Captain Freedom: A Superhero's Quest for Truth, Justice, and the Celebrity He so Richly Deservesby G. Xavier Robillard
Synopses & Reviews
Freedom's fifteen minutes are over!
Software pirates! Mostly extinct dinosaurs! Giant barbarians! Crooning criminals! Captain Freedom's beat them all, saved the world, and looked fantastic doing it—but he couldn't fend off middle management.
The Superhero lifestyle is all that Captain Freedom has ever known. What's he supposed to do now? Enter politics? Write a children's book?
Freedom's in a bad way and he's only a stint in rehab away from a lifetime of celebrity reality shows. But with the guidance of his new life coach, maybe Freedom can stumble in a new direction—even if it means having to make peace with his parents . . . or finally commit to a single long-term archenemy.
"Captain Freedom" is a truly funny and energetic romp of a social satire, a terrific send up of not only superheroes, but the cult of personality in general--Christopher Moore, author of "Fool."
A satirical adventure starring would-be hero Captain Freedom finds him losing his job in the wake of a disastrous dinner party and enlisting the aid of a life coach to figure out what went wrong, from his quest for a sidekick and his battles against software pirates to his unappreciated efforts to save the world.
