    Packed with action, humor, and more than a little pathos, Generation Zero #3 stands as the best issue of the series since its debut and a gleefully weird use of another title’s visuals and tone. Though not quite as punk rock looking as the previous installments, #3 still impresses and shows a whole other side to artist Derek Charm, one that isn’t afraid to render burger joints and psiotic blasts with equal attention and brightness. But while Charm delivers an unexpected new set of visuals to the title, Fred Van Lente continues his streak of insane science fiction tempered with genuine emotion and compelling lead characters with understandable motivations all their own. Thanks to vintage visuals and a big heart to go along with them, Generation Zero #3 continues to get better and better. Read Full Review

    Generation Zero is a cool series. If somebody pitched me a series that was like the A Team, 21 Jump Street and Stranger Things rolled into one I would tell them they are going to need one helluva writer to make it work. It appears Generation Zero found just such a writer and an equally talented artist to boot. This has definitely been added to my pull list. Read Full Review

    Generation Zero #3 leads off in an interesting way that is designed to pull us in for the next instalment – and it pits Keisha against her own Father. it was obvious from the previous issue that he's definitely up to no good. It's clear that his corruption goes a lot deeper than we're aware. Although the story doesn't serve the overall plot in a big way – it teases some interesting ramifications down the line. As a foray into playing with different styles – Valiant have nailed this issue. It proves that Generation Zero is definitely one to keep your eye on. Read Full Review

    I'm not typically fond of this style of art, but here's an exception to that; without the shift, I don't think the comic would be as strong as it is. Generation Zero #3 is an overall enjoyable comic. It's not the best one I've read this week, but it's far from the worst " the story is furthered, plot details emerge" and the issue builds upon the previous issue in the series very well. I think that once this story is collected in trade, it's going to be a fantastic read. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Courtney Ryan Oct 31, 2016

    Generation Zero continues to be an amusing series for both fans and newcomers to Valiant Comics' psiot mythology thanks to an insightful protagonist in Keisha and the eerie mystery in which she has found herself embroiled. With some of the background doled out in issue #3, Lente is setting us up for a major revelation in the next two issues. Though the bigger treat will be discovering how this connects to the rest of Valiant's universe. A harbinger of things to come, perhaps. Read Full Review

    Not bad, but it feels like the book is more concerned with how the titular character affect others instead of the other way around. Read Full Review
