Valiant Unleashes #Valiantcraft Month This August

Valiant meets Minecraft in August!

Because of the success of their 8-bit covers, Valiant is doing a whole month gaming-related covers known this August which is called ValiantCraft. As you may have guessed, the covers will be based on the style of the hit video game Minecraft. These stylistic covers will be constructed by artist Donovan Santiago and available along side regular covers.

"Last year's Valiant 8-Bit covers initiative was an incredible success, and #ValiantCraft is the next evolution of an idea that really resounded with fans and retailers," said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. "Donovan Santiago has done a phenomenal job realizing Valiant's most popular characters like they've never been seen before – and, just as we did last year in the wake of Valiant 8-Bit's sold-out debut, we won't be limiting the scope of #ValiantCraft to comics alone. Look for even more announcements as the summer continues."

"I was super, super-lucky to once again team up with Donovan Santiago on such an incredibly fun project," said Valiant Assistant Editor Josh Johns. "Donovan has brought an incredible amount of creativity and quality to each concept, far exceeding our expectations. Just like our line of Valiant 8-Bit covers, this is a project that can appeal to everyday comic readers and new audiences alike. Hopefully, fans will have just as much fun with these books, and the stories inside them, as we did working on them."

Awesome! I read A&A and Unity, so I look forward to seeing those covers (even though I buy trades and they'll be in the back).
