The Valiant #2 Preview

THE VALIANT #2 PAGE 11. 2014.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Thanks for all the kind words on the first issue of The Valiant! The first printing has sold out at the distributor level, and a second printing will be available in time for the second issue. Speaking of which, here's a lettered preview of the first 5 pages, plus a gallery of covers.

As was bound to happen, I need to take another blog break as I finish up the last couple issues of the series. (I'm halfway through the 3rd issue right now.) I may check in from time to time, but you can usually find me on Twitter with sneak peeks of my drawing board. Thanks again for all the support!

Today is the day! If you've been following this blog for very long, you know how infrequently I have actual comics on the stands. It's downright painful. But today is different! Visit your local comic shop. Buy it on Comixology. Tell your friends! Tell your ex! Tell everybody!

The Valiant #1 (Out Tomorrow!)

THE VALIANT #1 PAGES 16-17. 2014.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 22 × 17″.

A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin... tomorrow.

Everything has led up to this. We've worked our butts off to make this a quality book, and Valiant is matching our efforts with a prestige format. (No ads! How insane is that?) Even if you're not familiar with the Valiant Universe, we've done our best to make sure it's accessible, but action-packed. I hope you'll give it a shot. Here's a preview. Here's a roundup of reviews. Thanks for reading!


THE VALIANT #1 PAGES 10-11. 2014. Digital, 11 × 17″.
