Review Quotes:

"Put on the AC/DC soundtrack and grab your superhero cape! Hope Bolinger and Alyssa Roat deliver a hilarious, punchy, one-of-a-kind smash-the perfect read for Marvel and DC Comic fans. Dear Hero dazzles with its brilliant wit, irony, and loveable characters. Few other books have tugged at my heartstrings and made me laugh out loud, ranking Dear Hero as one of my favorite reads of 2020."

-Caroline George, author of Dearest Josephine (TNZ Fiction, HarperCollins)

"Playfully epic, adorably dark-a fun and witty ride."

-AJ Vanderhorst, author of The Mostly Invisible Boy

"A witty and compelling story, packaged in a delightfully unique form. I enjoyed it!"

-Kerry Nietz, award-winning author of Amish Vampires in Space

"Dear Hero is a fresh take on a modern superhero tale. It's complete with heroes, villains, romance, and epic humor. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this journey! If these ladies produce another book within this universe, it will be on my auto-buy list."
