    One thought on “Valiant Masters: H.A.R.D. Corps, Volume 1: Search and Destroy”

    1. One of the reasons I picked up this collection was to get the two post-Unity issues of Harbinger (10-11), which are otherwise out-of-print currently. They're OK issues that show the Renegades settling back into their lives. The intro of Hard Corps as antagonists who fight the heroes is a technique that would quickly get stale at Valiant (see also X-O Manowar intro of the Armorines and doubtless others), but it's done well enough here, with consequences for the Hard Corps that I looked forward to [...]

    2. H.A.R.D. Corps has an interesting premise; a team of men rescued from comas who have the ability to use super powers, but only one at a time, and they have an external provider who activates them. The collection here is a little disheveled - the characters first appeared in the Harbingers series, so the first two issues in the collection only include them as a backup/peripheral to the main story. Then it switches to their actual series, which stands a bit stronger, as the team has to integrate a [...]

    3. This is the third or fourth of these Valiant Masters that I've read and thought about the same thing: this series really could have been great. In this case, we've got a solid cast of characters with some solid if not excellent character work. We've got an interesting premise in their powers, as well as some moral ambiguity which should be explored more fully. It's a great set up, but I can't say it really reaches anything fantastic. But it's a good read, and I hope the New Valiant uses this con [...]

    4. There's an often under-appreciated art to blockbuster action sequences, and Micheline and Lapham are masters of that art. They managed to combine superpowers, sci-fi body mods, an A-Teamesque group of characters, into a thoroughly entertaining series. I'd gladly be reading this every month if they were still making it.

    5. Awesome series about a group designed to collect the harbringer for their company and study their powers as they have gears that allows them to have one superpower at a time and the selection of powers is only limited to the powers of the harbringers they have captured and bought in for study.
