Valiant have absolutely blitzed it today, announcing a new initiative which will see a new series launch every month right through until September. Amongst the announcements are a Quantum & Woody/Archer & Armstrong crossover, and new books by Jen Van Meter, Matt Kindt, Doug Braithwaite, Joe Harris, Roberto De La Torre and Clayton Crain.
