Riveting a multipart zombies-versus-superheroes franchise that seems destined for the big screen. LA Weekly on the Ex-Heroes series
When he s awake, George Bailey is just an ordinary man. Five days a week he coaxes his old Hyundai to life, curses the Los Angeles traffic, and clocks in at his job as a handyman at the local college.
But when he sleeps, George dreams of something more.
George dreams of flying. He dreams of fighting monsters. He dreams of a man made of pure lightning, an armored robot, a giant in an army uniform, a beautiful woman who moves like a ninja.
Then one day as he s walking from one fix-it job to the next, a pale girl in a wheelchair tells George of another world, one in which civilization fell to a plague that animates the dead and in which George is no longer a glorified janitor but one of humanity s last heroes.
Her tale sounds like madness, of course. But as George s dreams and his waking life begin bleeding together, he starts to wonder which is the real world, and which is just fantasy?
