Fans of Valiant’s classics listen up, there are some fresh collected editions coming up from the company’s new Valiant Classic Collections line.
Back to the 90s
Yes, Valiant Comics has been around for a while now in their modern form. The rebirth included most of their most iconic heroes and villains, from X-O Manowar to Bloodshot to everyone in between. There are still more than a few fans though, that love the classic Valiant.
Born in the early 90s, Valiant was an early smash. The line enjoyed quite a bit of popularity on comics racks around the country. And now a pair of collected editions will be bringing all of that action back for a modern fanbase. All the way from 1992.
Just announced and released, Valiant Classic Collections kicks off with Archer & Armstrong: Revival and X-O Manowar: Retribution.

Archer is the world’s greatest hand-to-hand ﬁghter, an expert marksman, and a seeker of truth and righteousness. Armstrong is an immortal warrior who has reluctantly brawled his way from pre-history to modern times only to realize that the best way to face life’s many challenges is to grab a drink. But Armstrong counts as his worst day the one when Archer turned up and decided that they were partners – a team chosen by fate to save the world!
