LibraryPass, Inc. has completed the addition of more than 1,500 titles from Valiant Entertainment’s colorful history to Comics Plus, making their entire digital catalog available to libraries and schools — including day & date access to their newest releases. With Comics Plus, readers can access thousands of digital comics, graphic novels, and manga through their school or public library—with unlimited simultaneous access for online and offline reading.
Founded in 1989 by a legendary group of comic book creators — including Jim Shooter, Bob Layton, Barry Windsor-Smith, and David Lapham — Valiant sought to reflect the diversity and outlook of its readership, with stories embracing the moral ambiguity of real life. Nearly 35 years later, powered by another cutting-edge stable of creative talent, and one of the most active and committed fandoms, they’re now the largest and best-selling independent universe in the comics industry.
“The 90s were an innovative time for comics, and Valiant introduced some amazing characters, many of whom have significantly evolved since then to reflect the complicated world we live in today,” said Guy LeCharles Gonzalez, LibraryPass’ Chief Content Officer. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer Valiant’s entire catalog to libraries and high schools in Comics Plus, giving readers a unique opportunity to jump into their newest launches, while also having unlimited access to every character’s entire history in one place.”
2022 has been called “The Year of Valiant,” a year-long celebration that will feature new launches with new creators, the return of fan-favorite characters, and the formation of new teams. It’s also an opportunity to remember what came before, as their entire digital catalog now available on Comics Plus.
