Adam Warren goes full-time as the new regular writer — and illustrates his first issue too! Brace yourself for "Behind The Power," a suspiciously familiar TV show that recounts the colorful history of Gen13 — from the early glory days, to their ultimately tragic fates!

SPOILERS



After tackling GEN13 special projects such as GRUNGE: THE MOVIE and MAGICAL DRAMA QUEEN ROXY, fan-favorite Adam Warren now "goes full-time" as the new regular writer of GEN13 the series, starting with issue #60. Heck, he's even illustrating the first issue of his run, too! (Subsequent issues are by the regular art team of Ed Benes and Vince Russell).

GEN13 #60 is a self-contained issue that serves as the perfect starting point for new and returning readers. Brace yourself for the glory and the tragedy of "Behind the Power," a suspiciously familiar TV show which unflinchingly recounts the scandal-plagued histories of super-heroes. This week, the show depicts the colorful history of Gen13, from the team's early years of obscurity, to their golden days of fame and success, to their sordid decline into utter failure and debauchery, to their ultimately tragic and pitiful fates! Waitaminute — this can't mean the end of Gen13, can it? What's Adam Warren going to write about for the remainder of his run? This is just the beginning of the action-packed hijinks yet to come!

Known for his outrageous humor, sexy storylines and off-the-wall action, promises a wild, unpredictable GEN13 — with a steady barrage of kitschy pop culture, tawdry innuendo, and the other figurative food groups of a balanced GEN13 diet. What more could you ask for?

Power Played Well 0

Adam Warren is just a one-man army in comics as author- artist to this satire send-up from VH1's bio show 'Behind the Music' from the mid-1990's and early 2000's. Showcasing super-heroes as celebrities isn't new, but constantly reading this book is like watching a 'Twisted Sister' performance. Plenty of surprises and in-jokes, and the ridiculous beat-down of Grunge afterwards is enough to get you to read and laugh twice! ...
