Powerhouse: Hard Pressedby Adam Graham
Dave Johnson's dreams have come true. He's taken Seattle by storm as Powerhouse, a metal-clad crime fighter. His awesome array of powers has the underworld on the run, his charitable efforts are a success, and he has a popular comic book. When his publisher is bought out, he's given every fan's dream: he's tasked with creating his own line of comic books. His biggest problem is his tendency to attract campy, wannabe "supervillains" who aren't worthy opponents.
Mitch "the Pharaoh" Farrow wants to turn Dave's dream into a nightmare. Mitch's job is to spread cynicism ahead of an interdimensional alien invasion. The aliens' king has promised to cure Mitch's dying daughter when he takes over and Mitch will do anything to save her. He uses every tool at his disposal, from a massive media smear machine to a force field bubble that crushes its victim into atoms.
With the help of new allies and old friends, Powerhouse strives to protect his family and the citizens of Seattle from the forces of cynicism.

Mild-mannered dad Dave Johnson is back for his next adventure in Powerhouse Hard Pressed. This book picks up right after Fly Another Day and continues both the plight of Major Speed and the conflict between Dave "Powerhouse" Johnson and Mitch "Pharaoh" Farrow. Mitch throws all kinds of wild challenges Dave's way including his greatest nemesis yet: an etiquette guru with delusions of grandeur. While Mitch is recruiting allies, Dave likewise has his supporters including his family. Adam Graham continues his humorous writing style and includes several references to comic book lore and fictional detectives. Each of the characters have reasons for what they do and some of them face difficult choices that don't always work out as expected. Some characters even have a change of heart and switch sides. Powerhouse Hard Pressed was a fun book. I'll be looking for the next one slated to come out this winter.
