Harbinger Wars 2 #1 – Matt Kindt & Tomás Giorello Charge into Valiant’s Earth-Shattering Comics Event on May 30th!
Valiant has revealed a first look within the pages of Harbinger Wars 2 #1 (of 4), the FIRST ISSUE of the summer’s most anticipated comics crossover event! On May 30th, writer Matt Kindt and artist Tomás Giorello – the best-selling team behind X-O Manowar – push the Valiant Universe to its breaking point and beyond with a world-shaking opening volley to begin the senses-shattering clash of 2018!
For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic “harbingers” secretly live among us…with the potential to become active at any moment…has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point…
Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.
In the East, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Stanchek, is leading his band of Renegades across the country, activating any potential psiots willing to join them, and building an insurrection force of ultra-powerful and unwieldy new abilities that will soon bring war to Omen’s doorstep…and the unstoppable force known as X-O Manowar raging back to Earth…
In the West, Livewire – the telekinetic technopath with the ability to bend machines and computers to her will – will be forced to choose between her former allies…or her newfound team of Secret Weapons. As the situation escalates beyond human control, the United States will be plunged into darkness from coast to coast, launching Bloodshot and Ninjak into a dangerous mission to neutralize their one-time teammate – and setting the stage for the most shocking, most violent, and most consequential clash of powers ever witnessed in the history of the Valiant Universe!
Featuring covers by J.G. Jones, Mico Suayan, Juan José Ryp, Felipe Massafera, and Lewis LaRosa!
