Valiant Entertainment Renews Distribution Agreement with comiXology, Expands to Amazon’s Kindle Store

Announced today in New York, Valiant Entertainment has renewed their distribution agreement with digital comic seller comiXology. The indie publisher will also expand its distribution by reaching an agreement with Amazon and their Kindle Store. The timing couldn’t be any better as Valiant looks to ring in “The Summer of 4001 A.D.,” a Valiant Universe-wide event of epic proportions. Plus beginning in July, the publisher will begin releasing brand-new series and characters on a monthly basis as the Universe expands with the next generation of superheroes.

Here’s the official press release from Valiant:
