Nice cover, decent story. Turok was cool in this, a nice lead-in to his own title.

I recently got someone into VALIANT and when it came to the last 6 issues of H.A.R.D. Corps, they said "maybe I can just read it and not look at the artwork"

I'm not even sure it's worth the read...the last 6 were pure filth...

I had to FORCE myself through them. It was like wading through the NYC sewers and no mask. Terrible.

Great fight with Turok against the Bionisaurs!

Issue #10 has low end art work again, but compared to the last issue this issue had an excellent story.

I’ve included below some of my random notes from re-reading this issue:

Mission: Determine Bionisaurs location and find who’s supplying the Bionisaurs with technology to make the Bionisaur’s Hatchlings intelligent with brain implant technology.

The Alien that’s helping the Bionisaurs is from an alien world that wants the annihilation of the Human Race, but I don’t think the Alien is a Genetically Altered Humanoid Spider Alien like some of the H.A.R.D. Corps members think, but is actually a different Genetically Altered Humanoid alien from some other race. Spider Alien’s don’t want to annihilate the Human Race, but want to use Humans for food. This alien stated his race wanted to annihilate humans.

What alien race is this alien we see in this issue from?
Did this alien escape the destruction of this facility at the end of this issue?

This alien mentioned in this issue that there were many other facilities that he was helping the Bionisaurs. How many other facilities are there? How many more Bionisaurs did the Alien help with brain implants?

The Alien & Bionisaur’s Mountain Facility has a Generator that powers the facility, but the generator also interferes with the ability of the H.A.R.D. Corps to use their powers. Wonder if we’ll see in future episodes where this will come into play, maybe Harada will discover that he can use a generator like the one in this issue, and use it as a weapon against the H.A.R.D. Corps.

Overall this was a great story line using Turok as a character to fight a battle with the H.A.R.D. Corps. 4/5

Liked this one as much as the Bloodshot appearance in #5. Hope to see more Valiant characters in future issues.
