Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Harbinger #8 – the next installment of the brand new, critically acclaimed "Renegades" storyline by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier) and fan favorite artist Lee Garbett (Batman: R.I.P.)! With Toyo Harada and the Harbinger Foundation in hot pursuit, Peter Stanchek and his band of outlaw superhuman runaways have just found their newest member. But can even the Renegades handle a wild card like the musclebound powerhouse called Torque?
In a shed in the backwoods of Northern Georgia lives a meek, sequestered teen named John Torkelson. Raised just this side of feral, and on a steady diet of MMA and reality TV, fried catfish and Cheeto pie, he's a firm believer that women should be seen and not heard (though he really hasn't met many). But when four strange, super-powered teenagers suddenly appear in the woods outside his shed, Torkelson's life takes a turn he never could have imagined. Now the boy his poppa called "Stump" is about to become more man than he could ever imagine. But then...what exactly is a "real man"? For that matter, what's a real hero? Only one thing's certain, the Renegades are about to get a hell of a lot stronger.
