EDITOR’S NOTE: Once I get through the HARBINGER titles, I most likely will be following X-O MANOWAR and the new ARMOR HUNTERS series. You can pick up a free preview of some of these books during Free Comic Book Day this Saturday. Details below . . . . .

On June 11th, Earth will be the greatest hunt of all!
Valiant is proud to debut the official video trailer for ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of VALIANT FIRST’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).
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.
On June 11th, 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 in ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4). Then, Valiant's most formidable heroes launch the resistance against the ARMOR HUNTERS' alien incursion with new, standalone 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) in July – each featuring one of five wraparound Chromium shelf covers by some of the biggest talents in comics today.
And that's just the beginning because, 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.
