Freedom's fifteen minutes are over

Software pirates Mostly extinct dinosaurs Giant barbarians Crooning criminals Captain Freedom's beat them all, saved the world, and looked fantastic doing it--but he couldn't fend off middle management.

The Superhero lifestyle is all that Captain Freedom has ever known. What's he supposed to do now? Enter politics? Write a children's book?

Freedom's in a bad way and he's only a stint in rehab away from a lifetime of celebrity reality shows. But with the guidance of his new life coach, maybe Freedom can stumble in a new direction--even if it means having to make peace with his parents . . . or finally commit to a single long-term archenemy.

Praise For Captain Freedom

“Captain Freedom is a truly funny and energetic romp of a social satire, a terrific send up of not only of super heroes, but the cult of personality in general.”
--Christopher Moore, author of Lamb and Fool
