ENEMIES & ALLIES Released in Hardcover

Published May 6, 2009 in Comics - 1 Comment

My novel Enemies & Allies—the first meeting of Batman and Superman in the 1950s during the Cold War—has just hit bookstore shelves in hardcover from Morrow and DC.  

Jacket text:  “As America and the Soviet Union race to build their nuclear stockpiles, two extraordinary heroes must form an uneasy alliance.  These studies in opposites—shadow and light—must overcome their distrust of each other to battle evil and injustice.

“Sputnik silently circles in the skies above the fabled cites of the United States as danger lurks in the Earth’s darkest corners.  In Gotham, the shadowy vigilante known as the Batman haunts Gotham’s streets…and the police are just as afraid of this Dark Knight as the city’s criminals are.

“In Metropolis, the notorious Lex Luthor is leveraging international tensions to build LuthorCorp into a military-industrial empire, competing against his business rival Wayne Industries, which is run by Gotham’s enigmatic millionaire, Bruce Wayne.  Luthor’s activities have raised the interest of Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, who is beginning to realize that Luthor may stop at nothing to achieve success.  At the same time, Clark Kent and Jimmy Olsen are investigating the rumored crash of a flying saucer. Clark is desperate to know if there may be other lost interplanetary visitors on Earth secretly living among them—visitors like himself.

“When Batman’s and Superman’s paths cross, their lives change, and history will never be the same.”

Dear Mr. Anderson.

I very much enjoyed LAST DAYS OF KRYPTON and have just today picked up ENEMIES & ALLIES from Barnes and Noble here in Downtown Denver. Given I was born in a small town in Kansas and carry the last name of Kent, it no wonder I have an interest in all things Superman.

I am very much looking forward to reading your latest book.

I am a big collector of books/media related to Comics. and have a specific interest in books around existing Comic Book characters. I look forward to future offerings from you. I have a specific interest in Dr. Strange, as an example, and have for years been interested in doing for that character what you are doing for DC characters.

I would love to correspond with you in this regard, hoping to get some direction in getting started, or even discussing plot lines. If you have an interest, please do let me know.
