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 . . .

Deviant by Kataclysm

You don't need a gun to win a war.

In 2009, the world changed as Seattle fell to a tsunami, one created with sheer willpower. The rise of “Deviants,” superhumans with unique abilities and powers, was almost immediate. Factions formed, fighting themselves and each other, and once mundane criminals became lethally efficient killers. Heroes rose up, but they were few and far between. It is now 2025. The . . .

WONDER CITY STORIES

Life in Wonder City
