All Tom's friends really are superheroes.
There's the Ear, the Spooner, the Impossible Man. Tom even married a superhero, the Perfectionist. But at their wedding, the Perfectionist was hypnotized (by ex-boyfriend Hypno, of course) to believe that Tom is invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him. Six months later, she's sure that Tom has abandoned her.
So she's moving to Vancouver. She'll use her superpower to make Vancouver perfect and leave all the heartbreak in Toronto. With no idea Tom's beside her, she boards an airplane. Tom has until the wheels touch the ground in Vancouver to convince her he's visible, or he loses her forever.
The tenth anniversary edition of Andrew Kaufman's perennial favourite, All My Friends Are Superheroes, includes a new catalogue of superheroes and gorgeous illustrations by Tom Percival.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Fans of comic books and romantic comedies will both adore the surreal, hilarious world of All My Friends Are Superheroes. Tom is an ordinary guy who hangs out with eccentric do-gooders like the Businessman, who can instantly assess a stranger’s net worth, and the Frog Kisser, who turns dorks into winners. When Tom’s partner, the Perfectionist, is hypnotized by a vengeful ex on their wedding day, he must develop his own powers in order to break the spell. We were utterly smitten with Andrew Kaufman’s witty and imaginative story about love and finding your own superpower.
