Barry Lyga is a recovering comic book geek. According to Kirkus, he’s also a “YA rebel-.” Somehow, the two just don’t seem to go together to him.

When he was a kid, everyone told him that comic books were garbage and would rot his brain, but he had the last laugh. Raised on a steady diet of comics, he worked in the comic book industry for ten years, but now writes full-time because, well, wouldn’t you?

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy & Goth Girl is his first novel. Unsoul’d is his latest. There are a whole bunch in between, featuring everything from the aftermath of child abuse to pre-teens with superpowers to serial killers. He clearly does not know how to stick to one subject.

The can’t-miss crossover adventure continues as Supergirl and the Flash team up to save the multiverse!

While the Flash and Team Arrow closed the dimensional rift looming over Central City, they still have plenty of chaos to deal with: Cisco and Curtis are lost in time, thousands of speedster refugees are now stuck on their earth, and a mad bomber is at large. But when Anti-Matter Man arrives on Supergirl’s doorstep on her home of Earth-38, it’ll be all hands on deck for a team-up of epic proportions to stop him.

Picking right up from Green Arrow’s Perfect Shot, this action-packed follow-up promises to be one of the most exciting reads of the season as Supergirl and Superman join in on the crossover fun. The heroes from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will feature in the forthcoming third book of this can’t-miss trilogy.

In the privacy of her office, Ava Sharpe squeezed her eyes shut tight and groaned deep in her throat. She was the director of the Time Bureau, a beyond–top secret government organization devoted to policing the time stream and keeping history on track. The pressures that came with that job were almost unimaginable, and usually she dealt with them through a combination of rigid authority and no-nonsense organization.

Sometimes, though, like right now, it felt as though she’d been caught in a rainstorm with nothing but an old newspaper for an umbrella.

A part of her wondered if non-clones ever felt so completely overwhelmed. She had been designed and programmed by the original Time Master, Rip Hunter, to be the pinnacle of human perfection, but on days like this, she wondered if maybe Rip had dropped a codon here or there in his genetic manipulation, if the folks who’d grown her at Advanced Variant Automation Corporation had goofed up and made her slightly more susceptible to deep, deep frustration.

No, she figured. Everyone felt this way sometimes. In fact, she reasoned, her annoyance was one of the things that proved she was human, albeit in convenient duplicate form. And if she was the height of human development, then maybe her frustration was the apex of all human frustration, too.
