Valiant High feels like something I accidentally wished into existence. Even putting aside the fact that I'm a huge fan of teenage superheroics and alternate universe stories about heroes and villains going to high school together, they would've had me hooked just with the phrase "Teenage Ninjak." And now, we're finally getting to see it. After being announced last year as part of Comixology's new line of digital-exclusive titles, the first issue of Daniel Kibblesmith and Derek Charm's Valiant High debuts next week, and you can report early for roll call with a seven page preview.

Exclusive: Valiant Is Ending 'Unity' With An All-Comedy Special
There are a lot of ways to end a comic book series, but when the book is built around superheroic action, that's usually the way it goes out. Big explosions, superhero punch-outs, and at least one dramatic death tend to be the elements in the big final issue formula. But when Unity comes to an end in December with #25, following the world-shattering events of Valiant's big Book of Death crossover, that's not how it's going out. Instead, they're doing an oversized All-Comedy special, featuring Valiant mainstays like Matt Kindt and James Asmus, and bringing in The Daily Show's Elliott Kalan, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert's Daniel Kibblesmith, and the comics writing debut of Steven Universe's Tom Scharpling --- and that's just the tip of Unity's final issue iceberg.
