If you're already familiar with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, that classic piece of Arthurian Lore, then you're no doubt aware that it's a pretty weird story. It's built around strange trickery and tests of loyalty, suspiciously non-fatal beheadings, and, of course, Christmas. But despite the best efforts of the 14th century, it does not involve time travelers, the Eternal Warrior, or glowing sunglasses.
Until now! Next month, Fred Van Lente and Cary Nord's Immortal Brothers: The Tale of the Green Knight, in which Faith is down with a bit of con crud and Archer (of & Armstrong fame) tells her a story of chivalry and knighthood that bears a suspicious resemblance to Valiant's three immortal brothers.
Since its resurrection earlier this decade, Valiant Entertainment has rebuilt its roster of heroes into powerhouse franchises, and this year seems set to take advantage of that well-earned iconography. The publisher has teased a new initiative for 2017 titled Icons which seems to be a celebrating of the most, well, iconic characters under the Valiant banner.
Every month, Comixology adds more titles to its burgeoning all-you-can-eat subscription service Comixology Unlimited, which allows readers access to a virtual library of comics for a flat monthly fee. February’s update goes live today, and the service is set to be bolstered by a new wave of awesome comics for you to peruse, including Danger Girl, Harbinger Wars and Lady Snowblood.
Faith's got a lot of problems these days. That shouldn't be too surprising considering that we're barreling towards April and the launch of "Faithless," a new story that reunites all of her arch-villains into a super-team dedicated to her destruction, but before we get to that, she's going to have to get through some other horrors. And by that, I mean that she's had a dose of a freaky ghost.
That's only part of the problem, though. When the literal spectres of her past start to haunt her, Faith begins to doubt her own place in the world. Check out a preview of next week's issue below and see if maybe --- just maybe --- this might connect to the Faith Revenge Squad's impending debut!
If you already read Faith, then you've already seen Valiant's premiere heroine fighting off some of the biggest threats that the universe can throw at her: An invasion from the planet-conquering Vine, a demon int he form of a housecat, and even an actor who decided that being a supervillain was far more fun than playing one. But the good news is that Faith has only ever had to face them one at a time. Until now.
Jody Houser, Joe Eisma, and Marguerite Sauvage are teaming up the villains in "The Faithless," a new storyline debuting in April that finds Faith Herbert facing off with a gang of bad guys that all want revenge.
In the final day of our fantasy draft, our writers pick a spy, a magician, a feminist icon, and another Green Lantern, and they move away from Marvel and DC to pick some great heroes from beyond the Big Two to round out their teams.
Some people say that politics and politicians have no place in comics, but that's just not true. Captain America Comics #1 saw the hero punching out Adolf Hitler on the front cover; FDR was in an issue of Detective Comics two full issues before Batman debuted; and this November, Valiant's premiere female superhero teams up with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Faith #5.
This December, Valiant is doing a line-wide series of variant covers featuring cosplayers dressed as Valiant characters, from Faith to Archer & Armstrong, all the way down the line to Bloodshot. The thing is, all of these cosplayers... are cats.
Gather 'round, children, and let me tell you a tale of times past. Back in the days before the Internet, back when you could not read through a disturbingly thorough summary of any comic book character and/or lightsaber fighting style anytime you wanted, we got our information from Who's Whos and Official Handbooks, and by gum, that's how we liked it.
Nowadays, even in this more modern era, Valiant is keeping the dream alive with Valiant Universe Handbook 2016, a compendium of information that'll bring you up to date on characters like Bloodshot, X-O Manowar, Faith, and of course, Ninjak. Really though, the only fact you need to know about that dude is that he rules. Check out a preview!
If you missed the announcement a few weeks ago, Comixology's new Unlimited service is being touted as Netflix for indie comics. Subscribers pay a flat monthly fee, and they get access to a library of titles from publishers like Image, Valiant, Archie and more, including smaller self-publishers. And, like Netflix, new stuff is showing up on a monthly basis to keep readers hooked.
This month, as we roll into August, Comixology has announced the addition of another 25 titles --- and if you're looking for a good place to start, I've got a couple of suggestions. Starting today, you can read the entirety of Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage's Faith miniseries from Valiant, and the first volume of Eric Jones and Landry Q. Walker's amazing Danger Club.
