Florida Man Is The Character Find of 2016 In 'A&A' #9
With all apologies to our readers in the Sunshine State --- and let's be real here, you know this better than the rest of us --- every headline that comes out of Florida paints a picture of a sunny, tourist-friendly peninsula that also seems to exist in a combination of Mad Max times and The Pu…
'Harbinger Renegade' Loses A Plural But Gains A Villain
In an age of the direct market and solicitation copy available three months ahead of time, it's hard to truly pull a swerve on comic readers like publishers used to, but Valiant Entertainment may have pulled it off.

While fans have been waiting for Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson's new…
A First Look At 'Faith' #5 Guest Starring Hillary Clinton
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 …
Space Meditation Can Be Useful In 'Harbinger: Renegades' #1
I've written before --- pretty recently, in fact --- about how one of Valiant's greatest strengths as a company is how well it can build its titles around high concept stories that make it easy for new readers to jump on. So with that in mind, when writer Rafer Roberts describes his upcomi…
Roberts And Robertson Launch 'Harbinger Renegades' In November
Life in the Valiant universe is tough. I mean, not only do you have alien invaders and the unkillable soldiers of Project Rising Spirit to worry about, and not only are your chances pretty slim of actually getting to hang out with Ninjak, but they're also going through a sudden surge of super-p…
Tag Along On Archer And Faith's First Date In 'A&A' #5
If you're a fan of Valiant's Faith --- and you should be, she's great --- then you're in for a pretty good time next Wednesday. Not only does July 20 see the release of the all-new Faith ongoing series from Jody Houser, Pere Perez, Marguerite Sauvage and Colleen Doran, which pick…
Preview: The Living Fear the Dead in '4001 A.D.:Shadowman #1'
The Valiant Universe of 1,985 years in the future is an ever-more fascinating place. That's clearer than ever in 4001 A.D.: Shadowman #1, written by Jody Houser and Rafer Roberts, with art by Robert Gill and colors by Michael Spicer. It seems that there's a city on this future Earth occupi…
Get Your First Look At Clowntown In 'A&A' #6
Here's the thing about unlettered preview pages: They are, by their nature, incomplete, so you're only really getting half of the story. Still, since comics are first and foremost a visual medium, you can still sort of follow along with sequential art. Unless, of course, you're readin…
Archer & Armstrong Are Heading To Clowntown In 'A&A' #6
Ever since their return in 2012, Archer and Armstrong have had a series of adventures that I think it's fair to describe as "increasingly weird." They've fought a cult made up of the super-rich, they've fought a different cult that worships the number zero, they've foll…
Journey To The Center Of The Satchel In 'A&A' #2 [Preview]
If you carry around a bag in your day-to-day life --- or heck, even a wallet --- then you already know how cluttered those things can get. You just dump things in there, and when it's time to clear it all out, you wind up buried under a torrent of movie tickets, dead pens and receipts. If, howe…
