Before there was "WATCHMEN," there was SUPERFOLKS....David Brinkley used to be a hero, the greatest the world had ever seen--until he retired, got married, moved to the suburbs, and packed on a few extra pounds. Now all the heroes are dead or missing, and his beloved New York is on the edge of chaos. It's up to Brinkley to come to the rescue, but he's in the midst of a serious mid-life crisis--his superpowers are failing him. At long last this classic satire that inspired comic books like "Watchmen" and "Miracleman" is back in print. It's a hilarious thriller that digs deep into the American psyche.
