First Look: HARBINGER #20 Makes Headlines as HARADA Goes Public!

HAR_020_COVER_HENRYAs revealed today by the Associated Press, the landscape of the Valiant Universe is changing forever this January in the Harbinger #20 – the FIRST ISSUE of “RESISTANCE,” an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling creators Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars) and Clayton Henry (Suicide Squad)!

A whistleblower named Ax has just unleashed a secret with the potential to change the course of human history – superhumans walk among us…and billionaire philanthropist Toyo Harada may just be the most powerful of them all. As a “psiot” with nearly unlimited telekinetic potential, Harada and his secret Harbinger Foundation have shaped the world from the shadows for more than half a century, using their abilities to secretly control the balance of power. Treason. Conspiracy. Mass murder. Harada’s crimes are too numerous to count…but he won’t be held accountable by the laws of mortal men. Instead, he’s about to seize the opportunity to inflict his agenda on the governments of the world…and his former protege Peter Stanchek will soon become humanity’s only hope of nullifying a tyrant from whom no secret is safe.

The Valiant Universe discovers the true of face of its very first super-villain – and meets the Renegades who would oppose him – when “RESISTANCE” ushers in humanity’s next great upheaval beginning on January 15th in Harbinger #20!

BSCORPS_018_COVER_CRAINValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #18 – the FIRST ISSUE of “GET SOME,” an all-new story arc featuring the return of comics icon and legendary artist Bart Sears (X-O Manowar) to the Valiant Universe!

With a valuable oil pipeline in dire peril, Bloodshot and the expendable commandos of H.A.R.D. Corps are headed to Africa to bring down a network of terrorist saboteurs. But as Bloodshot digs into the multinational oil conglomerate he’s been brought in to protect, he’ll soon find himself confronted by the complex truth behind the terror – and face-to-face with an older, scrappier, more grizzled generation of superhuman soldier from the glory days of proxy wars and state-sponsored assassination.

Project Rising Spirit’s darkest secrets yet are about to come bubbling back to the surface when Gage, Dysart and Sears open up the throttle on “GET SOME” in Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #18 – in stores January 8th!

UNITY #5 Launches “TRAPPED BY WEBNET” – An All-New Story Arc by MATT KINDT and Exclusive Artist CAFU!

UNITY_005_COVER_CRAINFresh off the sold-out success of Unity #1′s best-selling debut, Valiant’s elite super-team is raising the stakes ever further with an all-new mission in March!

As revealed today at USA Today, Unity #5 will introduce the Valiant Universe’s next A-level adversary in “Trapped by Webnet” – a new, three-part story arc launching Ninjak’s most notorious arch-nemesis, Dr. Silk, and his high-tech terror network, WEBNET, into the all-new Valiant Universe! Written by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Justice League of America, Mind MGMT) with pencils by Valiant’s newest exclusive artist, CAFU (Earth 2, Action Comics), start reading here when Ninjak steps front and center for an all-new entry point into Valiant’s landmark, chart-topping ongoing series.

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. First came UNITY… Now meet WEBNET! Coming off of the earth-shattering repercussions of their first mission, Ninjak is leading the newly formed Unity team right back into the trenches to face the Valiant Universe’s next colossal threat – the enigmatic Dr. Silk and the radical terror cell known as WEBNET! With the fate of untold millions on the line, can this team of cutthroat heroes uncover Silk’s endgame – and his connection to Ninjak’s shadowy past – before a global pandemic wipes humanity off the map? From the English countryside to the jungles of Taiwan, MI-6′s most lethal intelligence operative and his ruthless team of egotists, immortals and malcontents are taking their fight global to stop WEBNET in its path.

UNITY_006_COVER_CRAIN“I’ve put a lot of thought into [Dr. Silk] and one of the things that makes him interesting is that he’s crazy SMART…not just crazy. So I’m really focusing on that, and hand in hand with that is his age,” Kindt told USA Today. “He’s kind of a withered old guy which implies a lot of history. So part of his intrigue is going to be what he’s done in the past and how it’s going to effect our present.”

Unity #5 will be 100% returnable for qualifying retailers and include four limited Pullbox Exclusive Variants (available to fans who pre-order with their local retailer) from an all-star roster of comics talents – Mico Suayan (Ultimate Cataclysm), Philip Tan (Green Lantern), Raul Allen (Secret Avengers), and Diego Bernard (Eternal Warrior)!

Series writer and acclaimed artist Matt Kindt will also contribute an incentive cover for issue #5.

This March, the smash-hit new series of the year begins a daring new act in Unity #5 – an all-new introduction to the most feared team in comics!
