"A heartfelt voyage through time and space." - Kirkus

Rodney Barnes and Selina Espiritu return for another Quincredible adventure, this time diving into the world of Voodoo. Quinton West is back as the would-be hero of his city New Orleans, battling against a new enemy who wishes to claim the historical land for himself.

When meteors fell to Earth Quinton West was gifted with the power of invulnerability. Seeing others take up hero identities, Quinton decided to help his city of New Orleans in his own way. Using his smarts, creativity and a bit of training from his mentor Glow, Quinton is on his way to becoming Quincredible, hero of New Orleans!

But even superheroes must do homework, and Quinton's newest assignment is to learn the history of New Orleans and Voodoo. An assignment that leads him to the mysterious Madame Adelaide who gives him a new task to fulfill for the good of New Orleans. Is Madame Adelaide a spirit? An enhanced human? And what is the evil that threatens New Orleans that Quinton must stop?

Booklist Review: "Volume 2 collects another 5 issues of Quincredible, continuing indestructible teenager Quin's journey alongside a new story arc. With school back in session, an assignment pairs Quin up with his crush, Brittany, to research the local history of Voodoo. Meanwhile, strange dreams connect him to the land's painful history of slavery, and his investigation into the subject leads him to Brittany's aunt, whose own "enhancement" has tethered her to the marshlands, the sacred burial grounds of countless forgotten souls, where real-estate developer Mr. Devereaux intends to build new commercial properties--and worse. Barnes' writing continues to shine in its exploration of relevant social issues and the internal vulnerabilities of its protagonist, all in the framework of a traditional yet fresh superhero milieu. Quin's parents add a strong storytelling layer as they reckon with raising an enhanced child, and in the end, their support makes all the difference. Espiritu's work remains exceptional, with Fitzpatrick's dynamic coloring impressing in its depictions of the present alongside flashbacks and a new, ethereal realm. More and more, a must-have series."
