L.A.ser Boy is the story of Lorenzo Almanzo. With his often spectacular but tactically useless superpowers, Zo makes his living as the sidekick on a superhero television show. The show is a mild hit then, when the star quits unexpectedly, Zo gets fired. In a world in which superheroes are real, Zo is a fake, a poser, a pretender. Then he meets a real vigilante, Zenda the Magnificent, and his life changes.
The United Protectors, the world’s premiere superhero group, battle supervillains, terrorists, dictators and each other. Their leader, Valloria, the most powerful of all superheroes, pushes the Protectors hard. In order to keep the planet and its people safe, Valloria will go to any lengths. Her drive and the sacrifices she demands of both herself and the other Protectors tear the group apart.
That’s when the aliens attack.
An epic, sweeping story that spans the ages and the galaxy The Long Invasion begins on Earth and spreads out to encompass multiple worlds. L.A.ser Boy is set in a new superhero universe that combines the best elements of the Thomas, Buscema and Adams’ Kree-Skrull War, Moore and Gibbons’ Watchmen and Busiek and Ross’ Astro City. L.A.ser Boy introduces a cast of characters that are both familiar and brand new. Watch them struggle and grow in a way no other superhero series has done. All right here (and nowhere else) in the books of The Long Invasion.

Cameron has been a fan of fantasy and science fiction ever since he can remember. Growing up he used to fall asleep listening to CBS Radio Mystery Theater and spent Saturday afternoons watching Creature Double Feature on WLVI, channel 56. Also, he collected comics and ended up doing his master’s thesis (“How Green Is Your Power Ring?”) on the structure of the modern, American superhero comic book.
His mother is a published poet and his father a world-class educator. He caught the “writing bug” from them at a very early age. He can remember scrawling short stories on scraps of paper in his bedroom late at night when he was supposed to be asleep.
His old job allowed him to travel the world. He has been to the Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat, the Taj Mahal, the Sahara Desert, Machu Picchu and countless other spots in Asia, Africa and South America. He has also traveled extensively throughout the United States and is, once again, living in the Colorado Rockies.
He has been inspired by both his travels and all the people he’s met and worked with along the way.
