Valiant takes on gaming en route to The Harbinger Wars


My ardor for Valiant Comics, whose virtues I couldn’t stop extolling last summer, have cooled. Yes, a sad affair. Maybe what we need to spice up our relationship again is a war. A good ol’ fashioned HARBINGER WAR.

Which, incidentally, Valiant is bringing to everyone starting in April. It looks to be Valiant’s first company wide crossover since re-launching the line last year. To help celebrate and get the word out, Valiant is going the 8-bit nostalgia route (via artist Matthew Waite) with all of its April covers (see below) and releasing a game called “Harbinger Wars: Battle For Los Angeles” (ed. note: Wasn’t that a Rage Against the Machine album?) game for both Android and iOS. Here is where I would link to it so you could check it out but apparently it hasn’t been released yet. SLACKERS.

After the jump, read the official solicitation for Harbinger Wars, your very own checklist and a screenshot from the upcoming game. If that’s your kind of thing but c’mon, we all know it is.
