I, Crimsonstreak: The Big Cover Reveal!

They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but I think we all do it anyway.

I, Crimsonstreak does indeed exist! Now, we have a cover to prove it!

The next image is the full "wraparound" version of the can see the artwork on the spine and the copy on the back jacket. You should be able to click on the image for a larger version of the cover that will allow you to read the back jacket copy.

If you can't get it to work, here's what it says:
Framed by his father, "reformed" supervillain Colonel Chaos, super-speedster Chris Fairborne AKA Crimsonstreak, is sent to the Clermont Institution for the Criminally Insane. A hero surrounded by dastardly inmates and heartless guards, Chris struggles to keep his wits about him, until the arrival of some unexpected new "guests" at the facility provides him with a means for escape. Once out, though, he discovers that the world he knew is gone, replaced by a fascist, supposedly utopian state run by none other than Colonel Chaos himself.

With the heroes of the world locked away or fighting in a disorganized resistance, Crimsonstreak teams up with a snarky British butler and a teenage superhero-to-be. Together, the unlikely (and bickering) allies must take down Crimsonstreak's dad and set the world right again.

Thanks to Brooke Stephenson for the fantastic cover art. You can find out more about her here.

Look for I, Crimsonstreak on May 15 from Candlemark & Gleam! We'll have information for pre-orders very, very soon.
