Dane Cook teases meeting with Valiant Comics

In an effort to surprise comic book readers and fans of stand-up comedy, Dane Cook has revealed on social media that he had some sort of encounter with Brave comics. The artist wrote in a tweet, “Great meeting @ValiantComics! Tons of wild and wonderful possibilities. Nothing geeks me out more than a killer origin story!” No further context was provided by Cook or Valiant, who retweeted the message to their followers. Is Cook in line to write a comic for the publisher? Is he being recruited to develop a movie? Does he intend to buy the publisher outright? We have no idea!

As readers may recall, the end of 2022 brought news that the Valiant publishing business was not in a great place. The company fired several editorial staff in December, including former publisher Fred Pierce, who had held the role since 2009 when the company went through a massive relaunch. Valiant has been home to characters like XO Manowar, Quantum & Woody, Harbinger, Faith, Ninjak, Rai, Shadowman, Archer & Armstrong, and Bloodshot, and they’ve been a cult favorite ever since.

Valiant first came onto the scene in the 1990s, publishing Gold Key characters such as Magnus, Robot Fighter, Turok, and Solar. , Barry Windsor-Smith, Joe Quesada and Christopher Priest, with some of their success in the late 1990s and early 2000s coming from video games based on their characters.

Renewed interest in the characters thanks to the rebooted line in 2012 resulted in feature film and television deals over the years. At one point, plans for a full cinematic universe ala Marvel Studios were considered at one point for the Valiant characters, but the only adaptation to make it to the screen was the Vin Diesel starring Bloodshotwhich was released in theaters days before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the country and the world.

In recent years, Valiant has continued to publish comics, announcing yet another reboot of some titles for 2022 in February. However, after news of the publisher’s layoffs, only two comics were published by Valiant in the last two months and only one scheduled for the month of February.
