New York, NY (June 6, 2019) – Valiant is thrilled to announce the KILLERS #1-5 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE, the latest in the publisher's initiative to allow readers to order a complete story arc or an entire run of a limited series in advance. Each KILLERS Pre-Order Edition issue will feature a cover rendered by comics luminary Whilce Portacio (Uncanny X-Men, The Punisher, Wetworks) and contain an extra eight pages of bonus material.

Written by B. Clay Moore (SAVAGE, Hawaiian Dick) and drawn by Fernando Dagnino (Superman, Suicide Squad), the Bundle is available to pre-order now at local comic book shops by the final order cutoff (FOC) date of Monday, July 8th. Issue #1 is set to debut on Wednesday, July 31st.

In KILLERS, five elite assassins are recruited by their former sensei to perform a deadly task for him, but what does he want from them, and what do they gain from helping him?

Released monthly from July 2019 through November 2019, each 40-page PRE-ORDER EDITION issue comes packed with cool extras—including creator commentary, behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of the comics, character designs, and cover galleries—that can't be found anywhere else.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
