Valiant Unveils Valiant Next Variant Covers


The difference between "Valiant" and "Variant" is one letter. The difference in the six upcoming Valiant Next variant covers is significantly more, even though each cover looks just as awesome as the next. The reason for that awesomeness is because Valiant paired graphic designer Tom Muller with their artists for an all-star celebration of the initiative. Starting on January 21 with Ivar, Timewalker #1, each Valiant Next cover will boast a special variant cover born from the aforementioned partnership.

"Tom is one of the most talented designers working in the industry today, and his first collaboration as a member of the Valiant Next team is nothing short of an absolute knockout," said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. "Each series in the Valiant Next line-up is the product of hard work and vision by some the finest creators working today, and Tom's contributions – combined with the stellar artwork of Paolo Rivera, Mico Suayan, Trevor Hairsine, and Clayton Henry – will ensure that these titles practically leap off the shelf of your local comic shop."

Ivar, Timewalker #1 [OCT148442] pairs Muller with Clayton Henry and The Valiant #2 [OCT148443] pairs Muller with Paolo Rivera and hits stores January 21. Imperium #1 [DEC141704, February 4], Divinity #1 [DEC141709, February 11] and Ninjak #1 [JAN151641, March 11] pairs Muller with Trevor Hairsine. Finally, Bloodshot Reborn #1 pairs Muller with Mico Suayan and hits stores April 15. Supplies of each Valiant Next variant cover will be strictly limited. Contact your local comic book retailer for information on how to pre-order yours today.
