School is out. Of control.

Inside the Harbinger Foundation, Peter Stanchek thought he would finally find freedom. Instead, he found a prison of his own design. As Peter begins to yearn for the comforts of his old life, he’s about to discover that leaving Harada’s program isn’t easy – it’s impossible. As rebellion brews among his pupils, Harada must ask himself: has he been building an ally in Peter all this time – or the perfect enemy?

    In today's comic marketplace, where companies are more concerned with the gimmicks of crossovers and reboots, “Harbinger” is proudly waving the flag for strong storytelling and artwork. Joshua Dysart and Khari Evans are knocking this book out of the park month after month. Read Full Review

    All in all--I'm really enjoying the series, and look forward to seeing what I think's about to come with a group of characters in this title. In the meantime, we're getting some strong foundation that will hopefully lead to a lengthy, solid run of this title. Read Full Review

    "Harbinger" is turning into a must-read because of Dysart's exceptional characterization, and the team dynamics coming down the line should be spectacular. If "Harbinger" #4 is any indication, the Valiant Entertainment relaunch is one of the best things to happen to superhero comics for a while. Read Full Review

    Each Valiant title seems to have its own charm, its own reason to read the series and fall in love with it. Additionally, each one has its own reason for why it’s incredibly good and worth reading. I can tell you all the reasons I have for loving and reading this book, but if you’re not reading it for some reason then you need to give it a shot. There is no possible way you’ll be disappointed unless you hate great stories. Read Full Review

    Khari Evans' artwork is good stuff. He's assisted by two other artist here, and they all seem to gel. The book doesn't feel disjointed. If there is any complaint that can be leveled at the artwork, it's that all the characters seem to have a very similar facial structure. They all kind of look the same. Other than that, this is a solid looking book with an interesting story. It's worth reading. Read Full Review
