Valiant has released a first look inside Harbinger Renegade #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of “MASSACRE”, a high-powered jumping-on point that will mark the fall of one of the Valiant Universe’s most powerful icons…and jumpstart The Road to Harbinger Wars 2, Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event! On July 12th, the most shocking comics moment of the summer takes aim as multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts and superstar artist Darick Robertson launch the bloodied path towards the cataclysm that will shape the Valiant Universe in 2018 and beyond…and ignite a ruthless showdown with the H.A.R.D. Corps. that will leave a beloved comic book icon dead in their sights…
Retailers and fans, please be advised: Due to the shocking on-panel death in Harbinger Renegade #5, Valiant will also be taking the unprecedented step of wrapping each issue in a specially manufactured advisory overlay – complete with a clearly marked warning label – that will ship on all copies of the issue at no extra-added cost.
Toyo Harada’s former protege – Alexander Solomon, a “psiot” with the ability to predict and analyze potential futures – has been waiting for this moment. With the Harbinger Renegades – Peter Stanchek, Faith, Kris Hathaway, and Torque – now reunited as a result of his covert manipulations, his ultimate gambit can now begin. But he’s not the only one who has been watching. Major Charlie Palmer has just re-assigned a new division of the militarized psiot hunters codenamed H.A.R.D. Corps to active duty…and they’re about to bring a torrent of blood and calamity roaring into the streets of a major American metropolis for an all-out firefight.
The Harbinger Renegades. Livewire. Alexander Solomon. Generation Zero. Toyo Harada. Secret Weapons. Imperium. None of them are safe…and, when the smoke clears, a pivotal Valiant hero will become the first sacrifice of the massive Harbinger War that is to come.
Featuring covers by Darick Robertson, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Clayton Crain, Marc Laming, and Monika Palosz!
