Review:

The first storyline deserves to be uttered in the same breath as the masterpieces of the art form: Watchmen, Maus, Dark Knight Returns... --Sequential Art Research and Literacy Organization

We were getting phone calls, faxes and letters from all around the country telling us how Harbinger was the hottest thing since sliced bread. Collectible of the Decade. --Wizard Magazine

A realistic and thoroughly modern tale of teenage superheroes, complete with bad judgment and raging hormones. --Variety
