SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN’S STORY #0
Returns for a Second Printing in May!
Valiant Entertainment announced that SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN’S STORY #0 – another essential special issue from the world of 2017’s best-selling independent limited series by Academy Award nominee Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Patricia Martín (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) – has sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves everywhere with the SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN’S STORY #0 SECOND PRINTING!
On May 2nd, the complete SECRET WEAPONS creative team reunites for an all-new, standalone tale spotlighting a day in the all-too-complicated life of Owen Cho, one of Livewire’s new recruits and quite possibly the Secret Weapons’ most unique talent of all!
Owen Cho is a conjurer, which can be a great deal more frustrating than it sounds. You see, Owen’s “psiot” ability – unlocked at great expense and even greater danger by Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation – allows him to materialize objects out of thin air, but he can’t control what to summon or when it might arrive. Worse yet, his gift has landed him in a heap of trouble over the years… Namely, it got him locked away in The Willows – an off-the-grid facility for abstruse superhumans like himself – before Livewire and her team of like-minded “secret weapons” gave him a path with purpose…But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects summoned from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course!
Before the Secret Weapons take center stage in HARBINGER WARS 2 this summer, witness one of the year’s most unlikely and unorthodox origin stories on May 2nd as Heisserer, Allén, and Martín come together once again to recount a life lived one item at a time in SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN’S STORY #0!
Plus, also arriving on May 2nd: HARBINGER WARS 2 PRELUDE #1, a STANDALONE INTRODUCTION TO THE VALIANT UNIVERSE’s most powerful forces from master storytellers Eric Heisserer (Arrival), Raúl Allén (SECRET WEAPONS), and Patricia Martín (BLOODSHOT REBORN)!

The Harbinger Renegades have been scattered across America… battered by the brutal MASSACRE that decimated their ranks.
Now, Livewire – leader of the Harbinger Foundation’s most unusual group of SECRET WEAPONS – is about to incite the coast-to-coast clash that brings them all together in an inescapable collision of power.
Pushed to the brink by the government she once served, Toyo Harada’s former star pupil is about to make an irreversible decision… and deactivate America’s power supply in a last-ditch bid to save the extraordinary individuals called “psiots” from extinction. As a nation goes dark, the paths of our world’s most powerful heroes will soon converge…and the stage will be set for the most cataclysmic confrontation in the history of the Valiant Universe!
On May 2nd, witness the ground-zero moment for the future of the Valiant Universe – and the perfect introduction to all of Valiant’s biggest icons from one of the most acclaimed creative teams in comics today – in HARBINGER WARS 2: PRELUDE #1! Featuring covers by Raúl Allén (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Michael Cho (Batwoman), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), and Felipe Massafera (Flashpoint: Abin Sur)!
