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
