Comic Review: THE VALIANT #2 (of 4) [VALIANT NEXT]

I am on a mission to make all the non-comic reading flock members into comic book lovers. Discover how the right combination of art and words can create absolute magic! Plus there are sexy action heroes <G>.


Art & Cover by PAOLO RIVERA
Valiant Next Variant by PAOLO RIVERA & TOM MULLER
Interlocking Variant Cover by JEFF LEMIRE & MATT KINDT

From comic book superstars Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera – the year’s most epic new adventure ratchets up the stakes as Bloodshot is drafted into the eons-old war against mankind’s oldest, darkest enemy!

The Immortal Enemy has crawled out from the black depths of history to destroy this generation’s Geomancer and send Earth back to the Dark Ages! Now…the Eternal Warrior, Ninjak, and Kay McHenry must overcome their worst nightmares before the unlikeliest of white knights rides in to save the day. Will he be enough to battle back the unyielding evil that threatens to plunge the Valiant Universe into the darkness?
$3.99 | 32 pgs. | T+ | VALIANT PRESTIGE | On sale JANUARY 21

Issue #2 in the universe shattering The Valiant [Valiant Next] brings in two more Valiant characters: Ninjak and Bloodshot. I haven't read either of these series, but they are on my must read list now because they are both sexy bad ass action heroes. Check out how Ninjak dispatches the two guards...
The Geomancer, Kay, is running for her life from The Immortal Enemy and guess who comes to the rescue? Bloodshot! I like the way the creators handled the artwork differently for Kay's flashbacks of a book her father read to her when she was young. Seems The Immortal Enemy knows your greatest fear and can become it.
This is a perfect series to pick up for an introduction to some of the more popular Valiant Comic series. If you have never been in a comic book store or know where one is, don't worry. You can get digital comics now and read them on your tablet. Plus the digital versions are cheaper.

ComiXology is a great place to find them (you can also find free comic books to check out too)

Valiant is a leading character-based entertainment company with a library of over 1,500 characters, including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Shadowman, Eternal Warrior, and many more. Established in 1989, Valiant has sold over 80 million comic books, and today its characters continue to be forged in publishing, licensing, film, video games, and beyond.
