Valiant Launches New ArmorClads Comic – But Who is JJ O'Connor?

Armorclads is a new Valiant Entertainment comic book series launching in March 2022 created by JJ O'Connor, Brian Buccellato, and Manuel Garcia. This is the first brand new comic book that Valiant has solicited since the pandemic shut down two years ago.

No idea who JJ O'Connor is, and no one on the Valiant Discord where this was announced seems to either, but Brian Buccellato is well known as both a writer and colourist, working on titles such as Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Flash, Exterminators, Witchblade, Hellblazer, Ghost Rider and Batman. Manuel Garcia is an artist best known for Mystique, Bloodshot, Noble, Fantastic Four, Checkmate, Captain Midnight, Countdown and Spider-Man. But JJ O#Connor si, at this moment, unknown. And Valiant isn't replying to press queries as to who he might be. If you know JJ – or even if you are JJ – please do get in touch, We'd love to hear from you.

A BRAND NEW CORNER OF THE VALIANT UNIVERSE In a different solar system, advanced mechs known as Armorclads fight wars and build worlds.

When one of their own is killed and their world is thrown into chaos, the workers defy their oppressors… and may discover a mystery dating back centuries that could change the world – as long as they band together.
