    Despite being a filler issue, HARBINGER RENEGADE #8 is an emotional rollercoaster that expertly leverages Kris Hathaway's inner struggle. Read Full Review

    Harbinger never sidesteps the difficulty of survival. These people have had to do terrible things to stay alive, and those actions have an emotional weight and cost. We see it when Kris tries to reconnect with her estranged family, and we see it in their youngest member. It truly makes for a compelling war story. Read Full Review

    If you are following any Valiant titles, you really do need to be reading this series. If you aren't reading Valiant, you need to ask yourselves why not? Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Oct 11, 2017

    Overall this is a really enjoyable read that builds upon the catastrophic events of issue five in a very natural way; nothing seems forced or out of the natural flow of the story, and while I'm still not completely on board with with art it has improved. A better comic than the previous issue, and a perfect distraction when I needed one the most – and isn't that what comics should do? Help us forget the real world for twenty or thirty minutes?

    Overall this issue was OK. I wasn’t moved by any of the actual dialog, and I found the art to bit hit-or-miss. On the plus side, there seemed to be observable instances of moving the overall plot forward (unlike the previous issue), and it featured the characters who should be the focus of the book. I hope that when the series resumes, they choose to rededicate themselves to telling a coherent story and make room for the essential characters. There are a lot of people out there that want this series to succeed. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, we will see future issues of Harbinger Renegade ramp up the action, rather than become an unnecessary lead-in. Read Full Review
