“How to explain this mystic monster League of Somebodies? Part old-school epic, part coming-of-age tale, and part comedy in the spirit of Mel Brooks’s Young Frankenstein . . . Samuel Sattin is a mad scientist.”
– Victor LaValle, author of Big Machine and The Devil in Silver
‘Sattin has managed to create something new: A superhero story about (twisted) fathers and (frightened) sons, this non-comic comic-book is a story telling bonanza whose major elements are not only thematic, they’re chemical.’
- Amanda Stern, author of The Long Haul
Lenard Sikophsky’s father has been feeding him plutonium since the age of six in the hopes of making him the world’s first bona fide superhero. First, he must pass the unusual tests of manhood locked in the centuries old tomb, The Manaton, a secret relic passed down for generations. Falling in love with the beautiful, compulsively suicidal Laura Rabinowitz doesn’t make his life any easier. But with the guidance of the Sikophsky men, the antiquated rulebook, and of course a healthy amount of plutonium, Lenard learns to accept his fate as an exactor of justice. . . .
Twenty years later, Lenard’s son Nemo is introduced to the same destiny as his father, only this time the violent entity called THEY are in dangerous pursuit. Lenard’s life and the legacy of his family are put to the test when he is forced to defend everything he loves.
