Webcomic: Comic book character out to shoot his author. Why? #Blerd comics fan Jace traverses his collection of stories to find out–and figure out how to stop the murder. In this mixed-media webcomic you’ll set the background for the 2017 novel as you follow Asian-American superhero Skye and his team of Guardians through the whacky tales that make us love comics and the ugly tropes that make us hate them to answer the all-important question: if your author was responsible for all your mortal suffering, would killing him save your world, or damn your soul? All at becominghero.ninja.
Novel: 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.
But Skye won’t open up when Jace tries to ease him out of PTSD, and the author’s still torturing his friends. 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.
