HARBINGER WARS 2 Issue 2

HARBINGER WARS 2

For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic “harbingers” secretly live among us…with the potential to be activated at any moment…has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point…

Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.

In the East, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Sta...

Tart #1

Writer: Kevin Joseph
Artist: Ludovic Sallé
Publisher: Kechal Comics

Tart Acid wakes up in a new city with no idea why she’s there until she discovers someone in need, a little boy that disappeared from the park and is still missing. If the kid needs her help, it means the supernatural is involved, and things are bad.

There is a lot going on in this first issue of the comic, and there are a lot of questions left unanswered, but the story does not suffer from the lack of answers. Most of the story is conveyed through the art rather than prose and dialogue. The writing is sparse, and the dialogue is mostly brief exchanges rather than any sort of meaningful conversation, but there are brilliant moments where the writing and the art meld together to form powerful scenes that make the book well worth reading.
