This summer, Earth will be the greatest hunt of all when VALIANT FIRST unleashes the first issue of 2014’s must-read crossover event – ARMOR HUNTERS – from superstar creators Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and Doug Braithwaite (Unity)!

A relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the X-O Manowar armor and all like it – have finally found their last target. 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 summer’s blockbuster 18-issue 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!

ARMOR HUNTERS descends on Valiant’s all-star superteam in an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and red-hot artist Stephen Segovia (Superior Carnage)!

When 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 some special surprise recruits – to lead the assault on the Armor Hunters’ frontline...even if they die trying!

*Design Variant by CLAYTON CRAIN

Armor Hunters Variant by TREVOR HAIRSINE

ARMOR HUNTERS unleashes an all-new starting point for the world’s most wanted hero – X-O Manowar – right here with a brand new story arc by Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Flash) and Diego Bernard (Eternal Warrior)!

Abducted from his own time by a vicious alien race, the courageous Visigoth warrior known as Aric of Dacia spent years in slavery among the stars before escaping with his captors’ most feared weapon – the X-O Manowar armor. Now, stranded in the modern day, the world’s most primitive man also just happens to wield its most powerful weapon. But what is the X-O Manowar armor? And who before Aric of Dacia dared to wield its incalculable power? The ARMOR HUNTERS hold the key to the armor’s untold history and – one way or another – they’ll crush anything that dares threaten their secret.

Very, very excited for this event.

Posted by Hawkguy

When does Harbinger join the event?

Posted by UlquiorraSchiffer

@hawkguy: Harbinger and Bloodshot crossovers start in July. Three issues each ending in September.

I'm getting a Star Wars vibe from this for some reason...

Posted by Nahuel

I think I'll pass most of the event, except for Unity. It's too expensive even for standard covers.

Let's just hope the story in Unity keeps self contained.

@nahuel: It is, Valiant always keep their event books self contained

Awh yeah, Valiant is so damn cool.

Posted by DonFelipe

Am I the only one who doesn't like the "design" covers at all?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

So cool. SO COOL!

Posted by bladewolf

Definitely going to get all 3 series! Loving the Valiant Universe!

Edited by kivatt

@bladewolf: Do you think they will put the whole story arc in a whole collection?

Edited by kivatt

@donfelipe: I think you are. But I can get where you are coming from. A lot of them looks like they have too much going on at one. To me personally I think that the Unity one is the best.

Not sure if we are talking about the same covers here.

I LOVE all of the "hairsine" variants; e.g.:

I don't really like the "design" variants that only show one of the armor hunters and nothing else which I find rather boring; e.g.:

I'm not saying that I don't like the look of these characters and armor hunters respectively but these "design" images look like they belong to the gallery and extra pages at the end of the comic book instead of on the front cover.

X-O Manowar armor > Iron Man suit.

Your beloved giant robot reminds me of Galactus especially on that Hairsine cover that looks super cool by the way.

@donfelipe: Yea they said they wanted a Kirby style design
