Harbinger Vol. 1: Omega Rising
Joshua Dysart is one of the most underrated writers in comics today. This reboot, as part of the new Valiant Comics, is very good. Peter Stenchek has the power to make others do what he wants by his force of mind can be scary. Dysart shows what can go wrong in the first story. Many of the characters from the original series are re-introduced here but he is not just copying the original story. He makes this a similar but new story. The only fault I had with the first arc was the art in the final chapter. The artist keeps a consistent style throughout the series until we get to the final battle. Then he chooses to use a slightly more cartoony style that distracts the reader. Overall it is a great story that I will definitely be following.
