"Riveting...a multipart zombies-versus-superheroes franchise that seems destined for the big screen." --LA Weekly on the Ex-Heroes series
When he's awake, George Bailey is just an ordinary man. Five days a week he coaxes his old Hyundai to life, curses the Los Angeles traffic, and clocks in at his job as a handyman at the local college.
But when he sleeps, George dreams of something more.
George dreams of flying. He dreams of fighting monsters. He dreams of a man made of pure lightning, an armored robot, a giant in an army uniform, a beautiful woman who moves like a ninja.
Then one day as he's walking from one fix-it job to the next, a pale girl in a wheelchair tells George of another world, one in which civilization fell to a plague that animates the dead--and in which George is no longer a glorified janitor but one of humanity's last heroes.
Her tale sounds like madness, of course. But as George's dreams and his waking life begin bleeding together, he starts to wonder--which is the real world, and which is just fantasy?
