A Slacker And His Heroic Double – Hero Squared Gets And Omnibus From Boom

by Hannah Means Shannon

Boom! Studios has a new Omnibus edition arriving this week in softcover written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis, with a host of excellent artists involved including Joe Abraham, Nathan Watson, Cynthia Martin, Eduardo Barretto, Mark Badger, Chase Conley, Fabio Moon, Zio, Alfa Julia Bax, and Mike Cavallaro.

In Hero Squared, Milo’s “just another slacker in our world”, but on in parallel universe, his counterpart is the legendary superhero Captain Valor. When Valor is accidentally transported to our world, he moves in with Milo, but his “arch-nemesis” Calignous is the alternate reality version of Milo’s girlfriend Stephie, and she arrives with an “army of mutated penguins behind her”, too.

Here’s a substantial preview of the interior art on this collection:

This is the first time the entire series has been collected in a single volume, and includes the story of how Captain Valor’s team was created in prelude series Planetary Brigade.

The Hero Squared Omnibus SC arrives in shops today, Wednesday, August 30th, 2017, and is priced at $29.99.
