We are huge fans of Fred Van Lente and Francis Portela not to mention Valiant, so this new series has us super excited and now with our first lettered look our excitement can’t be contained!
In Generation Zero #1, Fred Van Lente and Francis Portela launch four highly specialized superhuman soldiers – Animalia, Cloud, Cronus, and The Telic into their most dangerous mission yet: high school!
These four soldiers were part of an experimental strike team known as Generation Zero. They were taken from their families by Project Rising Spirit and raised to be psychic soldiers. After years of taking orders, they finally fought and won their freedom.
However, they must now fight tooth and claw to protect each other and maintain their freedom. But they will also use their extraordinary abilities to right wrongs for a generation without a future.
One member of the futureless generation is Keisha Sherman. Keisha just lost her boyfriend in a suspicious car crash in Rook, Michigan, a newly booming tech town that sprang from rag to super-riches overnight. It’s a modern day boom town. While Keisha makes a desperate plea into her webcam, the local high school suddenly finds itself with several unusual new students, Generation Zero. As the group tries to make its way through high school, they will find out they aren’t the most extraordinary thing lurking behind Rook’s stainless-steel facade.
Generation Zero #1 will feature covers from Stephen Mooney (JUN161874), Tom Muller (JUN161875), Pere Perez (JUN161876), Andres Guinaldo (JUN161878), Kano (JUN161879), and Clayton Henry (JUN161880). There will also be a blank cover (JUN161877) available. The final order cutoff is August 1st. Generation Zero #1 hits comic book shelves on August 24th.
