Valiant Headed to ALA 2017 Annual Conference & Exhibition

From Thursday, June 22nd to Tuesday, June 27th, Valiant is joining the ALA 2017 Annual Conference & Exhibition. You can find them at booth #1118 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. 

Join Valiant inside   for a fun-filled, universe-spanning introduction to your new favorite superheroes and comic book epics with a selection of trade paperbacks for critically acclaimed and award-winning titles including BLOODSHOT REBORN, BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE, FAITH, HARBINGER RENEGADE, NINJAK, QUANTUM & WOODY, RAPTURE, SAVAGE and many more!

Then: Travel to the farthest edges of the galaxy with Valiant’s record breaking, cosmos-crushing debut of the year in X-O MANOWAR (2017) VOL.1: SOLDIER TPB – the FIRST VOLUME of the EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, NINJAK, Mind MGMT) and a rotating cast of powerhouse artists – including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER, BLOODSHOT REBORN), Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, BLOODSHOT U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (RAI, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN ) – that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

Critics and fans everywhere are hailing Valiant’s star-smashing debut as the runaway hit of the year! Now, at ALA 2017 Annual Conference & Exhibition, experience the interstellar epic for yourself…and see why X-O MANOWAR (2017) VOL. 1: SOLDIER TPB is the comic to beat in 2017!
