About the Author:

Jeffrey Brown is the best selling author and illustrator of the middle grade Jedi Academy series, as well as the Darth Vader and Son series. When he was a kid, Jeffrey always dreamed of growing up to draw comics and make books for a living—and now he’s living that dream! Jeffrey has written a number of autobiographical books for adults (ClumsyUnlikely, and A Matter of Life, among others, all from Top Shelf Productions), humorous graphic novels about cats (Cat Getting Out of a BagCats Are Weird, from Chronicle Books), and parodies like Incredible Change-Bots (and its two sequels, all also from Top Shelf).

His most recent project has been 40,000 years in the making: Lucy & Andy Neanderthal! Lucy and Andy are a brother and sister living in the stone age, where they struggle to survive mammoths, cave bears, and their own sibling rivalry. Lucy & Andy Book Two: The Stone Cold Age is available now.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Brown is best known for his unflinching autobiographical comics Clumsy and Unlikely. Here he ventures into genre territory with a hilarious superhero parody. Brown writes these stories in a deliberately simple, tongue-in-cheek style, and after a while, it's obvious they could be Golden Age Comics tales by any number of Hall of Fame cartoonists. Brown's archetypal hero, Bighead, defeats villains by using psychology and brainpower as much as brute force. For instance, Bighead overcomes his aptly named foe Crabby by giving him a kitten. Bullman, an "icon of senseless male aggression," is similarly defeated by pop psych. "Dammit, Bighead, you always make me feel like I'm walking on eggshells!" Bullman complains before the two sit down for a heart-to-heart talk. In the unfinished tale "Don't Cry," Bighead gets a taste of his own medicine. A villain named the Brit, who is married to Bighead's true love, Rebessica, plants seeds of doubt about Bighead's mission after Bighead kills some alien monkey invaders who may have been on a peace mission. Brown's art is crude but effective, and the witty stories both deconstruct and revitalize superhero clichés while building a detailed superhero world that's as charming as C.C. Beck's classic Shazam! stories. Brown is also a clever social commentator, with his finger firmly on the pulse of Gen Y mores and obsessions.
