Shadowman’s brand new story arc, “Darque Reckoning,” is on the rise for the Valiant Universe! When the undead begin to attack throughout New Orleans, can the combined forces of Shadowman and Dr. Mirage repel an army that can’t be killed?

As Master Darque devises his escape from the Deadside, his earthly minions in the Brethren crime syndicate are shoring up their ranks and preparing the city for the second coming of their dark sovereign. Their operations, however, have drawn the attention of a mysterious, pistol-wielding assassin, who has been retaliating against the Brethren on behalf of a long-forgotten New Orleans deity named Baron Samedi, lord of the dead — a deity that Master Darque has just paid a visit in the Deadside…

As the dead rise and unholy alliances are forged, Jack Boniface is about to find out that the true cost of becoming the Shadowman is always paid in blood — and that Master Darque intends to collect — in Shadowman #6, the second chapter of “Darque Reckoning,” on sale April 3rd!

But Bloodshot hasn’t forgotten about Kuretich. And he’s about to reap his revenge.

Assault on Project Rising Spirit!

Bloodshot is finally free of the memories that have haunted him since his awakening – but now even greater mysteries remain. Who was he before he was transformed into a walking weapon of mass destruction? And does he have a real family out there somewhere? Unfortunately, the only man with the answers is the former mastermind of Project Rising Spirit, the quasi-governmental science division that created him – and he’s just struck a devil’s bargain with Bloodshot. “Destroy your creators and I’ll reveal everything.” Well, almost everything…

Collecting BLOODSHOT #5-9 by acclaimed writer Duane Swierczynski (Birds of Prey) and artists Manuel Garcia (Black Widow), Arturo Lozzi (Immortal Weapons), and Matthew Clark (Avenging Spider-Man), Bloodshot’s brutal, bullet-riddled tour of duty through the Valiant Universe continues right here in the second shock-inducing volume of the series that Complex calls “hard and heavy with each issue.”

HARBINGER WARS #3 Calls in the H.A.R.D. CORPS This June!

HWARS_003_COVER_ZIRCHEROn June 12th, what happens in Vegas may just destroy the Valiant Universe!

Beginning in Harbinger Wars #3 (of 4) by Joshua Dysart, Duane Swierczynski, and Clayton Henry, get ready for the first appearance of the all-new, all-dangerous H.A.R.D. Corps – an unpredictable new player in Valiant’s first crossover event!

Las Vegas is burning, and the situation on the ground is about to go from bad to worse. With the firefight between the Harbinger Foundation, Bloodshot and the Renegades spiraling out of control, Project Rising Spirit has only one desperate option left to prevent the conflagration from spreading. It’s time to bring the deep-black weapons development project – designation H.A.R.D. Corps – back online. But are they a precision strike or a sledgehammer? And can they be trusted with the enormous power they wield?

“These guys are dangerous. They are not covert operators and they are not stealthy. When it comes to a precarious situation like the Harbinger Wars, they are a weapon of last resort,” Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani told Newsarama. “We keep saying internally that the H.A.R.D. Corps are not a scalpel. They’re more like a landmine. Dropping them into the mix of Harbinger Wars is going to ensure things are explosive – and, rest assured, they are not an element that Bloodshot, Harada, or the Renegades will be anticipating.”

The Harbinger Wars hit their boiling point on June 12th as the H.A.R.D. Corps charge out of the line of fire and into the Valiant Universe! Don’t miss their devastating first assault inHarbinger Wars #3 (of 4) – featuring covers by Patrick Zircher, Trevor Hairsine, and Khari Evans!

VALIANT Goes 8-Bit for HARBINGER WARS: BATTLE FOR LAS VEGAS – Coming Soon to iOS and Android!

hw-logo

 

This summer, Valiant’s Harbinger Wars crossover event will be delivering 8-bits of awesome to iOS and Android devices everywhere!

Kotaku today debuted the first look at Harbinger Wars: Battle for Las Vegas – an 8-bit side-scrolling video game tracing the events of Valiant’s upcoming summer crossover! Following the release of Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4) on April 3rd, the game’s first level – colliding the casts of the Bloodshot and Harbinger ongoing series against one another – will be available as a free download via the iOS App Store and Google Play in mid-April.

