An Early Look at Eric Heisserer and Adam Pollina’s Secret Weapons #0, Out this January

Valiant has revealed your first lettered look inside Secret Weapons #0 – an all-new, standalone prelude to the best-selling comics phenomenon from Academy Award nominee Eric Heisserer and legendary artist Adam Pollina! Before the fall of the Harbinger Foundation… Before the opening pages of Secret Weapons #1… Dig deep into the inner life of one of the Valiant Universe’s most extraordinary heroes on January 3rd with a breathtaking introduction from two of Valiant’s most gifted storytellers – revealing, at last, the heartbreaking origin of one of the Secret Weapons’ most unusual members!

Meet high school senior Nikki Finch… She’s a gifted athlete with an unusual set of medical ailments and high-aptitude test scores that have drawn the attention of an obscure and little-known NGO calling itself the Harbinger Foundation. With seemingly limitless resources at its disposal, the Harbinger Foundation has just offered Nikki a place in their newest class of recruits for a prestigious, but secretive, mission: to unlock her hidden potential via the invasive, dangerous and often deadly process known as “psiot activation.”

If they succeed, Nikki could become an extraordinary example of Toyo Harada’s vision for the future of post-human biological superiority. If they fail, she’ll likely die on the operating table…or be locked away for future study in the mysterious research facility only known as The Willows…

An essential new chapter in the Harbinger mythos is about to be revealed as Nikki Finch – a future founding member of Livewire’s squadron of misfit telekinetics – relives the never-before-told saga of her recruitment and activation at the hands of Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation in a must-read standalone special from Oscar-nominated sci-fi visionary Eric Heisserer and comics legend Adam Pollina!

A New Take on Peter Pan, The Wendy Project is Out Today

Out today from Super Genius and Papercutz, The Wendy Project is a 96 page fresh, deeply moving and modern take on the world of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and an extraordinary story about memory and magic, life and loss. Featuring stunning art by Veronica Fish, The Wendy Project is the graphic novel debut of actress, screenwriter and The Wendy Project creator Melissa Jane Osborne. Their collaboration is breathtaking and beautiful and a testament to the power of self-expression and storytelling in the wake of tragedy.

It is a late summer night when 16-year-old Wendy Davies crashes her car into a New England lake with her two younger brothers in the backseat. When she wakes in the hospital, she is told that her youngest brother, Michael, is dead. Wendy — a once rational teenager — shocks her family by insisting that Michael is alive and in the custody of a mysterious flying boy. Placed in a new school, Wendy negotiates fantasy and reality as students and adults around her resemble characters from Neverland. Given a sketchbook by her therapist, Wendy starts to draw. But is “The Wendy Project” merely her safe space, or a portal between worlds? As Wendy works her way through her emotions of loss, sadness and survivor’s guilt she chooses to confront her feelings and, contrary to Peter’s motto . . . grow up.

This publication marks the first time The Wendy Project has been available in book form, following its release online and at comic conventions as a four issue comic book series from Emet Comics, an LA-based publisher dedicated to telling stories created by women and featuring strong female protagonists.
