Posted by

Local Comic Shop Day® 2017 on November 18th, 2017 with a special, limited-edition release of the SECRET WEAPONS DELUXE EDITION OVERSIZED HC – the first oversized hardcover collection of the year’s best-selling independent limited series from Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (ARRIVAL) and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Patricia Martin (NINJAK) – to participating retailers!

Secret Weapons TPB #1

Collecting SECRET WEAPONS #1-4 with a cover by multiple Eisner Award nominee David Mack (Fight Club 2) and exclusive to Local Comic Shop Day 2017, this oversized hardcover collection of Valiant’s sold-out, critically acclaimed series will not be available for sale anywhere else, and arrives weeks before the SECRET WEAPONS TPB arrives in stores on December 13th.

The SECRET WEAPONS DELUXE OVERSIZED HC will feature a beautifully presented, deluxe repackaging of the critically lauded series, and feature more than 20 pages of bonus material including character designs, process art, and more that won’t be found anywhere else! Eric Heisserer – the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter of ARRIVAL and Valiant’s upcoming BLOODSHOT and HARBINGER feature films – joins forces with Harvey Award-nominated visionary Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) here for an all-new Valiant adventure… launching Livewire and an extraordinary new team of heroes into the fight of their lives!

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…
