All-New ARMOR HUNTERS Previews: ARMOR HUNTERS #1 | UNITY #8 – Coming in June!

AH_001_COVER_MOLINAThis June, Earth will be the greatest hunt of all when VALIANT FIRST unleashes the FIRST ISSUE of 2014’s must-read crossover event – ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) – from superstar creators Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice)! Then, Valiant’s hardest-hitting team of heroes join the fight in UNITY #8 – the beginning of an all-new story arc at the epicenter of the ARMOR HUNTERS‘ onslaught by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and acclaimed artist Stephen Segovia (Superior Carnage)!

With each issue featuring one of five limited edition Chromium covers by some of the biggest talents in comics today – including Jorge Molina (X-Men), Mico Suayan (Ultimate Cataclysm), Clayton Crain (RAI), Philip Tan (Green Lantern), and Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX) – each armor-plated ARMOR HUNTERS issue represents an all-new jumping-on point for Valiant’s star-studded crossover epic.

Retailers 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 

UNITY_008_COVER_SUAYAN

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.

In 2014, there are six new reasons to read Valiant FIRST! All summer long, Valiant will be rocketing to the top of your read pile with VALIANT FIRST – an all-new initiative unleashing a major #1 issue each month from May onward by some of the most talented creators in comics. RAI #1 in May. ARMOR HUNTERS #1 in June. ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #1 and ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #1 in July. THE DELINQUENTS #1 in August. THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE #1 in September. A combination of new ongoing titles, unprecedented crossover collisions, and high-profile mini-series, these are the titles that will have you reading VALIANT FIRST when you head home from the comic shop!

HARBINGER #25 and HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 – A Brand New Era Begins This Summer!

HAR_025_COVER_A_SUAYANSpinning out of the deadly consequences of “Death of a Renegade” in next week’s HARBINGER #22, Valiant is proud to announce two major milestones coming this summer for the wildly acclaimed ongoing series HARBINGER by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart!

As detailed this weekend at WonderCon 2014, the title will reach its long-planned finale with July’s HARBINGER #25 – an oversized, anniversary milestone issue featuring the final chapter of Dysart’s long-running confrontation between Harbinger’s super-powered team of teenage Renegades and their omega-powered ex-mentor, telekinetic zealot Toyo Harada.

“I’ve always tried to remind readers that these are kids and they’re in over their heads and they’ve never been very good at what they do. There’s just repercussions to this kind of behavior even if you have superpowers,” writer Joshua Dysart told Comic Book Resources. “That’s what we’re moving toward, we’re moving toward that final statement – really saying that strongly for the reader, ‘This is what the story was always about.’ It was about inexperience in the face of great danger.”

Clocking in at a massive 48 pages, HARBINGER #25 will also feature the return of original series artist Khari Evans (Archer & Armstrong) – plus all-new stories and artwork from an incredible cast of talents, including Barry Kitson (Adventures of Superman), Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), Lucy Knisley (Relish: My Life in the Kitchen), Riley Rossmo (Bedlam), Ron Wimberly (Prince of Cats), and many, many more.

HAR_OMEGAS_001_COVER_LAROSAThen, in August – out of the ashes of HARBINGER #25‘s devastating climax – find out what happens next to the most powerful players in the Harbinger universe as Joshua Dysart and heat-seeking artist Rafa Sandoval (Red Hood and the Outlaws) pick up of the pieces with an all-new, three-issue mini-series – HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3) – that closes the door on one generation of Harbinger Renegades…and prepares the foundation for another.

“[HARBINGER: OMEGAS is] about both the surviving members of Harbinger and how they move on from the loss and the finality of the event at the end of the Harbinger book; and it’s also about Harada rebranding, changing his empire, dismantling Harada Global HTC and refashioning himself as really, for lack of a better term, what we would see as a more traditional super villain in comics, because he hasn’t been given a choice,” said Dysart. “It’s a bridge story about the change in these environments and how we’re going to get to the next chapter of the Valiant Universe.”

Jump on board the convention-defying series that the Onion/A.V. Club calls “the crown jewel of Valiant’s line-up” with HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3) in August – an all-new starting point that reveals what happens when the full extent of Harada’s secret superhuman empire is exposed to the public, and just the how the surviving members of the Renegades recover from a catastrophic loss that will change their lives… their team… and their destinies forever.

Read Joshua Dysart’s complete interview about HARBINGER #25, HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3), and his future plans for the HARBINGER universe at Comic Book Resources.

ARMOR HUNTERS Brings BLOODSHOT into UNITY #8 – An All-New Arc by MATT KINDT and STEPHEN SEGOVIA Beginning in June!

UNITY_008_COVER_SUAYAN

Valiant’s all-star superteam is getting a new recruit!

Valiant is proud to announce that Bloodshot will join X-O Manowar, Ninjak, the Eternal Warrior, and Livewire as the newest member of the Unity team in UNITY #8 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new, standalone story arc spinning directly out of the pages of ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4)!

From New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Rai, Mind MGMT) and red-hot artist Stephen Segovia (Superior Carnage), jump on board here as the deadly nanite-enhanced commando known only as Bloodshot steps out of the pages of his solo series and into the ranks of Valiant’s best-selling superteam for a perilous new mission at the epicenter of the ARMOR HUNTERS’ alien onslaught!

UNITY_009_COVER_SUAYANWhen an ultra-powerful threat from deep space begins brutalizing Earth, humanity’s first response is – who else? – the fearless team of heroes, soldiers, and short fuses called Unity! Now it’s down to Ninjak, Eternal Warrior and Livewire – plus the walking weapon of mass destruction called Bloodshot – to lead the assault on the ARMOR HUNTERS’ frontline…even if they die trying!

“The thing I love about the [ARMOR HUNTERS] crossover — and good lord, I never thought I’d say I liked a crossover — is that it’s organic. [ARMOR HUNTERS writer Robert Venditti] had this great idea for a big story — and then we were invited to join it if we thought it would be something interesting… So Bloodshot was sort of a natural fit for this arc,” writer Matt Kindt told IGN.com.

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.

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

To find out more about what ARMOR HUNTERS holds for X-O Manowar, Bloodshot and Unity, join us this Saturday for the VALIANT COMICS: INSIDE VALIANT FIRST panel presentation – only at WonderCon Anaheim 2014!

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)!

From master storyteller Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, Red Lanterns) and acclaimed artist Valentine De Landro (X-Factor), start reading here on April 30th with a brand new introduction to the series that Bloody Disgusting calls “infectious” as the newly anointed Shadowman, Jack Boniface, meets his End Times head on!
