Gen13: Lost in Paradise |
by Brandon Choi, J. Scott
Campbell, Jim Lee
It's a wet dream for Gen13 readers, who of course are attracted to the scanty attire of these impossibly long-limbed teens. And how better to start the adventure than a boat accident in which Caitlin, the big-bosomed group leader, soaks her t-shirt and loses her shorts? It's almost -- almost -- an unnecessary bonus when Rainmaker changes her costume in-panel, or when Freefall tears her jeans, or when the amazon leader wears her ceremonial/see-through gown, or when Grunge is used as breeding stock by a bevy of warrior women....
For all that Gen13 is more about cheesecake than champions, the writers generally tend to entertain, and Lost in Paradise is no exception. It's a pleasant romp in a tropical setting, and the storyline -- though certainly not breaking new ground -- is fun to read. And sometimes, that's all you really need to look for in a comic book, after all.
