Batman v Superman – Cross Fire!


Superfriends everywhere may enjoy my original companion novel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, set before the events in the film — Cross Fire!

Cross Fire is the story of young Rory Greeley, and how he becomes involve in the escalating conflict between the two superheroes.

Most of all, it was such a pleasure to write the banter between Bruce Wayne and Alfred, along with Clark Kent and Lois Lane.  Nothing quite like crafting a new story for these pillars of American popular culture!
