SWEET AS: The Full Valiant Comics November 2013 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. With Valiant that's pretty much their whole range. An affordable, concise universe (all comics are $3.99), picking a few highlights and leaving others out is just wrong. Hence why here are their full solicits for November 2013, they really do define the 'Sweet As' grade:

The world's most dangerous man, Toyo Harada, has been struck by the one thing he never thought possible -- fear. Halfway across the globe, a new power threatens to topple modern civilization and, to preempt the cataclysm that is to come, Harada will unite the most lethal, most volatile, most unforgiving team the world has ever known -- Unity. Their mission: defeat the warrior king armed with the universe's most powerful weapon. Kill X-O Manowar!

ARCHER and ARMSTRONG #15
(W) Fred Van Lente (A) Khari Evans
Now that the Sect Civil War has begun, it is now a "grim" and "gritty" work of "sequential literature" with blood and headshots and naughty words and if you squint real hard at the backgrounds, maybe boobies.

The Dark Archer must find his former partner Armstrong so they can reunite to stop the Sect Civil War.

SHADOWMAN #12
(W) Ales Kot, Christopher Sebela and Neil Dvorak (A) Clayton Crain, Mico Suayan And Neil Dvorak
