THE VALIANT #1: OUT DECEMBER 10!

A battle ten millennia in the making...
Valiant Entertainment is proud to present the first look inside THE VALIANT #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new prestige format four-issue limited series beginning in December from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) and Matt Kindt (RAI, UNITY, Mind MGMT), and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!
An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

IN MEMORY OF ROB CHARPENTIER

This past week Rob Charpentier, the owner of my local comic book store in Toronto's east end, passed away after a battle with cancer. Rob will be missed by all the loyal patrons and friends at his shop Comics And More at Greenwood and Danforth.

When I first moved from the west end to the east end about seven years ago, I felt pretty displaced and Rob and his store were my anchor. It was great to not only have a comic shop in my new neighbourhood, but to have a really good comic shop with an owner who was willing to take chances on the work of newcomers. At the time I had very little published material under my belt, but Rob was always a very great supporter, making sure to order all off my books and promote them in the store.

Over the years, I got to know Rob better, visiting at least twice a week. Rob was always the first to  what new DC projects I'd be doing, based on the stacks of "reference material" I'd come in and buy.

I was saddened to learn about Rob's illness a couple months back. He was unable to work at the store anymore, but continued reading. One of his fears near the end was not getting a chance to see the end of Grant Morrison's long anticipated Multiversity project. (It should be noted that when I reached out to DC Comics about this they helped connect Grant with Rob. Grant spent nearly an hour talking to Rob on the phone in his hospital room. DC and Grant's kindness was not lost on Rob or his friends at the store, and was a real bright spot for Rob near the end).

Rob was a great guy, always full of opinions on the state of comics, but also always willing to support new ideas and new voices in the medium. His death leaves a big hole in our neighbourhood. Rob will be truly missed.
