    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 one of the kids' brother who was (killed?) that's made him jaded about the world but it never really gets fleshed out. Like a lot of Ales Kot's work, the story is ...

    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 skimming banks they won't get caught.Little do they know...they are being watched.A scientist has come up with a string of code that when the human eye reads it, it unlo...

    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 art -- that seemed a bit off and took me out of the narrative. These were minor things for the most part, but they added up to noticeable distractions. Still, I li...

    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 that he was feeling. Even Baldwin was interesting, though he is one that we know the least about. The one thing that ties the trio of Nick, Ellie, and Baldwin togethe...

    *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 points of effective storytelling.Unfortunately, it also wears its politics on its sleeve, so to speak, in a way that is so obvious as to detract from the story being t...

    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.

    Creepy the possibility of this. Wrong people to give super powers to. Very interesting. I greatly look forward to the next installment.

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