One of our favorite publishers for the last few years have been the fine folks at VALIANT COMICS, and we’re always impressed with the caliber of talent they’re bringing on, and the quality of their books, so we wanted to put the spotlight on a few of our favorite VALIANT releases.
And, in addition, the very talented Jonboy Meyers, has donated a piece of original COVER ART from the VALIANT COMICS series, KI-6: KILLERS (issue #4), to Third Eye, so we could auction it off for you.
This was a super cool move by Jonboy and Valiant in an effort to throw some post-COVID shutdown love at your pals at Third Eye, and we wanted to use this opportunity to bring some attention to their projects, including the brand new NINJAK that’s coming down the pipeline!

He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad.
But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving head-long into the violence that nearly destroyed him.

WAR IS COMING! Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished.
His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth… only to find himself stranded in the modern day. But that was a lifetime ago. Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.
But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more.
With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH.
