Publisher Comments:

Beware! Superheroes and villains are on the loose! Discover the origins of caped crusaders and their ingenious nemeses, uncover their terrible secrets, witness their victories and defeats. Who will triumph? Who might live to see another day? Only this dazzling array of award-winning and bestselling super-authors from the worlds of comics, urban fantasy, horror, science fiction, young adult, and noir can tell: Mike Mignola (Hellboy), Christopher Golden (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Of Saints and Shadows), George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire, Wild Cards), Cory Doctorow (Little Brother), Carrie Vaughn (Kitty and the Midnight Hour), Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep), Jonathan Lethem (The Fortress of Solitude), Tim Pratt (Blood Engines), Kim Newman (Anno Dracula), and many more.

Synopsis:

With hard-hitting stories from masters of the realm and fresh new talents, this vastly adventurous anthology collects some of the most exciting and original superhero stories of the past few decades, along with an array of entertaining and informative articles on the evolution of the genre. The origins of caped crusaders and their ingenious nemeses will be uncovered, their terrible secrets revealed, and their victories and defeats chronicled for all. From luminaries such as Gene Wolfe and Cory Doctorow to rising stars including Cat Rambo and Camille Alexa, this exciting blend of voices will release these guardians and villains from their common realm of comics, graphic novels, and movies and set them free to roam in the wild world of prose and their readers' imaginations.
