Editors, Lysa Hawkins and Heather Antos, have greatly influenced the direction Valiant Entertainment has recently taken in comics. Hawkins is overseeing both Bloodshot and Rai in addition to several other titles that have yet to be announced. Antos is working on Quantum & Woody and the upcoming series, X-O Manowar, The Final Witness and Shadowman.
Their contributions have not been overlooked and Valiant recently promoted the pair to senior editors. In their new role, they will manage the Editorial Department, craft the future of the Valiant Universe, forge relationships with creators and so much more.
Antos, who has had previous stops with Marvel and Image, says her current employer is unlike any publisher she’s worked with.
Valiant has allowed editorial to break tradition and the mold in some very exciting ways, and I could not be more thrilled to be taking on this new role alongside my friend and colleague Lysa. Together our goal is to push and lead Valiant creative further than ever before with new stories, new characters, and of course, new talent from the industry’s brightest and best. 2020 is the Year of Heroes, and this is only just the beginning.
Hawkins is looking forward to working with both iconic Valiant characters as well as developing ones now to the universe.
I’m super excited about the opportunity to be part of the ever-expanding and amazing Valiant Universe. I am incredibly blessed to have Heather as my co-pilot, and between us, we know just about everyone in comics. We complement each other very well, and that is evident in the great comics we produce. I am very grateful to be able to help forge a bigger and brighter chapter in Valiant. So, keep reading and stay Valiant!
