Valiant has released first looks at HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 & QUANTUM AND WOODY! #1:

First Look: Matt Kindt & Doug Braithwaite Declare HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 – Shipping in December!

As first revealed at Newsarama, Valiant is proud to debut your first look inside HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 – an exclusive, limited-edition prelude to the publisher’s powerful 2018 crossover event that will only be made available EXCLUSIVELY to fans that redeemed mail-away coupons in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1-4! This December, the march toward the biggest and most ambitious Valiant event ever attempted starts right here with a standalone introduction from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, DIVINITY) and explosive artist Doug Braithwaite (X-O MANOWAR, ARMOR HUNTERS) that will set the stakes for next summer’s seismic comics conflict!

Available only to fans that have redeemed four mail-away coupons included in HARBINGER RENEGADE #1-4, HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 will lay the foundation for the bloodied future that has been foreseen by the world’s most high-powered threat: Alexander Solomon, Toyo Harada’s former protege and the Renegade’s newest adversary! But there are those that even Solomon fears… And, as the march toward HARBINGER WARS 2 builds over the coming year, a new and terrible force is about to reveal itself to the heroes of the Valiant Universe!

Featuring the Harbinger Renegades, H.A.R.D. Corps, and surprise guests assembled from throughout the Valiant Universe, HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 has been produced as a reward for Valiant’s most ardent longtime fans and the events of the issue will be entirely self-contained. As such, HARBINGER WARS 2 #0 will enhance, but not directly impact comprehension of, the primary HARBINGER WARS 2 comics event coming soon to comic shops everywhere.

THENOn May 2nd, 2018, two of the most powerful creative minds in comics today – New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, DIVINITY) and Academy Award nominee Eric Heisserer (SECRET WEAPONS) – join the powerhouse artistic team of Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR, NINJA-K) and Raúl Allen (SECRET WEAPONS) for the FIRST ISSUE of the summer’s biggest comics event in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4)!

Utilizing an expansive, new and never-before-attempted comics format, each issue of the HARBINGER WARS 2 event will come fully loaded with 48 pages of content and two complete, full-length 22-page stories chronicling dueling fronts in the nationwide battle that will soon consume the Valiant Universe’s most powerful forces. The first, by writer Matt Kindt and artist Tomás Giorello – the blockbuster creative team that launched X-O MANOWAR, the most successful independent series of 2017 – will feature the head-on collision of the Harbinger Renegades and the newly returned X-O Manowar. The second, by writer Eric Heisserer and artist Raúl Allen with Patricia Martín – reuniting the all-star creators behind SECRET WEAPONS, 2017’s most successful independent limited series – will thrust Livewire and her new team of recruits into the center of a power struggle with the potential to tear America apart…

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 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 powers 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!

Next summer, the cataclysmic comics event of the New Year erupts in full force as X-O Manowar, Livewire, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, the Secret Weapons, Ninjak, and a cast of thousands draw their battle lines in HARBINGER WAR 2 #1 (of 4) –  featuring covers by superstar artist J.G. Jones (Final Crisis) and more top talents soon to be revealed!

Valiant’s QUANTUM AND WOODY! #1 Adds Even More Excess to THE MOST VARIANT COVER OF ALL TIME!
Due to Popular Demand! Now with Extra-Added Glow-in-the-Dark Goat Action!

Oh no, look at what you made us do!

Valiant can hardly believe it’s announcing that THE MOST VARIANT COVER OF ALL TIME! – an unholy and experimental combination of comic book history’s most noted, notorious, and obnoxious cover gimmicks adorning one highly-limited edition of December’s QUANTUM AND WOODY (2017) #1 – is adding yet another classic to its record-setting battery of comic-book enhancements!

That’s right… For the first time anywhere, Valiant can now confirm that QUANTUM AND WOODY (2017) #1’s THE MOST VARIANT COVER OF ALL TIME! will now feature a fully GLOW-IN-THE-DARK rendition of the one and only Goat, officially merging NINE OF THE MOST POPULAR COVER ENHANCEMENTS EVER PRODUCED onto one collection-busting variant cover that will forever live in infamy!

They said it couldn’t be done. More importantly, they said it shouldn’t be done. And, every step of the way, we refused to listen. Now, there is no turning back…and the variant cover to end all variant covers will adorn select copies of the FIRST ISSUE of the ALL-NEW and UNTRUSTWORTHY ONGOING SERIES from rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and explosive artistKano (Daredevil) once and for all time! Featuring cover artwork by Valiant superstar Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and a cabal of top-secret special guests, THE MOST VARIANT COVER OF ALL TIME! will be the first-ever embossed, lenticular, die-cut, individually hand-numbered, chromium-enhanced, and (now) glow-in-the dark comic book cover – all before being hand-stickered with a randomized fourth Valiant hero, and printed with two unique foils and iridescent fifth ink!

Attention retailers: One copy of the QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 Most Variant Cover of All Time! may be ordered by retailers who place a qualifying order of 250 copies or more. The QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 Most Variant Cover of All Time! is strictly limited to one copy per qualifying store. For instructions on how to qualify for the QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 Most Variant Cover of All Time!, please refer to the Diamond Retailer Site under order code: OCT171908.
But, hey, there’s an awesome story inside, too! (Crazy, right?) The most heartfelt, most eye-popping, and most punching-est superhero-action-family-drama-buddy-comedy throwdown of the year starts right here on December 20th when all-star creators Daniel Kibblesmith and Kano throw the comic book industry’s sense of propriety straight into the wood chipper for QUANTUM AND WOODY (2017) #1!
Sometimes…you embrace your destiny. And sometimes…you and your trouble-making adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome super-powers. As a result of their accident, Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – must “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you’re not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody’s birth father really is…and where he’s been hiding all these years.
PLUS: In honor of Quantum and Woody’s upcoming overthrow of comic shops everywhere, each of the new series’ first 12 issues will also feature “EXTREME” ULTRA-FOIL VARIANTS — a dynamic, new(ish) cover treatment featuring artwork by superstar artist Geoff Shaw (God Country), EMBOSSEDand ENHANCED with AUTHENTIC COMICS FOIL FROM THE ‘90s!
Available at the standard cover price with no minimum order qualifications for retailers, relive the face-melting radditude of the era that gloriously birthed Beavis and Butthead Ren and Stimpy Quantum and Woody into comics history as Valiant’s “EXTREME” ULTRA-FOIL VARIANTS kick nostalgia in the nards!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: Fans and collectors can get their chase on with Valiant’s “EXTREME” ULTRA-FOIL CHASE VARIANT subset! Each month, in the tradition of comics’ most highly sought-after oddities and error editions, Valiant will produce a single, STRICTLY LIMITED-RUN VARIANT of Geoff Shaw’s “EXTREME” ULTRA-FOIL artwork with A RARE, SPECIALIZED and SUPREMELY WACKY ‘90s FOIL!
On December 20th, big trouble is coming to a comic shop near you in QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 – featuring covers by Julian Totino Tedesco (Original Sin), Geoff Shaw (Thanos), Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects), Neal Adams (Green Lantern/Green Arrow), and Clayton Henryalongside every gimmick known to man, now including state-of-the-art GLOW-IN-THE-DARKtechnology!
