Valiant’s big crossover event, Unity, by Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite, will debut with initial orders of more than 68,500 copies, cementing its status as one of 2013’s highest selling new series debuts. Unity will be the book to get come November 13th.

For this the two issues of UNITY’s first story arc, December’s UNITY #2 and January’s UNITY #3 will now be 100% returnable for retailers who match or exceed 50% of their orders for UNITY #1. As previously announced, UNITY #1 will be limited to a first printing only and will not go back to press following the issue’s November 13th release. “Based on pre-orders alone, UNITY #1 has already outranked a slew of other recent success stories including East of West #1 Hawkeye #1, Lazarus #1, Manhattan Projects #1, Pretty Deadly #1, Saga #1, Satellite Sam #1, Sex Criminals #1, Ten Grand #1, Trillium #1, Velvet #1, The Wake #1, and the list goes on,” said Valiant Sales Manager Atom! Freeman. That’s very impressive.

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 unforgiving team the world has ever known – UNITY. Their mission: defeat the threat responsible for the destruction of MI-6, the decimation of an alien world, and the occupation of Eastern Europe… Unseat the warrior king armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon… Kill X-O Manowar!
