Toyo Harada's last stand! The future of Harbinger starts here with a star-studded, 48-page anniversary milestone - packed with brand new contributions from an all-star cast of creators and shocking new revelations about the fate of Valiant's teenage superteam!
A Renegade has fallen and, now, there is no turning back. Stripped of his allies and all sense of self-preservation, the world's most powerful "harbinger," super-powered billionaire Toyo Harada, is about to inflict a terrible reckoning on a world he thought he could control...and everything we thought we knew will be forever changed in its wake.
Original series creators Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans reunite to deliver a devastating climax to the second year of the series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls "the crown jewel of Valiant's lineup" - and officiates the "Death of a Renegade" with all-new artwork and stories from an incredible roster of award-winning talents, including Dan Goldman (Red Light Properties), Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), Barry Kitson (Empire), Lucy Knisley (Relish: My Life in the Kitchen), Andrew Pepoy (Fables), Rafer Roberts (Carpool Buddies of Doom), Riley Rossmo (Drumhellar), Vivek J. Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle), and more!
