SWEET AS: Valiant Comics' Full January 2014 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. With that in mind, here are the 'Sweet As' solicitations for Valiant Comics come January 2014:


Valiant sure has one hell of a talent scout! Adding David Daredevil / Kabuki / 'Anything-you-want-to-look-hot' Mack to their stable means, if this is a tease for Mack working on an ongoing Rai shortly, well, I'll happy-dance my way to the end of the year!

Valiant says: All-new arc, all-new jumping-on point! Valiant's immortal champion builds a bridge to... 4001A.D.!

The future has arrived. Two thousand years from today, the planet has been transformed by science, technology...and war. The centuries have not been kind to the Earth's own undying warrior -- but a battle that could change everything is just beginning right here in 21st century. A new vision of the Valiant Universe that is to come and define a brand new era for heroes past, present and future.

  1. Wow! Valiant's really hitting it out of the park lately huh? Good for them, as another alternative to the big two is always welcome.
