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.

HARBINGER WARS: HARBINGER continues here!

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.

Everyone says they want what’s best for the children… but Bloodshot’s the only one who’s willing to fight for it.

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?

Your First Look Inside PLANET DEATH in X-O MANOWAR #11!

XO_011_COVER_CRAIN
USA Today today debuted the first look inside Valiant’s new star-studded story arc, PLANET DEATH, launching on March 20th in X-O Manowar #11!

Reuniting the chart-topping creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord, Planet Death is a story a year in the making – and one that will have massive consequences for Aric of Dacia as he mounts a one-man revenge mission against an entire alien world. The invasion is here – and X-O Manowar is the invader. This is PLANET DEATH!

Aric of Dacia, a 4th century Visigoth armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon, is all that stands between the Earth and all-out annihilation at the hands of the alien race that abducted him from his own time. Now, the day of Aric’s reckoning has finally come. As his Visigoth forefathers sacked Rome, Aric will take the battle directly to his oppressors on the Vine homeworld of Loam. He will decimate their armies, he will level their cities – and he will not stop until the whole of their empire is reduced to ash.

“One of the great tragedies of Aric’s character is he grew up under the heel of the Roman Empire, and he never got to see the Visigoths have their day,” Venditti told USA Today. “While his uncle Alaric was sacking Rome on Earth, Aric was a prisoner of the Vine in space. His experience with the Vine has led him to equate them to the Romans, though, and now they’ve become the focus of his anger. That doesn’t bode well for them.”

Running through X-O Manowar #11-14, PLANET DEATH is a perfect place to jump on board one of the most acclaimed series in comics. With the first installment of the two-part Prelude to PLANET DEATH in stores now, find out why this is the comics event that has fans and critics raving – then get a sneak preview of PLANET DEATH – Part 1 (of 4) in X-O Manowar #11, only at USA Today!

Deep underground, get ready to go to war with the band of frenzied, furious and all-out explosive teenage telekinetics that Bloodshot once stalked and captured as an agent of PRS. The children of the Nursery have had years to plan their revenge…and what they have in store for the “Boogeyman” behind their nightmares will be far worse than death itself.

On February 13th, the past isn’t just haunting Bloodshot, it’s hunting him – only in Bloodshot #8!

AA_007_COVER_LUPACCHINO-310x476

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #7 by New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente and acclaimed artist Emanuela Lupacchino! “The Wrath of the Eternal Warrior” continues on February 13th as Archer & Armstrong join the new Geomancer’s sacred quest to quell the forces of the Null!

From Calcutta to New York City, Archer & Armstrong have been racing desperately to stay one step ahead of Armstrong’s bellicose brother, Gilad – aka the Eternal Warrior. Lucky then that Zorn Capital spokeswoman Kay McHenry has just discovered that she is the next in the long line of Geomancers – the mystical beings to whom the Warrior has sworn his fist and steel. Now Kay, Gilad, and our heroes must put aside their differences to stop Kay’s boss, Elliot Zorn, and the zero-worshipping fanatics in the Null before they destroy reality altogether.

Can Valiant’s conspiracy-smashing adventurers add up the Null’s master plan before everything that is becomes nothing at all? Because if they don’t, the Valiant Universe might just become a vacuum in Archer & Armstrong #7 – in stores on February 13th!

SHADOWMAN #0 and ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #0 – Coming This May from VALIANT!

SM_ZERO_WRAPAROUND_LAROSA-640x323 SM_ZERO_CVR_JOHNSON-310x465

This May, jump into two of Valiant’s most popular ongoing series with all-new, standalone entry points in Shadowman #0 and Archer & Armstrong #0 – as told by an all-star cast of Valiant’s visionary talents!

First, writers Justin Jordan & Patrick Zircher team up with superstar artist Trevor Hairsine to chronicle the rise and fall of the 20th century’s greatest defender in Shadowman #0! Twenty-five years ago, Josiah Boniface was the Shadowman, and he had more problems than simply Master Darque – things from beyond are trying to eat the world, the police are trying to send him to jail and now he’s got to rescue Helena LeBreton from a murderous cult, whether she likes it or not.

Then, in Archer & Armstrong #0, the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry reunite to tell a tale of the early days of the man known as Armstrong! How early? How’s ancient Ur sound?! For the first time, the 100 percent true story behind the Epic of Gilgamesh can be told… A tale of three warrior brothers, the Anni-Padda – better known to the Valiant Universe as Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior and Timewalker – on a quest to the mysterious Faraway. What they find is a lost land full of danger, excitement – and the greatest secret of the Valiant Universe!
