Valiant Entertainment has provided CBR with an exclusive first look at two variant covers for Joshua Dysart and Mico Suayan’s “Harbinger” #0. Valiant’s “Pullbox Variant,” with breakdowns by Clayton Henry and digitally colored by Clayton Crane, features “Harbingers” antagonist Toyo Harada sending a telekinetic wave down a crowded street, while Valiant’s first gatefold cover by Lewis Larosa details the whole of Harada’s history to date.
Series writer Joshua Dysart spoke with CBR about the zero issue during New York Comic Con 2012, stating one of the major goals of the zero issue was the flesh out the mythology of the new “Harbinger” world. “Sometimes I think it’s enough to explore the world with your character. I’m always a big character first, plot second kind of guy, but having said that, we do hope that it ties into something that’s coming soon,” Dysart told CBR. “That’s something we need to work out. We’re very much in the editorial process of building something large that’s approaching fast. I want to tie it into that, but the truth of the matter is we’re in the middle of writing the issue right now. Whether we can pull that off or not, I leave you to decide when the issue finally hits — but that is the hope. The hope is that we can somehow really create texture to the universe with the book and really flesh out excitement for one of our primary characters — Harada — and at the same time speak to coming events in the current Valiant Universe.”
