VALIANT Announces UNITY #1 3-D MOTION RETURNABILITY COVER for Participating Retailers

UNITY_3-D-MOTION_64Valiant is proud to announce the Unity #1 3-D Motion Returnability Cover, an extremely limited incentive cover designed to simulate depth and motion, and specially produced to reward qualifying retailers who continue to support sales of Unity #1 – the sold-out first issue of Valiant’s newest ongoing series from all-star creators Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite, and 2013′s third largest #1 debut from an independent publisher.

Featuring the artwork of Clayton Crain fully realized in three dimensions, the Unity #1 3-D Motion Returnability Cover is the only place to see X-O Manowar, Ninjak, Eternal Warrior and the rest of Valiant’s first landmark superteam in all-out 3-D action!

To kill a king…he has created an army. The world’s most dangerous man, Toyo Harada, has been struck by the one thing he never thought possible – fear. Halfway across the globe, a new power threatens to topple modern civilization and, to preempt the cataclysm that is to come, Harada will unite the most unforgiving team the world has ever known – UNITY. Their mission: defeat the threat responsible for the destruction of MI-6, the decimation of an alien world, and the occupation of Eastern Europe… Unseat the warrior king armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon… Kill X-O Manowar!

“Unity #1 was Valiant’s first experiment with 100% returnability for retailers, and it has been nothing short of a runaway success. As a reward for those retailers that committed to 100% returnability for Valiant’s latest launch title, and remain committed to keeping Unity #1 available to their customers, we’re proud to offer this first-of-its-kind incentive for Valiant as a special thank you to our retail partners,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce.

All retailers who qualified for returnability on Unity #1, placed orders of 100 copies or less (regular, pullbox, and orderall covers), and did not return their entire order, will receive one (1) rare, exclusive Unity #1 3-D Motion Returnability Cover as a ‘thank you’ from Valiant Entertainment.

Retailers who qualified for returnability and placed orders in excess of 100 copies can receive one (1) additional Unity #1 3-D Motion Returnability Cover per every 100 copies of Unity #1 (regular, pullbox, and orderall covers) not returned thereafter.

Retailers take note: Valiant is also offering 100% returnability on orders of Unity #2 and Unity #3 for retailers who meet or exceed 100% of orders for Unity #1. It’s not too late to find out why Unity is one of the year’s most critically revered new series!
