    Armour Hunters Harbinger issue 3 provides a satisfying conclusion to Generation Zero's arc in this story whilst setting the stage for things to come in the main Harbinger title. The whole book from start to finish and a pleasure to read, new readers will have to look to jump on at the beginning of the Armour Hunters crossover but, for those already invested in the crossover or Harbinger they will lap up this issue thanks to the strength of Dysart's writing and Gill & Fajardo's art.

    SUMMARYArmor Hunters: Harbinger #3 is a solid conclusion to the series as it does an excellent job in wrapping up Generation Zero's involvement in the Armor Hunters event as well as addressed the aftermath in Mexico City. The parallel drawn between Generation Zero's predicament after escaping Harada's group and Mexico City's predicament was powerful and worked on many levels. And as a result the characters are so intriguing I want to know even more about them and their stories. And there's plenty of action in this issue and it's both gripping and electrifying due to the characters' powers and the wonderful artwork. I don't know how the other Armor Hunter series will end but hopefully they're all as satisfying as this one because now I'm a fan of this team. Read Full Review

    There isn't a single tie-in I could say you want to overlook. Armor Hunters: Harbinger is one of those you want to be reading if you find yourself invested in the Armor Hunters event. A self-contained story that manages to get a lot of characterization for this group in only 3 issues. For three issuesArmor Hunters: Harbinger is worth picking up. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Sep 9, 2014

    Despite sticking solely to action for most of the issue, Dysart chooses to round out the mini series with an ending that is emotionally impactful. This mini series has centered far more around the members of Generation Zero than it has the remaining active members of The Renegades, who are largely just supporting casting characters. The ending narration, over the course of the last four to five pages, brings their arc full circle, truly establishing them as a tight knit family. The whole idea of being connected by some type of shard consciousness is great, and it's easy to see the contrast between them and the Renegades. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 10, 2014

    Armor Hunters: Harbinger #3 proves to me that Marvel and DC both need to pay attention to how these smaller companies handle events. From Zenescope to Top Cow and beyond we've seen developers take opportunities like this and run with them in a way that expands their cast but also makes tie-ins like this one worthwhile. For that reason this one comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 10, 2014

    This is a great outline to how an event book tie-in should work. It added to the overall story that's taking place in Armor Hunters, but more importantly it set the stage for the characters to continue after the event. There are so many comics that have failed to do that just this year alone, so when one gets it right" it's refreshing. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 10, 2014

    It ends up being an okay issue, and perhaps one that holds the key to the overarching conflict of Armor Wars in the form of the unkillable lady (though I don't know for certain if that's the case without reading more books, I'll wager) and at least delivers some effective horror and battle sequences. Armor Wars " Harbinger #3 isn't exactly what the title promises, but isn't bad by any means, just somewhat expected. Read Full Review

    There's a lot a blatant exposition in the dialog, which was informative for someone unfamiliar with these characters like myself, but it was obvious. The story is simple, relevant, and well executed; you pretty much get what you pay for, and the art is good. This one fared well as far as tie-ins go.
