The deconstruction of superheroes has been accomplished before, but rarely has it been done with the vigor and affection of comics veteran Tobin in his nearly pitch-perfect superhero tale for grownups... fierce action, sexy romance, warm nostalgia, and wry observations on being a superhero in the age of YouTube. Publisher's Weekly starred review
"A journey home, into the past - and the heart - of a superhero, by turns inventive, shocking, warm, clever, and very, very human." Kurt Busiek, Harvey & Eisner Award-Winning Author of Marvels, The Avengers, and Astro City
About the Author
Paul Tobin lives in Portland, OR, despite not having a single tattoo. He has written the adventures of Spider-Man, Batman, the Hulk, Superman and hundreds of other comic book characters, bringing a sense of realism and character to a genre filled with over-the-top action. He and his wife, artist Colleen Coover, are the creators of two graphic novels, the acclaimed Banana Sunday as well as the recently released and oddly wonderful Gingerbread Girl.
Paul enjoys studying history, burlesque theater, thunderstorms, pretty girls on bicycles, good bagels, evil muffins, and occasionally claims that he would like to punch-fight a mastodon, though those claims have significantly tapered off after he stood next to a life size model at the Natural History Museum in Paris.
