The Summer of Valiant

It was almost two months ago that Valiant Entertainment announced their relaunch of X-O Manowar, written by me and with art by Cary Nord.  Since then, there have been a slew of additional announcements, culminating with last week’s series of “Summer of Valiant” teaser images revealing the three remaining titles to be relaunched, as well as the creative teams who will be bringing them back.  USA Today handled the Friday wrap-up, recapping the week’s announcements and compiling all of the teaser images and preview pages.

Interviewers have asked what drew me to the project, given that the majority of my previous work has been creator-owned.  There are several reasons, but one of the biggest was the opportunity to work on a book that existed as part of a larger publishing universe.  Writing can be a solitary endeavor by necessity, and I wanted to change things up a little.  That isn’t to say I won’t continue to do creator-owned work—I have several of those projects in the pipeline, too—but I look forward to working with other writers as we plan the ways our individual books will impact the Valiant Universe as a whole.

The list of Valiant’s new writers is below.  I’m humbled to be part of team that is so rich in talent and experience (click the links to learn more about each writer):

Joshua Dysart (writing Harbinger)

Duane Swierczynski (writing Bloodshot)

Fred Van Lente (writing Archer & Armstrong)
