In July, Valiant Entertainment announced its next major title, a four-issue miniseries the publisher states will have a dramatic effect on the direction of its entire universe.

Written by Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt and featuring art by Paolo Rivera, "The Valiant" teams Bloodshot, the Eternal Warrior and the Geomancer for a mission to thwart the plans of the Immortal Enemy. Along the way, other characters from the Valiant U will join the battle, including the Eternal Warrior's brother, Armstrong, Archer, Ninjak, X-O Manowar and more.

A battle ten millennia in the making...

Valiant Entertainment is proud to present the first look inside THE VALIANT #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new prestige format four-issue limited series beginning in December from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) and Matt Kindt (RAI, UNITY, Mind MGMT), and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

Featuring covers by Paolo Rivera, Jeff Lemire & Matt Kindt, and Eisner Award winner Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie), THE VALIANT is a universe-spanning journey featuring all of Valiant's biggest heroes!
