Is this cover a homage to something?

An issue purely devoted to the underlying story of the Visitor, the Harbinger and Harada. It's well written and flows nicely. Nothing extraordinary but a solid 4/5.

I don't know if it's a homage to some other cover, but I agree with magnus' review. After fighting Vis and meeting Flamingo, Harb decides to confront Harada. After some cool use of powers by both of them, Sting decided to retreat. Since I read the Vis first, than Harbinger series, I was wondering why Harada didn't use these same powers in Harb #1-25. Of course, it's because Valiant changed the definition of an Omega Harbinger later. Go figure. :P The painting at the end was also a very nice touch.

Great story and spectacular art.

5/5 for me.
