As revealed today during the #ValiantSummit 2016 event live from New York City’s renowned UCB Theatre, Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce "THE FUTURE OF VALIANT" – an all-new wave of ongoing series, prestige format projects and standalone events from a star-studded roster of some of comics’ most visionary talents. Beginning in July with the first, much-demanded ongoing series for the breakout hero of the year, FAITH, "THE FUTURE OF VALIANT" will extend throughout 2016 with a total of seven epic series – each introducing an innovative array of new concepts and characters…and firmly establishing Valiant’s place as the premier publisher of creative storytelling in comics today:
FAITH #1 by Jody Houser, Pere Perez & Marguerite Sauvage in July
GENERATION ZERO #1 by Fred Van Lente & Francis Portela in August
BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) by Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp in September
BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1 (of 4) by Jeff Lemire & Doug Braithwaite in October
HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 by Rafer Roberts & Darick Roberston in November
SAVAGE #1 (of 4) by B. Clay Moore, Clayton Henry & Lewis LaRosa in November
DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) by Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine in December
"With 'THE FUTURE OF VALIANT,’ Valiant is entering an ambitious new phase – one that will challenge not only the size and scale of the stories we choose to tell, but even the very notion of what a Valiant comic can be," said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. "In just a short time, Valiant has established itself as the industry's best reviewed publisher and a creative force to be reckoned with. Now, with 'THE FUTURE OF VALIANT,' we're taking the mission of creating the best comics possible even further, and expanding with astonishing new concepts, a bold line-up of new characters, and one of the most talented rosters of creative talent working anywhere today." "Within the past year alone, Valiant has made unprecedented strides by bringing some of comics' most celebrated characters to the fore. But DIVINITY and FAITH were just the first salvos," said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. "In 'THE FUTURE OF VALIANT,’ we're about to witness the next great Valiant heroes of tomorrow come roaring out of the gate with GENERATION ZERO, BRITANNIA, and SAVAGE. And we haven't even revealed the full extent of what's coming for BLOODSHOT U.S.A. and HARBINGER RENEGADES, let alone the universe of new ideas that is DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE… For new fans or old, this is a phenomenal time to find out why Valiant has succeeded in building the most acclaimed and accessible line of comics on the shelves."
