Valiant Goes 8-Bit!!!

The Valiant was big in the early ’90s and is having a throwback to video games you could finish in one sitting.  Leading up to its big summer crossover, Valiant has released Harbinger Wars:  Battle for Las Vegas for iOS and Android devices.  In addition to the side scrolling game that shows events leading up to the big summer crossover, Valiant has another fun set of variant covers for its comics paying homage to classic video games like Donkey Kong (Archer & Armstrong), Double Dragon (Harbinger), Metroid (X-O Manowar), Contra (Bloodshot) and Final Fantasy (Shadowman).
