The Pen and Cape Society’s superhero fiction podcast, Throwing the Gun, came out with a new episode earlier this month discussing the endings of some major superhero fiction series.
Toren Chenault has been talking about his upcoming superhero novel, Mystic Man, on Twitter, and it sounds awesome. Read his tweets and get hyped.
Karen Diem posted a cool cut scene from Power, the third book in her Arca series, on her blog. But if you haven’t read the series yet, you should start with the first chapter of book 1 here. It has one of the best first lines I’ve seen in a while.
If you’re looking for some transmedia superhero fiction, Project Indigo sounds fun and original. It follows “disgraced former superhero Margo ‘Indigo’ Mason’s efforts to rehabilitate her terrible public image via the Internet after her roommate accidentally blows her cover.” You can check out the website or watch the story unfold on social media like Margo’s Twitter account.
If you’ve been thinking of reading Renegades by Marissa Meyer, Emily Talks About Books just posted a review.
