Valiant Brings One of Their Fan-Favorite Characters to

The Forefront of Her Own Book With

FAITH #1

 

You guys get these newsletters every week, and you all know what to expect as the headlining focus of these things, it's usually something big from Marvel or DC Comics. Well, this week, we've got something MUCH more important hitting our shelves that we feel everyone should know about. As you all know, we tend to give Valiant a bit of a push at the end of the Newsletters. They're a company we desperately want to get behind, as their comics and stories are top-notch, with great writers and artists at the helm of them, and critical acclaim from critics and fans alike. But, as of late, Marvel's been making big waves, so we haven't been able to give these guys the proper shine they deserve.

This week, Valiant is putting out, possibly, one of the most highly-anticipated indie titles in a while, that being FAITH #1. Faith will be a four issue mini-series focusing on one of Valiant's few TRUE superheroes in their universe, Faith Herbert, or as she would prefer to be called, ZEPHYR. This character has resonated with fans everywhere, becoming one of Valiant's biggest surprise hit characters. She, herself, is a fangirl who wanted nothing more than to become a superhero. She got that wish in the pages of Harbinger when she is brought into the Harbinger foundation and is granted her psiot abilities.

In a world full of anti-heroes, and morally ambiguous characters, Faith is one of the few real good guys in the Valiant Universe.

Faith Herbert, the psionically gifted "psiot" known as Zephyr, has been a neglected child, a pawn of the Harbinger Foundation, and a washout with the government superteam called Unity. But now she's taking control of her life and becoming the hero she's always known she can be - complete with a secret identity, a codename, and a cover assignment that routinely throws her into harm's way! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought as she uncovers a deep-rooted alien conspiracy that could destroy human civilization from the inside out! Is Faith out of her depth... Or in for her biggest adventure yet? Rising star Jody Houser (Orphan Black) and red-hot artist Francis Portela (Green Lantern) pilot a new chapter for Valiant's high-flying hero right here in her first-ever limited series!

This first issue has become a much bigger deal than anyone expected, with it ALREADY being sold out upon initial orders! This first issue sold out so quickly that when we get in the first print copies, we will also be getting the second prints, as well.

We are really excited for this series to finally hit our shelves, and for everyone to try it out! Valiant puts out such top-notch material, we don't want ANYONE to miss out on their work.

Marvel's ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT Universe Takes in

OLD MAN LOGAN!

Wolverine may be gone but, by popular demand, Marvel has decided to continue the adventures of Old Man Logan. The twist? He's trapped in a world he once helped destroy...!

STK694185

Fifty years from now, Logan -- the man who no longer calls himself Wolverine -- will have endured many atrocities: The Marvel Universe's villains will have banded together and rid the world of its heroes. Logan's closest friend, Hawkeye, will have been murdered in cold blood right before his eyes. And driven mad by the same radiation that gave him his superhuman strength, Bruce Banner will have fathered a family of hillbilly Hulks...that eventually went on to slaughter Logan's wife and two children. But now, in the present, Old Man Logan wakes up to discover himself in a world before these atrocities, before the Wasteland. And he's going to seize this opportunity and change history to ensure that his future never comes to pass...

This monumental first issue, by acclaimed artist Jeff Lemire, and artist Andrea Sorrentino, comes with some great variant covers you're gonna want to get your hands on! We can all agree that Old Man Logan is bound to be one of Marvel's most popular characters in their All-New, All-Different relaunch!

DC Comics Rolls Out A New Six-Issue Mini-Series To Get

Fans Ready for SUICIDE SQUAD with

SUICIDE SQUAD: MOST WANTED - DEADSHOT & KATANA

STK694069

Two of the stars of next year's highly anticipated action movie break out in their own solo adventures in this extra-sized, 6-issue miniseries!
First, in a story by Brian Buccellato, Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend, Deadshot is on the run, taking on a series of new contracts, and re-establishing himself as the world's most deadly marksman. But things are about to get complicated for Floyd Lawton when a figure from his past threatens to expose a dark secret...and Deadshot gets word of his next target: Lex Luthor!
Then, writer Mike W. Barr returns to the character he co-created in "Katana, Cult of the Kobra," with art by Diogenes Neves. Katana needs to know more about Soultaker's origin if she's going to have any hope of controlling the sword instead of falling under its influence. Dr. Helga Jace, a Markovian astrophysicist, may be able to shed some light-but before Katana can get the info, Kobra's forces attack!

 

INDIE SPOTLIGHT!

(W) Jeff Lemire (A/CA) Lewis LaRosa

 

ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! WHO OR WHAT IS... "THE ANALOG MAN"?
Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland and the once unstoppable killing machine known as BLOODSHOT has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot's taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life - Magic - and protecting a group of stragglers who've weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement's survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Universe! Blockbuster artist Lewis LaRosa joins New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire for a gasoline-soaked storyline two years in the making right here for "THE ANALOG MAN"!

BEHOLD THE MODERN MONSTROSITY.
X-Men Legacy writer SIMON SPURRIER and superstar artist RYAN KELLY present fiends, fragility, and firepower in an all-new series, mixing the hard-boiled militaria of Jarhead with the dark folklore of Pan's Labyrinth. Includes an unprecedented use of multiple colorists (MATT WILSON, LEE LOUGHRIDGE, & NICK FILARDI) to define the story's threads, and an incredible variant cover by Eisner Award winner CAMERON STEWART. This is not the tale of a lesbian werewolf who goes to war. Except it kind of is.
