An LGBTQ+ Superhero Novel

Cover artist: Melissa Uran
Format: Trade paperback (6" x 9"), 432 pages
A re-release of Joe Carriker’s critically-acclaimed LGBTQ+ superhero novel
The golden age of heroes is decades past. Society at large found it could not condone vigilantism. Now metahumans are just citizens — albeit citizens with incredible talents — who are assisted in living "normal" lives by the government.
Magnetically-empowered college student Rusty Adamson may have been a child during that glorious age of superheroics, but he vividly remembers the deeds of his idol, Sentinel. Sentinel used his incredible powers to save lives and right wrongs — until losing the man he loved and being publicly outed caused him to disappear from public life. When Rusty’s gay friend Kosma goes missing in Ukraine, Rusty realizes there is still a place for superheroes, and sets out to bring Sentinel out of the shadows to help find his friend.
But the disappearance of Kosma is one small move in a staggering global plot against queer youth. In the modern world, a team of supers may seem old-fashioned, but the battle against the sinister forces targeting the LGBTQ+ world may require some incredible reinforcements.
THIS BATTLE MAY REQUIRE A SACRED BAND
