Valiant has made the exciting announcement that their editorial staff has grown with the addition of former Marvel editor and recent editor on key Image Comics titles, Heather Antos.
According to Valiant, Antos will be jumping right in working with writer Vita Ayala on the recently launched Livewire series. Antos will also “develop a stable of her own titles and engage with her extensive list of creator contacts”. We’ll see her at events coming up as well.
Senior Editorial Director Robert Meyers says:
I’m thrilled to announce the hiring of Heather Antos. Heather has a sterling reputation, from the launching of the Star Wars line at Marvel, to her recent work at Image on Injection and Bitter Root; she is the kind of voice we want at Valiant. With Heather joining us, we have a fully staffed Editorial department – each member brings unique story viewpoints that will broaden and deepen the Valiant line. I look forward to reading the stories Heather develops within the Valiant Universe.
There is no better time than right now to join Valiant. The creative teams, characters, and stories have never looked stronger and I’m excited to collaborate with Editorial on even greater stories as we build toward the release of BLOODSHOT in theaters February 2020. From X-O Manowar to Livewire, Quantum and Woody to Faith, there is a Valiant character for everyone, and I’m excited to bring these characters to new readers.
We welcome Antos to Valiant and look forward to seeing the energy and vision that she’ll be bringing to upcoming titles!
