Valiant's Bloodshot

 

More exciting news out of Valiant Entertainment! Now that we have fallen back in love with characters such as X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, and Ninjak, we will soon be able to collect them in trading card form! Valiant has just announced a deal with collectibles company Rittenhouse Archives to release a line of trading cards and collectors' albums for their popular comic book characters. Look out for them to be released at the 2013 Comic-Con International - another great reason to make the annual pilgrimage to San Diego next year!

New York, NY (November 28, 2012) – Valiant Entertainment has teamed up with long-established collectibles company Rittenhouse Archives to create trading card series and collectors’ albums for the Valiant Universe, which includes beloved comic book characters X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Shadowman, Harbinger, Rai, H.A.R.D. Corps, Archer & Armstrong, Ninjak, and Armorines. The cards and albums are planned to launch in the US and Canada, at Comic Con San Diego, in 2013.
 
"All of us at Rittenhouse are extremely excited to add Valiant Comics to our distinguished list of evergreen properties," said Rittenhouse President Steve Charendoff. "Valiant has rapidly returned to its rightful place among the top publishers of comics today, and, in a world that increasingly craves quality super-hero stories and characters in all forms of media, its future prospects couldn't be brighter."
 
Rittenhouse Archives, Ltd. is a leading producer of science fiction, fantasy and comic book trading cards.  Rittenhouse currently produces trading cards for James Bond, Star Trek, Marvel Comics, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Spartacus, Falling Skies, Warehouse 13 and other top properties.

Valiant previously released four hugely successful trading card series in the 1990’s including three with Upper Deck and one with Comic Images. The deal launches a three-year commitment between the companies.
