Smallville: Harbinger #3 Review

Written by: Bryan Q. Miller
Art by: Daniel HDR
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: January 17, 2014


Zatanna and Constantine continue their search and rescue mission.  The Church of Blood go to Stonehenge, but are not just there for the sites.  Zatanna catches Constantine's eye, but all she gets to see is his tail.

Bryan Q Miller's Harbinger mini series has been my crash course on Constantine, Zatanna and the DC dark universe in general.  It's been a fun and educational ride so far and things only get better in issue #3.  Zatanna and Constantine play so well off of each other and Miller really takes advantage of it.  There are laugh-out-loud moments coupled with great action and story.  In the end you may be cursing, but it's only because you should have seen it coming.  

I must admit that I have really enjoy Miller's minis that don't include Superman.  Don't get me wrong, I love Superman and Miller writes him better than most, but I like when he gets to explore the rest of the DC universe and put his stamp on it.  I hope there are plenty more of these side trips in the near future.

The art of Daniel HDR continues the goodness.  This issue gives him a chance to draw grotesque beings and plenty of action and he takes it by the reigns and goes with it.  

Smallville: Harbinger #3 is a fun, action packed romp featuring two of DC's favorite dark characters.  Zatanna and Constantine go so well together and Bryan Q. Miller does them justice.  Combine that with excellent art by Daniel HDR and you have yourself a winner.  Highly recommended.
