GENERATION ZERO #1-6 (Fred Van Lente / Francis Portela)

Après les évènements de la saga Harbinger Wars, les jeunes soldats psychiques de la Generation Zero ont fui le Projet Rising Spirits. Aujourd’hui considérés comme les adolescents les plus recherchés d’Amérique, ils ont juré de se protéger bec et ongle et d’utiliser leurs capacités pour aider une génération sans avenir… Des jeunes comme eux.

C’est le point de départ de Generation Zero, la nouvelle série régulière imaginée par l’un des scénaristes les plus prolifiques de Valiant : Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong, Ivar, The Timewalker). Il retrouve pour l’occasion le dessinateur Francis Portela (Faith).

Le premier numéro sort en août sous une couverture de Stephen Mooney.

Bon sang quelle énergie chez cet éditeur, il ne reste pas les deux pieds dans le même sabot et propose de fort belles choses intéressantes.

Reste qu’il faut avoir le temps (et le porte-monnaie) pour suivre la cadence ; cela dit je ne vais pas me plaindre d’avoir de la lecture pour les deux prochaines années rien qu’avec ce qu’il a produit jusqu’à maintenant. :slight_smile:

Because you demanded it! Exploding out of the pages of HARBINGER WARS comes AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES starring GENERATION ZERO from New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (IVAR, TIMEWALKER) and blockbuster artist Francis Portela (FAITH)!

If you have a problem… If your parents won’t help… And if your cause is worthy… Log onto network #ZERO…because Generation Zero is listening.

Years ago, the children of the experimental strike team known as Generation Zero were taken from their families by Project Rising Spirit, a private weapons contractor, and raised to be psychic soldiers. After years of taking orders, they have fought for and won their freedom. Now, the world’s most wanted teenagers have pledged to protect each other tooth and claw, while using their extraordinary abilities to right wrongs for a generation without a future… To fight for kids, just like them.

One of those kids is Keisha Sherman, whose boyfriend just turned up dead after a suspicious car crash in Rook, Michigan – a newly booming tech town that sprang from rags to super-riches seemingly overnight. When Keisha makes a desperate plea into her webcam, the local high school suddenly finds itself with several unusual new students… But as word of Generation Zero’s presence spreads rapidly through the halls, this volatile band of teenage upstarts is about to discover that they’re far from the most extraordinary thing lurking behind Rook’s stainless-steel facade…

Written by: Fred Van Lente.

Art by: Francis Portela.

Covers by: Stephen Mooney, Tom Muller, Pere Perez, Andres Guilando.

Description: Four of Project Rising Spirit’s most volatile test subjects – Animalia, Cloud, Cronus, and The Telic – get ready for their first field op as free men! They’ve challenged dictators, destabilized nations, and survived the height of the Harbinger Wars. Now, this reformed squad of soldiers are stepping off of the minefield and into the malt shop to investigate a conspiracy too strange for any old adult!

In the secretive tech oasis of Rook, Michigan, who can a teenager trust? Not the police… Not the teachers… And definitely not the parents. So when high schooler Keisha Sherman’s boyfriend turns up dead in an accident gone awry, she makes a desperate plea – and Generation Zero have heeded her call! But, with precision-honed military training and a taste for subverting authority, can this squad of high-powered, teenage superhumans infiltrate Rook undetected? Or is their very presence about to draw another of the town’s billion-dollar secrets into the light of day?

They’ll discover their friends’ biggest secrets, their enemies’ darkest fears, and their town’s sinister connection to this imagination-fueled reality.
