HERO: 9 TO 5 – DISPOSABLE HEROES – PRE-ORDER NOW!
Hero: 9 to 5 – Disposable Heroes, the third book in Ian Sharman and David Gray’s hit Hero: 9 to 5 series from Markosia, is available to pre-order now!
The book returns once more to a world where being a superhero is just another nine to five job!
When Frostica flies into a jealous rage after Flame-O and Pink Girl are caught kissing on live TV, the government gives in to pressure from religious fundamentalists to ban superhero agencies. All hell breaks loose as villains reign supreme across the UK. Nobody is safe in this mad rampage, not the Houses of Parliament and not even the Queen herself!
“When we started working on this book nobody had ever heard the word Brexit,” comments writer Ian Sharman, “the only referendum mentioned in the original plot outline was the Scottish independence referendum. However, making a book as inherently political as Hero: 9 to 5 over the last four years it inevitably became about Brexit, just everything else has in the UK.”
That said, Hero: 9 to 5 – Disposable Heroes doesn’t just take a satirical swipe at British politics, it also takes on celebrity culture, evangelical Christianity and the monarchy, while of course still sending up the absurdities of mainstream superhero comics. So, join Messrs. Sharman and Gray as they go on an iconoclastic rampage across the cornerstones of British culture, while being sure to trample the daisies along the way!
Oh, and did we mention that it’s funny?

“Ahead of its time, this existential masterpiece is the ultimate Brexit allegory, but more importantly it’s a side-splittingly glorious read.” – Annika Eadehttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/hero-9-to-5-disposable-heroes-pre-order-now/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Hero-9-to-5-logo-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Hero-9-to-5-logo-150x64.pngNewsdisposable,heroes,order
