This book consists of not one, but TWO short stories: Super Bad Hair Day, and The Poet and The Supersplainer Twice the literary laughs Twice the superheroic slugging Twice the alliterative adverbs Twice the sugar, or is it corn syrup? (The second edition also contains a preview of my upcoming novel, Holly's origin story: The Comic Book Code ) I am Dave M. Strom. I write stories about comic book author and short-tempered superheroine Holly Hansson, and her superpowered and often geeky friends. I like to put funny into my superhero stories. More laughs, less grim and gritty. Months ago, Holly Hansson's graphic novel, "The Last Super," was climbing the best seller list. Holly got her geek girl's dream: in her twenties, she was becoming a successful author where her lady protagonist was brave and smart and strong But through a combination of DNA, radiation, a superpower extra-dimensional force, or other comic book type stuff, Holly Hansson also got superpowers, along with thousands of other comic book fanboys and fangirls. Holly is still adjusting to her new job as the most powerful super of her world. And to her super-bosom, which came with her superpowers. Holly does not like where paparazzi aim their telephoto lenses. Super Bad Hair Day A battle-weary Super Holly shows up where the only man in the world can save her from the world's worst bad hair day: Lash the barber. Holly tells her old friend the story of how grit and grime and asphalt was ground into her long blonde hair. But Holly has a date with destiny in less than half an hour, can her barber Lash possibly free Holly's long blonde hair from the clutches of a tarry monster in time? The Poet and the Supersplainer Super Holly fights a battle on two fronts The evil Karate Queen is intent on stealing the prototype 5-D phone from the CEO of Apricot Computer With that phony power, what evil will that villainess inflict upon the world? And upon Cal "The Intellectual" Critbert, Holly's grim, super-smart, heroic boyfriend, whom The Karate Queen is eyeing in a hungry way? Is Holly's super-strength and super-telekinesis a match for the Queen's super-karate and rhyming battle banter?
