For many months I have been broadcasting both the upcoming first issues for the Marvel Comics and DC Comics lines and with our revising the way that the PiercingMetal.com website is entertaining its readers I am proud to add similar posts that outline what you can count on coming from the folks over at Valiant Comics. As you have seen with the other posts, I will be presenting the artwork and a brief from the official press copy that I get sent and here we go with two upcoming mini-series. Each of these titles will run for three issues.
Armor Hunters: Bloodshot #1: (Writer: Joe Harris, Penciller: Trevor Hairsine). The hunters become the hunted! With the major capitals of Earth under siege by the Armor Hunters, the world’s most dangerous weapon has decided to come in from the cold – and into the service of the top-secret Military Extraterrestrial Reconnaissance Outpost (M.E.R.O.)! But when one of the Armor Hunters’ own stages an extraterrestrial jailbreak inside of M.E.R.O.’s fortified command center, the nanite-enhanced commando known as Bloodshot will become the last thing standing between the galaxy’s most feared team of hunter-killers and a classified arsenal of secret weapons far too deadly for human hands! (c/o Valiant Press Office).
Armor Hunters: Harbinger #1: (Writer: Joshua Dysart, Penciler: Robert Gill) Earth is besieged by alien enforcers, and some of the most powerful people on the planet…are the kids! The Harbinger Renegades are still reeling from a tragic death in their ranks, but in the face of monumental destruction they’ll find unlikely allies in a fellow group of super-powerful teenagers. But is Generation Zero here to help…or are they just looking out for themselves? (c/o Valiant Press Office).
PiercingMetal Thoughts: For starters the fact that these awesome covers are going to come out in a chromium edition just raises my interest in them since I always loved just how vibrant a comic cover looked when done in this fashion but at the end of the day it is all about the story and the moving forward of these characters in their own universe. Now Bloodshot was always a favorite of mine in the Valiant Universe of many years ago so anything he is involved in piques my interest and while Harbinger was often lost on me, they surely had their following and impact on the larger goings on across the lives of these characters. I have some catching up to do so will be looking into some trade paperback editions of the more recent stuff along with adding these new issues to my collection. Each of these two mini-series sure sound like they will keep up on the edge of our favorite comic reading seat.
