AH_AFTERMATH_001_COVER_BERNARDJust as ARMOR HUNTERS #2 (of 4) arrives in stores to a record-setting sell-out, Valiant is proud to announce a blockbuster new chapter for the summer’s most acclaimed crossover event, ARMOR HUNTERS, and a fleet of brand new second printings to meet demand for X-O Manowar’s epic confrontation with a squadron of alien hunter-killers tied to the very origin of his armor!

This October, the must-read crossover event of the year reaches its milestone conclusion in ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1 – an essential one-shot epilogue to the Armor Hunters’ invasion of Earth by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and red-hot artist CAFU (Unity)! In the devastating wake of ARMOR HUNTERS #4 (of 4), our planet – and its heroes – will be forever changed. Start reading here to discover the new status quo for the world’s most formidable heroes as X-O Manowar, Unity, Bloodshot, and the Harbinger Renegades forge a new frontline of defense for humanity!

“With rave reviews for each installment thus far and the fastest sell-outs we’ve ever seen occurring at a rapid clip across multiple issues, Armor Hunters is shaping up to be nothing short of a phenomenon. Robert Venditti, Doug Braithwaite, Matt Kindt and every other participating creator have outdone themselves at each turn, building a truly earth-shaking crossover event perfect for new fans and longtime readers alike,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “But the stakes are only getting bigger, and ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1 is where we’ll finally see how the battle waged has not only affected X-O Manowar and Unity, but Bloodshot, Harbinger, and other titles from throughout the Valiant publishing line.”

The fallout of the summer’s blistering crossover event starts here and no hero can escape what happens next – only in ARMOR HUNTERS: AFTERMATH #1, on sale in October!
