Valiant has presented a first look at the covers for Harbinger Wars 2: Aftermath #1, a standalone epilogue that hits stores on September 26, 2018. As the summer event comes to a close, Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar) and legendary artist Adam Pollina (X-Force) sort through the rubble of the most brutal confrontation in the Valiant Universe – and discover what lies beyond the bloodshed.
The power’s back online and the fighting is over…but who are the real victors of Harbinger Wars 2, and what was truly lost in the carnage? For those who survived the terrible onslaught, and who must now witness the devastating aftereffects of their actions, will there ever be peace again?
On September 26, Kindt and Pollina pick up the pieces of the consequential clash in Harbinger Wars 2: Aftermath #1 – featuring covers by Raúl Allén (Secret Weapons), Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Salvation), and Felipe Massafera (Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern).
Then on the heels of Harbinger Wars 2, Valiant’s “Beyond” initiative launches into 2019 with an all-new slate of series, starting in September with Faith: Dreamside #1. This fall, uncover the secrets of the Dreamside as Eisner Award-nominated writer Jody Houser (Faith) and rising star M.J. Kim (Faith’s Winter Wonderland Special) continue the adventures of the high-flying icon.
Before Faith “Zephyr” Herbert gained the power of flight, joined the Harbinger Renegades, and soared through the skies of Los Angeles, deep down she was always a hero at heart. But what’s a hero to do in the face of a foe that exists only in nightmares? Face them head-on, of course! To protect the dreams of her teammate, Animalia, Faith must venture into a fantastical new realm the likes of which the Valiant Universe has never seen… and she’ll need some help from the world’s premiere parapsychologist, Dr. Mirage, to make it back with her subconscious mind still intact.
Once the dust of Harbinger Wars 2, has settled, Beyond will round out the end of Valiant’s 2018 publishing schedule and drive forward into the new year with Faith: Dreamside #1 in September, Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 in November, Livewire #1 in December, and Incursion #1 in February 2019.
