Surfing the net during a lightning storm has amazing consequences for a group of teenage friends. Superhero powers are theirs at the click of a mouse! Trouble is, they don't know what the powers will be until they try them out ...But super powers carry super responsibilities. When a weather-altering, world-conquering supervillain kidnaps their mum, they have to decide: save her ...or save the world! 'Rise of the Heroes' is the first book in the brilliant new series 'HERO.COM' - the perfect antidote to the anti-series 'VILLAIN.NET', also by screenwriter Andy Briggs. Which side are you on?
Andy was commissioned to officially reboot TARZAN - bringing a fresh take to the beloved Edgar Rice Burroughs character for a new generation of readers. He started writing on movie projects such as "JUDGE DREDD and "FREDDY VS JASON" and "FOREVERMAN" for Spiderman creator Stan Lee and legendary producer Robert Evans.
Andy went on to work on Warner Bros. "AQUAMAN" - while at the same time landing an eight-book deal with Oxford University Press for "HERO.COM" and "VILLAIN.NET". His childhood love of comics continues as he writes them - his first graphic novel RITUAL published by Markosia Comics, aimed for mature readers, while DINOCORPS is his latest, which is action-packed fun for all ages!
Currently he's working on numerous screenplays and getting ready to produce his first feature film.
TARZAN: THE GREYSTOKE LEGACY is the first of the new, officially rebooted, Tarzan titles - with TARZAN: THE JUNGLE WARRIOR launched during the Tarzan centenary and TARZAN: THE SAVAGE LANDS in 2013!
