Valiant Comics Database

Alien Books is an international comic book publisher based out of New York City. Beginning in 2023, they partnered with Valiant Entertainment to publish Valiant Universe titles.



Founded in early 2023, Alien Books entered a distribution partnership with the independent company FairSquare Comics,[1] after briefly working with Red 5 Comics. This deal was short-lived, as Alien quickly expanded, and now the company's publishing is independent.[2]

Valiant Partnership[]

In the summer of 2023, they would announce a partnership with Valiant Entertainment to be the new publisher for the Valiant Universe superhero comics and graphic novels, with the goal of increasing the strength of the publishing line. [3] Comics published under Alien Books will feature both the Valiant and Alien logos. [4] The partnership came about as the company's director, Matias Timarchi, previously worked with Valiant through his company Moztros to release Valiant comic books in Spain and Latin America.[2]

Under this new partnership, Valiant Entertainment maintains ownership of the characters, and creative control over the direction of the Valiant Universe, while Alien Books handles funding, printing, and distribution.[2] The first Valiant Universe titles released by Alien Books were Eternal Warrior Classic Omnibus Volume 1 and X-O Manowar Unconquered: Prestige Edition #1 on December 6, 2023, followed shortly after by X-O Manowar Unconquered #4 as their first original release, one week later. Alien's Valiant publications are planned to primarily be plus-sized, prestige-format comics, with an increased cost, yet no ads.[2]
