For seven volumes, I think I paid five dollars, and it was quite worth it. If you like really traditional Shonen Jump manga, or moe ones, you may not like it; these feel a little old school, or quirky. But it's a good quirky, and there isn't a dud manga in the set. Well worth it for manga fans, especially with how rare actual manga is on Kindle.
GEN1 could very well have created a new Manga fan out of me!
1) Wolf- a boxing manga with a theme of revenge
2) Vs. Aliens - a science-fiction slice-of-life
3) Kamen - samurai fantasy in old Japan
4) Souls - a cerebral drama in old Japan (the best I can describe it)
Kamen and Souls were my favorite, but that's because of my particular taste. The art-styles for all of them aren't exactly "top notch" like Kishimoto or Obata, but it's a lot better than most indie manga out there.
I think the comic may have some issues on Kindle, because previously the pages would skip or copy the previous page. I don't know if it's a Kindle problem or the comic, but I want that to be known. It went away once I got to Kamen, but I just don't know.
All in all, for just $2 on Kindle, you're hardly breaking the bank if you're not satisfied with Gen #1. For just pocket change, you can grab a digital copy for a good, quick read and at the same time, support the indie scene. Gen #1 has its charm, but if you're expecting blockbuster stories similar to Naruto, Bleach, w/e, you won't find it here.

there are several stories in this book, and I think all of them good, and smartly drawn. but they all have the same sin- they all stop at the climax of the story! Read morePublished on July 25, 2014 by ImaPC
