With no other options, Owen is forced to take a job overseeing a group of corpies, corporate-sponsored Supers who do rescue work...as long as there are cameras around. Between a team that doesn't want him, fellow Heroes who don't trust him, and a nation that might not be ready to forgive the sins of the past, the return of Titan could prove even harder than the scandal that drove him away. But Owen will have to push on, because his new city is far from a peaceful one.
A mysterious enemy is attacking Heroes and growing steadily stronger. An enemy that only the once-legendary Titan might be able to stop. If he can manage to stick around this time.

Hands Up, I'm a Drew Hayes fan !!
Would you listen to Corpies again? Why?
I bought Corpies because I listened and enjoyed the 'Super Powereds' series (and yes, that is the correct spelling :) It has a nice overlap and takes a fringe character from that series and puts him centre stage in Corpies. I will definitely re-visit the whole series in the future (so many other new books to listen to though)
What other book might you compare Corpies to, and why?
I'm struggling to give you a comparable book, so I'll throw you a curve ball.. Check out Peter Clines '14' Fantastic story and great narration by Ray Porter, you will love it
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Who doesn't love a fight with a building sized Automaton
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me chuckle at times, I'm an old misery guts, I don't do laughing :)
Any additional comments?
Another Powereds spinoff will be greeted with pleasure

Wow, loved it!
I've read the two Super Powered books, and enjoyed them--they seem almost written for use as Audible titles. For the first time I realized that audio books may be driving certain areas of literature. I like long books with great characters and clever, innovative, worlds.
This one starts on an awkward premise, but it never becomes uncomfortable. I don't like sex mixed into my action/adventure/fantasy/sci-fi novels, and this book doesn't cross the line. It maintains the issue as a personal challenge the main character deals with--and like so much of the story, shows how character and determination are what makes a person awesome, and that sexuality is just a part of a very complex person. It isn't about this--but it is addressed.
I came away having really enjoyed the book and having great respect for the author as he dealt with real world issues in a very fictional--yet enjoyable--world where heroes are part of the people landscape.
Highly recommend all three books--with this one as good as the other two.
Bring on more.

Doesn't spoil upcoming Super Powered books!
I was both eagerly anticipating and dreading Corpies release. If you've finished Year One have no fear, the spoilers in Corpies are very, very minor. Time-wise it seems to take place during Super Powereds Year Three, but it avoids all but two very minor spoilers, one of which is painfully obvious and the other very easily missed.
The book is great. It does a lot of great world building, giving a wealth of information about the world of Super Powereds and how it works. The story itself is as original a super hero story as I've ever read. It really deserves a place along side Watchmen (graphic novel, not the dreadful movie). I'm not sure if Drew is planning to continue the story of Titan and/or the corpies, but I'd read it in a second.
