• From the book...

    I can't afford to let myself feel good, to let my guard down, to think for a single moment that I belong.

    Because I don't.

About the Author

16ResidencyEveOrientation056 copy_1.jpg

Barry Lyga is a recovering comic book geek. When he was a kid, everyone told him that comic books were garbage and would rot his brain, but he had the last laugh. Raised on a steady diet of comics, he worked in the comic book industry for ten years, but now writes full-time because, well, wouldn’t you?

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy & Goth Girl is his first novel. He lives in the desert with a comic book collection that is just way too big.

You can learn more about Barry on his web site at barrylyga.com. It’s still very much a work in progress, but you’ll forgive him for that, won’t you?
