It’s that time of year again.
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.
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!
