Thanks to their respective billion dollar movie franchises, people everywhere are familiar with the superhero universes of Marvel and DC. But the Golden and Silver Ages of comics were boom periods for the superhero genre, with dozens of publishers trying their hands at the hot new genre, including Gold Key Comics.

The heroes of Gold Key never quite gained a permanent foothold in pop culture consciousness, but they've proved surprisingly resilient, and they're about to be reintroduced once again via Dynamite Entertainment's new series The Sovereigns as well as the recently announced new Magnus series. Here's everything you need to know about the history of the Gold Key heroes.

Secret Weapons was a Valiant team-up book from the '90s that starred Livewire, Bloodshot, and Geomancer. Later this year, the franchise gets a 21st century reboot that places Livewire front and center where she belongs. In June, Eric Heiserrer, Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín will relaunch Secret Weapons as Livewire rounds up the kids with powers deemed too insignificant for Toyo Harada's Harbinger program.

ComicsAlliance chatted with Allén about his collaboration process in defining the visual language of Secret Weapons, Livewire's role as a lead character, and the re-emergence of iconic Valiant villain Rex-o.

Last year, Britannia --- the prestige murder mystery miniseries set in Ancient Rome, from Peter Milligan and Juan Jose Ryp --- took a lot of people by surprise, but showed that Valiant remains a publisher that'll keep you guessing with the genres and conventions it'll pull out of its hat.

Next month, Rome's first and only detective, Antonius Axia, returns for a new mystery and Valiant have provided us a preview of the first issue.

If you've looked at a line-up of comics stacked across the shelves, either in a comics shop or in digital stores like Comixology, then you've almost certainly seen the work of designer Tom Muller. From Motor Crush to Unfollow to Wolf to the new X-O Manowar series at Valiant, Muller's work has graced the covers --- and interiors --- of some of the most interesting and visually experimental comics of the last decade.

With the increasing attention and awareness that surrounds the art of design in comics, the work of people like Muller bears investigating. ComicsAlliance spoke to Muller about his entry into comics, his current work for publishers including Valiant and Image Comics, and how he approaches each project he takes on.

Battle Lines Are Drawn In ‘Divinity III: Stalinverse’ Finale [Preview]

DIVINITY-III_004_FEATURED

Divinity III: Stalinverse found the Valiant Universe of 2017 suddenly under the tight control of a Soviet Union that not only never fell, it expanded across the globe. Writer Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine have built a fully fleshed-out world in which every Valiant character is affected by this alteration of reality. Now, here in the final issue of the series, it's probably time to set the timeline back to the proper one, where American leaders being under Russian control is unthinkable. Of course, there are a bunch of Soviets (some with superpowers) who want things to stay just how they are.

Aric Is Having A Bad Day In ‘X-O Manowar’ #1 [Preview]

For fifty issues, X-O Manowar was arguably the crown jewel of the Valiant Universe. It was the longest-running title, the book that introduced concepts like the Vine and even Ninjak to the larger universe, and it set the tone of smart superheroics that has defined the line ever since its relaunch. After it ended, I think we all knew that there would absolutely be another take coming along soon, but Robert Venditti, Cary Nord, and company definitely left a hard act to follow.

But when X-O Manowar returns next week, that's exactly what Matt Kindt, Tomas Giorello, and Diego Rodriguez are setting out to do with the launch of a massive epic spanning four story arcs that take Aric of Dacia out of retirement and into an alien world of war and conquest -- and you can read a preview!

Journey Through The Shadows Of Deadside With A First Look At ‘Rapture’ [Previews]

Back when they first announced it, Valiant referred to Matt Kindt and Cafu's upcoming Rapture as "Lord of the Rings for the Valiant universe." It's designed as a fantasy epic sprawling across four issues, building on the mythology of the Deadside and exploring a shadowy world of demonic fantasy and a war against Heaven itself. But if we're going to be real here, I think there's a chance that it might actually end up being better than Lord of the Rings.

I mean, Lord of the Rings doesn't have Ninjak jump-kicking skeletons, now does it?

Good Thing: How Valiant Makes Blockbuster Superheroes Accessible

I'm not a major superhero kinda guy. I came to comics fairly late, and never managed to dive that much into the superhero realm. I think I always thought it was too big, with too much to catch up on, and a lot of the superhero books I read when I was younger always seemed like they knew something I didn't. That whole lore and world existed way before I was even born.

I even came to Valiant's rebooted universe pretty late, only catching up with it recently. But with Valiant, I found a superhero universe I could actually jump into.
