ARMOR HUNTERS #1 – X-O MANOWAR and UNITY Spearhead the Valiant Event of 2014!

ARMOR-HUNTERS_PROMO_MOLINA_001

 

Next summer…Earth will be the greatest hunt of all.

The most ambitious crossover event of 2014 begins in ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new, four-issue mini-series by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (Unity, Justice)!

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 incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

“2014 will be a year of all-new jumping-on points for Valiant, and ARMOR HUNTERS #1 is the perfect place to start. Robert Venditti and Doug Braithwaite are two of the finest storytellers in the medium. They’ve shaped the Valiant Universe, and we couldn’t be happier to have them architecting ARMOR HUNTERS,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons.

“X-O Manowar is about to find himself at the center of a firestorm embroiling all of Valiant’s most powerful heroes. Believe us when we say that, in an era of events, the scale, scope and intensity of ARMOR HUNTERS will be the biggest and most daring undertaking we’ve ever attempted,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.

ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) kicks off Valiant’s landmark 2014 crossover event in June. Then, ARMOR HUNTERS continues with two brand new story arcs beginning in UNITY #8 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT, Justice League of America) and rising star Diego Bernard (Eternal Warrior); and X-O MANOWAR #26 by Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (Conan). And look for even more Valiant heroes to join the fight against Valiant’s first full-scale alien incursion as the summer continues. Further details will follow in 2014.

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!
