VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT FOR JULY

FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #1

A spectacular summer event! This summer, every second counts when Faith is pushed into a centuries-spanning fight for existence alongside the greatest heroes of the Valiant Universe...past, present, and future!

Faith "Zephyr" Herbert -- former member of Unity, current Harbinger Renegade, and Los Angeles' #1 superhero -- is the universe's last, best chance at survival! Centuries from today, a devious artificial intelligence has unleashed a blistering attack on the very foundations of time...one that is unwriting history from beginning to end! Now, with her options exhausted, Neela Sethi, Timewalker -- the self-appointed protector of what is and will be -- has returned to the 21st century to recruit Earth's greatest champions of today and tomorrow to oppose this existential threat...and she needs Faith to lead them! But why Faith? And why now?

The Road to Harbinger Wars 2 -- Valiant's 2018 event -- starts right here with a bang that will reverberate throughout the entire Valiant Universe.,.and claim the life of a major hero!

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.
