Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of IMPERIUM #2 – the second devastating issue of the new VALIANT NEXT ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER, Unknown Soldier) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice)! The battle for utopia continues here on March 4th as an all-new member – the technologically enhanced soldier-for-hire Gravedog – steps into the ranks of the world’s most feared superhuman army!

Newly outed as one of the world’s most powerful superhumans and wanted by every authority on Earth, omega-level telekinetic Toyo Harada has abandoned the life he once knew. Out of options and run to ground, the former head of the Harbinger Foundation has retreated to a remote corner of the globe to begin building his vision of a better tomorrow…beginning with with the superhuman force capable of fighting for it. With a coalition of the brutal, barbarous, and insane recruited to enforce his will, Harada will engineer the peace he means to give the world…by starting the war that could end it all. THIS IS IMPERIUM.

A psychic dictator, an inhuman robot, a mad scientist, a murderous alien, and a super-powered terrorist are about to try and take over the world…and you’re going to be rooting for them every step of the way. The shocking first story arc, “Collecting Monsters,” from Valiant superstars Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite continues right here on March 4th in IMPERIUM #2 – featuring covers by Raul Allen (RAI), Doug Braithwaite (UNITY), Butch Guice (Captain America), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT)!
