Harbinger: Deluxe Edition, Book 2 Reviews
Someone tell wtf just happened!!?This was bad. Pointless direction and none of it made ANY sense. How did this go off the rails soooo quickly. What even was the point of this?
Overall, the second half of the VH-E Harbinger is terrific, fulfilling al the promises of the original. I'm also very pleased with the way that Valiant seems to be telling their comics as complete stories, but then moving on to the next tale in the narrative.Perfect Day (15-19). One of the joys of Dysart's Harbinger is that when things go totally off the rails, you never know if it's real or if it's imaginary, if it's mind control or minds slowly falling apart. And that's the case here. The story starts off a little small, but by the last few issues it's one of those teriffic multifaceted stories that Dysart does so well. Overall, it's another great story, especially for the focus on the characters of Pete, Harada, and even little Monica Jim. [8/10]Resistance (20-21). I always found Ax to be one of the most irritating characters in the VH-1 universe, because he was sooo overused, and such a whining brat. It's great to see an alternate version of him created for the VH-E universe that's maintains some of the core ideas but is fun instead. Beyond that, this is another earth-shattering story. It's amazing how big of changes the VH-E universe is able to constantly support. And, if things are still a little confusing by the end of this two-issue arc, it's probably just because the story continues straight on into Death of a Renegade [8/10].Bleeding Monk (0). An OK backstory for the monk. It's interesting to see his history, but there's not much story here [6/10].Death of a Renegade (22-25). One of the joys of VH-E is that they're willing to bring their stories to big conclusions, and that's what happens here. Is it the best arc of Harbinger? No. But it's an epic story with real repercussions that nicely concludes most of the character stories. I've loved Dysart's Harbinger, but I love having an ending too [7+/10].Omegas (1-3). For the last six issues of Harbinger, Dysart taunted us with the story of what Harada did after the big conclusion of Harbinger. Now, we finally get the rest of that framing sequence. It was worth waiting for, but on the other hand, this is largely a bridge story, to get us from Harbinger to Imperium, so it's not a story that's at all conclusive [7/10].
Let's hope that my local comic-pusher won't read this: the first installment was quite horrible. Shoddily drawn and a poor story. Not yuge. Not great, you gonna love it...But it actually makes sense once I kept reading. Harbinger remains a solid read -not great but good.The local pusher said this isn't about real superheroes but about normal people with superpowers.The crummy bastard was right... again.
