THE VALIANT - Episode 1 by MadefireStudios
THE VALIANT - Episode 1
A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin…with an all-new, prestige format mini-series from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow, Animal Man) & Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and Eisner Award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)!

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

Drumroll please...and the winner is...


Greetings everyone!

It’s been a busy month so far (as we all just got back from New York Comic Con a few days ago, phew!) and boy did we have fun going through the entries for the Fran Kenstein Artist Challenge—thanks again for everyone who entered or supported us, we had a blast! We hope you did, too! It was tough coming to a consensus but we eventually did…

And so without further adieu, I’d like to introduce our winner:

Congratulations Morgan Long (Felis-M) as the winner in the Fran Kenstein Artist Challenge! She really went all-out with her sample, even coloring and lettering the piece, and we felt she wonderfully captured the spirit of the character and world. Judge Dave Gibbons even went so far as to note “it has a magical quality”.

So excited to get the project moving forward with you on board!

Also, we were so thrilled with the quality of submissions that we have a few more announcements…first up, thank you Amelia Parris (FlossAndChaos) for your submission:

and John McGuinness

They equally did such a fine job with their samples that we’re planning on bringing them on board for some future projects we have cooking…great work you two! 

Last, but certainly not least, Rich Fuscia
(Fusciart) who not only created his sample page for the contest but also built it as a Motion Book! We were so impressed by the clever build that we’ve asked him to be the guest ‘builder’ for the Fran story—and he’s agreed to it! Hooray!

We’re absolutely thrilled at how well everything went and we’d like to thank every contestant who put time and effort into their submissions. You guys all ROCK! We’d also like to thank our panel of terrific guest judges for their help and insight and enthusiasm!

Until the next challenge!

Cheers!
Madefire

We are not deviantART - so to be streamlined from production in the Tool to a deviation on your profile these permissions must be performed.

Publish deviations on your behalf -- We need permission to submit the motion books you build to it so that they can be submitted and appear to dA.

Email address -- To contact you with relevant updates and on-boarding onto the iOS and Android app as well as functionality and features in the tool that require it. We do not spam.

Username - We need to know who you are on dA so that the Motion Book Tool can identify you to publish your work to your particular stash.

We never delete/modify or even list what's in your sta.sh, just submit motion books to it. That's the mechanism dA has given us to submit them.

I  am sorry, but as much as I love comics and the idea of creating them I find threatening the second and last points. What does this mean? How can you publish thing on my behalf or manage my stuff? It is is a big breach on my privacy or of any user for that matter.
