Sneak Preview: BLOODSHOT #2

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot #2, from acclaimed writer Duane Swierczynski and the fan favorite artistic duo of Manuel Garcia & Arturo Lozzi!

Waking up inside a body bag is no way to start the day. But that’s where you are, and worse yet, you’re 35,000 feet above the desert, guarded by the some of the toughest soldiers on the planet. You’re being flown back to the people who created you, who may have even betrayed you. You’re having a hard time separating your false memories (of family, duty, country) from the grim reality (of bullets, blood, screaming). Who’s really on your side? Why were you created? And where does the “real you” end and the killer known as Bloodshot begin?

Reset. Rebuild. Then reload. The white knuckle thrill ride into the mind behind Project Rising Sprit’s billion dollar killer continues this August 15th in Bloodshot #2 – hitting stores the same day as Harbinger #3!

Sneak Preview: HARBINGER #3

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #3, from New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier, BPRD) and acclaimed artists Khari Evans (Immortal Iron Fist) and Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX)!

Class is now in session! After months on the run, troubled teenage psionic Peter Stanchek has found shelter – and a newfound sense of purpose – in Toyo Harada’s top secret training academy, the Harbinger Foundation. But as Harada’s tutors attempt to temper Peter’s mind and refine his near unlimited abilities, will he discover the hero within – or dark secrets long ago buried to protect himself and others?

Toyo Harada has seen the future – and Peter Stanchek is there, presiding over a fiery end to all things. Can Harada right his course, or is Pete the first harbinger of a terrifying tomorrow? The most unpredictable, most unnerving series in comics reveals a new class of hero on August 15th in Harbinger #3 – in stores the same day as Bloodshot #2!
