Award winning Graphic Designer Rian Hughes has created Valiant’s new logo look, which might I say is a stonking bit of cutting edge logo work right there.

Here’s what our art critic – Le BAD MAN had to say:

Oh darling, its possesses a sharp almost visceral look to it, with dark tones ingrained with sanguine reds instilling a layer of bold menace entwined with a prescience and professionalism that set the standard for their undoubtedly stupendous upcoming works.

We cut him of there before he masturbated any further out his mouth.

And here’s what the designer himself had to say:

“It is always a challenging and interesting project to design the visual identity of a publisher from the ground up in every detail — logo, trade dress, title logos — and to cohesively pull all these elements together so one strong visual identity emerges. Rebooting the Valiant line’s design has been one such great project. The Valiant characters have a strong fanbase and heritage, and so the new logos are fresh and modern as befits a forward-looking publisher while still paying tribute to the originals, just as has been done with the characters themselves,”

This reboot looks better by the minute, and also below we have a beautiful David Aja Variant cover to X-O MANOWAR. Le BAD MAN had this to say:

Oh, the stark whites bristling amidst the coal blacks and dense encompassing goldenrod , my eyes explodeth with saline joy at the sight of….We had to cut him off there, but you get the idea.
