With the recent announcement that Valiant of all properties will be adapted for TV and Movies through an expansive, connected universe here are the issues I recommend.  I am not including many of the gold issues simply because they have continued to demand decent money even before the announcement.  Be aware that many of the first issues from these series have gold variants some of which are flat gold while others are embossed.

Archer & Armstrong #0, Archer & Armstrong #8

ArcherArmstrong0-454x700

Despite a huge print run this comic is the first appearance of one of the best series  Valiant has ever offered.  Get a CGC 9.8 and you will still make some decent money.  Even the new series from Valiant is a great read and some of those issues ( including 0, first One Percent ) are worth a look.

Issue 8 is a flip book and features the first appearance of Ivar the Timewalker.

Issue 64 is rare due to a low print run. You will find that many of the last issues from Valiant properties are quite rare.

The Visitor VS. the Valiant Universe #1 & #2

These cover prices make these issues extremely hard to come by. Remember $2.95 is common and worth nothing. Other series like Turok also have $2.50 cover variants. Technically they are newsstand pricing issues and are scarce.

Harbinger #10

Even though issues 1-6 are all tough to find and coveted by collectors they are well known because of rarity and quality. Other than issue 41 (last issue) issue 10 is the only other comic from the series I can recommend. Even though H.A.R.D. Corps was a fair comic to say the least it would make an excellent movie in this writer’s opinion and it is going to be cheap no matter where you find it.

Rai #33

Rai is the first original  character that Valiant created. Issues 1-5 are rare especially 4.

The only gold issue on my list is issue 9 of this series because it’s often forgotten as it marks a less than stellar new direction for the title

Project: Rooftop And Valiant Entertainment Announce SHADOWMAN: IN A NEW LIGHT contest

Project: Rooftop  And Valiant Entertainment Announce 

“Shadowman: In A New Light” Redesign  Contest

Comics Veteran  And Shadowman Co-Writer/Artist Patrick Zircher To Act As Guest  Judge

Project: Rooftop is proud to announce that they’re partnering with Valiant Entertainment to host their next redesign contest, spotlighting on the hero  Shadowman. Originally created back in 1994 by Jim Shooter, Steve  Englehart, David Lapham and Bob Layton, Shadowman has become one of the  biggest heroes in independent comics, selling over 5 million copies of  his long-running series and prompting several video game spin-offs. And  now with the character returning in an all-new series, Shadowman in November, Project: Rooftop is organizing artists worldwide to submit  their own renditions of the hero for prizes, reviews and recognition.

 

Shadowman  is one of the key figures in the Valiant comics universe; a dark  vigilante who strives to banish the sinister forces that try to creep  their way into our reality. The character returns in November with an  all-new series by co-writer/artist Patrick Zircher and writer Justin  Jordan.

 

“We’re excited to partner with a prestigious comic company  like Valiant and give our readers and our artists something special for  this redesign contest,” said journalist and P:R co-founder Chris  Arrant. “On behalf of Dean, the P:R contributors and our readers, we’re  excited to see how artists will reinterpret the Shadowman character.”

 

Joining the regular P:R judges is veteran comics artist and artist of the upcoming Shadowman series,  Patrick Zircher. Zircher is responsible for the modern designs of both  Shadowman and Ninjak, and previously worked on a variety of Marvel  titles including Captain America and Iron Man.

 

“Valiant’s  night-prowling, monster-hunting hero is a very special character for  me,” said Zircher. “There’s a terrific pool of talent out there and I’m  really looking forward to the contest designs for Shadowman.”

 

Valiant Entertainment is providing prizes for the top three places in our contest. First place will receive a copy of the rare Shadowman Black, the Bill Sienkiewicz variant cover to Shadowman #1 and the Dave Johnson variant covers to Shadowman #1 and #2. Second place will receive the Dave Johnson variant covers to Shadowman #1 and #2 as well as a complete run of the Valiant books released since  the company returned this summer. Third place will receive the Dave  Johnson variant covers to Shadowman #1 and #2.

 

Entries  for “Shadowman: In A New Light” should aim to create a new take on the  hero that stays true to the character’s concept and history and only revise their costume, as if your design was in the running to be used  in current continuity. All entries must be received by November 30, 2012  at midnight EST. As usual, check our guidelines, include your name and website, and send your art as an attachment in jpg, png, or gif format to projectrooftop@gmail.com.

 

Thanks to Paul Milligan for designing the logo for this contest.
