A modern superhero epic from the minds of Tom Peyer (THE WRONG EARTH) and Alan Robinson (PLANET OF THE NERDS). Penultiman, The Next-To-Last-Stage In Human Evolution, is the greatest, best-looking, and most admired super-hero in the world--so how can he stop hating himself? Only his android understudy, Antepenultiman, may hold the answer.

"We've seen characters who represent the ultimate stage of human potential, but I don't think we've met any who are just a little worse than the best," says writer Tom Peyer. "Imagine the anxiety of being so advanced--only to be outclassed. That's PENULTIMAN."

"A fun take on the Captain Marvel-style wholesome superhero, with notes of the mournful loss of family and home we often see in Superman. Except, instead of an 8-year-old boy or an alien sent far from home to avoid a cataclysmic disaster, Penultiman's exiled from 90,019 BCE to our time to live out his days...Peyer and Robinson blend Golden and Silver-Age sensibilities in this story while poking gentle fun at the tropes that make superheroes tick." -Multiversity Comics

"A really interesting comic... definitely pick it up." --Comic News Insider
