Valiant to hit C2E2 With a Vengeance

David Vandervliet 04/10/2012 ZDONOTUSE

 It’s that time of year again.

Con season is under way, and with WonderCon and ECCC behind us, the next big thing is Chicago’s premier pop culture event, C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo!

What makes this con different from its recent counterparts is the return of 90’s giant Valiant Comics to the convention scene!

The gang at Valiant have been busy preparing for the return of some of  the best comics in the past twenty years, so you will forgive them not being at any shows up until now. But with X-O Manowar hitting shelves in just three weeks, and the rest of the Valiant Universe making its return soon after, things are really ramping up for the Summer of Valiant as an additional four titles make their debuts.

Valiant Comics C2E2After May’s X-O Manowar,  Harbinger will debut on June 6th. Bloodshot follows in July and Archer & Armstrong arrives in stores this August.

What comes after that?  Well you’ll probably have to drop by the Valiant Comics: Inside the new Number 1s panel at C2E2  on Saturday, April 14th at 4:15 PM to find out! And be sure to check below for the entirety of Valiant’s schedule for the conventions, including signings with X-O Manowar writer Robert Venditti, portfolio reviews for artists with editor Warren Simons and the C2E2 exclusive Valiant Comics Summer Preview, which will be available for free at the Valiant Booth (#411) while supplies last!
