What’s the sign of a good writer? Versatility. And The F1rst Hero writer/creator Anthony Ruttgaizer definitely has it! His newest project the webcomic Heroes of Homeroom C is a definite departure from The F1rst Hero. Though it starts off as a superhero book we know from the conversation we had with Anthony in November that his brother and sister superhero team will be facing some tough changes it the future, “After twin twelve year old superheroes lose their powers in battle, their govt scientist parents move the family back to their hometown of “Tranquil, MA”. Anthony told What’cha Reading, But even “normal life” isn’t going to stay normal for too long for the Hathaway Twins.” (you can read more of that interview with Anthony Rut here: Anthony Ruttgaizer talks F1RST HERO & A Brand New Webcomic!).
He’s teamed up with Carlos Granda whose dark kind of creepy style on Pirouette (Pirouette #1 – A Dark Tale of Hope) blew us away, I wonder how he’ll handle something as seemingly normal as Middle School?
The webcomic launched yesterday, January 5th, and is scheduled to update on a Mondays and Thursdays. Find it here: www.heroesofhomeroomc.com
