This striking, critically acclaimed autobiographical work tells a gut-wrenching but ultimately hopeful story of trauma and recovery, and makes a case for the power and importance of fictional heroes. It chronicles the effects of unthinkable childhood pain on the creator’s adult life, examining the conflict between the popularly-accepted “Cycle of Abuse” and the message at the core of all good superhero stories: “You are who you choose to be.”
Power Lunch Vol. 1
Joey is a sickly-looking kid who’s been raised to believe that he’s allergic to pretty much everything with a hue. His mother has him on a strict diet that avoids a huge list of food—anything that isn’t white is off the table. Literally. Why the restrictive diet? Well, it turns out every food gives Joey a different super power! Lunch time just got a whole lot crazier! Author: J. Torres, Artist: Dean Trippe.
Power Lunch Vol. 2
When Joey joins the school soccer team, he finally begins to feel like a normal kid, especially since he doesn’t need to use his food-fueled superpowers to score goals. All that changes with the star players of a rival team—two terrible twins who excel at cheating! If Joey uses his superpowers, he could teach the twins a lesson. But that would be cheating… wouldn’t it? Author: J. Torres, Artist: Dean Trippe.
