'''Valiant Comics''' was fomed in 1989 by former Creator/MarvelComics Editor Creator/JimShooter, along with top artists and writers, Valiant was one of the many "creator owned" comic companies that appeared during UsefulNotes/{{the Dark Age|of Comic Books}}. The principal idea behind Valiant was to out-write the competition. It did so by [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructing]] the various aspects of the typical comic book universe as presented by its rivals.
While Creator/{{DC|Comics}}, Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}, and Creator/{{Image|Comics}} focused more on art, Valiant concentrated on aspects like characterization.

Creator/DarkHorseComics recently acquired all the Gold Key properties -- and hired Shooter to manage them -- but, unfortunately, after about 8 issues of each, Dark Horse announced they would be cancelling the line due to low sales, as well as the rights holders wanting too much money.

money. The Gold Key heroes most recently are licensed to Dynamite Entertainment, which has for three years been trying to give them a comeback...and has rebooted them at least three times as the characters keep switching ownership. (Classic Media got bought by DreamWorks Animation, which got purchased by NBC/Universal) This is a factor on why Valiant Entertainment takes a dim view towards trying to obtain characters rights again. Under such conditions it's difficult to get any creative momentum.

* LighterAndSofter: Whereas most incarnations of Ninjak star Colin King, British secret agent ninja, Valiant Heroes 2 went in a different direction. Denny Meechum was a high school student who got magic ninja powers by solving a hidden puzzle in a video game, then had to fight all the villains from said game. KurtBusiek wrote the series in a tone very similar to that of early Spider-Man (Colin King does have a recurring role, but he's not a ninja here).
