Cover by RYAN SOOK

Pullbox Exclusive Variant by MARCOS MARTIN

Variant Cover by ANDREW ROBINSON

QR Voice Variant by TOM FOWLER

Writer James Asmus (Thief of Thieves, Gambit, The End Times of Bram & Ben) and artist Tom Fowler (Venom, Hulk: Season One) punt the world’s worst superhero team headfirst into the Valiant Universe!

Once upon a time, Eric and Woody Henderson were inseparable. Adopted brothers. Best friends. Brilliant minds. Years later, they are estranged siblings, petty rivals, and washed-up failures. But when their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a life-altering scientific accident, Eric and Woody will find themselves with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear costumes and fight crime. Go big or go home, folks! Quantum and Woody are coming! And the action-packed, zeitgeist-shredding exploitation stunt comic you demanded is here at last.

(And, yes, there will be a goat too. Eventually.)

A battle for the lives of Project Rising Spirit’s escaped psiot children is being waged between Toyo Harada, Peter Stancheck’s Renegades and the H.A.R.D.

Something’s in the air – and a new era is unfolding for the weapon – no, the soldier – no, the man known as Bloodshot.

ARCHER & ARMSTRONG VOL. 2: WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR TPB

Written by FRED VAN LENTE

Art & Cover by EMANUELA LUPACCHINO

No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the undying Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he’s a master of strategy and weaponry, an unrelenting force of nature capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now – after years apart – the Eternal Warrior has a new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect. And, like it or not, Valiant’s history-smashing adventure duo are about to feel the brunt of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.

Collecting ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5-9 by New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and critically acclaimed artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor), the second volume of the series that IGN calls "hilarious and action packed" slams into high gear with a savage manhunt straight through the heart of the Valiant Universe.
