Valiant is proud to announce that legendary artist and creator Barry Kitson (Amazing Spider-Man, FF, Adventures of Superman) will be joining New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars, Unknown Soldier) for “Perfect Day” – an all-new, four-part story arc beginning this August in Harbinger #15! In the wake of Harbinger Wars, start reading here as Peter Stanchek’s next year in the Valiant Universe begins with a mind-bending trip to the outer limits of the Valiant Universe!
It’s been a brutal few months for Peter and the Renegades, culminating in the harrowing events – and losses – of the Harbinger Wars. But now, the surviving members of the team have woken up to the Best. Day. Ever. As Lou Reed sang, it’s just a perfect day, problems left all alone. But for Peter Stanchek – a kid who deserves a good day – something seems off…like all is not what it seems…
In the aftermath of Valiant’s first crossover event, a new day is dawning for the Valiant’s outsider band of teenage heroes, but is their newfound happiness the first sign of a new golden age…or the first cloud in a gathering storm? Find out this August as Joshua Dysart and Barry Kitson deliver a brand new jumping-on point for the series that Bloody Disgusting calls “the best damn team book on store shelves” in Harbinger #15 – featuring covers by Barry Kitson, Trevor Hairsine, Khari Evans, and Rian Hughes!

Bloodshot continues his one-man incursion behind the enemy lines of the Harbinger Wars right here on May 15th with the next chapter of an all-new, self-contained story arc for the most brutal book on the stands!
Everyone says they want what’s best for the children…but Bloodshot’s the only one who’s willing to fight for it. After a lifetime of lies, destruction and pain, he’s vowed to use his extraordinary abilities to do one simple thing: keep these kids alive, even if they’re terrified of him. The war for the escaped children of Project Rising Spirit, however, has been waging longer than Bloodshot realizes. And what can one soldier do when he’s up against two powerful, secret armies?

As Aric of Dacia grapples with the realization that the Vine aren’t the only race on the world he intends to conquer, will his surprise compatriots offer him refuge or rivalry? Meanwhile, the Vine’s leaders are about to launch their most devastating attack yet, one that will push the X-O Manowar armor to its limits and beyond.

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!
