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 and Goth Girl is his first novel. He lives near the Mason-Dixon Line with his wife and a comic book collection that is just way too big.

Lyga says that "the entire book just popped into my head all at once
