The power's back online and the fighting is over... but who are the real victors of HARBINGER WARS 2, and what was truly lost in the carnage? For those who survived the terrible onslaught - and who must now witness the devastating aftereffects of their actions - will there ever be peace again?

As the seismic summer event of 2018 comes to a close, Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, ETERNITY) sorts through the rubble of the most brutal confrontation ever felt in the Valiant Universe - and discover what lies beyond the bloodshed!

    Overall, this was a great conclusion to the war. The worst case scenario for the Harbinger Wars was everyone dying at the hands of their enemies. This? This was the best case scenario to what you could probably call the start to psiots fighting back for their place in this world. Harbinger Wars 2: Aftermath #1 tied up all the loose ends for Amanda moving forward, while at the same time setting her up for her next mission as her new solo series approaches. Read Full Review

    As is the norm with an initial run comic, there are tons of stories beginning to shift us in different directions here. That's a good thing! What lies at the heart of this series is going to be how Livewire makes amends and is welcomed back as the hero she is. Matt Kindt has a firm grasp of this universe, and I think that he has made an interesting plot choice. While the events leading up to HW2 included bad on both sides, it will be interesting to see how this dilemma is solved. Stay tuned! Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 25, 2018

    Harbinger Wars 2: Aftermath #1 is a pause in the action, allowing the characters to take a breath and setting up the smaller more intimate stories for the future. It looks good with this limitation and promises to be better as it the series expands. Read Full Review

    To be clear this isn't a bad comic, and it is worth reading " if you have read the event. If not? The parts of this comic that will prove relevant in future series will doubtless be recapped within those comics which makes this a comic for completists and collectors, and not necessarily one for everybody else.

    A serviceable story if you hadn't read the event, but completely unnecessary if you have. Read Full Review
