Valiant Entertainment has experienced much success with their X-O Manowar crossover event Armor Hunters this year, with issue #2 of the 4-issue series already selling out and various other titles with crossover issues going to second printings. In light of this, Valiant announced this week a final conclusion to the series in a one-shot epilogue form titled Armor Hunters: Aftermath will be released this October. The one-shot will feature the same popular creative team working on the current Armor Hunters series including writer Robert Venditti (X-O Manowar, Green Lantern) and artist CAFU (Unity).
In the official press release from Valiant this week, Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce said:
“With rave reviews for each installment thus far and the fastest sell-outs we’ve ever seen occurring at a rapid clip across multiple issues, Armor Hunters is shaping up to be nothing short of a phenomenon. Robert Venditti, Doug Braithwaite, Matt Kindt and every other participating creator have outdone themselves at each turn, building a truly earth-shaking crossover event perfect for new fans and longtime readers alike, but the stakes are only getting bigger, and ‘Armor Hunters: Aftermath #1’ is where we’ll finally see how the battle waged has not only affected X-O Manowar and Unity, but Bloodshot, Harbinger, and other titles from throughout the Valiant publishing line.”
“Armor Hunters: Aftermath #1” is due in stores some time in October although Valiant has not released an official date as of yet.
