VALIANT and CBLDF Team Up for Exclusive GILBERT HERNANDEZ HARBINGER #25 SDCC Liberty Variant
Valiant is proud to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) with the HARBINGER #25 SDCC Liberty Variant, a limited edition release of July’s 48-page anniversary spectacular that features a brand new cover by Harvey Award-winning cartoonist and industry icon Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets, Marble Season, Sloth)! Debuting this July exclusively at Comic-Con International in San Diego, California, the HARBINGER #25 SDCC Liberty Variant will be limited to 750 copies and feature Hernandez’s first-ever rendition of the Harbinger Renegades, Valiant’s best-selling teenage superteam.
In addition to a new cover by Hernandez on behalf of CBDLF, the 48-page HARBINGER #25 milestone issue also features contributions from a star-studded roster of comics talents, including a lead story by the founding creative team of Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars) and Khari Evans (Archer & Armstrong), and new stories and artwork from Vivek J. Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle), Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX), Dan Goldman (Red Light Properties), Clayton Henry (Archer & Armstrong),Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), Rafer Roberts (Carpool Buddies of Doom),Lucy Knisley (Relish: My Life in the Kitchen), and Barry Kitson (Empire).
“It is an enormous honor for both Valiant and myself to work with the legendary Gilbert Hernandez for one of the most vital causes in our medium today, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Gilbert’s cover is an amazing addition to HARBINGER #25′s already stellar line-up, and one that adds even more resonance to our celebration of one of the most beloved teams in the Valiant line.”
To celebrate this milestone collaboration, CBLDF will host a group signing at Comic-Con International on Saturday, July 26, during which Hernandez will sign copies of the HARBINGER #25 SDCC Liberty Variant alongside New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart, New York Times best-selling writer and Eisner nominee Vivek J. Tiwary, and acclaimed cartoonist Lucy Knisley. The signing will begin at 12:00 P.M. PT sharp at CBLDF booth #1920 inside the San Diego Convention Center.
Hernandez’s HARBINGER #25 SDCC Liberty Variant will be available exclusively at the CBLDF’s booth (#1920) inside the San Diego Convention Center and via the CBLDF website (cbldf.org). All proceeds will directly benefit the First Amendment legal and education work of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, an organization that works to protect the freedom to read.
Valiant Entertainment has been a supporter of CBLDF since 2012, and a Corporate Member of the Fund since 2013. This marks the second variant cover Valiant has created as a Comic-Con International exclusive for the fund.

Joshua Dysart, Dinesh Shamdasani, and friends sign at both Collector’s Paradise locations on Wednesday June 6th!
Collector’s Paradise would love to invite you to the LA Release Signings for HARBINGER #1, a hot new release from Valiant Entertainment, with writer Joshua Dysart and special guests, including (confirmed) Valiant Founder Dinesh Shamdasani and more!
Valiant, once the third biggest publisher in comics (after Marvel & DC) is back, with a huge hit, X-O Manowar, which sold more copies this year than any independent comic book. Now Valiant is following XO with a fantastic first issue of Harbinger, a fresh new take on discovery of powers and the powers that compete for the newly “discovered” talent.
We will hold two signing events, both on Wednesday June 6th. First, in our Valley store, from 12pm to 3pm, Joshua Dysart will sign copies of Harbinger #1. Each copy will come with a Certificate of Authenticity, signifying that it was signed during our Release Signings.
Then, from 5pm to 8pm, Joshua will sign at our Pasadena location. At both signings, we plan to have special guests, to be announced closer to the time of the signing.
