On this episode of Everything is Canon, Steve talks with author Mike Chen about his new book We Could Be Heroes!
We Could Be Heroes is a fun and interesting concept that teases a larger world and a longer series, but for the most part keeps things focused on the two main characters. Mike expands their world then immediately contracts it, instead choosing a more intimate and personal look at several themes including loss and trauma.
In Jaime and Zoe, he’s crafted a pair of fantastic leads and the “villains” in the book, while perhaps purposely not fully explored, are wonderfully conceived anti-hero type characters that will definitely put our would-be heroes through their paces.
The bottom line is that if you’re looking for a fun sci-fi mystery that has lots of heart and takes a look at loss, trauma, grief, and addiction, this is a great place to start. And the more people that buy this book the better as it’s clear there’s more story that needs to be told!
Steve and Mike talk not only about that but also his love of hockey, his contribution to last year’s Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back, a bit of politics, and many other things.
