Described as “the comic book nerd’s Ready Player One” The Chowderhead Crusades is J. J. Walsh’s debut novel and reads as an authentic exploration of the socially progressive roots of comic books as well as being a rip-roaring action movie-esque space adventure!

It all started back at Comic-con, 2036. That’s when Cateklysm Catholicon popped out of thin air to decree that humanity was headed right down the crapper. His solution: entice the planet’s population to learn the lessons of superhero comics. Ridiculous? Damn straight. Just the same, “Cateklysm’s Challenge” was born, with a grand prize that promised to endow one lucky comic book scholar with “the power to change the world.”

Almost two decades later, Cateklysm and his Challenge have been forgotten by everyone but the “Chowderheads” – diehard superhero worshippers, who champion the progressive ideology infused into comics. Enter Clayton Clayborn, a seventeen-year-old, second-generation Chowderhead. He may be living a dystopian nightmare existence on a Martian space freighter, but he’s hellbent on winning the Challenge. Of course, that means recruiting his best friend and the girl he loves into a deadly showdown with homicidal, megalomaniac titan of industry, Luthor Norman. But as Stan Lee would put it, “Excelsior!”
