SECRET WEAPONS: OWEN’S STORY #0 – the next MUST-READ STANDALONE SPECIAL examining the origins and private lives of Livewire’s misunderstood squadron of superhuman talents! On March 14th, in the wake of January’s acclaimed SECRET WEAPONS #0, the complete creative team behind SECRET WEAPONS’ sold-out run – including Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Patricia Martín (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) – returns to chronicle a day in the all-too complicated life of Secret Weapons recruit Owen Cho…in a groundbreaking storytelling style that pushes the boundaries of the comics medium!
Owen Cho is a conjurer, which can be a great deal more frustrating than it sounds. You see, Owen’s “psiot” ability – unlocked at great expense and even greater danger by Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation – allows him to materialize objects out of thin air, but he can’t control what to summon or when it might arrive. Worse yet, his gift has landed him in a heap of trouble over the years… Namely, it got him locked away in The Willows – an off-the-grid facility for abstruse superhumans like himself – before Livewire and her team of like-minded “secret weapons” gave him a path with purpose…
But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects summoned from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course! From the minds of SECRET WEAPONS’ all-star creative team, discover the significance behind the otherwise ordinary trinkets, toys, and gadgets conjured by Owen’s otherworldly ability across a series of lavishly illustrated double-page spreads and short stories specific to each object that weave together to form one cohesive narrative…and one of the year’s most innovative single issues.
Enter the world of comics’ most stunning new series right here on March 14th, as Owen Cho takes his turn in the spotlight alongside Livewire, Nikki Finch, and Avi Malakar for Valiant’s next self-contained entry point in the tradition of SECRET WEAPONS #0:
