Valiant Solicitations for August 2013

Here's a look at what Valiant has on tap this August.


Source: Press Release

Our friends at Valiant have sent over the solicitations for this August. It'll be a notable month, since by that point, the big Harbinger Wars crossover will have ended, and we get to see the new lives of the Harbinger Renegades and Bloodshot. Outhouse favorite Matt Kindt joins the Valiant pool of creators as he writes Bloodshot's origin in Bloodshot #0. Meanwhile, X-O Manowar returns to Earth to fight The Eternal Warrior, who can be seen in his original form in Valiant Masters: The Eternal Warrior vol.1 (also, the third X-O trade comes out in August.). All this, plus dinosaurs in Archer & Armstrong and a a stunning betrayal in Shadowman

But which memories are real? Which families? Which children? Is Bloodshot many men...or no man at all? Is he simply a soulless killing machine or something more? Who is responsible? And why have they engineered the most dangerous weapon ever conceived by man? This issue holds the answers…but also reveals that we may have been asking the wrong questions all along…

Caught in the jaws of the Faraway!
 
General Redacted has laid claim to the greatest secret in a time-lost dimension that’s practically built on ‘em. Must be a doozy, huh?

Now, it’s down to Archer & Armstrong to run the greatest infiltration/liberation/inebriation mission history has ever known, which would be a cakewalk if its wasn’t for all the UFOs, hostile natives and, of course, the dinosaurs. Yup, could definitely do without those dinosaurs.
