The Last Kids on Earth meets Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children in this hilarious middle grade graphic novel debut set in a postapocalyptic world where everyone has unusual abilities except for a boy named Doom . . . who's going to have to be the one who saves them all.
Doom Thorax is supposed to be destined for greatness. His father is, after all, the best apocalyptic warrior to ever live and the leader of their pack. Unfortunately, in a world where the few remaining people all have special abilities, Doom is a painfully normal book lover (not to mention the only one who actually can read), making him constantly feel like the odd one out.
When a mysterious threat forces the adults to venture out to confront and destroy it, Doom's dad decides to leave him in charge of all the other children. Can painfully-normal Doom really watch over his sister Disaster, a superstrong wolf girl; his best friend Eisenhower, a giant intelligent ant; and - most stressful of all - his crush Eyeda, a girl with five eyes?
Doom's finally been given a chance to prove himself-all he has to do is survive babysitting a horde of superpowered children with nothing but his book smarts. What could possibly go wrong?
