Valiant Bravely Cuts Prices on Select Trade Paperbacks

The publisher apparently has some cash to throw around, so it's going to pass some of that on to you.

Do you remember The Summer of Valiant? It was a heady time when Valiant made its big return to comic book shelves this past summer. X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Harbinger, and Archer & Armstrong all showed up and a good time was had by all. Well, Valiant must have pulled down some scratch from those titles, because they're willing to do something no other comic book publisher is able to do: cut prices. In an effort to introduce their launch titles to more people, The Flyin' V is going to be offering the first trades of all four of the above named titles for less money than they would have, apparently. The first collection of X-O Manowar hit shelves for less than a ten-dollar cup of coffee, and now the three other titles are following suit. So there you have it, folks. Trade paperbacks for $9.99. Good deal. 

Here's the press release:
