    This excellent comic takes us inside the mind of a character that is a fundamental part of the Valiant universe, since he is one of the villains par excellence of this editorial, this comic will allow us to go to the roots of the character, to know his mind and his motivations, surely this will make us doubt if effectively Toyo Harada is a villain or if on the other hand he is a new type of social hero.

    Although it's still too early to call this series a masterpiece, if the quality remains consistent for the next five issues, then I won't have any hesitation in doing so. Is it the best place to start reading about Toyo Harada? Probably not, but this is a shining light on 2019 the comic book landscape, and firmly establishes the miniseries as a solid early contender for this reviewer's Best of 2019 list. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 3, 2019

    The Life and Death of Toyo Harada is a tense, action-packed thriller with elements of sci-fi and horror weaved in. It breaks down one of the most intriguing characters in the Valiant Universe in a way that humanizes him. It doesn't excuse all the horrible things he's done, but it does provide some valuable context. This is a series to watch. Read Full Review

    The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #1 is a hard issue to describe to those who aren't familiar with Toyo Harada comics. For fans of Imperium, this issue is nearly perfect. Everyone else should check out Harbinger and Imperium before trying this one because it isn't great for beginners at all. Read Full Review

    The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #1 is a solid start to this series. This issue takes an already fascinating character and adds another intriguing layer. There's a lot of potential in this story line. Harada has big plans in terms of shaping the world by directly impacting the technological advantages and disadvantages. However, his team is almost at its breaking point due to internal pressure and worldwide pressure. And I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review
