    Of all of the new Valiant titles this is the one I look forward to because of the well devised mystery, interesting characters and beautiful art. If you have heard of Valiant and want to know where to start Generation Zero is my recommendation. Read Full Review

    I'm eager to see what this comic will be offering us for the next few issues, but if there's something I've learned about Generation Zero, is that is will always surprise. I find it needless to tell you to go buy your copy of Generation Zero #5, but seriously, go buy it right now. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Dec 30, 2016

    It's an incredibly fast paced story. And it only pauses to give us the occasional emotional gut punch to make the plot a little more weighty. Unfortunately, since it's constantly moving – it doesn't give the reader time to really process what's going on or the ramifications of the events unfolding. But, it still manages to be entertaining. We're still dying to know who the Cornermen are – and we're beginning to see the seeds of that sown into this issue. They're clearly tied into Rook's secrets, and it seems like Kwame is important in a larger way than we first thought. Generation Zero #5 begins to pull back the curtain on this mysterious haven, and whilst this is definitely an enjoyable issue – we feel this is just the start of something a lot bigger.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 31, 2016

    Overall the issue had a rocky start with some rough art and dialogue but it really came around to be an enjoyable issue. With some pretty creepy characters and an overall mystery that is getting more and more interesting I'm really looking forward to seeing the next issue and the conclusion of this first arc.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Dec 30, 2016

    Generation Zero strikes its zenith in an action-packed issue that pits the Rook Police Department versus the team with Keisha squarely in the middle of it. The series is finding its groove and with it, a protagonist that is nearing her final form. Plenty of trouble is brewing for everyone involved which makes this Valiant title the one to watch as we enter the new year. It just keeps getting better. Read Full Review
