Valiant is kicking off the new year right by offering a big digital sale through ComiXology, where you can snag over 500 issues for .99 cents each. Valiant is one of the most consistent publishers out there, and if you haven’t ventured into their territory yet, I highly recommend their comics. Sale ends on January 3rd, 2014. READ MORE
Valiant is one of the few publishers around who has been successfully pulling off events. I don’t mean in terms of sales, but in terms of following through on their promises an delivering quality crossovers with their biggest heroes. The publisher teased it last week, but “Armor Hunters” will officially be their next event, kicking off in June of 2014 with the first issue of the mini-series.
The event will see a “surgical strike team” coming from the edges of space who want nothing but to destroy the stolen X-O Manowar armor. It all sounds quite Marvel to me, but I’m sure Robert Venditti and Doug Braithwaite will stray from that cosmic insanity. READ MORE
Valiant just sent out a nice little teaser for what we can only assume is related to “X-O Manowar”. The image (see below) shows a smashed-in Manowar helmet and promises a new enemy called “Armor Hunters” for now. Expect more details to come in the New Year. READ MORE
Valiant proudly announced today that “Mind MGMT” scribe, Matt Kindt, will be launching “Unity”, a new ongoing comic series this november. Kindt will be accompanied by Doug Braithwaite, who will be doing art for the series. The series follows a deadly team of villains assembled by Toyo Harada who is hell-bent on a mission to bring down X-O Manowar. This is the most ambitious book Valiant has backed since their relaunch last year, and with Kindt behind the wheel, it should be pretty damn good. Check out all the details below. READ MORE

X-O Manowar has consistently been at the top of my reading pile each and every month by maintaining a high level of quality. This issue marks the start of the “Planet Death” storyline that writer Robert Venditti has been building up to since issue #1, which is the showdown between Aric and The Vine. READ MORE
Trying to find new ways to rave about Valiant’s books is becoming increasingly difficult each month. The company’s entire line of books are stellar and consistently leading the pack is X-O Manowar. Writer Robert Venditti has taken “X-O Manowar”, and turned it into the crown jewel of the company’s relaunch. “X-O Manowar” combines all the best elements of “300″, “Conan”, and “Iron Man” into one melting pot that is enhanced by spellbinding action, intriguing characters, and some remarkably poignant storytelling.

The return of Valiant Comics is off to a fantastic start, showing that they are serious contenders in the semi-indie publishing market. They were once the biggest name in comics, they disappeared, and now they’re back in action. X-O Manowar pits technologically advanced aliens up against puny humans in an all out battle for survival.
