Valiant Solicitations for June 2013

Valiant Solicitations for June 2013

Harbinger Wars! Harbinger Wars! Harbinger Wars! And some other stuff too.



Source: Press Release

Our friends at Valiant have sent over their solicitations for what's coming up this June. The big thing, of course, is the Harbinger Wars crossover, which will be three months in. If you're planning a trip to Vegas, you better get there before it gets blown up. In non-Harbinger Wars events, Archer & Armstrong appear headed for Area 51, because of course they are.  Speaking of aliens, X-O Manowar's "Planet Death" storyline reaches its conclusion. Meanwhile, the new Dr. Mirage must help Shadowman deal with all the stuff going on in the Deadside. For good measure, Bloodshot's second trade paperback will also come out in June.

After Dr. Emanuel Kuretich freed Bloodshot from Project Rising Spirit, he promised Bloodshot that the answers to his identity would be found inside PRS' secret Nevada facility. He lied.

Now that the kids are out and have ignited a Harbinger War in the middle of the Vegas strip, Bloodshot is all that stands between them and the opposing forces of Toyo Harada and Peter Stanchek.  But Bloodshot hasn't forgotten about Kuretich. And he's about to reap his revenge.
