Reviewing Valiant’s Harbinger: Omegas #1

GameStop, Inc.

HAR_OMEGAS_001_COVER_LAROSAHarbinger: Omegas #1 turns to look at Harada’s response to being exposed and to Peter’s response to losing his driving purpose. As Harada noted in Harbinger #25, there is no going back now, so he does not try. He is, as always, a powerful figure, and his steps to assert control are entirely in character.

Dysart continues to tell an intertwined story, moving the focus between Harada, Peter, and the now-separated Renegades. Each of them faces a new dilemma now that Harada’s secrets have been revealed, and Dysart keeps the suspense building as he switches from one view to the next and one difficulty to another. There is not a page wasted here.

Sandoval and Tarragona keep the standard of art high. Harada’s new physical transformations as he presents himself to the world show a man very conscious of image, and the art reflects this. There are a number of new followers to show, and they are kept nicely distinct, though the background “extras” tend to be homogenous. Peter’s choices are starkly portrayed. Cruz keeps the colors intense, and Sandoval, Tarragona, and Cruz combine to show the impressive array of new powers Harada’s still-loyal followers have

The only difficulty comes in fitting Omegas in with the Armor Hunters crossover. This is set at the same time period—Zephyr and Torque are briefly seen talking of it—yet Harada himself never mentions it. Hopefully, this would-be world ruler will soon turn his attention to the fact that a group of aliens is currently working to make the question of “Who rules Earth?” quite academic.

The building blocks for several upcoming events are present here. Omegas represents a new chapter in the Harbinger saga and as such should not be missed. The issue is available today from Valiant.
