Review

It should have been Luke - superhero expert and comic-lover - who was given superpowers and instructed to save two universes. But Luke nips away for a wee, and returns to find it's his nerdy homework-loving brother, Zack, who's been transformed into Star Lad (despite refusing to wear a cape!)

Zack halts a runaway bus and the Star Lad legend goes viral. And, as an asteroid threatens world annihilation, Zack goes missing: investigations lead to the mysterious Crystal Comics. Can Luke find Zack in time to save the planet?

Fast-moving, very funny, and gleefully mining the comic potential of the superhero genre, this is an inventive story that handles the combined frustrations and affections of sibling relationships with sensitivity.
