Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Sixteen-year-old Anna and her friends sneak out at night to meet up in the park and regularly catch the attention of the police in Commerce City, but they’re not up to no good. They’re practicing their superpowers and training to become a new team of vigilante superheroes. Meanwhile, Anna’s mother, Celia, is trying to rescue the city through more conventional means—namely, her wildly successful development company, currently bidding the city to start a major revitalization project. But when a shell company frivolously sues West Corp to derail their bid, Celia manages to slyly recruit her teenage daughter to investigate the organization with her team, and they discover a new archvillain, the Executive. In this follow-up to After the Golden Age (2011), Vaughan adds a liberal dose of family drama to tried-and-true superhero tropes. Celia’s struggle to balance her life as a mother and a powerful executive is so at the fore that the superhero elements often seem merely incidental, but readers looking for an unusual spin on a mother-daughter dynamic will find a lot to like. --Sarah Hunter


“More than a superhero story, this is a tale of finding your true self and realizing that good and evil often come in various shades.” ―RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars, a Top Pick! on After the Golden Age

“Vaughn has written such simple and elegant prose to tell a story of superheroes who are just like regular folk….I enjoyed every minute of being glued to it.” ―Sacramento Book Review on After the Golden Age

“A strong outing...well worth the quick, intense read.” ―Library Journal on After the Golden Age

“A thrilling yarn.... Good old-fashioned comic book fun.” ―Locus on After the Golden Age

“[A] warm homage to and deconstruction of classic comic books.... For readers who admire Lois Lane more than Superman.” ―Kirkus Reviews on After the Golden Age
