Generation Zero Issue 1 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  I have no idea what is going on with Fred Van Lente or the editorial staff at Valiant that caused this issue to open brilliantly and then fail to be sensible. The art, coloring, and lettering are all amazing and give the book its quality. (Even though Monica Jim does not look tall enough at the kegger.)
However, the writing ranges from offensive to simply unrealistic. For example the idea of Donald Trump being a legend, or in this case "An Urban Legend," makes the wheelchair bound teen seem moronic in a "how is she breathing?" type way. Also this issue makes light of cutters, bullying and threats of school shooting. Finally the opening plot is just a thinly veiled mixture of The A-Team and The World's End.

  My Verdict: It is strongly not recommended for the above reasons and the fact that Fred Van Lente and the Valiant staff have done better in the past.
