Eternal Warrior Trademark Update

Posted by

A month or so ago, I wrote about a book that had been solicited from Image Comics, The Timeless Adventures of the Eternal Warrior. The title of this book is clearly in conflict with the Eternal Warrior trademark registered to Valiant Entertainment. After this was solicited, there was some speculation amongst Valiant fans that noticed this solicitation.

If this book were to be published, it would be quite a problem for Valiant Entertainment, showing that others are infringing on their protected trademarks, without them doing anything to counter that. Since some people have non-valiantly speculated that Valiant Entertainment is a dead company (because they have been very quiet), they thought that this might not be addressed by them.

It turns out that Image Comics has changed the title of the book to The Eternal Conflicts of the Cosmic Warrior. I wasn’t able to find any information about why this was changed, but it makes sense that it was changed because it was brought to their attention that this title is a trademark infringement.

I’m pretty sure that the use of this title was unintentional, and in fact, I ordered this book to check it out. Maybe the use of the title was good, because it drew some extra attention to the book!

Interesting stuff!
