But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects summoned from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course! From the minds of SECRET WEAPONS’ all-star creative team, discover the significance behind the otherwise ordinary trinkets, toys, and gadgets conjured by Owen’s otherworldly ability across a series of lavishly illustrated double-page spreads and short stories specific to each object that weave together to form one cohesive narrative…and one of the year’s most innovative single issues.
“We’re fortunate to have one of the most ambitious and hardest-working stables of creators anywhere in the industry at Valiant, and collectively, they’ve been challenging themselves to push the boundaries of the medium even farther in 2018,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “In the first few months of the new year alone, we’ll see Eric Heisserer and Adam Pollina attempt a new style of day-by-day, panel-by-panel storytelling in SECRET WEAPONS #0; a ‘black issue’ told in total darkness by Jeff Lemire in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7; and, now, another innovative SECRET WEAPONS special with a distinctive style and technique quite unlike any other I’ve ever seen attempted on the comics page.”
But first: Discover the harrowing, heartbreaking coming-of-age story of Owen Cho’s teammate, Nikki Finch, in SECRET WEAPONS #0 – the first SECRET WEAPONS zero-issue origin special! On January 3rd, superstar artist Adam Pollina (X-Force) makes his long-awaited return to full-length interiors to join Oscar-nominated sci-fi visionary Eric Heisserer for a star-studded, page-turning standalone prelude to the breakout hit series of 2017 – featuring covers by Raúl Allén (SECRET WEAPONS), Veronica Fish (Archie), rising star Sibylline Meynet, Sija Hong (NINJAK), and Adam Pollina (X-Men: Rise of Apocalypse)!

Meet high school senior Nikki Finch… She’s a gifted athlete with an unusual set of medical ailments and high-aptitude test scores that have drawn the attention of an obscure and little-known NGO calling itself the Harbinger Foundation. With seemingly limitless resources at its disposal, the Harbinger Foundation has just offered Nikki a place in their newest class of recruits for a prestigious, but secretive, mission: to unlock her hidden potential via the invasive, dangerous and often deadly process known as “psiot activation.”
If they succeed, Nikki could become an extraordinary example of Toyo Harada’s vision for the future of post-human biological superiority. If they fail, she’ll likely die on the operating table…or be locked away for future study in the mysterious research facility only known as The Willows…
An essential new chapter in the Harbinger mythos is about to be revealed as Nikki Finch – a future founding member of Livewire’s squadron of misfit telekinetics – relives the never-before-told saga of her recruitment and activation at the hands of Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation in a must-read standalone special from Oscar-nominated sci-fi visionary Eric Heisserer and comics legend Adam Pollina!
On January 3rd, the new year’s most surprising and poignant superhero origin starts here as the most formative year of Nikki’s life reveals itself one day – and one panel – at a time! Discover an all-new introduction to the world of the breakout hit series that Newsarama calls “like nothing else on the stands right now,” only in SECRET WEAPONS #0 – featuring star-studded covers by Raúl Allén (SECRET WEAPONS), Veronica Fish (Archie), rising star Sibylline Meynet, Sija Hong (NINJAK), and Adam Pollina (X-Men: Rise of Apocalypse)!
