Wondercon 2014: Harbinger #25 and Harbinger: Omegas #1 this Summer!

Spinning out of the deadly consequences of “Death of a Renegade” in next week’s Harbinger #22, Valiant has announced two major milestones coming this summer for the wildly acclaimed ongoing series Harbinger by writer Joshua Dysart!

As detailed at WonderCon 2014, the title will reach its long-planned finale with July’s Harbinger #25 – an oversized, anniversary milestone issue featuring the final chapter of Dysart’s long-running confrontation between Harbinger’s super-powered team of teenage Renegades and their omega-powered ex-mentor, telekinetic zealot Toyo Harada.

Clocking in at a massive 48 pages, Harbinger #25 will also feature the return of original series artist Khari Evans – plus all-new stories and artwork from an incredible cast of talents, including Barry Kitson, Justin Jordan, Lucy Knisley, Riley Rossmo, Ron Wimberly, and many, many more.

Then, in August – out of the ashes of Harbinger #25‘s devastating climax – find out what happens next to the most powerful players in the Harbinger universe as Joshua Dysart and heat-seeking artist Rafa Sandoval pick up of the pieces with an all-new, three-issue mini-series – Harbinger: Omegas #1 (of 3) – that closes the door on one generation of Harbinger Renegades…and prepares the foundation for another.

This is an all-new starting point that reveals what happens when the full extent of Harada’s secret superhuman empire is exposed to the public, and just the how the surviving members of the Renegades recover from a catastrophic loss that will change their lives… their team… and their destinies forever.

Preview: Armor Hunters #1 – Robert Venditti and Doug Braithwaite Launch X-O Manowar into the Valiant Crossover Epic of 2014!

Valiant has released a preview of Armor Hunters #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s action-packed summer crossover event by writer Robert Venditti and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite! Featuring an armor-plated, wraparound Chromium cover by red-hot artist Jorge Molina, this is the best chance yet to jump into the world of Valiant’s chart-topping heroes – just as X-O Manowar goes to head-to-head with a team of hardened hunter-killers with a closely guarded link to the very origins of his armor.

When Aric of Dacia returned to Earth with the stolen X-O Manowar armor of an alien race, he thought he finally found a weapon to guard the peace and kingdom he’d struggled so long to secure. But now, a relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the armor and all like it – have found their final target. The Armor Hunters are coming. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

Valiant has released a first look inside Shadowman: End Times #1 (of 3) – the oversized, 40-page FIRST ISSUE of an all-new, standalone adventure that will push New Orleans’ nocturnal guardian to a perilous new tipping point! From master storyteller Peter Milligan and acclaimed artist Valentine De Landro, start reading here on April 30th with a brand new introduction to the series that Bloody Disgusting calls “infectious” as the newly anointed Shadowman, Jack Boniface, meets his End Times head on!

Jack Boniface thinks that he’s finally fixed his life – and the source of the dark power inside him. But when a figure from the past emerges to reveal the troubling truth about his destiny, the latest Shadowman will be forced to run a gauntlet of his darkest fears realized: the rise of a wild new pantheon of Voodoo loas… the return of his father, Josiah…and the earthly restoration of his oldest and deadliest enemy, Master Darque!

Shadowman is about to get pushed to the edge…but can Jack Boniface survive the plunge?
