Valiant adult novels coming soon with Blackstone Publishing partnership

Expect Shadowman, Eternal Warrior, and Livewire in future adult novel format.

Press Release

Valiant Entertainment has revealed they’ve set up a partnership with Blackstone Publishing to produce adult novels featuring Valiant characters. It’s still early yet, but Shadowman, Eternal Warrior, and Livewire were just three characters that will likely get adult novel adaptations. With book publishing pulling in over $25 billion in 2020, the time is now to get into prose.

Likely this is part of the big Year of Valiant push which includes new series and creative teams.

I know that their existing fan base will love these books and stories, and it will give many more people exposure to the worlds and figures Valiant has created that so many of their ardent followers regularly enjoy.”

Brendan Deneen, Blackstone’s Director of Media, TV, and Film, is thrilled about bringing new voices to the engrossing Valiant Universe. “I’m excited to work with the Valiant team to find the perfect prose authors as we develop exhilarating new takes for this amazing comics library. This is a great chance to bring in new readers to the Valiant Universe while also staying true to what makes these characters so iconic in the first place.”
