First Look: ARMOR HUNTERS #1 – ROBERT VENDITTI and DOUG BRAITHWAITE Launch X-O MANOWAR into the VALIANT Crossover Epic of 2014!

AH_001_CHROMIUM_MOLINA

 

On June 11th, Earth will be the greatest hunt of all!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s action-packed summer crossover event by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (Unity, Justice)! Featuring an armor-plated, wraparound Chromium cover by red-hot artist Jorge Molina (X-Men), this is the best chance yet to jump into the world of Valiant’s chart-topping heroes – just as X-O Manowar goes to head-to-head with a team of hardened hunter-killers with a closely guarded link to the very origins of his armor.

AH_001_VARIANT_BRAITHWAITEWhen 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.

“The Hunters have been hardened by a long and difficult campaign against the Manowar armors,” writer Robert Venditti told USA Today. “They don’t come to Earth to make friends or forge alliances. They come to finish the fight.”

In the tradition of the universe-shaking HARBINGER WARS, Valiant’s biggest heroes begin the year’s blockbuster crossover event right here in ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) – and then launch the resistance against the world’s first full-scale cosmic threat with new arcs beginning in UNITY #8 and X-O MANOWAR #26 in June; and ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3) and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3) beginning in July – each featuring one of five wraparound Chromium covers by some of the biggest talents in comics today!

AH_001_VARIANT_HAIRSINERetailers will be eligible to “Unlock Chromium” based on their orders of ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4), UNITY #8, X-O MANOWAR #26, ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 (of 3), and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 (of 3). After “unlocking” each separate title, qualifying retailers may order as many Chromium editions of the corresponding title as they like. Retailers be advised: due to the lead time needed to manufacture this special cover process, print runs for all five ARMOR HUNTERS CHROMIUM EDITIONS have already been set. Supplies are robust but limited, and allocations may occur. If allocations do occur, they will be made based on initial orders.

This summer, bend the knee…or take the head when Valiant brings the deadly legacy of the X-O Manowar armor down full bore on planet Earth, beginning on June 11th in ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4)!

HAR_022_COVER_WALSHValiant is proud to present an advance preview of HARBINGER #22 – the FIRST ISSUE of DEATH OF A RENEGADE, a devastating new turning point for Valiant’s acclaimed superhero series from New York Times best-selling creators Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars, Unknown Soldier) and Clayton Henry (Harbinger Wars, Incredible Hercules)! Peter. Kris. Flamingo. Torque. Zephyr. Anyone can be killed – and, on April 23rd, one of the Renegades’s own will begin an inescapable collision course toward the ultimate sacrifice.

Peter Stanchek and his wayward team of teenage Renegades thought they had found freedom. They thought they could get their old lives back. They thought they could bring down Toyo Harada and the Harbinger Foundation. They were wrong. And, soon, one of them will die.

“It’s not hyperbole to say that EVERYTHING will change after this,” Joshua Dysart told USA Today. “People say that, but in the past we’ve proven that we mean it. And this time I think people will be very surprised as to what’s going to happen in this book.”

Jump on board the series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls “the crown jewel of Valiant’s line-up” with DEATH OF A RENEGADE, on April 23rd in HARBINGER #22 – the opening chapter of the most important Harbinger story ever told…and the beginning of a milestone moment that will define everything that follows in its wake.
