As the September 20th debut of Bloodshot: Salvation nears, Valiant is rolling out a few promotional aids. Let’s see what’s on the table.
A “Jeff Lemire Section” shelf talker, which even name checks some of his non-Valiant work.
Bloodshot’s hand written letter to Magic, with a pre-order form on the back.
Promotional poster for the Valiant Icons line of Fall launches.
A six foot tall promotional standee – they’re not just for movie theaters.
Official words from Valiant follow:
Out of the record-setting success of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – the year’s highest selling new series launch from any independent publisher – and the near-universal critical acclaim surrounding the recent release of SECRET WEAPONS #1 (of 4), the next great Valiant ICONS launch of 2017 starts here on September 20th in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, an epic new beginning and essential jumping-on point for Valiant’s unstoppable soldier! Across 2017, look for FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #1 (of 4), WAR MOTHER #1 (of 4), ETERNITY #1 (of 4), NINJA-K #1 and QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 to join the ICONS line-up with major new series as the largest independent superhero universe in comics gears up for a major leap forward.
Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form of the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of homegrown criminals – re-emerge to lay claim to their lost daughter, Bloodshot will be pushed back to the brink of madness, mayhem, and warfare…
Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…
His sacrifice will be her salvation…
On September 20th, Bloodshot’s most devastating mission yet begins with a tooth-and-nail fight to protect the family he’d give anything for… Give into vengeance as Jeff Lemire, Mico Suayan, and Lewis LaRosa unleash Valiant’s must-read series of the fall in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Monika Palosz (DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE), Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), and Dave Johnson (100 Bullets)!
