“Uproariously funny, this razor-sharp book is half a love-letter to fandom, half self-aware satire, and wholly lovable. I haven't read anything quite like this before!” —Sophie Gonzales, author of Only Mostly Devastated

“The most down-to-earth book about superheroes I've ever read. I laughed, I cried, and I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading it” —Mason Deaver, bestselling author of I Wish You All the Best

“Klune plays with superhero genre tropes and fan-fiction clichés with the skill of a true fan—completely aware of their ridiculousness but in love with them anyway. Hilarious, sweet, and absolutely super!” —Kirkus Reviews

“TJ Klune is doing powerful work that inspires and impresses. He is a gift to our troubled times, and his novels are a radiant treat to all who discover them.” —Locus

“If you’re looking for a book to read and then reread several times before the next Spider-Man movie releases, this will be perfect.” —Buzzfeed

“Klune’s deliberate use of traditional comic book themes, such as masking one's identity, mirror common struggles faced by neurodiverse and LGBTQIAP+ youth; this thoughtful approach urges readers to embrace their true selves.” —Shelf Awareness, starred review

“Part superhero homage, part sigh-worthy romance, part action-packed adventure, this novel is all kinds of comical fun... plenty of genuine laugh-out-loud moments.” —Bulletin Center for Children’s Books

“Just what teens who devour the CW’s DC shows and Marvel’s cinematic universe films need to tide them over as they await new seasons of superhero television.” —BookPage

“Klune’s romp is irresistibly readable…. Readers will be delighted!” —Booklist

“Klune takes cues from Peter Milligan’s classic queer comic Enigma, with an Everyman bewildered by the superhero story that seems to revolve around him. Hand to teens involved in fandom, writers of fan fiction, lovers of superhero stories, and queer romance readers.” —School Library Journal

For Flash Fire

Flash Fire is a perfect sequel...Klune beautifully blends romance, action, coming-of-age, and real-world issues, all grounded in a protagonist that feels as real as your best friend.” —Lauren Shippen, author of The Infinite Noise

“This sequel to the superhero tale The Extraordinaries (2020) is jam-packed with action, nefarious plots, romance, and puns....Spending more time with these characters is an absolute delight; the love they share and readily profess for each other, both platonic and romantic, is beautiful to witness. Another extraordinary installment.” —Kirkus Reviews

“With Klune’s trademark humour, new Extraordinary characters and the ultimate squad goals personified in Nick’s gang of queer besties, Flash Fire is an explosive, non-stop, plot-twisty extravaganza—the sequel that’s not to be missed this summer!” The Nerd Daily
