  • The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #1
    Written by Joshua Dysart

    Lettering by Dave Sharpe
    Published by Valiant Comics
    Review by Justin Partridge
    ‘Rama Rating: 8 out of 10

    A Valiant icon gets a sweeping science fiction/biopic hybrid in the debut of The Life and Death of Toya Harada. Written by Valiant mainstay Joshua Dystart and given a stoic but cinematic look by Cafu and Mico Suayan, this opening issue pulls the curtain back on one of the O.G.s of the Valiant Universe. Focusing on Harada’s tragic origin in all its harrowing detail and how it has directly influenced his new megalomaniacal, arguably pragmatic, present, The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #1 starts this biography off on a grand note.

    If you’ve ever read a Valiant comic since 1989, chance are you’ve probably heard the name Toyo Harada, the all-powerful 'Omega Power' who has weaved a geopolitical web around the whole world and allied himself with other superpowered people in order to bring “balance” to the planet. He’s been a major antagonist for the Valiant Universe for as long as it’s been around, but this new series aims to tell the “real story” behind the man, and even for the casual reader I believe it succeeds.

    Taking the familiar structure of a celebrity biopic and exploding it across the cosmos, writer Joshua Dysart starts from the opening page with an impressive scope. He starts by detailing the creation of the very universe in portentously entertaining narration, coupled with a gorgeous sequential panel grid of the birth of the universe from Mico Suayan and colorist Andrew Dalhouse. From there we jump to 1936, where we get to see Toyo’s upbringing in Hiroshima, Japan… and the aftermath of the atomic bomb. These scenes deftly provide the emotional core for the series, as the team takes the idea of a superpowered child “freedom fighter” deadly serious, showing how Harada started to consolidate his power, both as the “Omega” and as a political figure.

    But The Life and Death of Toyo Harada isn’t just about the man’s past, it is also about his future. While the look into his past provides the steak, the sequences following Harada’s latest push toward peace are all sizzle thanks to Dysart, Cafu, and Andrew Dalhouse. As the narration clocks on, we are deposited into “some seventy years later,” where Toyo and his multi-tiered team of “psiots” are attempting to rig a sort of space hook across a ring of alien asteroids orbiting the Earth. It is a lot, but Dysart’s script really kicks up the action and humor here, detailing a thrilling chase through orbit and plenty of “holding the line” action down on the surface starring some gleefully weird characters like a group of Power Pack-esque children with specific mental abilities and a bloodthirsty and hilarious creature only known as LV-99.

    This whole section of the issue raises the stakes of the story nicely, and adds an urgency to the biopic material of the first half as we know vaguely where the story is headed. Starting with a dense, but narratively rich montage of the “seventy years or so” that readers may have missed, Cafu goes full John Cassaday, showcasing Toyo and his team fighting Chinese Special Forces ground troops and fighter jets in the most action-packed and bombastic way possible. Though Cafu’s pencils are less expressive than Suayan in the opening, they have a real power to them as this section is just all action, flight, and fight.

    Don’t let the portentous title fool, you because The Life and Death of Toyo Harada #1 really is a fun read. Blessed with the strong emotional core of a biopic as well as some burly action, this opening issue swings big and starts the series with nice, solid hit. Neaty accessible, but not at the expense of its scope, heart or action, The Life and Death of Toyo Harada might just end up being a volume worth your shelf.
