by Hannah Means Shannon

C2E2 is taking place this week in Chicago, and you’ll find Comicon.com there to celebrate comics. This year, Valiant will be taking part again, and holding panels, signings, and releasing exclusives, too. They even have a Harbinger Wars 2-themed beer to release!

From Friday, April 6th through Sunday, April 8th, you’ll find Valiant at Booth #317. They’ll be debuting the Shadowman (2018) #1 C2E2 Exclusive Variant, featuring a limited-edition cover by Stephen Segovia (Action Comics).

Signings and free sketches at the booth will include artist Stephen Segovia (SHADOWMAN) and writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, Mind MGMT).

Valiant has also partnered once again with Pipeworks Brewing Co. for the LIVEWIRE RASPBERRY IPA WITH LIME, a new limited-edition brew created to celebrate the upcoming Harbinger Wars 2. A portion of the proceeds from all sales of the LIVEWIRE RASPBERRY IPA WITH LIME will benefit Hope for the Day (HFTD.ORG), a Chicago-based proactive suicide prevention and mental health education non-profit.

Pipeworks Brewing Co.’s LIVEWIRE RASPBERRY IPA WITH LIME is a limited release and will be available in select Illinois and New York bottle shops. Find participating retailers and distributors via Pipeworks’ location page, or visit them directly Thursday through Saturday at the Pipeworks Brewing Co.
