August 9, 2018
“A great adventure that will delight young and old alike.” — Bande à Bulle
"Grabbing you with its action (midnight mischief, combat), its themes (teamwork, self-improvement, coming of age, friendship, love), its humor, and its freshness, Supers pleases right away…. one of the most beautiful young-fantasy comics in recent years.” — Comixtrip
ACBD Award Winner! Real life meets super-powered action when three refugee siblings start a new school year as the ultimate illegal aliens.
“Will you tell me about Mom?”
“I don’t remember much, you know.”
“You can make it up. I don’t mind.”
Mat, Lili, and Benji aren’t from around here. Abandoned on planet Earth, hiding far from their home, they can’t even use their powers in public, for fear of being discovered. Starting at a new school is hard enough already…
Supers won the first ever Youth Award from ACBD (the French Association of Comics Critics) thanks to its rich blend of family tension, super-thrills, and classroom drama, all presented in gorgeous full-color artwork. Now it’s your turn to meet these awesome immigrants. Welcome to the family!
