Valiant 2012 FCBD Reveals

The announced Valiant Comics line up to this point now includes, X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Bloodshot, Archer and Armstrong, and the two newly announced Rai and Eternal Warrior (!). Rai will debut in Spring 2013 and Eternal Warrior bows in Winter 2012. I can't tell you how exciting this news is. Valiant Entertainment wouldn't green light two more books if expectations weren't high, and rightly so. This might just turn out to be the best time to re-launch one of the most loved superhero universes with Marvel's The Avengers' popularity driving interest in superheros and comic books in general. Personally, Eternal Warrior is my all time favorite Valiant hero. I cannot wait for his return. He might have already shown up in the Valiant U though. Check this out.
As if the announcement of the return of Rai and Gilead Abrams wasn't enough, Valiant 2012 FCBD also treated its readers to interviews with Joshua Dysart, Duane Swierczynski, Fred Van Lente, and Robert Venditti as well as sneak previews of X-O Manowar #1 and Harbinger #1. Also included were a beautiful Valiant Universe Pin-Up, a Valiant 2012 Summer Checklist, preview images of The Eternal Warrior and Rai, and a sneak peak at Bloodshot #1's script.
So while I'll always proudly "Make Mine Marvel," I must now declare "Verily Valiant!" (Now if Valiant Entertainment would just adopt their biggest fan's triumphant battle cry-I'd be the happiest Valiant fan in the universe!)
