Valiant Comics are making a come back and X-O Manowar's first issue will feature something a little different.
Valiant announced today the world's first QR code-augmented talking comic book cover. Beginning this Wednesday, February 29th, you'll get a glimpse of what you can expect. The only place to experience this milestone is in local comic shops nationwide.
Valiant Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasini said the following:
We want fans worldwide to know that something special is happening in their local comic shop during the build-up to May 2nd and the launch of the new Valiant Universe. Valiant's QR Voice Variant is not only a new innovation in comics and a true incentive for retailers, but an enhanced and immersive experience for fans as well. By merging elements of print and digital, we've hopefully created something that fans will just have to see in person!
Valiant will ship out thousands of interactive, retailer-exclusive posters previewing the innovation. The cover is illustrated by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic and scripted by Robert Venditti. The issue is by Venditti with art by Cary Nord and will be on sale May 2.== TEASER ==
