MERCH: Valiant and Dynamic Forces team for collectibles
Dynamic Forces is proud to announce a new licensing partnership with Valiant Entertainment, the leading independent publisher of such best-selling series as X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong, Bloodshot and many more. The industry’s premiere collectibles company has been granted the rights to create resin statues, dioramas, bookends, full-size head reproductions, busts, lithographs, posters, and more, featuring the logos and artwork of Valiant’s fan favorite super-hero universe. The first Dynamic Forces product in partnership with Valiant will be the upcoming X-O Manowar lithograph, featuring the artwork of superstar artist Marko Djurdjevic.
“I worked extensively with Dynamic Forces during my time at Marvel and, true to form, they have a wide array of exciting plans in store for Valiant’s universe of characters,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions and Ad Sales. “We’re incredibly excited and enthused to have them on board on as one of Valiant’s licensing partners.”
“Dynamic Forces is one of the leading licensors in comics and with good reason. They’re passionate, knowledgeable and experienced, and we look forward to a fruitful partnership,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.
The Dynamic Forces/Valiant licensing partnership will launch this July with an all-new X-O Manowar lithograph, featuring the artwork of world-renowned illustrator and artist Marko Djurdjevic reproduced in a oversized 18″ by 24″ format. Reproducing the cover of X-O Manowar #12 – the one-year of anniversary issue of X-O Manowar’s return of the Valiant Universe – the lithograph features Valiant’s armored Visigoth hero locked in mortal combat with deadly alien adversary.
“As a lifelong fan of comic books, I can honestly say that Valiant’s return was something I had long been waiting for, and their astronomical success since the ‘Summer of Valiant’ campaign is so very well deserved. Their line is one of the most cohesive in comics, and most accessible. ” says Nick Barrucci, CEO of Dynamic Forces. “Words can’t express how excited I am to work with Dinesh and Valiant Entertainment to create a range of high-quality, high-end collectibles that their hardcore fans will cherish having.”
