The Untold Final Chapter of HARBINGER WARS – Declassified in HARBINGER #17!

HAR_017_COVER_HENRYValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #17 by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and Valiant superstar Clayton Henry! Ten days ago, Peter Stanchek and the Renegades barely escaped the clutches of Toyo Harada in the epic final battle of the Harbinger Wars…or so they think. As reality unravels, Valiant’s teenage superteam is about to discover the true extent of the collateral damage from the summer’s blockbuster crossover event – and just what they sacrificed to make it out alive.

Meanwhile, an unforeseen threat to Toyo Harada’s empire lies dormant deep within the walls of Harada’s own fortified prison facility. Meet Monica Jim – aka Animalia – another survivor of the three-way conflagration that decimated the Vegas Strip and a fellow P.O.W. inside the Harbinger Foundation. Just how does she factor into the Renagades’ “Perfect Day”? And could this savagely dangerous child be their only hope of escape from a perfectly designed prison of the mind?

Ready for the whole truth about what really happened in Vegas? You’re about to find out as Joshua Dysart and Clayton Henry reunite to reveal the secret final chapter of the Harbinger Wars in Harbinger #17 – on sale October 23rd.

Connect-the-Dots Variant by TOM FOWLER

So…two superheroes, a clone, and a goat move into a junior two-bedroom…

As a totally questionable romance blossoms between Woody and his runaway science experiment girlfriend, Eric finds himself quickly rising through the ranks of his new employers at Magnum Security. But when he comes to find that his duties as an on-staff superhero are bit more unsavory than he ever expected, it’s down to Quantum, an old army buddy, and Woody—interloper!—to discover the illicit truth behind Mr. Magnum’s all-seeing private security empire.

Cover by CLAYTON CRAIN

Soldier. Guardian. Warrior. Legend.

Across ten millennia and a thousand battlefields, Gilad Anni-Padda has traversed the darkest, most mysterious corners of history. But the horror and bloodshed of constant warfare has finally taken its toll on the man myth calls the Eternal Warrior…and he has abdicated his duties as the Fist and the Steel of Earth for a quiet life of seclusion. But when a blood vendetta from the distant past suddenly reappears in the modern day, he must decide if he will return to the ways of war…for the child who betrayed him thousands of years ago…

From New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (Planet Hulk) and superstar artists Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis) and Clayton Crain (Carnage), this volume collects the first four issues of the series that Comic Vine calls “action-packed, well-written, and overflowing with potential.”

Cover by J.G. JONES

Every mission…is someone’s last.

Out of the ashes of Harbinger Wars, Bloodshot is about to join the weaponized men and women of the HARBINGER ACTIVE RESISTANCE DIVISION – the black budget, technologically-augmented strike force where the powers are dangerously unstable and every mission is a one-way ticket into the meat grinder. With a reluctant leader calling the shots and a new crop of untested rookies manning the frontline, Bloodshot is about to take H.A.R.D. Corps behind enemy lines – and into a gasoline-drenched, synapse-snapping suicide run where no one is safe…and heroes always die trying.

Collecting BLOODSHOT AND H.A.R.D. CORPS #14-17 and BLOODSHOT #0, join acclaimed writers Christos Gage (Avengers Academy) and Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars) and superstar-in-the-making Emanuela Lupacchino (Archer & Armstrong) right here to light the fuse on an explosive new chapter for Bloodshot and the Valiant Universe’s most feared team of superhuman operatives! Also featuring the shocking origin of Bloodshot as told by Matt KIndt (Mind MGMT) and ChrisCross (Superman/Batman)!
