Got superpowers? Daredevil's discernment? Wonder Woman's wisdom? Batman's sense of justice?

Mild-mannered minister by day, H. Michael Brewer transforms nightly into Comic Book Man. Bolstered by bulletproof biblical backup, Brewer delves into myths about man and Maker. Is God more like Green Arrow or the Punisher? How can you model your church after the Fantastic Four? What can the X-Men teach about unity? Comic Book Man reveals all this, tests your superpowers, and leads you in an unforgettable study for small groups.

(No capes required.)
