Following the best-selling success of last year’s Harbinger Wars crossover, jump into the fight behind X-O Manowar’s first event mini-series right here on Free Comic Book Day with the FCBD 2014 ARMOR HUNTERS SPECIAL – featuring an all-star roster of superstar Valiant talents including CAFU, Joshua Dysart, Trevor Hairsine, Bryan Hitch, Matt Kindt, Peter Milligan, Cary Nord, Fred Van Lente, and many more!

When Aric of Dacia returned to Earth with the stolen X-O Manowar armor of an alien race, he thought he finally found a weapon to guard the peace and kingdom he’d struggled so long to secure. But now, a relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the armor and all like it – have found their final target. The ARMOR HUNTERS are coming. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculably destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.
