It all comes down to this! H.A.R.D. Corps vs. Bloodshot vs. Toyo Harada vs. Peter and the Renegades! Who will be left standing amidst the wreckage once called Las Vegas? The bone-crushing conclusion to Valiant's first summer blockbuster is here - and no hero in the Valiant Universe can escape its aftershocks.

    Overall it was very well handled and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome because I actually was losing hope that they'd make it out of this alive. Dysart really pushing you to the edge of your seat wondering what would go wrong because not much has really gone right for them. Even with the conflict over, you wonder what is in store for them next when this looks to be far from over. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Jul 16, 2013

    Valiant does it again! Harbinger Wars ends on a high note although still tragic and the repercussions will be felt across the Valiant Universe like no other. Harbinger Wars has real consequences and as a reader you can feel the satisfaction of solid storytelling. Valiant deserves the praise it's received because it chooses great storytelling over empty promises. Readers are the real winners with Harbinger Wars and Valiant. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper and Brandon Burpee Jul 18, 2013

    Actually, I'd say this is the most well-crafted book Valiant has by a mile in terms of character, but that's me. I LOVE the relationship between Archer & Armstrong and how it has grown. I also just love that we absolutely know who these guys are at this point. They are who they are, and I dig that (even if apparently there are like"10 more Obies). Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jul 18, 2013

    There is a genuine change to the status quo in the Valiant Universe at story's end, something that's often promised by publishers prior to these kinds of stories but often not really delivered on. With this issue, Valiant proves that the dreaded crossover event story can be good, and satisfying. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Vandervliet Jul 19, 2013

    In the end, it is clear that for the most part, there are few happy endings, especially for those on the front lines. Where do the Renegades, Generation Zero and Bloodshot go from here? How will Toyo Harada and Project Rising Spirit regroup? The story may be over, but as the Bleeding Monk points out "no war truly ever ends." Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Jul 17, 2013

    The first big crossover from the company is now out of the way, and for the most part proves to be a pretty strong success. Readers should take their time and enjoy this summer spectacle. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 17, 2013

    It's over and while I think that's a good thing, part of me will actually miss this series. I hope that their paths will cross again, but perhaps for happier reasons or at the very least not pit the Renegades against Bloodshot. I will say that I'm disappointed that Harada didn't kill those damn twins I hate, but hey" maybe that's coming soon? If you've been following the series there is no reason to stop now.

    The ending was a little breezy there and Suayan's art definitely broke the flow but overall, a good ending to a great summer comic event. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jul 23, 2013

    As much as the action and the use of the setting in order to make it seem exciting is well done, the conclusion and the general build up leading to it weakens the general effect of the story as a lot of elements that made the story great are left unused in favour of others. Strong art, good action, yet a weak plot. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Jul 19, 2013

    This issue, for those readers familiar with the term, is like edging. There's a great build up with no satisfying end. While the action is exciting, fast paced and drawn wonderfully the story suffers from little conclusion and change and a requirement that the reader pick up the next issues of Harbinger and Bloodshot. At the issue's end, the Bloody Monk tells Harada "No war truly ends." That's certainly the case here, but in comic book mini-series, it's nice to have one. Read Full Review
