It is interesting how complex the characters and story lines have become just in this first book.

Back in the 1990s, Valiant was epic, and Harbinger was the Valiant title that made the publisher admired by many comic book readers. It was the one book at the center of the Valiant universe; the book that all comic book readers bought up which created the demand for early issues of Harbinger at high prices. Since Valiant Entertainment re-launched in 2012, we have a brand new Harbinger #1. If you are new to the Valiant Universe, there is plenty to enjoy in this issue, even if feels like something you have read before.

Writer Joshua Dysart does an excellent job in the Harbinger storyline into the modern period. Dysart keeps everything that made the book prodigious. This is not a re-imagining in the way other recent 1990s revivals have been. Instead, it is a re-telling; a re-introduction. It's an update on the classic book that remembers exactly what we all loved about Harbinger in the first place. Peter Stanchek is more interesting character than in the 90Â's run. This comic has all the right elements for a great issue.

Valiant is doing a fantastic job. Harbinger is a well written, well drawn comic book that is worth reading.

I give this 5 out of 5 entertaimos! You would not want to miss this. You just keep begging for more.

The Valiant launch cannot be reviewed highly enough. I read comics years ago - and have gotten back into them again recently - this doesn't disappoint in any way. The characters within are round, real, and full of depth. The best thing about the comic gray nature of each character. Not every 'villain' does the wrong things. In fact, the villain, Harada, can be both hero and anti-hero.

Peter, the hero of the story, fails. He uses dark tactics - and perhaps does one of the worst things a hero could do in a story. It's left purposely ambiguous. Faith, the story's Robin - for lack of a better way to put it - is overweight, a bit crazy, and pure.

Highly recommended.

Sorry for the punny title, however that's my feelings on this tpb, as I mentioned in my Archer and Armstrong (AA) review (which I enjoyed quite a bit, btw) this book is was dethroned it from being my favorite of all of the Valiant relaunches.

Again I'll start with a little backstory, my first experience with Harbinger was with the original TPB that came bagged and with a copy of Harbinger #0, so unlike AA, I came into Harbinger with fresh eyes, since I was late to the Valiant party not reading the books until somewhere in 1993-94 when Shadowman caught my attention. Co-Created by Jim Shooter and up and coming superstar writer/artist David Lapham (a realtive newcomer to comics at that time) it was a story about a young boy who develops these extra sensory powers that propel him from a normal kid to one of two people on earth with an extraordinary gift effectively making him one of the strongest (and most dangerous) people on Earth.

So back to my subject line "I literally couldn't put it down" this is no lie, out of the four TPB's that have so far been released this is the one I read in one sitting, I couldn't stop reading, other than the basic premise and a few characters this book literally has nothing to do with the original Harbinger, Peter is more ruthless (as a kid on the run who's fended for himself would be) and what few friends he does have are not the best company. Unlike the original Harbinger where Peter is a normal kid with a normal life that totally changes when the Harbinger foundation comes on the scene.

Format: Paperback
Harbinger has consistently been my favorite title by Valiant since their relaunch. Even better than the original 90s version, it touches upon some of the same characters and issues but updates them very aptly for the times. Writer Josh Dysart does a phenomenal job of crafting flawed yet intriguing characters and making you feel connected to them. All of his characters - major and supporting -- are well defined. You won't find these super beings (they can be hard to define as either hero or villain) trying to save the world per say, but as the characters develop, you will see them grow and respond to their circumstances, sometimes in surprising ways. I can't recommend this book enough and will continue to follow its progress.

Brilliantly written and beautifully drawn - this is the mutant comic mythos updated to modern times and told honestly with dark humor, raw emotion and compelling drama. This first story arc is the introduction to Peter Stanchek, a troubled teenager with incredible psychic power's and unknown potential, an aimless street kid running from the law. And Toyo Harada, a fellow psiot and calculating leader of a global conglomerate whose aim is shaping the future of humanity by recruiting powerful kids such as Peter and indoctrinating them with his world view and beliefs. And so with little to lose, Peter joins Harada and his Harbinger Foundation ... but will this street kid with incredible powers truly join Harada in his quest to shape Humanity or will he rebel against his would be master and find his own path? This TPB is a brilliant introduction to currently the BEST COMIC BOOK SERIES out today! A MUST READ!
