Seven Comic Book Strips Volume 1
Publisher: Robert Jeschonek
Comic book and super-hero fans, rejoice! This volume includes seven scripts—mostly super-hero tales, plus one war/horror story—from a writer whose work has been published by DC Comics, among others. Robert T. Jeschonek has written plenty of scripts in his career, and these seven will shine a light on his writing process, his wild imagination…and some thrilling and thought-provoking adventures. The first in a series collecting some of his best work, this action-packed book includes seven scripts: "Super-Powered Poser Blues," in which a super-hero stand-in runs into unexpected problems while impersonating a mighty mortal; "My Date With Godling," in which a hard-driving cosmic god-hero launches a mission under false pretenses…a mission that quickly goes from intense to insane; "The Mime: On Bread Alone," in which an endangered priest is protected by a silent hero whose make-believe performances have real world consequences; "Young Soldiers Never Die," in which a future warrior discovers that one man's idea of a perfect soldier is another man's idea of pure hell; "The Child Is Father to the Man," in which the younger selves of three great old-time heroes leap forward to the future after suffering their greatest defeat; "Johnstown Man: Losing Ground," a tale of a blue collar steel town hero fighting crime in the age of layoffs; and "Don't Tug on Superstar's Cape," in which a super souvenir hunter goes after the ultimate prize from the ultimate hero and nearly loses everything in the bargain. Don't miss this collection of seven comic book scripts for one low price. It's the latest book from award-winning storyteller Robert T.
