Valiant Sets Virtual Portfolio Review Program For New Comic Creators

The pandemic has brought an eclipse on everything (work, production, education, releases, etc) but it took a higher toll on new opportunities for creators to get their work in front of publishers and editors for advice and maybe, for the chance to get published. The golden chance.

As going virtual seems to be the only resort now, Valiant Entertainment has announced a virtual portfolio review program. Running July 9 and 10, Valiant senior editors Heather Antos and Lysa Hawkins will offer 10-minute one-on-one sessions with 20 potential sequential artists, cover artists, colourists, and letterers, chosen from those applying for the program by emailing the address [email protected] with their submission and contact information.

Emails must be received by 9 a.m. PT July 8, with those chosen to participate receiving notification by 7 p.m. PT the day before the review.

“Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce its Virtual Portfolio Review program to nurture aspiring comic book creators, help them grow, and find new voices to work with on future projects. In lieu of open-call portfolio review sessions at conventions, the award-winning publisher will offer digital one-on-one portfolio reviews for aspiring interior artists, cover artists, colorists, and letterers. These virtual one-on-one sessions will take place with senior editors Heather Antos (QUANTUM & WOODY, X-O MANOWAR) or Lysa Hawkins (RAI, BLOODSHOT) and will run for approximately ten minutes. Please read the below information very carefully for submission details, deadlines, and suggestions,” Valiant Entertainment.

“With convention season on pause due to the pandemic, it’s been important to us at Valiant to continue the outreach with both fans and creators alike that we would normally be able to do in person — and that includes one-on-one portfolio reviews with up-and-coming talent,” Antos said in a statement. “Furthermore, we recognize that not every creator out there has the means or ability to travel to conventions, and it’s important to us to be as accessible as possible to those creators looking to get their feet in the door.”
