Preview: HARBINGER WARS 2: AFTERMATH

HARBINGER WARS 2: AFTERMATH #1 Begins to Rebuild the Valiant Universe with
Matt Kindt & Adam Pollina – In Stores September! 

The Valiant Universe will never be the same!

Valiant is proud to present a first look at the covers for HARBINGER WARS 2: AFTERMATH #1, a blistering standalone epilogue that hits stores on September 26th! As the seismic summer event of 2018 comes to a close, Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, ETERNITY) and legendary artist Adam Pollina (X-Force, SECRET WEAPONS #0) sort through the rubble of the most brutal confrontation ever felt in the Valiant Universe – and discover what lies beyond the bloodshed!

The power’s back online and the fighting is over…but who are the real victors of HARBINGER WARS 2, and what was truly lost in the carnage? For those who survived the terrible onslaught – and who must now witness the devastating aftereffects of their actions – will there ever be peace again?

On September 26th, Matt Kindt and Adam Pollina pick up the pieces of the most consequential clash ever to the country in HARBINGER WARS 2: AFTERMATH #1 – featuring covers by Raúl Allén (SECRET WEAPONS), Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), and Felipe Massafera (Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern)!

Then: On the heels of HARBINGER WARS 2, Valiant’s “BEYOND” initiative launches into 2019 with an all-new slate of groundbreaking series, starting in September with FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1! This fall, uncover the secrets of the Dreamside as Eisner Award-nominated writer extraordinaire Jody Houser (FAITH, Star Wars: Thrawn) and rising star MJ Kim (FAITH’S WINTER WONDERLAND SPECIAL #1) continue the adventures of the high-flying icon Nerdist called “a superhero done right!”

Even before Faith “Zephyr” Herbert gained the power of flight, joined the Harbinger Renegades, and soared through the skies of Los Angeles, deep down she was always a hero at heart. But what’s a hero to do in the face of a foe that exists only in nightmares? Face them head-on, of course! To protect the dreams of her teammate, Animalia, Faith must venture into a fantastical new realm the likes of which the Valiant Universe has never seen… and she’ll need some help from the world’s premiere parapsychologist, Dr. Mirage, to make it back with her subconscious mind still intact!

Once the dust of HARBINGER WARS 2 has settled, BEYOND will round out the end of Valiant’s 2018 publishing schedule and drive forward into the new year with FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 in September; BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 in November; LIVEWIRE #1 in December; and INCURSION #1 in February 2019!

DISNEY honors IDW with BEST NEW LICENSEE AWARD

 

EDITOR’S NOTE:  I can’t let this go without noting how altruistic the Disney organization is being about this . . . giving credit where credit is due, instead of handing it over to Marvel (which is now part of the Disney media conglomerate).  Bravo, Disney!  And suck it, Marvel.

Leading Comic Book Publisher Honored for Star Wars Adventures
Initiative Aimed at a New Generation of Readers


SAN DIEGO, CA (June 13, 2018) – IDW Publishing, a division of IDW Media Holdings, is proud to announce that Disney Publishing Worldwide honored them with their prestigious Best New Licensee Award at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2018.
 
The Best New Licensee Award is given to a new Disney Publishing Worldwide licensee signed in the past year, who created a new format and brought new distribution into the marketplace. In 2017, IDW began publishing an all-ages Star Wars comic, Star Wars Adventures, in addition to their Disney titles. Star Wars Adventureslaunched as a fan favorite in September 2017, and quickly gained notice by the industry; Diamond Comic Distributors acknowledged the title’s sales achievement with two GEM Award nominations in the categories of Best New Comic Book Series and Licensed Comic of the Year.
 
“IDW’s highly-successful Star Wars comics provided a new entry point for early readers into the Star Wars universe,” said Daniel Saeva, Vice President, Licensing, Disney Publishing Worldwide. “We are excited to see the stories that they will introduce to the new generation of Star Wars fans in the coming year.”
 
IDW’s line of Disney comic books and graphic novels launched in 2015 with the continuation of such long-standing series as Walt Disney’s Comics and StoriesMickey MouseDonald Duck, and Uncle Scrooge, and has since expanded to include DuckTalesTangled: The SeriesBig Hero 6: The SeriesStar Wars Adventures, and more. Additional Disney publishing programs from IDW include their line of Artist’s Editions – high-end reproductions of original art by Disney animation legend Don Rosa – as well as hardcover collections of the Donald Duck and Silly Symphonies newspaper comic strips.
 
Jeff Webber, Head of Rights Management at IDW Publishing, was on-hand at Bologna Children’s Book Fair to accept the award.

Sneak Peek: BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME coming July 25

First Look: BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #1 – Peter Milligan & Robert Gill Reveal New Horrors on July 25th!

 

 Valiant is proud to present a deeper first look at BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #1, the incredible introduction to an ALL-NEW EPIC SERIES and BLOODSTAINED JUMPING-ON POINT! On July 25th, acclaimed writer Peter Milligan (Detective Comics) returns to the ancient world with fan-favorite artist Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH) for an an all-new, self-contained entry into Valiant’s supernatural sleuthing series!


The Roman standard – the eagle borne at the front of each Roman legion – was more than just a symbol of the soldiers that carried it… It was a symbol of Rome itself, the ultimate embodiment of the empire’s power…

But now, in the mist-shrouded Germanic forest of Tottenwald, the unthinkable has happened: A rampaging barbarian horde has crushed three of Rome’s most highly skilled detachments in battle…and captured their mighty Roman eagles.

