Jeff Lemire has had a busy year. Along with continuing his critically-acclaimed work on Sweet Tooth
for Vertigo, his run on Animal Man
has been considered among the highlights of DC's New 52 initiative, and the Underwater Welder
, his creator owned book from Top Shelf, is a New York Times bestseller and one of the most highly regarded graphic novels of 2012. Again, he's had a busy year. Fortunately for the folks at Valiant Comics, the popular creator managed to find some free time to put together a variant cover for the upcoming Harbinger #8
, which you can check out after the cut.

The Renegades recruit their newest member – 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 outlaw teenagers suddenly appear in the woods outside his shed, Torkelson's life takes a turn he could've never imagined. Now the boy his poppa called "Stump" is about to become more man than he could've 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.
