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 guy’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 affairsand prepare to die. Now, after years of extraordinary adventures and crushing tragedies, the world’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.

About the Author
Paul Tobin lives in Portland, OR, despite not having a single tattoo. He has written the adventures of Spider-Man, Batman, the Hulk, Superman and hundreds of other comic book characters, bringing a sense of realism and character to a genre filled with over-the-top action. He and his wife, artist Colleen Coover, are the creators of two graphic novels, the acclaimed Banana Sunday as well as the recently released and oddly wonderful Gingerbread Girl.
Paul enjoys studying history, burlesque theater, thunderstorms, pretty girls on bicycles, good bagels, evil muffins, and occasionally claims that he would like to punch-fight a mastodon, though those claims have significantly tapered off after he stood next to a life size model at the Natural History Museum in Paris.

I couldn't put it down. Possibly the most relatable superhero story I've read. Action-packed but full of emotion as well. Two thumbs up
Unexpected, but worth the read
A perfect book for summer!
This book suffered from many failures. The worst of which was the ending. It was trite, childish, and sophmoric. The problem with success is soon no one is willing to tell you, 'bad idea'. This book makes an attempt at being profound but falls far short. The author needed another run through with a good editor. There is the seed of a good idea here but it was buried in half-baked high school pseudo philosophy and a weird preoccupation with adolescent sexuality.
