Valiant is proud to announce that copies of Harbinger Wars 2 #0, a limited-edition prelude to the seismic 2018 crossover event, Harbinger Wars 2, have now shipped directly from Valiant’s NYC headquarters and will soon be arriving in thousands of households worldwide! The title also features a explosive surprise from the Secret Weapons’ creative team!
Available exclusively to fans that redeemed a select set of mail-away coupons in Harbinger Renegade #1-4, Valiant announced that in addition to the standalone limited edition mail away introduction lead story to Harbinger Wars 2, written by New York Times best-selling writer, Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar, Divinity), with artwork from revered industry artist, Doug Braithwaite (X-O Manowar, Armor Hunters), Valiant is also excited to reveal that the exclusive mail away comes with a previously unannounced second feature from the complete Secret Weapons creative team consisting of Academy Award-nominated writer, Eric Heisserer, and Harvey Award-nominated artists, Raúl Allén & Patricia Martín!
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.’
Valiant 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!
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.
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!
May of 2018, this blockbuster comic event of the New Year erupts in full force as X-O Manowar, Livewire, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, Secret Weapons, Ninjak, and a cast of thousands draw their battle lines in Harbinger Wars 2 #1 (1 of 4), featuring covers by renowned artist, J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), and Valiant assures fans that more top talents will soon to be revealed and ComicWatch will be here to keep you updated as we prepare for HW2!
