Valiant Leads 2016 Harvey Award Nominations

Valiant Entertainment continues to astound readers with its every growing fanbase based on their accessibility of their books, the amount of books they release and their overall willingness to print multiple kinds of books while still being within the same universe. And this year’s Harvey Award nominations continue that tread.

This year, Valiant leads the pack with 50, count ’em, 50 nominations with Bloodshot Reborn earning 8 nominations of its own, more than any title on this years nominations list. This alone definitely speaks about the quality of Valiant’s book and that readers are definitely reading. With multiple sell outs, multiple exclusive contracts and books cycled in an out throughout the year, this gives proof that what Valiant does is working.
