Valiant August 2020 Solicits Sees Final Witness Delayed Till 2021

Valiant Entertainment has an incredibly limited line-up of titles solicited for August 2020. No sign of the Shadowman launch or of Final Witness, instead there's the launch of Savage initially planned for June, a resolicitation of the Rai trade paperback and X-O Manowar #2 initially planned for April. And that's it. Despite the film, there is no sign of Bloodshot, Rai or Doctor Tomorrow. But that's because these are just the solicitations.

  • It currently looks like Bloodshot #8, #9 and #10 has been delayed to September, October and November.
  • Rai #6, #7 and #8 to August, September and October.
  • Doctor Tomorrow #3, #4 and #5 to June, July and August.
  • Shadowman #1 to September – though #2 date still set in June needs amending.
  • Final Witness however has had its first three issues rescheduled to February, March and April next year, 2021.
  • While Savage #1 and X-O Manowar #2 make up the new Valiant solicitations for August, below.
