Dynamite in collaboration with Curiosity Ink Media is tapping into the middle grade readers (ages 8 through 12) demographic with their new graphic novel The Legion of Forgettable Supervillains. Written by longtime children’s book and graphic novel scribe J.E. Bright (Batman & Robin Adventures, Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons), art, colors, and cover are by ComicUp!
Read the synopsis below:
“Young Ben Mondo comes from a legacy of super-heroics in Saga City, passed down by his grandfather, the awesome Mr. Infinite. Though today, his identity of Robust Boy is constantly being outshone by the snobby Sir Superior, who gets all the attention, admiration, and friends. Ben finds solace in hanging out with other reject heroes, but has always wanted more.
Everything for him changes when one day he stumbles right into a bank heist. As the robbers escape, they toss Ben a bag of loot. In the chaos, he drops it and flees, but a photographer at the scene of the crime catches him with a blurry snap. When the picture goes viral, Ben is suddenly known as an infamous mystery villain! Is there much of a difference between fame and infamy?
Together with his fellow rejects, Ben creates the Forgettable Supervillains Society. They dedicate their newfound identities to mayhem, fortune, and fame – but they will soon learn that perhaps their attempts at villainy may save the day after all!”
The 100+ page paperback is yet another collaboration between Dynamite Entertainment, Curiosity Ink Media, and a range of diverse creative voices in crafting unique picture books, graphic novels, and more for younger readers with both original and existing properties.
