“Sunlight on Snow”

How do I put into words the empathy I have for Sunlight on Snow (Major Mech)? This is quite possibly the best existential comic issue that I have read in a long time. This issue cements the notion that Harada is good at three things. Making heroes, making us love the people that are forced to work with him, and making people hate him.

“Overture”The consummate professional Joshua Dysart comes at us now with a different view of the fate of the world’s psiots.

A daring new superhero saga from New York Times best-selling creator Joshua Dysart – writer of of the Harvey-Award nominated series HARBINGER – and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice)!

Toyo Harada is the most dangerous human being on the planet. Imbued with incredible powers of the mind, he has spent his life guiding humanity from the shadows. But today he is a wanted man. His powers are public knowledge, his allies have turned to enemies, and he is hunted by every government on the planet.

Instead of surrendering, Harada has one last unthinkable gambit to play: to achieve more, faster, and with less, he will build a coalition of the powerful, the unscrupulous and the insane. No longer content to demand a better future, he will recruit a violent legion from the darkest corners of the Earth to fight for it. The battle for utopia begins now.
