As it continues to expand the Secret Weapons team, Valiant Entertainment also expands the Secret Weapons series with an all-new one-shot – Secret Weapons: Owen’s Story #0.
Owen Cho is a conjurer, which can be a great deal more frustrating than it sounds. You see, Owen’s “psiot” ability – unlocked at great expense and even greater danger by Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation – allows him to materialize objects out of thin air, but he can’t control what to summon or when it might arrive. Worse yet, his gift has landed him in a heap of trouble over the years… Namely, it got him locked away in The Willows – an off-the-grid facility for abstruse superhumans like himself – before Livewire and her team of like-minded “secret weapons” gave him a path with purpose…
But what do you do with a heap of undesirable objects summoned from parts unknown, anyway? Have a garage sale, of course! From the minds of SECRET WEAPONS’ all-star creative team, discover the significance behind the otherwise ordinary trinkets, toys, and gadgets conjured by Owen’s otherworldly ability across a series of lavishly illustrated double-page spreads and short stories specific to each object that weave together to form one cohesive narrative…and one of the year’s most innovative single issues.
To bring this story to readers, Valiant has assembled the team of Eric Heisserer, Raul Allen, and Patricia Martin.
“We’re fortunate to have one of the most ambitious and hardest-working stables of creators anywhere in the industry at Valiant, and collectively, they’ve been challenging themselves to push the boundaries of the medium even farther in 2018,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “In the first few months of the new year alone, we’ll see Eric Heisserer and Adam Pollina attempt a new style of day-by-day, panel-by-panel storytelling in SECRET WEAPONS #0; a ‘black issue’ told in total darkness by Jeff Lemire in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7; and, now, another innovative SECRET WEAPONS special with a distinctive style and technique quite unlike any other I’ve ever seen attempted on the comics page.”
Secret Weapons: Owen’s Story #0 is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 14, 2018.
