Valiant Comics is planning a major upheaval in the near future with Harbinger: Renegades #5. This includes the death of a well-known figure in the books–and since this is Valiant, we’re talking about, the death really will have a lasting impact on everyone and everything around. According to Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani, “The events of this issue are so secret, we can’t even show you the pages yet.” He adds that the death is still a closely-guarded secret inside Valiant as well as out, “Outside of the creators and myself, only a handful of Valiant staffers even know the true identity of the character that is on the line.” The events in Harbinger #5, then, will affect everyone in the universe from here on out.
The Renegades have only just been re-united, but it doesn’t look like they’re going to stay that way. “Massacre” comes out On July 12th, 2017. It is written by Written by Rafer Roberts with art by Darick Robertson.

Synopsis for Harbinger: Renegades #5 ‘Massacre’
Toyo Harada’s former protege – Alexander Solomon, a “psiot” with the ability to predict and analyze potential futures – has been waiting for this moment. With the Harbinger Renegades – Peter Stanchek, Faith, Kris Hathaway, and Torque – now reunited as a result of his covert manipulations, his ultimate gambit can now begin. But he’s not the only one who has been watching. Major Charlie Palmer has just re-assigned a new division of the militarized psiot hunters codenamed H.A.R.D. Corps to active duty…and they’re about to bring a torrent of blood and calamity roaring into the streets of a major American metropolis for an all-out firefight.
The Harbinger Renegades. Livewire. Alexander Solomon. Generation Zero. Toyo Harada. Secret Weapons. Imperium. None of them are safe…and, when the smoke clears, a pivotal Valiant hero will become the first sacrifice of the massive Harbinger War that is to come.
