Valiant And Comixology Announce Exclusive Digital Distribution Agreement
Via press release
Set for a much anticipated summer 2012 relaunch, Valiant will soon return with four new series, all of which will debut as same-day as print digital releases on comiXology — X-O Manowar #1 on sale today, Harbinger #1 on June 6th, Bloodshot #1 on July 11th, and Archer & Armstrong #1 on August 8th.
- X-O Manowar (1992) #0-6 by Jim Shooter, Bob Layton, Barry Windsor-Smith & Joe Quesada
- Harbinger (1992) #0-6 by Jim Shooter & David Lapham
- Bloodshot (1993) #0-4 by Kevin VanHook & Don Perlin
“For the first time, through comiXology’s platform, Valiant Comics will be available anywhere in the world,” said Valiant CEO Jason Kothari. “With Valiant’s return now in full effect with today’s release of X-O Manowar #1, the timing couldn’t be better to remind people once again of the incredible characters and stories that made Valiant a household name.”
As part of the exclusive agreement, Valiant Entertainment titles will also be available through comiXology’s Digital Retailer Storefront program. This enables retailers to sell Valiant’s digital comics through their own website while comic book fans can purchase digital comics from their local comic store’s digital storefront with a portion of each purchase going directly to the retailer.
Future digital releases on comiXology will delve deeper into the Valiant catalog, and feature classic series including Archer & Armstrong, Rai, Ninjak, Shadowman, Eternal Warrior, and Quantum & Woody.
In the meantime, today fans everywhere can now add all-new Valiant material to their digital comics libraries with X-O Manowar #1, from writer Robert Venditti and artist Cary Nord, available now on the Comics by comiXology platform — available on iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire and the Web.
