What if every superhero in the world had to give up what makes them special in order to save the world, and become their meek alter egos forever?
I just finished reading A Once Crowded Sky by Tom King, a former CIA counterterrorism operations officer slash intern at Marvel and DC. While its character origin stories are interesting, King's debut novel — like Watchmen, which it is indebted to — is not particularly enjoyable.
What should I read next?
Rory: The Fault in Our Stars.
Jon: I'm on a library wait list for that. 12 hold requests ahead of me.
Jon: "When an assassin guns down leading Heisman contender, Eliab McDermott, during the Iron Bowl game in Auburn, Alabama, a team of investigators, led by legendary Nashville PD detective Shot Glass Reynolds, sets out to crack the case."
Jon: Alas, no libraries in my area carry it.
Jon: This is fiction for young adults?
