Comic Book Theme- Valiant Entertainment
In addition to announcing the lineup release date, Vans Warped Tour unveiled the artwork theme for 2017. This year Vans Warped Tour forged a partnership with Valiant Entertainment to its award-winning library of comic book superheroes on the road and into an artwork and branding collaboration spanning the 2017 summer season.
“For 22 years, the Vans Warped Tour has been such a great platform for bands, brands, and creative minds,” said Vans Warped Tour® Founder Kevin Lyman. “It’s always fun to be able to do collaborations, and this partnership with Valiant Entertainment is very special from a creative standpoint.”
Multiple fan-favorite characters from Valiant’s 2,000-plus-strong library will make Warped Tour history as the centerpieces of the 2017 tour’s “comic book” theme. All summer long, Valiant’s most iconic heroes – including X-O Manowar, Faith, Bloodshot, Livewire, Ninjak, and more – will adorn posters, promotional pieces, merchandise, and more at over 40 tour dates across the United States. The 2017 Vans Warped Tour® artwork was designed by acclaimed Valiant comic book artist Kano.
Russell A. Brown, President of Consumer Products, Promotions & ad Sales for Valiant Entertainment stated, “This is a groundbreaking partnership on many levels, and we’re honored and excited to call the Vans Warped Tour our newest partner. The Vans Warped Tour is an institution, and comics are the next logical extension of their hugely influential footprint. There’s a huge reciprocity between music and comics, and we were happy to find that there are just as many fans in their camp as there are in ours. We look forward to doing awesome things together in 2017 and beyond.”
