After a botched genetic enhancement leaves him tough but unsightly, hard-drinking anti-hero Harry McComber is hiding instead of saving Philadelphia from the super maniac who returns every day to wreak havoc. When he's forced to venture out, a chance encounter inspires him to take a shot at getting famous: he can't win the fight, but living to talk about it may be enough, if it's caught on camera.
"Deadpool fans will adore this superhero thriller. Thrash deftly combines dark comedy and dystopian sci-fi to create one of the most original stories of the year."
"This book has the bitter edge of “Watchmen” and the darkness of “Gotham,” along with gleefully acidic humor from the protagonist that counters the more graphic and gruesome moments. Palmer’s savagely casual writing style makes this truly strange read a violent delight."
