This new project is the first from Valiant's new division, Valiant Digital.The plan of the new branch of the New York-based publisher is to foster original content in live-action, animation, and emerging media.
“With major projects in film, television, and gaming already well underway, Valiant Digital is the next strategic evolution of Valiant’s long-term plan to expand the ranks of its already sizable fanbase around the world,” said Valiant Chief Operating Officer Gavin Cuneo. "In years past, it wasn’t uncommon for comic book publishers to prime new fans by expanding into Saturday morning animation or short-form programming. Today, that demographic has largely migrated online. With the launch of Valiant Digital and, soon, Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe, Valiant will become the first major comic book publisher to create original, short-form content for the digital arena – and, with it, introduce our characters to one of the most engaged and passionate communities anywhere.”
