HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 is the can’t-miss Valiant debut of 2016! And now the most anticipated new series of the fall is getting even bigger with a massive 40-page first issue packed with more all-star talents, can’t-miss first appearances and monumental revelations than ever before!
Valiant is proud to announce that HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new ongoing series from multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan) – is expanding to a massive 40 pages to accommodate integral new contributions and bonus content from an all-star cast of special guests… All for the standard $3.99 cover price!
Joining Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson’s already extra-sized opening salvo for Valiant’s team of high-powered teenage heroes on the run will be several of comics’ most acclaimed talents for a thrilling, widescreen expansion of one of the most important Harbinger stories told in the franchise’s nearly three-decade-long history:
• An all-new introduction written by Rafer Roberts and featuring artwork by Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) – Learn everything you need to know about the revolutionary world of Harbinger in an all-new primer! Exactly what are the extraordinary individuals called “psiots”? How many of them exist among us? What are their incredible powers? And who are the members of the secret psiot team called the Harbinger Renegades?
• The first chapter of an all-new monthly origin story, written by Rafer Roberts and featuring artwork by Juan Jose Ryp (BRITANNIA) – A four-part prologue, set before the events of HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 and featuring the first appearance and origin of Alexander Solomon, a major new Valiant antagonist and one of the most important characters in the Valiant Universe in 2017 and beyond.
“In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be revealing several pieces of key information about just how important the events of HARBINGER RENEGADES will be to the whole of the Valiant Universe,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Simply put: If there is one Valiant title not to be missed this fall, it’s HARBINGER RENEGADES #1. What happens in the opening pages of Rafer and Darick’s first issue will be of long-term importance not just in 2017, but in 2018 and beyond.”
Anyone you know could become a psionically powered “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. Your neighbor. Your boss. Your best friend. Your kids.
Six months ago, a secret team of renegade whistleblowers leaked the existence of these extraordinarily dangerous individuals to a stunned world. Today, all across the country, crude, DIY psiot activation attempts have left hundreds brain damaged…or worse. The emergence of a new psiot in a community often leads to riots and mass violence. Gun sales are through the roof. America is terrified of what could happen next.
With this revolutionary upheaval now in motion, Kris Hathaway, John “Torque” Torkelson, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and Peter Stanchek are about to discover their calling. Together, the HARBINGER RENEGADES are moving from town to town, building their ranks, and subverting authority one mind at a time…and setting out to prove once and for all that behind their power, there has always been a purpose.
On November 16th, Rafer Roberts, Darick Robertson, Raul Allen, and Juan Jose Ryp unleash Valiant’s untamed team of runaways and malcontents onto a world that’s more distressed – and more distrusting – than ever before. As the country threatens to overflow with hostility, terror and paranoia, the time has come to reveal the truth about the secret power that now threatens to divide and conquer a nation! From the best-selling, award-winning adventures of HARBINGER comes an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT for Valiant’s critically lauded superteam, only in HARBINGER RENEGADES #1 – featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl)!
