Valiant is proud to reveal a variant cover unlike any other for Harbinger #8 by superstar creator Jeff Lemire (Animal Man, Sweet Tooth).
Rendered in ballpoint pen on ruled notebook paper, Lemire's cover is
Valiant's line-wide variant offering for January 2013, covering the
latest issue of the all-new "Renegades" arc by New York Times
best-selling author Joshua Dysart and rising star Phil Briones.
"Josh Dysart is one of my favorite people and favorite
writers in comics. We've wanted to work together for a long time now,
but things never seem to line up with both of our busy schedules. When I
heard Josh would be a part of the incredible Valiant relaunch with
Harbinger, I immediately asked editor Jody LeHeup if I could do a
variant. It may not be a full comic, but at least Josh and I have
finally done something together," said Lemire.
"I'm really excited about the high quality books Valiant
has been putting out and it's great to be a part of it in even this
small way. I was so thrilled that Jody and the Valiant guys let me go
nuts with my lo-fi ballpoint pen idea," he added. "I had a blast!"
"Jeff routinely conjures some of the most engaging images
and stories in comics and I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to
work with him again," said Associate Editor Jody LeHeup. "This
incredible cover is a testament to that fact and to his love for the
outstanding work that Joshua Dysart, Khari Evans, Phil Briones and the
rest of the Harbinger crew are doing right now."
Out of the ashes of the Harbinger Foundation, the rise of
