HOMELESS NINJA HEROINE RETURNS IN STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY


An all-new STREET ANGEL story arrives this Halloween

Jesse "Street Angel" Sanchez knows the pressure of being the girl who always saves the day. It’s just who she is. But when she and her friends find a powerful alien artifact, they learn that being a superhero is not all fun and games. Is this an extraterrestrial plot to destroy their middle school friendship or a gift from above that Jesse can pawn for a hot dog?

“Although Street Angel is the toughest superhero ever, her stories don't look like traditional superhero comics,” said Rugg. “In STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY, we finally see Jesse with Angel City's other champions—and we see how she responds when her role in her circle of friends is threatened. It's an exciting, new take on the superhero genre, guaranteed to shake up the status quo like Watchmen and Dark Knight did generations ago.”

This October, Eisner Award-winner Jim Rugg (The PLAIN Janes, Afrodisiac), Brian Maruca (Afrodisiac), and Image Comics present the biggest, most epic STREET ANGEL yarn yet.

STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0553-3) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, October 25th and bookstores Tuesday, October 31st. 

STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY is available for preorder via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.

Valiant Joins Local Comic Shop Day® 2017 with SECRET WEAPONS DELUXE EDITION OVERSIZED HC


Award-Winning Publisher Celebrates Local Comic Shops with Exclusive Collection of the Year’s Best-Selling Independent Limited Series

Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce that it will be supporting Local Comic Shop Day® 2017 on November 18th, 2017 with a special, limited-edition release of the SECRET WEAPONS DELUXE EDITION OVERSIZED HC – the first oversized hardcover collection of the year’s best-selling independent limited series from Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (ARRIVAL) and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Patricia Martin (NINJAK) – to participating retailers!

Collecting SECRET WEAPONS #1-4 with a cover by multiple Eisner Award nominee David Mack (Fight Club 2) and exclusive to Local Comic Shop Day 2017, this oversized hardcover collection of Valiant’s sold-out, critically acclaimed series will not be available for sale anywhere else, and arrives weeks before the SECRET WEAPONS TPB arrives in stores on December 13th.

Find out why Valiant has become the most critically acclaimed publisher in comics today with this can’t-miss presentation of the year’s most celebrated new series:

The SECRET WEAPONS DELUXE OVERSIZED HC will feature a beautifully presented, deluxe repackaging of the critically lauded series, and feature more than 20 pages of bonus material including character designs, process art, and more that won’t be found anywhere else! Eric Heisserer – the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter of ARRIVAL and Valiant’s upcoming BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER feature films – joins forces with Harvey Award-nominated visionary Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) here for an all-new Valiant adventure... launching Livewire and an extraordinary new team of heroes into the fight of their lives!

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds... A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow... To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons...in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action...in ways they never could have imagined...

“Comic shops are the heart and soul of the comics industry and play a very crucial role to its continued growth. That’s why we’re proud to continue supporting Local Comic Shop Day’s mission of supporting the brick and mortar storefronts that bring comics to fans nationwide,” said Valiant’s Director of Sales, Atom! Freeman. “Our offering for Local Comic Shop Day 2017 might also be our most ambitious yet with the SECRET WEAPONS DELUXE OVERSIZED HC – a shelf-worthy collection to one of our most successful series to date and one that won’t be available anywhere else. In making this highly collectible item exclusive only to Local Comic Shop Day, it’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the hundreds of retailers who continue to support this industry week after week, Wednesday after Wednesday.”

Valiant’s NINJA-K #1-5 Pre-Order Bundle Expands to Five Action-Packed Issues!


2017’s Explosive New Series Adds All-New Origin Issue from Christos Gage & Juan Jose Ryp – Featuring the Debut of NINJA-G!
Valiant is proud to announce that the publisher’s next essential 
pre-order bundle is getting even bigger! 

Originally solicited with four specially expanded, 40-page issues, Valiant can now reveal that NINJA-K #1-5 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE has grown to include a previously unannounced fifth issue, February’s NINJA-K #4, that will include the origin and first appearance of Colin King’s lethal predecessor in the Ninja Programme – NINJA-G – as told by red-hot writer Christos Gage (Amazing Spider-Man) and blockbuster artist Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA)!

