Review: The Harbinger #2

The Harbinger #2

Peter Stanchek is one of the most powerful psiots on the planet and one of the most feared as well, but now he’s lost his memories. As he confronts the only message left behind when he first awoke, demanding him to “BE BETTER”, Peter begins to understand the people of Psiot City need more than who he was. They need a superhero. With a new group of state sanctioned oppressors called The Warning bearing down on them, an all-new psiot raises his voice and spurs on a confrontation that only Peter Stanchek can hope to face.

I’m a sucker for a good redemption story. I’ve never made a secret of that, and so given the direction that writers Colin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing have taken with this story, it seems like it’s going to be a no-brainer for me to enjoy it. There’s not “but” coming, because I’ve really enjoyed the two issues I’ve read so far. Being able to say that comes as something of a relief given the pedigree of the Harbinger name and the weighty expectations I had as a result.

Robbie Rodriguez artwork is once again fantastic. The artist has a quality to his work that pulls you in and then throws you around. The comic looks like it is barely controlled chaos at times, reflecting what’s occurring in the story as Stanchek struggles to hold himself together. Colourist Rico Renzi enhances everything about the chaos, whilst also being able to soften the art as the story’s pacing slows down. The Harbinger #2 is a visually stimulating journey from beginning to end, and while there may be the odd page where you’re trying to make out what’s going on that really only adds to the book’s story. It’s strange to say that, because usually that’d be something I’m not a fan of, but here we are.

Stanchek’s superhero origin story continues, edging toward the inevitability of a new costume and mask emphasized by the reaction people within the story are having to his name alone (though how he’ll hide his identity with his powerset remains to be seen, so I’m curious just how much I’ll need to suspend my disbelief). So far, however, the story has been solid, and the new memory-free Stanchek means there’s a blank slate for the writers to create a new version of the Psiot without necessarily needing to keep to previous characterization.

The Harbinger as a series has delivered two really good issues so far, which is giving me a lot of excitement for to see how the creative team (rounded out by letterist extraordinaire Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou) continue Peter Stanchek’s journey. As I said, I’m a sucker for a redemption story, and so far this is delivering in every way.

Exclusive: Raze is an All-New Threat for the Valiant Universe. Debuting in Eternal Warrior: Scorched Earth

The Valiant Universe will face the terrifying flames of an all-new villain in Eternal Warrior: Scorched Earth. We have the exclusive reveal of Raze, the new threat that will debut in the graphic novel currently being Kickstarted.

Born of lava and hellish flame, the ancient fire deity Raze is an uncontrollable threat to Mother Earth, causing massive destruction and leaving only death in his wake.

Centuries ago, Mount Vesuvius tragically erupted and created mass devastation, laying waste to the great city of Pompeii and killing thousands. Gilad knew this to be the work of an ancient fire deity and stepped in as the Fist and Steel of Earth to imprison Raze for good.

Or so he thought…

As mysterious fires begin causing havoc all over the world, this generation’s Geomancer, Tama, tries to live up to her responsibilities of defending Earth while Gilad ventures off to confront his past. But they will soon discover they need each other now more than ever.

With Raze potentially freed of his imprisonment on a new path of annihilation, only the Eternal Warrior and Geomancer can hope to stand in his way to prevent his infernal flames from scorching the Earth.

Written by Tres Dean with art by Alberto Taracido, colors by Rain Beredo, and lettering by Tom Napolitano, Eternal Warrior: Scorched Earth has Gilad Anni-Padda facing an unimaginable threat.

The Kickstarter ends on December 2nd and has already unlocked numerous stretch goals like digital copies of Eternal Warrior (2014) Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.

Eternal Warrior: Scorched Earth is not just making history as Valiant’s first Kickstarter but also going to need a must get as it’s the debut of an all-new villain!

Get a first look at this terrifying new villain that will take both the Eternal Warrior and Geomancer to stop!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Black Panther #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

American Comics: A History (WW Norton) – Professor Jeremy Dauber takes readers through the history of American comics starting with the Civil War through modern times. It’s 150 years of history.

Black Panther #1 (Marvel) – John Ridley takes over Black Panther and we’re beyond excited.

DC vs. Vampires #2 (DC Comics) – It’s the latest apocalyptic spin with DC superheroes and the first issue was a solid build up with a really good unexpected twist.

Deathstroke Inc. #3 (DC Comics) – The series has been a solid take on the character without him going the “hero” route. He’s the asshole we love to see what he does next.

Harbinger #2 (Valiant) – The first issue was a solid debut that worked well for long-time fans of the characters and a jumping on point for new readers.

Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #1 (Marvel) – With a high-profile debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kate Bishop is getting a new series that should be perfect for new readers.

The History of Science Fiction Vol. 1 (Humanoids) – What will be covered and what will be left out? We want to see what gets the spotlight in this graphic novel that covers the genre from the 1800s to present day.

House of Slaughter #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Something is Killing the Children has been a hit and we’re watching this spin-off series to see if it can repeat the magic.

Hulk #1 (Marvel) – After an epic run, where do things go? We’ll find out soon!

Joy Operations #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Brian Michael Bendis brings his talent to Dark Horse with a new creator-owned series through his Jinxworld imprint.

Serial #8 (Abstract Studio) – The series has been growing on us as Zoe has been getting closer and closer to figuring out what’s going on with the serial killer Jenny and we learn more about Jenny’ motivations.

Task Force Z #2 (DC Comics) – The concept shouldn’t work but the first issue proved it can! Red Hood leads a team of revived “zombie” villains.
