Valiant Promotional Advertisements

There are a lot of great Valiant images out there.
You can find them on the covers and in the stories...
But there a quite a few great images that could only be found
in the advertisements!

Quite often the advertisements for Valiant comics were printed
months before the comics were released.
The plans for covers sometimes changed between the ad and the release.
Some art was drawn for the ads, but was never published in a comic.
Other times you can recognize your favorite comic covers,
but the colors could be completely different!

Here are just a few of the promotional advertisements that were
found mainly in "Previews Catalog" in the early 1990's.
