Valiant Solicitations for January  2013

Take a look at all the cool things Valiant has planned for January!



Source: Press Release

January.  A new year for a new company.  Our friends at Valiant had a very successful year, but it's time to look ahead to 2013.  Looking at the solicits below, it seems like that's exactly what The Flyin' V is up to.  Taking a cursory glance over these solicits, there's a lot of big-time stuff going down.  Planet Death in X-O Manowar, the introduction of the new Geomancer in Archer & Armstrong, we learn something new about the past life of Bloodshot, and a new team member in Harbinger (not to mention the first trade of that series).  All this, plus the continuation of the first arc of the highly-anticipated Shadowman. That's a pretty big month for The Flyin' V.

The Renegades recruit their newest member – Torque!
 
In a shed in the backwoods of Northern Georgia lives a meek, sequestered teen named John Torkelson. Raised just this side of feral, and on a steady diet of MMA and reality TV, fried catfish and Cheeto pie, he's a firm believer that women should be seen and not heard (though he really hasn't met many). But when four strange, super-powered outlaw teenagers suddenly appear in the woods outside his shed, Torkelson's life takes a turn he could've never imagined. Now the boy his poppa called "Stump" is about to become more man than he could've ever imagined. But then...what exactly is a "real man"? For that matter, what's a real hero? Only one thing's certain, the Renegades are about to get a hell of a lot stronger.

HARBINGER VOL. 1: OMEGA RISING TPB
Written by JOSHUA DYSART
Art by KHARI EVANS, LEWIS LAROSA, and MATTHEW CLARK
Cover by DOUG BRAITHWAITE
 
A better future. Or no future at all.
 
Super-powered teenager Peter Stanchek is on a dangerous path. Skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Peter is quickly realizing that he’s a psionically-charged “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. But Peter’s plight has not gone unnoticed. Respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger Toyo Harada is about to offer Peter the chance at the things for which the boy has always longed — family, inner peace, self-control — and induct him into the sprawling, secret network of conspiracy and subversion known as the Harbinger Foundation. Now Peter begins his long road towards a destiny that will shake the very foundations of the Valiant Universe. His first lesson? All power comes with a price.
 
Collecting the first five issues of the critically acclaimed series by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier), acclaimed artists Khari Evans (Carbon Grey) and Lewis Larosa (PunisherMAX), this is the perfect place to catch up with the series that Comic Book Resources calls “superheroes at its best”.
