Valiant Debuts Animated Trailer for SECRET WEAPONS #1 – The Most Talked-About Series of the Summer!

Ambitious New Series from Oscar Nominee Eric Heisserer & Visionary Artist Raul Allen Joins THE ROAD TO HARBINGER WARS 2 on June 28th

Valiant is proud to present the official animated trailer for SECRET WEAPONS #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of THE MUST-READ NEW SERIES from Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (screenwriter of the international smash-hit ARRIVAL and the upcoming BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER feature films from Sony Pictures) and visionary artist Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) with Patricia Martin (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! On June 28th, Valiant’s most important new series of the summer joins THE ROAD TO HARBINGER WARS 2 – the publisher’s seismic 2018 crossover event – as Livewire steps to the fore to lead an extraordinary new team of Harbinger Foundation escapees…and reveals a hidden, high-stakes corner of the Valiant Universe never before explored…

“Eric and Raul are taking the craft of comics storytelling to a new level with SECRET WEAPONS #1 – together, they might just be one of the finest teams working together anywhere in the sequential art medium at the moment,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “The importance of the events they’re building with the series only continue to grow and are already reverberating outward… Together with HARBINGER RENEGADE, this series will be a major component in what contributes to the coming of HARBINGER WARS 2 in 2018. From Livewire’s heightened profile to the emergence of a powerful new team of psiots, pay close attention to SECRET WEAPONS #1 as THE ROAD TO HARBINGER WARS 2 ramps up in June, July, and beyond.”

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…
