Summary
Piper Pájaro and Sloane MacBrute are two 13-year-old girls with very different lives but very similar secrets. Popular, outgoing Piper is strong. Like, ripping-the-doors-off-cars strong. She longs to be a superhero, even if she tends to leave massive messes in her wake. Snarky Sloane, on the other hand, is super smart. Like, evil-genius-smart. To help her family, she has to put those smarts to use for her villainous grandfather.

When a mission to steal an experimental technological device brings the two girls face to face with each other, the device sparks, and the two girls switch bodies! Now they must live in each other's shoes as they figure out a way to switch back.

Anti/Hero is a story that explores what makes a hero, how one can find friendship where it's unexpected, and what it means to walk in another person's shoes...literally!

Authors Kate Karyus Quinn (Another Little Piece, The Show Must Go On) and Demitria Lunetta (The Fade, Bad Blood) make their graphic novel and middle grade debut alongside artist Maca Gil to introduce two new and exciting characters to DC Comics!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Piper and Sloane both want to be superheroes, and both have superhero skills that will get them there. Together, superstrong Piper and supersmart Sloane could be magic, but they aren't friends and don't plan on it, until a piece of technology brings them together--literally!--when they accidentally swap bodies. As they desperately try to switch back, they also try to keep Sloane's evil grandfather far away from the device. Meanwhile, they face some classic middle-grade struggles: they're trying to win Bruce Wayne's school challenge (the prize is a trip to Antarctica!); Piper wants to see her missing parents; and Sloane wants to work around real scientists. Will they be able to keep everything straight so that justice can be done and one of them can win the prize? The artwork is cute, colorful, and very well detailed. The panels are easy to follow and will draw readers into the quick and quirky story. A great read for those who are ready for some new superheroes in the DCU."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Two dissimilar super 13-year-olds swap bodies in this introduction to a new East Gotham crime-fighting duo: the Hummingbird and the Gray Owl. Black-clad and pale-haired, loner Sloan MacBrute--known as Gray in the underworld--is the hyperintelligent granddaughter of the villainous Scotsman Bear, often working small jobs for him to help her mother make ends meet. Superstrong Piper Pájaro, of Latinx heritage, lives with her abuela and police officer uncle, and hopes that her superhero alter ego--the Hummingbird--will draw her absent scientist parents' interest. When each girl sets her sights on nabbing an abandoned medical invention engineered by Piper's parents, a body switch reveals its dangerous power. As they work to repair the broken device and keep it from falling into ill-intentioned hands, the girls' forced alliance helps each develop an appreciation for the other's unique skills and motivations; Sloan worries about her ill mother and her family's damaging legacy, while Piper's feelings of abandonment result in rash actions. Gil's expressive characterization and thoughtful use of color create a distinctly cinematic feel, akin to that of an animated series. For these appealingly rendered opposites, empathy and understanding inspires unexpected friendship and unstoppable heroism. Ages 8--12. (Apr.)■"
