Hi there! Stoneman here, filling in for Royal Nonesuch, who took a sabbatical from his career as a successful comic book journalist to become a storm chaser after viewing the 1996 film Twister while in an impressively more inebriated state than usual. Royal usually covers Valiant's news in a manner that's uncharacteristically professional for this place, which is probably why they're the only major comic book publisher that still actively talks to us. I'd like to keep it that way, so let me present Valiant's press release below in its unedited entirety, so I can get back to emailing my resume to ComicBookResources.
VALIANT's Original Creators Launch the SIGNATURE SERIES
Valiant is proud to announce the Valiant Signature Series – a new line of covers spotlighting the creators that forged the original Valiant Universe!
Valiant will release one Signature Series cover per month, beginning this October with the Harbinger #17 Valiant Signature Series cover by Sean Chen – the veteran artist that began his comics career at Valiant with titles includingX-O Manowar, Harbinger, Bloodshot, and Rai and the Future Force. Over the course of the coming months, the Signature Series will also debut new works by fan favorite creators Bob Hall (Shadowman), Mark Moretti (Eternal Warrior), Kevin VanHook (Archer & Armstrong), Sal Velluto (Bloodshot) and more as they interpret the modern day versions of Valiant's signature heroes for the very first time. The first of many to come, look for more Signature Series artists to be announced in the near future.
"I began my career in comics at the original Valiant and all of us who were there have stayed very close over the years," Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce told MTV Geek
. "Now, with the new publishing line well underway, it's an immense pleasure to finally be reuniting with the talents who forged the foundation and gave the original Valiant Universe such a special and well-deserved mystique."
Added Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani:
"Valiant is incredibly fortunate to have worked with a long list of incredible talents in its 25 year history, and their work is something that we continue to celebrate to this day. As both fans and creators, we've been anxiously awaiting the moment when some of Valiant's original greats would return to bring their vision to the modern day Valiant Universe, and, with the Valiant Signature Series, that moment has finally arrived. Sean Chen, Bob Hall, Mark Moretti, Kevin VanHook, Sal Velluto – these are the guys who helped build the house we live in, and fans can look forward to seeing even more storied talents from the original Valiant era return over the next year."
The return of talents that made the Valiant Universe great begins this October with the Harbinger #17 Valiant Signature Series cover by Sean Chen! Ask your local retailer for details.
