In the wake of its current Harbinger Wars 2 event, Valiant Comics will be launching four new titles in the coming months - two limited series and two on-going - under the Valiant Beyond banner.
September will see the start of a new Faith limited series, Dreamside, penned by the magnificent Jody Houser, which sees one of my favourite Valiant characters venturing into the realm of dreams to protect one of her colleagues from a particularly insidious foe.
Even 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.New ongoing series Bloodshot: Rising Spirit begins in November, writers Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson and artist Ken Lashley:
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!
Before a weapon is deployed in battle, it must be designed, refined, field-tested. Bloodshot was no exception.December sees the launch of another on-going series, finally giving Livewire - a central character of the Valiant pantheon - her own title.
In the early days of the private military contractor Project Rising Spirit, the nanite-infused super-soldier who would one day become their most violent and valuable asset was a resource to be mined – and it was up to one enterprising employee, the “Memory Weaver,” to ensure he did what he was told.
But a memory is a tricky thing…and the man Bloodshot used to be won’t let go of his past so easily…
Written by Vita Ayala, with Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín on art duties.
Once, Amanda McKee, the technopathic psiot known as Livewire, knew her purpose. She wielded her machine-manipulating powers to benefit the Harbinger Foundation… until the true depths of her mentor’s cruelty were revealed.And, finally, next February, writer Andy Diggle and artist Doug Braithwaite bring us Incursion, a new limited series event.
She brought Unity to the world’s most formidable superpowered beings… until a battle between team members dissolved the group for good.
She gave hope and guidance to a ragtag band of Secret Weapons… until the U.S. government marked them for death and set her down a path of no return.
Now, in the wake of the worst disaster the country’s ever faced – one that was directly caused by her hand – Livewire must decide for herself what kind of hero she will be… if she’ll be one at all.
Beyond the margins of human reason, there lies a realm known as the Deadside – where the souls of the dearly departed linger, and where gruesome terrors lie in wait to strike out at us from the dark.
But our Deadside isn’t the only deadly dimension of its kind, and another – belonging to an alien world – is about to collide with Earth’s. With the very nature of our reality at stake, who will stand against the tide of unearthly terrors at our doorstep?
