“BODIES IN MOTION TEND TO STAY IN MOTION…”

Teen future-cop DaYoung Johansson hits 1980s NYC like a meteor. People can’t get enough of the Rocket Girl: she’s fighting crime, saving citizens, and causing a sensation. But she’s also trying to right a wrong in a mystery so deep it could change the future forever. There’s a lot more going on here than anyone knows about — and it might be more than the 15-year-old super detective can handle.

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #16 from the all-star creative team of co-writers Christos Gage (Superior Spider-Man) and Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars) and artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor)!

H.A.R.D. Corps has just experienced its first fatality, Bloodshot is severely weakened, and the new rookies are a mess. It would be suicide to take on Toyo Harada and the combined might of the Harbinger Foundation now…so that’s exactly what Bloodshot and his new team of paramilitary superhumans are going to do.

Press Release

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #15 – the next time-walking, history-smashing chapter of “Sect Civil War” by New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans!WARNING: This is no longer a (FINGER QUOTES) “fun” comic. Now that the Sect Civil War has begun, it is now a (FINGER QUOTES) “grim” and (FINGER QUOTES) “gritty” work of (REAL QUOTES) “sequential literature” with blood and headshots and naughty words (like “H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS”) and if you squint real hard at the backgrounds, maybe boobies.

Protectors, Inc.: Heroes in a world without super-powered bad guys. Heroes with corporate sponsors and far too polite rivalries and sporting franchises. Heroes without anything or anyone to fight…until one of them is murdered in ways that could only have been accomplished by someone with equal powers.

Solving the mystery falls to Lieutenant Detective John Riley, an ordinary man whose investigation takes him into a strange and dangerous world light years beyond his abilities to understand and very likely far beyond his capacity to survive. The trail leads to a fifty-year-old secret that could threaten the very existence of Protectors, Inc., an impossible love affair, and a serial killer whose work is not yet finished.
