Press Release

Cable has fallen, and the events of Extermination have left a hole in the X-Men family. What comes next??

In the wake of Cable’s death, his adopted daughter Hope Summers is attempting to deal with her loss – but a dark and terrifying path beckons her, and the X-Men’s own Jean Grey may be her only hope for survival!

This December, CABLE creative team Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler re-team for a special one-shot to say good-bye to the time-traveling, fan-favorite mutant – featuring covers by Geoff Shaw and a special back-up story that celebrates the life of Nathan Summers, from legendary X-Men series writer Chris Claremont! 

“This issue is our chance to say a proper farewell to Cable, to honor his legacy, and to really see the immense impact the time travelling mutant had on those closest to him,” said Nadler. “Most importantly, it's about how the Summers family copes with grief, and the difficulty of forging ahead. The issue is packed with fan favorite X-Men from all different eras, and we're super excited to be bringing them together, despite the somber occasion.”

Don’t miss the X-Men story everyone will be talking about – X-MEN: THE EXTERMINATED #1 arrives in comic shops this December!

First Look HARBINGER WARS 2 #4 – The Final Battle Commences in August!

Posted By Sean Tucker

Valiant is proud to present your first look at the covers for HARBINGER WARS 2 #4 (of 4) – an unstoppable pulse-pounding climax in the SEISMIC SIX-PART CROSSOVER EVENT that will wreak havoc across the landscape of the Valiant Universe! On August 29th, it all ends here as Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, ETERNITY) and superstar artist Tómas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR) bring the cataclysmic showdown to an unforgettable, heart-stopping conclusion… and when the dust settles, nothing will be the same!

We called it the biggest, most impactful, most ambitious Valiant event ever attempted – and we meant it! From across the Valiant Universe, the paths of all of the world's most formidable heroes – X-O Manowar, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, Ninjak, the Secret Weapons, H.A.R.D. Corps, and dozens of newly activated psiots – have finally converged, drawn together by their old ally Livewire's last-ditch effort to protect the powerless.

Now, the long-brewing battle between Valiant's greatest icons will finally reach the stratosphere – literally – and, out of the ashes, a new order for the Valiant Universe will be hewn as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and comics juggernaut Tomás Giorello present the MUST-READ comics showdown of 2018! On August 29th, no one gets out unscathed in HARBINGER WARS 2 #4 – featuring covers by J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA), Felipe Massafera (Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern)!

But first! Jump on board the astonishing first issue of HARBINGER WARS 2 when it descends on comic book stores everywhere this month on May 30th! This summer, the most anticipated event in Valiant’s publication history begins in full force as Matt Kindt and Tomás Giorello crack the Valiant Universe in two in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4)!

For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic “harbingers” secretly live among us – with the potential to be activated at any moment – has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point…

Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.

In the East, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Stanchek, is leading his band of Renegades across the country, activating any potential psiots willing to join them, and building an insurrection force of ultra-powerful and unwieldy new abilities that will soon bring war to Omen’s doorstep…and the unstoppable force known as X-O Manowar raging back to Earth.

In the West, Livewire – the telekinetic technopath with the ability to bend machines and computers to her will – will be forced to choose between her former allies…or her newfound team of Secret Weapons. As the situation escalates beyond human control, the United States will be plunged into darkness from coast to coast, launching Bloodshot and Ninjak into a dangerous mission to neutralize their one-time teammate – and setting the stage for the most shocking, most violent, and most consequential clash of powers ever witnessed in the history of the Valiant Universe!

On May 30th, master storytellers Matt Kindt and Tomás Giorello offer up an unprecedented collision of Valiant heroes as  X-O Manowar, Livewire, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, the Secret Weapons, Ninjak, and a cast of thousands draw their battle lines in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by J.G. Jones(Wanted), Mico Suayan (MOON KNIGHT), Juan José Ryp (NINJA-K), Felipe Massafera (Flashpoint: Abin Sur), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT SALVATION)!
