Valiant Comics has released the first lettered preview of Harbinger #1 by Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans, part of the "Summer of Valiant" relaunch due in stores on June 6. Taking the concept of a psychically-powered superhero and turning it darkly on its ear, the central hero of Harbinger is a man who slowly realizes that his powers might change the world. The preview also includes a cart for fans to print out and give their retailer in order to subscribe to the title, or qualify for the company's much-talked-about pullbox variant cover program. Read about it in their own words below.
Valiant is proud to present a six-page lettered preview of Harbinger #1 -- the first issue of a super-hero legend reborn from New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier, BPRD) and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans (Carbon Grey)! Teenager Peter Stanchek is on a dangerous path, but wields an even more dangerous power. Skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Pete is quickly realizing that he's a psionically-powered "harbinger" with the potential to control minds, manipulate matter, and forever alter the course of human history. But behind the scenes and half a world away, Pete's plight has not gone unnoticed by respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger, Toyo Harada. Will Harada offer Pete the chance at the things for which he's longed -- family, inner peace, control? Or will this unlikely hero find himself inducted into a secret network of conspiracy and subversion?Read minds. Bend steel. Break all the rules. This June, the foundations of the Valiant Universe will shake as Peter Stanchek learns the true price of power, only in Harbinger #1 - on sale June 6th!
