What’s New with HARBINGER? October update
Editor’s Note: HARBINGER is our favorite Valiant title. We haven’t written much about it here recently, but that will be remedied soon. In the meantime, here is the latest news . . . .
from the official press release . . . . . . . . . ..
Valiant is proud to announce that acclaimed artist Clayton Henry (Harbinger Wars, Archer & Armstrong) has signed on as the publisher's next exclusive artist for the launch of "Resistance" – a brand new story arc beginning this January in Harbinger #20.
Henry joins artists Doug Braithwaite (Unity), Trevor Hairsine (Eternal Warrior), and Cary Nord (X-O Manowar), as well as New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (Harbinger, Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps) and acclaimed colorist Brian Reber (Unity), as the latest addition to Valiant's roster of exclusive talent.
As revealed today in an exclusive interview at Comic Vine, the best-selling Harbinger Wars creative team of Dysart and Henry will reunite for "Resistance" – an all-new jumping on point that will lead Peter Stanchek and the Renegades into the final act of their crusade against Toyo Harada…and introduce an unlikely new ally into their growing battle against the Harbinger Foundation.
Peter Stanchek and his team of teenage superhuman outlaws have decided that the best defense is a strong offense. Pursued from coast-to-coast by their would-be overlord in the Harbinger Foundation, the Renegades are about to launch a strategic strike on Harada's secret empire – and they'll start by revealing to the world just what kind of power they've been hiding all along. The ace up their sleeve? A seemingly normal teenage hacker named Ax…who knows exactly what Harada has been up to since day one...
As the latest installment of the MUST READ VALIANT campaign, Harbinger #20 is a perfect introduction to the series that Comic Vine says "[will] leave your jaw on the floor."
"This arc will be incredibly new-reader friendly... We've built a lot of great jumping-on points into the previous issues, but this will be the easiest one yet. If you've haven't read the book, this is the one to try. If friends haven't read the book, this is the one to hand to them," Dysart told Comic Vine.
Other recently announced MUST READ VALIANT milestones include Quantum and Woody #5 by award-winning writer James Asmus and rising star Ming Doyle; Shadowman #13 by the all-new creative team of Peter Milligan and Roberto De La Torre; and Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #18 by fan favorite creators Christos Gage, Joshua Dysart and Bart Sears. HARBINGER #20 (NEW ARC – RESISTANCE)
