    Normally when i series comes to a close like this it feels like the ending was rushed. However this issue wraps everything up with a satisfying conclusion. And it expertly sets up Generation Zero for the future so that we can come back and visit them anytime. Generation Zero has been a fan favorite since there introduction in Harbinger Wars through Armour Hunters and I hope we get to see more from them real soon. And anytime we get a chance to see Fred Van Lente play in the Valiant universe you just know you are going to have a great time. Read Full Review

    While this won't be an ideal place to start reading the series (although you can do it but will miss a lot of the nuances and references in #9), it's a great way for it to end. Although there are one or two scenes that don't make immediate sense, have faith in Van Lente because by issues end you won't question them. In terms of the story, this is a solid issue – and at the risk of being a little spoilery, the comic comes full circle with the conclusion giving readers a satisfying ending that leaves the next chapter in the lives of these characters wide open.

    Although rushed and largely condensed I'm mostly happy with how Van Lente is able to wrap up most of the dangling plot threads laid out to this point. If you can ignore the jumps in logic and randomness it does a fine enough job closing up the story. Read Full Review

    Overall this issue is a pretty decent conclusion for the series, given it may have ended prematurely. The series definitely had some interesting elements, and one can only wonder what else Van Lente may have intended for the story. Ultimately it sets up a new status quo for the Gen Zero characters in the lead up to Harbinger Wars 2. I intend to re-read the entire series, and I'm hopeful that it will reveal additional insights, as with Fred Van Lente's other brilliant Valiant work. Read Full Review
