VALIANT Unveils 45 Retailer Customized FCBD 2014 ARMOR HUNTERS SPECIAL Covers for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!

Free Comic Book Day Valiant

With Free Comic Book Day 2014 just two weeks away, Valiant is proud to announce that 45 retailers nationwide have signed on to produce exclusive promotional covers for Valiant’s biggest FCBD release ever – the FCBD 2014 ARMOR HUNTERS SPECIAL!

“Valiant has always been an ardent supporter of Free Comic Book Day, but this year is, by far, our biggest yet. We were absolutely blown away by the orders on both our FCBD titles. But we were even more surprised by the number of retail partners that took us up on our offer to promote the release of ARMOR HUNTERS at their individual stores with customized cover offerings,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “We know that readers who try just one Valiant comic often stick around for more – and Free Comic Book Day is the best time of all to introduce our characters to a new and eager audience.”

Available in participating stores everywhere on May 3rd, 2014, Valiant’s FCBD 2014 ARMOR HUNTERS SPECIAL is the perfect place to jump on the board the crossover event of the summer with a special, advance look inside June’s ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) by superstar creators Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and 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.

Plus: look for artwork and interviews from X-O MANOWAR, RAI, THE DELINQUENTS, THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE, and much more! Learn everything you need about ARMOR HUNTERS and the rest of the VALIANT FIRST publishing initiative right here on Free Comic Book Day inside the FCBD 2014 ARMOR HUNTERS SPECIAL!

Everything you need to know about the Valiant Universe in 2014 and beyond can be found right here in the first official Valiant Handbook release…ever! Featuring artwork from a “murderer’s row” of comic’s brightest talents – Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Clayton Henry, Bryan Hitch, Esad Ribic, and many, many more!

ALEX + ADA #1
A sci-fi drama set in the near future and perfect for fans of the TV show Fringe and the Spike Jonze film Her. The last thing in the world Alex wanted was an X5, the latest in realistic androids. But when Ada is dropped into his life, will Alex keep her? Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148356.

BLACK SCIENCE #1
Grant McKay, former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, has finally done the impossible: he has deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality. But what lies beyond the veil is not epiphany, but chaos. Now Grant and his team are lost, living ghosts shipwrecked on an infinite ocean of alien worlds, barreling through the long-forgotten, ancient, and unimaginable dark realms. The only way is forward. The only question is how far are they willing to go, and how much can they endure, to get home again? Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148357.

DEADLY CLASS #1
Welcome to the most brutal high school on Earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates’ poison. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148358.

EAST OF WEST #1
He has been called Abaddon. The Reaper. Fool’s Bane. The Grey Walker. You speak his name in hushed tones, if at all. You fear him and all he represents. He is the ultimate state of all things. He is Death. But, in the past, Death found peace. For his betrayal, the rest of the Four Horsemen snatched happiness away from him forever. Now, Death rides with Crow and Wolf in search of those who wronged him. We would tell you to pray, but it wouldn’t do any good. You have earned what is coming to you. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148359.

LAZARUS #1
In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law. A handful of Families rule, jealously guarding what they have and exploiting the Waste who struggle to survive in their domains. Forever Carlyle defends her family’s holdings through deception and force as their protector, their Lazarus. Shot dead defending the family home, Forever’s day goes downhill from there… Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148360.

MANIFEST DESTINY #1
In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out on an expedition to explore the uncharted American frontier. This is the story of what they discovered lurking in the wilds… Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148361.

PRETTY DEADLY #1
Sandman meets Preacher in PRETTY DEADLY, where Death’s daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her tale of retribution is as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148362.

SEX CRIMINALS #1
Suzie’s a normal girl with an extraordinary ability: when she has sex, she stops time. One night she meets Jon… who has the same gift. And so they do what any other sex-having, time-stopping, couple would do: they rob banks. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148363.

VELVET #1
When the world’s best secret agent is killed, Velvet Templeton, the Personal Assistant to the Director of the Agency, is drawn off her desk and back into the field for the first time in nearly 20 years… and is immediately caught in a web of mystery, murder and high-octane action. Sexy and provocative, VELVET is a dark twist on the spy genre. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148364.

ZERO #1
Edward Zero is the perfect execution machine—a spy who breaks the rules to get things done. When a stolen device appears in the center of a long-running conflict, Zero comes to retrieve it. The problem is, the device is inside a living, breathing, bio-modified terrorist and there’s an entire army after it. Image Firsts edition available with Diamond code FEB148365.
