On Feb. 17, Hero author Perry Moore passed away from an apparent overdose of pain medication. Moore also produced the Narnia movies; details about his projects appear at MovieWeb and doorQ.

The novel Hero involves a gay teen who joins a group of superheroes. I had written an extremely brief review of Hero, which follows.

I grew up loving DC Comics superheroes, so I enjoyed the many nods to them here. Hero pokes a little fun while playing homage, but it also explores the "secret life" themes in engaging ways.
