ADVANCE PREVIEW: 'Generation Zero' #2 by Fred Van Lente and Francis Portela
Four teenaged walking warheads are about to storm into their deadliest new mission: high school!
Valiant is proud to present your first look inside GENERATION ZERO #2 – the second hard-charging issue of the next must-read series from “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” initiative! From the mind of New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, Amazing Spider-Man) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (FAITH, Green Lantern), jump on board Valiant’s latest smash-hit series right here as 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?
