Harbinger Wars #2
Sunday, April 14, 2013
One of my favorite teasers that Valiant released was this 'interactive' teaser that announced the Shadowman series:
The teaser seems all black until you look a little more carefully and see Shadowman come out of the darkeness!! Check out the inverted version:
Valiant has some proved that they are capable of stellar design work. One of the best examples is the teasers they use to build excitement for their events. You can check out the Summer of Valiant 2012 Teasers here. But for now, feast your eyes on one of my favorite covers from the new Valiant, the cover to X-O Manowar #5 and the start of the Enter: Ninjak arc.
X-O Manowar #5 "Enter: Ninjak"
It should also be noted that this was the new Valiant's first crossover. Unless, of course, you count that Eternal Warrior cameo in X-O Manowar #1.
Valiant has exhibited some incredible design work (they went out and got Rian Hughes to design their covers and probably these too) and I'm going to showcase a little bit of that here with the four Summer of Valiant 2012 teasers they released to announce the launch titles they returned with.
