Valiant Doubles Down On Release Dates By Printing Calendars

It's an unprecedented move!


Source: Press Release

Shocking the entire industry, Valiant Comics is committing itself to their announced release dates for X-O Manowar throughout 2017, by printing a calendar full of those dates. The X-O MANOWAR 2017 CALENDAR is coming free to all participating retailers in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The new X-O Manowar is written by Matt Kindt and a rotating cast of artists, including Tomas Giorello , Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, and Mico Suayan. This release schedule commitment explains why Valiant announced 5 artists over 13 issues.

In an EXXXCLUSIVE, Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso said, "We always treated release dates like the Use By Date on food. It's recommended, but you don't need to follow the rules."

DC co-publisher Dan Didio told The Outhouse, "Boy, this makes us look bad."

Overheard from Valiant editor Tom Brennan, through Gavin Dillinger hiding in his closet, he said, "The Outhouse wrote something positive about us?"

X-O Manowar #1 releases March 22.
