Evil can't hide when the Whiz Kid is on patrol!


All young Wally Crenshaw wants is to be a super, ever since he saw Hyperion and the Justice Brigade save the day in Washington, DC. But nothing ever happens in his hometown. A strange atmospheric anomaly means the internet is only on a couple of hours a day and cell phones don't work there at all. In many ways, Crumbly-by-the-Sea, New Jersey is the town that technology forgot.


And that's exactly why a certain super has retired there, hoping never to have to risk life and limb fighting superpowered villains or dimensional aliens ever again. But sleepy Crumbly-by-the-Sea is about to get a wake-up call, and things may never be the same!


"Supertown is a top-flight sci-fi adventure that introduces readers to a very memorable-and relatable-protagonist in Wally Crenshaw. Paul Kupperberg blends his decades of expertise writing fun, engaging superhero comics with skillful prose to create a can't miss YA novel. This book is a blast."-Alex Segura, author of Secret Identity


"In his captivating novel, Supertown, Paul Kupperberg embraces his inner kid, the one who fell in love with comic books and superheroes. With heart and soul and a sense of humor, he brings to life that fantasy we've all dreamed of at one time or another: what it would feel like to become a superhero in real life!"-Michael Uslan, Originator and Executive Producer of the Batman movie franchise and author of The Boy Who Loved Batman
