The HARBINGER WARS heat up Las Vegas! After decades of secret conflict, Toyo Harada has managed, in one fell swoop, to cripple Project Rising Spirit through the masterful manipulation of key players in the Valiant Universe. Now he wants the psiot children Bloodshot rescued from the bowels of a nightmarish PRS facility. Too bad. This rogue band of super-powered escapees have begun to call themselves GENERATION ZERO and they've declared a war of their own. First strike: Vegas, baby! And while PRS fashions a radical plan for getting the kids back, Peter Stanchek and the Renegades are following visions right into the heart of the Harbinger Wars.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman May 1, 2013

    Most big events don't have the appeal that they used to. The market feels oversaturated with them and it's far too often they seem like a cash grab instead of a legitimately fascinating concept. This isn't the case at all with HARBINGER WARS and it's a big event done right. It's hugely entertaining, changing characters and their motivations, and most important of all, will clearly have a big impact on the Valiant universe. Read Full Review

    Clayton Henry kills it in this issue (literally). Bloodshot is a character known for taking a beating, but holy crap does it get insane in Harbinger Wars #2. It's almost sickening, in a good way. I don't believe we are meant to enjoy the sight of Bloodshot's face peeling off as he vomits blood and nanites at his enemies. But hey, feeling grossed out has never felt so good and looked so awesome. If Harbinger Wars can keep this momentum up, it'll be the superhero event of the year, no doubt. Read Full Review

    Harbinger Wars is an absolute blast that brings the best of both Harbinger and Bloodshot to the table. What's not to like? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere May 7, 2013

    With some bombastic, yet subtle character work and some satisfying action scenes, both Dysart and Swierczynski gives us a pretty terrific second chapter of this first event comic from Valiant. With both Clayton Henry and Brian Reber on the art, it also does manage to look pretty and violent at the same time. Kudos to that. Read Full Review
