Preview: Supers (Book One) by Frédéric Maupomé and Dawid

Supers (Book One) is the first of a series of superheroic graphic novels by French creators Frédéric Maupomé and Dawid, being published from November by Top Shelf/IDW. It features real life-meets-super-powered action when three refugee siblings start a new school year as the ultimate illegal aliens.

“Will you tell me about Mom?”
“I don’t remember much, you know.”
“You can make it up. I don’t mind.”

Mat, Lili, and Benji aren’t from around here. Abandoned on planet Earth, hiding far from their home, they can’t even use their powers in public, for fear of being discovered. Starting at a new school is hard enough already…

Supers won the first ever Youth Award from ACBD (the French Association of Comics Critics) and now it’s in English – a 112-page, full-color softcover graphic novel, though it still has French flaps,

6.5″ x 9”, it’s out from Top Shelf/IDW in November.
