  • Summary: Donald is a teenager with extraordinary artistic talents. His future as a graphic novel artist should be bright. As his life is consumed by fantastic daydreams, Donald soon discovers that a very real enemy is trying to kill him. With an unorthodox psychologist teaching Donald to find the light in life in an otherwise dark world, Death of a Superhero tells the story of discovering life, love, and death in this exceptionally honest portrayal of a teenage boy facing his own mortality.
