Preview - Imperium #1

If Valiant knows anything, it's launching new properties that fit within their universe. And more often than not, those characters aren't necessarily the main characters of series, but entertaining nonetheless. And Imperium #1 is one of those books, written by Joshua Dysart and illustrated by Doug Braithwaite.

Toyo Harada is the most dangerous human being on the planet. Imbued with incredible powers of the mind, he has spent his life guiding humanity from the shadows. But today he is a wanted man. His powers are public knowledge, his allies have turned to enemies, and he is hunted by every government on the planet.

Instead of surrendering, Harada has one last unthinkable gambit to play: to achieve more, faster, and with less, he will build a coalition of the powerful, the unscrupulous and the insane. No longer content to demand a better future, he will recruit a violent legion from the darkest corners of the Earth to fight for it. The battle for utopia begins now.

The book is in stores February 4 with interiors below.
