Nine years ago, Steve Clarke was just a teenage boy in love with the girl of his dreams. Then a freak chemical spill transformed him into Reaver, the man whose super-powerful fists can literally take a year off a bad guyâ€™s life. Days ago, he found himself at the mercy of his arch-nemesis Octagon and a whole crew of fiendish super-villains, who gave him two weeks to settle his affairsâ€“and prepare to die. Now, after years of extraordinary adventures and crushing tragedies, the worldâ€™s greatest hero is returning to where it all began in search of the boy he once was . . . and the girl he never forgot.
Exciting, scandalous, and ultimately moving, Prepare to Die! is a unique new look at the last days of a legend.
“The deconstruction of superheroes has been accomplished before, but rarely has it been done with the vigor and affection of comics veteran Tobin in his nearly pitch-perfect superhero tale for grownups.” –Publishers Weekly
“Prepare To Die! is a fleet page-turner, whether Tobin is describing action or exploring Reaverâ€™s thoroughly damaged inner landscape.” –AV Club
