Fight Crime! (A Love Story) is taking a break between episodes this week, but that doesn’t matter, because you’re reading Almost Invincible, right? 😉 For you voracious readers who finished the novel already and need more superhero stories to consume, here’s a selection of free superhero short fiction from around the web.
You should all read Amanda G. Helms’s short story, Starr Striker Should Remain Capitol City’s Resident Superhero, by Keisha Cole, 10th Grade Student. Written in the form of a civics essay by a tenth grader, it’s clever, topical, and biting in its humor.
Coffee Shop Crisis by Dale Ivan Smith is a light, fun story about an almost-retired supervillain picking a fight to save her favorite coffee shop.
If you’re in the mood for something more serious, Clemency by Chantal Boudreau is a superhero short story that deals with issues of abuse.
Do superheroes get vacation days? The Day Off by Martin Von Cannon tackles that question, and the answer will make you chuckle.
