Comic book pages inside a novel. Award-nominated voice actors. And a twisted, twisted protagonist who wants to kill his author.
All geared up towards creating the mixed-media comics-novel sensation of the year. Skye’s an Asian-American comic book superhero with a gun in his hand and a gripe against his author. Every girl Skye’s ever dated is either dead or trying to take over the world, and in the series finale, Skye’s best friend kills him. Or so he thinks. The weapon meant to disintegrate Skye lands him in his author’s universe. With a shot at revenge.
Skye, meet Jace. Jacen Howard’s a brilliant #blerd math whiz and comics aficionado–but at his West Baltimore high school that’s a bad thing. Black kids aren’t “supposed” to be good at math, and if the bullying isn’t bad enough, Jace’s cop-father regularly pisses off the neighbors. Jace doesn’t see himself as a hero; he’s just trying to survive.
Jace might be just the hero Skye needs.
Becoming Hero is a celebration of nerd diversity and the hero inside all of us, and for the pre-release, anyone who helps pay the comic book artist or the voice actors gets extra merch. Things like:
It’s worth checking out–and worth checking out quickly before all goes crazy in the fictional world. As Skye’s mood swings and nightmares escalate, Jace realizes that if he doesn’t uncover his roommate’s real identity soon, Skye will hurt someone–and Skye’s still deciding if murder will save his world, or damn his soul.
