The complete SECRET WEAPONS creative team – Academy Award nominee Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín (HARBINGER WARS 2) – reunites for an all-new, standalone tale spotlighting the Harbinger Foundation’s 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 – allows him to materialize objects out of thin air…but he can’t control what to summon or when it might arrive. But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects conjured from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course!

Before the Secret Weapons take center stage in HARBINGER WARS 2 this summer, witness one of the year’s most unlikely and unorthodox origin stories as Heisserer, Allén, and Martín come together once again to recount a life lived one item at a time in “Owen’s Story”!

Eric Heisserer, Raúl Allén & Patricia Martín Host a Stunning Superhero Origin in Secret Weapons: Owen’s Story #0 This March!

Valiant has released a first look inside Secret Weapons: Owen’s Story #0 – the next MUST-READ STANDALONE SPECIAL examining the origins and private lives of Livewire’s misunderstood squadron of superhuman talents! On March 14th, in the wake of January’s acclaimed Secret Weapons #0, the complete creative team behind Secret Weapons’ sold-out run – including Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín – returns to chronicle a day in the all-too complicated life of Secret Weapons recruit Owen Cho…in a groundbreaking storytelling style that pushes the boundaries of the comics medium!

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!

The comics crossover event of 2017! Valiant’s superhero icon meets Rae Sremmurd, the multiplatinum hip-hop superstars behind the #1 hit “Black Beatles,” for an unforgettable showdown at the crossroads of life and death!

Before they were dominating the music charts and selling out stages worldwide, Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee were just a pair of talented, but otherwise ordinary, brothers…until a twist of fate delivered them fame and wealth beyond their wildest imagination. Now, years later as hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, the brothers are bound for New Orleans…and an otherworldly encounter with the supernatural guardian called Shadowman, the lone line of the defense between our world and the Deadside that lies beyond…

The Valiant Universe collides with two of the most influential artists in hip-hop today as Shadowman and Rae Sremmurd come face to face to forge a new legend of fame, fortune, and magic – as told by rising star Eliot Rahal (BLOODSHOT’S DAY OFF) and renowned artist Renato Guedes (Wolverine)!

Death and the deity!

The horrifying truth behind Rome’s grisly string of murders has finally come to light… but will Antonius Axia and his mysterious new partner – the gladiator Achillia – be able to stomach it? It’s a race against the clock to stop a serial killer – who may very well be the vengeful spirit of Apollo himself — before it strikes again! But should Antonius and Achillia fail in their mission, they’ll condemn not only Rome…but those Antonius holds dear as well.

Visionary creators Peter Milligan (Shade, the Changing Man) and Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) bring the latest case for history’s first detective to a chilling close…and forever alter the history of civilization itself!

A (literal) battle of the minds!

Generation Zero are trapped inside the Heroscape – a twisted, extra-dimensional realm where they can explore the world as it looks through someone else’s eyes… And, unfortunately, it seems that most of their friends and neighbors have some pretty messed up stuff going on up there! They led insurgencies and counter-strikes, but can anything in this team’s precision military training prepare them for the darkness that lurks at the heart of Rook’s collective unconscious?
