Much like they’ve done with their impressive publishing line, Valiant Entertainment is re-writing the rules on how to celebrate an anniversary. In honor of their 25th year on planet Earth, the revitalized company is launching an exhaustive anniversary tour across several different conventions, fairs, and more.
The festivities kick off this weekend at the Emerald City Comic Con. With guns blazing like their nanite-infused hero Bloodshot, the company hold a strong presence with convention exclusives, special announcements and new, and a line-up of top talent. Take that, Justice League.
In the gallery below, take a look at the exclusive swag up for grabs at the convention, including Ninjak #1 ECCC Exclusive Variant, Bloodshot Reborn #1 ECCC Exclusive Print, and Valiant’s 25th Anniversary Convention Tour poster.
And here’s Valiant’s official panel descriptions for Emerald City Comic Con's programming.
