Valiant has released a CENSORED sneak preview of the highly classified, tightly guarded script of Harbinger Renegade #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of “Massacre”, A SHOCKING NEW JUMPING-ON POINT that will claim the life of a major comics icon and begin The Road to Harbinger Wars 2! On July 12th, the march toward Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event starts here as multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts and superstar artist Darick Robertson send in the H.A.R.D. Corps for a surgical strike on a major American metropolis…and wind up drawing one of Valiant’s most beloved heroes into the fatal crossfire for a sacrifice that will send shockwaves through the entire Valiant Universe!
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!
