This book can do no wrong-⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love everything about it, script/art/colors, the characters and their characterization...

Rook was mentioned, it'll be interesting to see how that plays out next issue...

This issue was amazing. Not pulling any punches with the very relevant social commentary. Absolutely love this series, and I love these new characters. Artwork is gorgeously perfect once again!

I really wish Eric Heiserrer was writing the main Harbinger book. It's like night & day in terms of my personal investment in the stories & characters between the two books.

A great great issue. I love the tie in's with Harbinger Renegade #5 and that ripple that came through there.
The flow of this book, the characters, the art, and just all around it is QUALITY!

Hope we get more from this title, and more from Heiserrer.

Yeah. This one seems to fire all the way around. Strange how Livewire is put at the front - and then seems almost a background character in the story. All the characters are beautifully written with a great story surrounding their essence. Great stuff. I wasn't a fan of the art when in EW - but here it works GREAT.

In addition, I'm right.

This is a great book. I love the characters, the pacing and the story. Even the mention of Rook was a welcome tie-in to the rest of the universe. The "voice" of the writing is refreshing. Three cheers for Heiserrer!

I admit I thought this book was just going to be a throw-away use of a pre-existing IP, but I really love where they went with it. The only problem with this series is it's not an ongoing...

Are the cops to gun ho today asset striping and everything, yeah. Not pulling any punches would mean writing about POC cultural problems the same way the bravest artist from Pakistan, India and Mexico do it. The 2 blaqck jocks going after the Sikh psiot was a nice touch. Him saying he is an atheist and the turban is an ethnic pride thing would had been a more interesting solution but i enjoyed the issue overall.

It's an excellent book, the art is exquisite and the writing and characterization so far have been great.

Disappointed to hear it's not an on-going series, I think so far this team has been quite interesting to read about disconnected from the greater Valiant universe, but I suppose it was only a matter of time before they would be meet up with the Harbinger crew.
