About this title

Synopsis:

Imagine living up to a legacy that no one can remember. Sky Girl and the Superheroic Legacy tells the story of DeDe Christopher, an ordinary teenager with an extraordinary destiny. DeDe is an average high school sophomore with dreams of winning the National Gymnastic Tournament and dating the school quarterback. But her world changes when she begins to develop fantastic abilities that are strangely similar to those of a fictional comic book super hero named SkyBoy. With the help of her best friend, Jason, a self-proclaimed comic geek, DeDe begins a quest to discover her true destiny as she confronts the all-too-real enemies and allies of SkyBoy. She must deal with capes, apes and aliens to find a way to live up to a legacy that no one can remember and become Sky Girl.

From the Author:

People ask me why I wrote Sky Girl.  Years and years ago, I wrote a story called "The Return of Power Boy."  I should note that this is the first story I ever authored.  The story originally was supposed to be included as part of a Comic Geek Speak podcast prose project that never manifested (listeners of the CGS podcast may recognize the characters named Peter and Bryan, who play a very important role in the story). The Return of Power Boy was my gateway into scifi and fantasy writing (it has since been published in Issue 10 of The Quarterly Journal of Superhero Fiction (Fall, 2009)). Without giving too much away, the story provides a very dark look at what happens when the super villain wins his never ending battles against his heroic nemesis.  That story was the inspiration for Sky Girl and the Superheroic Legacy. And while Sky Girl ended up being a much different character and a more light-hearted book, there are definitely some common themes between the two tales. The second reason for the creation of Sky Girl was my daughter, Elizabeth.  As a comic fan, I wanted to bring my daughter into my comic book world. As a father, I wanted a strong role model for Elizabeth.  Sky Girl presents both.
