First Look: Valiant Reveals HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 Cover by Clayton Crain – An Exclusive Prelude to the Devastating Comics Event of 2018!

HW2_000_COVER_CRAINAs revealed today at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to present your first look at the cover to HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 – an exclusive prelude to Valiant’s seismic level event coming in 2018! Now, for the first time anywhere, glimpse the coming conflagration that awaits Valiant’s most powerful heroes here in the exclusive HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 cover by superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D., X-Force)!

Available only by redeeming four mail-away coupons included in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1-4, HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 will lay the foundation for the bloodied future that has been foreseen by the world’s most high-powered threat: Toyo Harada’s former protege and the Renegade’s newest adversary, Alexander Solomon, who is set to make his chilling first appearance in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 on November 16th! But there are those that even Solomon fears… And, as the march toward HARBINGER WARS 2 builds over the coming year, a new and terrible force will reveal itself on the heroes of the Valiant Universe!

“Solomon isn’t just going to irrevocably change the lives of of the Harbinger Renegades team, but the entire Valiant Universe. Everything that Solomon does in this series will spill into the Valiant Universe and, little by little, those actions are going to build into Harbinger Wars 2, our massive story for 2018,” Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons told Comic Book Resources. “The first “Harbinger Wars,” Valiant’s inaugural crossover event, brought about enormous change for the Valiant Universe and its superheroes, so you can bet that “Harbinger Wars 2” will have monumental ramifications for our characters.”

“The arrival of Alexander Solomon is going to create a whole new dynamic for [HARBINGER RENEGADE]. He’s a force who can go toe-to-toe with both Toyo Harada and Pete Stanchek,” added Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “We’re incredibly excited to watch fans learn what he is planning… We’ve already teased HARBINGER WARS 2 in 2018 and I think many people are assuming that Solomon is the driving force behind that story. He plays a major role in the events leading up to and including HARBINGER WARS 2, but I think the fans will be interested to learn that he will not, in fact, be the central figure behind that event.”

At the height of his power, Toyo Harada, CEO of one of the world’s largest corporations and the most powerful psiot on the planet, discovered, recruited and activated Alexander Solomon. Gifted with the power of probability analysis, Solomon is able to predict future events with astonishing accuracy. This ability made him incredibly valuable to Harada. Working together over time, the two grew as close as father and son. Eventually, Solomon would rise to become one of Harada’s most trusted deputies and a member of his inner council…until Harada discovered that his protege had secretly been exploring an agenda in stark disobedience to his wishes. Betrayed, Harada sent a strike team to neutralize Solomon. That strike team’s failure sent Solomon underground…until now…

And, soon, Alexander Solomon’s renegade vision for the future of humanity will put him on a one-way collision course with Valiant’s number-one team of super-powered upstarts in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the fall’s biggest new ongoing series from multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan)!

Packed with 40 explosive pages of all-new content, HARBINGER RENEGADE #1 kicks off with an all-new introduction to the world of Harbinger with artwork by Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR)! Then, meet the Valiant Universe’s next major adversary with the first appearance of Alexander Solomon – the titular “renegade” that will forever change the fate and ultimate future of Peter Stanchek, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and the rest of Valiant’s upstart superteam – in the first of four prologues with artwork by Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA) spanning HARBINGER RENEGADE’s first four issues!

On November 16th, be there as Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson usher in a major new era in Valiant history with AN ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT – and begin the countdown to HARBINGER WARS 2 – only in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1! Featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl), the colossal comics debut of 2016 starts right here with a perilous new vision of the future that awaits Valiant’s number-one superteam!
