Valiant’s Armor Hunters and Rai gets a 2nd Printing

                             

The VALIANT FIRST initiative is starting off the summer in a big, big way!

Valiant is proud to announce that two of June’s most in-demand new releases – ARMOR HUNTERS #1 (of 4) and RAI #2 – have both sold out at the distributor level and will soon return to store shelves with second printings on July 9th, right alongside ARMOR HUNTERS #2 (of 4) and RAI #3!

First, witness the brutal beginning of Valiant’s blockbuster summer crossover in the ARMOR HUNTERS #1 SECOND PRINTING VARIANT! From superstar creators Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and Doug Braithwaite (Unity, Justice), start reading here as X-O Manowar leads Valiant’s most formidable against Earth’s first full-scale cosmic threat…the relentless alien strike team known only as the ARMOR HUNTERS! They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar armor’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking our world with it.

In the far future of 4001 A.D., Japan is a single endless city-state, governed by a benevolent artificial intelligence and policed by one lone enforcer – the mysterious Rai, spirit guardian of the rising sun. But, soon, a single bullet will shatter the peace it has taken 2,000 years to secure… This July, discover why there is nothing else in comics quite like RAI!
