Exclusive Preview: BEN 10 #1

Now you can follow the adventures of Ben Tennyson and friends in the comics once again.

It's great and a little hard to believe that Ben 10 is still going on. Ben Tennyson is returning to comics at IDW Publishing. He's now 16 and will be teaming up with a new alien sidekick and an even better Omnitrix. The comic will be set in the current BEN 10: OMNIVERSE universe.

Check out our exclusive preview for the first issue, on sale next week, November 20.

BEN 10 #1

Jason Henderson (w) • Gordon Purcell (a & c) Eddie Nunez (vc)

Who knew vacation could be this exciting? Ben Tennyson and his teammates kick off a maelstrom of action when an ocean cruise brings Ben in the cross hairs of Ssserpent, who’s out to find a long-lost underwater society. But does Ben's new, slightly oddball love interest harbor dark secrets of her own? Aliens, superpowers, ships and swimsuits: the perfect ingredients for high-seas adventure.

I wonder if these CN comics will X-over at all?

Posted by iceslick

Yup, ever since the death of Dwayne McDuffie (R.I.P.) the series has gone way down. I wish McDuffie was still around because his writing in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien is what made Ben 10 popular and a great series to enjoy. Now since it's just Man of Action the series has gone to just as bad as their Marvel cartoons. :-(

Is that Gwen? What's up with her wearing glasses?

I stopped caring for it after Original. Alien Force killed it if you ask me. But can I just ask, with 4 shows and a comic, how much longer can they milk this?

What do you mean alien force killed it? Alien force was the best one, the first 2 seasons had a great story and a great overall feel to it.

@herokiller12344: I hated how one moment Gwen was an alien and another, she's a witch. They needed to make up their mind. -__-

Dislike, the Onniverse a LOT. Also, this art. Don't know if I'll pick it up even though I used to love Ben 10.

They were trying to retcon the alien thing during the same run they introduced it XD I think now she's both essentially but i haven't sat through omniverse because it's trash. I sat through the whole run up until that point lol The animation level dipped after the original series then become awful now. And they retconned the whole ben 10,000 storyline completely.

How long can they milk Ben 10? How long was DC been milking Batman? OR Marvel with Spider-Man? I dont see it like that at all, Also I loved the original series, but i watched one episode of Alien force and quit for like 3 years, I got back into it when Ultimate Alien was one, (even though i never watched UA), I decided to give Alien Force another try, It's not as good, but watchable, Then Ultimate alien was better, now Omniverse isnt bad but its the worst yet.

In my mind Gwen is still a witch, and Kevin a Bad guy. thats how i like it.

For me alien force is what made me like him, the first one was just action & cheesy lines, while alien force started out with a big story.

Alien Force was just too big a change for me at first, everything was dark, and the small amount of humor wasnt funny at all, and it took forever to explain why Kevin was back in normal form. And Kevin seemed to get over his hatred for Ben really easy.

The art is really turns me off in the show and the comic why couldn't they use the old animation or the Generator Rex art or animation :(

Hmm. Me thinks the comic is actually a pretty good idea!

Omniverse needs to be retconned.

I only made it through the first 3 episodes, couldn't make myself watch four.

I agree. Ben 10 used to be awesome but the quality has steadily dropped after the end of the first two series: Original and Alien Force. Also has anyone else noticed that IDW Publishing has been adapting more Cartoon Network properties? They recently came out with a new Samurai Jack comic and even a Powerpuff Girls comic this year. Hopefully they'll adapt Generator Rex next.

It's different though. It's almost as if CN couldn't move on from this show/universe if they tried. And for a Kids Network. that's bad.

It's their biggest money making property ever, why would they just stop?

Why does IDW distribute it when CN is owned by WB which owns DC.

Not the biggest fan of Ben's alien friend, I prefer Gwen or Kevin.

Posted by Sekele

What's with the hate for Omniverse here?

It's the best series in the franchise since the original!

Alien Force was bad, and Ultimate Alien was garbage, Omniverse is a much needed return to form

That said, the comic does not look as interesting as the other IDW CN comics, but I will give it a chance

Because they aren't as dumb as Disney

Disney took the Disney license away from Boom and gave it to Marvel.

What did Marvel do with it? NOTHING!

IDK, he was referenced in Smallville Season 11 comic. I wish DC would have done a New 52 Ben 10 without any ties to the show

Wait, were you being serious? Did you actually think Ben was a kid again? Ben is 17 years old in Omniverse. I thought you were just trying to be a funny omniverse hater, sorry

I hate the new design for the characters with Omniverse =(

Posted by sora_thekey

@allstarsuperman: I was actually being serious... I stopped following the Ben 10 franchise after the second season of Alien Force (which I loved by the way).

I guess it must be the art then because he looks very kid-ish on this comic. I was aware of Omniverse but I'm completely oblivious to the plot.

oh sorry then, you should keep watching the show. Omniverse is popcorn fun though, don't expect it to be Alien Force levels of plot and character development.

@allstarsuperman: I was more into cartoons at that age, and I hate certain aspects of the show, but the concept is a good one.

I believe your talking about this scan.
