Valiant’s Unity #8 Preview

Apr 17, 2014

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 (RaiMind 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!

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 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 #26ARMOR 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!
