Valiant and ComicsPRO are partnering for Local Comic Shop Day, a brand-new event celebrating comic book shops and their important contributions to the comic book industry. Set for Saturday, November 28th, your local participating comics retailer will have two exclusive Valiant offerings: Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #1 and Book of Death: The Fall of Harbinger #1 LCSD Exclusive Variants.
First, Local Comic Shop Day begins with the Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #1 LCSD Exclusive Variant – kicking off Valiant's biggest series launch of the fall with an all-new, never-before-seen cover by acclaimed artist Tom Fowler (Quantum and Woody, Venom).
For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He's razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth. But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he's faced before. Separated from his earthly environs, can history's deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and far more ruinous than anything he's ever encountered?
Then, Valiant's Local Comic Shop Day celebration continues with the Book of Death: The Fall of Harbinger #1 LCSD Exclusive Variant. Featuring a brand-new cover by red-hot rising star Robert Gill (Book of Death, Batgirl) and strictly limited to 1,000 copies.
Valiant's blockbuster summer event continues here with a glimpse into the future of the Valiant Universe…and the revelation of the long-awaited final reckoning between the world's two most powerful psiots…Peter Stanchek and Toyo Harada!
Local Comic Shop Day is a new event designed to call attention to locally owned independent comic book specialty stores, celebrating their unique and vital role in being the primary fire-starters of pop culture.The first Local Comic Shop Day will be Saturday, November 28th, two days after Thanksgiving and coinciding with the day American Express has labeled "Small Business Saturday."
Participating retailers will sell exclusive releases from participating publishers. Some items offered will be limited editions, others will be "first day of release" items debuting on LCSD, released on that Saturday – outside of the traditional Wednesday routine. The goal of Local Comic Shop Day is to jump start the holiday buying season for storefront comics specialty retailers while also giving comics fans more of what they most desire.
