Super-powered teenager Peter Stanchek is on a dangerous path. Skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Peter is quickly realizing that he's a psionically-charged "harbinger" with the potential to reshape the course of human history. But Peter's plight has not gone unnoticed. Respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger, Toyo Harada, is about to offer Peter the chance at the things for which the boy has always longed - family, inner peace, self-control - and induct him into the sprawling, secret network of conspiracy and subversion known as the Harbinger Foundation. Now, Peter begins his long road towards a destiny that will shake the very foundations of the Valiant Universe. His first lesson? All power comes with a price! Collecting the first five issues of the critically acclaimed series by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier), acclaimed artists Khari Evans (Carbon Grey) and Lewis Larosa (PunisherMAX), this is the perfect place to catch up with the series that Comic Book Resources calls "superheroes at its best."

If someone came up to you and went "I might be able to make you a superhero, but it may kill you" would you take it? If you got superpowers by accident, and someone came up to you and asked you to help him save the world, would you trust him?
Could you protect the people you loved? This comic grapples with some of those questions. Full disclosure- this story is dark. It has violence, rape, and thorny ethical questions. But it has fantastic characters- people that feel like they have a deep inner life. I absolutely love the character of Faith in particular. The plot itself is complicated with many different groups having many different agendas. Open it up, see if it's for you! -- Cassandra J., St. Anthony Library
