Eric Heisserer, Raúl Allén & Patricia Martín Present Secret Weapons: Owen’s Story #0 – Coming in March!

Valiant has announced that the world of 2017’s best-selling independent limited series is once again expanding for another essential special in Secret Weapons: Owen’s Story #0! On March 14th, the complete Secret Weapons creative team – including Academy Award nominee Eric Heisserer and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín – reunite for an all-new, standalone tale spotlighting a day in the all-too complicated life of Owen Cho, one of Livewire’s new recruits and quite possibly the Secret Weapons’ most unique talent of all!

Owen Cho is a conjurer, which can be a great deal more frustrating than it sounds. You see, Owen’s “psiot” ability – unlocked at great expense and even greater danger by Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation – allows him to materialize objects out of thin air, but he can’t control what to summon or when it might arrive. Worse yet, his gift has landed him in a heap of trouble over the years… Namely, it got him locked away in The Willows – an off-the-grid facility for abstruse superhumans like himself – before Livewire and her team of like-minded “secret weapons” gave him a path with purpose…

But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects summoned from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course! From the minds of SECRET WEAPONS’ all-star creative team, discover the significance behind the otherwise ordinary trinkets, toys, and gadgets conjured by Owen’s otherworldly ability across a series of lavishly illustrated double-page spreads and short stories specific to each object that weave together to form one cohesive narrative…and one of the year’s most innovative single issues.

Featuring covers by Raúl Allén, rising star Sibylline MeynetSija Hong, and Leif Jones!
