If you are hoping to get a super rare-ish edition of Bloodshot Salvation #1, Ninja-K #1, and Quantum and Woody #1, you better be nice to your LCS owner, as Valiant Entertainment plans to give retailers blind-bagged editions of these books out during the annual Diamond Retailer Appreciation Breakfast.
BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 RETAILER EDITION
Featuring the complete colored artwork and jaw-dropping action of the first issue of Valiant’s next pivotal ongoing series, the full-on sensory assault of September’s blockbuster series debut from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Black Hammer) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN) must be seen to be believed
NINJA-K #1 RETAILER EDITION SCRIPT BOOK
Go inside the classified history of MI-6’s “Ninja Programme” with this one-of-a-kind look into writer Christos Gage’s (Netflix’s Daredevil) action-fueled first issue with heatseeking artist Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), set to clock in at a colossal 40 pages when it hits stands in November
QUANTUM & WOODY! (2017) #1 RETAILER EDITION BLANK BOOK
Don’t worry – it’s not really blank! (Well, kind of…) Before the world’s worst superheroes explode back into stores in December, get a “look” at the superpower mayhem that rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and eye-popping artist Kano (Daredevil) are cooking up right here – plus a special surprise guest appearance by Eisner Award-nominated artist Joe Eisma (Archie)!
If you are a retailer who can’t attend the Diamond Retailer Breakfast, get a hold of Valiant right away and they can help you out. If you are a fan that wants a copy of these comics, you better be super nice to your local retailer as they are the only ones who can get copies of these. My guess is a low print run, will allow retailers to sell these copies for a pretty penny when they return from the San Diego Comic-Con, thus offsetting some of the cost of the trip.
