“Fan support for Valiant’s first RPG at DriveThruComics.com’s sister site, DriveThruRPG.com, has been huge! In conjunction with Catalyst Game Lab’s launch of the Valiant Universe RPG, we’re proud to offer our a complete selection of comics from Valiant’s award-winning library to DriveThruComics.com’s passionate fans,” said Russell A. Brown, President of Consumer Products, Promotions, and Ad Sales for Valiant Entertainment.
“Valiant has some of the most exciting and entertaining comics on the market today,” said Matt M. McElroy, Director of Publishing for DriveThruComics.com. “Several members of the DriveThruComics crew were already huge fans of the Valiant characters and creators, so we couldn’t be more thrilled to have these books available on our site.”
Established in 1989, Valiant has sold over 80 million comic books, and today its characters continue to be forged in publishing, licensing, film, video games, and beyond. Since its summer 2012 publishing relaunch, Valiant has returned to the fore as one of the most commercially and critically successful independent publishers in the industry today with an initial slate of titles that included X-O Manowar by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord; Harbinger by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans; and Archer & Armstrong by the New York Times best-selling creative team of writer Fred Van Lente and artist Clayton Henry.
After multiple awards and nominations, including a 2012 Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year, Valiant ventured even farther in 2013 with the debut of its first crossover event, Harbinger Wars, and the release of Unity #1 by writer Matt Kindt and artist Doug Braithwaite – the year’s highest charting debut issue from a non-premier publisher with sales in excess of 70,000 copies. This May, Valiant followed up with “Valiant First” – an all-new line of titles led by the smash-hit ongoing series, Rai, and its biggest crossover event to date, Armor Hunters. Most recently, on the heels of 16 nominations at this year’s Harvey Awards, the publisher has announced The Valiant – a prestige format mini-series from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt with art by Eisner Award winner Paolo Rivera.
