“The Future of Valiant” Deploys Generation Zero #1 with Fred Van Lente & Francis Portela

Ready… Set… Riot! This August, “The Future of Valiant” continues with a daring new ongoing series for Valiant’s volatile team of teenaged walking warheads!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Generation Zero #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the next must-read monthly series from “The Future of Valiant” initiative! On August 24th, brace for impact when writer Fred Van Lente and blockbuster artist Francis Portela launch four highly specialized superhuman soldiers – Animalia, Cloud, Cronus, and The Telic – into their most dangerous mission yet: high school!

If you have a problem… If your parents won’t help… And if your cause is worthy… Log onto network #ZERO… because Generation Zero is listening.

Years ago, the children of the experimental strike team known as Generation Zero were taken from their families by Project Rising Spirit, a private weapons contractor, and raised to be psychic soldiers. After years of taking orders, they have fought for and won their freedom. Now, the world’s most wanted teenagers have pledged to protect each other tooth and claw, while using their extraordinary abilities to right wrongs for a generation without a future… To fight for kids, just like them.

One of those kids is Keisha Sherman, whose boyfriend just turned up dead after a suspicious car crash in Rook, Michigan – a newly booming tech town that sprang from rags to super-riches seemingly overnight. When Keisha makes a desperate plea into her webcam, the local high school suddenly finds itself with several unusual new students… But as word of Generation Zero’s presence spreads rapidly through the halls, this tempestuous band of teenage upstarts is about to discover that they’re far from the most extraordinary thing lurking behind Rook’s stainless-steel facade…

Featuring covers by Stephen Mooney, Tom Muller, Pere Perez, Andres Guinaldo, Kano, and Clayton Henry!
