The Omega Age begins in Harbinger #0.
Source: Press Release
It's time to take a look back at where things got started out for those psiot brats in Harbinger. Specifically, let's take a look back at the first psiot, Toyo Harada, head of the Harbinger Foundation. With roots in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima at the end of World War II, Harada's story seems to be told from both ends of history. As the modern day Harada leads a naive young telekinetic child into an uncertain fate, he relates his own origin, thus providing some shading for the events we've seen in the book so far. Harbinger #0 is a precursor of sorts to the upcoming "Harbinger Wars" crossover, so if you're interested in that story, you may want to check this out.
The Omega Age Begins in HARBINGER #0
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #0 by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier) and red-hot artists Mico Suayan (Batman: The Dark Knight, The Punisher) and Pere Pérez (Aquaman)! On February 6th, go back to the beginning to witness the ascent of the most powerful man in the Valiant Universe with an all-new entry point into the acclaimed series Ain't It Cool News calls "simply astonishing"!
Long ago, in the aftermath of history's first atomic holocaust, Toyo Harada discovered a vision for the perfect future – one that he has vowed to realize with or without the consent of the human race. With a private army of hyper-telekinetics at his side, this omega-powered harbinger of humanity's potential has spent decades reshaping the world to conform to his will. Now here, for the very first time, witness the origin and rise to power of this malevolent mind that would destroy the Valiant Universe rather than see it slip through his fingers.
Before the paths of Bloodshot and Harbinger collide this April in Harbinger Wars #1 (of 4), discover an essential chapter of the Valiant Universe's past – and one that could define its future – only in Harbinger #0, featuring a standard cover by Mico Suayan and a wraparound gatefold variant by Lewis Larosa!
