Tommy Hancock talks about the AC UNIVERSE at PRO SE PRODUCTIONS

First Comics News - Tue, 12/06/2016 - 05:53

First Comics News: There are a lot of independent comics out there, what is it about AC Comics that made them the right partners?

Tommy Hancock: AC Comics is not just any other independent comic outfit. It is one with a rich history that is similar in a significant way to Pro Se Productions. Early on, Bill Black sought to bring the characters and concepts of the Golden Age of Comics into play for both fans of the classics and potential new readers. Pro Se does much the same with classic Pulp characters, now branching off into comics and old time radio characters as well. The sense of revival, of finding what is best about the classic material and making it into something both nostalgic and new for readers today is what I always loved about AC. So, when author Barry Reese suggested Pro Se and AC talk to one another, it seemed like a great fit from the start.

1st: What can or can’t you do with the characters?

Tommy: Bill Black and AC Comics have a great deal of editorial control in the content and direction of the stories. Now, no limits have really been placed on anything we want to do, but the way we handle licenses such as this is the licensor (Bill/AC) will get a look at every story or book before it is even touched by our staff to make sure that they approve the continuity and what’s taking place within each story.

1st: Will the stories told by Pro SE be parts of the official canon for the AC Universe?

Tommy: I don’t know if AC Comics plans to include them as canon, but I will most definitely say that the work Pro Se produces will be written so it can be placed in canon if AC Comics so desired. We’re not reimagining characters or starting over or anything. The stories will be based on previous material and therefore suitable to be included in continuity.

1st: How many books in total are planned?

Tommy: We have no limits planned. As many as we can get done and as long as Bill is happy with what we do, We want to keep doing them. We have an initial ten planned for 2017 alone, but that number could grow. I don’t see it shrinking.

1st: Barry Reese is writing a Nightveil novel what made him the right choice for this project?

Tommy: Barry has clearly shown his skill not only in writing finely crafted tales, but dealing both with lead female characters and supernatural themes. His work for Pro Se and beyond, including The Adventures of Gravedigger, show that he has a way with nuances of the supernatural as well as pacing and tension that will work well in the world of Nightveil

1st: Bobby Nash is also writing a Nightveil novel, why are they both working on the same character considering the size of the AC Universe?

Tommy: Because both are capable writers and were extended invitations to write a character of their choosing. Just so happens, they both chose Nightveil

1st: Will there be any other single character books?

Tommy: Yes. The only other one firmed up at this point is a Darkshade digest novel by crime, New Pulp, and comic author Gary Phillips in 2017.

1st: Who is working on the anthology books?

Tommy: No one as of yet, we will be making submission calls the week of December 5 for at least seven anthology titles.

1st: How does someone apply for the open submission if they are interested in writing a AC Universe story?

Tommy: The calls will go out on Facebook as well as our website,, and via news sites that carry information on such things.

1st: Will these book be available through Diamond or Amazon?

Tommy: They will be available on Amazon in print and digital format, various other formats in digital format, and by order, after a short period, in traditional bookstores. Any stores that wish to order directly, such as comic shops, may order directly from Pro Se Productions by emailing

1st: What price points are planed for this project?

Tommy: It will depend on the final format for each, but print books should range from 10 to 18 dollars depending on size. Also, digital copies will range from 2.99 to 4.99, depending on size.

1st: What is the tentative release schedule?

Tommy: That is not set in stone as of yet.

1st: Is there a way for hardcore AC fans to order all 10 books in a bundle?

Tommy: As of now, no, although we are considering introducing a possible subscription service around the AC and other imprints we have planned. This is, however, also still in the planning stages.

Valiant Unleashes the Powerhouse Debut of 2017 with X-O MANOWAR #1 – An Epic New Ongoing Series Coming in March!

First Comics News - Tue, 12/06/2016 - 04:34


Valiant is proud to announce the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of AN EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and an all-star arsenal of the most formidable visual storytellers in comics today – including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn), Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) – that together will span the series’ first year in 2017 and beyond!

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon starts here on March 22nd, 2017 with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

“Matt Kindt is a genius-level creator and, with X-O MANOWAR, he’s tapping into the essential core of our most iconic character to deliver something more ambitious, more far-reaching, and more fantastic than anything Valiant has ever attempted before,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “This year marks X-O Manowar’s 25th anniversary, but, instead of falling back into nostalgia, we’re taking Aric into uncharted territory – with five of comics’ greatest artistic talents at the helm, no less. This is a premier team that has some truly stunning turns in store – and, when X-O Manowar emerges on the other side, he will be looking at a very different and much larger Valiant Universe.”

In the wake of “SOLDIER”’s staggering assault in issues #1-3, X-O MANOWAR then continues in 2017 and beyond as a superstar cast of Valiant’s most acclaimed artistic talents chart Aric’s path from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH for a vicious, year-long journey of bone and bloodshed born from the battlefields of a herculean alien empire:


MARCH 2017


JUNE 2017







“X-O MANOWAR #1 is not just the biggest book Valiant will be publishing in 2017; it might just be the biggest book we’ve ever published, period,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “With five sets of creators working concurrently across more than a year’s worth of the series, we’re building what will be the bedrock for Valiant’s next phase. But we’re not content to rest there. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling a simply massive slate of surprises that are going to add extra fuel to X-O MANOWAR’s fire in comics, video games, and even film. 2017 will be the year of X-O MANOWAR not just for Valiant, but for the entire comics industry.”

Since debuting in 1992, X-O Manowar has endured as one of the best-selling and most popular comic book creations of the past 25 years, with almost 10 million comics sold and contributions from a seminal roster of creative luminaries including current Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada (Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil), former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter (Avengers), and comics legends Barry Windsor-Smith (Conan the Barbarian, Uncanny X-Men) and Bob Layton (Iron Man). After returning to the forefront of Valiant’s publishing line with a chart-topping, multiple sold-out series by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Flash) and Eisner Award winner Cary Nord (Conan, Star Wars) in 2012, X-O Manowar anchored the resurgence of the Valiant Universe and went onto become one of the best-selling and longest running superhero series of the modern era, earning a multitude of awards and critical accolades from the industry’s most prestigious outlets in the process.

The biggest Valiant debut of all time begins on March 22nd in X-O MANOWAR #1! Join master storytellers Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello as they prepare for war alongside Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, and Mico Suayan in the pages of the year’s most essential ongoing series debut – featuring covers by Valiant-exclusive superstar Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), blockbuster artist Kenneth Rocafort (Inhumans vs. X-Men), Harvey Award-nominated artist Mico Suayan (Thor), Eisner Award-nominated artist J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), and rising star Monica Palosz (Divinity III: Stalinverse)!
