Valiant and Cinder Block Partner For T-Shirts, Apparel and More

Posted by G-Man (29428 posts) - - Show Bio

Starting today, buying Valiant merchandise has become a whole lot easier...provided you have the money.

Valiant has consistently been putting out great comics. They are now extending their track record to great merchandise. Teaming up Cinder Block, the leading independent music and entertainment merchandise company, you can visit Valiant.Cinderblock.com for a wide variety of great looking product.

What sort of items are available?

Cinder Block's all-new Valiant web store features designs and artwork by some of the most popular creators in comics with the first wave of t-shirts set to include X-O Manowar by David Aja, Bloodshot by Rafael Grampa, and Harbinger by Jeff Lemire. Future releases will see the addition of merchandise based upon Shadowman, Archer & Armstrong, Quantum and Woody, and other exciting properties from Valiant's 1,500-strong character library.

Besides the items seen above, you'll find some super-cool lithographs, enamel pins, hats, buttons and other shirts. There is pretty much something for all the Valiant fans to enjoy.

Now you may ask, "What are these shirts really like? What sort of quality t-shirt material are they?" I can answer that. Valiant put out a super limited run of the Rafael Grampa BLOODSHOT shirt (it's a different color) and I decided to model it for you.

Head on over to Valiant.Cinderblock.com to check out the full line of merchandise. There will also be a selection of new, retailer-exclusive products available only at local comic shops and will be listed in future editions of Diamond Previews.

Lemire, Grampa and Aja! These are awesome.

Probably not a good idea to wear Bloodshot merchandise to the airport.

I love BloodShot and all, but his armor, swords, guns, pouches, seems like a bit much.....

@amutant: One has every right to throw a bitch fit if security stops you because there's a scary samurai on your shirt and I will.

I want so much of this stuff it kinda sucks. :/

Those are actually some pretty nice shirts. Glad you posted these pictures. It could work as a companion to a little blog project I'm working on. =D

I really want those Bloodshot and X-O Manowar t-shirts, especially the latter. Some of the other stuff they have on their site is pretty damn awesome too.

I don't read X-O Manowar, but I would wear the hell out of that shirt.

And they totally exist too. I think I saw some pics of Valiant guys wearing them at a convention or FCBD, one of the two.

Jeff Lemire plus shirts equals frequent success. I don't read Harbinger, but if I did I would get that shirt to be folded next to my Animal Man T-shirt. All of this stuff looks pretty cool. Sad to see no Shadowman stuff. Maybe if the merch sells well.

Cinder Block is awesome. They used to do merch for my band. Really generous people over there. I will have to get that Jeff Lemire shirt.

We can hope.

Pretty sweet article. Glad this was brought to our attention. My wife would kill me if she saw me wearing one of these. She freaked out today when I was wearing a shirt from the Super! kickstarter I backed.

Sweet! The xo-shirt for me please.

I'm getting the Valiant hat!

Loved that X-O Manowar cover ever since I saw it; I may consider buying it.

I'd wear the Grampa Bloodshot one, love the detail of the character covered in weapons. But I wish it didn't say his name "Bloodshot" above him like that. I know its a comic shirt and they usually do, but I would have liked it better the other way.

oh man, oh man, oh man, oh man, oh man...........

I do not really like any of these comics, but I love the artists and these images. Grampa especially. That dude needs to put out a new comic. Mesmo Delivery rules.

@savagedragon: I brought up Bloodshot last week on the podcast (and BEST STUFF video) and I am caught up on HARBINGER. Maybe you missed my WonderCon interview with Joshua Dysart back in March?

It would cost me 36 dollars to get 1 tee. Ill pass.

#29 Posted by AkaBoAli (44 posts) - - Show Bio

looking forward for the Archer & Armstrong one, and I'll buy anything by David Aja, comic books and also t-shirts!!

You don't like Valiant? That's the first time I'v ever heard anybody say that.

Yeah, I've gotten the first trades of Harbinger, XO, and Bloodshot, and haven't really liked any of them. I hated Harbinger's art, and none of the characters in it were likeable. The fat girl was especially annoying, and the main character was a rapist with an addict friend.

So far, it just seems like the titles are very 90s. I lived through all that the first time, and it's not something I'm eager to get back to. I haven't read Shadowman or Archer and Armstrong yet, but I'll give them a shot too. I don't have particularly high expectations.

I'm getting that X-O shirt. Too cool to pass up.
