I've written before --- pretty recently, in fact --- about how one of Valiant's greatest strengths as a company is how well it can build its titles around high concept stories that make it easy for new readers to jump on. So with that in mind, when writer Rafer Roberts describes his upcoming Harbinger: Renegades book with artist Darick Robertson as, "Jack Kirby's Trainspotting," you know they're onto something.

When Harbinger: Renegades returns in November, Roberts and Robertson are reuniting the team that was shattered after their last adventure to take on the future of the Valiant Universe --- and you can check out a preview below!

Six months ago, a secret team of renegade whistleblowers leaked the existence of these extraordinarily dangerous individuals to a stunned world. Today, all across the country, crude, DIY psiot activation attempts have left hundreds brain damaged…or worse. The emergence of a new psiot in a community often leads to riots and mass violence. Gun sales are through the roof.
America is terrified of what could happen next.
With this revolutionary upheaval now in motion, Kris Hathaway, John “Torque” Torkelson, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and Peter Stanchek are about to discover their calling. Together, the HARBINGER RENEGADES are moving from town to town, building their ranks, and subverting authority one mind at a time…and setting out to prove once and for all that behind their power, there has always been a purpose.
On November 16th, stoke the flames of a nation on fire as Rafer Roberts and Darick Robertson activate Valiant’s most-demanded team of heroes and misfits in HARBINGER RENEGADES #1– featuring covers by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Kano (Daredevil), Pere Perez (FAITH), Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Bob Layton (Iron Man), and Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl)!