At the height of 1970s Britain, MI-6’s covert Ninja Programme has just activated its first female agent: NINJA-G! As a financial crisis grips the nation and anarchy brews in the streets, can MI-6’s newest ninja recruit counter a steady tide of the double agents, double crosses, and dueling nation states that will take her from the leather-padded corridors of London to the most severe corners of the Soviet Bloc? The life expectancy of a ninja agent is never long…but just how and why are NINJA-G’s missions still impacting Ninjak’s deadly manhunt in the modern day? And could her legacy hold the secret to decoding the murders of the Ninja Programme’s last surviving members – before Colin King is scratched off the list once and for all?

Available only as a pre-order set to fans who reserve the first five issues of the EXPLOSIVE NEW ONGOING SERIES from acclaimed writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and Valiant superstar Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), the NINJA-K #1-5 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE kicks off with a jam-packed 48-page debut and exclusive covers by Eisner Award-nominated artist Tonci Zonjic (Who is Jake Ellis?, Immortal Iron Fist) on each issue – all specifically reserved for fans who pre-order with their local comic shop by the initial order date (IOD) of September 28th, 2017!

Packed with the same trade paperback-style extras and bonus content – including creator commentary, behind– the-scenes looks at the creation of the comics, process character designs and artwork, and first looks at upcoming issues – this pre-order edition will not be offered past the initial order date of September 28th, 2017!

Released monthly from November 2017 through March 2018, each PRE-ORDER EDITION comes packed with trade paperback-style extras and bonus content, including creator commentary, behind–the-scenes looks at the creation of the comics, process character designs and artwork, and first looks at upcoming issues – plus an exclusive cover by renowned artist Tonci Zonjic that can’t be found anywhere else!

It all starts here on November 15th as renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and Valiant’s latest superstar artist, Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), present a stunningly precise jumping-on point leading Ninjak on a manhunt through a cold, calculating world of espionage and international intrigue in search of a killer targeting all “ninja” agents – past and present!

For nearly a century, MI-6, the most elite branch of Britain’s clandestine intelligence service, has honed a ruthlessly effective, top-secret division – THE NINJA PROGRAMME – into one of its nation’s most finely wielded weapons. Tasked as the first and last line of defense for queen and country, this small shadow army of agents and assassins has produced a succession of notable assets, including NINJA-A, the Queen’s silent weapon of World War I; NINJA-E, the globe-trotting secret agent that pulled the Cold War back from the brink of Armageddon; and, most recently, NINJA-K, aka Colin King, a brash but fearless instrument of lethality that has saved the world from madmen and terror at every turn.

Then: This February, red-hot writer Christos Gage (Avengers: The Initiative) and blockbuster artist Juan Jose Ryp (HARBINGER RENEGADE) present a standalone interlude with seismic ramifications for the Ninja Programme’s past and future as NINJA-G steps to the fore for a martial arts melee in the heart of 1970s London, only in NINJA-K #4 – now an essential addition to the NINJA-K #1-5 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE!

Colin King’s new assignment begins on November 15th, only in NINJA-K #1 – featuring covers by Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), rising star Lucas Troya, Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), David Mack (Kabuki), and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT SALVATION)!

SNEAK A PEEK AT IMAGE/SKYBOUND’s NEW SERIES GASOLINA


Creators Sean Mackiewicz and Niko Walter team up with colorist Mat Lopes and letterer Rus Wooton for an all-new crime/horror adventure, GASOLINA, from Image/Skybound Entertainment and reveal interior pages for a sneak peek into the new story.

Fugitives. Rebels. Newlyweds. GASOLINA follows Amalia and Randy on their journey south from El Norte. They have played many roles in order to survive, but now, they must become unlikely leaders in the fight against a new cartel who uses inhuman tactics to ignite the most monstrous war Mexico—and the world—has ever seen.

“Skybound is the most creatively stimulating environment I’ve ever experienced, so in creating this comic with Niko Walter, I’m putting to use everything I’ve learned from all the talented creators I’ve worked with… and also Robert Kirkman,” said Mackiewicz. “I can’t imagine publishing my first comic anywhere but at Image/Skybound.”

Everything burns in this new series where love and devotion can only be measured in fire and blood.

GASOLINA #1 Cover A and GASOLINA #1 cover B by Felici will be available in stores on Wednesday, September 20th.
