Let’s face it – gas prices are through the roof, the economy’s in recession, and we’re still in the middle of a war. Where’s a new superhero when you need one?

Authors John McNally and Owen King have set out to answer this question with their new Free Press anthology: Who Can Save Us Now?: Brand-New Superheroes and Their (Short) Stories. The anthology features 22 new superheroes (and a few villains) from 22 different writers, all illustrated by artist Chris Burnham…and all equipped to take on the challenges of the modern world. King and McNally chatted with us about what readers can expect, their own favorite comics, and how this was all inspired by meerkats.
