  • Me” and “Fanboy” are the same person — the narrator of the book, a 15-year-old brainy outcast who’s way too smart and way too sarcastic for his own good. You can see his blog entries here.
  • Cal” is Cal Willingham, Fanboy’s best friend. Cal’s a popular jock, but he’s also smart as hell and loves comic books, especially old comics from the 1980s and even earlier. Cal blogs here.
  • Kyra is the Goth Girl, dark and mysterious and troubled. Someone has hacked into her computer and is busy posting old letters, poems, and private journal entries here.
