VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT FOR JUNE

HARBINGER WARS 2 #2

Written by Matt Kindt, art by Tomas Giorello, covers by J.G. Jones, Mico Suayan, Juan Jose Ryp, Felipe Massafera.

And so the unstoppable X-O Manowar enters the fray! From East to West, the nation has been cleaved down the middle as Livewire's defensive attack on the U.S. power grid envelops America in darkness and sets the stage for the biggest clash of powers ever witnessed... On one side, Peter Stanchek's ragtag team of Renegades -- alongside their newly activated army of untrained and wildly unstable psiots -- ready themselves for an unsparing firefight with H.A.R.D. Corps and the agents of Omen. On the other, Ninjak and Bloodshot prepare to enter Livewire's domain inside blacked-out Los Angeles. But as the casualties pile up and the losses mount on both sides, none of them will be ready to confront the full fury of raw power personified as X-O Manowar makes his long-awaited return after a year of self imposed exile among the stars...and delivers a single concussive strike that will send shockwaves across the whole of the Valiant Universe!

32 pages, $3.99, in stores on June 27.

Written by Matt Kindt, art by Trevor Hairsine, covers by Lewis LaRosa, Jim Mahfood, Veronica Fish and Philip Tan.

As Harbinger Wars 2 rages, witness the birth of "Barbarians." Long ago, on the bloodstained battlefields of centuries past, Aric of Dacia cut a swath through the armies of the ancient world as a brash but cunning warrior -- and all without the X-O Manowar armor. Now, the untold story of Aric's swashbuckling youth -- and how it unknowingly forged his fate as the defender of 21st century Earth -- can finally be told as the man who would be X-O Manowar leaves the Visigoth homeland behind to infiltrate the Roman Empire's gleaming capital from within!

Enter Bloodshot 4001 -- a strange, gunslinging echo of Bloodshot's mind, body, and soul that is now more machine than man. But when our century's Bloodshot finds himself delivered to the dawn of the 41st century with one last mission to fulfill, two Valiant legends will finally come face to face...just as the secret revelation that binds them together across the ages will forever reshape Bloodshot's place at the center of the Valiant Universe!

Written by Daniel Kibblesmith, art by kano and Francis Portela, cover by Julian Totino Tedesco.

Sometimes...you embrace your destiny. And sometimes...you and your troublemaking adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome superpowers. As a result of their accident, Eric and Woody Henderson -- aka Quantum and Woody -- must "klang" their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you're not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody's birth father really is...and where he's been hiding all these years.

With great power comes great sibling rivalry! This winter, you'll believe two men and one goat can split a one bedroom apartment and still be a credible threat to evil and injustice everywhere when Quantum and Woody make headlines and take names! Collecting Quantum and Woody! #1--5.

Can two busted pairs become four of a kind in time to defeat the Hobo King, save the day, and make it back home for happy hour? Let's hope so because these guys make a really, really bad team. (And you don't even want to know about the Goat.)
