XO Manowar from Valiant, November 2022, solicits for seven months

|

Earlier this month, after announcing that Valiant Entertainment had let go of much of its staff, Bleeding Cool told the story of Valiant canceling Archer & Armstrong mid-series, delaying future issues of book of shadows until 2023 and wondered what would happen XO Manowar, still scheduled for November 2022. Later, Valiant Entertainment came out strong with a PR titled “The Epic Future of Valiant Entertainment Publishing” which included Undefeated XO Manowar drawn by Liam Sharp, scheduled for November 2022, but listed for March 2o23. And so it is in Valiant Entertainment’s solicitation for the November 2022 comic to include XO Manowar #1 but scheduled for March 22, seven months from now. I’ve never seen a mainstream US publisher of a monthly comic book soliciting something so far in advance. It looks like they already have the location in previews and probably advertising as well, and decided they might as well use it. It’s quite strange. Here are Valiant Entertainment’s full November 2022 solicitations and solicitations – even though the big launch is for March. Bloodshot Unleashed #3 is still in demand for November. And the book of shadows the collection is postponed to… May? May? It’s in nine months. What’s going on? I should try to get my hands on a printed copy of Previews this week and see if it matches those dates.
