JIM ZUB and EDWIN HUANG Humor the H.A.R.D. CORPS for VALIANT in July!

HCORPS_BACKUP_001This summer, before the weaponized men and women of the Harbinger Active Resistance Division begin an all-new new mission in Bloodshot and H.A.R.D Corps #14, all of the Valiant Universe will be asking the same question – “Who will lead the H.A.R.D. Corps?”

Valiant is proud to announce that writer Jim Zub and artist Edwin Huang, the acclaimed creative team of Skullkickers, will make their Valiant debut this July with “Who Will Lead the H.A.R.D. Corps?” – an all-new short story starring the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes – and villains – as they send up the search for the H.A.R.D. Corps’ next commanding officer!

X-O Manowar. Quantum and Woody. Archer & Armstrong. Shadowman. Bloodshot. What do these disparate champions from around the Valiant Universe have in common? They’re all on the H.A.R.D. Corps’ recruitment list! Now for the first time ever, Zub and Huang are bringing them together for a humorous one-shot tale of the Project Rising Spirit’s latest – and perhaps last – membership drive.

“[We] were able to come up with a series of these little, short vignettes of the interview process,” Zub told Comic Book Resources. “It’s fun stuff because we get to run through a nice selection and variety of Valiant characters, some of which are appropriate, some of which are wonderfully inappropriate, how they fail the interview process and how Bloodshot succeeds over his competition.”

HWARS_003_COVER_ZIRCHER
Appearing as a back-up feature in each of Valiant’s July releases, Zub and Huang’s “Who Will Lead the H.A.R.D. Corps?” short will be available in Shadowman #8, Quantum and Woody #1, X-O Manowar #15, Harbinger Wars #4 (of 4), Archer & Armstrong #11, Harbinger #14 and Bloodshot #13.

But first – don’t miss the first appearance of the all-new, all-deadly H.A.R.D. Corps on June 12th in Harbinger Wars #3 (of 4) – the next epic milestone of Valiant’s first crossover event! Then jump on board the new monthly adventures of Valiant’s deadly strike force when Bloodshot joins the team this September in Bloodshot and H.A.R.D Corps #14 from co-writers Christos Gage & Joshua Dysart and red-hot artist Emanuela Lupacchino!

Out of the Ashes of HARBINGER WARS…BARRY KITSON Joins JOSHUA DYSART for PERFECT DAY in HARBINGER #15!

HAR_015_COVER_KITSONValiant 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 #11 Goes Blow-for-Blow with HARBINGER WARS

BS_011_COVER_ANDRASOFSZKYValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot #11 from the all-star creative team of writer Duane Swierczynski and artist Barry Kitson! 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?

Before H.A.R.D. Corps hits the scene in Harbinger Wars #3 (of 4), find out everything you need to know about the nonstop action event of the summer right here on May 15th, only in Bloodshot #11!

GENERATION ZERO Goes for the Kill in HARBINGER #12

HAR_012_COVER_REEDERValiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #12 from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and acclaimed artists Khari Evans and Trevor Hairsine! On May 8th, the definitive Valiant Universe event of the year kicks into high gear as Peter Stanchek and the Renegades come to face-to-face with the Harbinger Wars’ most unpredictable new players – the escaped Project Rising Spirit strike team known as Generation Zero!

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!
