Valiant Comics PlusFans of Valiant Entertainment will now be able to purchase their favourite titles like X-O Manowar, Harbinger and Bloodshot from iVerse Media’s Comics Plus app and affiliated platforms. Effective immediately, iVerse will offer Valiant’s monthly comics titles day-and-date via the ComicsPlus app, and will soon host Valiant’s complete catalog of comics and collections.

Valiant’s first Guided View Native digital comic, Unity 8-bit Adventure, sees their new super hero team ‘Unity’ go old school in an 8-bit video game inspired adventure. But does this old school approach take away from the 21st century sophistication of Guided View?

Just when we couldn’t get more excited about Valiant’s awesome new Unity series they go and release their first ever Guided View Native comic exclusively on ComiXology – and what’s even better, is that it’s done in their awesome 8-Bit Style! Valiant’s Guided View Native 8-bit Unity #1 digital comic is available on ComiXology this Wednesday.

This autumn, the greatest heroes of the Valiant Universe are taking Europe by storm in a partnership with Panini, Europe’s leading publisher of comics and graphic novels. A new line of foreign language digital comics will be available via ComiXology Europe and Amazon.it amongst others that will see Valiant’s smash hit monthly series like X-O Manowar and Archer & Armstrong into French and Italian for the very first time.

XOmanowar001X-O Manowar is one of those cult books that has floated around the periphery for years but never quite managed to crack the big time, that is until now. Launched back in the early 90s this tale of Alric the Visigoth and his intergalactic space armour was created by Marvel legend Jim Shooter, Bob Layton and Jon Hartz and featured early work from the like Joe Quesada (on X-O #0). An instant cult favourite it would spawn crossovers with the fledgling Image universe and even fellow metal helmet wearer, Marvel‘s Iron Man, thanks to an appearance in a video game as a result of Valiant’s sale to Acclaim Entertainment. Despite fervent fan support it was very much a product of it’s time and so faded into the mists along with a raft of other 90s superheros, that is until 2012 when X-O, along with the entire cast of other Valiant classics, such as Archer & Armstrong and Bloodshot, were resurrected under the new Valiant Entertainment banner with a new rebooted origin. Under the guidance of Robert Venditti (creator of The Surrogates for Top Shelf) and artist Cary Nord, the world of Alric the Visigoth has been recreated and revitalised for a new 21st century audience and with it they have created one of the best pure superhero books on the newsstand.
