As revealed today by the Associated Press, the must-read comic book event of the year is UNITY #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of a new monthly series written by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT, Justice League of America) with art by comics superstar Doug Braithwaite (Justice, Journey Into Mystery) and colorist Brian Reber (Harbinger Wars, Shadowman)!

To kill a king…he has created an army. The world’s most dangerous man, Toyo Harada, has been struck by the one thing he never thought possible – fear. Halfway across the globe, a new power threatens to topple modern civilization and, to preempt the cataclysm that is to come, Harada will unite the most lethal, most volatile, most unforgiving team the world has ever known – UNITY. Their mission: defeat the warrior king armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon. Kill X-O Manowar!

“UNITY is the single biggest thing that Valiant has thrown its weight behind since the launch of the company with X-O Manowar #1,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “If you’ve heard the buzz about Valiant, if you’ve seen the incredible reviews, but have yet to try one of our titles, UNITY #1 is the perfect starting point. Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite are crafting an incredibly daring, action-packed epic from page one. UNITY is the very definition of can’t miss comics.”

In anticipation of launching the publisher’s first milestone super-team title, both Doug Braithwaite and Brian Reber have signed Valiant-exclusive contracts, joining Cary Nord (X-O Manowar) and Joshua Dysart (Harbinger, Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps) on Valiant’s growing roster of exclusive talent.

In another first for Valiant, UNITY #1 will be 100% returnable for qualifying retailers and feature five limited Pullbox Exclusive Variants (available to fans who pre-order with their local retailer) from a “murderers’s row” of comics all-stars – Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates, Age of Ultron), J.G. Jones (Final Crisis, Wanted), Travel Foreman (Animal Man), Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) and Clayton Crain (Ghost Rider, Carnage).

Legendary artist and industry icon Neal Adams (Green Lantern/Green Arrow) will also contribute an incentive cover for issue #1.