His authority threatened by this all-too-public shame, the mad emperor Nero has dispatched Antonius Axia, the empire’s finest “detectioner” and hero of Britannia, and Achillia, the sword-wielding champion of the gladiatorial arena, to reclaim his stolen relics at any cost.

But what began as a simple mission will soon become a terrifying journey into the dark heart of belief itself as the isolated woodlands of Rome’s enemies reveal unseen dimensions…and the true power of the legion’s lost eagles threatens to consume any who would pursue them…

“As in all the BRITANNIA stories, though there are elements bordering on the supernatural, the biggest monsters are probably some of the men and women that Antonius Axia encounters on his adventures…” said writer Peter Milligan.

“The story is a nice continuation on the mythos of Antonius Axia that seamlessly builds on the first two series, while presenting a whole new mystery that takes him to a new, unexpected location,” artist Robert Gill said. “There’s an absolute plethora of my favorite things to draw in this series which I hope culminate into one hell of a visual experience for the reader.”

On July 25th, prepare yourselves for a perilous journey into an age of magic, mystery, and monsters, as storytellers Peter Milligan and Robert Gill dive deep into BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #1 – featuring covers from Cary Nord (Conan the Barbarian), Brian Thies (Star Wars: Legacy), and David Mack (Kabuki)!

What Comic Shops Bought The Most Of In MAY 2018

EDITOR’S NOTE:  The following information comes to us courtesy of the good folks at Diamond Distributors.  Yes, these are the best sellers but I want to make a distinction here." Not again!", some of you are probably thinking. In today’s comic book business the distributor (Diamond) and publishers large and small (the ones who produce the comics) aren’t so much concerned with how many comics the end consumer purchases as they are with how many copies the comic shops pre-ordered.  That’s why I headed this article as “What Comic Shops Bought” instead of “What Customers Bought”.  I would love to see some statistics on actual sales of these books, but I’ve not found a source for that information yet, and nothing shuts up a local comic shop quicker than my request for some actual sales data. I’m sure I’m not the only person interested in that. Of course, what shops pre-order the most and what they stock their shelves with determines what books they will sell the most of every month. It’s easy to see why Marvel and DC dominate - - there aren’t many titles that comic shops would dare to omit from their order for fear of customer reprisal. Yet, my hat is off to all the other publishers.  They manage to be profitable and grow their business in spite of never making the Top 100 lists. 

Still, I like to check it from time to time to see how many non-Marvel and non-DC books make it onto the list.  Every time I see a little victory I give a cheer, because if it happens too often you can expect Marvel and DC to produce some big epic cross-over event or re-booted series so stores will have to stock up on their books instead of giving a chance to a deserving independent. Sigh.

There’s not much for me to cheer about in May 2018’s results: Marvel grabs 52 of the 100 spots in the ranking; DC makes the list 37 times; and Image scores with 11 titles.  Looking at the Image books that made the list you will see the familiar popular titles that have spent a long time developing their audience: Walking Dead, Spawn, Saga.  Two newer titles jump into the rankings: Robert Kirkmans Oblivion Song (well-deserved) and Death of Glory.  Interesting that a weekly series entered the rankings in Images Barrier, with all five issues making the list.  I suspect part of the reason is that this was offered as a returnable item, so knowing that comic shops could send back unsold copies make it a bit easier to order up beyond usual limits on the #2, 3 etc issues.   DC also made Man of Steel #1 a returnable issue. Since only the debut issue of that weekly series was released in May, well have to wait to see Junes results to learn if it also scored with the remaining five issues. 

Here’s the scoop from the Diamond folks . . . . . . . .

Peter Parker and his allies battle Norman Osborn and the Carnage symbiote in Dan Slott, Stuart Immonen, and an all-star roster of artists' Amazing Spider-Man #800, an oversized landmark issue from Marvel Comics and the best-selling comic book of May.

Marvel Comics had four titles in the top ten. In addition to Amazing Spider-Man #800, Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman's Venom #1 ranked #2, Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness' Avengers #1 ranked #4, and Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuña's Black Panther #1 ranked #5.

DC Entertainment had five titles in the top ten: Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's Doomsday Clock #5 ranked #3; Tom King and Tony S. Daniel's Batman #47 ranked 6; King and Daniel's Batman #46 ranked #7; Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson, and Francis Manapul's Justice League: No Justice #1 ranked #8; and Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Reis, and Jason Fabok's The Man of Steel #1 ranked #9.

Also in the top ten, Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead #179 ranked #10.

Among the premier publishers, BOOM! Studios' Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #27 was their top book at #133, Frank Miller's Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander #2 was Dark Horse's top book at #129, Dynamite Entertainment's Red Sonja/Tarzan #1 ranked #142, and IDW Publishing's TMNT: Urban Legends #1 ranked #159.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which includes the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from sales made to thousands of comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world. Additional sales made to online merchants and other specialty stores may be included as well.

Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond customers during any given month, which comprises pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable. Please note that comics marked with an asterisk (*) have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

About the Diamond Sales Index: The Sales Index of selected monthly Best Seller Charts is presented as a comparative tool for retailers and publishers. It presents Diamond’s monthly sales for individual titles in relation to Diamond’s total sales for the issue of DC Comics' monthly Batman comic book. (Batman is used as the control title – with a value of 100 – because sales of Batman usually remain relatively stable. This month, as Batman did not ship, Convergence #8 from DC Entertainment was used as the control index.) This allows for easy comparison to other titles and helps retailers gauge their orders for all other titles. This formula is only a guide, other factors may impact a titles’ ability to sell in certain locations and clientele.
