Karl Bollers has joined Valiant Entertainment as an editor, working on titles such as X-O Manowar, Bloodshot Salvation, Ninja-K, Quantum and Woody!, and Harbinger Wars 2. Bollers will report to Valiant's Editor-In-Chief Warren Simons.
"I'm honored to join the crew here at Valiant and am greatly looking forward to working with such a talented group of comic creators, including Matt Kindt, Dougie Braithwaite, Christos Gage, Jeff Lemire, Stephen Segovia, and more. Valiant's approach to crafting comics, one that emphasizes quality over quantity and a dedication to audience expansion, fits lockstep with my own creative philosophy, and I'd like to thank Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons and Publisher Fred Pierce for allowing me the incredible opportunity to play in this sandbox of fresh and diverse characters."
Bollers is a long-time editor, writer, and colorist in comic books, and wrote a recent issue of Archer & Armstrong for Simons at Valiant. Bollers also worked as an assistant editor at Marvel from 1992 to 1996.
"Valiant is fortunate to have one of the most passionate and driven collections of editorial talent working anywhere in the industry today, and Karl's skills as an editor and storyteller have already made him a wonderful addition to the team," said Simons. "I've had the pleasure of knowing Karl for more than a decade and know that his instincts and experience will make him an immeasurable asset to our creators, our staff, and the Valiant Universe as a whole as we move forward to begin to plan for new and exciting adventures in 2018 and beyond."
