Author of the NY Times bestseller Crooked Little Vein delivers this graphic novel dealing with relatively disturbing ideas. Let's say you are a superhero who truly believes in truth, justice and the American Way. And let's say the President of the United States indulges in torture and illegal wars and gives no-bid contracts to mercenaries who are more interested in enforcing the terms of those contracts than protecting the US Constitution? And when faced with the truth of the situation the American public does nothing about it. What do you do?
Well, in Black Summer, the hero kills the President and insists Americans have another election. As predicted, all kinds of craziness breaks out. His old team comes out of retirement, a new secret team of heroes that are government operatives is activated, and caught in between all his is our military and us.
