February 27th. There may or may not be some other fun items. (Spoiler: There are.)

While these items are for attending ComicsPRO retailers only, fans who wish to obtain any of these cool collectibles should check if their local comic shop is a member of ComicsPRO and planning to attend the annual meeting.

Meet Armstrong in…A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #1 – Coming in March!

GET SMASHED…OR BE SMASHED! Valiant’s (somewhat) dynamic duo are going “IN THE BAG” for AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES from rising star Rafer Roberts and comic book superstar David Lafuente!

Meet Armstrong: Since the ancient city of Ur, this immortal adventurer has spent the last 7,000 years drinking and carousing his way through history alongside some of the greatest merrymakers the world has ever known.

Meet Archer: A sheltered teenage martial arts master and expert marksman that was raised for a single purpose – to kill the devil incarnate. Little did he know that this undying evil was actually Armstrong (he’s actually a pretty good guy…once you get to know him) and, since hitting the road together, the two have become great friends and even better partners.

Now: Archer is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet – a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It’s like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there…and he doesn’t exactly have a maid service.)

Imprisoned in Armstrong’s satchel for centuries, Bacchus now commands a legion of monsters, goblins and golems bent on escaping back into the world of man and enacting revenge on their captor… Can Archer single-handedly combat the godly embodiment of intoxication himself – and rescue his best buddy – without becoming lost amongst Armstrong’s endless repository of bizarre artifacts and historical oddities in the process?
