“THE VINE IMPERATIVE” – FINALE! Spy vs. superhuman!

Toyo Harada’s utopian ambition has been shaken to the depths by a decades-old enemy. Since the day Harada began accruing power, the undercover agents of the Vine’s alien empire have watched…and waited. Years later, as Harada strives to reshape the global economy, establish governments friendly to his goals, and gift the ability of space travel to all humankind, the Vine want him put in check – permanently. Now, with saboteurs riddling his organization and the alien assassin called LV-99 slavering to snap his master’s neck…are the Vine about to succeed?

Livewire Charges into “Stormbreak” for Imperium #13 – An All-New Jumping-On Point

Valiant has released a first look inside Imperium #13 – the FIRST ISSUE of “Stormbreak,” an all-new story arc reuniting Harbinger‘s Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans! On February 17th, the series unleashes a devastating new jumping-on point as the Valiant Universe comes raging to the doorstep of Toyo Harada’s utopia…with Livewire and H.A.R.D. Corps leading the charge to unseat the world’s most powerful superhuman!

Toyo Harada will save the world…if he doesn’t doom it first. The revolutionary disruption that Harada and his team have launched – by deposing tyrants, housing refugees, and feeding the poor – has come at the expense of the world’s wealthiest nations. When the planet’s leaders have had enough, it will be decided: Toyo Harada must die. Now a crack unit of operatives will stand against Harada on the global stage…with his own former pupil Livewire taking him head-on. Meanwhile, Harada’s military lieutenant Gravedog meets his match when Charlie Palmer drops into the firefight of a lifetime…H.A.R.D. Corps vs. H.A.R.D. Corps!

Featuring covers by acclaimed artists Robert Gill, CAFU, Clayton Henry, Ryan Lee, and Juan Jose Ryp. The team behind Harbinger returns to lay waste to Toyo Harada’s besieged empire…and ready the world for the biggest dogfight of the New Year!

“THE VINE IMPERATIVE” pushes our world to war!

With his resources spread thin and his time running out, Toyo Harada must strike if his plan to save the world by force will ever succeed. After a push to take more of the African continent – deposing corrupt governments and toppling extremists – Harada’s moves on the world stage were too bold to ignore. The alien agents of the Vine race, who were entrenched throughout the global power structure, have seen their opportunity to strike…and Harada now has his opportunity to break their tenuous pact of peace and take them down.

But with a specialized Vine killer among his own team – the ruthless and lethal Lord Vine-99 – will Harada be able to hold tight the grip on his monster’s leash… or will LV-99 turn on his master at last?

The world is suspended within balances of power. Tense and delicate terms of peace, crisscrossing and humming just below the surface. The Vine plantings, undercover alien spies of a galaxy-spanning race, hold positions of influence all over the planet. Toyo Harada, Earth’s most unstoppable psiot, amassed a bedrock of power through his corporate, political, and super-powered maneuverings. A tenuous détente has long held between the slumbering giants, each with the world held loosely in their grip. Until now.

As Harada presses his gambit to wage war for utopia, the agents of the Vine who have watched him for decades move to keep the megalomaniac in check. And if Harada wants to save the world…he’ll have to get rid of the competition. Cold war turns red hot as New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and all-star Valiant artists CAFU (UNITY) and Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK)  unfold another chapter of IMPERIUM, the comic that Herotaku calls “an entertaining, compelling read month after month”!
