by Staff

 

Valiant have released a first look inside Harbinger Renegade #5, the book which is the first issue of the “Massacre” storyline where a major Valiant hero is slated to meet their end.

This issue is also a jumping-on point and it will “jumpstart” the Road to Harbinger Wars 2, the massive 2018 crossover event coming up from Valiant.

Harbinger Renegade #5 arrives on July 12th, written by multiple Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan). The comic is set to “ignite a ruthless showdown with the H.A.R.D. Corps, according to Valiant.

Valiant advises retailers and fans that due to the “shocking on-panel death” in this issue, Valiant will for the first time also be wrapping each issue in a specially manufactured advisory overlay–complete with a clearly marked warning label–that will ship on all copies of the issue at no extra-added cost.

Harbinger Renegade #5 features covers by Darick Robertson (Happy!), Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man), Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Marc Laming (Invaders), and Monika Palosz (Divinity III: Stalinverse):

Here’s a full description for Harbinger Renegade #5:

Toyo Harada’s former protege – Alexander Solomon, a “psiot” with the ability to predict and analyze potential futures – has been waiting for this moment. With the Harbinger Renegades – Peter Stanchek, Faith, Kris Hathaway, and Torque – now reunited as a result of his covert manipulations, his ultimate gambit can now begin. But he’s not the only one who has been watching. Major Charlie Palmer has just re-assigned a new division of the militarized psiot hunters codenamed H.A.R.D. Corps to active duty…and they’re about to bring a torrent of blood and calamity roaring into the streets of a major American metropolis for an all-out firefight. 

The Harbinger Renegades. Livewire. Alexander Solomon. Generation Zero. Toyo Harada. Secret Weapons. Imperium. None of them are safe…and, when the smoke clears, a pivotal Valiant hero will become the first sacrifice of the massive Harbinger War that is to come.

And here’s our first look at the beginning of “Massacre”:

Harbinger Renegade #5 arrives as a game-changer on July 12th, 2017.
