Press Release:

VALIANT Names ALEJANDRO ARBONA as ASSOCIATE EDITOR

ArbonaValiant is proud to announce that veteran editor Alejandro Arbona has been named to the position of Associate Editor. In his new role, Arbona will contribute to Valiant’s growing slate of monthly titles, including Eternal Warrior, Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps, Quantum and Woody, Shadowman, and more. Arbona is just the latest addition to Valiant’s editorial team, joining Assistant Editor Josh Johns, fellow Associate Editor Jody LeHeup, and Executive Editor Warren Simons.

“Alejandro is an exceptionally talented editor,” said Simons. “I was able to work with him at Marvel for a number of years on some amazing titles, and I can’t tell you how happy I am that he’s joining Valiant. He will make a fantastic addition to the team.”

A five-year veteran of Marvel editorial, Arbona edited a host of critically lauded titles during his tenure, including Invincible Iron Man, Osborn: Evil Incarcerated, Red Skull: Incarnate, Legion of Monsters, and more. Most recently, Arbona completed editorial duties on Casanova by Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá, and Fábio Moon; and Sacrifice, the best-selling, self-published series by Sam Humphries and Dalton Rose.

“Valiant blew me away last year, and I had high expectations to begin with,” said Arbona. “When you combine the familiarity of these characters with such fresh new ideas and approaches, and such a crackerjack team of writers, artists, and editors overseeing it all, the potential really is unlimited. And I’m over the moon I get to re-join forces with my mentor, Warren Simons, and take on an entirely new world of great stories.”

“There has been a tremendous response to our books from all sides, and we’re very fortunate to have strong sales and great reviews across the board. We have several new titles in the works with Quantum and Woody hitting this Wednesday, and Eternal Warrior and more special surprises coming later in the year,” added Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “We plan to expand ever further over the next 12 months and Alejandro was the natural choice to help us grow. He’s an incredibly talented editor with a great body of work behind him, and we’re excited and enthused to welcome him to the Valiant family.”

Press Release:

VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT AND RITTENHOUSE ARCHIVES JOIN FORCES

Newly Re-Launched Comic Book Company Strikes Trading Card Licensing Deal

ValiantNew York, NY (November 28, 2012) – Valiant Entertainment has teamed up with long-established collectibles company Rittenhouse Archives to create trading card series and collectors’ albums for the Valiant Universe, which includes beloved comic book characters X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Shadowman, Harbinger, Rai, H.A.R.D. Corps, Archer & Armstrong, Ninjak, and Armorines. The cards and albums are planned to launch in the US and Canada, at Comic Con San Diego, in 2013.
“All of us at Rittenhouse are extremely excited to add Valiant Comics to our distinguished list of evergreen properties,” said Rittenhouse President Steve Charendoff. “Valiant has rapidly returned to its rightful place among the top publishers of comics today, and, in a world that increasingly craves quality super-hero stories and characters in all forms of media, its future prospects couldn’t be brighter.”
Rittenhouse Archives, Ltd. is a leading producer of science fiction, fantasy and comic book trading cards.  Rittenhouse currently produces trading cards for James Bond, Star Trek, Marvel Comics, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Spartacus, Falling Skies, Warehouse 13 and other top properties.
“We are proud to partner with Rittenhouse Archive as one of the leaders in this category,” said Valiant Entertainment CEO Jason Kothari.  “The creative force applied to Valiant’s fan favorite comic books is being combined with Rittenhouse’s complementary talents to develop and implement state of the art cards and collectibles – together, we have already identified concepts not yet seen that will be truly exciting for Valiant fans and help bring in a host of new fans.”
Valiant previously released four hugely successful trading card series in the 1990’s including three with Upper Deck and one with Comic Images. The deal launches a three-year commitment between the companies.
Valiant Entertainment is one of the leading comic character-based entertainment companies in the world that owns and controls a library of 1,500 characters. Since their creation in 1989, Valiant characters have sold 80 million comic books, been the basis of a number of video game franchises and a slate of major motion pictures are in development.  In 2012, Valiant relaunched print and digital comic books based on a number of its most popular properties, such as X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong and Shadowman.  These new issues garnered rave reviews and are consistently the best-selling independent comic book titles in the industry.
