Harbinger: Children of the Eighth Day, (Valiant, 1992).
If Valiant ever elaborated on the meaning of the subtitle Children of the Eighth Day, I haven't run across the explanation.  It's straightforward enough I suppose, based on the biblical notion of the seven-day cycle, with the Eighth Day thus implying the death or destruction of the last cycle and the rebirth of the new. [...]
