“Ready Player One” author Ernie Cline says of the book: “I loved this pop culture-infused tale of shamed superheroes struggling to survive a zombie apocalypse in the ruins of Hollywood. It’s The Avengers meets The Walking Dead with a large order of epic served on the side.”
Originally published by a small, print-on-demand press without any publicity or marketing support and almost no physical distribution, Peter Clines’s brilliant debut,Ex-Heroes, which combines the best of the sci-fi, thriller, horror, and adventure fiction genres, still managed to draw an incredible cult following. Now, Broadway is thrilled to introduce Ex-Heroes (Broadway; On Sale February 26, 2013; $14.00) to a whole new slew of fans with the release of this paperback original. With three more novels to follow in the series, including Ex-Patriots (April 23, 2013) and Ex-Communication (July 9, 2013), Ex-Heroes is sure to appeal to fans of such hits as Watchmen, World War Z, and Ready Player One.
