Is it a falling bird? Is it an out-of-control plane? No, it's Boy Zero, Wannabe Hero. The first title in this hilarious new illustrated series, perfect for fans of Captain Underpants and Ben 10.
Charlie Applejack's career as a superhero might be over before it's even begun. His mother wants him to choose a safe job as a TV game show host and the Super School has rejected him because his super powers aren't super enough.
However, when the evil villain and wannabe rock star General Pandemonium captures all of the world's superheroes, and threatens to vaporise every pair of pants on the planet, it's up to Charlie to save the day.
Will he be a superhero - or will he be a superzero?
