    Great artwork, but kind of a cliched story. There's a ton of stuff out there with this same basic plot: bunch of average kids are suddenly gifted with superpowers and then go nuts. It's basically the same story as the movie Chronicle, as well as the book Vicious (by V.E. Schwab) and th...

    You know that found footage movie that came out 5 years or so ago called, Chronicle? That's what this comic reminded me of. In Generation Gone, we have three teenaged kids who are hacking DARPA and other government agencies to practice and hone their skills so that when they start s...

    Very much like the movie Chronicle, except it tried to update it for the 2017 Occupy/Black Lives Matter generation. But it did not do a good job. The characters motivations were muddy at best, and it ended up being about a whiny entitled white fuckboy. ...

    I read this for an upcoming episode of the podcast. I like Kots's work, normally, and I did enjoy this first volume of the series. However, there were a few facets of the storytelling -- certain plot twists, particular character behavior, over-dramatized actions, as well as some of the...

    Teens that have anti-establishment issues that get super powers, not really original and not the best I have read in that category. I wanted to like this more, I really did, but the beginning is sluggish and overall I felt like Image has done this story multiple times. I will say the p...

    I read this as individual issues. Looked forward to this title every month. A lot of really vivid "Holy S@&T! Did they really do that!?" moments in this story. ...

    Geez, that was shitty. I understand "anti-heroes" being popular these days, the main dude in this volume is like, intensely unlikable. As are most of the other characters, simply because they seem unreasonably willing to put up with him. The main concept is fine: teens get superpowers ...

    "Perhaps I am too direct for you", says the scientist who's found the secret of superpowers, and he's not kidding. I agree with almost all the points Kot is making here - the failures of our governments, the theft of the future from the young, the whiny entitlement of the young man who...

    "You know why I want to destroy this place?...Because your generation doesn't see us. Because your generation only pays attention to the kind of power that leaves scars." Depictions of millennials in art are still in the early stages, and the prominent tone of these works is usually...

    *Knock Knock* is that you Chronicles? I kid. I actually enjoyed this one a bit. It's ALOT like Chronicles, which is okay with me, I loved Chronicles. So you have three hacker friends who decide to run a big scheme and gets lots of money. Most of them for admirable reasons. However,...

    Generation Gone has that odd story beat on issue 2 that frustrated me, this is another origin superhero book. I thought this was going to be something story driven but it looks like the usual run of the mill stuff DC and Marvel excel at. The story is interesting and hits its stride fro...

    Take the plot of Chronicle and add in some heavy-handed social commentary and you have Generation Gone. The book steals a LOT from Chronicle, same basic plot, same basic characters. There's some half-assed commentary about society that isn't really thought out along with a B-plot about...

    An intelligent and thrilling experiment in social commentary, superpowers, government conspiracies, and a tumultuous love triangle. The most impressive illustrations I?ve seen all year. Please let there be more to this story. ...

    "What happens when you're young, angry, and get superpowers you never asked for?" Another attempt to breathe new life into the superhero genre. Vaguely intriguing, but it all feels a bit half-baked and clunky to me. ...

    The characters in Generation Gone, Vol 1 created quite an impression on me, simply because they didn?t stay in the boxes I expected them to stay in. Ellie was weak in some areas, incredibly strong in others. Nick was a douche, but even then I could sympathize with him for the pain th...

    This is a Goodreads win review. This is a Science Fiction/Superhero adventure comic book for adults. It is set a little ahead at 2020 and it is about three young hackers and they have superhero powers. The book is very colorful and this is a genre I do not usually read but I enjoyed it...

    *Galley received from Image* There's a lot of potential here between the socially-relevant themes and the concept of average people unexpectedly being given super-powers. And in some regards, the story manages to achieve what it wants to. It certainly has its interesting moments and...
