Superheroes and villains need temp-workers too – who else is going to maintain the social media accounts?
Anna is hired to build a database, but soon finds herself promoted to fieldwork (in this case, standing in the background while a villain kidnaps the mayor’s son). When Supercollider swoops in to save the day, Anna sustains serious injuries. Laid off and with months of painful recuperation ahead, she begins to run the numbers on superheroes’ collateral damage. The results draw the attention of the world’s most dangerous villain.
What good can come from teaming up with Supercollider’s nemesis? Maybe Anna doesn’t care about good. Maybe we shouldn’t either.
Natalie Zina Walschots delivers body horror, some vicious laughs, and a strong anti-heroine in Anna. Here’s hoping she delivers a sequel too.
