According to Valiant media release, ‘Fans, take note: Harbinger Wars 2 #0 is a standalone thematic prologue to the events of Valiant’s upcoming summer event.  This limited-edition zero issue release is specifically designed to stand apart from the rest of the series, and the events contained within it will not be essential to understanding the rest of the Harbinger Wars 2 event.’

hwpg1Valiant says this is the biggest and most ambitious undertaking to date, and it starts right here, with a completely self-contained introduction to the highest stakes conflict that the Valiant Universe has ever witnessed!  As the march towards Harbinger Wars 2 builds over the coming months, a new and terrible force is about to reveal itself to the heroes of the Valiant Universe!  Harbinger Wars 2 #0 gives comics fans worldwide their first glimpse of the cataclysmic clash that is to come!


Featuring the Harbinger Renegades, H.A.R.D. Corps, and surprise guests assembled from throughout the Valiant Universe, Harbinger Wars 2 #0, has been produced as a reward for Valiant’s most hardcore, longtime fans, and the events of the issue will be entirely self-contained.  As such, Harbinger Wars 2 #0, will enhance, but not directly impact comprehension of, the primary Harbinger Wars 2 ‘seismic‘ event coming soon to comic shops everywhere!
hwpg3On May 2nd, 2018, some of the most powerful creative minds in comics today, New York Times best-selling writer, Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar, Divinity), and Academy Award nominee, Eric Heisserer (Secrets Weapons), join the powerhouse artistic team of Tomás Giorello (X-O Manowar, Ninja-K), and Raul Allén (Secret Weapons) for the  Valiant’s biggest event to date in Harbinger Wars 2 #1 (Limited Series 1-4)!
Harbinger Wars 2 will utilize an expansive, new and ‘never-before-attempted‘ comics format, each issue of the HW2 event will come fully loaded with 48 pages of content and two complete, full-length 22-page stories chronicling dueling fronts in the nationwide battle that will soon consume the Valiant Universe’s most powerful forces.  The first, by writer Matt Kindt and artist Tomás Giorello, the creative team behind the successful relaunch of launch X-O Manowar, one of the most successful independent series of 2017, will feature the head on collision of the Harbinger Renegades and the newly returned X-O Manowar!  The second, by writer Eric Heisserer and artist Raúl Allén with Patricia Martín, reuniting the all-star creators behind Secret Weapons, one of 2017’s most successful independent limited series, will thrust Livewire and her new team of recruits into the center of a power struggle with the potential to tear America apart!

For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as ‘psiots‘, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost.  Once, their existence was known only to a select few and now, the revelation that thousands of these latent ‘harbingers‘, secretly live among us with the potential to become active at any moment and has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point!

Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as OMEN has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all superhuman, psiot, threats to the homeland.  H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.


In the east, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Stanchek, is leading his band of Harbinger Renegades across the country, activating any potential ‘psiots‘ willing to join them, and building an insurrection force of ultra-powerful and unwieldy new powers that will soon bring war to OMEN’s doorstep, while the unstoppable force known as X-O Manowar raging back to Earth!

While in the west, Livewire , the telekinetic ‘technopath‘ with the ability to bend machines and computers to her will, will be forced to choose between her former allies, or her newfound team of Secret Weapons.  As the situation escalates beyond human control, the United States will be plunged into darkness from coast to coast, launching Bloodshot and Ninjak into a dangerous mission to neutralize their one time teammate and setting the stage for the most shocking, violent, and consequential clash of powers ever witnessed in the history of the Valiant Universe!
