How would you feel about a superhero story that makes Watchmen look like Superfriends? This is a superhero story that kicks Marvel's and DC's asses out of the multiverse. It's fast, emotional, tactical and above all it's consistent. In a world where people get their powers by triggering under extreme stress and/or trauma, the distinction between ''hero'' and ''villain'' is simply a matter of perspective. Widely regarded as ''the Game of Thrones of superhero stories'' Worm is an intense exploration of a world much like our own if a large number of people started getting superpowers starting in the 1980's.



After an exceptionally traumatizing event, Taylor Hebert finds she has the seemingly-mundane ability to control insects. Told primarily from her perspective, Worm follows Taylor as she decides to use these powers for the greater good - no matter what the cost. Her first attempt at taking down a supervillain sees her mistaken for one, thrusting her into the midst of the chaos and complexities of the 'cape' community of Brockton Bay. Cape politics, factions, rivalries, information warfare, and the individual problems of the unbalanced people beneath the costumes puts even the heroes' morality in question. Taylor's actions in the midst of this leave her in a position where she's forced to make some hard choices, facing the reality of having to do the wrong things for the right reasons.



''The only superhero work to show the world as worse because of superheroes''



''X-men has more continent busters, while Worm has more busted continents''



''You know all those times in superhero stories where you wonder why they don't just do *this* or *that* with their power? In this, they *do*''

Great Story

Worm is an excellent story that others should listen too my favorite character was Armsmaster and you’ll find out about all the great characters if you ready story

Rough around the edges but overall phenomenal.

The story of Worm is incredible and so on, but this audiobook project really is a blessing. Yes, some of the narrators leave a lot to be desired, and some chapters have some recording problems, but overall the amount of effort put in to this fan project is amazing and is a great service.

Favorite stories

This is now one of my favorite stories. Thank you for creating an audiobook that I could listen to during commutes and neighborhood walks. I fear the story length would have been too daunting for me to pick up an manually read, so thank you for creating an audio format that’s more palatable and allowing me to fall in love with such an incredible story. I cannot rate this high enough and I recommend this to any of my friends that I’m able to get to listen to me.
