Welcome once again to THE 10 SPOT – TMStash’s round-up of the very best in Indie comics each week. This week brings us HARBINGER RENEGADE #0 from Valiant, and GRASS KINGS #9 from BOOM! Let’s get started with…
HARBINGER RENEGADE #0 (Valiant) – This is HARBINGER RENEGADE minus the Renegades…but don’t worry, this book has EVERYTHING to do with what’s coming up next for our favorite psiots. Alexander Solomon has a plan, and H.A.R.D. Corps is doing their best to stop…whatever that plan may be. Can’t say more about the plot without spoiling, but let’s just say that the battles are intense (make that intense) and the groundwork is effectively put into place for the upcoming HARBINGER WARS 2 coming up in May 2018. Rafer Roberts does a stellar job with the script for this issue, with equally amazing art by Juan José Ryp and colors by the always outstanding Andrew Dalhouse. Valiant fans get ready for a HUGE event in May…and don’t miss this issue – it will get you ready for all the fun! 10/10
GRASS KINGS #9 (BOOM!) – “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose”…no, you won’t find that famous song quote in the issue, but it’s what I keep coming back to as I read this fantastic series. The Grass Kingdom has their freedom…of a sort. But, they aren’t free from suspicion, whether it’s of the outside world or each other. There are a lot of secrets yet to be uncovered in this place…but it can be awfully dangerous to go looking for them. Matt Kindt continues to spin a wonderful tale with this series, accompanied by the great art of Tyler Jenkins and colors by Hilary Jenkins. 10/10
