CLAYTON CRAIN Joins HARBINGER WARS #1 with DYSART, SWIERCZYNSKI, and HENRY!

HWARS_001_COVER_LAROSAValiant is proud to announce that superstar artist Clayton Crain (X-Force, Carnage) is joining Joshua DysartDuane Swierczynski, and Clayton Henry for Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s first family crossover! Arriving in stores on April 3rd, Harbinger Wars #1 is the can’t-miss first chapter of the event that will pit Bloodshot and Harbinger against a new generation of superhuman – and each other.

“Clayton Crain is a phenomenal talent and we’re extraordinarily happy to have him joining Valiant for Harbinger Wars #1,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons. “He will be handling a pivotal sequence introducing Generation Zero, the strike force controlled by Project Rising Spirit that inadvertently sets the Harbinger Wars in motion.”

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.

HWARS_checklistBloodshot 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?

A 12-issue crossover event from an all-star cast of visionary talent, the defining Valiant Universe storyline of the year begins in Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4). Then the action continues with all-new jumping-on points inHarbinger #11 and Bloodshot #10 – the first issues of new standalone, four-issue story arcs chronicling the fallout of the Valiant Universe’s first full-scale superhuman conflict. Spanning 12 issues total, follow the story independently in Harbinger Wars, Harbinger or Bloodshot, or read them all to experience the full scope and intensity of the Harbinger Wars saga!

It all begins on April 3rd in Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4) – written by Joshua Dysart and Duane Swierczynski with art by Clayton Henry and Clayton Crain!

The HARBINGER WARS heat up Las Vegas!

After decades of secret conflict, Toyo Harada has managed in one fell swoop to cripple Project Rising Spirit through the masterful manipulation of key players in the Valiant Universe. Now he wants the psiot children Bloodshot rescued from the bowels of a nightmarish PRS facility. Too bad. This rogue band of super-powered escapees have begun to call themselves GENERATION ZERO and they’ve declared a war of their own. First strike: Vegas, baby! And while PRS fashions a radical plan for getting the kids back, Peter Stanchek and the Renegades are following visions right into the heart of the Harbinger Wars.

Battle weary, the Renegades follow Peter Stanchek’s strange dreams and visions into the Southwest American desert, unsure of what exactly they’ll find. Under the duress of constant conflict, and led by the words of the Bleeding Monk – who bleeds but does not die – our band of teens begins to fray, barely even a cohesive group by the time they reach Las Vegas, Nevada – now rechristened “Psiot Nation.” Here Peter and his crew come face to face with the Harbingers who have escaped from Project Rising Spirit’s prison…Harbingers who call themselves GENERATION ZERO.

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 GENERATION ZERO, however, has been waging longer than Bloodshot realizes. And what can one soldier do when he’s up against two powerful, secret armies?

VALIANT MASTERS: SHADOWMAN Spotlights DITKO, ENGLEHART, HALL, LAPHAM, SHOOTER, and More!

vm_shadowman_001_006This May, a new day is dawning for Valiant’s original defender of the New Orleans night!

Valiant is proud to announce the upcoming release of Valiant Masters: Shadowman Vol. 1 – Spirits Within – the first-ever deluxe hardcover collection featuring the origin and debut solo adventures of Shadowman in the original Valiant Universe!

Jack Boniface nearly died one night – attacked by something out of a nightmare. But since that terrifying experience something has changed. Now, when darkness falls, a feeling comes over him, an urge to destroy the demons that would defile his night. Wild, reckless, and hell-bent on eliminating evil in all its forms, Jack is now his city’s new protector – the nocturnal avenger simply called Shadowman.

Featuring appearances by X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong and more of the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes, Valiant Masters: Shadowman Vol. 1 – Spirits Within also brings together classic work from a who’s who of comics luminaries, including Steve Ditko, Steve Englehart, Bob Hall, David Lapham, Bob Layton, Jim Shooter and many more!

Re-presenting SHADOWMAN (1992) #0-7 and material from DARQUE PASSAGES (1994) #1, this latest addition to the Valiant Masters line of hardcovers is essential reading for the any fan of the Valiant Universe – past or present.
