Joshua Dysart and artist Mico Suayan are reaching into the past of the fledgling Valiant Universe next February with Harbinger #0. The story goes into the origin of Toyo Harada, who has been both mentor and villain to our hero Peter Stanchek.
The issue, a standalone story, will show how Harada moved from a young man discovering superpowers to the "despot" leader of the Harbinger Foundation.
Harbinger #0 will feature a standard cover by Mico Suayan and Valiant's first-ever wraparound gatefold variant by Lewis Larosa. Like most of their other issues, a special Pullbox Exclusive Variant will also be available for the issue, only to fans that pre-order it through their local comic shop. That cover is by a pair of Claytons - Henry and Crain.
The issue, with all three covers, goes on sale February 6, 2013.
