Summary

It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But that is the lot of young Khorii—daughter of the legendary Acorna and her lifemate, Aari—who must now follow her own destiny through a fantastic universe of wonders and perils. 
Khorii became a hero in her own right as she fought to save the universe from a mysterious, deadly plague that not even the healing powers of the Linyaari could stop.  
Now, confined with the rest of the survivors on Paloduro, the home planet of the disease, it seems as if the danger may be fading, and Khorii and her friends may be able to stem the tide of death and disease . . . until ominous signs indicate that the perpetrators are near and that the epidemic is only beginning. As old enemies reemerge and a shocking family secret is revealed, Khorii must unlock the malevolent mysteries of the deadly pestilence with the aid of her android "brother" before their unknown foes complete their covert mission to cripple the entire star system.

    With a comic edge, Zero is a sci-fi space opera that charts the adventures of a bounty hunter called Oatmeal as he flies around the galaxy with his trusty sidekick, a genius kid called Jelly. 
    ... 
    Life's good for Oatmeal at the moment; when he isn't lounging on the coach watching reruns in his boxers, he's out smashing CRIMs and cashing bounty checks. 
    But then she comes along. And she is a galaxy-full of freaking trouble. It was just meant to be an ordinary rescue: save the Earth-girl from the nasty aliens, give her to the police, and cash that fat check. But Callie Hope is anything but ordinary. 
    Just one day with her, and Oatmeal finds himself being tracked down by every CRIM, galactic cop, and terrorist the Milky Way can throw at him. Now his options are painfully simple: take all the kid's cash and dump her or ... save the galaxy. 
    Zero is a two-part series. Both instalments are currently available.

    Everybody in Chicago has a "superhero sighting" story. So when a villain attacks editorial assistant Gail Godwin and she's rescued by superhero Blaze, it's a great story, and nothing more. Until it happens again. And again. Now the media has dubbed her Hostage Girl, nobody remembers her real name, and people are convinced that Blaze is just her boyfriend, Jeremy, in disguise. 
    Gail's not so sure. All she knows is that when both Jeremy and Blaze leave town in the same week, she's probably doomed. Who will save her now? 
    Yet, miraculously, the villains lose interest. Gail is able to return to her life … until she wakes up strapped to a metal table by a mad scientist who hasn't read the news. After escaping—now more than human herself—she's drawn into a secret underground world of superheroes. She'll have to come to terms with her powers (and weaknesses) to make it in the new society, and it's not easy. After all, there's a new villain on the rise, and she has her sights set on the one and only Hostage Girl.
