'Harbinger Renegade Vol. 1: The Judgment of Solomon' by Rafer Roberts with art by Stephen Segovia is a pretty decent story about a dysfunctional team of superheroes who need to figure out how to work together again.
The story starts with a prelude that introduces the Renegades. The current most active member is Faith "Zephyr" Herbert, who has her own Valiant series. The rest have gone into retirement or gone a bit crazy.
There is a gene lurking unknown inside some people that makes them psiots. The powers can be activated, but the problem is that there is a group trying to activate psiots and having disastrous results. When Torque is attacked and a young psiot is threatened, Faith and team mate Kris Hathaway reach out to Peter Stanchek to try to get his help.
The story is great. This is kind of a messed up group of people, but they seem interesting enough that I want to know more. The art was really great. I'm less familiar with the Valiant line than other comics publishers, but this book had me hooked pretty early on and I really enjoyed it.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Valiant Entertainment, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
