GENERATION ZERO Goes for the Kill in HARBINGER #12

HAR_012_COVER_REEDERValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #12 from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and acclaimed artists Khari Evans and Trevor Hairsine! On May 8th, the definitive Valiant Universe event of the year kicks into high gear as Peter Stanchek and the Renegades come to face-to-face with the Harbinger Wars’ most unpredictable new players – the escaped Project Rising Spirit strike team known as Generation Zero!

Unsure of exactly what they’ll find, the Renegades have followed Peter Stanchek’s strange dreams and visions straight into Las Vegas. Led by the words of the Bleeding Monk – who bleeds but does not die – they’re about to find themselves in the company of PRS’s tempestuous teenage test subjects, the fugitive Harbingers that now call themselves Generation Zero. Inside of a fortified Las Vegas casino, will they will be able to broker a peace with their kindred spirits in the Renegades? Or do these trained child soldiers still have one wild card left in their assault on authority?

The next generation of the Valiant Universe has arrived…and all of Las Vegas is going to feel the aftershocks when Harbinger #12 pulls the trigger on the next explosive chapter of Harbinger Wars – in stores everywhere May 8th!

Then, follow Bloodshot into a no-holds-barred battle with the Harbinger Wars’ most ruthless combatant, Toyo Harada, on May 15th in Bloodshot #11!

The Origin of MASTER DARQUE Haunts SHADOWMAN #0

SM_ZERO_COVER_JOHNSON

 
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Shadowman #0 from Harvey Award-nominated writer Justin Jordan (The Legend of Luther Strode) and an all-star cast of visionary artists including Roberto De La Torre (Daredevil), Mico Suayan (Harbinger), Neil Edwards (Fantastic Four) and Lewis LaRosa (PunisherMAX)! For hundreds of years, the Shadowmen have guarded our world from the nightmare realm known as the Deadside and its sadistic necromancer, Master Darque. But who is Master Darque? And what is the root of his otherworldly evil?

Now, for the first time anywhere, the answer to these questions and more will finally be revealed. Journey back to the plantations of antebellum Louisiana to meet the man once called Nicodemo Darque and discover how a depraved life drenched in dust, blood, and bone transformed him into a menace that would one day threaten the whole of the Valiant Universe and all life as we know it.

Before the discovery of the Deadside, before Jack Boniface, before the rise of the Valiant Universe, go back to the beginning to witness the first coming of Master Darque on May 1st in Shadowman #0 – now featuring a wraparound standard cover by Eisner Award-winning artist Dave Johnson!
