Valiant

If ever there was a studio that has emerged to rival the big two in the comic book industry, it has to be Valiant Entertainment. The past few years has reinvigorated the superstars of that universe, resulting in some of the freshest and coolest new comic books around. 2017 has already been a solid year for Valiant Entertainment, but much like the company has done so since their resurrection, they’re planning to end the year with a bang. Here’s a look at what Valiant has planned for the rest of 2017.

That is, unless Rome’s warrior-detective Antonius Axia can save the day.
