Remember that Valiant Comics tease that heralded the arrival of Arrival’s screenwriter in a secret project.
Well details have now been released, and Valiant has the power of language in their palm to put into a new superhero canon. Arrival screenwriter Eric Heisserer will be launching a new superhero Comic for Valiant entitled Secret Weapons.
Sounds ominous, and the character designs do tickle ones curiosity:
Is it me, or does it look like Owen could effortlessly kick my ass?
Plus check out this electric cover art by Raul Allen, as well as panel art below via Vulture:
Secret Weapons will be a four-issue miniseries following the character Livewire as she encounters psiots that Harada had cast aside in an isolated facility due to their seemingly useless powers: a boy who causes things to faintly glow, a girl who can communicate with birds, and so on. Seeing their potential, Livewire gathers them together to form a team that will take on a foe called Rexo — an homage to a character with that name from the earlier incarnation of Valiant.
Valiant’s Secret Weapons launches in July 2017
