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! 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.

VARIANT COVERS

Before the Secret Weapons take center stage in HARBINGER WARS 2 later this year, witness one of the year’s most unlikely and unorthodox origin stories as Heisserer, Allén, and Martín come together again to recount a life lived one item at a time in SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN’S STORY #0 – featuring covers by Raúl Allén (NINJAK), rising star Sibylline Meynet, Sija Hong (NINJAK), and Leif Jones (GENERATION ZERO)!
