Spilling out from the action of the abysmal "The Culling" event, I have to admit, I did not have much interest in these characters. I didn't want to give them a chance, but I did, and I wasn't won over.

Some okay art, some really boring storylines that plateau in the second issue. There really isn't much to grasp at here. In fact, whenever there is a glimmer of hope that something unusual or interesting might happen, the action hits a wall and ends up being typical and cliche.

Nothing new or chal

Recommends it for: fans of 90s Wildstorm comics
I just finished reading The Culling: Rise of the Ravagers not long ago and found a copy of this book on Amazon for really cheap right after completing that other book. I wanted to dive right into this series while the Culling story was still fresh on my mind. One of the things I was most looking forward to about this series was the inclusion of Caitlin Fairchild. I was a fanatic about all things from Wildstorm comics back in the 1990's and the group she was a part of back then, Gen 13, was a per ...more

Urgh. This series has so much potential, yet fails at every turn to meet it. The characters spend far too much time whining to be interesting, and no one has any kind of character arc at all. Even Fairchild is stuck in the same place for seven issues.

The art generally saves the book from being a complete write-off, but the fact that no one artist can pencil 3 issues in a row, leading to masses of fill-ins and multiple artists per issue, drags it all down. Plus there are obvious mistakes, with ch

This is a follow-up from the Culling - a group of ravager wannabes under the tutelage of Caitlin Fairchild, is escaping. Can she get them to work together without self-destructing? The answer seems to be no, although not without a lot of hand-wringing and whining. The 'team' Caitlin leads is fairly unremarkable - only two are characters I was previously aware of (Beast Boy and Terra), and even they are pretty boring. There is a lot of action, fairly well-portrayed, but the rest of it gets really ...more

This stories comes after The Culling crossover event. These are the kids that aren't accounted for by any of the other super hero groups involved in that story. Caitlin Fairchild saved this team from Harvest, but she didn't plan very well as she spends he first page of every issue wondering what she is going to do or if these kids can even be saved. I was sad to see a gratuitous display of nudity as a section is added where the kids just blow off some steam by swimming and are suddenly attacked. ...more

This is very much in the style of the Teen Titans or Legion of Superheroes. A group of minor DC and ex-Wildstorm characters, its all pretty standard fare. Fairchild and Lightning make it interesting as strong female leads but, alas, are undone by the usual heaving chests and combat bikini's.
It's competently scripted and crisply drawn but its all been done before and there's nothing to set it apart. All very Vanilla!

Between 2.5 and 3 stars. There's really not much going on for this offering. The art is good, the story, characters, and plot are all just kind of "meh". This has none of the charm and excitement that "The Culling" had. If it's not already canceled, I won't be continuing with the series.

This had potential to be okay, but they're all so damn whiny. Maybe Vol 2 with a new writer will be better. Mackie did not do good work here at all.

A bunch of escapee superheroes from a gladiatorial arena find out there's a LOT more of them and try to form a coherent team. Pretty art, popcorn story.
