Earth is at war! The villainous Union has been steadily taking over more and more of the planet after initiating the Global Culture War. In an effort to stand its ground against the Union, the Polity turns to Dr. Weller and his team of five individuals who are "gen:Lock compatible," which allows them to transfer their minds to mech suits known as Holons! Spinning out of the first season of the hit Rooster Teeth animated series, gen:Lock follows Julian Chase and his team as they pick up the pieces of their lives after the death of Dr. Weller, leading them into a high-octane adventure in one of the Polity's last free countries, Japan!

    Gen:LOCK #1 is going to be an issue that lives up to fans' expectations of the series, though perhaps we're all still reeling from DC picking up the series (along with RWBY, for those that are curious). As a fan desperate to see more of the series, I couldn't be more excited by the comic book version coming out. I'll gladly take anything they're willing to give us, and I imagine I'm not the only one feeling that way. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Nov 8, 2019

    Just like with RWBY, the creative team taking on this series seems to have a good understanding of the characters and their stories. It gives a brief recap at the beginning with just enough information to set the stage without wasting time summing up an entire season of content. It establishes each character and their personalities along with launching a new arc and even though they aren't in their Holons until the tail end of the issue, its clear issue #2 is going to be action packed and if there's one thing I love, it's a good giant robot fight.
