Synopsis

Captain Boomerang's Comeback! by Blake A. Hoena, Erik Doescher, Mike DeCarlo, Lee Loughridge

After a series of random robberies, the FLASH's head is whirling at super-speed. He wants to take down this out-of-sight outlaw, but the confusing clues aren't adding up. For one man, however, each piece is part of a colossal comeback. The super-villain CAPTAIN BOOMERANG is out to seek revenge against the SCARLET SPEEDSTER! But the super hero knows what goes around comes around, and he's not about to let this crazy crook spin out of control.

About the Author

Blake A. Hoena grew up in central Wisconsin, where, in his youth, he wrote stories about robots conquering the Moon and trolls lumbering around in the woods behind his parent's house - and the fact that the trolls were hunting for little boys had nothing to do with Blake's pesky younger brothers. Later, he moved to Minnesota to pursue a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Since graduating, Blake has written more than forty books for children, including retellings of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and the Perseus and Medusa myth. Most recently, he's working on graphic novels for Sports Illustrated Kids and writing stories about superheroes. Erik Doescher is a concept artist for Gearbox Software and a professional illustrator. He has freelanced with DC Comics for almost 20 years, in addition to many other licensed properties. He lives in Texas with his wife, five kids, two cats, and two fish. Mike DeCarlo is a longtime contributor of comic art whose range extends from Batman and Iron Man to Bugs Bunny and Scooby-Doo. He resides in Connecticut with his wife and four children. Lee Loughridge has been working in comics for more than fifteen years. He currently lives in sunny California in a tent on the beach.
