The life of a teenager can be a strange enough experience, but when super-powers are added to the mix things get a whole lot more confusing in a hurry! Meet Caitlin, Sarah, Roxy, Bobby, and Eddie--outcast teenagers from different parts of the country who quickly learn they all have something in common: abilities far beyond those of their classmates! But what's the secret to these wonderful and scary powers, and what role do the nefarious Tabula Rasa and International Operations play?

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Oct 12, 2006

    Well, Wildstorm is now 0-2 with their efforts to get me to pick up their new Wildstorm titles. Wetworks failed to hook me and now Gen 13 has failed to earn a spot on the Revolution's pull list. I usually give new titles 6 issues to hook me. However, with Wildstorm, since they are flooding the market with so many new titles and I already have a full pull list and limited funds I have decided to give these Wildstorm titles just one issue to hook me. Am I being too harsh on Gen 13 #1? Should I give it another chance? Does anyone think that Gen 13 deserves another issue or two to try and earn a spot on my pull list? Read Full Review

    I may occasionally flip through an upcoming issue of this title to see if it looks good enough to pick up, but I am not convinced that will happen very often. Its too bad, because I think this could be a very good ongoing comic. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 12, 2006

    You'd be hard pressed to find a bigger fan of Gail Simone's work, and despite my reaction to this comic book, I remain a big fan. This comic just doesn't read like a Simone script, and given the simplicity of the core concept, I don't see why Wildstorm wanted to start over from scratch. The benefit of telling stories featuring teen characters is that the reader gets to see them grow up, and now any character development that might have transpired before seems to be lost.
