Teenager Peter Stanchek is on a dangerous path, but wields an even more dangerous power. Skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Pete is quickly realizing that he’s a psionically-powered “harbinger” with the potential to control minds, manipulate matter, and forever alter the course of human history. But behind the scenes and half a world away, Pete’s plight has not gone unnoticed by respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger, Toyo Harada. Will Harada offer Pete the chance at the things for which he’s longed — family, inner peace, control? Or will this unlikely hero find himself inducted into a secret network of conspiracy and subversion?

  1. Harbinger is back, baby!!!

  2. I hope that this is as good as X-O Manowar was.

  3. Don’t know anything about this but I’m in for the 1st issue at least.

  4. Hee, one of the thought balloons is ‘everything’s coming up Millhouse’ 🙂

  5. I’m a Dysart fan. I’ll give it a go. Here’s a cool little “writing” interview with him done during free comic book day.


  6. This was a really strong first issue. Dysart packed this one with alot of good story.

  7. This was a wordy story, but sooooooooo fantastic!

  8. Great first issue. This and X-O both look really, REALLY strong right now. Very excited about the return of Valiant!

  9. That was great! I’m enjoying this more than X-O at the moment.

  10. The art in this book is very poor. The story is just OK. I don’t think I will be back for issue two.

    • Yeah. Dysart is a really good writer but the art really kept me from fully appreciating the story. I was kinda hoping the art would be more like the cover.

  11. I was never that into Valiant back in the day, more of an Image, DC & Marvel person. Then got out of comics & just recently got back in. I picked this up because I wanted to start off on a “new” series at #1 and it looked interesting. Glad I picked it up, the story looks like it has somewhere to go and the art is good. Can’t wait for issue #2.

  12. This was a little underwhelming. The art was a bit weak and the story/writing/pacing was all over the place. Very strange. The concept was and is solid though, just not the best execution, hopefully this gets better as time goes on. Not a serious criticism but I’m from the ‘burgh and I have never seen anything like what was depicted *at all* anywhere here. It seems like someone that only knows cities like NYC or LA drew this. There might be two people abreast on the sidewalks at most at even the heaviest time and scaffolding, this level of diversity, and empty in-ground pools like an 80’s skate vid just don’t happen. I had a good laugh at this and so did everyone I’ve talked to locally that read it.
