Valiant Entertainment has announced six new upcoming titles heading through 2015 for its “Valiant Next” initiative, including new books focusing on Ninjak, Timewalker, Bloodshot and more. The initiative begins in December with Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt & Paolo Rivera’s “The Valiant” miniseries, which focuses on Eternal Warrior, Geomancer and Bloodshot.
The rest of the “Valiant Next” lineup will likely be familiar to those following the Valiant line since its 2012 relaunch, with many familiar writers and artists launching new books. The current lineup for 2014 is as follows:
- “Ivar, Timewalker” by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry launching in January.
- “Divinity,” a four issue miniseries by Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine launching in February
- “Imperium” by Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite launching in February
- “Ninjak” by Matt Kindt and Clay Mann launching in March.
- “Bloodshot Reborn” by Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan launching in April.
“Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt and Paolo Rivera are delivering an absolute monster of a book withÂ ‘The Valiant’Â and it’s the perfect title to lead offÂ ‘Valiant Next’,” said Valiant Editor-In-Chief Warren Simons via press release. “This is our most ambitious initiative yet, and everyone’s bringing their A-game. The creative team of ‘Archer & Armstrong’ reuniting to launchÂ ‘Ivar, Timewalker.’ Clay Mann onÂ ‘Ninjak’Â — his first ongoing series at Valiant. Mico Suayan tearing it up with Jeff Lemire onÂ ‘Bloodshot Reborn’. Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite together for the first time for the devastating events of ‘Imperium’. Not to mention the introduction of an all-new, all-powerful force inÂ ‘Divinity’Â from the minds of Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine. It’s a kick-ass time to be a Valiant fan.”