Developed by Storm City Entertainment, Harbinger Wars: Battle for Las Vegas offers fans the chance to follow nanite-enhanced commando Bloodshot or teenage telekinetic Peter Stanchek as they fight their way out of a classified Project Rising Spirit compound and into a psiot-occupied casino on the Vegas strip. Following the release of each of Harbinger Wars’ four issues, fans will be offered the opportunity to download new levels, each based around plot developments and settings presented in the Valiant mini-series by writers Joshua Dysart and Duane Swierczynski and artist Clayton Henry. In-app purchases will also allow users to acquire a variety of new weapons and characters as the game progresses, including Toyo Harada, newly introduced members of the H.A.R.D. Corps, and more.

“Following on the heels of our partnership with USA Luge, this is just the latest in a series of programs we have in the works to strengthen the Valiant brand in comics and beyond,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions and Ad Sales. “Our characters have a history in the gaming community and this is the start of a brand new chapter for the Valiant Universe.”

“We are extremely excited to be working with Valiant Entertainment on their first foray in mobile gaming. Valiant’s creative staff is incredibly keen to combine the print and digital mediums, and bringing the events of the Harbinger Wars mini-series to mobile is a unique opportunity to do precisely that,” said Storm City President Steve Newton.

“With Harbinger Wars: Battle for Las Vegas, we’re striving to achieve the perfect synergy of gameplay and story,” said Valiant Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “The events of the Harbinger Wars series will be reflected monthly in the game itself and we’ll also be paying homage to the 8-bit style with a line of non-incentive 8-bit covers for our June comic releases. This has been a tremendously fun initiative to work on, and one that we think fans and retailers will respond to as well.”

To mark the game’s release across the rest of Valiant’s publishing line, Valiant is also offering 8-bit variant shelf covers by artist Matthew Waite for each of its ongoing titles this June – X-O Manowar #14, Harbinger #13, Bloodshot #12, Archer & Armstrong #10 and Shadowman #7.

Your First Look Inside HARBINGER WARS #1!

HWARS_001_COVER_LAROSAOn April 3rd, there will be no winners. Just survivors. Harbinger Wars is coming!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4) – the can’t miss first chapter of the game-changing battle between Bloodshot and Harbinger that will define the Valiant Universe in 2013! From acclaimed writers Joshua Dysart and Duane Swierczynski and red-hot artists Clayton Henry and Clayton Crain, Valiant’s first family crossover event starts right here this April!

For decades, Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation and the government’s own Project Rising Spirit have been waging a secret war over the rarest resource known to man – the unruly superhuman telekinetics known as Harbingers. Over the years, they’ve each collected a small army of these empowered children to inflict their agendas on the world. But now, the reformed Harbinger hunter known as Bloodshot needs to atone for his crimes – and he’s going to start by releasing two dozen of the most volatile Harbingers from their PRS prison and into the world.

Bloodshot wants to lead them. Toyo Harada wants to control them. And Peter Stancheck, a teenage renegade with immense powers of his own, wants to give them free rein. But the runaway children of PRS have their own ideas for the future…and, as the body count rises, the Valiant Universe will realize that power this immense cannot be contained. It must be exercised. Who will survive the Harbinger Wars?

DR. MIRAGE Lives Again in SHADOWMAN #5

SM_005_COVER_ZIRCHERThe Associated Press today announced that Dr. Mirage, Valiant’s preeminent psychic investigator and supernatural hero, will debut this Wednesday in Shadowman #5 in a new incarnation created by writer Justin Jordan and co-writer/artist Patrick Zircher.

In this new iteration, Dr. Mirage is the stage name of Shan Fong, a one-time television investigator of paranormal phenomena whose unique abilities make her an invaluable asset to police departments around the world. During the upcoming “Darque Reckoning” storyline – beginning on March 6th in Shadowman #5 – Fong steps into the world of Jack Boniface and the Shadowman after discovering that no matter where she goes, the dead only have one thing to say: “Master Darque is coming.”

“Since the Summer of Valiant, we’ve been slowly building towards several key events. You can see the first of these events this April in Harbinger Wars, where Bloodshot and Harbinger collide,” Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani told the AP. “The return of Dr. Mirage is part of that plan — part of setting the stage. Dr. Mirage is a key piece in the future of the Valiant Universe and the timing of the return, as well as the manner, is no accident.”
