GEN 13 #1

Written by Gail Simone; Art and cover by Talent Caldwell and Matt "Batt" Banning; Variant covers by J. Scott Campbell

A new generation of adventure begins as superstar writer Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Villains United) and artists Talent Caldwell and Matt "Batt" Banning (Wildcats: Nemesis) join forces to reimagine the classic WildStorm teen team!

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?
