Super Powereds by Drew Hayes

A story of what comes before the capes and cowls.

Knowledge is power. That would be the motto of Lander University, had it not been snatched up and used to death by others long before the school was founded. For while Lander offers a full range of courses to nearly all students, it also offers a small number of specialty classes to a very select few. Lander is home to . . .

Anathema by Chrysalis

Those comic books were lying about superpowers.

In the year 2010, the Pulse changed our world irrevocably. It quickly became clear that superhero comics and movies had little impact on this new reality. Secret identities turned out to be illusions for most. The defining lines between hero and villain were blurry at best, and the prime duty of the United Nation’s powered Covenant was to hunt . . .

The Descendants by Landon "Vaal" Porter

A Comic Book Universe . . . without the pictures.

The Descendants is web serial styling itself after a comic book universe, right down to a format that included minis, annuals and one shot stories. The central plot follows the lives of a group of superpowered individuals (psionics) as they attempt to live together following a betrayal by the organization supposedly meant to protect them. Interpersonal relationships take as . . .

Wonder City Stories by Jude McLaughlin

Superpowers are the least of their problems...

Wonder City Stories is an ongoing serial that explores gender, race, and sexuality in a richly-populated superhero comic book universe, actively deconstructing the persistent themes of the genre through the eyes of a group of compelling characters who are unusual in that context: women, elderly people, POCs, LGBTQI people, and more. It’s a universe where the equivalent of Superman . . .

World Domination in Retrospect by Psycho Gecko

Psycho Gecko is not your normal punk with superpowers. He is every bit the crazy, violent, and comedic supervillain that you read about in comic books. He doesn’t want to conquer the world. He’d much rather conquer a hot dog eating contest, except he’d cheat by lacing his opponents’ wieners with ghost pepper. He wouldn’t even have the courtesy to . . .

THE ZOMBIE KNIGHT SAGA

Death Becomes Him

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Sep 6, 2013: "I’m not joking. If I were, you’d be laughing. I’m hilarious."

Weirdly witty and compelling are words that could describe Garavol the Grim Reaper, as well as the story "The Zombie Knight" itself, right from page one. I’ve always thought dialogue was a great way to start a story and draw the reader in, and here we have an intriguing opening conversation between a successfully suicidal teen and a "grim reaper" come to make an offer he could refuse, if he’d [more . . .]

THE ZOMBIE KNIGHT SAGA

Reaping the Benefits of Good Storytelling

By DanWeatherly, author of The New Devil

Sep 27, 2013: It’s not often you find a fresh take on a superhero mold.

Though, strictly speaking, The Zombie Knight is more of a supernatural fantasy story than a superhero story, it has enough in common to feel comfortable and familiar but enough to distinguish it so that it doesn’t feel boring and derivative.

Instead of getting bitten by a radioactive spider, The Zombie Knight’s protagonist, Hector, is saved from death by a reaper, [more . . .]
