Worm is the story of a young girl, who starts off dreaming of being a superhero. Well, to be more precise, she already has superpowers — but has yet to actually do anything heroic. Instead, she sits her introverted self in class, and is harassed by her more socially adept classmates.
And there is where our story begins…
But enough spoilers.
This is a world you will fall in love with, and discover its deepest crannies and farthest reaches… Unlike ASoIaF, this is told from (mostly) one perspective — with all the attendant storytelling possibilities that that provides.
To those who shy away from superhero tales: this is more like Xanth: a story where many person has a particular variety of magic, and it’s up to them to figure out what they want to do with it.
Some choose the side of good, others choose to be villains — and a precious few stride between (called Rogues).
As to the title? Well, our clumsy protagonist’s ability is to control insects…
This is not a static world, there are no reboots — it’s a comic book without a safety net. Made all the more dangerous by the author writing in serial form (It’s currently being edited for sale as an book). And best of all, it’s available online!
