If this doesn't motivate you to give Valiant a shot, I don't know what will. 'Harbinger Wars' -- Valiant's first big crossover event -- is quickly approaching and to help promote it the publisher is releasing an 8-bit side-scrolling game called 'Harbinger Wars: Battle for Las Vegas.'

It'll be available on iOS and Android devices in mid-April and will be a free download. You can play as Bloodshot or Peter Stanchek as you take on a Project Rising Spirit facility in Sin City. To celebrate the game, Valiant is also offering these amazing 8-bit variant covers.

== TEASER ==

HARBINGER WARS #1 hits shelves April 3rd.

If I had more money I'd be buying Valiant.

Too bad I don't.

I know their TPBs are pretty cheap.

Those variants are sweet. If I can find them, I may just have to buy them all (despite only reading Shadowman in monthly format)

Love Valiant and those covers . Frickin' awesomeness times everything!!!

I don't understand the reasoning behind making 8-bit videogame homages for a comic book. I don't like 8-bit art and I won't be buying these variant covers. I'm sure someone will like them though.

The actual game itself sounds pretty cool though.

Oh I want that game to be available for Kindle soon...and I love this idea of 8-bit comic covers! Oh childhood it!

#31 Posted by soir8 (27 posts) - - Show Bio

I love all of these. Especially the X-O Manowar Metroid homage. Valiant are probably going to overtake Image as my favourite comic book publishers, I'm loving all their series at the moment.

Well done Valiant!
