    One thought on “Harbinger, Volume 5: Death of a Renegade”

    1. Don't do this to me Valiant! Where the hell are they going with this.When I first started this series it was like an adult version of classic X-men. Now it's like a superman comic. It makes no sense and goes nowehere.I hope this gets better in the next volume but i doubt it.

    2. You know the more Valiant titles I read the less I understand the love this company gets. Don't get me wrong, they're not horrible, but they sure do release a lot of just okay stuff. Anyway, another Harbinger title. This one actually being the highest rated. That made me excited. The DEATH of a Renegade. Sounds badass right? Got the big showdown, Peter and his gang going for the final take down, all the stakes in, the big fight is about to begin! AndGood: I did enjoy Kris and Peter's interaction [...]

    3. Overall, a solid conclusion to the first five volumes of Harbinger, that brings things to a good and natural close.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 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- [...]

    4. I would say it was a good end to the title (view spoiler)[but are we not kind of back to square one ??? No it is kind of worse, the bad guy takes over the world, and the hero is gone. (hide spoiler)] Damn, I LOVE THAT

    5. That's more like it. After the let-down of volume 4, the Renegades get back on track as they finally take the fight directly to the Harbinger Foundation and Toyo Harada.This volume is three two issue arcs that all feed together to bring the series to a conclusion. We open with Resistance, which introduces the character of AX, a hacktivist who becomes instrumental in the downfall of Harada. These two issues do a little more showing than telling, but it covers a lot of ground in just two issues, s [...]

    6. Well executed and consequence heavy conclusion.World: The art is still fine, it's middle of the road Valiant and that's all there is to say. The world building this time around is very solid and game changing. Ever since Harbinger 1 readers have been getting more and more of this world and now the game is going to change, the stakes are going to change and the consequences of actions in this arc is going to change. This is fresh because not a lot of superhero comic books do that (DC and Marvel) [...]

    7. This volume brings to a conclusion the story arc of Peter Stanchek v. Toyo Harada. In the process, the Renegades group is destroyed, and all of them go their own ways. This is beautifully plotted, with wheels within wheels, and frequent surprises that sometimes make it unclear which characters are to be trusted with the lives of their friends and group members.

    8. This was prety good, but a little long for a valiant trade. the death itself didn't fell like it was very important. Just kind of happened and that's it. The art was srong though, and created some emotion throughout it. And the story is definitely getting more interesting.

    9. best of the series - teamwork, tragedy and epic showdown. so-so ending but I'll forgive it for the first several issues.

    10. This is basically a superhero heist movie, as the Harbingers plan and execute an audacious plan to bring down Harada's empire. There are twists, turns, feints and double feints, and there are real casualties on both sides. The framing is a little odd, but the main story really does turn up the pressure on the characters, and also gives a fairly strong resolution to them, ending the Harbinger series in a manner that seems appropriate to the characters (and makes some of the Armor Hunter series ev [...]

    11. Harbinger exits with a bang, as newcomer and hacktivist "@x" blows the lid on HGC and the Harbinger Foundation, with the help of the Renegades. The Harbinger series proper ends with this volume, and an over-sized final issue collecting a handful of short stories. The landscape of the Valiant U is massively altered by the end of Dysart's story, in a fashion deeply reflective of the series' opening issues. Excellent characterization persists through the final chapters, as individual arcs are wrapp [...]

    12. If I call this book a "bummer" it's intended as a compliment, as seeing these characters' personal and group journeys come to a close made me miss them the moment I saw "The End." If Valiant's policy of "permanent consequences, no reboots" is true, then I will enjoy hanging on to this era of Harbinger and look forward to the stories that come next (as opposed to waiting for the deceased to come back to life or pop over from an alternate universe/timeline).

    13. The very enjoyable close to Harbinger. Done well, the fights in this book would be absolutely incredible on-screen. The death of one of the main characters nailed the story back down to reality, and the emotional end cap to the story works very well as the end of an era by considering what absolute power can do to an anti-hero trying to be a hero. Power changes people, and sometimes, it doesn't.

    14. Maybe Harbinger is growing on me as it matures.I am still not a Peter guy, but I do find myself enjoying heroes that are not him or Kris. Maybe it's getting a Heroes type of feel, with my infastructure. Maybe this is what Heroes could have grown into.

    15. The success of Peter and the Renegade's plans to thwart Harada lead to the death of a teammate and ultimately the death of the team itself.

    16. This book is a worthy successor to the original Harbinger series from the early 90's. I loved those early Valiant books and this new series is pretty good too.

    17. It was great but it was sad because it also the death of the Harbinger comic book. I hope that they bring it back.

    18. Esperava-se melhor. Há algo de dissonante ao longo de toda a trade. E, ainda assim, no fim fica um vaziozinho.
