★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)

QUICK REVIEW: Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, Robbi Rodriguez, and Rico Renzi joined forces to reintroduce Valiant's most powerful psiot to the masses with an electrifying new series that is completely accessible to new readers. In fact, readers will accompany the telepath Peter Stancheck as he tries to regain his memory and discover his powers in a clever way to introduce the superhero starting from scratch in a way. 

Stancheck emerges in a world that is segregated, where psiots are perceived as threats, relegated to a district in Chicago. Yet, he can't help indulge in his newfound powers. Rodriguez's visuals throughout capture a viscerally kinetic experience as Stancheck runs and flys through the city with an awe-struck look on his face. His scratchy pencil work along with Renzi's vibrant neon colors conjure up an almost psychedelic whirlwind through issue one. It's stylish and captivating as this bleak but vast new world is a unique blend of light and shadow moving at super speed. 

'Harbinger' #1 is another top-notch new series from Valiant that reinvents Peter Stancheck for both new readers and longtime fans. This all-star creative team elevates the powerful psiot into a new stratosphere with an involving script and stunning visuals. Jumping onboard this new era of Harbinger is highly recommended.
