THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR: A TRUE COMING-OF-AGE STORY OF MURDER, FORGIVENESS, AND THE PEACE ONLY FAITH CAN BRING is the (tentatively titled) uplifting, personal memoir filled with humor and gut-wrenching honest that serves as a convincing statement on the power of the Atonement to heal and to comfort. Due Fall 2020 from Cedar Fort Publishing.

There’s only one word to describe your dad getting shot a dozen times in an armed robbery: cool. Brock Heasley was twelve. The cost of terrible violence was more than just unknown to him—it was negligible. Besides, he never doubted his father would live. He could put footballs into orbit, just like Superman. That was the peak. The comedown was finding out his dad was human after all, sending Brock on a journey of self-discovery and forcing him to question everything he was raised to believe. Then, when tragedy strikes again years later and his father is murdered, Brock’s faith and capacity to forgive are put to the ultimate test.

SF Vol 1 cover-front

Where do old superfolk go when it’s time to get out of the game? To Valhalla―Home for the Supertired. Created and written by Brock Heasley, and masterfully illustrated by Marc Lapierre, The SuperFogeys is a comic saga that begins as ridiculous as it sounds, but then quickly turns into something much more poignant and devastating as our heroes are menaced by a mysterious villain with deep ties to their past. They’re all here: the lazy Captain Spectacular, the quick-to-action Spy Gal, heartsick sidekick Jerry, crotchety old speedster Swifty, the villainous Dr. Rocket, loony Star Maiden, morally compromised Tangerine, sad sack Soviet Sam, and, of course, the lovable anesthesiologist Space Pig. They’ll be forced to reckon with old sins, new threats, an alien invasion, time travel, the tempting lure of Las Vegas, and whether or not retirement was ever really a good idea in the first place. And maybe, just maybe…they’ll finally be able to answer the most important question of all: what really makes a hero?

At the same moment he catches his teacher giving illegal drugs to a student, Redmond Fairweather loses his friggin’ mind and steals Mr. Street’s prized possession—a stupid wooden sword with round edges that will never, ever cut through anything—“The Whomper.” Redmond has no idea why he stole the Whomper. He guesses his extreme dislike (okay, hate… so much hate) of the school’s most popular teacher probably has something to do with it. To his surprise and delight, the hottest girl in school, Elodia Cruz, hates him too. Soon, Redmond’s small band of misfit friends joins up with Elodia and the most popular kids on campus to hold the Whomper for ransom, pull off an elaborate, broad daylight heist to steal something even bigger from Mr. Street, and expose their teacher for the scumbag he really is.
