Advance Review of Generation Zero #1

Generation Zero 1 Stephen Mooney

By Fred Van Lente, Francis Portella & Andrew Dalhouse

No Spoilers

For twenty-five issues, assorted tie-ins, a couple zero issues and an epilogue mini-series, Harbinger was one of the best books on the stands. Writer Joshua Dysart revitalized a 90s concept into a captivating and increasingly relevant series, full of compelling character work and engaged social issues. He did not skimp on the action either, or the consequences which often linger from violence. After he brought the series to a close, the characters mostly drifted to the side, while he concentrated on their antagonist Toyo Harada’s new title Imperium. Gradually, though, publisher Valiant has been bringing the Harbinger cast back into circulation. The year started with former Renegade Faith gaining her own solo series. Later this year she will rejoin her former teammates for a new Renegades title (written by Rafael Roberts who has been doing fantastic work on the current Archer & Armstrong book). This week, the young heroes of Generation Zero step-up for their first ongoing series, the debut issue of which offers a promising beginning.

Heterocles

Hercules1

Protect the innocent, defend the world, save the day. Olympus’s favorite son is back like you’ve never seen him before! An ancient warrior in the modern day, Hercules battles everything from street-level crime to cosmic scale threats. Whether it’s protecting his block, his city or the entire world – no labor is too big or too small for the mighty Hercules! But a new evil has awoken – one that will push the demi-god to the limit and test his mighty resolve. The world’s first super hero is back in the fight, but will his new lease on life be short lived?” (Via Marvel.com)

In the Post-Secret Wars All-New Marvel NOW!, we’re getting a new Hercules series that is 100% he-man-women-lover. Not everyone loves that concept though. Is this yet another setback by the publisher vis-a-vis the Hip-Hop variants and forgetting about Blade?

This Week’s Finest: Ivar Timewalker #9

By Fred Van Lente, Pere Perez, Andrew Dalhouse, Dave Sharpe, Carolina Bonita Soler

Once again The Week’s Finest stumped me. I thought for sure an Image debut or a retro Superhero story would engage me and earn the crown as the best comic (in my humble opinion). Yet, only the increasingly awesome time-travel antics of Ivar, Timewalker surpassed all my previous expectations.
