Writers: David Lapham
MR, Color, 160 pages

Whether you’re looking for a detective, hired muscle, a blackmailer, or bedroom entertainment for the ladies, Dan’s your man. He’s not afraid of anything, and why should he be? He’s completely invincible. You can beat him with a lead pipe, stick him in the oven, throw him off a bridge, or shoot him in his noggin, and it’s all the same to him. All he needs out of life is just enough cash to keep him in cigarettes and beer for a night or two, and beyond that, he doesn’t have a care in the world. But Dan’s bohemian paradise is all about to change. Back before he was so unharmable, he left a few loose ends. Now those loose ends are growing up and their mother’s been murdered, which not only means that Dan has to solve his most personal case yet, but he’s now legally responsible for four human beings who are anything but unharmable… This first volume collects the complete first story arc from issues 1-6 of Dan. Explosive crime noir as written by a master of the genre, Eisner Award-winner David Lapham!

Now the boy his poppa called “Stump” is about to become more man than he could’ve ever imagined. 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.

Cover by DOUG BRAITHWAITE

A better future. Or no future at all.

Super-powered teenager Peter Stanchek is on a dangerous path. Skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Peter is quickly realizing that he’s a psionically-charged “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. But Peter’s plight has not gone unnoticed. Respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger Toyo Harada is about to offer Peter the chance at the things for which the boy has always longed — family, inner peace, self-control — and induct him into the sprawling, secret network of conspiracy and subversion known as the Harbinger Foundation. Now Peter begins his long road towards a destiny that will shake the very foundations of the Valiant Universe. His first lesson? All power comes with a price.

Collecting the first five issues of the critically acclaimed series by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier), acclaimed artists Khari Evans (Carbon Grey) and Lewis Larosa (PunisherMAX), this is the perfect place to catch up with the series that Comic Book Resources calls “superheroes at its best”.
