Valiant Announces First Crossover 'Harbinger Wars'

We were teased last week, but now we know, in April, Valiant Comics is launching, "Harbinger Wars," a four-issue mini-series that will serve as the company's first crossover event.

"Wars" will bring Valiant titles "Bloodshot" and "Harbinger" together in a battle for control of the powerful harbingers. Valiant says:

For decades, Toyo Harada's Harbinger Foundation and the government's own Project Rising Spirit have been waging a secret war over the rarest resource known to man – the unwieldy superhuman telekinetics known as harbingers. Over the years, they've each collected a small army of these empowered children to inflict their agendas on the world. But now the reformed harbinger hunter known as Bloodshot needs to atone for his crimes – and he's going to start by releasing two dozen of the most volatile harbingers from their PRS prison and into the world.

Bloodshot wants to lead them. Toyo Harada wants to control them. And, Peter Stanchek, a teenage renegade with immense powers of his own, wants to give them free rein. But the runaway children of PRS have their own ideas for the future…and, as the body count rises, the Valiant Universe will realize that power this immense cannot be contained. It must be exercised. Who will survive the Harbinger Wars?

"Harbingers Wars" will be written by Joshua Dysart and Duane Swierczynski, with art by Clayton Henry.

Following the fourth and final issue of "Harbinger Wars" the telekinetic conflict will spill into the pages of "Bloodshot" #10-13 and "Harbinger" #11-14.
